About Kennel Working Mates


Working Mates is a small kennel located about 40 minutes from Stockholm, Sweden.
We are a family of four, Me - Renata, my husband Mats and our two children Natasha & Nicolas. We live in a small picturesque village called Örsundsbro, not far from Uppsala with our 4 dogs.


Since I was 12 years old (1996) and got my first dog, a Doberman called Cheri, I have been training and competing in different dog sports.
Soon after, I also started to help out with courses for other children and their dogs, and I was also on the board for youths- Stockholms Hundungdom.
I have always been fascinated by the dogs language, and reading the dogs comes naturally to me. I always want to learn more, and that's the great thing about dogs, there is always something new to learn from every dog.

I´m educated to be a zookeeper and have worked as a volunteer to rehabilitate Gibbon apes in Thailand. I have also worked as a veterinary nurse at Bagarmossens animal hospital.
At the moment I'm qualified as an Agility (A1-A2), Obedience, Puppy and Freestyle instructor. Recently I've also become a Freestyle and HTM judge.
I´m also active in the club SPKK (Svenska Prazsky Krysarik klubben) and currently elected on the board.
In 2014 I received the great honor of being team leader for the National team in Freestyle & HtM.


I work with all of my dogs in different sports not just because I LOVE working with my best friends, but also because I can see what's in them before I decide to use them in my breeding.
I know what is wanted in a working dog, in any kind of work, and that will help you find the dog that will suit your needs.

WORKING MATES - dogs without limits


Stands for that I breed dogs that are able to do anything! The worst thing I know is people saying that they don´t need a good looking dog because they are just gonna work cattle or do Agility with it.
I usually answer, well don´t you want your dog to be healthy and able to work hard for many years? Of course everyone´s answer is YES!
And then there are people that want the opposite: - I just want a good looking dog that doesn´t need to be able to work, and then my answer is - buy yourself a pug!

What I want is a great looking dog - not only so it will be able to win at shows, but a well built dog is also able to work hard for many years whithout injuries. In other words, I want the whole package!

I breed two very different breeds, but they are both very active with big hearts & brains!
You can read more about why I chose these breeds and the goals I have with my breeding on the kennel page.

If you have any questions or want to know more about our dogs, you are welcome to contact Working Mates!
