As long as I can remember, dogs have always been in my life. As a child, I had a nickname Puppy Mum, as many strays found temporary shelter and help under our roof.
I understand that fostering and helping is a human duty, but how to love a dog was and still is the most important question for me. After all, a dog is not a human being, it does not tell you anything. Or rather, it will, you just have to understand what it says. Dogs do not aim to be human; however, they want love, attention and do things together with their owner. To understand this and get other knowledge, I regularly attend workshops, trainings and cynological camps. I get more experienced by being with my dogs every day.
I am a trainer of the Lithuanian Kennel Club, a canine therapist, a co-founder of the Canine Freestyle LT club and a judge of Dog Dancing competitions (FCI). These positions and various cynological activities are my incentive to get deeper into the nuances of the dog world.
Arti Toli is a small dog kennel, which includes me and my dogs living with me. I rarely breed them, and their welfare
and health are critical for me. I appreciate excellent temperament of my puppies, their correct anatomy and other things that indicate the standard of the breed. I highly value the proper socialisation of puppies, which is the foundation for a happy life. I choose new homes for my puppies responsibly and I am very keen to know how their fate has turned out.
Arti Toli kennel is registered with the International Federation of Cynologists (FCI), registration No.2/21, the Lithuanian Kennel Club (LKD), and the State Food and Veterinary Service, registration No.LT77-13-356. I am a member of the Canistherapy Association and a co-founder and a member of Canine Freestyle LT.
