„The pitter patter of little paws…“


- Crufts 2018: First of all I was gutted that Erin hurt her paw bad 3 weeks before our trip to GB and we had to leave her home.
-On the other hand I was quite chuffed how our youngsters (10 mts old) presented themselves at this big show.
-WindDrover Forever And A Day: 2nd puppy bitches
-WindDrover Faithful Sould: 3rd puppy bitches
-WindDrover Epic Adventure: Res puppy bitches.
- None of the girls were experienced, it was their second show only. Well done babes!!
- We got some more health results for the boy we hope to use over Erin this spring:
-German HD/ED rating: B2 (fair) and ED normal.
- His blood is at the laboratory right now, getting tested for PLL and rcd4 as well as getting his Prcd-PRA status confirmed.
- Hopefully his eyes (CERF) will be done soon so I can finally reveal ;) his identity als sire of our G-litter.
- Crufts 2018: Begann mit einer riesen Enttäuschen 3 Wochen vor der Abfahrt nach England: Erin verletzte sich die Pfote so schwer, dass wir sie zu Hause lassen mussten.
- Auf der anderen Seite haben sich unser Jüngsten (10 Monate alt) auf dieser riesen Ausstellung toll präsentiert
- WindDrover Forever And A Day: 2nd puppy bitches
- WindDrover Faithful Soul: 3rd puppy bitches
- WindDrover Epic Adventure: Res. puppy bitches.
-Keine der Kleinen hat wirklich Erfahrung im Showring, es war ihre 2. Ausstellung. Toll gemacht Babies.
- Wir haben ein paar mehr Gesundheitsauswertungen für den Rüden den wir hoffentlich in diesem Frühling für Erin einsetzen können:
- Deutsche HD/ED Auswertung: HD-B2, ED-0.
Sein Blut ist jetzt gerade beim Labor und wird auf PLL und rcd4 getestet. Ausserdem wird sein Prcd2-PRA Status bestätigt.
-Hoffentlich können seine Augen demnächst untersucht werden (Spaltlampe), damit ich ihn endlich als geplanten Vater für unseren G-Wurf offenlegen kann.

Who we are

... and what we do
Form follows function

Since January 2007 our kennel is approved by the German kennel club (VDH) and our kennel name registered and protected through the FCI. Pups born in our kennel get VDH/FCI papers.
We live in our wooden house in Ostfriesland, in Northern Germany.
We are located about 40km from the Dutch border.
Originally from southern Germany we moved up north because of Alex’ job. His passion are our girls Piper and Erin, his hobbies are playing the keyboard in his band, cars and computers. Basically he loves everything mecanical and if there is oil in it, all the better. Whenever he is at home he loves to take care of his family, both 2 leggers and 4.

I work part time as a vet nurse and have a full time job at home, keeping our house with all the critters living there, running smoothly. We have an American quarter horse (living at our friends farm), chickens and our little pack of Australian Cattle Dogs. Our fur and feathered friends run the property together and get along quite well. My animals are my life and i take my responsibility for them very seriously.

Alex and I both are USDDN (dog frisbee) judges level 2.

My dogs are my constant companions. They live in our home with us. They are not kenneled. As in all breeds, over the years different characteristics developed in different bloodlines. Therefore there are differences in the existing lines within a breed.
We selected our dogs bloodlines because they
- fit the breed standard (mid sized, well balanced, harmonic)
- have a kind character
- have good temperament and are not given to excess agression
-resemble the original Australian Cattle Dog.

I train mantrailing with our Piper (WindDrover Bullet Proof) as well as with Erin (Austmans Everybody’s Talkin’ ). For fun Alex starts at dog frisbee tournaments with Piper in Toss & Fetch and our friend’s 13 yrs daughter qualified for the German Finals DDCG 2016 in open class with Erin after basically no training whatsoever.
Beside this they are my dog alarm as soon as something suspicious is going on on the property.

My main focus in breeding lies with balanced, even tempered dogs that can be used for rescue work, agility, sports and confirmation. Of course all our breeding animals have complete health checks and the puppies will be fully socialized, vaccinated, dewormed and chipped when going to their new homes.

We are extremely proud of our offspring. They confirm, that I am on the right way to achieve what I was hoping for.

Our puppies are wonderful family and companion dogs, internationally successful in disc dog, show a lot of talent on sheep, earn their living working cattle, A-plus students in obedience, run their hearts out in agility-parcours, live with heavily handicapped children, work as therapy-dogs and present themselves well in the showring.
