Our first Bouviers were Arko vd Witteveenseven and Bianca. Both were Schutzhund III. With these two dogs we also began breeding. Out of this breeding came Annabel, mother of many good working dogs in Germany. An example is Cayenne vd Pappelranch.The next litter was Arko and Anouska vd Driesneetjes. Out of this came our Beau and next Arko. We titled these two dogs to Schutzhund III and F.H.We bred Beau to Marshall vd Stadt Homberg and from this breeding came Bram.Bram took IPO I, II, and III titles by the age of two years and competed to 8 years of age. She was winner of IPO I, II, III Dutch Championships.We still have three females out of her old line and they all show the same temperament and working spirit that she had.
We started working Malinois in 1985. We started up with Arra v Runderland, titled her to I.P.O. III, and bred her to Rudy K.N.P.V. Blitz came out I.P.O. III. We bred Blitz to different males and kept Nano I.P.O. III, and Pele
and Paco BH, both almost ready
for I.P.O. I.
So as you see we work our females and keep young dogs out of them to build up a strong line for working. Our goal is to have a good working and conformation dog, because is that not what we all want? For example we had Hurricane Jane as a puppy she turned out to be the conformation Working Champion of the Netherlands. We were very proud of the work Lous did with her and we were very sad that she died a few months ago.We also compliment Phillip Safriet with the good work he has done with Khan Bram Casa de Mandingo's,
Sch H III, in the U.S.A. Kahn was high scoring dog overall at the 1996 AWDF Championships. Kahn also took fifth place in the USA North American Schutzhund III and FH Championships. There score of 99-90-92 = 281 was only 4 points less than the top three dogs. Phillip and Khan also received the award for being the highest scoring owner-handler trained team in the competition! With Phillip's wife, Vickie, Kahn won the 1999 North American Working Bouvier Championship in Virginia with High Scoring Schutzhund III.
