Welcome to Kenai's page at

Lena (Kennel Hazinas) about Kenai:

"I have had the pleasure of fetching Kenai many times at his home and driven off to various dog shows in Denmark- and once in Sweden. Many times I also have had one more dog with me in the car, and Kenai is always very friendly towards his travel mates. His owners confirm that he plays well with other dogs he meets on his way, and he has no male aggression. It is such a pleasure to travel with him and he is so easy to handle at dog shows as he really wants to work and keeps excellent contact. Of course it helps that he loves his titbits so much. When he is sitting in his canvas cage with his head up through the open top, he is alwas generous with kissis, if you put your head down to him. He has a wounderfull expression and calmness in his eyes - an RR male to die for in my opinion. Julie and I have plans of course to use him in Kennel Hazinas breeding in the near future - how could we not - but he is of course available for other suitable females as well."

Facts about Kenai and his siblings,
The Ni'Akoya Kougar litter:

  • Kennel Ni'Akoya has only had one Rhodesian Ridgeback litter: The Kougar litter born 27th December 2014.

  • Julie Lorentzen, the breeder of the Kougar litter, left Kennel Ni'Akoya in the beginning of 2016 due to special circumstances, and shortly after Lena invited Julie to join Kennel Hazinas as her equal partner.

  • As all information about the Kougar litter was deleted from Kennel Ni'Akoya's homepage for some reason, the litter naturally became a part of the Hazinas Family and enjoy the same care and welfare as all Hazinas' litters. As the Kougar litter's mum, Hazinas 4th Tafika (called Fika), had her first 2 litters at Hazinas, we now look upon her 3rd litter as "The Kougar Litter to Hazinas". They also have their own page on our website.

  • Julie has earlier been a co-breeder at Kennel Hazinas, as Fika is the mother of Hazinas 5th and 6th litters.

  • The Kougar litter is Fika's third and last litter.
