In May 1994 we moved to Germany and that is where the storey begins............
We purchased our first Dobermann in July 1994, Atlas vom Heinsberger Land (Atlas vom Flandrischen Löwen x Bea vom Vaalserquartier) and in October 1995 Quirina vom Heidhauser Forst (Larson Vom Frankenland x Eyra Vom Heidhauser Forst). We competed in a couple Dobermann breed shows whilst in Germany, that is where the enjoyment of showing started.
We returned to England in 1997. In the autumn of 1999 we breed our second litter, from this Amious Crowd Around Me (CH Chaanrose Don't Crowd Me At Jaegerson x Quirina vom Heidhauser Forst), Rave, was born. Rave has had many Best Puppy in Breed, Best of Breed, Puppy Group and Group placings at Open shows, with the best result at Solihull Canine Society Open show where he took Best Puppy in Show under Keith Young, Whitchurch & District Canine Society Reserve Best in Show under Norman Butcher. At Championship shows, Best Puppy in Breed under breed specialist Mr Graham Hunt at South Wales Kennel Association then went onto Puppy Group 4. Also, at Blackpool Championship Show he was Working & Pastoral Beta Puppy Dog Stakes winner under Joyce Mann.
Then along came, Jokamily Schimeel At Amious (CH Amazon Dark Angel JW x Meadow of Dreams), Luna, has had many success's at both Open and
Championship Shows. Under Bob Gregory at Oswestry & District KA in March 2004 Luna was awarded Reserve Best Puppy in Show. At Bath Championship Show Luna won Working/Pastoral Purina/Dog World Puppy Bitch Stakes under Jill Peak.
She has had many Best of Breed, Best Puppy in Breed at Open Shows and placings at Championship shows, gaining her Junior Warrant in December 2004.
In October 2005 Luna was awarded Reserve Best In Show at the North of England Dobermann Club open show under breed specialist Peter Voros. In November 2005 at Burton-On-Trent KA Luna goes Best In Show under Sue Searles (Show and Group Judge), Tracie Mason (Breed Judge) and gains her Show Certificate of Merit (ShCM). July 2006, Luna does it again, Best In Show at Owestry & District KA under Meg Purnell-Carpenter (Show Judge) and Anne Crawford (Breed Judge), what brillant day even though it was so hot.
At our first European show (March 2007), Luna wins Open Brown Bitch class and gains a CACL under Mr Ole Andersen at Luxembourg International Dog Show.
Luna wins RCC at Working & Pastoral Breeds of Wales under breed specialist Mrs Irene McManus in April 2007. Also, Reserve Best in Show at the Midland Dobermann Club in June under breed specialist Mr Andy Ball.
At our second European show, Luxembourg Trophy Show (Dobermann Club) Luna goes 2nd in Open Brown Bitch and wins the RCACL.
In November 2007 Luna produced a lovely litter of 6 males and 5 females, all Black & Rust, the sire Conall Moravia Heart At Skyjeaneey (Imp). From this litter we kept Amious Ruff Diamond, Eddie, who started his show career in May 2008 wining Minor Puppy Dog class at Southern Counties show under breed specialist Jimmy Richardson and qualify from Crufts 2009.
In July 2008 at the Luxembourg Trophy Show (Dobermann Club) Luna gains her Luxembourg Champion title, Best Brown Female in Show and Luxembourg Trophy Winner 2008 by winning the Open Brown Female class under Mr John Walsh Jnr.
Eddie continued his puppy show career by wining Reserve Best Puppy in Show at the North of England Dobermann Club Open Show under breed specialist Mrs Caroline Friend-Rees. He has also had has many Best Puppy in Breed, Best of Breed, Puppy Group and Group placings at Open Shows and many placings throughout the classes at Championship shows.
So far his greatest success has been he won his first CC at Leeds Championship Dog Show in July 2010 under breed specialist Mrs Irene McManus, what a magic day. Then in October 2011 at North Eastern Dobermann Club he won his second CC, Best Opposite Sex and Reserve Best In Show under breed specialist Mr John McManus, an absolutely marvellous day.
He also gained his first CACL at Luxembourg International show under Mr Guy Kipps in 2009 and the second CACL under Mr Armin Hoppe in 2010, gaining his Luxembourg Champion title.
A big thanks to all judges that have thought so highly of our dogs.
