16.05.22 4 musketeers are born and growing fast


11.04.2022 One picture tells more than...

. We expect puppies by May, 15.

8.01.2022 After 2 years of planning we have reached the point where everything is ready for puppies to be born during spring this year. More details in section "Puppies"

During the pandemic, Bj has achieved several important titles such as FCI Group 7 TOP DOG 2021 in Czech Republic, International Beauty Champion C.I.B, FCI working certificate and hunting test prize I


24.04.20 Although our litter plans for coming summer were destroyed by COVID-19, we can announce our next litter, which will be born in Czech Republic to our young female Bj.

Bj aka Oldmansion Avalon Dazzle has been grown into a beautiful 3y old lady under endless love and devotion at kennel Ares Samarkan. She has already achieved much more we could ever wish for geting only "excellent" grades, winning multiple best of breed/best of opposite titles. She is also EST, CZE, HRV JCH, Baltic Junior Winner,  VHC at CRUFTS this year and  best female junior at World Winner Setter Special Show on 2018, following her brother who became Best Junior. We are extremely pleased with the Australian influence and would like to strenghten it  even more. The father of planned litter has been proven himself through several litters in Australia and was famous for his spectacular movement as well as our Bj. Our heartfelt gratitude to Australian friends Meg MacCormick, Bec Finlaison, Steve & Carolyn Bennett for help and advice.

26.08 Kennel meeting in the middle of Estonia - setters from 3 months - 10 years

25.07 Searching loving and dedicated family for our puppy-girl Discovery and puppy-boy Dyke!

Discovery is fearless (both in new situations and towards adult dogs), strong and also dangerously clever girl :D. This combination requires experience, lots of love and dedication from her new owners.Album of Discovery at different ages.

Dyke on the other hand has gentle and calm nature (for a Gordon setter) . He will be relatively easy to train and live with. We would love to see him in the showring and are looking for a family who would share our interest in dog showing.Album of Dyke at different ages.
