NATIONAL CHAMPION KANAS KENEI VAN DEN HEUVEL SCHI, BH, CD, CDX , SEARCH AND RESCUE DOG, H.O.T. “HERO” Handler owned, trained, and titled, son of the legendary Norbo Ben Ju, exemplifies his sire’s structure and working drives. His lines through both his dam, Exa Z Esagilu, and Norbo are 100% working Czech, with strong DDR backing. Hero is a dog of incredible heart and devotion, good with children and with other animals. With endless drive for the ball or tug, no hesitation on variable surfaces, a gusto that is pure delight, he has what I consider the ideal working ability.
INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION JAKE VOM KANAS CD, BH, JJ-N, RN, 2007 4H OBEDIENCE CHAMPION H.O.T. Handler owned, trained, and titled, combines the DDR look of his sire, Dagger, grandson to Lord Gleisdreieck with the strong Czech pedigree of his dam, Quitta. With his far reaching trot, Jake glides as he moves. Ever at our little daughter’s side, Jake is being trained by her in obedience and agility. His temperament is gentle, loyal, and calm. (2016, Jake is still with us, though now age twelve, he is retired from the breeding program)

With a flash of red, Max would bound off to find the lost with a work ethic not soon to be forgotten.
