Breeders of 53 Champions - So far!


Am. and Can. Ch. Nordic's Kismet O'Cynosura, ROMC. Kismet was our foundation bitch, pictured here at the 1990 SCA National in Birmingham, where she was named Winners Bitch by the late Sam Pizzino. What a memorable and exciting win that was!


Am. and Can. Champion
Nordic's Blue Ice Hobby Horse,
BISS and multiple group winner.
"Icy"
Icy had terrific show career. She was handled by us and by Tom and Andrea Glassford. She was #2 Samoyed bitch during her days as a special. Her three sons in her only litter were all champions, Ch. HobbyHorse Nordic Icecapade, Ch. Hobby Horse Nordic's Ice Bear, and Ch. Nordic's Hobby Horse Glacier. She was everything we could have dreamed of as a show dog, a beloved pet, and a dam of champions.

We have been successfully breeding and showing Samoyeds in conformation and obedience since 1983. To date, we have bred and/or owned 54 champions. Our dogs have earned numerous obedience titles, both American and Canadian, including a CDX. We had the 1990 National Specialty Winners Bitch, bred by Gail, Am. and Can. Champion Nordic's Kismet O'Cynosura, ROMC and Amercian and Canadian Champion Nordic's Blue Ice Hobby Horse, who achieved the rank of #2 Bitch, and was a multiple BISS winner. She is featured on the side bar throughout our kennel web site. Our foundation sire was Am. and Can. Champion Nordic's Magic Hobby Horse, who is shown below winning the Stud Dog Class at the SCA National under judge Duvella Kustler.

We got our start in Samoyeds through Gail Mathews, of Nordic Samoyeds, and have developed a line that is consistent in style, type, and temperament., Education and professional experience in the genetic sciences have given us an edge to understanding animal husbandry, and we have put it to work for us in our breeding program. We would love to meet you and show you our dogs!
