“Stabmeldys” is a small family kennel based in Lithuania and FCI/LKD registered in 2011. We live in the capital of Lithuania, beautiful Vilnius. We are just family of two, raising our dogs as family members. Our breeding is very limited and carefully planned.
I’ve been a member of Lithuanian Sighthounds Club (FCI/LKD member) for 10 years and the Club’s Board member in 2014-2017. Since 2017 I am a member of one of the oldest kennel societies in our country – Vilnius City Kennel Club (FCI/LKD member as well). I was involved in a dog scene since 1998, at first with schnauzers being schnauzer kennel assistant & handler. My interest in sighthounds finally led to a purchase of a whippet puppy today known as our foundation bitch Ch Haute Couture Tik Romantika. I value the true whippet type representing dogs with curvy “S” lines and moderate bodies, sporty and muscular.
Since 2016 I am LKD Ring Steward / Ring Secretary (a pre-requisite to become FCI Whippet Judge someday).
I have participated in LKD’s seminars on Practical Breeding & Basic Genetics in 2016, and myself delivered a lection “Breed Introduction: Whippets” in 2017.
