We are farmer family from Halikko, near by Salo. Our family contains husband Raine and children Emmi (-96) and Essi (-98). I “work” at home.


From my childhood I have always had dogs, and each of them have left their paw prints into my heart and memories.


My dog show hobby started with junior handler winning with mixbreed Pipsa-dog in 70’s. German shepherds we had until year -97 when we got our very first leonberger “Cismet” from kennel Nessleo.


Our interest for leonbergers growed becourse this breed is suitable for families with little children … And that was start for this all… Leonbergers have truly filled our hearts. We love it’s easy temperament as family dog and lovely looks. And so we got our second leonberger “Elga” from kennel Nessleo too.


Very first Yestas-leos were born 2002, and we kept “Asta” from that litter.


I’m a member of Finnish Kennel Club and Finnish Leonberger Club. I'm also a member of committee and breedingcomittee of Lagotto club.


I do follow the rules of Finnish Leonberger Club in my breedings.


I hope You have nice time in my page…
