kennel Anunnaki - www.anunnaki.cz

Although I didn't have many dogs coming from my own breeding, many of them (besides other things) won Interchampion title, Championship from different countries, European junior winner, Club and Specialty show winners. Some of them are active in sports. There are canistheraphy ones and some have hunting exams.

I am really interested in health problems of our RRs. I have been making a database of them, trying to put people with same problems together, thinking about the sense and the way we are going through with our breeding.
I also attend to work in the Czech Rhodesian Ridgebacks Breeding Club (KCHRR) as main breeding adviser and in 2019 I become also a president of this club. You can find more information about our club on www.kchrr.com.

I became a national judge (breed specialist) after successfully passing the exams in 2012. In 2016 I was recognized by the International Judge F.C.I. I've had an honor to judge international, national, club and specialty show in different countries (Czech republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Australia)    

I have loved all living creatures all my life. Since the early childhood I have been interested in dogs' ethology, their training and breeding. I grew up with a Dalmatian, a Belgian Shepherd cross-breed, Slovakian Chuvach and German Shepherd. They formed my thinking and taught me to love all beings, the art of co-operation and love for Nature. My first ridgeback came to our family in 1996.

Being influenced by all that, it was logical that I have established a kennel in 1998. "ANUNNAKI" (a Sumerian word meaning "those coming from the sky").

Since that I have bred 9 litters of Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

kennel Qwandoya - www.qwandoya.com

My name is Hana Pankova and I live with my partner, two little sons and our ridgebacks near Prague, Czech Republic. I use to have 3-4 breeding bitches at home, but thank to dogs I have made some lovely friendships with nice people that own some of dogs from my breeding, that I have the pleasure to use also in my breeding program.

In 2008 my kennel Qwandoya has been established with goal to breed healthy, quality dogs that are balanced in both character and exterior according to standard. First Qwandoya litter was born in 2010 and that started my breeding passion. In the same year I started to work for the club as breeding advisor. Eight years later, in 2018 I have become president of Czech Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (CKRR). My vision was to correct public view on our breed in Czech republic. To show them that ridgeback is not only fantastic companion dog, but versatile breed suitable for training, sport and various activities. To show them that ridgeback is not only dog with symmetrical ridge and little of white colour, but also dog perfectly balanced in all aspects, elegant and harmonic. 

I try to transfer that opinion about breed to my own breeding program and I am proud to say that so far I have bred many champions of many countries (Czech republic, Sweden, Finland, Slovakia, Germany, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia), as well as interchampions C.I.B., grandchampions and BIS winners under Qwandoya prefix. Qwandoya ridgebacks are very succesfull also in working field (nosework, obedience, dog dancing, agility) and what I am especially proud about - in canistherapy.

I have always liked shows and showing dogs. Mostly because shows are great place of observing dogs and meeting with friends and breeders.
I finished my judging licence in January 2020. I am looking forward to judging, that provides different poit of view on dogs than from handlers perspective.
