Gemedet Papillons

About Us

We are a small kennel located in Central Virginia dedicated to quality, healthy, happy Papillons. Our goals are to produce quality Papillons that are excellent examples of the breed and are successful in both the conformation and agility rings. All of our dogs live in our home and are a major part of our family.

I was first introduced to the world of purebred dogs when I attended a local dog show in 2001. At that show I met several Chinese Crested breeders and brought our first Crested home a few months later. In the following years we added two more Chinese Cresteds to the family.

I soon began to develop an interest in both Agility and Conformation and kept going to local dog shows every chance I got. I soon fell in love with the personality of the Papillon and in 2009 I got my first Papillon and my first agility dog, Ice.

I quickly became far more involved in Papillons than I ever thought I would. Ice completed his Novice and Open agility titles in his first two agility trials and quickly went on to competing in the Excellent (and what is now known as Masters) classes in his first few months of competition.

Later on I got my second papillon named Justine and began showing her as a special in the breed ring. I also began training her for the agility ring. Not long after that I added yet another Papillon to my family and became involved in the Papillon Club of America.

Justine is the daughter of Sylvio (BIS, BISS, American, Canadian, and Luxembourg Champion Monarch's Come Dance With Me) owned by Anne Nettles. Special thanks to Anne for letting me have this very special girl!

If you would like more information about any of our dogs, please email us and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can.

You may have a dog that won't sit up, roll over or even cook breakfast, not because she's too stupid to learn how but because she's too smart to bother.
