Robert Filipović, founder of “Dalmatinski vrisak” kennel was taught to live with and to love animals when he was just a little boy. This love towards all animals he inherited from his mother. Robert Filipović was raised in the village of Kašće, near Ljubuški, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, surrounded by all kinds of animals. Since he was just a boy, goats and dogs had a special place in his heart.

After finishing two colleges in Croatia, Robert decided to settle down and start a family. Soon after that, he realized that his family was not complete without animals to love. Thus, he bought his first two Tornjak dogs, and very soon he opened a kennel. Robert’s kennel “Dalmatinski vrisak” is dedicated to breading extremely clean bloodlines, which have been proven to be excellent.

Today, Robert breeds three native Croatian breeds – Tornjak, Croatian sheepdog, and Medji (Small Međimurje dog). Robert and his associates give these animals all their love, and in return, they get a faithful friend, that is dedicated, loyal and beautiful and achieves excellent results in dog shows and exhibitions all over the world. 


Robert Filipović says that he is much more involved in breeding Tornjak breed because Tornjak is an old breed first mentioned in the 11th century, that hasn’t changed much over the years. Tornjak is true to himself. Tornjak is a large and powerful dog, created for cold climates, whose strength and appearance are the result of his past and the tasks he was created to do.  

Dalmatinki vrisak kennel is the home of many world and European champions, and also of local Dog Show winners. Also, Dalmatinski vrisak is the first kennel to own four dogs that have closed international champions.

Some of the best results dogs from this kennel have achieved are: two Best in Show titles (Dog Shows held in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina), 3rd place Best in Show (Dog Show held in Finland), 4th place Best in Show (World Dog Show held in Leipzig).
