My name is Marte, 30 years old and I am the proud owner of kennel Acnologia. We run a small breeding of Chinese Crested Dog. Our location is in the middle of Norway, Trondheim.
The kennel consists of me and my husband, our daughter and our dogs. The first time I saw a Chinese Crested was in 2009, the same year as I got my first powderpuff - after that it was no turning back!
Our kennelname was approved in 2015 and our first litter arrived summer 2021. We don't have litters often, only when we believe in the combination and want to keep something from the litter ourselves. First and foremost are our dogs beloved pets and family members. We strive to breed quality and healthy dogs, instead of quantity! Health on our dogs and litters can be found on the dogs or the litters site.
Another passion is other dogsports and training my dogs! I want to show others that small (hairless) dogs can also do a lot of things, and my dogs love the variety of things we do. The dogsports we train now are agility, rally obidience and we go to dogshows.
I want to thank the people who made this possible;
Helen and Johnny at Kennel Little Jade, you're always a great support and gave us the best start of our breeding programme I could ever dream off!
Also all other friends and family who believes in me, supports me and breeders who trusts us with their studs and dogs; Thank you everyone!
THE KENNEL NAME
Our kennel name - ACNOLOGIA is inspired by my favorite childhood series, Fairy Tail.
A japanese anime series. Acnologia is the Black Dragon or the Dragon King.
Borrowed from wikipedia about "Aconologia":
"Acno" is a Greek word used to reference aging. The word "Logia" is a Greek word from New Testament scholarship that translates roughly as "sayings, utterances, oracles". The name could thus be translated as "Ender of Eras".

OUR FIRST LITTER
Our first litter arrived in summer 2021 - A little bunch of 4 beautiful puppies! Our "Royal musicians"-litter, based on honorary nicknames for well known artists.
3 boys and 1 girl. We decided to keep the girl(Onyxia) and part-ownership one of the hairless boys (Billy).
What a journey they've had!
Onyxia showed early on that she is a little firecracker, she won Best of Group on her first puppyshow only 4 months old! She also won her first rallyO title RLI only 15 months old! And the journey will continue with more RallyO and agility!
Onyxia and Billy switched from time to time winning over each other on the puppyshows.
Billy also won his first title only 12months old, he became Norwegian Junior Winner 2022 and won his last CAC, only missing the crowning one at 2 years of age!
What a great start and the journey will be continued ...
