Producing a Family Bloodline

The catch-22 in breeding a family bloodline of KNPV Dutch Shepherds and Malinois’ is the endless supply of good working canines from random combinations. But as successful combinations come and go, a true family bloodline is never created. KNPV breeders gamble on the odds that they might be able to re-produce that special combination once again, but that in not producing a bloodline. The endless supply of good working canines from those random combinations, is generally enough to supply the demand for this type of canine. And that is the catch-22 predicament, we are unfortunately in.

 

In most cases, a successful combination is only appreciated when it can no longer be reproduced, At that point in time most breeders wish they had the ability to go back in time and do things differently. As most breeders generally collect semen from important males and not cryogenically frozen embryo’s from exceptional producing females; they must first compound on enough of the desirable traits, so that they can be reproduced on to future generations.

 

A dedicated breeder’s sole objective is to progressively move forward, whilst still preserving the genotype (internally coded, inheritable information) and phenotype (outward, physical manifestation) within their bloodline. He is not persuaded by external influences, such as financial gain or religious beliefs; but only towards the desired objective in a calculated breeding program.

 

Producing a bloodline is all about selection. The major benefit of inbreeding is that it exposes undesirable traits within that particular bloodline. This enables the breeder to eradicate those undesirable traits from that bloodline through prudent culling. By culling the offspring that have inherited the undesirable traits and continuing to inbreed from the most balanced females, a breeder will eventually remove the undesirable traits from that bloodline. Once they are removed, they will not remain dormant to reappear, generation after generation.

 

A family bloodline can only be produced through inbreeding not out-crossing. Out-crossing only dilutes desirable traits and does nothing to rectify the faults within that particular bloodline. It only masks the faults, which will reoccur in future generations. When a breeder inbreeds (father to daughter, son to mother or brother to sister) they are essentially compounding on the good and bad traits to expose them. After several generations of inbreeding, a breeder will begin to produce a family bloodline. This is the only proven method of re-producing desirable traits, with enough potency, to have a sufficient effect on successive generations.

 

If you would like to comprehend the level at which a family bloodline is considered isogenic (having the same or closely similar genotypes) this small paragraph from the worlds foremost laboratory the subject, will be very difficult for most canine breeders to accept.

 

Breeding Strategies for Maintaining Colonies of Laboratory Mice - author, JAX The Jackson Laboratory.

 

Relatively Simple Breeding Schemes

 

“A strain is defined as inbred if it was produced by sibling matings for more than 20 generations, after which all mice are considered isogenic or genetically identical. To remain inbred, a strain must be maintained by sibling matings or, if necessary, by parent-off spring matings. The main pedigree line should be derived from a single sister-brother breeding pair at each generation."

 

Yes, they did say a minimum of 20 generations of brother-sister matings.

 

In order for a trait to be present in the next generation, it needs to come from both parents. If the sire and dam both carry the same trait, it “may” be concentrated enough to carry onto the next generation. That is why, brother-sister matings are the key to success; because both the sire and dam carry many of the same hereditary traits. They may not be physically present, but they have a lot higher possibility of carrying on to the next generation.

 

If you want more of what a male has do successive father-daughter matings, if you want more of what a female has do successive son-mother matings. Then when you have enough of what it is you are looking for, inbreed continuous brother-sister matings to lock in those desirable traits. It’s really that simple. When you see undesirable traits in the offspring, cull and continue forward. After several generations your bloodline will begin to become isogenic. It took me 20 years to fully understand this concept and for the first time, I am able to explain it to you in one simple little paragraph.

 

It is highly recommended that you produce a second foundation (F2) family bloodline to protect you’re initial foundation one (F1) bloodline from serious unforseen complication. From the original dam you commenced your F1 bloodline, inbreed a continuous father-daughter combination with an unrelated male; until there is a clear understanding of the genetic potential of the male you are intending to reproduce. I recommend a triple father-daughter mating at a minimum, until there is enough uniformity in both phenotype and genotype. Then begin a continuos brother-sister, family bloodline for several generations. It is very important that you keep the two independent bloodlines, completely separate from one another until there is a clear indication that they are isogenic.

 

Regrettably, that is where almost every breeder fails. They cross the two independent bloodlines together and discontinue with the original foundation one (F1) and foundation two (F2) bloodlines and create a hybrid vigor out-cross; because they appear to be better. But they never reproduce successfully, for their lack of consistency.

 

Have a look at this pedigree and DNA comparison to give to an indication on how to produce a family bloodline.


Here is a link to an excellent article explaining the difference between line-breeding versus outcrossing.

 

We endeavour to be the first KNPV mixed Dutch Shepherds and Malinois’ breeder to replicate the breeding practices outlined above, from the world’s foremost laboratory the subject. I would like to say a very special thankyou, to our good friends in the Netherlands for making this possible.

Our Guarantee

All our pups come with a full two year replacement guarantee, which covers both structural and genetic defects and also guarantees their working ability. In addition, they will be rigorously temperament tested and evaluated before they leave our premises. If you are not satisfied, simply return it to our location (at your expense) and it will be replaced with another pup from our next available litter.

Conditional Refundable Deposits

Deposits are taken on a first in line basis. However, your deposit is conditionally refundable if you are not satisfied with the outcome of the pup you have chosen. To reserve the opportunity of owning a world class working dog from these exceptional KNPV bloodlines, please contact Michael anytime on +55 48 9924 3144 via WhatsApp.


If you are interested in purchasing one of our pups, please take into consideration that the pup needs to fly out of Florianopolis International Airport, Brazil. For most overseas enquiries, a pup must be atleast 16 weeks of age before it is eligible to fly. Therefore the pup needs to be socialized and imprinted before it leaves our premises. That requires considerable time and effort, so the minimum price for purchasing one of our pups in Brazil is $2500. For pups born in the USA, prices start from $1500.

Our Duco II Bloodline

Duco II (Dhr. R. Seegers, Stokkum) BRN 60

PH I 428 CL

Geb datum: ??-??-????

Duco II Seegers is considered by many as a legendary KNPV Malinois, the "Godfather" in many respects. Many exceptional KNPV dogs have Duco II in their pedigree. Some of his notable offspring were: Rico Hendrikx, Max Weber, Nick Verhoeven, Max Hermans, Kwinto Pekel, Rocco Roelofs, Buck Huijs, Rex Helmond, Rico Overbeek, Bico Tielen, Arno van Tricht, Rico Puts, Astor Seegers, Rino Reuvers and Beppie I Kamphuis.


Excuse my lame questions but his answers are whats important. - Chris Jones Kampfrieb Kennels in South Australia.


Hi Chris.


The most important dog that you have is the dog you train with. Duco is dead. When you want to breed dogs it is important to know the bloodline.


Q1. What was Duco like with strangers that came to his house? How would he greet them?


He didn't bark, he stood up and observed. Mostly he was in his kennel. The times that he was not in his Kennel he was "cool" to strangers, dominant, but not aggressive. Most people were impressed by his attitude. When he looked at other aggressive barking dogs, they stopped barking.


Q2. What was he like at biting? What type of biter was he?


He had a strong powerful bite. The longer he bites on a decoy man, the stonger his bite got. His bite was always without any noise.


Q3. What was his pain tollerance like? How hard would you have to puinsh him before he would let go of the decoy etc?


Unbelievable, I can't tell you how hard, because otherwise I have to go to jail. But seriously, the dog had trouble with giving up on all things because of his dominancy. With a kind of a dog that Duco was, you have to know things about behaviour in a psycologocal kind of way. But on the other hand sometimes you have to be hard to him but always remain calm yourself. When you are getting aggressive the dog will also be angry.


Q4. Was he a happy to please dog in obedience training?


No, he liked it when you talk to him and lay your hand on a pleasant way to him by stroking. But when you gave him a ball for instance he would tear it apart.


Q5. How old was he when he died and what did he die from?


He was 10 years and died on cancer.


Q6. What was he like as a young puppy? Did you know when you got him as a puppy that he would be so good, or was he slow to mature and show his true character?


I got him when he was seven months. The people where I got him from couldn't handle him and thought he was crazy and dangerous. But he was an intelligent dog, with a brave heart and a lot of courage. I knew from the beginning that it was a special dog, because his mother and father and his whole bloodline were giving very strong offspring.


Q7. Was he more police dog or more sport dog?


He was only police dog. How harder the circumstances, the better he was.


Q8. How many breedings did he have, and what are some of the problems you can get by breeding too close on him?


He bred about 130 times, with about 40 different female dogs. He has about 1100 offsprings. The problems you can get by breeding too close on him are menthal and physical problems. It works the same as by human and other animals.


Q9. How tall and heavy was he?


He was about 64cm tall and around 40kg. He was very heavy muscled.


Q10 Who were his strongest sons?


Quite a few, so to hard to say. Many good sons an daughters.

Kwinto (Dhr. G. Pekel, Maasdijk) BRN 1754

PH I 436 CL

Diensthond

Geb datum: ??.??.????

Kwinto was not as open and social, as other Duco II offspring - which may have been due to the fact that he was a security service dog, or that he inherited that trait form his dam. But his legendary status, as one of the best Duco II sons, still continues. Unfortunately, neither Duco II, nor any of his sons were collected, but we are very fortunate to have collected a very good Kwinto son in Holland. His frozen semen will be used on one of our tightly line-bred Duco II granddaughters in the near future.

Rico (Dhr. B. Hendrikx, Lage-Mierde) BRN 2116

PH I 438 CL

Geb datum: 15-03-1995 († ??-09-2009)

Rico Hendrikx was a very famous Duco II son. He was an exceptional KNPV Malinois, an extreme dog that earned respect due to his appearance and excellent character. He had an outstanding pedigree and was a proven producer. The combination of Rico Hendrikx x Tessa Hendrikx was so successful, it was repeated four times. It was a line-breeding on Duco II (3 - 5) Rico died in September, 2009 at the age of 14 years, due to a gastric torsion. His semen would be worth its weight in gold today.

Nick (Dhr. C. Verhoeven, Siebengewald) BRN 2441
PH I 423 CL
Diensthond Politie Nijmegen

Geb datum: 19-08-1999

Nick Verhoeven's original owner Hennie Schreur stated we must never forget the importance of his dam, Kimmy Liebrand PH I 399½ C, "Kimmy was one of the best bitches I ever saw" Hennie also stated that Nick I, as he was originally called, was the best of all the Duco II sons, with Rico Hendrikx and Kwinto Pekel coming second and third.


Not only did Nick have a very good pedigree, Nick was a real police dog as well. He was mated many times to different females, but the police never made it public. After retirement, Nick was only used a few times because of his very dominant behaviour towards females, despite that he produced remarkably well and will be remembered as not only an excellent police dog, but an outstanding producer as well. We are very fortunate to own one of his last remaining daughters and frozen semen from one of his very good sons.

Max (Dhr. R. Weber, Deventer) BRN 3737

PH I 425 CL
Obj. 312+24 C
Geb datum: 15-07-1998 († 25-03-2008)

Max has become an influential Duco II son, via his very popular son, Django Sommers.

Django (Dhr. T. van der Doelen, Velp) BRN 4730
PH I 439 CL
PH II 454 CL

Geb datum: ??-??-???? († 00.05.2011)

Django was a Duco II grandson out of Max Weber x Cora Harmsen.

Nick II (Dhr. H.W. Schreur, Silvolde) BRN 13265

Geb datum: 15-08-2005

Nick II Schreur was bred by Hennie Schueur from Silvolde, the Netherlands. He was a very well bred KNPV Malinois, that was linebred (2 - 4, 5) on Duco II. Nick II is a Max Weber son and Max Weber maternal great-grandson; a Django Sommers maternal-grandson and a Corrie Massop son.


To preserve the bloodline of Nick II, we bred Bowie BRN 24640 (a Nick II x Tica son) to his full sister Nicky BRN 24592 in 2016. We retained one very good male out of that combination. Rico BRN 31120.


Here is a video of Nick II doing some bitework.

Rico (Dhr. E. Vergossen, Koningsbosch) BRN 17064

Geb datum: 15-03-2007 († 21-05-2013)

Rico Vergossen, along with his most notable brothers Kwinto P. Sommers, Rico J. te Lindert, Jochie Ulrich (Race) and sister, Noa J. te Lindert are very well known for producing exceptional KNPV working dogs. Rico was an extreme dog and earned respect for his dominant and courageous character. He stood 67 cm and weighed 42 to 45kgs. Rico is also line-bred on Duco II (3 -5) and is well known for receiving the dominant Duco II/ Rico Hendrikx traits.

Males via Frozen Semen

Duco (Dhr. G. Pekel, Veenoord) BRN 30449

Geb datum: 02-01-2006

Duco is without a doubt the most important Duco II grandson we have collected. Duco’s sire is the exceptional Kwinto Pekel PH I 436 CL. His dam, Elza PH I 429 ½ CL is out of Dino te Pas and Laika, a Duco II daughter. If you know your old school KNPV lines, it doesn’t get much better. Duco is therefore linebred (3 - 4) on Duco II and is a perfect match for Tica, our linebred (3 - 4) Duco II granddaughter.


We would like to thank Gerrit Pekel and Kees Planken for allowing us to purchase frozen semen from Duco.


This is a photo of Kwinto x Elza’s litter, that was born on the 02-01-2006

Jochie (Dhr. C. Race, Crawfordville FL, USA) BRN 15819

PH I 424 CL

Geb datum: 20-09-2008

“Jochie is a reasonable, social, one of a kind dog with perfect nerves and a well balanced character. A dominant dog with extreme working drives who handles pressure like no other dog. His biting on the KNPV suite as well as the IPO sleeve is hard and full, his attacks simply hard and solid. Jochie’s medical state is 100% (perfect teeth, X-rayed hips, elbows, back) like we’re used to from the Duco II line in general. …. Not the type of high ball-drive sport dog but for serious and experienced handlers.” - Royal Police Dogs

Barkus (Dhr. C.L. Planken, Hardinxveld-Giessendam) BRN 20604

PH I 400 C

Geb datum: 08-04-2010

Barkus is a perfect blend of his sire and dam, he was a very serious male that was sold as an operational service dog. Kees Planken from Kepa-Kennels was fortunate to use Nick Verhoeven twice and stated the combination between Nick x Puts, produced the best litter he ever bred. Unfortunately the female that Kees retained, tore a ligament in her knee and was subsequently put down.


Barkus' dam Puts van de Kepa-kennels PH I 419 CL was out of Luc x Tash, the most successful combination Jack Puts has produced to date. She was an outstanding female and complete in every way.


We would like to thank Kees Planken for donating frozen semen from Barkus. This will enable us to add an outstanding Nick I son and the exceptional qualities of Puts, to our breeding program.

Rico (Dhr. S. Ndayisenga, Umeå, ZWE) BRN 31120

Geb datum: 09-06-2016

If you’re after a real Duco II type KNPV Malinois, look no further as Rico is as closes as it gets. You will not find another breeder anywhere that has anything this well bred on Duco II. Especially that Rico is linebred 10 x times on Duco II, in just the first 7 generations.


Rico is a reasonable size, open social male, that in not sharp or defensive. Out of drive, he is calm and quiet and therefore very easy to live with. Important traits, we believe, are necessary for a tactical K9. But when the work begins, Rico has very intense prey and possession, with a forward pushing grip. His searching is calm and methodical, while his retrieving is unbelievably intense. Don’t take our word for it, see his videos below.


Rico was the only pup that we retained from his litter, as he stood out from day one. He was specifically chosen, so that he could be bred to his double-bred granddam Tica, to preserve her exceptional bloodline.


If you would like to add Rico’s exceptional traits to your breeding program, his frozen semen is now available, per breeding unit or full collection.

Rico is linebred on:

Bico (Dhr. M.W.C. Tielen, Egchel) BRN 3686

Geb datum: 05.03.1997

Bico is a full sister to Arno van Tricht, a certified police surveillance dog, Diensthond Politie Tilburg, the sire of Cooper Huijs, PH I 422 CL
Diensthond Politie Breda. Her dam Cora Tielen was an Arras Derks daughter and her sire was Duco II Seegers. Bico is the maternal granddam of our foundation breeding female Tica.

Corrie (Dhr. A.R.L. Massop, Lievelde) BRN 8135
PH I 421 CL

Geb datum: 16.04.2004

Corrie Massop was an exceptionally well bred female. Not only was she a daughter of Django Sommers, Corrie was also line-bred on Duco II Seegers (4 - 3) and Duco II’s sire Arno te Brake (5 - 4, 5). To add to that, Corrie was then bred to a direct Duco II son, Max Weber the sire of Django Sommers, to produce Nick II Schreur. Corrie was also very good at searching and retrieving.

Cilke (Dhr. M.W.C. Tielen, Egchel) BRN 11261

Geb datum: ??-??-????

Cilke Tielen has Duco II as her maternal grandsire and is a direct daughter out Bico Tielen x Cody Huijs PH I 435 ½ CL. Cilke was bred to Nick Verhoeven, PH I 423 CL Diensthond Politie Nijmegen to produce our foundation breeding female Tica.

Tessa (Dhr. B. Hendrikx, Lage-Miede) BRN 14265

Geb datum: ??-??-????

Tessa was bred four times to the legendary Rico Hendrikx. Those four litters produced Kwinto P. Sommers, Rico E. Vergossen, Rico J. te Lindert, Jochie Ulrich (Race) and sisters, Noa J. te Lindert and Kim, just to mention a few. Her offspring are considered by many to be of outstanding quality and exceptional producers in their own right, as well.


Tessa was also bred to Charlie from Tini van der Doelen to produce o Cita.


Here are two videos of Noa and Kim, just to give you an example of how well this mothers-line is bred.

Tica (Dhr. S. Ndayisenga, Umeå, ZWE) BRN 20784

Geb datum: 22-07-2009

Tica is a large, dominant female, with very intense prey and possession. She has a very firm grip and will retrieve balls, keys and metal pipes with pleasure. Tica is linebred (3 - 4) on Duco II and one of the last remaining daughters out of Nick Verhoeven, in our opinion the best Duco II son. They just don’t breed them like this anymore. To add to that, Tica's maternal grandsire is Cody Huijs PH I 435 ½ CL.

"Cita is a proven producer. First litter breed in the Netherlands turned out to bring excellent quality police dogs. Cita is Freddy’s sister, same mother as Jochie, directly imported from the Netherlands just because of the perfect match with both our studs, Manni and Jochie. Cita is a serious dog, handler social but with good civil aggression in work. We are expecting quite serious dogs from this combination, therefore, knowledge in training this kind of dogs is recommended." - Royal Police Dogs

Both Charlie and Cita were personally owned by Tini as well.


About Charlie:


Charlie is a very well known Cody Huijs PH I 435 ½ CL son, that produces exceptional quality Mals, when combined with Duco II. This is what Marcel Aalders had to say about Charlie “one mans dog, very, very serious, super confident and dominant. Phenomenal nose/search drive, passes this in a dominant way by genetics.”
