Kris Kingsley

Kris’s most memorable success is Davidson (Ch Dainoak Veni Vidi Vici) winning his Championship title in December of 1999 – making him the last Great Dane Champion of last century, and from the first Harlequin litter she ever bred.

Other memorable moments

  • Zimbro (Int Ch Dainoak Diplomat) going Reserve World Champion in the early 90’s from Kris’s first ever litter
  • Zimbro (Int Ch Dainoak Diplomat) winning 3 Best In Shows at all breed International Championship shows
  • Domino (Dainoak Amor Vincit Omnia) gaining Reserve World Champion in 2002

How it started..

Kris has always loved dogs and Great Danes in particular since being a little girl. She bought her first Great Dane to show and hoped to breed from in 1987. Known as Altesam Rhythm N’ Blues, she was known as Trubble at home and Kris says, “She certainly lived up to it, fortunately I’ve never had another one as naughty since!”

The current kennel

The current kennel is eight Great Danes, ranging from ten years down to six months, and one Italian Spinone of just one year old.

Kris’s prefix ‘Dianoak’ is “From little acorns and all that.”

2008 Acheivements - a bulletin from Kris

Both Vinnie and Hagar have managed to get themselves invited to attend the South Western Great Dane Club - Top Twelve 'League finals' - as both are in the Top 12 Finalists (compiled independently from wins gained during the year from October 2007 to October 2008) - they have only been shown
since May as were too young before then.

Thor has also won Reserve Top Harlequin for the UK for the whole year.

“I have owned, bred and shown dogs for over 20 years, and with the colours of Danes I specialise in i.e. Blues, Blacks and Harlequins – the coat is the most obvious sign of good nutrition – as these colours look dreadful if the food doesn’t suit – and my dogs coats gleam! In addition, it is a difficult thing to rear a giant breed – they need to be grown correctly and slowly to build optimum bone density, and the CP 27 food is absolutely brilliant at bringing the growth on slowly and allowing them to have body whilst growing – certainly helps in the show ring.”

Max is so much better!

Hi Ceri

I contacted you about 3 weeks ago about our dog Max. I was feeding him on JWB but after his first No.2 of the day would carry on going about twenty times with what you thought may be either a food intolerance or infection in the gut (due to his strange sock eating habits!)

You recommended that after a few days rest on rice and fish we try the Heal and Resist herbs, which I have been using alongside your Champ! feed.

I am delighted to say, Max is so much better. Admittedly, we still have the odd hiccup but then if he comes across things when we are out walking they are eaten in a flash! I am really really pleased with the improvement he has made and it is so much easier to clean up after him!

I will definitely be recommending you to fellow dog owners.

Kind regards

Michelle (Smith)
