This website was totally renewed in beginning of 2006 even though the kennel has been running since 1986.

Denna webben förnyades totalt i början av 2006 om än att kenneln har varit i gång sedan 1986.

 

  Me and the kennel

My interest in dogs has existed for as long as I can remember. My first, own dog was an English Cocker Spaniel, born in 1971; he was a true sweetheart. He was followed by a Red Irish Setter, then a Dalmatian, later on Bullterriers and in the early eighties Longhair Dachshunds (all three FCI sizes) came into the picture. This was when Swede Sun’s Kennel was founded.

The realisation soon dawned that something important was amiss... it was of course the Basset Hounds! The first Basset Hound was welcomed to Swede Sun’s in 1986 and from then on I was hooked... completely addicted to this unique breed!

Through the years the kennel produced 62 litters of Longhair Dachshunds, the last of these in 2002.

Swede Sun’s Kennel produced an innumerable number of BOB winners, Hound Group winners and Best in Show winners from those beautiful little longhaired fellows. Apart from their great achievements in the breed ring, the Dachshunds earned 59 Breeder Group Honour Prize awards. Over the years these little ones brought so much fun and joy to the ring; one can only lovingly treasure the good memories.

In 1997 Swede Sun’s Kennel was awarded the Merit Gold Medal from the Swedish Dachshund Club for its meritorious contribution towards the breeding of top quality Longhair Dachshunds and improving the breed.

Nowadays Swede Sun's kennel just breeds Basset Hounds. Together with all the Bassets at the kennel lives as well Bosse's gundogs, kennel Wingmark's.

The kennel has so far produced 57 Basset Hound litters and I am still eager to further refine and improve the breed. My curiosity regarding this wonderful breed is still alive and well and it keeps me going.

My purpose is not only to breed Basset Hounds of distinguished breed type that are anatomically correct with excellent and free movement, but also, and most of all hounds with wonderful temperaments and sound health: all this to make them suitable as tracking hounds, for the challenges in the show ring and of course as beloved family members.

To be able to reach this I have tried to find all over the world the best possible blood-lines which then have been incorporated to the Basset Hounds in my kennel.

Those lines has given Swede Sun's Kennel the possibility to bred numerous Champions “all around the world”, 11 World-Winners,  2 BOB- and 1 BOS-winner at Crufts/UK, BOB/BOS-winners at the Hound Show/UK and all other different kind of titles. Also so many CC/CAC/CACIB-winners, BOB-winners, Group-winners and Best in Show winners so I even have lost the count of them. So far there are 101 Champions of Basset Hounds and more then 350 Breeder Group Honour Prize awards. Also innumerable Progeny Groups has been awarded with Honour Prizes.

It has been exported 109 Swede Sun's bassets to 32 different countries. Here you find more INFO about the kennel's conquests.

In 1995 the Swedish Basset Hound Society initiated a competition to select the top breeder of the year. Swede Sun’s Kennel has been honoured with this coveted and prestigious award for eighteen consecutive years (Top Breeder no.1) in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.

In 2002 Swede Sun’s Kennel was awarded the Merit Bronze Medal from the Swedish Basset Hound Society for its meritorious breeding of top quality Basset Hounds. The year 2005 it was followed by the Merit Silver Medal. The highest award, the Merit Gold Medal was awarded to Swede Sun’s Kennel in the year 2009.

As a continuation of my interest in dogs I got myself a ring steward license and also a complete hunting examination.

Shortly after this I qualified as an authorized FCI show judge as well. Further down this page you can see the list of the breeds which I’m qualified, by the FCI system, to award CC/CAC, and judge at Championship Show level. There you can also see some photos from different judging appointments around the world.

I have judged in following countries: Australia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and USA.

I have also earlier bred horses for nearly 20 years, BUT that is a story for another day...

click picture for more information  Jag och kenneln

Mitt intresse för hundar har funnits så länge jag kan minnas. Den första egna hunden var en engelsk cockerspaniel som var född 1971, han var en riktig kompis. Han följdes av en röd irländsk setter därefter en dalmatiner och senare bullterriers. På tidigt 80-tal kom långhåriga taxar (i alla tre storlekarna) in i bilden och med dem så startade Swede Sun’s kennel.

Men ganska snart insåg jag att något väsentligt fattades, givetvis var det basset hounds! Den första basset hounden införskaffades 1986 och sedan dess har jag varit fast, fullständigt hängiven denna unika ras.

Genom åren har det fötts 62 kullar långhårstaxar varav den sista kullen av dem år 2002.

Swede Sun's kennel har producerat ett otaligt antal BIR-vinnare, Grupp-vinnare och Best in Show vinnare från uppfödningen av långhårstaxar. Där utöver har det också visats fram 59 Hederspris-belönade uppfödargrupper med långhårstaxar. Det har varit så mycket roligt i ringarna med dem och det finns många underbara minnen att bevara.

Swede Sun's kennel belönades 1997 från Svenska Taxklubben med Utmärkelsetecken i Guld för framgångsrik uppfödning av långhårig tax.

Nuförtiden föds det endast upp basset hounds på Swede Sun's kennel. Gemensamt med alla bassarna på kenneln bor också Bosses fågelhundar, kennel Wingmark's.

Hittills har det fötts 57 kullar basset hounds på Swede Sun’s Kennel. Fortfarande är inte min nyfikenhet stillad för denna märkliga och samtidigt helt underbara ras så därför fortsätter jag.

Min avsikt och förhoppning är att föda upp rastypiska basset hounds som är anatomiskt välbyggda med utmärkta fria rörelser, men framförallt med härliga temperament och en sund hälsa. Allt för att de ska passa för såväl utmaningarna i utställningsringen eller som spårhundar samt givetvis också som älskade familjemedlemmar.

För att kunna uppnå detta har jag försökt att leta upp runt om i världen de bästa tänkbara blodslinjerna som sedan införlivats i kennelns basset hounds.

Dessa linjer har i sin tur givit Swede Sun's kennel möjligheten att föda upp talrikt med Champions ”runt om i hela världen”, 11 Världs-vinnare, 2 BIR och 1 BIM-vinnare på Crufts i England, BIR/BIM-vinnare på Hound Show även det i England och många andra olika titel-vinnare. Och så många cert/CACIB-vinnare, BIR-vinnare, Grupp-vinnare och Best in Show vinnare att jag faktiskt tappat räkningen på dem. Hittills finns det 101 champions med basset hounds och mer än 350 uppfödargrupper har visats som har blivit belönade med Hederspris. Även oräkneliga antal Hederspris-belönade avelsgrupper finns.

Det har exporterats 109 Swede Sun's bassar till 32 olika länder. Här hittar ni mer INFO om kennelns erövringar.

Året 1995 initierade Svenska Basset Hound Sällskapet en tävlan om Årets Uppfödare. Sedan dess har Swede Sun’s kennel varit Årets Uppfödare Nr.1 samtliga åren 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 och 2013.

Swede Sun’s kennel erhöll 2002 från Svenska Basset Hound Sällskapet Utmärkelsetecken i Brons för förtjänstfull uppfödning av basset hound. Året 2005 följdes Utmärkelsetecknet i Silver. Den högsta valören, Utmärkelsetecken i Guld tilldelades Swede Sun's Kennel år 2009.

Som en fortsättning på mitt hundintresse så blev jag ringsekreterare och läste in en komplett jägarexamen både teoretiskt och praktiskt.

Kort efter utbildade jag mig även till exteriördomare inom SKK/FCI. Längre ner på sidan kan Du se vilka raser jag är auktoriserad att döma. Där kan du också se några foton från en del domar uppdrag runt om i världen.

Jag har dömt i följande länder: Australien, Danmark, England, Finland, Frankrike, Holland, Irland, Italien, Norge, Polen, Portugal, Spanien, Sverige, Tjeckien, Tyskland, Ungern och USA.

Jag har tidigare också fött upp hästar i nästan 20 år, MEN det är en helt annan historia...
