Biography

2014 AWDF Championship 1st, 2nd and 3rd place are 3 Qenny Ot Vitosha sons! We are extremely proud! Something no one has accomplished before! Qenny sons Qenny Ot Vitosha ….let’s see where do I start, at 10 months old I knew he is amazing , at year and a half old I knew he will become the best. Qenny is the one and only American bred dog of any breed to ever win the title World Champion. In 2007 Qenny won the “triple crown” in dog sports – He became the All breed American Champion, All Breed World Champion and Belgian Shepherd World Champion, yes all 3 in the same year. He was only 6 years old, which made the situation quite complicated for me. Qenny had at least one more strong year to compete, but there was nothing else to accomplish! Something that I have not even dreamed of – not only accomplishing our goal to be world champions but actually doing twice in the same year! Wow!!! I do have frozen semen that Ot Vitosha Malinois will use at some time in the future. Qenny has produced a great number of super cool dogs, including some of our current stud dogs Ebor, Odin, Cadance, Chief. A son of Qenny became the 2014 FCI Chapion, Bomber was the DVG 2014 and 2015 Champion, Moolah was the USCA/WDC 2016 Champion, Ebor so far two times AWMA Champion and AWDF champion I can say with certainty he is one of the corner stones in my breeding program. Super pedigree to back up his temperament. Easy going , loves to chill , lives with cats and small dogs, kids and whatever else you would think of. When it’s time to bite , the world changes Qenny has the hardest and meanest grip you will ever experience. If you pay close attention to the sleeves in some of the pictures here, you would notice that they are squeezed like puppy toys. Another interesting fact of Qenny story is that I sold him as a puppy to a very good friend of mine Andy Kasubiensky, as the dog got older Andy thought he actually is somebody and that will be best if I take over training him and show him to the world. Of course I did, my other famous competition dog Django ot Vitosha was unfortunately already injured and could not compete as well. We made a deal and Qenny got to travel back and forth from Ohio to Florida so many times. The first time he came to me from Ohio he was sad and depressed. I have never seen this before in my life, a working ( crazy Malinois) that will become depressed and not want to play or even do protection?! This went on for about 10 days, if I have not seen Qenny before and work him on a seminar I would have thought that he will never get even an IPO 1 title. It was truly unbelievable. Me and Andy actually talked debating if I should just send him back, but we did not. We stuck to the plan and Qenny opened up slowly to me. He was still quite young to go and compete but the majority of his training was done, so we decided it was time to have him go back to his home for few months. We were worried, what if he becomes again an emotional wreck? He was happy and enjoyed every day of his vacation, then it was time for preparation for the first title. He came back and started it right where we left it off. Nothing was lost, it was great. From there on this is how it went, Qenny was going back and forth winning championships and having vacations. To prepare him for competition only took two to three weeks. We won Many championships with long brakes of 3 months and train 2 weeks prior to the competition. There so many cool interesting Qenny stories that I plan to write one day here, but here is one we are in France tracking in some village getting ready for the world championship. I laid a beautiful track and then went to the local bar to get a drink and wait for the track to age. We went back started tracking, … sure enough the farmer show up, and 4 cows are following him, waving at us rushing us to stop. Our track was also headed his direction so I thought why not at least try to get to the article. We ended up completing the whole track with the farmer following me talking and the cows walking around us and of course all over the track. It was a moment I wished I had the camera on.
