Hi welcome to Dakotawindstar.
 I am Sandy Koranda and pictured above are some of my family as well. From left to right, my daughter Angie, husband Tom, one of my granddaughters, Cyrah, who just graduated from high school, me, my daughter Christina and my daughter-in-law Annie.


Our grandchildren

Caeden, 19 and the newest graduate Cyrah.

They both helped me in the kennel growing up and were the ones who loved
socializing my puppies.  


Here is Cashmere.  She is 9 and my helper all the time.  Just like her brother and sister before her,
 she is wonderful at socializing the puppies.
She is a little "go getter" and will do whatever

I ask her to do.  It isn't all fun and games,
She also cleans and feeds.

Very grateful to have her. 






Our Dogs

  I have been raising dogs for over 35 years.  All of my dogs are AKC registered.  I strive to breed for puppies who exemplify the AKCbreed standard.  All though I am not a show kennel,  we have placed puppies in show homes.  My dogs have very good bloodlines and many AKC champions in their pedigrees.  I will not breed a dog who is not physically sound or has a bad temperament.  All of my dogs are healthy and happy.  There is no perfection, only the drive to attain it. 



Our Dogs home

I refer to the kennel as their home because they spend the majority of their time in the play yards and come back in to the kennel at night.  My kennel has indoor outdoor runs with shade in the summer and fresh air year round.  We have central air and heat, and  automatic waters so they always have fresh water. I have two acres of play yards with plastic swimming pools in the summer. 

My Frenchies love the water. Even though they are adults, they still love to play outside, roll in the grass, jump in the pools and play with each other. The puppies also go outside in their own play yard. New sights, sounds, tastes and smells are critical to their overall development. All my puppies are well socialized before they leave here. 
 Thanks for stopping by.
