State your name, and where your kennel is located.

My name is Wasey Lamar, and I am the founder and operator of CrazyNative Kennels, out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

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

At CNK we breed pocket and standard style American Bullies.  We raise our dogs to have family oriented temperaments, and to be physically functional.  I grew up with traditional American Pitbull Terriers and I saw that American Bullies where on the rise about 10 years ago. Mugelston blood is what first caught my eye, which I know initially was about massive blue dogs. As I began to do more research, I heard about Remy Martin and his story. Remy was definitely an amazing dog in all aspects, but it was the story of the bloodline, and what he was producing that inspired me to get involved in this breed, and to try and create my own ideal style.

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

I have kept my dogs on a routine diet of Sport Mix for a few years, but have recently switched brands to Victor’s.  I am also planning to start a raw diet regimen, in addition to the dry food.

Do you have any upcoming breedings that you would like our readers to know about?

I have a few breedings in the works right now that I’m really excited about.  But one in particular is SOB’s Skeptic X CrazyNative’s Pandy, which gave me some amazing pups! I may not always have a litter on the ground or a breeding happening, but that is only because I try to be really selective and plan a litter that I know will be a great production.

What is your favorite bloodline?

As stated before Remyline bloodline is what got me hooked and will always be my favorite. My foundation stud, Ch.Stache the Cash, is a Remy grandson/Headquarters son.  Most of my yard is based off of him because he carries every trait in a bully I could ask for, with the exception of his height.  That is the reason I started looking to some other bloodlines to see what I could add to achieve the height I was wanting, but also keep all the attributes of Cash and a Remyline dog.

Do you currently show, any of your bullies?

It’s been a few months since I’ve taken my dogs to a show and put them in the ring.  I’ve been focused on a few particular breedings, training some new productions, throwing some shows, and spreading the word about RKC.  I’m planning on getting back into the ring soon. Although it’s been awhile since I have been in the ring, the first couple of years were dedicated to champing out three dogs. My next focus will be to champ and grand champ my 3rd generation productions.

What advice do you have for any upcoming Bully Breeders?

My advice for new comers is to develop thick skin, and be able to decipher between someone who is genuine and someone that is just trying to get your money.  There are a lot of great people out there that are really in it for the love of the breed and want to see it succeed and improve.  Then there are the ones that are just in it for the money and attention.  Some will hate if you do good, hate if you make a mistake, and sometimes hate even if you do nothing at all.  Be in this for the right reasons, surround yourself with the right people, and never hesitate to ask for opinions and help.

You recently co-hosted the The Missing Piece – Bullies for Autism, RKC Show in Wichita Falls, Texas. Tell our readers what that experience was like for you, and what they can look forward in the future.

The Legacy and I just co-hosted the first RKC show to hit Texas and it was great to see all the people that came out!  Hosting a show and attending a show are definitely two different experiences.  When you are there to show your dogs you mainly have to just set up your booth and make sure your dogs are all good and ready to get in the ring.   Hosting the show is a lot more complex.  You have to get the venue, trophies, organize registration, take booth orders, make sure you have enough help and basically make sure everyone and everything is where they are supposed to be and doing what they are supposed to be doing.

We really enjoy having shows and are looking forward to bringing many more RKC shows to the central states.  We want to make sure and bring the family fun atmosphere to our shows because that is really what it is all about.

What is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome, and how can they overcome this thing?

When you get started in bullies you can definitely face some obstacles.  It can be deciding which bloodlines are right for you, having the knowledge and funds you need to successfully care for your dogs, or simply being able to get your kennel name out there and get yourself and your dogs recognized.

The best way to overcome these obstacles is to make a plan for your program.  Figure out what you are wanting to produce and decide what it’s going to take to make that happen.  Spend your money right, produce good clean dogs, believe in what you are doing, stand by your word, and do good business.

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

When I was first starting out in the Bully World there were a couple of people that I really could count on to help me out when I needed advice, or someone to point me in the right direction. One of those people was Will Deroisa of DFB Kennels.  Fabian Chichester is another person that I look up to, because he is one who has solid morals, good ethics and obviously does things the right way.  He has stuck to what he believes in for his program, and I plan to do the same.

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

In the next 10 years, I would love to see more education on Bullies, and for breeders to strive for more functional, clean, correct, and healthy dogs.  I would like to see the American Bully back on the right track.

What separates your kennel from the competition?

I think my kennel is different from others in the fact that I have tried to use different bloodlines than most kennels in my area.  I also represent my Native American heritage in all of my kennel promotion, because I am very proud of both. If you already know me then you know the name “CrazyNative” fits me and my kennel.  Another thing that I want to stand out is that I am a genuine person, and it is my main goal to better the breed.

What motto do you live by?

I live by the motto “Everything happens for a Reason”.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?

I appreciate Bully Girl Magazine for giving me the opportunity to talk a little about my program, RKC, and what I would like to see in the future for the bully world. It’s because of the media and magazines like Bully Girl, that we are changing the stigma about Bullies and continuing to educate people on what our dogs are all about.  So thank you Bully Girl Magazine, and continue doing what you do best.

Elite Bully Kennels: American Bully Breeder | Florida

Published

By

Elite Bully Kennels

Who is Elite Bully Kennels?

Tell our readers a little bit about yourself.
My name is Tim Levi, and this is my beautiful wife Fonda Levi. We represent Elite Bully Kennels. You can find us in New Port Richey Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We specialize in pocket and standard American Bullies. Like many others we started out with American Pit Bull Terriers. However, once we were introduced to the American Bully by a good friend of ours, we immediately fell in love. We were inspired by their overall appearance, temperament, and loyalty. We knew right away that this was the breed for us.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
We currently have all of our adult dogs on a high quality, grain free kibble with a 30/20 protein to fat ratio. We also include daily vitamins and rotate between coconut oil and wild alaskan salmon oil throughout the year for their skin and coats. All of our pups are given Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Formula three times daily. We leave the rest to genetics.

What is your favorite bloodline?
There are so many bloodlines that bring good qualities to the table. We are currently working towards our own vision. Our vision is to have a clean, functional bully. This bully would have a lot of muscle mass, big bone, large head and a short compact frame. Without going over the edge, of course. So be sure to be on the lookout for the new Elite Line coming soon.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
Yes we do. Our stud El Chapo, who is off of Grand Champion RedRum, took 1st & 2nd place BBCR ribbons home this year. We are looking forward to introducing him and a couple of our productions to the ABKC in 2018.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
This isn’t a get rich quick type of business. You have to be willing to invest time, effort, and money into your program if you want to be successful.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Individuals and animal rights groups that try to bring negativity about the breed, due to their own ignorance.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
We believe that education is the key to the acceptance of the breed, and responsible breeders. Negative perceptions can be overcome by being the voice for the breed. We try to do exactly what you guys do at Bully Girl magazine. That is to offer educational and informational outlets through websites, magazines and social media. We want to showcase both the breed and responsible breeders in a positive light.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
There are quite a few people that we respect in the bully game. We appreciate the way that they have conducted business, and how they represent the bully community. We have met a lot of friends along the way, and we are looking forward to meeting many more.

Tell us about one of Elite Bully Kennels most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
Our most memorable moment of 2017 would have to include our road trip to Georgia. We competed in a BBCR show and took home 1st and 2nd place ribbons.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
As cliche as it might sound, we would really like to see the bully community come together as a whole. Everyone needs to focus less on the money, greed, and envy. What really matters is breeding quality dogs, that are going to bring happiness to other families for many years to come.

What separates Elite Bully Kennels from the competition?
At Elite Bully Kennels we pride ourselves on professionalism and legitimacy. We are licenced and regulated by the state of Florida. We strive to treat all of our customers with the respect, courtesy, and professionalism. They deserve it when making such a significant investment into their lifestyle.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We are very much into physical fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. We are also very family oriented, and we love doing family activities. My wife is very much involved with our children’s schools. She is the school treasurer and she is on the board of the PTO.

What motto do you live by?
Raise Your Standards!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
We think you guys are awesome! You are great advocates for the breed. We enjoy your magazine, and are big fans of your Bully Gear at BGM Warehouse. On behalf of everyone at Elite Bully Kennels, we would like to thank you very much for this opportunity!

The Bully Kingdom: American Bully Breeder | Texas

The Bully Kingdom

Who is The Bully Kingdom?

The Bully KingdomState your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Jacobi Guyton, of The Bully Kingdom. You can find us in Dallas, Texas.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed the American Bull. I saw this beautiful breed back in the 90’s, primarly in magazines at car shows on the west coast. I always wanted one but didn’t know the name of them. Back then I was into Pit Bulls, doing dumb shit, until I couldn’t afford to be in the game any more.

Push my life 20 years forward. Everywhere  I went, I started seeing these dogs again which made me wanted to get back in the game. I always told myself, if I ever got back involved, it would all be for the greater good of the breed! I started researching these American Bullies, and learned about all the good and bad things with this breed. On instagram I ran into a breeder name Spencer from Power Circle Bullies. I noticed he had a breeding going on and I had to jump on it! We linked up and The Bully Kingdom was formed! I said “I will only breed the best. Also I will do my best to put quality bullies in lovable family homes!”

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I started with that raw diet everyone was talking about. After speaking with a few people that I trust, I just put my dogs on Eukanuba and it has been doing very well for my dogs! I now give Raw for snacks.

What is your favorite bloodline?
Daxline is my favorite blood line.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
No, not at this time due to my kids staying very busy, but that is something I want to do in the future though.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Do your research. Get involved for the love of the breed. Everything else will follow. Breed what you like and create the best Bully that is functional and active, with a great temperament!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Greed and Patience! You can’t just buy a dog and become a millionaire. It takes time and money to build a successful dog kennel. Don’t get caught up in the money so much that you stop creating quality dogs! Your clients want the best dog buying experience ever, and it’s your job to create that!

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
By loving the breed more!

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I have to say, I really like how Vincent over at D1 Kennels runs their business. No disrespect to anyone else. I think there are a lot of legit kennels out there.

Tell us about one of The Bully Kingdom’s most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
My most memorable moment was having my first litter this year. Cassius Clay x Queen B! This litter produced some great looking dogs, with badass personalities!

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see more cohesiveness in the bully community. We all love our dogs, and think our dogs are the best, but that shouldn’t get in the way of being good people. I would also like to see better productions. Take pride in your breedings and breed away from deformities, murmurs, and things that put a negative light on breed.

What separates The Bully Kingdom from the competition?
We aren’t trying to keep up with everyone. We are in our own kingdom and doing very good business! The Bully Kingdom will never be a puppy mill. Again, this is what we do because we love the breed!

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I have an independent record label called Global Power Music Group (@globalpowermusicgroup on instagram). We are doing some great things over there! Check us out!

What motto do you live by?
Grind Smart, not Hard!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
We feel you all do an impeccable job with keeping great awareness about the breed. It’s always good to run into people that share the same passion. Bully Girl is always looking to shed positive light on the American Bully breed. They are linking the community together. Also, they have a dope ass clothing line as well! When looking at your magazine it is easy to see why you all are the #1 Bully Magazine out there. Thank you for your time and this opportunity!

By

Hammerhead Bullies

Who is Hammerhead Bullies?

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Orlando Ortiz, of Hammerhead Bullies. You can find me in San Antonio, Texas.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
At Hammerhead Bullies, we breed American Bullies. We are about to start breeding French Bulldogs. Since I was a kid growing up, we always had American Pit Bull terriers. This made me develop a passion for this at a very young age, which was a big inspiration for me.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I try to feed my dogs a high protein, high fat diet all year long. I also add some raw feed and extra supplements during the winter months.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My favorite bloodline is the Razors Edge bloodline. In my opinion some of the best show dogs have originated from this bloodline. They just don’t get much recognition nowadays.

Hammerhead BulliesDo you currently show, any of your dogs?
No. I currently don’t show any of my dogs. Just some fun shows here and there, to let people know what Hammerhead Bullies have to offer.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Be careful out there… Haha!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
The most difficult thing to overcome is other breeders bashing the next man. You can lose your vision worrying about others opinions.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
By breeding for themselves first, and what they want to see running around their yard. Imagine a yard full of bulls you visualized. That’s the most satisfying feeling ever.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I look up to everybody who supported us along the way. We appreciate our customers who drove and flew miles just to come and buy dogs. Some even came just to check out the yard. Also, everyone who kept It 100 throughout the years.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
July 4th weekend at the Bully Beach Expo. I had the chance to meet Ed Shepherd. That man had some jokes.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see more unity, and less hate. Plain and simple.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
First of all we’re humble, haha. No, but our dogs have been line bred enough to stand out. They carry those exaggerated traits on a bully compact frame. Also, advertising is key.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I have no other hobbies at the moment.

What motto do you live by?
Well connected, Well respected!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think y’all are doing a good job with y’alls movement. Keep it up!
