Living now in Riviera and moving in three countries region, Monaco, French Riviera and Italian Riviera, Monika is originally from Estonia and used to be the soul and the heart of the White Swiss Shepherd Community in Estonia whose leadership made remarkable impact to the White Swiss Shepherd existence and success in Estonia.

Starting from German Shepherd Dogs of a show line, then adding White Swiss Shepherds into the pack, obtaining a working line German Shepherd from Czech Republic and finally a KNPV line Malinois from the Netherlands, Monika nowdays breeds only Belgian Shepherd Malinois and White Swiss Shepherd Dogs.

Monika believes that every dog should be trained, so even though, being years a very successful dog show enthusiast with the numerous Best in Group and Best in Show placings with highest achievement of Best of Group 1 place, Best of Baby 1 place, Best of Juniors 2 place etc., Monika has switched mostly on dog sport and dogs performance in training field and in real life.

The goal of the breeding is healthy animals with capability to perform in training fields as well as in real life, both White Swiss Shepherds and Belgian Shepherd Malinois. Clear head, high drives, excellent ability to learn, will to work for owner, courage and strength of mind according to the breed. Genetics is what makes dogs good in tracking and protection, obedience is the bond between owner and the dog plus will and ability to understand each other.

Who We Are 3

Heli Laneman

Heli Laneman is the daughter of Monika Laneman who is the Breeder and founder of BTWW kennel. Heli continues BTWW breeding under Born to Win White kennel name in Estonia and is member of Estonian White Shepherd Association.

Heli has lived with dogs for as long as she remembers. She got her first very own dog at age 12 who was a White Shepherd import from Czech Republic named Arizona W. Bohemia Mandiga. Together they combined the most perfect team for dog shows and were winning almost every dog dog show they ever entered. And got podium placements in almost every Best in Group and Best in Show ring they ever entered!

Heli’s next dog was grandson of Arizona, Born to Win White Spartacus with whom they also participated successfully in dog shows achieving several Junior Champion titles and Winner titles.

Being a daughter to Monika has given her access to specific knowledge and several generations carefully planned breeding dogs so it was the only logical step to continue the mothers work at some point.

Like Heli says: White Shepherd is the best friend and companion a man can wish for!
