Gabber 16 augustus 1994 - 4 april 2007Gabber was een kruising Mechelse herder/keeshond. Hij is in 1995, toen hij 13 maanden oud was door ons uit het asiel in Leiden gehaald.
Een hele uitdaging, want wij waren inmiddels zijn vierde baas en we gingen naar huis met een hele lijst met problemen die Gabber had, bijten van kinderen en bazin, niet alleen kunnen zijn, niet hierkomen, etc.
Gabber is bijna 13 jaar oud geworden. Dankzij onze inspanningen was er van zijn problemen weinig meer over. Op kinderen is hij nooit dol geweest, maar met onze dochter ging het prima. Op wandelen is hij bijna tot het eind erg dol geweest. Hij kon prima los mee. In het verleden heeft hij met veel plezier met speuren meegetraind bij kringgroep LimBra en bij een KC behendigheid getraind.

Gabber was a Malinois and Keeshound mix. In 1995, when he was 13 months old, we got him from the animal shelter in Leiden. A big challenge, because we became his fourth owner and we went home with a list of problems, biting of children and his boss, unable to be home alone, doesn''t know the meaning of the command "Here", etc. Gabber almost became 13 years old. Due to our efforts he didn''t have many problems anymore. He never liked children, but with our daughter he got along fine. He liked walking very much, almost till the end. He didn''t need a leech. In the past he trained tracking, also at kringgroep LimBra and Agility.

Who is Chakotay (Ko)

 

Chakotay is an average sized male with good bone. Ko has a good bite and is an excellent jumper. He has a good working drive.
However he is friendly to people till provoked (too sharp), easy with our own dogs but reacts extreme towards dogs outside.
Because we already noticed this when he has a puppy, we decided he needed to stay with us.

Wo is B''Etor

B'Etor is an average sized, quite dominant female with a somewhat male appearance. B''Etor is a dog that is obedient by nature and can''t think of anything more fun than work with you. She is always ready to do something. If she has too less exercise she is quite pushy in telling you she needs to do something. 
B'Etor is very good in tracking and obedience. B''Etor also did well in defense but lacks some courage for examinations/competitions.

B'Etor had one litter in 2006 with our Zinzi. There are big differences between her children. Her son Cinzi has a superb character, easy with people and dogs. He passed the NVBH mental test with excellent scores. Her son Chakotay has a difficult character, friendly to people till provoked, easy with our own dogs but react extreme towards dogs outside.
B'Etor has retired. She only does some obedience and tracking for fun now. In the past she trained IPO, G&G and Tracking. Her biggest achievements are participating twice in the Dutch National Championship for G&G.

Wo is Xavi

 

Xavi is a small, somewhat strong built female. Xavi is the easiest Groenendael I ever met, friendly towards all people, children and dogs, afraid of nothing, quick learner, easy to work with.

Xavi was very good in tracking and obedience. Defense work wasn''t her thing. She liked it with Paul, but not with anybody else.

 

Xavi had one litter in 2002 with our Zinzi. Her children are easy going like her. Several of them have been trained in Obedience, tracking and/or Agility.

Due to the cataract discovered in Xavi's eyes and her relatives eyes in 2003 her bloodline is excluded for breeding. A loss for the breed.

Xavi has retired. In the past she trained G&G, Tracking and some IPO. Xavi is now 14 years old and apart from the cataract she has never been ill. Recently she had a stroke. She has recovered well, only she is tired much faster nowadays.
