Education is the Key to a Better Future for the Breed
Haus Ulv Kennels believes in the science of breeding and knowing the genetics with in the bloodlines used in a breeding program. Not every breeder out there does DNA testing nor do they study or understand the genetics behind the dogs they have. This can cause the German Shepherd breed even more health issues than it already has. As the saying goes, "Knowing is half the battle". Knowing if a dog carries certain alleles can help to diminish recessive alleles that may cause diseases that are detrimental to the longevity of dogs in a litter.
It is the responsibility of breeders to understand the science of genetics and not just breed dogs but actually have a breeding program with a goal of bettering the breed. Knowing the genetics in the dogs used can assist in reaching that goal. Haus Ulv Kennels is an AKC certified breeder in the courses taken that have a score posted at the left to expand our knowledge as a responsible ethical breeder.

Dartanian van den Heuvel RIP
Dartanian (aka Dar) DOB May 8th 2003 is a dark sable.He is OFA Good and elbows normal. He is trained for personal protection. He has a stable temperament, social and high drive for working.He passes these good characters, color and conformation on to his progeny. Trained for off leash obedience, he is obedient even under distractions and is used as a demo dog for my clients to see how a dog can be through the training I do. I also use him when working with little dogs that are fearful of big dogs.He helps them to gain confidence and not be fearful. Dar comes from Czech and DDR lines.His sire was a border patrol dog Congo Vikar. Dartanian for stud services to approved females. Some of his progeny pictures on the right and below are Dar's Sire and Dam and the female he was bred to. Sadly Dar has passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I will see you on the other side my loyal companion.
