We are a small kennel situated on 11 acres in Masterton, Wairarapa, New Zealand.
Sandra purchased her first Schipp in 1979 from Ataahua Kennels in Palmeston North and soon added a second Schipp from the Typhoon Kennels. Following her OE, Gemma from the Monsoon kennels joined the family. From then on showing and breeding Schipperkes became part of life. Sanlyn Kennels were established with the arrival of the first litter in 1982. For the next fourteen years we continued to breed, import and export with some success in the show ring. Since 1996 when Ch Sanlyn Uneeda Dream "Jonty" arrived on the scene we have had greater recognition in the show ring. Jonty was then followed by a number of successful Schipps who carried on the winning ways. In 2002 we imported our first dog from the Tumbleweed Kennels in Texas, USA. Am Ch Tumbleweeds Red Letter Day "Buck" very quickly made his mark on the show scene collecting his NZ title along with many group and in show awards. Buck's half brother Chase is following in his footsteps achieving many group and in show awards. Progeny from Buck and Chase are following suite and we look forward to the future and what lies ahead with the Schipps.
From the age of 10 Chelsea has been showing and helping out with the Schipps. Because of Chelsea a Tibetan Terrier has joined the family at Sanlyn Kennels. Chelsea has also helped out with showing and handling Labradors, Cocker Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, an Otterhound and many more. Chelsea has also done Obedience with Griffin the Schipp and Tana the Tibetan Terrier.
The dogs share the property with sheep, lots of chickens that come and go (thanks to the dogs), a few budgies and 2 cats which the dogs love to chase and climb all over.
