About us

Hello my name is Kornelia Geldrich and my husband Michael and I purchased what was formally Sentinel Kennels 

After getting married we moved to Rossland BC where we decided to start a family , We had three wonderful children Derek, Christel and Kevin. I decided to be a stay at home Mom and started an in home family Day care ​,Kornelia's Family Day Care. I was registered with Fair in Trail and ran my Day Care for 27 years. I have always loved animals and we had a wide variety of pets. Cats, birds, bunnies, turtles, hamsters, hedge hogs and of course dogs. I raise rough and smooth collies. My passion besides my grandchildren. Hayden, Cohen, Lane, Chasey and Lily is a love of  raising collies. I love doing performance with them. We do Rally, Agility, Nose work and Confirmation in the Show ring.  My dogs have earned many titles and I believe strongly in positive training.  I have taken many classes and training seminars locally.

It was time to move out of Rossland due to my husbands disability and the snow load being just to much to manage.  I have always had a strong bond and love for animals, especially dogs. I use the same philosophies with dogs as I did with children. I do not allow practicing of unwanted behaviours such as barking relentlessly at another dog making them feel intimated. I never make a dog feel trapped when they are uncomfortable. I have experience with dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments. I only do individual care and do not mix client dogs. Positive reinforcement is our motto.

Thank you for trusting me with your family member
