History of
Crest Kennels
                Crest Kennels was created in 1983.
           At that time I showed and bred only Akita's,
                      my first love of dog breeds.

 This was my first Akita
        from the legendary O'BJ's kennel.
       She was a daughter to
        the one and only "Widow-Maker".


      My son Max, my pride and joy, was born in 1997.
         At that time I cut back in breeding and showing
                    and dedicated my time to Max.

In 2007 my next beautiful boy, Larz, was born.
                                                Larz is the total package of the Akita breed
                                                 both in looks and temperament.

              Larz and I did many shows together and achieved several titles.

In 2005 my first Labrador Retriever come into my life,
my beautiful Sammi.
Once I had a Labrador I fell in love with the
happy-go-lucky nature of this breed.

       I no longer have Akita's.

My silly, loving Lab's fill my days now.
Along with my 2 cats Teddy and Simon.

     My handsome, extremely smart Max is all grown-up
                  and makes me proud everyday...
