Why "Domaine d'Haïsha" ?

Haïsha, in memory of Haïsha de Castelmare, little Tricolour American Cocker born in 1983.

Unfortunately, she didn't live long.  We were used to let the dogs in the garden when we were doing some shopping and, one day, we came back and found her, lying besides a tree, she seemed asleep.  She was dead. She was autopsied by the vet, and he saw her liver was bursted.  Probably after a kick given by one of our neighbours, who used a part of our garden as a kitchen garden.  To go there, he had to cross our garden, and he didn't like the dogs very much.  Of course, he never told us he was responsible of Haïsha's dead.  Haïsha was 5 months old.

The kennel name "du Domaine d'Haïsha" was created in 1984.  Thus in 2004, the kennel celebrated his 20th birthday.

Our family

Our children, Carol, Nicolas and Gaëlle, were raised in the doggy world since their tender age.


We never forced them to continue in that way, but Carol became all breeds groomer, Nicolas was handler for many years, and Gaëlle loves the dogs ...

Our first dog

Her name was "Laïka" and she was out of a "cross-breed" (poodle, maltese, ...).  She came with us everywhere, on holidays, ...  She lived until the age of 14.
