At Von Der King Kennels and Training we take great pride in our dogs and breeding stock. That’s why every dog that we use in our breeding program or that is available for stud, will go through a rigorous health screening. Each dog MUST pass OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip and Elbow ratings and each dog will also have the appropriate breed specific testing done. Our dogs are also trained from the ground up by us. This is a crucial step in our breeding program. We strongly feel that the best way to know your dog inside and out is to train the dog to high levels of success. Through our training program we can find faults, strengths, weaknesses, attributes and a whole host of genetic drives that will help us pick a partner to match, giving us the best possible pairing for the utmost in quality out of each litter.
