About Us - Kennels & Cattery

Michelle and Chris Emin, owners of Snowpine Kennels and Cattery, have been involved with animals for as long as they can remember.    They started showing Alaskan Malamutes in 1982 and were the founding members of the Transvaal Alaskan Malamute Club in 1985.  Chris was the chairman and Michelle the secretary for some 8 years before handing the reins over to the younger malamute enthusiasts.

In 1996 they bought their first golden retriever, Polly and immediately became involved in both showing and field trialling her. Polly became a dual champion, achieving championship status in both breed shows and field trials (retrieving). Polly's son Wesley who was born in 1999 followed in her footsteps by becoming both a show and field trial champion.

In 1997 Chris and Michelle bought ‘Boss’ a black labrador puppy who went on to became a field trial champion, despite losing his right back leg to cancer at the age of two. Despite only having 3 legs he is the top winning retrieving labrador in the country.   

The totally rundown kennels at the time were bought in 1994 by Chris and Michelle who proceeded to upgrade them into the beautiful facility it is today.

Staff @ Snowpine Kennels & CatteryTracy, the current kennel manager joined them 10 years ago and as another dedicated animal lover raised the level of pet care to even higher levels and standards.

Vets and their staff in the area all recommend Snowpine Kennels and Cattery, some even kennel their own pets at Snowpine.   This is considered to be the highest possible accolade.

The kennels and cattery are always kept spotlessley clean, upgrading and maintenance happens on an regular ongoing basis.

The kennels are conveniently situated on a main tar road, so unlike many other kennels there are no rough dirt roads to navigate  in order to reach us.
