I grew an interest for hunting during the 1970 and bought my first huntingdog, it was a Finnish hound. The dog got great success both in the show ring and on the hunting test and became a champion. She was an outstanding dog and left many champions-offsprings.

In our kennel TRAJENS we have breed several successful dogs. Today, it is mainly focus on dachshund, but we also have French bulldog in our possession. In our breeding work we focus on healthy and breed typical dogs with a nice temperament.

Jean-Francois Vanaken - Belgium
Since he was young, there were always dogs in the family. Cristian’s grandfather brought about his general love of dogs as he was a huge dog lover who also offered him his first dog, a small, red spitz type.
Cristian started to breed English Cocker Spaniels in 1988 and this was followed by American Staffordshire Terriers since 2001, Miniature Bull Terriers and very recently Chihuahua with his wife Madalina.
He first went to a dog show in Bucharest in 1981 and it was the decisive moment in his evolution in the canine world! That was when Cristian was “infected” with this virus and he believes that it will never “heal”!
He bred English Cocker Spaniels for 15 years. A lot of Cristian’s breeding received excellent results, both in national and international shows. He has managed to monitor them up to the fourth and fifth generation. Unfortunately, due to judging invitations and commitments, Cristian had to curtail breeding, but continued as a dog owner. It is better to know when to stop rather than do things half-way.
Cristian became an FCI judge in the year 1992 and an all-rounder judge in 2005. He has the approval to judge all FCI recognized breeds and he has had the honour and pleasure to judge in these last years at many major European and World FCI dog shows, and almost all FCI countries around the world.
Since 1988 Cristian was the secretary of the English Cocker Spaniel Club in Bucharest and since 1996 until 2005 he was the General Secretary of the Romanian Kennel Club. Cristian is now the President of the Romanian Kennel Club and Chairman of the Metropolitan Area of Bucharest Kennel Club. He is also member of the FCI Judges Commission, Working Group for FCI Reformation and AKC recognized overseas judge and member of American Dog Shows Judges Association.
Cristian says the most important thing is that you truly love the DOG. If there is this feeling, the rest just comes naturally, with a lot of hard work and lots of passion. A lot of time must be dedicated to study and exemplary behaviour towards exhibitors and the organizers. Each moment of judging brings him a huge responsibility for what he says and does.
In 1986 I became the President of Hunedoara County Kennel Club, and also a member in the Romanian Kennel Club’s board. From these positions, I have organized various shows and many other canine competitions. During 1996-2001, I had the honour of being elected President of the Romanian Kennel Club.
I have been nominated as all-rounder judge in 2005 and, the same year elected as vice-president of Romanian Kennel Club, function I assume until today. As international judge I had the opportunity to judge in more than 50 countries all over the World. All this years I had the pleasure and the honour to judge some important events as European, Asian section shows and World Dog Shows and I consider myself the proud inventor of the most well-known Romanian Dog Show … Dracula Golden Trophy. One of my ambitions was to be able to judge in all F.C.I. official languages to which I can add the Italian, Hungarian and Russian.
In 1998, at 25, I started judging Spaniels and Sighthounds. At that time I wanted to influence the evolution of the breeds I liked in the way I thought is right. I wanted to put my type over other types. As every youngster I had very strong beliefs which was good but obviously not enough. Thank God I was polished by time and experience. Meanwhile I was involved in Romanian Shepherds at the time we were traveling around the country measuring them and working on the official breed standard. Later, I took Terriers, Retrievers, Dachshunds, Schnauzers and then, year by year, all the other breeds until I became an all-rounder. In the past two decades I judged specialty shows, international all-breed shows and Best in Shows all over Europe.
I wrote several articles about genetics, colour inheritance and morphology of the dog, Azawakh, English Cocker Spaniel and Carpatin Romanian Shepherd breed descriptions for various magazines and for breed club seminars worldwide. I contributed to writing the first Carpatin FCI standard and the new Azawakh FCI standard. As Vice President of the Mures County Kennel Club from 1997 to 2009, I was one of the organisers of the first editions of the, now famous, “Dracula Dog Show”. In 2006, 2015 and 2017 I was awarded the Romanian Kennel Club medal for my contribution to the romanian breeds and to the development of the romanian cynology. In 2017, after 30 years, I was named a honorary member of the Mures Country Kennel Club.
In my private life I am physician living with my wife and daughters here, in Targu-Mures, just around the corner ;-)
Kelemen Atilla - Romania
Since his childhood we was devoted to dogs starting his career with a dachshund, breed that he owns and breds in present too. His kennel name is von Jagerbart. In the past 50 years he owned other hunting breeds too. He is a veterinarian doctor, representative in the romanian parliament, and he was the first all round judge in Romania. He judged in many FCI countries.
As a child I was surrounded by dogs as my parents have bred Hungarian Puli under the name of “Regeni kennel” since 1973. However, I did not maintain the family tradition in breeding Hungarian Puli and I purchased my first Airedale Terrier in the middle of the1980’s, a breed I admired whenever I caught sight of them at the dogshows of the 80’s. Thus, in 1988 I founded my own kennel under the name of “Nyaradmenti”. As years were passing Airedale Terriers were followed by Wirehaired Dachshunds beginning with 1989, and in 1990 I imported in Romania the first Welsh Terrier named Villamgyors Bella. Unfortunately at the beginning of the 90’s the quality of Airedale Terriers in our country was so low that even the imported males could not improvinge the breed. So in the middle of the 90’s I imported a few females from different bloodlines (Lutrahazi, van’t Asbroek, Aluzija, etc) and in 1999 also the famous male Am Ch Terrydale HK Shaireab Online as a new bloodline founder. While we still had to face some problems with the Airedales, the quality of the Welsh Terriers produced in my kennel was showing an ascending tendency towards modern lines. Big stars of the breed in that period were Nyaradmenti Caper, Nyaradmenti Gupi, Nyaradmenti Gina, Nyaradmenti Jill’s, Nyaradmenti Summertime, names that can be found in all the pedigrees of Welsh Terriers born in Romania. I kept a Wirehaired Dachshund as a family dog, that is why I had few litters but all of very good quality, marking the Dachshund breed in Romania. Here I’d like to mention Nyaradmenti Ibis Ribis, Nyaradmenti Idiot Icik (the father of the BOB in the European Dogshow Poznan). At present I breed miniature wirehaired dachshunds. At the beginning of 2000 we gathered our forces with the young kennel of Happytails. This co-operation lasted till 2008, and as a result at the above mentioned 3 breeds we obtained world quality dogs with positive echoes in dogshows in USA, Australia, Russia and Europe.
M-am nascut in 1986 intro familie iubitoare de animale, in special caini si cai. De mica am participat alaturi de tata la expozitii canine nationale si internationale, expozand rasele Ciobanesc unguresc Puli, apoi Pointer, Rottweiler si Bullmastiff.
Afectiunea fata de animale m-a determinat sa devin medic veterinar, absolventa Facultatii de Medicina Veterinara Cluj Napoca in 2012. In anii studentiei am detinut Teckel Pitic sarmos, rasa care m-a determinat sa-mi incep cariera de arbitru chinolog cu grupa a IV-a.
Am devenit arbitru de grupa in 2013 si treptat mi-am extins competentele si pe alte grupe. Momentan sunt atestata pentru grupele I, IV, IX.
Este o placere deosebita pentru mine ca am posibilitatea de a arbitra din nou la DDS, deoarece aici am debutat ca si arbitru chinolog.
Dintotdeauna am fost pasionată de câini, crescând într-o familie iubitoare de animale. La varsta de 13 ani, am devenit proprietara primului meu Chow-Chow şi din acelaşi timp a început activitatea mea ca expozant. În anul 2009 am înregistrat canisa Majestic Sandial, importând de-a lungul timpului mai multe exemplare din rasa Chow-Chow, de mare valoare. Am promovat cu succes exemplarele din canisa proprie, obținând rezultate remarcabile şi numeroase titluri de campion. Am importat primul Chow-Chow varietatea cu păr scurt, înregistrat în Cartea de Origine Română. Sunt membru al Asociației Chinologice a jud. Mureş, începând din anul 2005. În prezent, sunt arbitru chinolog pentru rasele din Grupa V FCI.
In 1995, la varsta de 15 ani, am primit cadou de la mama mea, primul meu brac german. Din 1996 particip la expozitii, astfel incepand aceasta pasiune. Ulterior am importat alti braci germani din linii germane si am inceput din 2004 activitatea de crescator. Impreuna cu partenerul meu, crestem braci germani sub afixele Karpaten Irbis si Donau-Wirbeln. Produsii nostri sunt prezentati cu succes pe tot globul si sunt campioni ai multor tari: Australia, SUA, Canada, Columbia, Costa Rica, Spania, Portugalia, Romania, Bulgaria, Muntenegru, Cipru, Rusia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Filipine cat si campioni Asia Pacific, Asia si Internationali. In afara titlurilor obtinute in expozitii, produsii canisei noastre au trecut multe probe de munca specifice rasei, inclusiv faimosul examen al rasei Dr. Kleemann-Zuchtausleseprüfung.
Am devenit arbitru in 2008 si am arbitrat in expozitii internationale si nationale, cat si in cele mai importante evenimente ale rasei pe care o detin si cresc – Internationale Kurzhaar Prüfung (IKP) si Dr. Kleemann-Zuchtausleseprüfung, organizate de catre clubul din tara de origine a rasei - Germania.
