Puppies – Mentoring – Visitors by Appointment
At del Mare Spinone, we strive to produce healthy, sound Spinone Italiano for Show, Field, Performance and Companionship.
In Italian, del Mare means "of the sea." We chose this name for our small home based kennel to reflect our love of where we live, and have lived. Del Mare was started in Juneau, Alaska, where our family lived for over 25 years. I originally discovered the Spinone Italiano around 1997, when I read an article in a magazine about the breed and became interested. After two years of research Breezy (Ch. Brezza di Ghaicciaio da Grazia UCD, RN) joined our family. She introduced me to the world of dog sports - initially obedience, then conformation, hunt training, and therapy work. When Stella (Am Can Ch. Stella Marina da Grazia JH) joined our family in 2004, I continued to expand my interests even more.
del Mare Spinone has been breeding the Italian Spinone since 2008.
