Our story



Though we had shared our home with other dogs before, a Cocker Spaniel, and 2 Dalmatians, it’s our first Miniature Pinscher, Gemma spod Katedry, who unquestionably started the Miniature Pinscher monarchy in our small kingdom. When buying Gemma 18 years ago, we didn’t consider establishing the kennel; however, with years and days our interest and commitment grow bigger and bigger, and it just happened spontaneously.

In January 1997 we registered our kennel in The Polish Kennel Club under the name of Ratlerrimus, and we raised Gemma’s first puppies. Unfortunately, we didn’t keep any pup in the kennel. When few years later we decided to expand our pack, it turned out that Gemma got in sheer desperation about the whole idea. As we care deeply about the health and happiness of our small home mates, we decided not to prefer our own whims to Gemma’s peace of mind and let her be the only child as she wished. 
Although the activity of our kennel was so to speak suspended, we didn’t waste that time and focused on studying the breed, getting familiar with the Polish and international pinscher scene, getting in touch with other breeders, and making friends with other pinscher-people from all over the world. Meanwhile, Gemma grew fond of travelling and got back to the show rings, as a veteran. Her big successes was the 4th place for 34 dogs in BIS, Nowy Dwór National Dog Show, and being awarded with the Veteran Winner title, the Polish Club Show in Łódź, both in 2004.



It was so hard to put ourselves in shape after Gemma’s death, especially to love someone new. Nevertheless, we had to be strong, and make a new start just for her, to continue what she had started.

In May 2008
 we brought from Jarosław, Poland, our new baby, Calka Pin-Min. Then in 2009 we registered our kennel in FCI under a slightly modified name - Gemmae Ratlerrimus. The reactivation of our kennel is a tribute to Gemma, and the breed we devote every spare moment ... and money ;)
