(Barb Wieda Altman & Jim Wieda)

 

Countryside Kennels, Inc. was built in 1967. My parents, Jim & Pat Wieda, the founders of this first class facility, realized that their love for animals started at early childhood and is still present today.  My family started showing dogs in 1965. We were involved in many different breeds such as Poodles, Shih-Tzus, Cocker Spaniels, English Setters, and Akita’s. We showed extensively in the U.S. and Canada and have raised many champions since. During the showing of Shih Tzus, I being the oldest daughter, Barb, at the age of 7 was helping with showing and grooming.  At age 11, I started grooming with my father, Jim Wieda in the family business - Countryside Kennels in Zeeland, Michigan. Since then I have been rated #1 groomer in Southwest Michigan multiple times.

In 1987, my parents, Jim and Pat Wieda, sold the kennel and business to me. Since then the facility has doubled in size, and has been rated #1 Kennel in Southwest Michigan since my purchase. In the year 2000, I hired my sister Patti Wieda Walker to manage the facility for me. Also one of Patti’s twin daughters, Heather Walker has joined in the family tradition and now works full time at the kennel.  I can't tell you how much you will love our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

We take great pride in our family business and are always striving to keep up the great name that Countryside Kennels has made for itself. We feel that our facility is 2nd to none, and has a family history that we are proud of.  We welcome you to come meet the family and tour the facility and let your pets experience the difference. 

Sincerely,

Barb Wieda Altman
