No rest for the wicked! The Prince Edward Island Schutzhund Club trial was almost TWO weeks ago, and I’m just now getting to website updates! *sigh
Regardless, GIANT congratulations to Lisa Gaudet and her Leidenschaft kids, Khaos and Lunatik,earning their BH/VT titles with the GSSCC (German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada) in PEI on November 7th and 8th, 2020. Khaos already achieved his BH with the DVG in 2019, but in order to compete further with Lisa’s home club in PEI, he had to redo the title.
A little background; Khaos was purchased at the age of four months as a companion dog, and possibly a therapy dog to enhance Lisa’s work as a nurse practitioner specializing in senior care. When Lisa realized he had a little too much drive for that, she got involved in the sport. Once in, she was hooked, and less than a year later, she was back for another puppy.
Lisa participates in the sport both in her home province of PEI with the PEISC (GSSCC) and regularly with our club in NB, The Sirius Working Dog Association. Lisa is currently apprenticing as Training Director with The SWDA as well. She’s an enthusiastic trainer who loves to share her knowledge and experience to new members. Thanks Lisa for representing our breeding program, and this sport so well!
Confirmed by ultrasound, our N-litter is due September 8, 2020!
We are excited to announce our repeat litter with our German import Rogue vom Klingsgarten IGP1, IFH-V and our own Glock von der Leidenschaft IPO3. Previous litters from this pair are well on their way to proving superior working drives with both sport and civil achievements.
With the amount of interest in this litter, it’s pretty much PRE-SOLD, that said, many people are still dealing with the challenges of Covid-19 and some may opt to wait for a future litter. We are always accepting applications via our Potential Puppy Owner Questionnaire so feel free to let us know of your interest in this or future litters.
We are pleased to announce Officer Hearne and K9 LeKarter have certified as a team in Explosives Detection. Special thanks to their trainer Tracy Landis and the crew at Ultimate Working Dogs for taking our puppy through this professional program and creating a great team for law enforcement. We hope they enjoy a long and safe career!
LeKarter is one of the puppies from our L-litter from Glock von der Leidenschaft IPO3 and Rogue vom Klingsgarten IGP1, IGP-FHV. Giant Schnauzers are renowned in Europe as police service dogs, and are slowly becoming recognized in North America as a great multipurpose police K9. This is just the beginning for Office Hearne and K9 LeKarter! So Proud! 😀
