September 2022 News!

It’s been quite some time since I was excited to write anything on our website; 2021 was an extremely trying year.

That said, apparently the products of that year are beginning to come into their own.

Of course, I’m referencing puppies.

At a mere 16 months old, the first of our O-litter puppies achieved her BH. First born female, Purple Girl at birth, registered Onyx von der Leidenschaft, call name Xena, with handler (owned and trained by) Tom Zinn competed at the Saugeen Schutzhund Club of Ontario on September 18th, 2022.

Tom knew before he even got Xena, not only his goals, but where he would be training her. Working K9 in Ontario offers police and military training with obedience at the core of their program. Tom took the applications he learned there and tempered them towards his goals of competing in the sport of IGP.

GSSCC Judge, Jim Crisp told Tom they lost a few points for Xena’s bouncing during heeling but commented on her being such a happy puppy. If you’re going to lose points, happy is the best way!

Fall trial season is underway, and we hope to announce more titles in the coming weeks.

Onyx von der Leidenschaft is out of Khira von der Leidenschaft, sired by Zeus vom Goldbergsee. The pedigree includes many prominent dogs in the sport and in civil working applications around the world.

We’re proud of our lines, and the amazing owners we trust our puppies to. Thanks Tom and Jessica Zinn for being part of our “family.”
