the Dane, who has owned and breed Malinois for the longest time, the same goes
for my Czechoslovakian wolf dogs. I was also the first Dane to breed them.
worked as a security dog, until he died at the age of 14. Nilas was a
certified police dog, before he started his career as security dog. He has
also achieved certificates at shows.
was awarded “best bitch” at a show, even though another contestant was
a 14 year old champion bitch. Nami was in the patrol class in PH.
passion for dogs started on my 5th birthday. I wanted a dog – a sct.
Bernhard – more than anything. But my mother insisted – we were not getting
a dog! My parents had had a dog earlier and it had not been a success. On my 5th
birthday we visited my uncle, who had just gotten a litter of Fox Terriers. I
fell completely in love with one of them. As we were leaving, my uncle
approached the car with his hands on his back and said that he had a birthday
present for me. He then placed little Bella on my lap. My mom could have killed
him! But she couldn’t bring herself to say that I couldn’t keep the dog, but
she made it clear that the dog wasn’t allowed inside the house. We lived in
the country and it was totally normal to have the dogs living in the stables
back then. But a dog that small is easy to sneak in, so it didn’t take long
for Bella to feel at home in the house and my mom couldn’t help but adore her.
I spend all my time with my dog and
I loved teaching her new tricks. When I moved away from home, she came with me.
I only moved
moving and losing the one and only sct. Bernhard, I wanted a big dog, either an
Irish wolf hound or a great Dane. There were no wolf hounds at that time, so I
got a great Dane. A really great dog, Aya, with a lovely disposition. My better
half thought that with a dog this size, a course in obedience would be necessary
(not that my fox terriers weren't obedient) This started my career in working
dogs. Aya came in second at the final test and I was hooked - I wanted to train
further. John looked at me like I was crazy and asked how long I was planning to
train. I still do. I got a litter from Aya and this was how my career as a dog
breeder began. Even today, my heart still melts every time I see a great Dane.
so hooked on training dogs that I had to have a working dog. We discussed a lot
of different races. One day, I saw an article in the “Dog” magazine about
Belgian Sheep dogs and that made up my mind. I was completely smitten.
This picture helped me
make my decision and is the reason why I have malinois today.
HAD to get a malinois! Jane and Huib v Sabben came to my rescue. They got a

I still train using the rules I made for Dina. Firstly, it needs to be a dog,
which can do the work, but it also needs to fit in the racial standard. I have
based my training on old du Colombophile dogs + traces of other good old lines,
as you can see under pedigree.
