Voyager Dogz is comprised of myself (Kathryn) and Wilma.
I began showing in 1995 when I got my second Doberman. After my first Doberman had died of kidney failure at the age of just 5-years-old, my then-husband Chuck and I began an exhaustive search to find a healthy Doberman. Our search led us through Denver into Utah and finally we ended in Oregon with Kevin Roeckl. Kevin had just had five puppies from a breeding to his wonderful black boy Jake. He had only one red puppy in the litter, a male, and after talking with Kevin for some time, we convinced him that we would be a perfect home for the puppy.
Along the way, Chuck had been continuing to talk to some breeders here in Colorado and had attended his first dog show. He came back home from that show and told me "YOU are going to LOVE showing dogs."
Well, Chuck & I may not have been right in marriage, but he was right about that! I began attending handling classes in April 1995 and entered my very first dog show in August 1995. Luke & I placed 2nd in a class of 2, but I didn't get sick and we did well together and a love was born!
Wilma and I met in 2000 after Chuck and I divorced. Wilma loved not only my Great Danes, but also Saint Bernards. Thus, Saint Bernards came into our home.

The "kennel" name comes from our first Great Dane "Kes". Kes was named Rocwinds Starship Voyager after the Star Trek series. Although Kes never had puppies, Voyager Dogz was born :-)
After our last Doberman passed away (Isis), we decided to stick with just the Danes and St. Bernards. We did try to own a Samoyed - once - but found that it really wasn't the breed for us to live with. Only two litters (Danes) have been bred in the time we've been showing. At this time, we don't anticipate doing any more breeding as we would rather be showing and breeding is a long, expensive, stressful doing.
Although now on the Olympic Peninsual of Washington, Kathryn is still a member of the Great Dane Club of Greater Denver and maintains friendships with many people of many different breeds there. If you are interested in a puppy we will gladly help point you in the right direction. We strongly believe in the Great Dane color code of ethics and the Doberman Pinscher "Operation White-Out".
