Keyala Dobermanns was born in the UK in
1988, and in 2007 because of the docking ban in the UK we decided to
register our kennel name "KEYALA" in France, but to our
disappointment because of the UK kennel club not being a
member of the FCI we were not allowed to transfer the affix,
so we had to have a new name, so we decided in recognition
of our most influential breeding female "Ch.Keyalas Wot a
Thriller" known to her friends as "Rosie" we now breed under
the FCI Kennel name of " WOT A THRILLER ".
Ch.Keyalas Wot a Thriller
It all started with my first
male "Bugsy" UK & Irish Champion Bilsam the Thriller J.W.
The first Brown Dobe ever to hold both titles! An
achievement we are very proud of. He also qualified for the
Pedigree Chum Champion Stakes finals & was Runner Up in the
Veteran Stakes 3 times. He was grandson of a very
influential sire in the early 80's namely "Rosecroft by the
way to Bilsam" an American Import who's pedigree was a mix
of the famous Vom Ahrtal & Liquorish Kennels in the US.

We exhibit & handle all our own
dogs + dogs from other kennels that stay with us all over
Europe & we train our dogs for CSAU, TAN, TAT, TC + French

In 2002 we introduced Russian bloodlines to our own
established UK lines, we choose these lines because of the
super strong heads & fantastic bone, we imported a male
first "Ch.Rensdorff Evsey" known as "Ice" then 2 years later
a female from the outstanding "U" litter of Sant Kreal
namely "Ursula" Sant Kreal Utro Severa.

We pride ourselves in the fact
that all our dogs are VWD Clear, they are all regularly
tested for DCM, eyes are tested on all dogs that are bred
from & no Male is offered at stud without a Hip Score.
When we sell our puppies, all homes are thoroughly checked.
We never sell anybody a puppy as a guard dog, or if it is
going to be kept in outside kennels. All new puppy owners
are given a contract of sale stating, if there are any
problems we will accept back the dog at any time or any age.
All our dogs live in our house as part of the family & once
we decide to keep a puppy it stays with us for the rest of
it's life. We never re-home dogs because they are "not good
