We are a hobby kennel showing dogs and breeding the occasional litter.
We have three dogs:
  • Faraday, GCH CH Llondel Angel of the North CA FCAT4 CGC TKN, a bitch from Tesla's first litter
  • Kepler, GCHB CH Llondel Badly Drawn Lion FCAT CGC, a bitch from Tesla's second litter
  • Cassini, Llondel Faraday Constant CGC, a dog from Kepler's litter

Faraday is an AKC Grand Champion, having completed the requirements at the Santa Rosa show on 24th August 2019. She achieved the CGC title at the Vallejo show on 21st April 2019. She gained her FCAT title on 8th October 2021, only the second Leonberger to achieve this, and became the first to get an FCAT2 title in July 2022, followed by an FCAT3 on 16th April 2023 and an FCAT4 on 23rd July 2023. Her Trick Dog Novice title was awarded on 18th October 2020. On our Westminster trip in April/May 2023 she also picked up a Coursing Ability title at the Trenton show in New Jersey.

Kepler has now achieved her AKC Grand Champion Bronze title, completing the requirement at the Woofstock show on 7th November 2021. She passed her CGC test at Santa Rosa on 25th August 2019. She gained her DCAT title on 16th October 2020 and her FCAT title on 13th August 2023, the fifth Leonberger to get those titles.

Cassini is just starting his journey in the show and dog sport world, but we hope that he will go far. He has managed to get an AKC Puppy of Achievement award, as well as Best Beginner Puppy at the Leonberger Nationals in 2023. He was awarded his CGC title on 28th August 2023.

Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Tesla, Wolfen Next Top Model CGCA, who was our foundation bitch, at the end of March 2023, at the age of 10 years, 2 months. She will be sadly missed.
