Welcome to the news page!
Often people will call or email me asking what puppy news is happening or how training is going, what breedings are planned or happening, and so on. I'll try and update this page often so people can follow along to the happenings here at my kennel!
I have an import puppy coming in the next days from Germany out of a BSP female and BSP male. More information will be posted soon!
Below is a picture sent to me from an owner of a young Stuka puppy. Too cute!
Here are some pictures from the helper seminar held at Jeff Lund's club in beautiful Bowling Green, Kentucky.
I will have pictures up on the site from the Helper Seminar performed at Jeff Lunds on November 28, 2009 in the next few days.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Have safe travels and enjoy your time with loved ones!
The website is finally fixed! I hate computers!! haha
This coming Saturday there will be a Helper Seminar at Jeff Lunds in Kentucky. I'll be assisting Lyle Roetemeyer and completing my Teaching Helper certification. If you're looking to attend a helper seminar, this should be a very good one. We'll have a great time and really try to educate and help anyone there. Afterward, some friends and I plan on getting some great training in.
The Stuka x Jenny litter was phenomenal. They are 6 weeks old and will be headed to homes soon. These puppies confirmed that Jenny's next litter will be a repeat to Stuka. They are both such strong dogs and they really threw that into these puppies. Great drives, beautiful conformation, outstanding temperaments. A very nice litter. Here's a couple of pictures of some taken a few days ago:
I have been experiencing problems logging into the website and am working to correct the problem with the server.
Hopefully the problem will be fixed very soon, as there has been a lot of information that unfortunately has not been able to be posted to the site. We are trying to remote this in, hopefully it works. Thank you for your patience!
Stuka x Jenny puppies, few days old.
Stuka x Jenny puppies sleeping with bellies full of momma's milk.
Jenny delivered one male and three females. They are very healthy and active. Momma and puppies are doing very well! I will be contacting owners in the next days...
Jenny has begun having her Stuka puppies! She is doing very well and the puppies are big and healthy! Once a final litter count is known I'll post more information and some pictures of the new arrivals.
I leave for Germany in the morning. We'll attend the Bundessiegerprufung in Donaueschingen and the WUSV in Krefeld. I am looking forward to seeing old friends and their training clubs in Germany, watching the BSP again, and supporting my good friends competing in the 2009 WUSV. During this time, I will be trying to check my email once a day and return messages. If you need anything or have any questions, please email me at the address at the bottom of this page.
This is a Caine x Jenny son we've bought back, Enno von den Sportwaffen. Only 14 months old with serious social aggression and power. Fantastic gripping, fast strikes, completely man oriented, and no nonsense. This is not training. This is raw genetics.
Jenny has been confirmed bred by ultrasound. Soon we will have Stuka x Jenny puppies!
I saw and tested the Caine x Jenny son and purchased him back. This dog has incredibly strong aggression for 14 months. It just needs developed now.
We're done with the Oktoberfest in Indy and had a great time doing the demos for everyone. It really was a big hit and the people really enjoyed watching the dog interact and socialize. We had dogs that were great with children and still did strong bitework, and did many obedience demos. Some with dogs that even took commands from the children and were heeled around by children only a few years old. We also let a couple people from the audience come in and take a bite in a bitesuit from Stuka, which they really enjoyed.
We have been doing schutzhund demos at the Indianapolis Oktoberfest. It has been a great opportunity for us to showcase well bred and well trained German Shepherd Dogs for the crowd. It has been a very big hit and the crowd loves it. We've had everything from young puppies to dogs doing obedience to dogs performing bitework. Then we have dogs that walk through the crowd and socialize with everyone.
The parents are blown away that they and their child can pet a GSD, watch it walk over and do powerful bitework, and then walk back over to be pet more. Although I love this opportunity to get some great PR for the GSD, in some ways it's sad to me that so many of these people have lived their entire lives and never seen a TRUE German Shepherd Dog.
I'll be posting some pictures and video from the event in the next days.
Here are some pictures of a one year old Caine x Jenny son doing some bitework. I am told he is very serious and has excellent gripping.
I have added a page with information on measurements, specs, patterns, layouts, etc., for schutzhund tracking, obedience, wall, jump, etc. You may go to it by clicking here.
I'm very excited to finally add a photo gallery of collections of old working dog photos! I think you'll really enjoy them. You can view them off the main side menu on the website or by clicking the picture below:
Here are some pictures sent to me by a happy owner of a Stuka x Cheyenne puppy just under 6 months old. Looks like he's having fun!
The Stuka x Jenny litter has been listed on the For Sale page.
We have two successful breedings so far between Stuka x Jenny. This will be an exceptional breeding packed with power. We will retain a puppy from this breeding. More info to come soon!
Jenny von der Langerts SchH1 is in heat and will be bred to the always powerful SG1 Stuka vom Enckhausen SchH3, IPO3, FH, Kkl1, HOT. This litter will be linebred 5-4 on the "T" litter von der bosen Nachbarschaft through Timmy over Troll. Jenny herself is linebred 4-4 on Fero. She has exceptional hardness and fight drive and will mix very well with Stuka.
Jenny is a very masculine and powerful female!
As soon as Lorna got her show and koer complete she headed for vacation in Colorado for some hiking. She sent this picture of her and Atze which I think is just beautiful...
We want to congratulate Lorna Thomas for her recent success with Atze! Atze went V rated and Kkl1 under Johannes Grewe! We are very proud of both Lorna and Atze!!! Good job guys!!!
Dan Cox and I enjoying some beer and currywurst with friends in Germany:
Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!
My friend Baum in Germany trialed his powerful male Carlos vom Friedewälder Schloß for 100-93-96=289V !!!! Congratulations my friend. On to the LGA's!
This is an awesome picture of a friend in Ireland having a drink to Sportwaffen K9! Wish I could have been there with you Scotty!
Here's a nice video of an 11 month old SG1 Stuka vom Enckhausen son doing some bitework on me for the first time. It's always nice when a puppy you've bred comes back to visit when they're older. I really enjoy working them, because it gives me a great ability to get hands on with what my kennel is producing.
Stuka has been bred to German import Lana Baumberg SchH1. Lana is an exceptional female and will mix very well with Stuka. More info to come soon!
Nate and Stuka (SG1 Stuka vom Enckhausen SchH3, IPO3, FH, Kkl1, HOT) trialed at O.G. Indianapolis Schutzhund und Polizei June 6, 7, 2009. Stuka did a perfect 100V points in tracking, obedience was a 92, and a 90 in the protection for a total of 282V!!!! Good job Stook!
I will have two puppies and one just under a year old male listed for sale here in the next few days. One puppy is a Stuka vom Enckhausen daughter, and one is a Kutter vom Landesberg son. (He was originally sold to a police department as a police dog prospect but they have never came to pick up the puppy despite numerous attempts to contact them.) The older male is a Stuka vom Enckhausen son started in all three phases of schutzhund. More to come soon!
Stuka was again honorably mentioned a Helper's Favorite Dog after competing at the 2009 AWDF in Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania May 22, 23, and 24th. Good for Stuka!
Here's a sneak peak at our newest addition to our breeding program. More info to come soon!
Here is a photo from the 2009 Mideast Region Helper Training Seminar and Helper Classification hosted by O.G. Buckeye and overseen by:
Jürgen Oster, SV Teaching Helper
Mark Scarberry, Mideast Regional Director, USA Teaching Helper
Nick Blackford, Mideast Regional Training Director, USA Teaching Helper
Nate Harves, Assistant Mideast Regional Director, USA Apprentice Teaching Helper
This is a nice little picture of some puppies from Stuka playing with a jute rag. Very nice behavior for puppies not even 7 weeks old!
I am pleased to announce the purchase of an Olex de Valsory daughter for my breeding program. She is currently bred to a top male and due early June. I will have information listed on her soon.
The puppies from the Kutter x Flower litter are going home this weekend. They are going to a police department, to schutzhund, and to a fire department for SAR/detection.
Training wise, I am working hard on Stuka and Dax. Both have been entered into the 2009 American Working Dog Federation Championship (AWDF). I have been tracking a lot and trying to fine tune some trial behaviors.
I am waiting on pictures to come in from the Helper Seminar held at OG Buckeye May 1, 2, and 3rd. We had a very good turnout and of course Charlie Snyder was there to take the great pics only Charlie can. I'll post some up as soon as they're done.
Here's some pictures of 6 week old puppies from the Kutter x Flower breeding. These puppies are all going to working homes and show very nice temperament and drives.
Here's a picture of 4.5 week old puppies from a breeding Stuka did with an outside female. I'm told that they are very full of themselves and already showing great drive and environmental soundness.
We have a new top sport male here at the kennel, SG Dix z Perstatskeho mlyna ZVV1, IPO3, 2X ÚMCR IPO, CACT, Kkl2. He will be shown and trialed here in the US and can be viewed here.
