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! 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.

Rogue LOVES to play with her puppies. Many females are DONE with them by this stage. lol
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!

Kora 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 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.
Kacey is a determined puppy, and will require a structured environment.
Kacey is well behaved in our home, crate trained, and travels well in the vehicle.
