Welcome to our family!
“Alofa” – Strong Sense of Love, Strong Affection, Intense Feeling of Attention and Care
Welcome to our site! We have a very special bond with our Dals as they have a very special bond with us. When looking for a kennel name, I wanted something that we stood for. Our Dals are part of our family living in our home and being part of our every day lives.
We (Shari and Ken Knoche) live in the Beautiful Panhandle of North Idaho. We have 16 acres where our horses and dogs have plenty of room to play.
We have owned Dalmatians since 1994. Our family has Dals in 4H, AKC Jr. Showmanship, Rally, Conformation, Obedience, Agility, FCat, Scentwork, Barn Hunt, Canine Good Citizenship, Trick dog and Canada Rally, Obedience and Conformation.
I have always wanted to prove Dalmatians are not just a pretty face. They are affectionate, loyal, goofy, full of personality, so very willing to please, confident and most of all family! We have worked very hard, sometimes entering several classes a day just to accomplish our goals. As long as they are wagging their tails and enjoying what they are doing we keep going strong.
Our Dal family and their accomplishments have grown over the past two years!! I couldn’t be more proud!!!
BeBe’s litter from August 2016 has amazed us all in how smart, willing and eager to please while competing they have been.
Our Dal family now consists of:
