Timberhaus Whitney/Lord Pairing
Hey all!

I'm new to posting, but not new to the board. I'm just a lifelong forum lurker, lol. I'm currently thinking of putting a deposit down on the upcoming Whitney/Lord litter at Timberhaus, and was wondering if anyone here adopted from their previous litter. I'm looking, first and foremost, for a companion. I have no schutzund plans, but will be doing obedience and possibly agility. Jill has been great in our correspondences so far, I'm just looking for some outside opinions.

(actually, Timberhaus was the old name, it's Waldkonig now)

Jill is one of my breeding/Gshep raising mentors. Actually, she is the one who I consider to be the best of the working line/import breeders in this area, and she's a great friend. I can't speak more highly of her and what she creates. Sound temperaments, trainability, confidence, devotion, just amazing dogs. You really can't go wrong, especially with a Lord pup. If there's an open window to reserve one, TAKE IT!

Another Lord litter <3

Christine Kemper (Blackthorn) has a litter due by him at the end of the month. I so wish I could have one (I love the bitch she bred to him).

love the dogs she has --
have a lot of those genetics myself . Lord has Don Clausberg , one of the reasons I brought in an Iwan Poppitz daughter -- maintains a valuable herding line .
They have Dino Schaferliesel - I have a daughter of Duke , who was said to be more 'brut' meaning rough and tough versus the sheer handsome elegant Duke .
I had a son of Dargo .

I know these lines , use them. I would have confidence in the genetics and in the breeder , love her philosophy TimberHaus K-9 About Us&Services

Thanks for the responses, guys! And, von Bolen, I don't know how I didn't notice that everything except the website name was now Waldkonig. Thanks for that!

I have a dog from Timberhaus/Waldkonig. Mine is now almost 5 years old and from a different breeding [Lux v. Kameruner Eck x Casey vd Waldkonig (a Sven v. Grafental x Saskia v. Schaferliesel daughter)] so I have no direct insight into the particular breeding you are inquiring about. However, I will say that Jill was knowledgeable, very nice, accessible (via email and phone), and responsive (both before and after I received my dog). I live several states away and had my dog shipped as a pup without having met Jill or the parents of my dog in person. I felt comfortable doing so based upon my communications with Jill, and everything was as represented and went according to plan. In sum, I count my experience in getting a dog from Timberhaus/Waldkonig as a positive one.

Thanks for you insight, jmdjack! Jill has been wonderful with me so far, and I'll consider myself lucky if I can get one of her pups!:D

I have heard nothing but great things about Jill! For my pup it was down between Schraderhaus and Jill. They co-own several studs and work together quite closely. I believe Jean from Schraderhaus was a mentor to Jill in the beginning.

Either way I dont think you could go wrong with a dog from her!
