Our Breeding Program:
The team behind Terra Incognita:
Sandra & Jaqueline
Our kennel is located in the southwest part of Missouri on a 53 acre
farm with about six ponds and lots of beautiful woods to wander
We have 5 acres fenced around the house with a doggie door that the
dogs can go in and out of. We also have about 6 acres fenced in 8 foot
chain link separated into 3 large runs which has its own pond and is
beautifully filled with trees. It attaches to a large out building with 10 x
10 indoor heated and cooled runs.
Our dogs are an active part of our daily life and all of the dogs have
access to the house unless we are gone at a show.
Beside the breeding dogs we also own several rescued dogs, horses,
cats, chicken and other critters.
Sandra lives in the US for half of the year, the rest she spents in
Europe showing dogs. Right now half of our dogs are with her in
Italy, the other half is here on the farm.
Sandra is showing and handling Lagotti (and other breeds)
professionally in Europe for over 20 years.
She is a dog groomer and trainer and owned her own business
for years before focusing on mainly showing dogs. She is the
one responsible for keeping our Lagotti looking like Lagotti...
Due to her reputation as a handler/breeder we were able to
aquire several very nice dogs to begin our breeding program
with. With those dogs we have been campaigning in multiple
countries almost every weekend for the last three years. We
have been very successful and enjoyed it very much.
Jaqueline has been heavily involved in dogs since she was a
child. She is an animal behaviorist, trainer, and worked as a
veterinarian technician for 10 years as a surgical technician.
Jaqueline is handling and training dogs since she was eight
years old and is breeding for over 15 years. She also is visiting
Europe for dog shows about three times a year on average for
the last 10 years.
A big passion of her is animal rescue and her greatest pride is
that she has rescued as many dogs as she has bred. Jacki is
actively involved with rescue and greatly driven to give back to
the animal community. She believes it is an ethical responsibility
for anyone who is reproducing dogs to do everything they can
to provide for needy animals.
On average we have five to ten animals available for adoption
here on the farm. Often they are sick, injured or behaviorally
challenged. It is a great blessing to be able to do this for animals
that need love, and our valueless by societies standards. All life
has value even if its only valuable to itself.
Jaqueline is very lucky to have a wonderful husband and two
great children who support and help her with all of her
