ADVICE FROM VERONICA

VERONICA MALKOVA

Born and raised in Canada with family roots in the Czech Republic, Veronica is a professional trainer who also owns a boarding service. Her resume includes a plethora of show and sport titles, and she trains service, therapy and protection dogs both privately and for various organizations. She also travels to police and military units across Canada and the USA for training sessions.

 

WHO IS YOUR MENTOR?

I have two: Ivan and Natalia Balabanov, as well as Greg and Theresa Chan. Both couples are an absolute driving force for their respective breeds – I'd say Ivan and Natalia are the top Belgian Malinois Breeders in the world, while Greg and Theresa can say the same for Doberman breeders in North America.

The values they have, the respect they have for people, friends, and family are unparalleled. To keep it short and sweet, they truly are phenomenal people.

 

ONE DOG YOU'LL NEVER FORGET?

I'm not sure if I could pin point one, but if I really had to I think it'd be Liška, my Belgian Malinois.

She's the dog who truly opened doors for me. She's my heart dog. I've gone through breakups with her, relocating homes with her, I've put some of my first titles in certain sports on her, and she has proven to me day after day that anything is possible with dogs. She is my demo dog, she has flown all over North America with me. This dog is just incredible. I don't want to think of the day I'll have to say goodbye.

 

IF YOU COULD BE ANY BREED, WHICH WOULD IT BE (BESIDES THE ONE YOU CURRENTLY OWN)?

A well-bred, waterfowl fetchin' Labrador. Gun dogs have the life, in my opinion.

 

FUNNIEST DOG STORY?

To my dogs, they probably think my whole life is a joke, ha!

 

WHAT'S YOUR HISTORY WITH DOGS?

I have had a variety of breeds in my life, making special note of my very first dog ever who was a Bull Terrier. I then went on to get a Yorkshire Terrier... I set out to almost prove to people that small dogs don't have to have a bad rap, and that Yorkshire Terrier went on to have a variety of Obedience and Trick titles. The best dang small dog there ever was! I also had two Dobermans who did show and sport work. Currently, I have two Belgian Malinois who do show and sport work.

 

ONE THING PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I competed in a national level hunter circuit (horseback riding).

 

WHERE DOES YOUR PASSION FOR DOGS ORIGINATE?

Definitely my great grandfather. Although I don't recall many memories with him he was the one who ran our family farm back home in Czech Republic. I truly believe (as would anyone in my family) that my love for animals came from him. His love for animals, his love for hunting, his love for all things outdoors... it's all from him.

 

LONGEST ROAD TRIP TAKEN WITH YOUR DOG?

Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) to St. Pete Beach, FL (USA). I did it in about 24 hours.

It’s like an insurance plan….

This is by far the best kennel made. I use mine daily and they take lots of abuse. They never even seem to wear at all. Hose them off with soap and water and they look brand new. I encourage all of my puppy buyers to get them as well. It’s like an insurance plan for your best friend!

Wow, Just Wow

Wow, this kennel is the Yeti of dog kennels! everything about this kennel is first rate. Yes, there are cheaper, but none can compare to a Gunner kennel.

Amazing travel kennel

This thing is built like a tank. I have no doubt this will protect our little guy if we are ever involved in an accident. We recently completed an 800 mile road trip with him in the crate. It was well worth the money. This was the first time he was calm in the car and not whining. He slept easily during the drive. We felt calm know he was secure and comfortable. Cannot recommend this crate enough!!

Unlike any other crate I have seen

I purchased two Gunner kennels, a medium and a small, for my pups. Immediately, you understand this is a different level of product compared to what you’ve used before. The construction is fantastic and legitimately heavy duty. I feel so much better knowing I’ve done everything I can to keep my dogs safe in case of a worst case scenario.

Best purchase for my best friends

I’ve been buying cheap kennels for the four years I’ve owned my dogs, none of them seemed to hold up. I’ve wanted a Gunner for a year now, and the more I read stories of how they have saved dogs lives, it made me think of how losing my best friends would damn near **** me. So I made the purchase and will never look back. It is one solid kennel and I will not let the kennel hold me back from traveling farther to hunt anymore. It’s well worth the investment. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for, and this will not let anyone down.
