CV: I was born in Ukraine and since my childhood dogs have always been very much in the picture. I acquired my first purebred dog well over 35 years ago, at the age of twelve. That Rough Collie bitch opened the doors to the world of Cynology for me and since then my life-long involvement with dogs started. I became a member of the Cynology Club in my native Donetsk (Ukraine) in 1982 and since then passed a number of trainings including show judge course.
In 2009, after 14 years in the Middle East, my family moved to Bulgaria, I became a member of the Bulgarian Republican Federation of Cynology (BRFK) and decided to get back to my judging career. I am presently approved to judge all group 3 and 5 breeds.
I have bred and exhibited Standard Bull Terriers, Chinese Shar-Peis, West Highland White Terriers, Shiba-Inu and Akita-Inu. Our first Japanese Akita arrived in 1999 from Italy and our kennel was officially registered with FCI in 2006 under the name of Hachimantai. This name came in mind after my first trip to Japan in 2006, where I had a wonderful opportunity to meet some world-famous Akita specialists from a.o. the prefectures of Osaka and Akita. Since then we keep strong relations with some renowned Akita and Shiba breeders in Japan and imported around 50 Akitas from Japan, including one Meyosho winner, and several Shiba-inus. We have bred quite a number of national and international Akita-inu and Shiba-inu champions. Offspring from Hachimantai now lives in a.o. Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, UK, United Arab Emirates, USA and Vietnam.
Both my husband Evert and I are members of Akita-inu Hozonkai (AKIHO), Nihon Ken Hozonkai (NIPPO) and JKC. Since 2012, when we established the Akita and Shiba-inu Club of Bulgaria, I’m in charge of all breeding and pedigree matters of the Club. I am also a member of the Bull Terrier Club with our one and only Miniature Bull Terrier bitch imported from England.
