American Bully Kennel: Thizzface Kennels

Published

on

thizzface-kennels

thizzface-kennels-bgmState your name, and where your kennel is located.
Thizz Face Kennels based out of Northern California, Founders and CEO’s Hugo and Victoria Sanchez. Also, we would like to recognize our main members Rudy Tamayo, Luis Perez, and Rasuel Thomas along with our newest members on the east coast from Paterson New Jersey, Raymond Morales and Jesus Escobar.
What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed American Bully’s to get that standard pocket look, and basically the breed itself has inspired us to get as involved as much as we are. It’s not just about owning, breeding and showing them, but educating others who are just learning and are new to this breed. We are inspired by others who love the breed as much as we do. We are inspired everyday, because everyday something and someone new comes along.
What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
We use a split method of kibble and raw diet, plus vitamins, other dietary supplements, and fruits and vegetables. It’s all about balance.
What is your favorite bloodline?
We do not have just one favorite bloodline. We enjoy seeing them all, but if we had to give just one, we are most attracted to the Bullseye Most Wanted Manu bloodline, which is a Razors Edge.
Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
We currently have not been showing. We took about a year and half off from the ring for personal business and family reasons. However, we are working on getting things ready for this summer, spreading the love and working with our new members on the east coast. We will be back in the show ring soon, so stay tuned and watch out for us.
What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Pretty much, stay true to yourself and what you like and to your breeding program. Don’t worry about the hype, be open to new things, always keep it 100, and never be afraid to reach out and ask for advice from fellow kennels.
How do you think people can overcome the stereotyping of this breed?
There’s so much stereotyping with this breed and our breeders that my advice would be just to be yourself. Always get to know others on a real level. Don’t let the assumptions and judgment of others effect or define you or the way you run your breeding program. Always stay motivated at whatever you do.
Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
We personally look up to Ron Ramos aka Papa Pit, he was the first person we came in contact with when we went to our first show. He was the judge of that show and gave us our first ribbon. He has helped us with giving advice and some of the greatest tips on how to start our kennel and how to show or just work with our dogs in general. Ron has always kept it real, good or bad, he has a great heart and is always willing to help when he can, we have learned so much from him and continue to learn. Til this day he is still there for us anytime we need advice or just to bullshit. It could be about bully life or just life in general. Ron is a legend and has touched and is a part of so many lives. He’s been in this game for along time and continues to do what he loves. I hope to go as long as he has and one day become as humble and giving as he is. So, a big huge thank you goes out to you Papa Pit, for sharing with us, some of your sweet knowledge and for excepting us as part of your bully family.
Describe how you would want things, in the bully commuity to be 10 years from now.
I think for us, and this is our opinion, we would say for all the hate to stop. For people to stop trying to get rich off their dogs, while using them to get some kind of fame. It’s important to remember the real reason we breed and show, which is for the love, the fun, and the togetherness of the community. To be able to enjoy our time, share our knowledge, and give and take advice with open ears among all fellow kennels.
What separates your kennel from the competition?
I don’t think much separates us from others, because we are all in it for the same reasons: to show and have fun. However, the only thing I think may separate us would be is the fact that everyone has their own style and look that they go for. Also, everyone runs their breeding program differently.
What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We are about family and being outdoors, we enjoy spending time with our kids and those that are close to us. Victoria is involved with one of our local vets. She volunteers by helping with the boarding of animals and shadows the vet tech’s to learn more about the anatomy of our animals.
What motto do you live by?
“I may not be the strongest, I may not be the fastest, but I’ll be damned if I’m not trying my hardest.”
What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
We think its a great magazine. I love seeing all the topics you guys write about. Nothings too good or bad for you to publish. You talk about real shit, and its a great way to let everyone know what’s going on around the world. There’s something in the magazine for everyone, and you make sure not to offend anyone but still get peoples points across. We Love Bully Girl Magazine! Spread the Bully love!

The Allentown Bully Convention 5 Show

If you missed the American Bully Show this past weekend, don’t worry, Bully Girl Magazine has you covered with video and photos from the Allentown Bully Convention 5! Hosted by Bully Supplies and Hidden City Kennels, this show had a great turnout and there were bully breed dogs from all over. This was the 5th Annual Allentown Bully Convention and it has definitely grown along side the bully breed throughout the years. The theme for this ABKC American Bully Show was halloween, there were tons of people, children, and even dogs in full costume adding even more fun to this event. This was a family friendly event, so if you are considering bringing you little ones to the next one, they will definitely have fun. There was even a bounce house, which kept all the small children and their parents happy.

Bully Girl Magazine was in the building with all of new Bully Girl Clothing, and accessories. If you didn’t get a chance to come out to the show, or even if you were at the show and didn’t get a chance to stop by our booth, you can always visit our online store BGM Warehouse.

Iron Bulldogs | French Bulldog Breeder – Germany

Published

on

By

Iron Bulldogs - Germany

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
We are located in Germany NRW Rees am Niederrhein, and our kennel name is Iron Bulldogs.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed French bulldogs. We love this breed, because they fit perfectly into our family. We breed sporty, slimmer dogs, with longer backs, and more nose.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
Our breeders all get the same food. Vollmers Anti-allergy with Reindeer Meat. Our puppies get a little bit of everything – wet food, dry food, meat, etc. This way they get to know everything.

Iron Bulldogs - GermanyWhat is your favorite bloodline?
Of course, our own bloodline is our favorite.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Breeding should not be taken lightly. You should always act for the sake of the respective breed. Breedings should be well thought out, and you should have a goal. You main goal should always be health. Breeding costs a lot of time and money.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
The most difficult thing to overcome are other breeders, and the envy. You need a thick coat and must make your decision. There aren’t many honest friends amongst successful breeders.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
I’ve already been down this road. Now I have a small selection of breeders, whom I call friends and that I choose to exchange with.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I do not take anyone as an example. No-one can really look into the cards and you never really know who is genuine. I admire honest breeders who have come to a goal through their long-term work, and have not just bought their way to the top by the work of others.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
Most of all this year I am looking forward to our still outstanding cast of our own generation. From this litter we of course will reserve a puppy.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see everyone being fair to each other, and see more respect for health evaluations.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
Class instead of mass. Our puppies are a part of the family, just like our breeders. We are very transparent, and maintain very close contact with our puppy parents.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We don’t have much time for other hobbies besides the dogs and the family. Dog breeding is our biggest hobby. I’m still interested in photography, but only involving the dogs.

What motto do you live by?
Live and let live. One’s life is far too important to deal with the other.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
Bully Girl Magazine has a good approach. They have very interesting and informative content that runs worldwide. Keep it up!

Robyn Stunts: Bully Girl aka Motorcycle Stunt Rider

Published

Bully Girl Robyn Stunts

First off, we want to thank you for giving up some time in your busy schedule to do this interview for us. For those people who don’t know you, can you shed some light on your personal background and let us know what got you into the world of motorcycle stunt riding?
Of course! Thank you so much for this opportunity to speak with Bully Girl Magazine. I’m Robyn Diamond aka Robyn Stunts, and I’m one out of a handful of female motorcycle stunt riders. I started riding motorcycles in 2011, and started trying to wheelie in 2011 as well. I was born and raised in MA, and decided to move to CA in 2014 for the weather and change of pace. I’ve been lucky enough to land some really sweet gigs because of my wheelies. I’ve stunt doubled for Taylor Swift, rode in a French Montana video, and did a fashion campaign shoot with Armani Exchange – all on one wheel. Those are just a few of my fav gigs.

My brother turned me onto stunt riding. He used to do crazy fast wheelies on the highway, and I thought – wow he’s so cool I want to be like him haha. Once I got my motorcycle license, I met some riders that rode slower more controlled parking lot wheelies, and I decided to learn to do it too.

Robyn Stunts: Bully Girl aka Motorcycle Stunt Rider

Are you just naturally fearless, or do you ever worry about the risk of injuries that can come from stunt riding?
I would say I’m not naturally fearless. I’d say I’m right in the middle of safe and fearless. I like to do extreme things, get outside my comfort zone and push my limits – but that “be careful” voice kicks in a little more often than I would like haha. I def worry about the risk of injury, but I try not to let it get to me too much. I think you can get more injured just street riding, or driving a car. Most of my stunts are at a pretty slow speed. If I break something, it will heal.

What was the first street bike you ever rode, and how long did it take you to master your first stunt?
The first street bike I ever rode was a 2005 Honda CBR 600rr. 🙂 I still miss that bike. I sold that bike when I bought my stunt bike, because I didn’t think I needed two bikes. Now I know better haha. I have two and want about twenty more! I never did stunts on that bike. My first stunt bike was the same bike I have now – a 2006 Kawasaki 636. It took me about 6 months to “master” the wheelie. Ok, let’s be honest I am still not a master and never will be haha, but it took me about 6 months to easily ride a wheelie across the entire practice area.

What is your favorite stunt to do on a bike?
Scrapes! That is when you wheelie and scrape the tail (metal stunt bar) of the bike on the ground. I have titanium on mine, so it makes some sick sparks. It looks cool, feels cool, and it’s always a little challenging for me if I haven’t done it in a while… so it gets my adrenaline pumping.

Do you repair your bike(s) on your own, or do you stick to the stunt riding and leave that to the mechanics?
I actually do a lot of the repairs and maintenance on my own, or with the help of my boyfriend. However, sometimes I’m lazy and prefer to bring my bike to a mechanic for bigger jobs such as an engine swap – which I’m actually having done right now. It’s pretty fun to work on your own bike and understand how it works.

Has your popularity grown, due to stunt riding?
Only on social media, I think. I don’t really like to mention it randomly – but it does come up often in conversations such as when people ask “what are your hobbies?” When I tell them and then show them, I can see that some people go from semi-interested in me to very interested in me, haha.

Do you participate in a lot of motorcycle events?
I try to. I host a once a month all females ride and also go to local events. Sometimes I am in them, sometimes I just go to spectate. I would say in addition to the girls ride, I go on one large group ride or to one large motorcycle event at least once a month.

Robyn Stunts: Bully Girl aka Motorcycle Stunt RiderTell us about one of your favorite events to attend, or participate in.
Anything motorcycle related is my favorite, haha. I love performing at shows, going on group rides, or just practicing with my friends. Every show and event bring new experiences and opportunities, so I really can’t pick just one. I will say that my favorite types of events are now Hollywood doubling or stunt extra events. I love booking a job and going on set to perform. I have so much fun and get to meet some really cool people, and of course some sick celebs!

What advice do you have for any female looking to learn how to stunt ride?
Buy a bike, find someone local to ride with and go for it. Don’t make excuses, don’t give up. Just do it. If I can do it, anyone can do it. Just like anything else in this world that is worth it, it takes some time. If you feel it in your blood, you won’t need advice. You’ll know what to do and you will naturaly keep pushing yourself.

Outside of the bike scene, what are some of your favorite hobbies or interests.
Other than riding, I love to hike and keep in shape, whether it be some yoga in my bedroom or a bicycle ride. I love staying active. Love playing with my dog – a 13 year old Min Pin named MJ.

What do you think of the Bully Girl Apparel?
The apparel is really cute. I first saw it when my friend @nikki636 started rocking it. I love the old school jacket and the leggings. They look so good on her. I also like that they have the logo, but it’s not over powering. It’s simple and stylish.

What motto do you live by?
“You are only old when your dreams become regrets.” I love this quote/motto because often times I find myself saying, “I wish I did this when I was younger” or “I wish I got into such n such earlier.” This motto reminds me that you’re never too old to chase your dreams. It gives me the last bit of motivation I need to go for the things I want in life.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love it. I don’t have a bully, but I have a dog and I love all dogs. My boyfriend and I want to get a mini Bull Terrier for our next dog! Anyways, the magazine is packed full of gorgeous photos and good reads. I loved the article about misunderstanding the breed. I actually felt like I could relate to it personally. In the same way that people hear “bully” or “pitbull” and think bad dog, I feel like a lot of people hear “stunt rider” and think trouble maker or full of themselves. Stereotyping is unfortunate, especially when the stereotype gives a good thing a bad name. This magazine is awesome for bully owners, bull enthusiasts, and even those who may have their stereotypes about bullies. They should read up to learn more! There is so much passion that goes into this magazine, and so much passion from the owners to their four legged friends. <3
