ACD: Veni – Vidi – Vici by Andrea Dankova, Kennel “Cidabro”
The first ACDs were imported from Finland (Cattlefarm´s kennel) by Mr Petrus in 1997. The first ACD puppies were born in June 1998 as A-litter Bullit Star.

At the same time Bushranger´s Celtic Queen was imported from USA by Mrs Dankova (kennel Cidabro). A few months later I found a very promising young male in Windwarrior´s kennel in Finland.
At the first time it was rather difficult to introduce this fantastic breed to Czech people and find new ACD friends. There were born 4 litters in 2000 in our country. ACD became more popular, but not as much like f.ex. border collies. In my opinion this is much better for a breed. Some more dogs were imported from Finland, Belgium, Canada etc. In 2002 were already seven active kennels in Czech Republic. Till summer 2010 about 800 ACD were registrated in CZ ( some of them died and some of them were exported).
Int.Ch. Aboriginal Boy Cidabro won EW-2003 and BOB.
Aberdeen Red Camden
Aberdeen Red Camden Dog won EJW-2006 in Poznan.
Deen- World Dog Show 2009 in Bratislava was very successful
for Czech breeders too.
Cara Mia Kazari-Toyo Ken
WW-2010 won young bitch Cara Mia Kazari-Toyo Ken, bred and owned by Ms Dedicova. Photo: Cara, Veteran WW and BOB veteran became Int.Ch. Zeecidabro des Poenjaap.
Our ACD owners and breeders are regularly attending
ACD meetings and show in Germany. Int.Ch.
Cowcockycattle´s Moki and Int.Ch. Aboriginal Cinderella´s
Ranch won BOBs. Some more dogs won their class and CAC
titles over many Europeans dogs.
I am sure Czech ACDs have a very good reputation abroad.
It is a pity, that our breeders are not very interested in
health tests. We have a few kennels who test only their
stud dogs. I said it is a pity because our people really bred
high quality dogs.
