Lexi is SOLD!!

We are happy to announce our girl Lexi von der Leidenschaft, aka Blue Girl is heading to Manitoba in April. We’re excited for the adventures she will have.

Still available are brother Lazer, and sisters Leia, and Loca.

Featuring Lazer von der Leidenschaft!

15 week old Lazer, aka Purple Boy, is a happy, outgoing puppy with excellent confidence and prey drive! He is happy to play tug with plush toys, jute sacks, and old cuffs. Or, he’ll take you by the leg or arm if that’s all that’s available! 😉
His crate training is well underway and he is happy to eat his meals in it, and settle down quickly for the night.
Lazer is a good sized pup with plenty of coat and a nice ear set. He’s very responsive and will suit a sport/competition home or an active family.
Video is readily available on Instagram @leidenschaftkennels
or on our Facebook page!

Lazer also has two sisters (Lexi is SOLD) to approved homes.
These pups have had kennel cough and will have their 3rd boosters and their rabies vaccinations next week. They are beginning crate training and house socialization as well as daily adventures outdoors. They are ready to go.

Please complete our online Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire to be considered for one of our L-litter kids.

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! 😉 Video is readily available on Instagram @leidenschaftkennels

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.

Featuring Leia von der Leidenschaft

12 week old (Princess) Leia, aka Black Girl, is a wonderful combination of sweet and sassy! This girl has loads of confidence and drives, and is also a lover. She will suit a sport/competition home, or an active family who will keep her busy and challenge her natural curiosity and enthusiasm.

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 boys going to their new homes 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

Loca – Green Girl

Lexi – Blue Girl

Leia – 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!



A Spotlight on Kricket von der Leidenschaft!

Kricket started out as a “sleeper” puppy. We didn’t quite know how to classify her. Well she is now showing us she has WORKING DRIVES! She is thorough in tracking, confident in obedience and agility, and FIERCE in her bitework!
Kricket has a lean athletic build which will suit any type of sport or working application. kricketforweb
She is available to an experience working/sport home only. You can see more photos and details about Kricket at her profile on Working Dog! Click the link below.

A Spotlight on Kora von der Leidenschaft

I could always tell Kora from the rest because she would ALWAYS leave the food dish to come get some lovin’s. She was the most affectionate puppy of all. And while she’s still very affectionate, she’s also showing us some great drives and terrific confidence.

 

 

Photos below show her driving to, retrieving, and returning with the dumbbell!

Kacey von der Leidenschaft

This spirited girl has confidence galore! She’s funny, loving, and very busy, and she will need a family committed to keeping up to her. (Clicking on the photos produces larger images. Some shots are blurry, the nature of candid, moving puppy photos!) 😉

Kacey von der Leidenschaft

Kacey is a high energy pup with great ball and prey drives. She is sassy in attitude, but not mean or dominant. She’s athletic in build, and loves to engage her littermates in games of “keep-away”.

Kacey’s energy and enthusiasm is perfect for a competition home, be it agility, flyball, or the sport of IPO, this girl has amazing potential.

K-Kids are 11 weeks old! Puppies still available!

Yes we still have TEN puppies in our care! If you don’t think it’s a busy life, come on out for a visit! 😉

Of the ten, we still have seven females and one male available to approved homes. Why do we still have so many at 11 weeks old? I have a few theories.

1) It’s been 5.5 years since we bred a litter (not for lack of trying!) and many of our followers have moved on, or moved to other breeds! I know, I don’t get it either!

2) It’s WINTER!!! Puppies are more work in the winter! Yeah, tell us about it! But, after a 5.5 year absence, and Glock being 8 years young, we felt it was mating we couldn’t pass up.

3) We’re fussy about our forever homes. Believe me, I’ve turned down dozens already.

4) We had such a large number of females (both males were spoken for, one fell through) and of course, it never fails people want what you don’t have!

Puppy registration papers are going in the mail today, so their registered names are set in stone. You can call them what you wish should you choose one of these wonderful characters. I’m going to group them by temperament. I don’t have current photos, will try to get some this weekend. They are harder to wrangle as their confidence grows! I do have some video clips taken earlier this week. See the links below.

Schnowballs and Schnauzers!

A Mild Winter Day!

I have three categories these pups will fit in; Working Homes, Ambitious Homes, Companion Homes. Some of these pups could overlap, so my list could change as their personalities and experiences further develop.

Working Homes – Pups with strong drive and ATTITUDE!
These puppies will need a job to do, be it a sport like IPO, or a job in police service, search and rescue, etc. These puppies have strong drives and dominance in the pack.

Black Girl – now named Khira
Strong attitude, dominant in the litter. Great drives.

White Girl – now named Kwest
Large female, great drives, independent nature, always out in front.

 

Ambitious Homes – Pups with lots of confidence and drives!
These puppies are busy, confident, fun, and loving. Not quite a schnuggle bug because they bring a little more sass to the game. These puppies will make excellent sport dogs, but could also be conditioned to more calm activities such as therapy work, assistance dogs, etc. I do not rule out companion homes for these puppies, as I said, some can fit either category, but these ones will require an experienced and patient home.

Purple Girl – now named Kacey (Miss Racey)
Smaller female with sass galore! Kacey is always looking to lure her siblings in a game. She would love to have a canine companion in her new pack!

Green Girl – now named Kaper
Very similar in temperament to Kacey, but perhaps I tiny bit more independent. She also loves to hang out with the older dogs, so would be a good match for a home with a dog already present.

Purple Boy – now named Khaos
Another pup with great drives and confidence. Khaos would be an excellent choice for somebody new to dog sport or an active outdoors person. This boy loves to go on adventures!

 

Companion Homes – Pups with a little more laid back attitude!
These puppies are the love bugs of the pack. But don’t let that fool you in to thinking they are pushovers. They are just a little more calm than their littermates and best choices for people who imagine a more laid back companion.

Red Girl – now named Kree
This beauty is probably the calmest pup of the litter. Nothing fazes her. This puppy would be a great hospital visitor for somebody interested in volunteering, or with correct training, an assistance dog.

Pink Girl – now named Kricket
This pup is spirited and loving. She would be a great choice for an active family with children, or another dog.

Yellow Girl – now named Kora
This puppy is super affectionate. She is the only puppy in the litter who will leave her food dish for a schnuggle! She’s a larger female who would be a great match for someone wanting a cuddler.

Puppy Questionnaires are being vetted every day. Please complete one if you’d like to be considered for one of these beauties.



A Great Adventure with the K-kids!

Puppies are a LOT of work, and 10 puppies are TEN TIMES the work! But, if we’re to put quality working dogs out in the world, the work has to be done. They need constant stimuli and confidence building experiences.

We are blessed to own 13.5 acres of private land with our home at one end, and a beautiful forest with a blazed trail up to our 2 acre groomed training field at the other end. The only thing missing is a building for all season training! Perhaps, one day.

Today was a milder than normal day for us in NB, so a perfect opportunity to get the pack (minus Blue Boy aka Knox) for a long stretch of their legs. Dad led the pack while I brought up the rear, having to retrieve stragglers multiple times. Once we got to the field everyone had a good run. We made our way to the top of the field where the obstacle course is, and the pack checked out multiple tunnels, a low beam, the A-frame, and a game of “chase me, I’ve stolen a pylon.”

Some of these “kids” are already spoken for; we’re holding some for new owner scheduling, one for import regulations, and others we’re just TRYING to figure out shipping arrangements. GAH!!! Airlines, could you help a breeder out some? 🙁

However, the puppies who remain yet to be spoken for, need the work if they’re to be good dogs rather than problems. This is why our prices go UP, not down the longer they’re with us. You will get a quality puppy with exposure to lots of positive experiences and people.

A link to the album with photos and videos of today’s GREAT ADVENTURE is HERE! Please share with people who love puppies, working dogs, dogs in general. 🙂 Thanks!
