Roy Hill Bangkaew


It all began at the beginning of 2012 while still living in the UK; three years after losing our old dog, we adopted a dog meat trade rescue from Thailand. I named her Chaya (meaning "Life"). She ignited my passion for the Thai Bangkaew Dog breed. My research started to find a well-bred foundation bitch pup. At first, I turned to Paul Stanton in Sweden for a puppy from his first litter but then decided it would be suitable for the breed in Europe if more lines were imported. I found it in my Thai/Dutch. A&T Hobby Star (Imp. Thailand), a daughter of, MBIS/BISS Thai Ch. Yokthai, and a half-sister to the sensation maker BISS/Thai Ch A&T Hobby Popcorn for winning 6 Royal Cups in 1 week. Star was born in '2012 and stayed there to, hopefully, complete her Thai Championship title. She did this with solid competition, and an RBPIS also had fun in junior handling competitions due to her excellent, sweet temperament. It was such an exciting start, but unfortunately, she damaged her ear after her RCAC win at the World Winner Show '17, so she was unable to be shown again. Nevertheless, she proved to be an excellent foundation, producing from her three litters, her daughter from her 1st litter, a World Winner & 1st CACIB Winner in the World, my beloved Multi Ch. Roy Hill White Lily, JW'16, NJK, BWNL"18, WW'20, the same litter had my darling Dutch Ch. Roy Hill Mamba, JW'16, W'19, and the Swedish Ch Roy Hill Mystic Lotus (exported Sweden), Junior champions, Winner title holders, five different best puppies in breed winners, loved companions sired by Graffiti. 3 1/2 years later, Star had her 2nd litter, a repeat with Graffiti producing my handsome hunk, Roy Hill Ink Master JW'19, and Fin/Lt Ch. Roy Hill North Star (exported Finland). Star, her 3rd beautiful and last litter, sired by King (Honey X Peet Lanna's son), has had no progeny from that litter shown to date by their owners. Star is now retired and lives with a good friend close by. I hadn't intended to buy a male, but with a lack of males available in Europe, my search started for a male and placed myself on the waiting list for a combination that I liked. My dear boy, Graffiti, born in October 2013, is a son of BISS/Thai Ch. Chiangmai's TBK's Funnoi dam is the sibling to the famous MBIS/MBISS/EUW'13/Tripple WW & First Thai Grand Ch. Mitrapab Hero. Graffiti also stayed in Thailand with my handler and a dearly trusted friend Sagulchai Thanadka to complete his Thai Ch title, and did me proud by going Best In Show Specialty Baby. He completed more European titles, BBISS/Thai/Dutch/Rom/It/Hr Ch: Mitrapab Chiangmai's Graffiti, EUJW'14, JW'14, W'14 (Imp. Thailand). Graffiti has only sired three litters in his lifetime, the first Bangkaew litter born in the Czech Republic and two out of Star; sadly, Graffiti died in 2021 after a tragedy he never fully recovered. Thankfully, he left his legacy in his kids and grandkids keeping the flag flying passing on his super true Bangkaew character and winning World Winner titles, Multiple Champions in the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, France and the UK. I started searching for my second foundation bitch to combine the bloodlines that I had already brought to Europe via Star And Graffiti. It wasn't that easy at first. I had purchased the beautiful Thai Ch—Pramai, who was tragically poisoned just before coming to Europe. A few years later, I found it in the 6-month-old pup Honey, born in 2018. BPIS/BPISS/Thai/Dutch Ch. Bangkaew Lanna's Honey (Imp. Thailand). Having admired the Bangkaew Lanna kennel for many years and delighted when Honey was offered to me she was very successful in the Thai show ring winning Best Pup in Show Specialty, Best Pup In Show, Best of Breed and Group wins. She stayed in Thailand to be bred with the #1 male BIS/BISS/Thai Grand/Ph. Grand Ch. Bangkaew Lanna's Peet Lanna and I picked her up in whelp from Thailand in November 2019. This combination produced my outstanding Dutch Ch Roy Hill Splash The Cash, World Winner'21, European Winner'22, Bundesieger'21 VDH-Europasieger'22, Group placer, Dog of the Year Qualifier'22; her daughter Roy Hill Million Dollar Diamond (Blue) is also close to finishing her Dutch Ch title. Honey quickly finished her Dutch Ch title and was Holland Cup Winner'21. Honey's second litter, sired by Ink (Graffiti X Star son), produced the Junior World & BOB Winner, Czech Ch, Roy Hill Splash of Honey (exported Czech Republic) & French Ch. Roy Hill Ringmaster (exported to France). Honey has proved to be an excellent producer not only a star in the show ring; her 3rd litter are still juniors and her kids, Junior Ch. Roy Hill Thai Tiger (exported Croatia) already won multiple Baby Best in Show placements, an adult & puppy group placement and Int/Multi Junior Ch. Roy Hill Wild Honey (exported from Finland) has won multiple Junior Champion titles for its owners. Thank you to the breeders who have entrusted me with my foundations. The owners for choosing a Roy Hill-bred puppy and loving my babies as much as I do. In return, I'm always happy to help. On solid foundations, we build together.

How it began

How it began

"Bang Kaew dog breed" has been known for a long time by dog lovers in Thailand. history of origin The study, published in the Veterinary Journal of Kasetsart University, states that most of the information is anecdotal from the current generation. The first ancestors of the Bang Kaew breed of Thai dogs. Born around 1862 and is a cross between a Thai domestic dog and a wild dog or dhole raised by the former abbot of Wat Bang Kaew. However, the Bangkaew dog has been the pet of the villagers of Ban Bang Kaew and nearby sub-districts. Officials of the Department of Livestock Development decided to develop and select species and exhibited them outside the community until Bang Kaew Dog is known to the outside world. Student veterinarian at the time Dr Nisit Trakanpong Former Livestock officer in Phitsanulok Province is known in the Bangkaew dog breeding community as the "Bang Kaew Dog Initiator Dr Nisit", and has written dozens of academic texts on this breed of dog. Revealing the story of making Bang Kaew dogs known began in 1982 or just over 40 years ago. "I'm glad, tell them (cultivators) everyone that the following is not Phitsanulok's dog anymore. It's the dog of Thailand. He's already the dog breed of the world. We must hold on to this that Phitsanulok is the owner of the birthplace. The 80-year-old veterinary told BBC that He went to work in Phitsanulok in 1971. At that time, the Bang Kaew dog breed was only known in Phitsanulok. But in the area, they are known to be good breeds of dogs. The special feature is the "fierce", beautiful shape, and love for the owner he told the newspaper. The student said that who would ask for a Bang Kaew puppy to adopt? Must be exchanged for 1 box of ammunition. "In 1971, it was a forest. The car was difficult to get to. We had to go by boat. It's hard to get a dog. There was no trading at that time. Exchange for a shotgun 300 baht per dog." Dr Nisit said that when becoming a provincial livestock officer, therefore, I wanted to conserve the species of Bang Kaeo. He and the district livestock officers so they went to explore the village. At that time, the village where the Bang Kaew dog was found. stand out as Baan Chum Saeng Songkhram. The sub-district is not far from Ban Bang Kaeo. Dogs were brought to the contest for the first time in the Naresuan Maharat and Red Cross Fair of Phitsanulok in 1980, two years later when the budget was received from the province. Thus began the selection and development of the breed. as well as searching for good quality breeders Registered until it is the origin of another point where the Bang Kaew dog breed is known since then. The vet said that at that time The officers surveyed the village. To find 25 males, 70-80 females that were registered for breeding records. "At Chum Saeng Songkhram We made an appointment to bring the dogs together. We walked to see the dogs in the village, selecting, this one shouldn't be bred. Catch it. Take only what it looks like in colour and markings that was our first criteria. It is considered that Chum Saeng Songkhram, Village No. 2, is the group that helps Bang Kaew dogs to prosper." As for the popularity of the Bang Kaew dog, Dr Nisid told the Newspaper that when it was exhibited at the Red Cross event for the first time, “There were so many interested people that they can't buy a puppy. to buy a dog breeder then buy one 10,000-20,000 baht" The turning point of Bang Kaew dog breeds occurs when "Fierce" can't be sold. "Upright ears, thick fur, bushy tail, pointed mouth" is a distinctive feature of the Bangkaew dog said the Student to the newspaper, it's different from other Thai dogs in general. Bangkaew breeding market in the first phase Buyers usually take Bang Kaew to watch over the farm. Even in the southern region, they still travel to Phitsanulok, but their "fierceness" of Bang Kaeo has begun to decline in popularity. "In 1995, the fierceness began to not sell. Therefore, we have selected the dogs that are not fierce," said the Vet, and said that that year, he began to educate the breeders. Mainly looking at the breeder to develop the Bangkaew breed to become tamer. At the age of 80 years, he said that the Bangkaew puppy breeding industry has changed. Some experts have a lot of knowledge. And what will make this breed of dog famous next is the breeding that is technically correct. “Don't worry about anything, the breed is fine. The rules are written according to the breed standard. Do not distort the standard itself. will make us live forever.” Samart Singtothong, President of the Thai Bangkaew Kennel Club, Thailand and the owner of the farm in Phitsanulok province said that at present in the Bangkaew dog breed, there are farms in almost every province across the country. Moreover, the body of knowledge can be accessed through many channels, but nowadays in Phitsanulok itself. The number of farms was greatly reduced. Due to the age of the farm owner and the economic situation Samart, who owned the dog at the European Championships in Belgium in 2015, said that before the Bangkaew breed was certified as a World Dog. There is a temporary registration certificate that allows them to be exported abroad and to compete. He saw that being registered had a beneficial effect on Thailand, similar to having a copyright that other countries could not take away. "The main purpose of Bang Kaew in the past that made it popular was to take care of the house Because, in the past, Bang Kaeo was very fierce and famous for their loyalty. We evolved that way. in order not to be mentally aggressive, when competing, the judge must check teeth, and testicles in males, look at the structure, and if unable to touch him, threaten him, he will be kicked out of the ring. But now, Bang Kaew has a much better temperament. able to compete for top honours".

I currently have an adult available on Co-ownership but outright considered. You can inquire. I very rarely have an adult available but it can happen that some dogs don't fit into the pack or need a quieter life when retired.
