My love for Samoyeds began as a child as I spent my younger years growing up on a farm in Maryland.
I attended dog shows with my parents Kathleen & Biaggio Parma as they raised Old English Sheepdogs. My parent's kennel name was "Bobtail" Old English Sheepdogs. My mother was an excellent breeder and groomer and my father was a great professional handler and trainer. I learned very young how to groom, correctly breed, and show dogs. At the dog shows I was always attracted to the Samoyed and their beautiful smile, coats and charm.
In the early 80's I acquired my foundation bitch, Ch. Casablanca's Dash of Panache from Kennette Tabor, a Samoyed breeder from Chesapeake, VA. Kennette taught me many grooming tips and handling techniques that I have used all these years.
My passion sent me practically across the US via automobile to do my first breeding. My mission was to breed the perfect Samoyed. Who in their right mind drives days and days to make the perfect match? Some of us breeders do! I was barely legal age but I had a clear vision then and now. My passion to breed, show and develop the Samoyed breed by sharing and teaching continues to grow.
Cassi, my foundation bitch, was carefully bred to the top dogs in this country to produce the foundation of White Magic Samoyeds. Those dogs were Ch. Ice Way's Ice Breaker, Ch. Wolf River's Drumlin, Ch. Christori's Spendid Sparkler and Ch. Northwind's Rising Star. The dogs Cassi and her children produced are pictured throughout this new website. Enjoy and you will soon learn how I produced the dogs I have today!
I have been breeding and showing Samoyeds for more than 30 years now. I have produced Best In Show, Best In Specialty, Westminster and Eukanuba Dog Show Winners along with many Multi Group Winning Samoyeds. I am rebuilding this website so that you may see where the Samoyeds I have produced came from through the years. Here you will see photos of each dog, their pedigrees a photo gallery and even video of many of the dogs that I can share with you.
If you have a Samoyed that is through White Magic and you would like to have your dogs information and history on my site, please send me an email with your information and your dogs photos and I will be glad to post his or her information. I don’t want to leave anyone out that wants to be a part of the White Magic History.
I have been a professional dog groomer and owner/handler since the 80’s. I am currently retired as a professional groomer and my daughter Dana has picked up the torch and has taken over the grooming business and the breeding program in the northeast. I opened my first grooming shop called Magic Touch in Mount Airy MD in 1987. I opened a new Magic Touch in Danbury CT in 1995 and opened a new location in Brookfield CT in June of 2010. The new Magic Touch Grooming Shop is located directly across the street from Brookfield Animal Hospital at 328 Federal Rd, Brookfield, CT.
I have shown and handled literally hundreds of Samoyeds to their championships and I have also shown and completed the championships in the Dalmatian ring, Newfoundland, Siberian Husky, Briard, Cairn Terriers and other various dogs. I soon will no longer be handling professionally for clients as I am applying for my judging license and cannot show dogs unless I own or co own the dog I am handling. I also feel it is a conflict of interest for me to show and to be judging.
I am applying for my AKC Judging license in Samoyeds, and I belong to the Stewards Club Of America and help ring stewarding and judge at AKC Sanctioned Matches and Samoyed Specialties in Sweepstakes to date.
I look forward to at last writing my book about the Samoyed and the correlation between dog and human. I have just completed the White Magic Samoyed Coffee Table book which is titled “The Best of The First 35 Years Of White Magic Samoyeds” with over 200 beautiful dogs and their photos over the past 35 years. This is available exclusively to my White Magic Samoyed families and Co-Owners.
It's really exciting to see where I started and where I am today. I am grateful to my parents and my Samoyed friends and partners for their help and friendship in this wonderful experience. There are too many names to mention, but their names and dogs are listed on this website and I thank all of you who have touched my life.
White Magic Samoyeds have the status of many top winning dogs around the world.
We are as far away as:
If it's not posted on this website, planned, sanctioned, endorsed or authorized by myself, then it’s not a White Magic Samoyed. A breeding can be totally changed in just ONE generation. That’s all it takes to change the look, temperament and everything you want and see from this website.
And to give you an example, here are some of my glowing endorsements:
Congratulations to Heather Shannon who is a hard working partner with Carrie & White Magic Samoyeds. Heather has been with White Magic Samoyeds since 2001 showing and breeding with Carrie Parma-Collier. We are very proud to have her part of our team.
Also with much appreciation for all their hard-work I would like to thank my beautiful and talented daughter Dana, Marsha and Dennis Angelillo, Sharon & Dennis Miller, Richard & Marcia Phelps, Patsy & Robert Burns, Patty Sullivan, Angela DeLisle, Arianna Pelletier, Mercedes Cruz, Danielle Murray and all of my co owners who make White Magic Samoyeds the successful kennel and breeding program that it is today!
A special thank you to Jerry Blank for all the beautiful photos and calendars we make each year and my graphic artist Judith Therault and her husband Pat for all their support to make the new Coffee table book a reality and Judith’s assistance with making each new website page we build beautiful.
So make sure you check in with us to confirm the validity of a breeding you may be interested in. There are breeders I do work with and confirm the quality and excellence of their breeding programs, and there are also frauds. So always be sure who you are working with.
My Ideal Samoyed
This is my personal view of what the Samoyed should be:
Bear heads, with beautiful smiles, long flowing tail that are gently over the back not too tight nor too loose. The length of back should be proportionate to the length of leg with a look that you feel is what the breed should represent. We all have our own picture on our minds what this Breed type should be, after viewing my pages and photos, you will see what White Magic Samoyeds Breed type is.
This means mechanically and anatomically put together correctly so they move in a single tracking motion, which when built correctly they move effortlessly. When they throw it in to sixth gear and over drive there is literally air in between the ground and their paws! This motion is done with little to no effort. It should take your breath away. For more detailed information you can see the Samoyed Breed Standard on the AKC Website.
A Sammy's coat is white and many have a trace of biscuit on the tips of the ears and other areas of the body. This brilliant magical flowing coat of white radiance with beautiful silver tips that glisten in the sun is amazing. It should be a hard coat on the outside with a soft undercoat.
Warning: Samoyeds are not guard dogs! But excellent watch dogs. Samoyeds eat, sleep and breathe for children and are gentle to every living creature on earth including cats, other dogs and people from Birth to 92!
If you are planning to introduce a new pet Samoyed into your home, indulge yourself for a moment. The last thing you want is a disruption even if it is a new puppy!
In business, we say the most important element to a successful business is "location", "location", "location". When purchasing a Samoyed you want "Temperament", Temperament, and Temperament!
First, you are attracted to the beauty of a White Magic Samoyed, and then come that second important quality, the Temperament. These important characteristic's White Magic Samoyed puppies possess!
Samoyeds can and do fit into every lifestyle you can imagine. They live in the suburban, big Cities like NY City in Manhattan where they live in apartments, the countryside, and even on boats! What appears to be a large dog is actually a medium size dog ranging from 36 to 55 lbs. in the females and 50 to 75 lbs. in the boys. They appear big due to their beautiful coats, big bone structure and long beautiful necks.
If you live an active life, your Samoyed will live an active life, if you sled, they will sled, if you hike, they will hike, if you like to watch movies, they will watch movies, if you like to work and play on the computer, well, they will play with themselves! They are quite entertaining and love to love you. It is quite simple actually. The Samoyed was truly bred as a companion dog to love and care for you the best possible way they can, and they deserve all of that back from us in the best way that we can.
White Magic Samoyeds is the name of my breeding program/kennel, but over many devoted years of breeding, we have a certain type and style of Samoyed that you could literally call a brand of Samoyed. It takes just one look to recognize a Samoyed bred by White Magic Samoyeds. The characteristics of my White Magic Samoyed breeding program are obvious and should take your breath away! You will see when looking at other Samoyeds bred from different kennels they will have a different style and look as we breeders call, "Breed Type". Surf the web and see for yourself.
The doodle is a must groom dog like the poodle, the Samoyed is a must brush or blow out as I say dog! Doodles grow hair from their muzzles to between their toes, and unfortunately if they are not clipped short on their muzzles, the hair gets wet around their mouths and gets moldy and smelly and even causes their teeth to need dental cleanings often! Where the Samoyed has no hair growing from their mouth, thus clean teeth and no mildew smell. Samoyeds ears are up, thus rarely every needing any ear care, where the doodles unfortunately need the ears cleaned and hair pulled in order to keep them from getting infections and also to keep the odor down that occurs from not being able to breath like A Samoyed ear does. With a little proper training on how to hold a dryer, a garage or room to keep the blowing hair contained or some fresh out doors for the birds to enjoy building nests with your Samoyeds hair and you are good to go! Of course you can find yourself a groomer, who is NOT going to put your Samoyed in a cage dryer, as an untrained groomer will and then pick up the phone to call you and tell you that your Samoyed who was not matted when you dropped him off to be groomed, is now matted to the skin and they must shave him off! That is a story I hear way too much, and should be avoided if your Samoyed is taken to a groomer who knows how to groom a double coated dog. I would rather groom a Samoyed any day over a doodle or Standard Poodle, and the cost is the same or less.
Is the Samoyed a guard dog? NO, but they are quite good watchdogs as again they love to watch over you and their home. I fear if I was ever robbed, my Sam's would show the burglar where everything is, but their impressive size would scare off even the experienced robber from wanting to enter your home.
The Samoyed is hypo allergenic, for those of you who have allergies, odorless, and they are gentle for the young and old. They make amazing Therapy dogs and they eat sleep and breathe for children. Yes, they do have big coats, but so do the golden retriever, the poodle and the all too popular DOODLE!
They are smart, not always easy to train due to being smarter than us! I highly recommend for those new Samoyed Families to read and understand Cesar Millan's way of training and working with your dog. I am absolutely on the same page and theory of Cesar and his amazing way of putting things in easy Layman's terms.
