Our Breeding Program

The catch-22 in breeding a family bloodline of KNPV Dutch Shepherds and Malinois’ is the endless supply of good working canines, from scatter-bred combinations. But as successful combinations come and go, a true family bloodline is never created. KNPV breeders, gamble on the odds, they might be able to re-produce that special combination once again, but that is not producing a bloodline.

Inbreeding versus Line-breeding

In most cases, a successful combination is only appreciated when it can no longer be reproduced. At which point, 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 the desirable traits, they wish to reproduce.

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, the 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 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 full 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, full brother-sister matings are the key to success; because both sire and dam carry many of the same hereditary traits. They may not be physically present, but they have a lot higher percentage of carrying onto the next generation.

If you would like to reproduce the desirable traits, a particular male possesses; do successive father-daughter matings. If you would like to reproduce the desirable traits, a particular female possesses; do successive son-mother matings. Then when you believe you have compounded on enough of those desirable traits; 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 twenty 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 family bloodline, to protect you’re initial family bloodline, from unforeseen complications. From the original dam you commenced your full brother-sister matings; inbreed a continuous father-daughter combination with an unrelated male. I recommend a triple father-daughter combination at a minimum. When you see uniformity, in both phenotype and genotype, begin the continuous brother-sister matings. 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 bloodlines and create a hybrid vigor out-cross; because they "appear" to be better. But they never reproduce successfully, for their lack of consistency.

We endeavour to be the first KNPV 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 thank you, to our friends in the Netherlands for making this possible.

Line-breeding versus Outcrossing

A very liberally edited version of an article by Jerold S. Bell, D.V.M. that appeared in the September 1992 American Kennel Club Gazette, "The Ins and Outs of Pedigree Analysis, Genetic Diversity, and Genetic Disease Control" ... followed by some personal observations.

Without exception all breeds of dogs are the result of line-breeding. Line-breeding has either occurred through natural selection among a small isolated population (i.e. the dingo) or through the influence of man, breeding selected animals to derive specific traits. Either way intensive line-breeding is responsible for setting enough of the dominant traits that the resulting group breeds true to type. At which point a population of dogs can be said to be a breed.

Dogs actually have more genes than humans. Tens of thousands of genes interact to produce a single dog. All genes are inherited in pairs, one from the sire and one from the dam. If the inherited genes from both parents are identical they are said to be homozygous. If the pair of inherited genes are not similar, they are said to be heterozygous. The gene pairs that make a German Shorthair breed true to type are obviously homozygous. However, variable gene pairs like those that control coat color, size, scenting ability, etc. are still heterozygous within the breed as a whole.

Line-breeding concentrates the genes of a specific ancestor or ancestors through their appearance multiple times in a pedigree. When a specific ancestor, appears more than once behind at least one ancestor on both the sire's side and yet another on the dam's side, homozygosity for that ancestor's traits is possible.

However, if this specific ancestor appears only through a particular offspring of the ancestor in question, then the breeder is actually breeding on the offspring of the ancestor, rather than on the ancestor itself. This is why having many "uncovered crosses" to a specific ancestor (those that come through different offspring of the specific ancestor) gives the breeder the greatest chance of making the desired traits, of the specific ancestor homozygous.

Homozygosity greatly improves the chances that the resulting pups, will in turn pass on the desired traits of the specific ancestor, to their pups. When selecting pups from a line-bred litter the breeder must choose pups that display the desired traits of the specific ancestor, or they have accomplished little. In fact, if these traits are not present in a line-bred pup, it is very likely that it inherited its genes from the remaining part of its pedigree and will be unable to reproduce the desired traits.

Line-breeding significantly increases homozygosity and therefore uniformity within a litter. One of the best methods of evaluating how successful a line-breeding has produced, is to gauge the similarity of the littermates as compared with pups of other litters, with similar pedigrees. Considerable similarity among littermates tells the breeder the genes have paired together as anticipated. The resulting pups will likely be able to pass those genes onto the next generation.

Undesirable recessive genes are always masked by a dominant gene. Through line-breeding, a rare recessive gene can be passed from a common ancestor, on both the sire and the dam's side, creating a homozygous recessive offspring. The resulting offspring actually displays the trait, neither of their parents displayed, even though both of them carried it.

Line-breeding does not cause good genes to somehow mutate - it only increases the likelihood that existing genes will be displayed - allowing the breeder the chance to eliminate what had previously been unseen in their particular line, although it was always present.

Too many breeders outcross as soon as an undesirable trait appears, blaming the problem on breeding "too close." Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact out-crossing insures that the undesirable trait will be carried, generation after generation, in a heterozygous recessive state; only to reappear again and again. Therefore the breeder who turns away from line-breeding, is simply passing a known problem onto successive generations and future breeders.

When an undesirable trait is exposed, the breeder who does his breed a real service, is the one that stays with his line long enough to rid it of the undesirable trait. By controlling which specimens within his line are used for breeding, he can eliminate the undesirable trait. Once the recessive gene is removed, it can no longer affect the breeder's line.

Novice breeders don't realize that individual dogs may share desirable traits, but inherit them differently. This is especially true of polygenic traits, such as ear set, bite, or length of forearm. Many breeders fail to understand that breeding dogs which are phenotypically similar, but genotypically unrelated, won't produce the desired traits in the current litter; and will actually reduce the chance of these traits being reproducible in successive generations.

Line-breeding must be made on a combination of performance, appearance and ancestry. If a breeder is going to be successful in solidifying a certain trait, they must rigorously select their breeding specimens, which display the desired trait. In doing so, the breeder has a chance of making this desired trait homozygous over time. This is the key to successful line-breeding that is most often missed by unsuccessful breeders.

The Mothersline

This article was originally written in the 1930s by Dr. Kleemann, by whom the German Kleemann Seiger or KS tests were developed and for whom they are named. It was first reprinted in the Kurzhaar Blatter in August of 1962 then subsequently translated into English and reprinted in the GSP News in 1963. Dr. Kleemann was deceased for 20 years, when this article was first published. We owe a great debt to Dr. Kleemann, for his ability to put his keen observations in writing, for the rest of us to follow.

In all mammals the females are "X" "X" and males are "X" "Y" which means that only females carry the genetic code particular to the part of the gene string that is missing in all males. Horse Breeders refer to it the "X Factor" and have demonstrated that the gene responsible for the large heart so many great racing stallions have, can be traced back thru their mothersline, to a single mare that lived more than 100 years ago. If a stallion has an oversized heart - like Secretariat - this particular mare will show up in his mothersline. The mares themselves don't have the large heart, but they carry the gene for it on their “X” chromosome. Likewise the stallions do not throw the large heart themselves.

Females are far more important than males, in carrying particular genes forward. Understand that this is true, even if the genes most sought after, were originally found in a pre-potent male. The key for any successful breeder, is to isolate those females that carried his traits and breed off, of them. It has been our experience that many important traits are indeed sex linked and carried by the dams from generation to generation.

Successful breeders realize they are fighting "the drag of the breed," which is the tendency for all animals to breed back toward mediocrity. If it didn't work that way, super species and super races, would have developed long ago in every animal on earth. For instance in human beings, it is impossible to breed parents with high IQs together to produce higher IQs. Even when two geniuses have children, the average IQ of their children will be half way between normal and the average of the parents IQs.

By the way, Einstein himself was the offspring of parents who were themselves first cousins and he married his first cousin. So much for the stories you heard in school about the effects of line-breeding.

What is the meaning of "mothersline". The idea is too often confused by breeders with "motherside" or the bottom side of a pedigree. The mothersline is the whole of the bloodlines of all the mothers, including the father's mother and the other mothers on the father's side of the pedigree; but always the mothers.

The success of breeding on the mothersline comes from utilizing very important sex-linked genes, present only in the additional DNA of the X chromosomes of great producing females. Since a male canine has 76 paired chromosomes (plus an X and a Y chromosome) the only place a male can inherit those important sex-linked genes, is through his mother. Therefore, when that son becomes a father, only his resulting daughters (never his sons) get this valuable X chromosome back again, along with another X chromosome from their own mother.

In turn, when these resulting grand-daughters become mothers, the art of breeding lies in selecting the male offspring, that has inherited the valuable X chromosome. As these great-grandsons, will be able to pass the important sex-linked genes onto their offspring and transfers the influence of the particular female, through this valuable X chromosome, to the topside of the pedigree. Which dramatically improve the chance of reproducing great pups true to type, when a breeder breeds to quality females from the original female’s bloodline. The importance of having an unbroken mothersline on both sides of the pedigree is paramount.

Pedigrees only serve as a guide, to show what traits, may be carried by certain parent. Only through careful study of a particular parent’s offspring and intimate knowledge of its ancestors; can a breeder determine what traits, they actually carry. Furthermore, it is necessary to breed, on both bloodline and performance, to achieve success.

Thru line-breeding, a breeder can double-up on good and bad traits. Which gives the breeder an insight to what traits they are dealing with? When faults in the bloodline come to the surface, the breeder can eradicate those faults from his breeding program. By out-crossing, the breeder only covers-up the faults and reduces his knowledge of what to expect in subsequent litters. Anyone who condemns inbreeding must in turn condemn the detective, who exposes a crime.

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

Our Duco II Bloodline

Duco II (Dhr. R. Seegers, Stokkum)

BRN 60

PH I 428 CL

Geb datum: 26.05.1991

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 females 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.

Bono (Dhr. H.G. Pegge, Hengelo, Overijssel)
BRN 2467
PH I 440 CL
Participant in the 2002 Netherlands PH I Championship
Geb datum: ??-??-????
Bono Pegge is a dog that needs no introduction. His dam, Beppie I Kamphuis had a pedigree that you could only dream of today. Rambo Rossum bred to an Arras Derks daughter, produced her dam, Tika Verstegan. Tika was bred to Duco II to produce Beppie I. Beppie I was then bred to Marco Pegge to produce Bono. Both Bono and his sire Marco attained a perfect score of 440 out of 440 for their PH I certification. With a pedigree this good, no wonder Bono became a legendary KNPV Malinois.

Biwi (Dhr. D. Krider, Seymour, Missouri, USA)

BRN 10705

IPO III, VPG III
Teilnahme Landesmeisterschaft in Schleswigholstein 2006
Geb datum: 10-06-2002 († 01-08-2015)

Biwi was an exceptionally well bred KNPV Malionois out of a full brother-sister combination, between two Duco II grandchildren Bono Peggie x Biene Pegge. Our friend purchased Biwi and he plans to use his frozen semen on Tica II in 2021. I guarantee you will not find anything this well bred on Duco II, thru Beppie I Kamphuis and Bono Pegge anywhere.

Geb datum: 15-07-1998 († 25-03-2008)

Max Weber was also owned by Hennie Schreur, who titled him to object bewaken (object guard) Obj. 312+24 C. Max was an influential Duco II son, via his very popular son, Django Sommers.

Django (Dhr. T. van der Doelen, Velp)

BRN 4730

PH II 454 CL

Geb datum: ??-??-???? († 00.05.2011)

Django Sommers 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.

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.

Duco II Grandsons 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.

“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

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.

Bonky BRN 25086, PH I 434, Diensthond is the most accomplished Corrie Massop grandson. Bonky was a qualified police tracking K9 by 18 months of age. As you will see in the videos below, Bonky is an exceptional biting as well.

Geb datum: 07-09-2017
Kira is our pick female out of Rico and Tica, as she inherited the desirable traits, which Tica possesses. Kira was also bred to Rico to compound even further on Tica”s exceptional ancestors. From that litter we retained Tica II.

Here are four videos of Kira.

Tica II (Dhr. D. Krider, Seymour, Missouri, USA)
BRN 34187
Geb datum: 07-10-2018
Tica II is the epitome of a true Duco II type KNPV Malinois. You could not ask for more. The only thing we can fault with her is that we spent tens of thousands, before we sifted thru all the undesirable traits, the Malinois is riddled with.

Just to give you an example of her unbelievably intense possession, here are two videos of Tica II.


Here are a few videos of Tica II searching. (We imprint our Mals to stand and stare and remain as still as possible. The clicker is only used for article or target odor, indications.)

Our Males

Rico (Dhr. D. Krider, Seymour, Missouri, USA)

BRN 31120

Geb datum: 09-06-2016

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, have a look at his videos on our YouTube channel.


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.

Our Females
Tica III (Dhr. D. Krider, Seymour, Missouri, USA)
BRN 37148
Geb datum: 24-10-2019
Tica III is our pick female from the Rico x Tica II litter. The main reason we chose her, is that she was the only female in her litter that inherited the desirable traits Nick I possessed.

Even though Tica III is triple-bred Rico daughter, she has inherited many of her desirable traits from her great-granddam Tica, an exceptionally well bred Nick I daughter. Whereas Rico has inherited many of his desirable traits from his double-bred grandsire Nick II, a double-bred Max Weber son.

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

BRN 13265

Geb datum: 15-08-2005

We believe Nick I was the best son Duco II produced, and Duco II was on-par the best male ever bred in the entire KNPV program. Duco II’s desirable traits are still sought after by many KNPV enthusiast, even thou he died more than 20 years ago.

For this reason, Tica III is without a doubt the best bred and most important Duco II line female you will find anywhere.

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.

 

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 USD. For pups born in the USA, prices start from $1500 USD.
