Nuria Alvarez G.

I was born in Barcelona, Spain. My professional career was developed in the area of Taxation and Finance, having completed my university career in the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Barcelona, obtaining the TAX AND ACCOUNTED GRADUATE. Later I studied a Master in ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT OF COMPANIES in the European School of Business Management.

Financial professional and animal lover by vocation, I started with my first Shar-Pei in 1994 and it was not until 2003 when I had my first litter, registering at that time the name of my kennel in the FCI, through the RSCE, under the prefix “DRAGON DE KOSHI”.

In love with an unknown and at the same time surprising breed, with her feline and stubborn temperament and her peculiar morphology, I was involved in the breed, going to dog shows and achieving such outstanding successes as: World Champions, European Champions, BISS Monographs, and Champions from countries such as USA, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, France, Mexico, Peru, Paraguay, Sweden, among others, being the first and only Spanish breeder of Shar-Peis to win 2 years in a row the BOB at Crufts.

Our daily work of selection and daily improvement has made our Kennel one of the references of the breed worldwide. Proof of this is that we can find dogs breeded by DRAGON DE KOSHI, in Portugal, France, Italy, Ireland, England, Croatia, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Switzerland, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, United States, El Salvador, etc.

My passion for dogs and learning more about them has led me to study their morphology, temperament and characteristics of each breed. I am International Judge for the RSCE of several breeds of Group 1, Group 2 and Group 8, among them, several Spanish races, having judged in several International and National exhibitions, as well as Special of the breed. 

Recently  invited to judge the Obligatory Point to obtain the Spanish Championship and the Group Special at the World Exhibition Madrid 2020.

I have collaborated in publications of national and foreign scope, yielding images for covers of catalogs, writing articles related to the breed and granting interviews. I have actively participated in Clubs, having been Treasurer of the CHINESSE SHAR-PEI CLUB DE ESPAÑA and currently, President of the same and Ambassador of Spain in the EUROPEAN FEDERATION SHAR-PEI CLUB.

I currently share my job as Financial Director in a large company in the automotion sector, with my passion for the Shar-Peis. We live in the middle of nature, in a small village of Alt Penedés, surrounded by vineyards, in a quiet and peaceful environment. They help me to disconnect from daily stress.
