Heads Akitas und Schibas

Welcome to our world of dogs

"Lord of Odate's inheritance" well-known with the shortcut LofOi, that's us, Kerstin & Roland Bergmann. Always been with dogs before, we are dedicated with enthusiasm for the American Akitas since 1997.
Our kennel name is under international FCI protection since 2000, we are members of the Akita Club e.V. in Germany since 2001 and members of the Shiba Club Germany e.V. since 2019 too.

Our dog world - briefly explained - we LofOi's see us ourselves first of all as show kennel. So LoOi's are to seen at many dog shows in Germany and abroad since the official recognition of the American Akitas by the FCI in the year 2000. Our breeding arose almost inevitably to get Akitas for the shows which really correspond to the ideals of their own. On the other hand, the first litter was only in 2004 and although the possibilitys would be much greater due the number of dogs and especially the time which we can spend our dogs, Roland left his career in 2004 and is always there for them and Kerstin works at the homeoffice since 2017, only two litters or less falling down per annum up to today. So you should readdy for waiting time if you wish to get a puppy of us. But because we only place matings which produce suitable puppies for our purposes, should be worth this waiting period for you too. All together, dog shows, breeding, the work of and the supply of the many dogs, many too because the old ones stay with us until they die, all the many little things around, it's not a profession for us, not either just hobby which one you touch or leave, depending on the mood you're in, it's our whole living content or with other words, our dog world.

2000 LofOi's supplied the first German Federal Winner and the first American Akita which won a placement in a FCI group competition and 2001 the first American Akita Champion VDH. Since then won or placed up their Akitas on international terrain countless times as Best of Breed and again and again in the Best in Show and Group contest of the main rings, won repeatedly Federal Winner, German Winner, Europe Winner and World Winner title or their Vice title. So far their Akitas won a total of 105 Champion title. 86 of these Champions titles were awarded to their self bred Akitas.

For years we've been watching the Shibas on the shows. It was actually planned for retirement age. But allready 2017 we met a long wish with our first Shiba and we've got a little pack now. Since 2018 with Shibas on shows also, the first of them is owner of three titles too.

We wish you lots of fun while surfing on our homepage and refer to our Facebook side also. There is to see really any amount of our dogs, photos and videos, fun pictures and of course photos of our puppies.
