Poof! Just like that, we’ve gone from birth announcement to 9 weeks old!! We have three beautiful girls still waiting for their perfect match. All of our puppies come with health guarantee, CKC issued microchips, complete vaccinations as is age appropriate, deworming, CKC registration, and of course a lot of positive exposure and socialization. If you are interested in applying for one of these beauties please complete our Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire.
Thanks so much to Leshelle at Silver Fox Photography for this fun photo shoot. I hope you’ll agree the results are GORGEOUS!
Black Girl, now called “Que”
Que is big and bold! Lots of confidence and drives. She would suit a sport/working home, or an active/experienced companion home.
Blue Girl, still deciding on her perfect name!
Baby Boo has been our littlest from the start, but you won’t know that by looking at her now, or by her demeanour. She is bold and beautiful. Confidence galore! Blue would suit a sport/working home, or an active/experienced companion home.
Green Girl, now called “Quest”
From day one Quest has been our investigator. She would climb high up on Nevr’s side, always going over instead of around. She is sassy, outgoing, and a wee bit independent. The world is her oyster. She would suit a sport/working home, or an active/experienced companion home.
The rest of the Q’s.
We are very pleased with our selections for the remaining Q’s.
In birth order: Purple Boy is named Quinto. He is being trained as a dual purpose dog, drug detection and protection. Green Boy is named Quake. He is in an active, loving family home in charge of neighbourhood watch and his three young girls. Purple Girl is named Quigley. She is being trained for the sport of IGP. Red Boy is named Quincy, but called Danté. He is being trained for the sport of IGP. Red Girl is named Qira. She is in an active home and will be personal trainer to her uncle Leon. Black Boy is named Q-Tyr, called Tyr in honour of Canada’s first Giant Schnauzer Police Service Dog. He is also in charge of three young girls in his household.
We are looking forward to interacting with our families and watching another generation of Von Der Leidenschaft Giants grow up.
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.
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.
