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! πŸ˜‰
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.

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.

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! πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸ₯‚

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! πŸ˜‰ 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.
