A BIT ABOUT US
We are Tamara and Jeff and our Borzoi have been a life long passion for us. We never had children, so I always say "Our kids have fur" whenever asked. Together my husband Jeff and I have created a wonderful life near Seattle Washington that revolves around our beautiful Borzoi, enjoying the nature around us, showing in AKC dog shows and breeding adorable puppies!
As long time Borzoi breeders, we are blessed to be able to share this elegant and unique breed with others and have been told by our many Borzoi puppy parents that we have enriched their lives. Sharing this wonderful breed has been an honor and the lifelong friendships a precious gift.
My husband Jeff is the dog whisperer here at Sedona Borzoi. His connection and devotion to our Borzoi kids is unparalleled. He is the backbone of Sedona Borzoi and our success is a result of his caring, hard work and love for the breed. A man of high integrity, fabulous sense of humor and gentle spirit deeply connected with the earth and all that live here. He is my rock and my partner in life. I am truly blessed.
Tamara is the visionary and planner at Sedona Borzoi. The one who can close her eyes and see the perfect Borzoi in her mind. She never stops dreaming, researching or planning for the next magical Borzoi breeding. She is highly competitive and has worked hard to build a strong breeding program with great success. She loves her Borzoi deeply with a bond so strong the loss of every Zoi child takes its toll.
Tamara is also very creative and opened the Borzoi Gift Shop and Art Deco Gifts where she puts her graphic design talent to work, creating wonderful gifts you will not find online anywhere else!
LIFE WITH BORZOI
Our Borzoi kids are our beloved companions first and foremost. For fun we show them in AKC dog shows. To date we have bred, co-bred and imported 34 Borzoi that have attained their AKC Championships and are proud of their many accomplishments. Jeff and I both show our own Borzoi, but it took me thirteen years to get Jeff in the dog show conformation ring. Once he took back to back majors at the prestigious Seattle Kennel Club show with our Borzoi boy Skyler to finish his AKC championship he was hooked!
We campaigned two of our Borzoi to top ranking in the United States solely owner handled all the way. In 2007, our Cooper was ranked the #1 Borzoi owner handled in the All Breed competition in the Nation, defeating top handlers on the west coast. His son Zasha accomplished the same handled by both Jeff and myself in 2016. We love showing our own Borzoi and the thrill of winning when we are in the ring with the them!
