Nelson Kennels est. 1969 - Nelson Volta Kennels est. 2010
A Little History About our Passion by Linda Azevedo
In 1969 Nelson Kennels was established by my parents, Norm and Pat Nelson. Dad did the training and mom started a grooming business at the kennel. We are blessed to have our family, my brother Steven, and his son and my sister, Terry and her husband Gary Basak close. This is a true family business and everyone helps. My husband Danny is the "glue" that holds the operation together. Danny can manufacture or fix anything! Our three adult children, Scott, and the twins, Jennifer and Jenell all work in the business. Scott trains the dogs and Jennifer and Jenell work in the office and everybody takes their turn on "kennel duty".
I started training with Dad when my kids were little and it wasn't long before Scott was trailing grandpa and asking a lot of "whys' and doing a lot of observing. By the time Scott was a teenager, he and we, knew he was destined to follow in Grandpa's footsteps and train bird dogs. Our family loves good bird dogs, all breeds, although our primary breed is the GSP, we always know where you can find quality litters of German Wirehaired Pointers, Brittanys, Vizsulas, , Griffons, Spinonis and Weims; plus all the different breeds of setters. We are always willing to "Point" you in the right direction for your specific gundog needs and desires!
Scott chose the prefix of Volta to add to Grandpa's in 2010. He started testing his breeding theories by combining particular bloodlines together. He has done extreamly well in the last five years. He has won two National Futurities in 2008 and 2010 with dogs breed from the same bloodlines but successive litters and since 2007, he has finished numerous Field Champions. Pictured above is the beautiful plaque presented to Scott for his Field Trial achievements in 2007. The family is so proud of his abilities, he is a true dog whisperer.
