About us
What's next ... 2009-2011

First half of 2009 was an exciting period of waiting for new puppies. We bought toys and prepared books, collars, leashes and beds for them - maybe a little early, but they will sure come useful. When born, the puppies will take all our time. 

Fabík has grown very fast, a sweet little puppy change into a beautiful dog. We guess he is 74 cm and 56 kg, enough for a ten-month puppy. In fact, he is as heavy as Bára now. He took part in several shows. The first national show in Klatovy was most successful for him - he received his first CAJC. Then we appeared on a few small district and regional shows. Fabián's results and judgements were very good but it didn't seem to make him happy, he looked very bored. In spite of having been enlisted in several more shows, we don't want to torture him and will prefer going for a trip a walk instead.

In June Barča started being in heat so we could set off to see her bridegroom at last. This time we had chosen a dog from the Netherlands - Rosaceae Amaranthus, called Amore. It is a really beautiful, strong, typical leon with lovely fur, exactly a sort of male that Bára needs. As a bonus, he is goodtempered and friendly, it's really possible to say he loves people. Our trip was great, too, we had a very nice weather and saw lots of interesting new things. Holland is the right place for those loving travelling and nature, we can recommend it!

Our trip to Holland was successful. On August 31, Bára easily delivered eight puppies - litter D. though sonography had expected only five. And five were really delivered during first two hours. Then Barca fell asleep. We were happy how quick it was, but after three hours she woke up and to our surprise delivered one more, then another, and another. Finally, there were five males and three females.

Barča did not manage to feed them so we started feeding them soon. This litter was very different from the previous ones - they were all the time hungry! We even had to stint food for "Mastík". If we hadn't, he would have looked like a ball very soon. And the puppies showed the same spontaneity when playing - we loved watching them and they loved their toys, they really proved worth buying.

Fabián appeared to be an excellent nanny. Being just one year older, it often looked we have 9 puppies :-)

We had decided to keep one female puppy. Finally, we chose a "blue" one, mainly because of her good relationship with Fabián and Bára. Let me introduce her to you ... Debbie od Brdské studánky !!!

From this litter is allowed to breed our Debbie and also her wonderful brother Danny. We wish both of them lots of success and good luck!

In 2010 and 2011 we gathered experience and took part in a lot of shows - 15 in Bohemia, three in Slovakia and six in Croatia. And there was nothing to be ashamed of! All the dogs - Barča, Debbie and Fabián , were mostly excellent. Of course, we still need to learn a lot.

It'd be very interesting to compare our three Croatian trips - one to Varaždin in June 2010, the other to Osijek in September 2010, and Sinjin August 2011. But it'd mean to compare incomparable so I'll mention just Debbie's's excellent result - she met the criteria of the Croatian Junior Championship, getting 5x CAJC, and Fabián became Champion of Croatia.

Bára's offsprings made us very happy with their show achievements, especially great success of one of them - Danny od Brdské studánky. Danny is always liked by judges. He has been awarded the title of Best of Breed several times. He also managed to meet the requirements of getting the Czech Junior Champion and the Czech Champion titles very quickly. In 2011, he won a club show KCHL and received the Club Winner 2011 title. Congratulations!

Unfortunately, we escaped the series of bad news. Assanwas diagnosed with cancer the front legs. Borris eye cancer. Both had to be sleep. After her six-month fight and several operations, Aida had to be put to sleep as well cause her badly hurt paw couldn't be cured.

The empty place in Aida's family was to be filled soon. When Bára started to be on heat three months later, it was a sort of happy omen. There was no time to waste deciding about the mail so that we chose experienced and reliable Amore. And he succeeded! Two months later, nine lovely puppies were born. Almost the same day they were delivered, Amore won the Honorary Class in a German club show in Leonberg, and a week later he succeeded again, winning the Champion Class in another club show in France.

As soon as they were born, it became clear that E puppies are related to D puppies. The same predatoriness, the same buoyancy and appetite. And they were growing so fast...

And growing...

Fabík became a devoted nanny again, helping Barča to lick her puppies and playing with them. Debbie, their older sister, helped to look after them outside, being Bára's great help, too.

In September 2010, I was asked by magazine "Pes přítel člověka" to write an article about Leonbergers. I agreed and after a long fight, I produced an article, supplemented with opinions of other breeders, owners and vets. It came out in the November issue. You decide what it is like. There were two photos of D-puppies and a picture of Fabián published with it. It made us very happy.

Fabík grew up to be a beautiful dog allowed to breed from 2011.

We wanted to make Debbie breed in the same year. Before the bonitation, however, she had to take part in an obligatory show. Therefore, we registered her for the show in Klatovy. Something surprising happened in Klatovy - Debbie got Klatovy 2011 National Winner title, and Best of Breed title!!! We are very proud of her! Tongue Out

This way, Debbie met all the conditions necessary for breeding and in the autumn, she went throuh the bonitation, too.
