About Us

REGALIA TIBETAN TERRIERS was begun in 1976 when we had the good fortune to meet Miss Anne Kelemn of TI SONG TIBETAN TERRIERS.  That meeting resulted in our becoming enamoured with the breed and becoming the proud ownerrs of a beautiful female puppy, Happy, who would quickly become Champion Ti Songs Happiness Is Hope, our first Champion Tibetan Terrier.

The rest is history.  At Regalia we are proud to have had our dogs serve as the foundation for and included in the pedigrees of many of the best known and top winning TibetanTerrier beeders.

We are not a kennel.  Our dogs are raised as companions in our home with love and affection.  Health and temperament are primary concerns of our breeding program.  Our pups are raised around our other dog and our very patient cat, Mr. Bumpy, with lots of visits from neighborhood children who stop by almost every day.  When the pups are old enough they have a large yard in which they romp and learn about the great outdoors.  It isn’t unusual for us to hear a little knock on the door and find some of the neighorhood children asking “Can the pups come out to play?”.

Prior to breeding our dogs obtain OFA and CERF Certificaion as well as DNA testing for PLL, NCL & PRA to assure us that they do not have those hereditary conditions.  Because of of our early attention to the available health tests in our breed we are able to provide a strong health guarantee on our pups

We live in a lovely small town in the “Gold Country” area of the California Sierra Foothills.  Our dog owners and prospective puppy buyers frequently spend the night or weekend in our historic Victorian guest house, which is on the National Register Of Historic Places, and enjoy the sights this interesting part of California History.

In our 35 years in the breed in addition to health and personality we have remained true to our desire to produce living art through “Sculptural Genetics”
