Cassandra and Raul de la Rosa have been successful breeders and exhibitors of Lhasa Apsos under the Suntory prefix for forty years. We are American Lhasa Apso Club Breeders of Merit and have bred 80 AKC champions, including regional and national specialty winners, group winners, and international best in show champions. Our dogs regularly place in the top ten. In 2010, GCH Suntory Beastie Boy was #2 in breed. We also have owned Pekingese, Shiba Inu and a top-ten Japanese Chin.
We are committed owner-handlers, so perfecting our grooming and presentation skills was essential to highlighting the quality of the dogs we breed. Our philosophy always has favored a natural approach – enhance the qualities the dog has and let quality sell itself.
We take this approach to the new venture in our lives – bringing An Animal House and A Magical Touch products to dog show enthusiasts and pet owners who want the best for their hairy friends. We were attracted to these products because they do not contain harsh silicones, lanolin, propylene glycol, salts or bleach. Our experience has been that while these additives might make the coat look good today, the long-term effects of build-up and chemical damage are related to scratching, matting and breakage, creating more work with poorer results for the owner or handler.
We tried An Animal House and A Magical Touch products on our own dogs for over four months at our own cost before being willing to put our name behind their quality and effectiveness. Grooming is work, but you deserve products that work WITH you, yielding better results for the same effort.
We are always willing to answer questions related to the products, their use or grooming issues in general.
An Animal House and A Magical Touch Professional Grooming products are used by many of the top breeders, professional handlers and successful owner-handlers in the country, not to mention numerous pet owners who want only the best for their cherished companions.
