  ASSOCIATE FEMALES

One Tosa kennel alone can not make the lasting impact that's needed to sustainably pursue improvement in a breed. 'Associate females' are Tosa girls that were born in our kennel, but live with their owners, with which we keep a close contact, and who help broaden our breeding programme, as a family or as a breeder. Thanks to this wonderful cooperation built on knowledge and trust, we are able to make great contributions to the breed for decades to come. Our gratitude for their collaboration is immeasurable.

Golden Oldies (retired)

Yes, we breed with our dogs, but first and foremost they are members of our family. That's why we are in no hurry to breed them young, and we won't breed them too often, or too old. Excellent females will produce a maximum of four litters (which is less than the Kennel Club allows), but retirement can be sooner and at a young age, if we consider it a better choice for the individual dog or for the breed as a whole to not breed with a dog (again/at all). Let's take Nelson, for example, who retired after just one litter. Both pregnancy and birth were so straining for her body, that we immediately decided that we would not put her through the ordeal again. We dearly love our dogs, and we don't want them to age faster because we happen to have a greater plan for the breed.

For the same reason - sheer love - we don't 'dispose' of them after breeding: They stay with us until their last day, and we shall move mountains to pamper and please the Kings and Queens at our home. We take pride in being their humble servants and hope to be for as long as possible. But if, despite that, we start to notice that one would thrive better at a home that offers more tranquility (or whatever it is that they need in this honorable stage of life) we might eventually have to consider matching a dog with a guest family to fully enjoy their retirement. Up until now, though, that has never been the case and we're as proud as we are happy that our 'golden oldies' are the true governors of our pack.
