**It is with great, great sadness that we inform everyone that Tina passed away yesterday. She was attending the Italian Sieger and became unwell. She will leave a big hole in the lives of everyone she touched. She was truly a one of kind, special person and she will not be forgotten. She spent her last day, doing what she loved the most…being around her beloved German Shepherds. **
Iolanda Kennels is a specialist German Shepherd Kennel which took the name of the Owner Iolanda (Tina) Jermey.
Tina, who is originally from Italy has for over 40 years produced numerous show champions, CC, Res CC winners and multiple championship show winners, and still continues to do so.
Iolanda Kennels is renowned for the quality of their females, not only are they winners in their own right but they are also producing the highest quality puppies to Iolanda’s top class stud dogs.
In 2012 the wonderful champion Indo Vom Tamaraspitze was crowned the top winning male GSD by the UK kennel club, beating many high quality males throughout the UK.
And in May 2017, our female, Draga Von der Orangerie was awarded Best in Breed and Best in Show at Sheffield GSD . This was an outstanding achievement, as she was against the best male and female GSD’s in the country.
At the recent British Sieger show, our new addition Hettel di Casa Mary placed 2nd in Adult male (see below)
Most recently, two of our outstanding GSD’s – Top stud and show dog, Hettel di Casa Mary and our superb bitch Draga Von der Orangerie won Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show at GSD Club of Essex (See picture below)
Iolanda German Shepherds continue to do well for other kennels at open and championship shows, both here in the UK and overseas. Please see results on our show pages.
Besides Iolanda’s established winning and producing team, they also have exceptional youngsters which ensures a bright future for Iolanda Kennels, and the continuation of the kennel breed line.
It is quite common for Iolanda to keep youngsters to ‘grow out’ to assess temperaments and health, and these youngsters are then sold as adolescent dogs. Sometimes potential owners prefer the adolescent dog to a young puppy.
Iolanda puppies adapt extremely well to all environments, whether it be the show ring, working or homes. Please be assured that an Iolanda puppy will bring great joy to any family.
We regularly board dogs that we have sold, but boarding is also offered to non Iolanda dogs
If you are planning a visit, please call first – we maybe at a show!
