Puppies Available Week of September 5, 2016

Greetings everyone!  We are close to making final show-prospect decisions and will know more soon about companion home availability on 2 beautiful litters here now.

Litter #1;  07/07/16.  Bronze Grand Champion Storm de Legeane x Grand Champion Heartstrings Margaret.  Both Sire and Dam have won all the way up to and competed in the Best in Show ring (Ukc).  Storm is our import from the Netherlands, Westminster Invite and 2x recipient of the DDBSA National Sire of the Year award.  We have not permitted Storm to be used outside of our program and in two litters he has sired 6 conformation champions and numerous obedience-titled Dogues.  In addition to Grand Champion, Margaret has a CGC Title and is Dam of multiple-titled Dogues.

Litter #2; 07/12/16.  Champion Heartstrings Luther x Grand Champion Heartstrings Claire.  Luther is our home-breeding using frozen semen imported from Europe of Multi European Champion Vlempa Bardos.  Luther’s show career is taking off and we expect to see him ranked in the US Top #20 (if not Top #10) when stats are released in September.  Claire is our beautiful girl that graced the cover of USA Today when competing at Westminster in 2014.  She is only points-shy of Bronze Grand Champion.

All health testing is a matter of public record.  You may review the generations of health testing on the OFA website as well as horizontal pedigree testing.

Puppies have completed US Military Super Dog Training Protocol which begins at 3 days.  They will arrive having been fully vetted by a repro specialist, utd on vaccinations, microchipped and health guarantee.  They will also meet “100 strangers” off campus prior to going to new homes/socialization.  Additionally, daily tactile and “experience” exposure including puzzles, noise sensitivity, etc.  We will require a certified CGC course (we will assist you with locating and vetting trainers) and recall we do not sell with breeding rights.

We realize many have been waiting and thank you for your patience if you have previously submitted an application.  If you have not heard from us, please get in touch with us to discuss whether this is good timing.  We are in the process of scheduling a session with a professional photographer and, as a matter of etiquette, will have professional photos available once those already committed have made their selections.

New Grand Champion and S.T.A.R. Puppies

Excited to pass along that Heartstrings has another home-bred Grand Champion!  Mambo, with limited showing, has ticked another Title off his list.  He is also currently ranked in the US Top #10 DDB’s in breed standing at just over 2 years old.

Mambo became a Daddy earlier this year and 2 of his boys earned their S.T.A.R. Puppy Certifications (Soicilization, Training, Activity, Responsibility).  Big congratulations to Moose, Knox and their families.  Knox shown here with his little girl who clearly thinks her puppy is a S.T.A.R.

New Title!

Great start to the week and month!  On Monday August 1, 2016 9 month-old Crash earns his CGC Title – forever recorded in history as an American Kennel Club Titled Dogue.

CGC (Canine Good Citizen) is an obedience title and the team must successfully complete a course consisting of 10 challenges.  Sit, stay, down, a timed 3-minute sit or down-stay whereby the handler walks out of sight, and passing other dogs appropriately are a few of the challenges.

These two have worked and practiced very hard and we are over the moon for them.  No surprise – their instructor tells us they broke the curve, star students in her class and she is encouraging them to continue with a working/performance/conformation career.  Great job Dawn and Crash – you make us so proud!
