We wish all our friends, Beardie-lovers and especially all our Beardie-kids great Christmas days, with a lot of fun for the dogs and peace for their people!
Some exciting days...
Merlin - Porgy Black Shadow of the Unique Shaded Dreams, visited us together with his Mom Sylvia Eichhorn and Kerstin Kirsch, breeder of Unique Shaded Dreams together with 7 Beardie girls and another Beardie boy. And I can give away it where a few very hot days for Bella & Merlin!!!
From the first moment on they fell in love and could not get enough from one another.
...guess with so much passion there should arrive a few puppies in February... We will wait and see. In a couple of weeks we know more!
Big thanks goes to Sylvia & Kerstin - though you had an adventurous trip you made it to us!
I admit this photos are a bit indiscreet - but the two lovers were not bothered a bit!
Again a great day for April - at her 1st Winter Obedience Competition 2015!
Sly in the newspaper!!!

I am sooo proud of our offsprings!!! Bellas children did a great job again !
April, Aislinn and Barbarix showed their skills at different levels of obedience yesterday - while it was raining heavily.
A few months ago AISLINN has already got her certificate for OBEDIENCE level 2, her sister APRIL passed yesterday the same level with 273 points, mark "EXCELLLENT". It was her first try. She is alowed to start at level 3 by now, but she want´s to compete during the winter season in level 2!
Also their little brother BARBARIX showed a great performance: 88 Punkte at his first start at level BGH-1 - though the handler was a little bit nervous :-)

6. Woche - 6th week:
The proud parents seems to be a little overstrained...
Again "Brilliant News" from one of our "Shepherd Calls Brilliant"-puppies!!!
We are so proud of Sly who worked for the first time with sheep, but looks like she has done it her whole life! She is extremely calm, but always focused on the sheep, without stressing them unneccssarily! It was a pleasure to watch! Thanks for giving her the opportunity to work!
...and after the work she deserves a good refreshing bath!
We are so proud of Lida!!!Lida, lived up her name "Brilliant"!!! She got the Agility trial title!!! You are great - keep on having fun!
Is that possible? A cuckoo´s egg in a dogs litter?
the boys the girls
the girls... ...and the boys!
We are one week old!!!
The Boygroup: Ok, let´s wait a few more weeks, and than we are bigger than you!!!
April´s Babies were born in March!!!
6 healty babies were delivered!!!
3 girls (2 black, 1 brown) and 3 boys (1 blue, 1 black, 1 brown) had their first look into a new and exciting world!!!
Mama April, grandma Bella look carefully after the puppies!
the boys: the girls:
April is very proud and cann´t take her eyes of the little ones!
The Countdown has begun!!!
Very exciting - our
"C"-Babies arrive soon!!!
2 more weeks to go!!!
*) today we built the whelping-box, so April can get used to it and make her self comfortalbe!
The Breeder is responsible!!!
Basics for a happy and fearless life has to be grounded during the puppy-age! That means the breeder is in demand!!!
Good Health, strong Character & great Sozialization!!!
One can trust that all breeders at the Austrian Club ÖCBH breed only with healthy Beardies, and so they try to enable their offsprings a long, healthy and happy live.
Furthermore we have some additional interests!
Only dogs with a good, strong character can go into our breeding programm. A dog who is afraid of noise (shooting, thunder,...) or anything else, is not going to make our own high standards - even if he was used from other breeders before!
It's the same with dogs who are anxious or even aggresiv against human or other animals! This is a non-tolerable behaviour, is bad for our breed and therefore such an animal can not be accepted as a sire/breeding animal!
It is very important for us to save the funny, nice and easygoing temperament in our Beardies. They should be able to work with brain and have a good, strong constitution!!!
But on the other hand it is just as important to calm down when there is nothing to do! Nobody need a nervous, hectic dog at home, but want a great cuddly friend - and I think the following photos show exactly what we mean!
It does not matter how activ our dogs are outside - as soon as the work/action is finished,
the calm down immediately and that we appreciate a lot!!!
It does not matter if there are other dogs...
...or their beloved human...
Long and recreative periods are not only necessary for us human, but also for the healthiness of our dogs!
Great Socialization is an abolute MUST!!!
Especially in our modern society a great socialization is an absolute must! Therefore we show our puppies many things which are useful for their further lifes!
...be it many humans, including children of course...
...driving/riding by car, bus, subway...
...walking on noisy streets, visiting a coffee-house or going to a petfood-store,...
...showing them different kind of animals...
- and much more - shall prepare the little ones for a fearless, happy life!
Because only fearless you & your dog can really enjoy the life!
If the dog lives in permanent stress - and you think hopefully there is no shooting noise, thunderstorm, misfire, fireworks, other people, dogs, animals, or what ever, because you know your dog is afraid of, pinches his tail, or even worse, he runs away, you can not enjoy your daily walk!
In this spirit we give our little ones the best possibility for a great life!
Be what they want to be!
Last but not least: Our dogs are allowed to be dogs!!!
We don´t care for a nice show-coat - our dogs are allowed to jump into muddy poodles, roll around, go for a swim, run through the woods - when ever they like - because a dog can never ever live a happy life, if he is not allowed to be a dog anymore!
"WE" ARE PREGNANT!!!
Yesterday the vet saw, that April is pregnant!!! A few more weeks to go and our "nursery" will be full of life again!!!
We are looking forward to the sweet pups of Merlin & April and this exciting time!!!
If you want to know more, please don´t hesitate to contact us!!! ++43(0)0699-12 19 25 97 or firstname.lastname@example.org
