We are a member of the DCNH e.V. (Deutscher Club für Nordische Hunde e.V.), which is a member of the Verband für Deutsches Hundewesen (VDH) and thus affiliated with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (F.C.I.).
Our kennel meets the strict criteria of the breeding regulations of the DCNH (Zuchtordnung) and the minimum requirements regulation (Mindestanforderungs-Ordnung (MAO)) and has been inspected and approved as of July 18th, 2020. By passing the kennel inspection and fulfilling all further requirements, our application for an F.C.I. protected kennel name has been signed off and made. Our kennel name is:
Minegami Sou 峰神荘 - "King of the Peak"
The two kanji characters are Mi-ne (the peak of a mountain, the pinnacle of something), and kami (read as gami in this case, which means god), although Kami does not necessarily denote a formal religious characteristic, it does have a rich mythological etymology. We believe the name Minegami accurately describes the nature and spirit of our dogs. .
