Kennel von Stärke is a highly respected breeder of both the Belgian Malinois and Dutch Shepherd. We have been breeding and showing Belgian Malinois since the summer of 2014, and introduced Dutch Shepherds to our program in early 2016.
Our goal is to produce happy, healthy dogs with balanced drive, structure and temperament. Our dogs are solely from working bloodlines. We strive to meet and exceed the written breed standard; preserving the true Belgian Malinois and the true Dutch Shepherd, which embodies strength, balanced character, and above all versatility in its’ ability to perform in many roles. For the sake of our dogs' mental health, we analyse and evaluate them before starting their training programs to be certain that both the handlers and dogs benefit from the program. Each dog has their own hand-tailored program as every dog is completely different and they have their own motivations and pace at which they learn.
Dogs are only bred in our kennel when they have proven themselves. We do not breed for the sake of selling puppies, we breed for the sake of improving our lines and the Dutch Shepherd and Belgian Malinois breed. All of our breeding dogs have been successful in competitions and are of top grade health. When breeding, we live by the code "quality over quantity."
