Meet The Owner & Family
Chase's Corner Kennel opened it's door to it's first client in March of 2006. After working in breeding and boarding kennels on and off the last 16 years. She felt it was time to own her own. I love the dogs. They are great friends. Chase's Corner Kennel is owned and operated by Tina Chase. Owning a Chines Shar Pei was a childhood dream of Tina's. Well she accomplished that at age 19 with her 1st Shar Pei C.B. Since now gone and missed everyday.
Tina has had dogs all of her life as a child my mother rescued an Alaskan Malamute a breed she grew up with. His name was Petey. A couple of years later we acquired an older Akita named Animal and two littermate Akita pups. Mine was One Paw and my Brothers was Skreaker. That Malamute and Akitas pulled sled for me on my paper route. They were also great protection.
Tina Breeds, Shows, Hunts, and Rescues Chinese Shar Pei and German Wirehaired Pointers. Tina now owns 8 Chinese Shar pei and 4 German Wirehaired Pointers. And one Older rescue Pei. My dogs range in age from 11 months to 13 years old. I have been breeding Shar Pei for 3 years, And looking forward to my 1st Wirehair litter in the spring of 2010. I do limited breeding. Maybe one litter a year. Jarred my son also enjoys junior showmanship. He shows or #1 pet with perks Butter.
Tina is a graduate of Forest Hills Northern High School. Attended Grand Rapids Community College for a short time. Working with the dogs was much more enjoyable. I am a member of Pet Care Services Association formerly the American Boarding Kennel Association. Taking pet care classes through there Association.
Tina is married to her husband Jeff of 10 years and has one son Jarred 10 years old. They both help in the Kennel on occasion when needed. The owning of German Wirehaired Pointers goes back to my husband that is the breed he grew up with. Jeff and Jarred both support mom in her breeding, boarding and rescue efforts.
