Nikola Smolic


I was born in Split in 1980 and in 1999 I moved to Zagreb, where I studied Psychology and Entrepreneurship. My first show dog was an American Staffordshire Terrier, Multi Ch Cheyenne That’s the Point. Since 2005 I bred and owned Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Miniature and Rabbit Dachshunds, Bull Terriers, Shiba Inu and Old English Sheepdog. And since then I have had numerous World Champions, European Champions, Top Dogs of all times in our country, winners of numerous BIS on many prestigious shows and bred approximately 200 champions all over the world. Since 2023 together with my spouse I am breeding Australian Shepherds, Miniature American Shepherds and Miniature and Rabbit Dachshunds under prefix “Nizio’s”. For many years I worked as an all breed handler winning many BIS, groups, European and World Winner titles. I am international FCI all breed judge. Till now I judged in most of the European countries, Asia and South Africa. I am also President of Breeding Commission of the Croatian Kennel Club, acting President of the FCI Breeding Commission and President of Croatian Tibetan Breed Club. At school I studied ancient Greek and Latin and in music school classical piano and opera singing. Music has remained my big love and great part of my life.
