Welcome to Sugar Plum Lowchen
My name is Vicki Ronchette and I live in the SF Bay Area. After 24 years breeding, showing and competing with Dachshunds I decided I wanted to get involved with another breed. Alexia Rodriguez of Potrero Lowchen became a client of mine and suggested I meet her Lowchen. She invited me to meet her Lowchen as well as the other dogs and owners in our area. Lowchen is a rare breed and to have more than one at a show is unusual. After that single meeting I decided I wanted a Lowchen. I obtained a puppy from Potrero's first Lowchen litter and fell in love with the breed. My first Lowchen, Cannoli aka Ch. Potrero and Tapestry's Sugar Plum Fairy NTD finished her championship and is a wonderful addition to our family.
In addition to being a breeder of Lowchen, I am also the owner of Show Dog Prep School and Braveheart Dog Training. I am the author of Positive Training for Show Dogs, From Shy to Showy and Ready? Set. SHOW!
The Lowchen is a rare breed and in danger of becoming extinct. We have very few breeders in the US which is one of the reasons I plan to breed them. More people should get to know this wonderful breed. They are generally healthy, friendly, social and non-shedding. They are the best kept secret of the dog world.
