UKC Ch. Nikita NTD - Our Young Promise

The Newest Addition at Ironsmith Alabai

Nikita (RKF reg'd name Hafsa Imperial Asmira) was bred by Olga Rakaeva, the Vice President of the Moscow Kennel Club and owner of Imperial Kennel. Olga was kind enough to hand-pick Nikita for our program, selecting her for her great potential to be a dog who will 'do it all'; personal and property protection, conformation (showing) and being a devoted family member.


Nikita's dam, Saulet, is a serious guardian dog who has been tested and proven in protection work. Not only is she a loyal guardian, she is also a beautiful and well proportioned female. Nikita's sire, Shaman, is an evenly-tempered, powerful dog with stunning conformation. Nikita takes after Shaman in looks, being nearly a clone of him in female form.


We began showing Nikita competitively in June, 2019 and she became a Champion in September 2019. We will start her full course of health testing at approximately 1 year of age. She has already had her genetic testing completed, with a clear/normal result. She will continue to accompany us as many places as possible to ensure she is well adjusted and properly socialized.


Even at her young age, she is already demonstrating guardian instincts and has an intimidating, deep bark. She is a very happy puppy and is quite affectionate. Training her has been a joy as she is highly intelligent and food driven. She is a quick learner and impresses me daily with her intuitive, loving nature. She is a joy to have in the family and we love her deeply.


We are excited to see her develop and grow into the stunning, loyal guardian we know she will be.

UKC Conformation Winner

We are actively showing Nikita in UKC Conformation events. She earned her UKC Championship in September 2019! She has several first place finishes, best female and best of breed placements. We are very proud that she earned her Champion title at only 9 months old!


While Nikita is still very young, we have had many wonderful comments from judges who she has shown under. We believe she has a lot of promise to do big things in the conformation world!


Nikita finished the 2019 show season as the #2 Central Asian Shepherd in the UKC, behind our Mishka who finished as #1.

Novice Trick Dog - NTD Title

One of only 3 NTD Titled Central Asian Shepherds!

Nikita earned her Novice Trick Dog title on January 3rd, 2020! We are extremely proud of this accomplishment since only 3 Central Asian Shepherds hold this title (and we own 2 of them!). Nikita is a very biddable and eager girl and we look forward to working towards higher levels of Trick Dog titles with her!

Nikita's Health Testing Results

Health Testing - Results not Excuses

The photo gallery above features Nikita's Canine Health Check and PennHip report, as well as her hip & elbow X-Rays. Expand the gallery if needed to view all photos. Photos of her official OFA certificates will be added as soon as we receive them in the mail! So check back soon!


Do NOT be fooled by breeders who promise they produce healthy pups... but cannot show you a single health test which has been perfomed on their breeding dogs.


ASK FOR PROOF before spending your hard earned money. A GOOD breeder invests in proving their breeding dogs are healthy BEFORE breeding! Period!
