About us

The love of animals, especially dogs, has been there all my life. My first dog was a wirehaired Dachshund ARAM FALKAO, which I got in 1989 from my grandfather. A few years later, supported by my parents, I managed to buy a Czech Terrier bitch, ZAMBI Z NOVÉHO PARKU. It was her, thanks to whom I got into the world of terriers, dog shows and dog breeding. Since 1997 there is a lovely breed of Skye Terrier with us. The first and the unforgettable one was SILVERSKY BOHEMIAN ASTERIX. Some time later there were also other breeds along the way – American Cocker Spaniel, Newfoundland, Old English Sheepdog or Irish Terrier.

The FLANAGAN prefix was officially registered by the FCI in 1994 and we have bred several litters and very successful dogs under it. I still breed the Skye Terriers nowadays, but also the West Highland White Terriers with my wife Martina under her prefix SUNSHINE CELEBRATION. Our most important success includes many championships from not only European countries, international championships, several European and World Winner titles, including our bred dogs. You can meet dogs from both of our kennels around the whole Europe, but also in Asia, Australia and on the American continent.

Since 2001 I am also an international judge for the conformation. I have been on the club board of the Slovak club for Terriers and Foxterriers and I have organized Terrier club shows. I was a member of the organizing team of the European Dog Show 2003 and the World Dog Show 2009. You can often meet me at the shows also as the main ring speaker. I would especially point out the European Show 2003, the Doberman IDC World Show 2003, World Champion of Champions FCI VICTOR GRAND PRIX 2004 and the World Dog show 2009.

Currently I organize an international dog show Grand Prix Slovakia every year with my team, and since 2011 also a Derby Winner Show.
