The kennel name Von Hausman means House of Man in German. Years ago we did train and show German Shepherds, but got out of it because of the health issues in the breed. We have since become involved with Labrador and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We chose these breeds not just for our love of them, but also because they are very hardy breeds and wonderful family companions.
With a combined thirty plus years "in dogs" we were finally fortunate enough to find the right property in Geneva Township in 1988. We own over fourteen acres in what is semi-rural Ohio and have established our kennel. Even though this is serious business to us we do have a lot of fun with our dogs and our kennel is affectionately known as "the zoo".
We are very selective about who we sell our puppies and adults dogs to. Ninety-nine percent of our dogs go into homes as companions to families and to us that makes temperament the most important item we breed for. All of our puppies are guaranteed in a written contract. They are born and raised in our home so they are sure to be exposed to the family environment. All of our puppies go home on a limited registration, this way we have complete control of our pedigrees which we have worked very hard to develop.
We do occasionally keep puppies from our litters. These are the puppies that we find will be best suited for showing and improving the breed.
On occasion there are older puppies and adult dogs available for adoption. These are usually the ones that we have decided are not maturing to be what we are looking for as far as show quality. It is a very easy adjustment for them when they go to a new home as they are used to being spoiled here in our home.
All of our breeding stock has their Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) certification, their Certified Eye Registry Foundation (CERF) certification, and they are all Optigen tested or clear by parentage.
We strive to breed the best Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and the best Labrador Retrievers you can find. We have produced many champions as well as hunting dogs, therapy dogs, and obedience champions. We feel we breed the best possible companion. Our dogs are truly "Man's Best Friend".
We will also, board your dog for the lifetime of the dog. After all, when you get one of our puppies, they are raised in our house and they know us and know the home they were born in. We love to get to see our puppies and how they are growing. We will request that you bring proof of vaccinations and kennel cough inoculations.
