And then there were TWO!

Two females are being reserved for performance homes due to their high drives and strong personalities.

Purple Girl at 6 weeks. Reserved for working or sport home.
Blue Girl at 6 weeks. Reserved for a working or sport home.

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

M-litter – 6 wonderful weeks old!

Gulp! I can’t believe in just two more weeks almost all of these beauties will be heading to their new homes! We are still determining which pup will go where. There are a lot of amazing drives, and definitely some dominant attitudes in this litter, so it’s really important for us to get it right!

Below, in birth order are a couple of photos of each pup (taken with cell phone) and current weights as of today. I will hold off on commenting about their personalities for now as these are so far just observations in the litter, not as individuals. I know you’re all excited to find out which one is yours, but it’s still too soon to tell.

February, the month of Love. Puppy Love!

M-litter at 3 weeks.

The M-litter kids are 3.5 weeks old and growing like crazy! Yesterday they had their first taste of puppy mush, which is simply softened puppy kibble enriched with a powdered puppy formula, plus some hot water to warm it up.

Unfortunately, my website software doesn’t allow me to upload the video directly, so I hope you’ll click on the link to see how they enjoyed it! Today they will have two feedings of mush, plus Mom’s milk. They will work up to 4 feedings per day, with their bed time snack becoming dry kibble by the time they’re 7 weeks. By the time they’re ready for their new homes, they are quite capable of eating dry kibble.

We are still screening applicants for the remaining three puppies. We’re not sure if it’s going to be three females or two females and one male. One applicant is more interested in drive over gender. So it’s too soon to tell yet. If you’re interested in a puppy from this or future litters, please complete our online Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire

The M-litter with their first ID collars.

I try to keep this website upbeat and positive, but life is messy and sometimes bad things happen. The emotions in the early days of a litter are high; fed by exhaustion, aching muscles from hours of lying on the floor, sitting cross legged, doing puppy shakedowns, running at every little squeak or squeal, and making sure every puppy gets on the nipples.
Last year I was having an emotional moment and wrote a post on Facebook. I liked it a lot. I won’t post it here, in case you’re the kind of person who isn’t keen on emotional stuff. Instead I’ll attach the link to the original post, you can click on it or not.
This Box

Yesterday was one of those days when bad things happen. I wrote a longer post. A catharsis. I thought about my first post all day, sorting through what was important about the events of the day and how I felt about it. It never comes out the way I want when I actually put it down in text, but in the end, I was pretty pleased with the result. Should you wish to read it, you can find it here.
This Box Revised

For those interested in a pup, at this time we have reserved all the males, with a waiting list, and we have one female reserved. There is a great deal of interest in this litter, it’s potentially the last time for this combination. If you’re serious, I wouldn’t wait to contact us.

M-Litter von der Leidenschaft! Born January 16, ’20 ~ 6 males, 4 females.

Two days early, but we managed to pull together to get ‘er done! 🙂
Beginning early evening on Thursday, January 16, 2020 in to late afternoon on Friday, Momma Rogue delivered us a beautiful litter of 10. Six males and four females are all doing well after a full 24 hours.

This is a three-peat of our wonderful K & L-litters. Offspring from those two litters are already earning titles in working sports, including a few BH (temperament/obedience) titles and some advanced tracking titles. At least one of the K-litter will be competing in IGP1 (formerly Schutzhund and IPO) this winter.
One of the L-litter is training in police work, specializing in bomb detection.

This combination has also produced some of the most amazing companions/family guardians for singles, couples, and families. The feedback we get from our buyers assures us, our breeding program is definitely on the right track.

There is a great deal of interest in this litter already, we are in the early stages of screening, and securing homes right now. Some are return buyers, pre-approved, and some are trusted friends known for many years. A few are new to us with background in police and k9 work. We have not promised the entire litter yet, but we are reserving some pups for those who’ve expressed interest in the recent past.

Temperament and drives are the deciding factors when selecting homes for any of our litters. If you’re on the reserve list it’s because we need to see (in the coming weeks) if any of this litter will be suitable for your needs. It doesn’t benefit anyone (least of all the puppy) if we can’t make a good match for your wants/needs. Please be patient with us as we make that determination.

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Three 5-month old pups still available.

Lazer, Leia, and Loca complete with nicknames 😉 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.

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
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.
