We’ve Had An Overwhelming Success At The 2021
Pumi National aka Pumifest
that was held at the Bon-Clyde Center in Stanford, NC
September 29-October 30
Another dream has come through! Our young male, GCH CH Catskill Nyul Bela, from our breeding has won Best of Breed, Best Bred By and Best Owner Handled titles at the 2021 National Pumi Specialty!
Bela is two years old, and we’ve started showing him only this year. He has already earned his Grand Championship and won several Variety group and Owner Handled Group placements.
Our legendary GCHG CH Catskill Apacatancos Anka has also won Best Veteran and even “Select Bitch” placement.
Bela’s win is especially precious because this show had the highest entry in the breed’s US history.

We Are Excited two Announce The Arrival Of Two New Catskill Pumi Litters
Catskill Becsi Barsony X Catskill Iszkiri Ignac
Catskill Finnyas Fani X MayaLu’s Everett
June 15, 2021
I am so excited! just received the Breeder of Merit “SILVER” level recognition from the AKC!
For those of you who are not familiar with the Merit system, it takes a number of “Prefix” and “Suffix” titles to get this recognition. In other words, when dogs from breeders go to owners who have shown and trialed their dogs in various disciplines and achieve titles, it goes on the breeder’s records. In addition, AKC also requires the proof of health tests recommended by the parent Club of the breed.
Healthy pure bred dogs with good disposition, conformation that complies with the breed standard and the right amount of instinct are necessary for the preservation of a breed.

ANNUAL AKC ROYAL CANIN DOG SHOW IN ORLANDO FLORIDA,
After a long COVID-19 break, since the Westminster Kennel Club Show in February, we have stayed away from Dog Show events, both, conformation shows and sport trials . However, after weighing all the pros and cons we have decided to enter the Annual AKC Royal Canin National dog show in Orlando Florida in December of 2020, the consensus of two have concluded that we owe to lift the quality of the Pumi ring at the AKC National by entering our dogs.

Great Success at the Annual Royal Canin AKC National in Orlando, FL. Great Way to Finish an Extraordinary Year
It has been a sweet and memorable week for our Catskill Pumis at the AKC National in Florida. Our dogs finished in the ribbons each day in one of the biggest Pumi entries in recent memory.
Catskill Becsi Barsony has won two “Select” placements during the week and has topped her performance with a “Best of Opposite Sex” placement Sunday, at the Official AKC National Show. She has also finished her Bronze Grand Championship. Barsony has had an extraordinary year with several new herding, agility and lure coursing titles as well.
Catskill Csucsai Csinszka has earned “Select” placement at the Annual Herding Specialty Show of the Sunshine State Herding Association shown by Maria Arechaederra. Sunday she has earned “Award of Excellence” with Maggie Lundquist, at the AKC National, with one of the highest Pumi entries in the breed’s history.
This year, Orlando has been a bittersweet experience for Catskill Apacatancos Anka. With an unfortunate series of registration mistakes, Anka, has missed most of the Orlando shows, including the official National that she has won twice in previous years, (BOB). Luckily, her entry was valid for the prestigious Regional Pumi Specialty Show where she has won Best of Breed.
Seven months old Catskill Masni has joined the big girls to Florida. Her debut performance was outstanding at such a big show. Masni has also earned her first paycheck by winning her class in the puppy sweepstake.
On our way back home from Florida to upstate NY, we’ve been chased by a growing winter storm, however, we managed get home without any incident. Now we are taking a break until the rest of the year.
Watch for Westminster, we will be there in February, 2020. Happy Holidays everyone.

After close to twenty days on the road, we are back from Florida. Catskill Pumik have shown a strong performance in an ever increasing pool of diverse Pumik. Our dogs have placed every day and some of them have reached new important milestones, such as Catskill Battyogo Bikfic with owner handler Marika Foreman by completing Bikfic’s Bronze level Grand Championship with a “Select” placement. Catskill Anka has also earned her “Select ” placement, even though her pups only left us in October. Catskill Ficko has also delivered a steady performance and took another “Select” placement for Catskill during the week.
Then big bang has been delivered by Catskill Egri Estike, aka FRIDA with owner handler Maggie Lundquist by winning BOB AND Group 1 in the final of the NATIONAL OWNER HANDLED SERIES.

Catskill Pumik In the Spotlight At the Pumi National, “Pumifest 2018,” in Pennsylvania
For this year’s breed national, we have changed our objective and instead of conformation, we’ve decided focused on agility and herding . Our goal was to showcase the versatility of our dogs and remind Pumi aficionados that the Pumi is a herding breed with a great affinity to dog sports. “Pumifest 2018” was held in Pennsylvania this year and the event has appeared to be the best place to demonstrate the instinct, drive and high training level of our dogs.
Catskill Becsi Barsony and Kaffogo Agyag, have delivered outstanding and exciting performances in agility and herding. Barsony has Q’d four times and won four first places in Novice agility (JWW and Standard) Thursday. Sunday, she also finished her herding PT (Pre-trial) title in the morning and it qualified her to enter in “Started A – Sheep I” in the afternoon. She Qd and completed the trial with “Reserve High in Trial.” Agyag mastered both of his runs and earned “High in Trial” in the morning and in the afternoon too.
Thank you Super Catskill Pumik, you’ve shined again! We are so proud of you two!

Beware of Price Gouging…!
Important! Please do not support puppy millers by buying pups out of imported pregnant(!) bitches that have been purchased pregnant…(!) overseas and have been imported to the US simply for making money by selling the pups.
Oh… and you are a fool if you pay more than $2500 for a Pumi pup in 2018, unless your new Pumi comes with at least two cup holders…

We’ve had an exciting weekend at the “BIG E” (Eastern States Exposition Center), in West Springfield, MA. During the four-day show the Catskill Pumis have dropped a pin again on the AKC’s map. I am especially proud of Catskill Csucsai Csinszka who took two BOB and one day a Group 3(!) placement with her new accidental handler, Grame Burdone (he is a keeper now…)
Graeme and Csinszka clicked immediately and kept improving each day. They will show together again soon. Thank you Graeme for paying attention for all the details and leading Csinszka to her first Group placement in Variety (Group 3).
