May-June 2019 News!

The end of May and the first few days of June have been a busy time for our canine pack! We are pleased all the news is HAPPY! ๐Ÿ™‚

On May 27, 2019 we took our youngsters to see world renowned Ophthalmologist Dr. Cheryl Cullen for their CAER (Companion Animal Eye Registry) eye exams. Khira von der Leidenschaft (co-owned with Stephen and Alyssa Lanyi), Zia vom Lindelbrunn, and Zeus vom Goldbergsee all received CEAR certification. This is one more step cleared for inclusion in our future breeding program.

On June 1, 2019 after a sudden inquiry of the puppies, we determined a suitable home for our princess Leia. She has gone off to be a loving companion and home protection dog for a couple in Nova Scotia. We are happy with the match, and wish her the best life! <3

And last but certainly not least of this month so far, our boy Glock von der Leidenschaft IPO3 celebrates his 10th birthday today! We wish his siblings who are still with us, a very happy 10th birthday, and remember those who have crossed the Bridge.

Still available from our L-litter are:
Loca von der Leidenschaft – sport/working home only
Lazer von der Leidenschaft – preference is sport/working home or experienced active home.

There is still a lot of June left, so stay tuned for more news coming soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Obedience Classes Starting Soon!

Ron Murray will be starting classes in both Fredericton and Oromocto, beginning Tuesday, May 14th and Thursday, May 16th.

These six-week courses are Level 1 obedience, and for all dogs aged 5 months and up.
The basic premise of Ronโ€™s program is respect based obedience, followed immediately by verbal and physical praise when the exercise is done correctly. Ron has never been one to use gadgets, gimmicks or food, believing instead that one always has a voice to speak with and hands to pat with.

Please contact Ron directly at (506) 260-2015, either call or text, or you can LIKE and message him on Facebook.

Three 5-month old pups still available.

Lazer, Leia, and Loca complete with nicknames ๐Ÿ˜‰ are still waiting for their forever homes.

These three pups are fully vaccinated, microchipped, registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, are fully crate trained, and house socialized. They are started in tracking, obstacle training, dumbbell work, and prey bite work. Their teething process is almost done so more bite training will commence in the coming days.

They all have great personalities, and high levels of confidence and environmental soundness. No weak nerves here!

This litter, along with their older K-litter siblings, are CLEAR of DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy) by parentage as confirmed by DNA tests through the OFA.

If you’re interested in one of these older pups, or a future litter, please complete our Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire.

His crate training is well underway and he is happy to eat his meals in it, and settle down quickly for the night.

March 2019 News ~ Brag Alert!

Congratulations to our 15 month old puppy, Kwest von der Leidenschaft BH, FH-V!! So grateful to her humans, Ted and Lani Cooper for the amazing effort they’ve put forth in her training. Lani and Kwest have only been training together for 9 months! What a great team!

For those not familiar with our sport, IGP (formerly known as IPO or Schutzhund) 15 months is the minimum age a dog can enter competition. Kwest was JUST 15 months at the end of February.
The BH title is the gateway to the sport of IGP, no dog can compete in anything further without first achieving the BH. The actual title is “Begliethundeprufung” and it translates to “Companion examination”. It is an examination of the dog’s stability of nerve and temperament, basic on and off leash obedience, and a traffic test which includes exposure to vehicles, bicycles, joggers, crowds, and many other distractions.
Lani and Kwest achieved this title at a trial in El Paso, Texas on March 22, 2019.


The next day they attempted and achieved the FH-V title, a tracking title, in very tough conditions! Not just dirt, but dirt freshly spread with manure! Of the five stand alone Tracking titles only Kwest and one other were successful!
The FH-V track is the same length as an IGP 3 track! It is 600 paces long, and aged at least ninety minutes. There is no cross track at this level, but there are 5 legs, with the last turn being an acute angle. This track is laid by the handler and uses the handlers own articles. By the time Kwest and Lani got to their track, it was 2 hours old under a hot sun!

GIANT Congratulations on a job well done! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚

Featuring Lexi von der Leidenschaft

14 week old Lexi, aka Blue Girl, has some serious drives and a little a$$titude, and yet, she is a dream to work with. The siblings have made a game out of removing her collar, it’s happened twice, so we’ve gone with a different style collar now. Each time we need to put it on, she sits so calmly. She’s very responsive and will be reserved for a sport/competition home.
Sorry to post so many photos, but she’s just THAT good! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Video is readily available on Instagram @leidenschaftkennels
or on our Facebook page!

Lexi also has two sisters and a brother available to approved homes.
These pups have had 2nd vaccinations and kennel cough. They are beginning crate training and house socialization as well as daily adventures outdoors. They are ready to go.

It’s been a busy weekend here with finalizing new homes for Loch, and Leonidas, and getting Lego ready for his journey. All three pups left this weekend leaving us with 3 boysย going to their new homesย in March. We still have one boy and three girls available to approved homes.

 

 

The pups have all been named now, and we are watching their little temperaments daily to determine what the best possible environment will be for each one.

Still available are:

Lazer – Purple Boy

Locaย – Green Girl

Lexiย – Blue Girl

Leiaย – Black Girl

All of these pups are confident, outgoing, and busy! Some of them have a wee bit more a$$titude than others, so that will factor in to where they go as well. Now that we’re down in numbers, and I’m somewhat on the mend from the broken ankle, Ron and I will begin crate training at bedtime, and house breaking, socializing, and learning a few manners.

The pups are 11 weeks old today, February 23.

If you’re interested in being considered for a puppy, please do send in a questionnaire!
