Tervuren Litter Plans Late 2018

If you would like to express an interest in a puppy from me, please complete my pre-reservation form below. Please understand that only a limited number of companion homes will be considered, as my dogs are bred to have jobs. Please be prepared to tell me what jobs your puppy will have, and your experience in providing that job.

Working Litter 2018

This litter is my second opportunity to breed from Savannah's offspring, and my first opportunity to breed Radha. From this litter, I expect a high level of intensity for toy drive, exceptional work ethic, and a range for type, size, coat and outward social reach. Both parents have proven to have high levels of work ethic, heat tolerance, stamina, and biddability.

Radha is from intervariety lines with Malinois, Groenendael and Tervuren, and 50% protection/working lines, and 50% sport/show lines. Her sire is the esteemed Chac Mool C av Nangijala, who himself was part of the Swedish working dog program, and was a champion in search even at 11 years of age. Radha is a softer dog, but not lacking in social confidence, drive or work ethic. Her IPWDA SAR test was a double blind test well over 1.5 miles long, and under difficult terrain and conditions. She successfully trails in both urban and wilderness environments. Radha's siblings compete successfully in IPO, obedience and agility. Radha's mother is from successful ring sport lines, including her great grandfather, the magnificent Orsam de Salte Cabre, MR3, FR3. Orsam was Fr.Ring III, selectif 2003 & 2004, Finalist 2003. Mondioring III, selectif 2005, Finalist in september 2005 - he was the first Groenendael in 25 years to achieve this. Kristine Vinje of Nanduhria Kennels in Norway spoke of him with me, saying "He is just extraordinary! Well balanced with a super social temperament, fantastic working abilities and very strong nerves." Radha's OFA clearances (hips, elbows, eyes, thyroid) are pending. She has normal eyes, and will be tested again before breeding. (Eye exams should be conducted annually).

Brodie is deployed through Lake County SAR in Oregon with his co-owner Gail Collins. He has deployed for numerous searches with resulting finds. He is a thinking dog, very strong willed, which creates some challenge in training, but has resulted in a dog that will work through most any conditions, obstructions, and discomfort. He is dedicated to his handler and his toy, and works independently. He demonstrates appropriate intelligent disobedience in his obedience to odor, and an excessive desire to work.

From a social perspective, Radha's siblings are lovers of all people, as is Brodie's mother Savannah, and several of his siblings. Brodie's father Gabbit does not seek the attention of others in the robust manner that his mother does, but will introduce himself to people, and is polite and stable in all settings. Gabbit's primary interest is his toy, regardless of who is holding it. Gabbit's focus and stability is excellent, so much so that he has participated in numerous Disc Dog exhibitions and events among large crowds, including minor leage baseball events in large stadiums with on field teams. Like his father, Brodie exhibits exceptional biddability and focus under high distraction, and has participated in numerous parades for SAR, and attended many SAR seminars with novel environments and crowds, in addition to his professional SAR duties.

This litter is a working litter. Only homes with proven experience in SAR, detection, sports (IPO, Ring, high level obedience, skijor, etc) or proven highly active lifestyles will be considered. Agility homes will be considered on a limited and case by case basis. Puppies from this litter will not be considered for therapy or PTSD dogs. Socialization, group obedience classes or other classes/training involving wordly experience and enrichment activites are mandatory, and subject to contract enforcement. I am a breeder that expects to be kept informed. This is also subject to contract enforcement. If you are looking for a puppy without breeder involvement, please look elsewhere.

Show/Sport/Working/Companion Litter 2018

 

Jahnu du Domaine de Vauroux

or

Lucky du Domaine de Vauroux

Basquelaine Aanandi of Intention Hill
(dam of the C Litter of Intention Hill)

BAER +/+ (normal hearing), BT-5877G24F-VPI Hips Good, BT-EL3094F24-VPI Elbows Normal, BT-TH845/49F-VPI Thyroid Normal, Eyes Normal (2015, 2016)

This litter brings together the beautiful stable character of Aanandi and the dogs of Evelynne Monnereau's Domaine de Vauroux kennels. Stud selection will be made after the Nationals this year. Aanandi's first litter from frozen semen delivered four offspring with exceptional character. All four puppies are exceptionally friendly, stable and healthy, and seizure free at two years of age. Aanandi was Reserve Winner's Bitch at the 2013 ABTC National Specialty in her very first show. She is major pointed, and shown occasionally. Aanandi's first litter has two offspring participating in obedience and detection. Her daughter Carmella was recently SAR certified to Water Search, meaning that she works from a boat to locate drowning victims. Carmella, a fawn Tervuren, is also training for land HRD, and will begin competing in Rally and Conformation in 2018. Also from the C litter is Chandravathi, a grey (cream) Tervuren, who was exported to the United Kingdom, to Liz Beaumont, and is in training for SAR and obedience. Littermate Christa is a tall, fawn female and is the service and therapy dog for her owner, and also partipates in the owner's sanctuary duties, helping to raise wolf cubs and small animals. Littermate Cygnus is a grey/creme Tervuren, and trains in Rally and Obedience.

I expect level toplines, good head planes, ample bone, triangular ears, and hope for good shoulder assemblies.

Whether Jahnu or Lucky are used for this litter, I expect strong, happy, stable and friendly characters, but high energy. Lucky will bring more refinement than Jahnu, but the final decision will depend on arrangements for a live cover since I don't wish to perform an AI on Aanandi again. Jahnu's first litter did not produce any grey offspring, though a couple are lighter fawn. Lucky may produce grey.

If you are searching for a calm lapdog, this litter will not produce that. My dogs are bred to perform the intended tasks of the breed, and Jahnu and his first offspring all show exceptional natural herding instincts, high prey drive, and strong minds. Aanandi herself is also a strong female, very focused and devoted, and stable in all environments. Additionally, as described in the standard, I expect that when a play or in the yard, you will see dogs always in motion.

Puppies from this litter will be appropriate for herding, SAR, conformation, obedience, possibly agility, tracking, nosework, possibly IPO. This litter is about 25% working Malinois lines. A limited number of companion homes will be considered. Agility homes will be considered on a limited and case by case basis. Socialization, group obedience classes and enrichment activites are mandatory, and subject to contract enforcement. I am a breeder that expects to be kept informed. This is also subject to contract enforcement. If you are looking for a puppy without breeder involvement, please look elsewhere. References available.
