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.
