- papillons from Russia -
Since childhood, I dreamed of my own kennel, where I could implement ideas, see in practice how the laws of genetics work, create my own breeding line and of course get my own “perfect dog”! At that time, I had a collie and of course all plans were connected only with this breed, but life has made its own adjustments…
After graduating from the Moscow Agricultural Academy with a degree in General Zoo engineering, fate, absolutely by chance, brought me together with our first Papillon Fil (FILIPP ZHOLI DE KLER), from which our fascinating life began with these insanely positive little dogs with a royal posture. Fil also gave the name to our kennel - DARFIL.
The world of the dogs gave us many new acquaintances and wonderful people all over the planet! The opportunity to communicate with the owners of famous kennels around the world is an invaluable help and support of experienced mentors. We have become regulars at major international exhibitions, and even if not always with successful results, we had the opportunity to see the best dogs live and to communicate with their owners and breeders.
Thanks to that we managed to get our first dogs in well-known kennels in Sweden, for what I am incredibly grateful to their breeders, who have always been honest with me and continue to communicate over the years.
All our dogs take part in exhibitions, you can see them live and meet them at most major exhibitions in Russia and abroad. We are attentive to the health of our dogs, they are all tested for genetic breed diseases, and also have patella tests, undergo regular eye and heart examinations.
We are not chasing the number of puppies and litters, so we don't have more than one or two litters per year. Puppies grow up with us in the same room and communicate with people during the entire time they are in our house.
We are always glad to communicate with old friends and, of course, meet new ones!
We continue to learn and learn something new, are open to criticism and advice!
