About Me
Rising Moon Kennels was established in 2000, in Anne Arundel County, MD.  

My name is Jamaria and I am owner of Rising Moon Kennels. I have been in love with dogs ever since I was a little girl.  I have been researching the American Pit Bull Terrier breed before getting my first one, learning why they have such a bad reputation and what makes the APBT a wonderful dog.  I was determined to show the world, what a true family dog this wonderful breed is and what I can accomplish by owning one.  On October 28, 2000, I fell in love with my first APBT, Delilah.  My passion started with her.  She was my first conformation dog with United Kennel Club (UKC).  About 2 years later, I got my second APBT whom I entered in conformation shows.  From there, I started entering in obedience and rally classes for fun with them and things took off from there.  I have been raising APBT's for over 15 years and have been training dogs for more than 4 years.   All of my pups/dogs are raised indoors were they get lots of love and attention. Being raised inside my home as part of my family, all of my dogs have excellent temperament.  

Since 2012, I have been volunteering my time teaching basic obedience. I have worked with a variety of dogs from large to small breeds and I have participated as a judge in fun matches held by the organization as well as being a judge for their graduation classes.  

I have dedicated the lower level of my home for clients who prefer "in-home boarding" for their pets.  If you are interested, feel free to request a "Meet & Greet" by scheduling an appointment so you can come out to my home, with your pet, and see where he/she will be staying.
