Bandzz Mini BullzState your name, and where your kennel is located.
I am Brandon Michael, the founder of BandZz Mini BullZ. We are located in Cleveland, OH.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed exotic American Bullies. It’s simple… “The Look” is what inspired me.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I maintain a mixture of kKibble, and raw throughout the year.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My top three are: Hazeline, Daxline, and the OG Miagi blood.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
We enjoy getting all of our dogs in the show ring. We also enjoy taking our children to the events, and they even show the dogs. It’s a family affair.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Knowledge is everything. Do your research before making any major decisions. It’s important to know exactly what you like, and what you are breeding for. Stick to your vision.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The loss of a dog.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
To overcome, stay dedicated and focused on your program. Keep producing awesome dogs. If we are talking studs, having frozen semen stored away might not be a bad idea. Partnering with a reputable vet is also a must.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I would have to say my boy, Chris Shannon with Savage Bullies, out of Dayton, OH has consistently been a huge help to me. I’ve never spent a penny with him, and he’s been nothing but family to me. Chris has always answered any questions that I might have, and has always steered me in the right direction. He is one of the most solid guys I have met through these bullys.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
One of my most memorable moments was attending the North Carolina, War of Exotics show. The building was packed. We caused a traffic jam at our Booth the entire Show. Our female “PikaBoo” took home two first place wins that day as well. It was a great time. This was the first Show our daughter was able to attend.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
Personally, I would like to see more breeders producing show quality micro exotic american bullies. It would also be nice to see more unity in the Bully world. The community could use more leaders teaching the newcomers.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
Our goal is to produce only the best micros, with a complete Bull in mind from the muzzle to the tail. This includes temperament, functionality, conformation, muscle tone, blocky heads, and mean mugs, while keeping them short and compact.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
Any free time that’s not devoted to the dogs, is spent with my Fiancé and our daughter. We get her involved in many events and activities. We would not trade these moments for the world.

What motto do you live by?
Family First!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
It’s a dope magazine, with very informative articles. It’s a great source for breeders to promote their bullys. BGM is our go to magazine for everything bully. I’m honored you reached out to me. Thank you!

Dawson Elite Bullies

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Christian Dawson and my kennel partner is Michael Dawson. Our kennel, Dawson Elite Bullies, is located in North Brunswick, New Jersey.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed.
We breed standard and classic American Bullies. I was inspired when I saw my first bully. I was like, “I need one of my own.” When I purchased my first bully, I noticed a bunch of people doing improper breeding. So I thought I can change this. The result was producing quality companions.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
In the morning, we feed our dogs kibble with coconut oil, and in the afternoon we feed them raw food with coconut oil.

What is your favorite bloodline?
On our yard, we have Gottiline and Razors Edge. We are seeking to incorporate the Mikeland bloodline.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
Yes, we currently show our female Krystal, and we used to show our foundation male Koba. Many of Koba’s offspring will be hitting the show ring next year.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Just be patient things will work out.

What do you think is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Finding a good foundation to start a kennel. A lot of people come into the game thinking, oh I’m going to go buy a male, then buy a female, and then I’ll have grand champion pups. Don’t get me wrong I used to think that too, but overtime I got more educated.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Be patient, study their bloodlines, and see which ones they want to work with.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
Ron Ramos, because he has given me so many tips, and he is very good at what he does. He is very knowledgeable with it comes to the bully breed.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
When our female Krystal took first place in the 9-12 month standard female class, and reserved best standard female at the Allentown Bully Convention 5, which was the first time she showed in that class.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I want cleaner and more correct dogs. I want the world to know how great the breed is, as far as companionship and temperament.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
At our kennel we focus on building a great dog to represent the standard American Bully. We don’t focus on building the bulkiest dog with the widest chest. All our dogs can function properly, and have great temperaments. We are working hard at elevating the breed.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I love to fish and play golf.

What motto do you live by?
Be the type of person you want to meet.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love Bully Girl Magazine, and think that it is growing more and more everyday. This is a great way to educate people outside of the bully world about the breed. It will also shed light on people that are doing positive things to elevate the breed.

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.

Iron Bulldogs | French Bulldog Breeder – Germany

Published

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!
