We have had an interesting personal experience with Polish Tatra Mountain Sheepdogs.
Although the dogs are a very rare breed, we have developed a friendship with the Matwijewicz family of Poland, who own Tatras. In October, 2009, their dog, Kama, won the Intermediate Class at the World Dog Show in Bratislava, Slovakia, and received a gold medal. This provided a great foundation for Buschwinkel Kennels (Hodowla Buschwinkel).
In September, 2010, we visited our Polish friends and we were introduced to Kama. She quickly included us in her herd. In spite of the fact that Tatra dogs are large, strong, and protective, she is very loyal and loving to those that she regards as her friends. We believe that this is a result of the excellent training that Beata has provided for Kama.
