Makaita (English)

Kennel Makaita is located in Lillehammer, 2 hours north of Oslo, Norway.

QR are planning two litters in 2022. You will find more info about them here:

Wadiwa, Tariro and I live in a cozy house, with a large garden, close to beautiful Norwegian wild life and forrest areas near Lillehammer. Besides being a dedicated «dog-lady», I also teach merchant subjects/courses at the local vocabulary high school. Before I started teaching I worked as a hotel manager for approx 15 years.

The breeder, Anita Menkerud, compete in agility, obedience, rally obedience, ID-search, ring/Showing and blood tracking. I am an NKK-instructor and teach dog classes both at the local dog club, and in private. I teach obedience, rally obedience, ID- and blood tracking, dog strength-and body building.

I drive approx 40.000 km each year, which most of it is dog-related. I got my first RR in 2012.

I am also a member of the NRRK show-comittee, health-, breeding- and mental committee and election comittee. I am a former leader of the local working dog club, and the local border of the Norwegian kennel Club.
