I was born in Prague, Czech Republic. Got my first dog when I was 12 years old. It was present from my parents, Zizi was Standard Schnauzer pepper and salt female. She was imported from Georgia and was fantastic representant of her breed. I never competed in junior handling but I showed my girl ZiZi and later all my dogs since begining, by myself. So you can imagine that begining was hard, but because my mom was involved in dog world and bred Airedale Terriers and Afgan Hounds already before, it was more easy with her help.

In 1991 we made together with my mom our kennel name „ze ZAHRABSKE” and our first litter was born in 1992, out of 6 puppies which were born, 5 of them were champions and it was just begining my show and breeding carrier. Later I started show my dogs together with my new doggy friends and I traveled all over the world. In 2007 I met my husband Damir and I moved to Croatia where we live. Damir had his kennel name „SALTUS”, so we decided to put our kennels together and since 2007 we are breeding under kennel name „SALTUS ze ZAHRABSKE”.
