Imperial Kennels

State your kennel name, and where your kennel is located.

Hi my name is Alberto Alvarez, and my kennel, Imperial Kennels, is located in Hollywood ,Florida.

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

I breed pocket bully’s.  What inspired me, was their companionship, athleticism , and loyalty.

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

The diet my dogs stay on throughout the year, is kibble based food, called diamond extreme athlete.

What is your favorite bloodline?

My favorite bloodlines would have to be Iron Bear Buddha, Grey fox, Gottiline, and Razor’s edge because of their overall look and quality.

Do you currently show any of your dogs?

We currently do not show any of our dogs. We prefer to focus on breeding and producing high quality dogs.

What advice do you have for upcoming breeders?

My advice for upcoming breeders is to keep it clean, have patience and dedication, and never forget to set time aside to work with your dog.

What is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?

I would say the hardest thing not only in the bully world, but in all dog breeds, is losing a loyal companion after years of having him or her around.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?

I would say trying to remember all the good times and the memories that will last a lifetime.

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

I have a lot of respect for breeders out there, but I can’t really say I look up to many of them, because i’ve been around longer than most. I’ve been doing this for the past 30 years, so I try to set my own goals.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moment in 2015.

My most memorable moment of 2015 would have to be one afternoon when I was at the park, and a family with a disabled child came up to the dogs, and you could almost instantly see the way the dogs brighten her day, and filled her heart with happiness.

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

10 years from now I would love to see more families coming around. Also I would like to see all the states and countries that have banned these dogs, to lift the bans, and allow people to have these dogs. They are truly an amazing breed.

What separates your kennel from the competition?

What separates me from most kennels, is the temperament, and quality that my dogs possess.

What motto do you live by?

The motto I live by is be humble, be faithful, and be honest.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?

I am very pleased with this magazine, and I’m happy to see how far they’ve come.  I appreciate all the things they do for this great breed, and I can’t thank them enough for this great opportunity.

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!

Steel City Kennels 412 – Pennsylvania

Steel City Kennels 412

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Dandrae Pinner, owner of Steel City Kennels 412. Our kennel is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
As of right now, we currently only breed American Bullies. We breed XL, Pocket, and Standard. What inspired me to get involved with the breed is I really have always been a dog lover. I grew up with them in my household throughout my childhood. Over the last 4.5 years I really started focusing on specific breeds, as I started to understand more about the pedigree and more about the American Bullies in general. Other kennels such as Zulluo Kennels, and Gullyside Kennels have always been helpful over the years and pushed me to show what I had in my yard. They taught me how to make due with what I had.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I feed all of my dogs raw and dry food, such as Merrick Raw Infused or Victor. I try to always feed them something high in protein and fat, to keep good weight and muscle on them.

What is your favorite bloodline?
I like Gottiline the most, but they are all pretty much my favorite.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I don’t currently show any dogs at the moment. However, in the future, I definitely plan to.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
All I can say is breed what you think is best, as far as your vision goes, not what you think everyone else is going for. Also, promote your dogs, and don’t be scared of what other kennels or people will say about your productions.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The negativity. Not everyone is going to appreciate what you do. Sometimes more exposure causes a lot more hate, which you’re going to have a lot of. You just have to be able to overcome and keep pushing.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Just tune them out, and focus on what is best for your kennel and dog family. As long as they’re talking, that just more exposure. Just don’t let it bring you down.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
People and kennels that I look up to in the bully game are Zulluo Kennels and Gully due to the way they present themselves. They always push what they love, and they go hard with promoting and other stuff. I respect their drive.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would just like to see more people coming together, as far as the bully movement goes.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
We just do us at the end of the day. We really don’t focus on other competition. We are more about trying to make our kennel better as a whole, and take the next best step for us to improve overall.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I really just work. If I’m not working, I’m spending time with my dog family – playing, exercising, and training them.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think the idea of Bully Girl Magazine is great. Bully Girl is showing and doing things that other mags are not doing, and allowing people to get their vision out there, which is awesome and highly appreciated. Also, before I go, thank you for acknowledging us and taking time out to ask us a few questions. God Bless. It was a pleasure.
