Bay Area Kennels: XL American Bully Breeder | California

Published

on

Bay Area Kennels

Who is Bay Area Kennels?

Tell our readers who you are, and where your kennel is located.
My names Jerry Robles. Our kennel name is Bay Area Kennels. We are in the heart of wine country. Our kennel has two chapters. Bay Area Kennel’s first chapter is run in Redwood City California. The second chapter is in Santa Rosa California. I run the chapter in Santa Rosa, CA. We are in the north and the south of the Bay Area. Our name came from the bay we live in. We needed a name that represented both our chapters equally.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
The XL American Bully breed is our main focus. We fell in love with the dog’s structure and size. I had seen several sizes of the American Bully, but wanted to stick to the most original with a twist of size. The American Bully is not like any other breed of dogs that I have came across. This breed is very loyal and their temperaments are amazing. I have owned several other breeds and they want to be left alone, while the Bully wants to please the owner and always want to be around humans.

Although we breed only XL Bully’s, we are more focused on producing females. We have chosen this focus because with a solid foundation female, many doors can be opened. We noticed a lot of the attention goes to the males, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a kennel with females that get the bully world’s attention.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
Our dogs are on a raw diet. We live in a county where cattle and hunting is common. We use this to our advantage, and always shop around for raw meat such as; cow, rabbit, deer, goose, ducks rabbits, fish, quails and chicken. We also use veggies and fruits that we mix in with the meat. As well with the raw diet we love to use Bully max and the supplements. They give our dogs that extra boost to promote good health.

What is your favorite bloodline?
One of our favorite bloodline is Razors Edge. Growing up and seeing the structure of that bloodline really caught my attention. The structure and body type of Razors Edge to me, was the closest to the American Pit Bull. We stuck around that bloodline and was able to get our new generation of the American Bully XL started.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
We currently do not show our dogs, because we are still trying to produce a female that will WOW the bully community. We feel that once we have a female, with the look and body structure we are dreaming for, is when we will stop breeding and focus on shows. That is when we will let people see our creation of females.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Value your dogs as if they are your kids. Don’t use them and toss them away after. Care for your dogs, and they will return the love in so many ways. We love our dogs and see them as family.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Focusing on what you want in your program and the specific style you’re looking for. I wasn’t always sure on the look I wanted. It took a while for us to think of what we wanted in our kennel. Finally, we got to thinking, and this is what led to us focusing on producing females that will surprise the bully community. Once a kennel knows what they want to produce, from there the breedings and choosing a certain stud will get simpler as you go.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Before buying a dog or starting a kennel, really think of what you want to produce, and why you want to produce it.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I really looked up to Remyline. I was able to learn how they started from a look of a dog, and started a bloodline. From there, I began to think about what I wanted to produce and why.

Tell us about one of Bay Area Kennels most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
We produced our girl Valentina aka Tina. She is our upcoming star, and we are really proud of how she is turning out. She is still a young pup, and we have high expectations of her to take our program to the next level.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
It would really make me happy to see the Bully Community become more united. We are all one big bully family. We shouldn’t see each other as competition but help one another in producing the look everyone wants in their program.

What separates Bay Area Kennels from the competition?
We don’t compete with kennels, because we understand everyone has vision in their program. We all have a look we want in our program. Our goal is to have females that other kennels will love to own and have in their program. We look up to other kennels that have top studs that we use in our program as well.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We really love the farmer life, and working with cattle and horses. I guess you can say we live a country life, and enjoy it more than anything. This allows our dogs to enjoy running freely and they will not ever need to be caged.

What motto do you live by?
We live by a biblical verse.
“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”
Don’t be jealous of you neighbor, but help them along the way.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I really have respect for Bully Girl Magazine, as they have brought together many kennels. Because of Bully Girl Magazine, I was able to connect with kennels on the East Coast. Bully Girl Magazine has opened the doors for many, and now the West Coast and East Coast bully community can communicate and are able to see each other’s dogs. This is what the bully community needed. Slowly we are coming together and helping each other grow.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed exotic American bullies. My daughter inspired me to get involved with this breed. She always wanted to get a bully. So after doing lots of research, my husband and I decided to invest, and create our own vision in the bully world.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I keep my dogs on a high protein diet. I feed raw meats and vegetables. In addition to that, I alternate between Liquid Gold and Puppy Gold on their dry food. This helps to maintain a healthy weight and shiny coat all year long.

What is your favorite bloodline?
There are so many great bloodlines out there. However, if I had to choose one, it would be Phenom blood. Most of my dogs have Phenom blood in them. In my opinion it is a very adaptable blood that produces consistent, colorful, and well rounded muscular dogs.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I do not currently show my dogs, but I plan to in the future.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
My advice for upcoming breeders would be to figure out what your vision is. Then do lots of research before you invest. You want to understand how different bloods react together.

I think the most difficult thing to overcome is the negativity between breeders.

I think it can be overcome by not focusing so much on what other breeders are doing in their yard. Just stay focused on what your vision is.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?

To me an exotic bully is a dog that does not fit the normal standard.

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
I think the moment is progressing in an amazing way, and I am excited to be a part of it.

I am a mother of two and a wife. So my hobbies outside of breeding are lots of family time and activities. We also enjoy going to the bully shows together.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think Bully Girl Magazine is great! They have an amazing outreach and are doing big things by helping better inform people on the bully breed. This helps to ensure that they are not banned or stereotyped. They also do a great job of keeping the bully community updated on upcoming events and shows.

Prophecy Bullies: XL American Bully Breeder | Colorado

Prophecy Bullies: XL American Bully Breeder

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is William Baker. Friends and family call me CJ. My kennel is not yet complete. Prophecy Bullies is currently located in Colorado, but we plan to relocate to Arizona in a month or two.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed XL bullies. What inspired me to get involved with this breed was my love for large dogs. I grew up with Rottweilers, and was always a huge fan of the XL bullies just by their appearance. I’ve been a fan since I was a freshmen in high school. It has been my dream to start up my own kennel and breed XL bullies.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
So like I said before, Prophecy Bullies is not yet a complete kennel, but is growing more and more everyday. We have a new addition to the pack coming real soon for the special Queen Zyra. However, I feed my girl Zrya Victor Nutro Pro, with raw meat such as chicken, beef, and pork.

What is your favorite bloodline?
I would have to say I am stuck between Royal bloodline and Gottline as my favorite bloodlines. However, if I had to choose it would probably be Gottiline.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I do not currently show my dog. Right now you can only see her on my Instagram @ProphecyBullies, with her gaining more and more fans everyday.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
I’m an upcoming breeder. So the advice I would give upcoming breeders is to just be yourself, and never stop fighting for your dreams and goals in this business. Hard work does and will pay off.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The hardest things to overcome in the bully game is networking and meeting the right people to do business with. Only because not all, but a lot of breeders are in this business just for the money and greed.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
To overcome this, in my opinion I say participate in as many dog events as possible with your dog or by yourself. Meet and talk to people. Social media has always been a great way to network and get noticed. When it comes to doing business with people in the bully game, whoever does business with Prophecy Bullies is now family and a part of my kennel. With a mindset like that you will only surround yourself with the right people to do business with and form a family in the bully game. A team can overcome everything together.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
One kennel that I look up to in the bully game is ManMade Kennels. I have been watching them for as long as I can remember because of their bullies size and beauty. I love how they always want to help other people and how they do business. This made me feel as if they have the same outlook of family and working together as I do. With that being said, that’s where I purchased my first bully.

Tell us about one of Prophecy Bullies main goals going into the year 2018.
2018 is going to be a great year. We have a new addition to the pack coming real soon. Prophecy Bullies is really about to take off in the bully game. One of my main goals for 2018 is to have my first litter with Prophecy Bullies. I want to give the bully game something to remember.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
Ten years from now I would like there to be less competition between everyone in the bully game. Instead I would like to see more of a teamwork, with us all coming together as a big family to produce the best bullies in the world.

What separates Prophecy Bullies from the competition?
What separates Prophecy Bullies from certain kennels is I’m not in this breeding business for the money. I am doing this because of my love and passion for this breed. For my kennel and I, this has been a huge goal and dream to breed these XL’s Bullies.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
In my own words, an exotic bully is a miniature American Bully.

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
In my opinion, I actually think the new exotic bully movement is different and interesting.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I work full time as an independent contractor driver. I also like to go to the gym and go on hikes with my pack.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think Bully Girl Magazine is one of the best bully magazines in the game. It was a privilege to be interviewed by your staff.  I am grateful for this opportunity.
