SchH 1 “A1” Hips BH AD ZW-74 DNA.



Jill received her “a1” (highest hip rating), AD, BH and SchH . Jill has phenomenal drive and sensitivity. She is wonderful with children. She is powerful young bitch with big bones. Roughly translated here is what the German judges said about Jill in her Koer:

“Medium size, medium strong, very beautiful head, beautiful expression, harmonious structure, firm structure, correct front, sufficient croup, good front angles, straight in the front and rear, free and powerful movement.”

Jill also has a super ZW (Zuchtwert) rating of only 74. The Zuchtwert is also known as “breed value” and signifies the tendency of a dog to improve on the breed in a breeding scheme that have numbers under 100. This is especially important in hip dysplasia in that this low number implies that her progeny will have less chance of inheritable deficiencies. This is an unusually low (therefore good) number at 74.


INKA “Inka vom Pen Din, BH CD”

Inka and Ivy are sired by V1 “Uran vom Moorbeck” making them half sisters to VA2 “Quenn vom Loher Weg”.

Their mother SG “Jill von Pallas Athene” AD Sch H2 CD CGN is a full sister to “Ussci vom Buchonia”. “Ussci” and “Quenn” are the parents of VA 10 “Godalis Tino”.

Inka is currently working towards her BH and Sch H1. Unfortunately Inka had trauma to her left ear as a puppy leaving her with a floppy ear. However this certainly has not affected her working ability and disposition. We are looking forward to future progency.

Inka has received her SchH BH and her CKC CD Titles.


ODESSA “Odessa von Blackgold Pen”

Odessa is a daughter of Jill vom Pallas Athene and V, CH Gerro vom Kirschental SchH1, KKL1. Gerro was imported from the famous Kirschental Kennel in Germany and through him we are bringing the herding working lines in to our kennels.


FLORA “Flora vom Fleischerheim”

CKC and AKC Registered, OVC, OFA Certified.

Flora’s pedigree is a reflection of the “SV” standards where both her parents proved worthy of:

Breed show rating of “V” or “VA”.
Performance titles of Sch H1-3 or equivalent.
Recommended for breeding with a breed survey of KKL la.

Flora’s dam is “V Ulla vom Almhof SchH1a” who is a daughter of VA1 World Seiger “Ursus von Batu”. Ursus is also the sire of 2X World Sieger VA1 Yasko vom Farbenspiel SchH, Kk1 1a.

Flora’s sire is “VA Dux della Valcuvia SchH3, Kkl la”. “Dux” is also the sire of 2X World Vice Sieger Quantum von Arminius SchH3, Kk1 1a and VA Marko della Valcuvia.


ANNA “Reinguards Anastasia V D Krone”

OVC Hips, CGN, CGC, CD, HIC, CKC and AKC Registered.

Anna is the foundation of our breeding. We purchased Anna from Reinguard Kennels and were fortunate enough to be allowed to purchase breeding rights. Henry Reinhardt has now since passed away and we are honoured to be able to continue this breeding line.

Anna received her Companion Dog Title with three straight High in Class as well as receiving her Canine Good Neighbour and Canine Good Citizen Titles.

She has a super disposition and a keen intelligence which she has passed onto her progency, producing excellent working dogs such as our own “LKZ Dylan’s Black Gold” and “Black Gold’s Lacey”.

Anna is a beautiful black and red female and a pleasure to be around.

Anna has been retired and has been placed with a loving family.
