About TOPAZ

My name is Zena. I run a very small and selective breeding program of Alaskan Klee Kai (AKK), a very unique breed that gives most people the impression of a mini husky. The AKK are a rare breed recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA).

TO.P.A.Z. is acronym for Toronto’s (our location) Pikatti (my first klee kai) And Zena (me). Just so happens Topaz is also my birth stone, making it the perfect name for my program.

We are located in Mississauga Ontario, Canada, a suburban city just west of Toronto (in fact, the Toronto International Airport is located in Mississauga). My household includes myself, my husband Bruce, our girls Rebecca and Victoria, and the assorted furred and finned pets.  All our resident dogs are indoor house dogs who sleep in our bed, lounge on our sofa, eat off the baby’s hands, and “clean” our kitchen floor on occasion.

The goal of my breeding program is to produce dogs that match the highest desirability criteria in the breed’s written standard, with superb conformation, health, temperament and working aptitude, while respecting the original vision of the breed’s heritage and ideals. I’m not breeding to “make pets”.


Our Permanent Pack

ALGRCH USA UFA UAG1 CA URO1 CH PR’ TAYLAK S.G. KASUF PIKATTI SPOT-ON, CGN, multiple ALTERED TOTAL DOG awards

pikaprofilePika joined our  family on Sept 21, 2009. “Pikatti” is an eskimo word meaning  “companion”. She is my first Alaskan Klee Kai and my special girl.

A mellow but highly sensitive individual, Pika trains and participates in obedience, rally obedience and agility on a recreational level. She has a natural “chase” drive and excels in lure coursing.

We are thankful to June Demers of Taylak Kennels to entrust  us with this little beautiful new companion of ours! She is the proud foundation female of our breeding program.

 Pika retired from our breeding program and was spayed in September 2015.

In loving memory of our sweet girl. She did not survive an emergency surgery for a gallbladder rupture, and passed away on June 4, 2019.

Ni’cko has been removed from our breeding program when it was discovered that he has an undershot bite. Nonetheless, he shows excellent aptitude for becoming a performance dog. Currently he is training and participating in obedience and rally obedience.
