Akitas have been a part of Lori's family since1969. In fact, Lori’s mother played a role in getting the Akita was recognized by the AKC. When Tom and Lori were married they combined their passion for this breed and Dream Hi Akitas was born. Twenty-seven years later, they have established a successful and respected breeding program that has resulted in over 50 finished AKC Championships. Tom and Lori think that it is important to mentor and help people for the betterment of the breed. Throughout the years they have taken a lot of people under their wing and welcomed them into the breed.
Tom, Lori and their daughter Kristina believe that you can not have a sound dog without a sound mind. Dream Hi only breeds dogs with the best temperament that have successfully passed all their health testing. They are very proud of their dogs temperaments, which is something that their kennel is known for. Several of their dogs have achieved CGC titles, TT titles and obedience titles over the years.
Dream Hi is very proud of their success in the show ring. Their accomplishments include Best In Specialty wins with: Muffasa, Jack, Logan, Marco and Trace. Several of their dogs have produced enough champions to achieve a Register Of Merit; a title that that takes a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve.
A few year ago they purchases their first Brittany, Tucker. They are very encouraged with Tucker's success. Tucker and Krintina have won two AKC Best In Shows and over twenty Best in Specialty Shows. Tucker was ranked the #1 all systems in 2011 and is currently the #1 Brittany for 2012. Dream Hi looks forward to another exciting year to come with their dogs.
