About me

DKK Int Dogshow in 2012 the day Sessan became International Show Champion

I was born in 1972 in Copenhagen/Denmark.

I started my dog life back in the late 70's after we moved to the country site in Nysted located in the south of Denmark.
 4 year old my parents and I got our first dog a Tricolour Collie bitch, and after a couple of years the household grew to 5 Collies (3 of own breeding) and 3 Cats.

During the 80's We moved a little closer to the "civilization" again and ended in a small village just outside Ringsted about 40 minutes drive from our capital Copenhagen.
I came along when my parents did show our dogs or went to visit friends in the dog inviroment. I still remember some of those "strange" dog people, with  loads of dogs and and prices and Ribbons in the homes I went to as youngster.

Back then breeding was taken much more lightly and I remember that only thing needed to get a pedigree on the Puppies was "Sufficient" at a Dogshow. No Health results were requiret.
Luckily this have changed during the late Eighties and beginning of the  Nineties.

For me our Dogs, Cats and other Animals have had a big influence on me through my live both when growing up and also in my adult life until now.

When i moved away from home I brought with me our youngest Collie Chickadee ( Dee Dee). She was my comfort in my daily life. After she passed away i got a Mutt/Crossbreed. Conrad who had up til 5 different Breeds in him.
this was to much for him to handle, so when he became 10 month old I desided to led him go because he became aggressive and wanted to bite other people.
My experience with him made me promise myself never to get a cross breed again.

After this experience i lived a couple of years without a dog, But i missed this so much. So in 2000 I got a Flat Coated Retriever "Chico". I chose this breed because I wanted an active and intelligent dogs that i could also do some agility with. Chico and I did have a lot of fun on the Agility field, we never came to actually compete and that i do regreat a lot today.

My first meeting with a Toller was in 2002 at the same recreation park where I walked with Chico. A young Toller bitch went there also. She was a very sweet girl. Didn't think about getting a Toller myself back then.

In 2005 we began looking for one more dog in the household. I wanted a dog that was a little smaller than a flatcoat, but still super intelligent and energetic. We came across the Toller again and desided that it was the right breed for us.
I had been searching for some kind of hobby to do with our upcoming toller and desided to try out "gametracking".

In end beginning of september Noah moved home to live with us. He was perfect together with Chico and they complimented each other in every way.

Noah "Tuldahl's Noah" was an magnificient dog with loads of intelligence. he loved to work and he showed so great abilities that I ended up getting a big interest for both field work and gametracking.

The other picture to the left shows me and Noah training by the water.

With Noah you could go where ever you wanted. only my inexperience stopped us along the way. and while he showed elite work when practising at home we still worked at open level in both field trials and gametracking. And i learned that a Toller you have to be careful not to train to much. The last year he lived we began to train Agility and it was so much fun for us both.

Noah was the reason I desided to get into breeding and in 2008 i bought my kennel name REDBORN a tribute to my Noah who in every way was my "Red Born" dog.

Noah sired 2 litters and I was lucky to get a daughter of his to stay with me here at home. Noah was my foundation stud for the kennel, even though he died very young in an accident I have been very proud to se his Daughter Sessan beeing the dam of my first generations of Redborn puppies.
Now her daughter Vicky is going to be the dam of my second generation of puppies in 2018.


Some wise words from a breeder

I am a dog breeder. I spend a lifetime learning pedigrees, going over dogs, talking, and learning from those in my breed and those outside it.
I raise each litter as if I gave birth to them and spend an equal amount of time finding them loving forever homes.
I only bring puppies into this world that I think will be the healthiest (mentally and physically) and best examples of their breed.
I support each family who chooses one of my puppies and let them know they are now a part of our extended family.
I treat them all well.

I am there if one needs to come back and will aggressively pursue the return of one of my dogs if it's in the wrong place.
I support my breed in rescue and education. I hold them when they arrive and leave this world.
I share my knowledge and socialize my dogs so that they will be the advertisement for my dedication.
I don't keep track of the money and time I put in to my love of dogs, it would not be a true measure of how I feel.

The price I charge for my puppies is never profit, but investment in the next generation. I am not ashamed of who I am...
I work hard at being a good dog breeder and encouraging others.
I am a breeder and I am proud of it. If we don't support each other - we are doomed as a fancy.
