Van den Heuvel k9?
 
I have found a kennel named Van Den Heuvel K9 that has some really great looking dogs. I had emailed them last year and received an email back from Dari regarding if their lines were suitable for my family that includes 2 small children (her response was a resounding 'yes.) Her dogs are just beautiful. Does anyone else have experience with this breeder?

Are you talking about teh VanDen Heuvel K9 here on the CT/NY border? If so yes they are neighbors of one of my friends. The produce beautiful dogs. We contemplated one of their puppies about 2 years ago but opted to wait out for just the right puppy and found one with another breeder (temperment/gender/coat color) that we wanted.

I think that is where they are located. Dari has a (406) area code phone number. We would be reserving one at least in a year in advance so that we would get the pup that most suited our family. I live in GA and I really want a sable female so I would have them choose her for me from the different litters and have her shipped.

I know someone who just bred her male Varen to one of their females. Pups on the ground now. The male is really nice!
Here's a photo of the litter. Lots of sables! https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...82780995_n.jpg

Oh my goodness! They are adorable! I am one of those people though that prepares thoroughly before jumping. I have my lab Marley who is fantastic, but it seems after you have one, you start wanting more. I have always LOVED GSDs and I think my next pup will be one. I just have never had one, so I want to read up as much as possible so I am the best owner possible for the breed plus I have to save up the money that it takes to get a quality dog.

:thumbup:!! I wish every dog owner was so diligent in preparation!

My pup's bitch line comes from there. Good for you for being prepared and not just diving in! :)

I've looked them up & they appear to be very very good, may give them a look for a pup in a couple of years.

Do you guys know of some good books I can read that are breed specific and cover proper raising and training of GSDs?

Thanks!
Sarah

What type of training are you interested in? While I was waiting for my pup to whelp and come home his breeder recommended Sheila Booths book Purely Positive training.
We were going to do IPO so the foundation in the book was great. But it is for all pups, really...from companion to competition!
