About Us

koppelmaastrichtShiny Sensations originally started as Dobermannkennel Van Avendia ( from 1989 to 2006 quit a few litters were bred at this name)

Visiting the UK at the Supeta’s Dobermannkennel I for the first time got in contact with Whippets. Supeta’s turned out not only to be a Dobermann breeder but also a Whippet breeder. From the first moment I was impressed by this velvet feeling, graceful dogs.
From that moment I decided, one day I want to have a Whippet, and this moment came sooner than I thought. Within a couple of years a puppy walked into my office and into my heart, Kayla was totally not impressed by the big Dobermanns walking around. She stayed right away and my love for the Whippet grew really quickly. Because Kayla was a Running-Whippet I could not really s how and at that moment I really would like to be able to show Whippets. Therefore I contacted my friend in the UK again, I asked Sue Mycroft of Supeta’s Whippets to help me to get a show Whippet.

After a couple of months, the second Whippet arrived, Supeta’s Billie Jean, a beautiful bitch! A Whippet with a fantastic Body and a fantastic character, my love right away.

Billie became the foundation bitch of our breedingprogram. In 2008 we mated her to Boxing Helena’s Epos Pente and decided to keep 2 puppies out of this combination and with this two, a dog and a bitch we started showing. After that time we kept a few Whippets more, some homebred, some bought by other breeders. You can find anything about them on their own pages.

By now we have a nice Whippetfamily living with us in the house. We take them to show’s and coursings on a regulary basis.
