Auroral Kennel

How we started:

Having grown up with Poodles, a Springer Spaniel and a Newfoundland,
Jon got his first Borzoi in 1986 and soon after Jennifer became an integral part of Auroral.

Together, Jon & Jenni have produced multiple Best in Show, Multiple Best in Specialty,
and Multiple Group Winning, Multiple Top Ten Borzoi.


Personal & Borzoi Accomplishments:

In 2016, Auroralís Anson, retired the Bred By Exhibitor Rogborei Challenge Trophy
(3rd time, with Auroralís Artemus & Auroralís Ajax), with the Borzoi Club of Ontario.
At the same show, also in 2016, Auroralís Arabella retired
the Stepplands Bred By Exhibitor Challenge Trophy (3rd time, with
Auroralís Topaz & Auroralís Andromeda, with the Borzoi Club of Ontario.
We have been awarded the Hall of Fame "Breeder", and "Service" awards
from the Midwest Borzoi Club (MBC).

In 2007, Jon was nominated by "Dogs in Review" magazine,
as one of the 5 Top Owner Handlers in the U.S.

In 2009, BIS MBISS Am. Can. Ch. Auroralís Across Time Sirius ďAceĒ retired
the Dr. Charles Conally Memorial Challenge Trophy.
Jon & Jenni have re-donated the trophy to the Midwest Borzoi Club,
and remains the Dr. Charles Conally Memorial Challenge Trophy.

In 2004, BISS Am. Can. Ch. Auroralís Avalanche retired the Insight Bred-By Exhibitor Trophy,

Jenni served MBC as Vice President for 16 years, and also Chaired a variety of
other Committees, including Specialty Show Chairman for many consecutive years.


Jon's AKC Approved & Permit Breeds for Judging:

Jon is approved to judge all Hound breeds, Papillons & Junior Showmanship.

In addition to judging specialties across the country, Jon has also judged
the Borzoi Club of America and the Otterhound Club of America Nationals.

  As members of MBC, and the Borzoi Club of America (BCOA), we abide by
their code of ethics in trying to produce a limited number of Borzoi that
exhibit the Auroral type, with emphasis on both sound movement and temperament.
We are also members of the Michigan Hound Association.
Both Jon & Jenni are approved Breed Mentors for BCOA.

We hope you enjoy a look at our present dogs,
and our cherished past friends.
