VD-Henry Marcona ZVV3, IGP3, IFH2, KKL1 is a balanced dog with a high willingness to please; he has good retrieve drives and is a dominant male. Henry is very confident and possesses strong natural defense drives. Along with this, he also has a very affectionate nature and loves his handler. With these desirable traits and under the training and handling of Antonín Hanzal, Henry has excelled in his work. By the young age of 3 years old Henry achieved both his IGP3, ZVV3, & IFH2 titles! Henry is doing an amazing job of carrying on the family working legacy!

 

We are extremely excited for the opportunity to have Henry Marcona puppies produced here in the U.S. We are expecting nothing but exceptional offspring from this exceptional GSD!

v-arek von der wedeme BH, IPO3, ad, KKL

"Arek is a large male showing super drives for work and a willingness to work for his handler.  He shows strong ball and medium food drive.  His hunt drives are very nice.  His favorite part of the work is protection where he shows a full and firm grip and desires to fight the decoy.  Arek is social, clear headed, and great with kids and other dogs..."  "Arek is a great asset to our program to have balance in drives and temperament. Arek is always happy" (Weberhaus German Shepherds). Owner, Malinda Weber, said that Arek is the type of dog that thinks everyone is there to especially see him.

SG-LANZO VAN ARne'S HOEVE AD, BH, IPO3, MR1, KKL

Lanzo Van Arne’s Hoeve is described by Brian Aghajani (Trainer, Author, & Photographer) as follows: 

 

"Lanzo Van Arne's Hoeve, MR1, IPO3, SG KKL is the Bo Jackson of Working Dog Sports. Bo Jackson is the only athlete in history to be named an All-Star in both baseball and football, and one of few to do so in two major sports.


Lanzo arguably did the equivalent in the world of dog sports by competing at nationals in both IGP (IPO) and Mondioring. In November 2017, Lanzo earned 6th place with 89/93/90 272 P at the USCA IPO Nationals. This by itself is an incredible accomplishment. But owner Samantha Barnes had the goal of also competing at the Mondioring Nationals. The GSD breed does not commonly compete in Mondioring, Malinois have an advantage due to being lighter and quicker. But Lanzo has an advantage over most GSDs, as he is compact and Malinois like quick. It took 12 months for them to make it happen. Lanzo is a son of Quardes von Der Staatsmache, who has sired Debby vom Eisernen Kreuz, the 2017 WUSV World Champion, as well as Dexter vom Eisernen Keruez who is a US National Champion. He was handled by Brad Hardin, they were the only alternate breed (non-Malinois) at the 2019 USMRA National Championships. They didn’t just show, they delivered! They took home 2nd Place in Level 1 with 182 points."

Akym haus von der hexe BH

future hopeful stud

Akym haus von der hexe BH

in training for IGP

akym Haus von Der hexe is an import from Slovakia and is a very driven male with huge talent. He shares a strong bond with his handler and is referred to as, "A very special dog" for more reasons than one. Akym is in training for his IGP titles and is progressing in all three phases of Tracking, Obedience, and Protection Work. Where this dog especially shines is in his bite work. Words like: Insane, Wicked, Genetically Engineered Freak, and Crushing Grips all come to mind when describing Akym.

Akym comes from a strong working pedigree with many notable dogs throughout including but absolutely not limited to: V-Dasty Eqidius SVV1, IPO3, the renowned V-Sid vom Haus Pixnar SCHH3 (SG-BSP), FH2, LGA-SIEGER, SG-Aiax von Haus Hartmann SCHH3, IPO3m FH2, (7. WELT CUP FH 2000 CH.), SG-Olex de Valslory 4x BSP, 3x LGA, 3x LG-FCI,Q, SCHH3, IPO3, SG-Zender vom Lusondai WUSV, SCHH3, IWR3, GHP3, IPO3, and more. Not to mention Akym is line-bred 5 - 4 on V-Yoschy von der Dollenwiese (BSP & V-LGA) SCHH3 adding a little icing to this already LOADED pedigree.

Akym and his trainer/handler, Mr. Mike Rickman, are in the process of working on adding titles to their resume. We have been nothing but IMPRESSED with what we have seen from Akym FIRST HAND. Akym is so constantly fixed on his trainer/handler that getting him to even glance "your" way would be a great accomplishment. The routine always starts by them being face-to-face (see pictures below) with each other and then their work begins. We LOVE this strong bond and Akym's exceptional temperament.

As a side note: Akym's call name is "Myka." Can anyone guess how he got this name?...:).
