Welcome to DiamondDrift Samoyeds. We are a small hobby & working kennel located in central Minnesota. Samoyeds are an ancient, multi-talented working breed with abilities ranging from herding to packing to sledding and we are dedicated to preserving their working dog heritage. We occasionally have puppies available for active & loving homes.

Our dogs spend many hours in harness, pulling us in a dogsled or training cart down snowy trails and country roads. We often run in dogsled races in the upper Midwest and, while our dogs may not be the fastest team on the trail, we always finish with the style, grace, and beauty that the breed is famous for. In warmer months -- between dog shows -- pack-hiking keeps us outdoors and active. We've earned the WSX (Working Samoyed Excellent) certification for all of our adult dogs from the Samoyed Club of America for sleddog racing and excursion sledding/carting. In addition to the Samoyed Club of America, we are also members of the Organization For The Working Samoyed, the Samoyed Association Of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and the North Star Sled Dog Club.

Please follow the links above and take a look at what these marvelous dogs can do. Feel free to email me if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi.

See you on the trail,
Ricq Pattay & Melanie Schatz-Pattay
