Confidential Kennels | CaliforniaState your name, and where your kennel is located.

My name is Angela Clark and my kennel Confidential Kennels, is located on an acre in Southern California.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?

I am devoted to the preservation of the original Cane Corso (pronounced KAH- NAY Korso) other wise known as an Italian Mastiff. The first time I saw one of these dogs I remember feeling as if I was looking back in time at a piece of history. This was long before they where recognized by the AKC in 2010. Shortly after I imported one from Italy and the rest is history.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?

I am a big fan of holistic feeding. I know and believe that humans are at there best weight and health when they are eating natural unaltered food. For this reason I choose to feed my dogs what they would eat in the wild. Raw feed along with joint supplements. I choose joint supplements without calcium as calcium inspires growth at a rapid rate which can effect large breed dogs joints.

What is your favorite bloodline?

I like to stick to the bloodlines that respect the origins of the Cane Corso and who are responsible to creating some of the most profound Corsos in the world. With that being said there are very few here in the USA ,therefore I have searched around the world and imported some of the most correct , Imposing Corsos for my breeding program. Maxi Louzan(Del Corsoclub Kennel) from Argentina specializes and Judges the correct Cane Corso, Andrea Corbara and Morena Mazzotti(Dell’Impero Mya Kennel) from Cesena Italy professionally breeds and shows outstanding corsos, Juan Morato (De La Mirage De Torrellas) out of Barcelona Spain who owns the 2015 world Ch X Msn when he won the World Championship. pronounced KAH- NAY Korso) Italian Mastiff,Letecia Gonzales(Declino di Bayonne Kennel) out of Spain with a breeding program unparalleled to none. as well as Istvan Voros(Onix Icon kennels) who works for Purina out of Romania … All are wise beyond there years and committed to bettering the breed.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?

I have an amazing handler Mercedes Messer who shows my dogs . I will sometimes to small shows through out the year , but prefer the specialty shows for Corsos . Like the regional, nationals and my all time favorite the International Cane Corso Federation Extravaganza !! Where you are really able to gage where you stand as a Corso breeder. Over 150 Corsos from around the world compete. The wins are real.. All SERIOUS Corso breeders attend to know where they stand and to better themselves and there program.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Knowledge is key.. Do as much research as possible . We all learn from experience so dont forget you are going to make mistakes. Put your dogs health and well being first. Be disciplined and selective. You want to pick the heads of the best breeders around the world and see what they are doing right. Implement what you think you can improve. Work hard and be honest. last but not least done take advise from anyone in the industry who is not where you want to be.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
I think for any large breed is the stero type. the public will assume because you are a breeder you do not care about your dogs or that you are responsible for the millions of dogs in shelters. Responsible breeders screen future owners, contract there dogs and microchip them. We are prepared to fork out the money to rescue the dogs if necessary and peruse action against those who harm our pups.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
We can overcome stereo types by our actions. People will judge you based off what you do. Be responsible and give back to the dogs we love that give so much to us by protecting them and preserving them.. After all they are mans best friend. In my case woman’s.. lol

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

In the Corso world I would have to say that I have a lot of respect for Maxi Louzan. He is a professional breeder and Judge . He has devoted his life and time to the cane Corso. He knows the standard and importance of a correct temperament, angulation and structure.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2016 so far.
My Kennel did really well this year at the International Cane Corso Federation Extravaganza Show. Five out of six of my dogs placed first in there class and two different junior females getting Best of Show Junior on two different days and top overall opposite.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.

I think that there is always room for growth and bettering our programs. When you choose a breed you are specializing.. You should know the maximum about it so that you can educate the public and new breeders. Instead of outcasting them teach them how important it is to be responsible and what is correct for your standard. This will help to preserve everything you work for so we are not counter productive. If they choose to breed being mean to them will not stop them . It just makes them do it blindfolded. I personally am not afraid of competition and understand the need for growth and knowledge. The new-bee may become a competitor in the ring one day and may drive me to work harder and push myself.

Confidential Kennels | CaliforniaWhat separates your kennel from the competition?

Dedication separates me from most. I do this full time all day every day. I live and breath Corsos . I am an expert in the breed. When people around the world think or Corso breeders they relate my name to them because I know them and I know the breed as I solely devote myself to them. I hear a lot of breeders say they, ” Do not due this full time ‘,or its ,”Not there only job”. I never think this is a good thing. It shows lack of commitment and confidence. I am 100 percent devoted to Corsos and choose to focus my energy solely on what I love. Most investors will not invest in entrepreneur if they have other jobs or projects because it shows they are not fully committed and they done believe in there inventions, products or what there producing. Now my dogs are far from products, but I am a true third generation professional breeder who is fully committed to my program and my dogs, My commitment shows in what i produce and how my dogs are treated. My dogs reflect my hard work and responsibility. This is my passion and I know it better than anyone.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?

I love to hike with my dogs, swim and go shooting. I am actually a sharp shooter.

What motto do you live by?

I am a huge Les Brown fan… ,” Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss , but because they aim too low and hit” We should all stretch ourselves because during this times of trial we find out what we are really capable of.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?

I think its amazing of Bully Girl Magazine to accredit women in the way that they deserve. Its hard to be a woman in this industry. Bully Girl Magazine recognizes the strength, skill and endurance it takes to earn the respect of not just our peers but the world in the male dominated program . I think Bully Girl Magazine is a huge advocate for all woman who are successful or up in coming in the bully world and/or dog world!!! I appreciate the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge with the public and hope to inspire other women as well.

My name is Alejandro Ruiz-Gallegos. The name of my kennel is Delta Bulldogs. You can find us in Los Angeles, California.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed English Bulldogs. I fell in love with this breed because they are one of the most loyal dog breeds. They also have a great temperament.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
The typical nutrition for my dogs consist of a raw diet. I feed my dogs 2 lbs of chicken, that my partner grinds for me. With the grinded chicken I mix an egg. I will also include some shredded carrots for the puppies in their diet, as well as add some shredded carrots for my adults throughout the year.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I do not currently show any of my dogs. However, I do plan to make my first appearance at the bully expo on the 24th of February, in San Bernardino.

What advice does Delta Bulldogs have for any upcoming breeders?
The only advice I have is to take the time to study the breed. Look for the best lines before you get your foundation dogs. It may take a while, but be patient. Trust me, it will be worth it in the long run.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The most difficult thing people will have to overcome is investing large amounts of money for the right foundation right from the start. Investing will leave a dent in your bank account, but that money will come back. If a person chooses to dodge this obstacle by purchasing low quality dogs, it will end up costing that person more in the future.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
The way to overcome this is to just take time. Be patient and save the money you will need to obtain the best foundation for your kennel. I understand most people are real eager to start. However, it will be worth the wait, once you see the quality that is being produced in your yard.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
When it comes to the bully game I look up to my partner Joel Escobedo, Mickey Neidlinger Edenfield (Mickey’s Bulldogs), and Lisa Jaycox (Edison Bulldogs). These three individuals don’t focus on enhancing their dogs pictures in order to sell their dogs. They take regular cell phone pictures and let their dogs quality speak for themselves.

Tell us about one of Delta Bulldogs main goals going into the year 2018.
One of my main goals for 2018 is to produce dogs that are the true definition of an English bulldog. Dogs that are short, compact, with a lot of wrinkles and no health issues (physically and genetically).

Describe how you would want things, in the bully breed Community, to be 10 years from now.
Ten years from now I want to see a bully community that helps one another. I want to be able to see breeders who have been in the bully game for a long time help those that are just starting out.

What separates Delta Bulldogs kennel from the competition?
Consistency is what separates us from the competition. We produce dogs of the same caliber of quality every single time. That is key to having a successful program.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I enjoy to playing soccer and riding bmx in my free time. I love being outdoors and staying active.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think Bully Girl Magazine is great. I like the fact that they don’t choose to interview only the well established kennels. This gives opportunity for those who aren’t established yet to get their name out there.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Do your research before getting into breeding. You must learn about the different bloodlines, colors, styles, and find out which one best suits you. This is the easier part. Once you have this figured out you have to do your research on how to breed. You can’t just throw two dogs together and pray for the best. Are you going with an AI or natural? What if your dogs won’t tie? What if you can’t find a vet willing to do an AI? Can you do it yourself? Is your vet willing to do progesterone testing? These are all questions you have to have answer prior to breeding.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
We think the most difficult thing for people to overcome is the judgement of others.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
People are not always going to agree with your style or vision of what the perfect dog is. However, you must stay focused and true to your dream. Others may not like it, but its yours and you must stand behind it. If you don’t believe in your dogs than no one will.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
Ed Shepherd, because he was able to create amazing bloodlines in both the American Bully and American Pitbull Terrier communities. He is a pioneer in both breeds, and his bloodline can be found in almost all pedigrees.

Tell us about one of South Florida Bully Department’s main goals going into the year 2018.
One of our main goals is to get in the show ring and show people what we have to offer.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see a more of community atmosphere, and not so much drama.

What separates South Florida Bully Department from the competition?
Our kennel is completely based around our family and our dogs are a huge part of it. Our children enjoy learning along with us. They get down and dirty, and love naming each puppy. All of our children have even assisted in the birth of puppies. It’s a family affair. They intend to carry on our dream.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
An exotic bully is a designer dog. It doesn’t fit any classification. It should be it’s own breed.

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
I’m for it. Everyone has their own style, and as long as the dogs are healthy, I say go for it.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We enjoy fishing, martial arts, and soccer.

Gripp Tyte Bullies: American Bully Breeder | Florida

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Jermaine Tucker. My kennel, Gripp Tyte Bullies, is located in Coral Springs, Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed the American Bully. I was inspired to get involved with this breed, due to a few dogs that stood out to me in 2008. You see, I consider myself an original dog man because I started breeding Pit bulls at the age of 13. So when I saw this breed, I fell in love with it. Immediately I had a vision of the dogs that I wanted to create. That’s when I decided to switch over from Pit bulls to the American Bully Breed.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I do not keep my bullies on a specific branded diet throughout the year. However, I do always give them high quality grain-free kibbles (dry food). I also switch it up or double up with BAM RAW DIET, and/or kibbles because I believe in giving them the best nutrition possible.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My favorite bloodline is the HAZE line.

Do you currently show any of your dogs?
Yes, I currently show my male Gripp Tyte’s Platinum Plus, and my female Gripp Tyte’s Fiona.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
The best advice that I would have for upcoming breeders is to breed with a vision and purpose, and not for the hype!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
I think the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome is when they breed their female dog, or pay money to breed their female dog, and she does not conceive.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
I think they can overcome this by having a large stock of female dogs that start their heat cycle at different times.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
In the bully game, I look up to Mr. Ed. Shepard and Jorge (The Bully Campline). I also salute Luis and Ivan, over there at Interstate Bullies. All of these men had a vision. They created a dog they liked, promoted them, and elevated the bully game to new levels. That’s my mission.

Tell us about one of Gripp Tyte Bullies main goals going into the year 2018.
One of my main goals going into 2018 is to champ out, or grand champ out 1 or 2 of the dogs that I produce.

Describe how you would want things in the bully community to be 10 years from now.
The bully community is in a pretty good place right now. In 10 years, I would want breeders to continue to elevate their knowledge on the bully breed. I would want to see the creation of beautiful and correct features in all aspects of the breed. This way we can continue putting great dogs in people’s homes, and keep the movement on a positive note.

What separates Gripp Tyte Bullies from the competition?
To tell the truth, I really don’t think the about competition because I breed for myself with my vision and my mission at hand. All-in-all, here at Gripp Tyte Bullies, we believe in quality, honor and respect.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
An Exotic Bully to me is just a look! See if you think about it, when you talk about an “exotic” car it’s a look. When you talk about an “exotic” woman it’s a look that she has. And so, in my own words, an Exotic Bully is simply just a look!

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
I love the exotic movement. However, I also feel that breeders should breed for the health benefits of the dogs too, not only for the “look”! Overall to me, it’s a beautiful movement!

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in.
I am involved with the American Bullies Against Bullying mentoring the youth program. I also have interests in youth football coaching.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love Bully Girl Magazine! It’s been one of my goals and visions to partake on a page. And look…now the blessings have come to pass and it’s such a pleasure.
