The story of my Pomeranian passion commences when I was a young child. I was fortunate to have an Aunt who bred and exhibited Champion Pomeranians. A great joy was to be able to nurse a Champion Pomeranian on the way home from a show. I now understand the reason why I was allowed to nurse the Pomeranian after the show. I became extremely passionate about the dream of filling my life with Show Pomeranians.
I have enjoyed the privilege of Pomeranian ownership throughout most of my life and feel this early exposure to the Pomeranian breed, in addition to many years of practical experience breeding livestock and working with stock horses on the farm has aided in my quest to breed superior quality Pomeranians.
Applying for a prefix in 1975, we received a postcard from my mother-in-law, who had returned to visit her previous home and relatives in Scotland. This card originated from a place called "Dochlaggie", on the spur of the moment this name was submitted. I had previously submitted at least 40 names and they had been rejected. At last an accepted prefix and hence the Dochlaggie Pomeranians came into existence.
Dochlaggie's client list includes a long list of of very high profile celebrities worldwide, who have chosen to share their life with a Dochlaggie Pomeranian.
Dochlaggie is an ANKC registered breeder with Dogs Victoria. We own a beautiful property in Northern Victoria, set on 100 acres with new, spacious council approved & registered indoor/outdoor facilities specifically designed to keep our Pomeranians comfortable, happy & safe. Pomeranians used in our breeding program are registered, health screened, micro chipped and dna profiled.
Exceptional quality Pomeranian babies are often available to caring owners. Puppies are reared in our home as part of the family. Puppies leave after a full health check, vaccination, micro chip & regular worming.
All puppies are registered with Dogs Victoria. This certifies the puppy is a pedigree purebred.
As well as the challenge of breeding quality orange Pomeranians, I also have a passion for the coloured Pomeranian. I have spent the last 20 years working to breed quality white, parti colour, cream sable and wolf sable Pomeranians.
