She is soooo adorable!  Here's a picture of my happy kids at the Delta Cargo area just moments after realizing the surprise!  We are naming her Dakoda.  She is so sweet just like you said and very playful.  The crate was well kept and very clean.
 Anyways after waiting for 8 months for her, I'm glad I did.  She is beautiful. Thanks for giving her to us.

Hi Kathy!
Sarah Titone here - Einstein is doing great with everything. I am looking into joining the Arizona Shutzhund club becuase I think Einstein would LOVE it. I've been talking to Victoria (of Vicaral Dobermans) who runs the club, and when I told her where I got Einstein, she had lots of praise for you! I attached her email below, so you can see. Of course I agree too! He was wonderfully started and has lots of energy for agility or schutzhund. I'm learing more and more about shutzhund - it is such a great sport! 
Anyway, I just thought you'd like to know that you have another fan out there. (see below)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!
-Sarah, James, and Einstein

Hi Kathy, 
 
I just wanted to let you know that my bitch that I got from you, Leyna now has BH and a WH.  Leyna, (Elma Legard)  is from the E litter a couple of years ago.  We received the BH last spring and the WH this last weekend.  I am almost 7 months pregnant and still worked through that WH title, YEH!!  Due to the baby coming I am going to trial for a VPG 1 this next fall instead of spring.  She is pretty much ready now though.  We will also being doing some stuff in the 2006 UDC Nationals conviently located only 15 minutes away from our house. I at least know we will be trying for a WAC and maybe some conformation and working titles.  I am also emailing you some new pictures from this last weekend when she was doing the WH excercises.  
 
I have heard that some people have been trying to contact me for reference from your testimonials section of the Legard website.  Here is my updated information.  My email address is kendallsfloors@yahoo.com . And my phone # is 720-560-8145.  We are soooo happy with our little girl that I only have great things to say about you and your breeding.
 Thank you, 
 Melissa Kendall


Hi Kathy,
         Its been a long time since I have been in contact with you, as you may remember I purchased a pup (Valkyrie) from Frona's E litter back in early 2003. 
 Valkyrie is doing well. He has grown into a very impressive and protective dog.  I could walk him just about anywhere here in Vegas, day or night, and feel completely safe and I can not even begin to count the number of people who have actually pulled over to express their amazement at how beautiful he is. We get thumbs up almost everywhere we go. He is just an incredible dog and he definately has more personality than any other dobe I have encountered.
 Happy Holidays to You and Yours.
 Take Care,
 Jen Carlisle

Training for the hearing impaired
Hi Kathy,
 
I didn't know you had changed email addresses.  I sent some stuff a year or so ago, but it probably went into the great electronic wasteland somewhere.
 
Chancy is absolutely a wonderful dog.  I love him to pieces.  He has no aggression of any type, has a fan club of people and small children in my neighborhood, gets his own Christmas presents and gifts from the neighbors, and is friendly to every person and dog that he meets.  (He also has his own recliner, which he staked out when he was barely big enough to climb up into it, and even though he is full grown now and his head hangs off one arm rest and his feet off the other, that is still his favorite sleeping place.)
 
He loves bass fishing and camping.  I converted my oldest vehicle into an over-nighter type camper and that is where we spend the nights when camping.  It sure is nice to have him along to alert me when things are stirring around out there in the dark.
 
I love to hunt arrowheads, and so does he.  It took him no time at all to figure out what I was doing when I picked up funny looking rocks out in the fields.  My friends call him my "arrowhead-sniffin' dawg."  And hey, he gets lucky once in awhile.
 
You won't believe it, but Chancy scratched this point out from the top of a ditch.
 
Good luck and take care of yourself,
Glenn
Hi, Kathy,
This picture was taken when Chancy was 18 months old.  Yep, he is a big boy,
and he is even bigger now.  On the day he reached 21 months, he already
weighed 96.5 pounds of solid muscle.
He is one fantastic animal, incredibly intelligent, friendly and loveable to
everybody.  I have never heard him growl.

What a great roommate--same interests, same IQ, same hygenic and social
habits--hey, we are very compatible!  Plus, he can hear a lot better than I
can....
Glenn

Thank you!

 I thought that you may like updates on how my girl is doing.  I have named her Leyna, it means little angel in German. We will be going for our BH this May, and hopefully all goes well, and her Schutzhund I this fall.  Her protection, obedience and tracking is coming along great!  I train with my main club once a week and we train with Hartmutt Beckmanns club once a month.  I also train her in obedience once a week at a private training center.  We just got our pictures all over their website, that web site address is www.coloradocanineacademy.com if you would like to see them.  Just look in the photo gallery under obedience pics.

Our Jasper has been with us now over 4 years, and we love 
her so much. Just wanted you to see how much she has grown. She is a house dog, has her own couch in the dining room, and loves to be right in the middle of everything.
We decided not to breed her, she has gained weight since she's been fixed. She's the light of our lives.
Thanks for being such a great breeder!!

 Our Red Female Doberman puppy has a mental issue.  Sassy seems to think she's suppose to Attack & Kill/Destroy:

1. The Dust Mop: In a 1948 Craftsman House with all wooden floors. Sweeping up the floors can be a Real Chore. Since you're dragging a 25 lbs Doberman Puppy around.

2. The Duster: Again Same Problem only Vertical now instead of Horizontal. Good thing we only have a few Blinds left to replace in the house with curtains.

3. Dad's Shop & Patio Push Broom: The minute I grab it she's there waitng to attack it. Never mind Food or playing with Buster. Oh no!! She's gonna get a teach it a lesson.

4. The Furry Car/Jeep Wash Mitten: Right now we're on our 3rd on since her arrival. She's shares that with Buster. And then we get to pick up all the pieces scatter where ever. If I set it down while washing the cars and turn my back. Its gone in the Blink of an eye. So far its been safe on top of ladder in the garage. But last week Lourdes caught her trying to climb the ladder.

 No need to advised. I just wanted to share what a bundle of JOY she has become in our lives. Thanks again for her

Take care
Kelly & Lourdes


Hey Kathy, Sorry I haven't gotten in touch with you sooner. My family is still very interested in getting another wonderful companion. I definitely want a Doberman from you. Count was so very wonderful. He had the best temperament and was wonderful with my children. He was awesome. He was a part of our lives for eleven years. I think we are ready to go forward with another pet. I was wondering if you had any adults that are good with children and would make a good companion. We want only a companion. We don't want a show Doberman or a Doberman to breed. If you get one or have one in mind please let me know. Thanks, and have a merry Christmas.  Jason

Kathy,
I just wanted to give you a quick update.
Ninoah is doing GREAT!!!   What an awesome pup.   Her ears are basically standing on their own after only a couple of tapings.  I’m going to tape them again to fine tune a slight outward bend, but they haven’t “crashed”.
She’s a quick learner……. I guess we are too, because she’s working on training us just as much as we are with her.
She plays endlessly with Tayla and Chevayo, the others sort of go about their business.   Chevayo is convinced that he’s got himself a new girlfriend.  They sleep curled up together, etc.
 I need to get you some pictures……ASAP
I have to run for now.
Thanks again.

   I just wanted to check in and let you know that Churchill (aka Burt) is
  doing spectacular. We have had some rocky times to be sure, but he is
turning out to be a wonderful dog. He still has his moments when he tests
me, but on the whole we are getting along well. He listens great, gets along
with other people and dogs. Plus he is beautiful and gets attention everywhere he goes.
 Hope you are well.
Thank you

Kathy:
 
I have to compliment you on not just the quality of this amazing dog, but the temperment as well.  I am now convinced that the Doberman (at least yours) are the most loving animals ever.  Colorado is known as Golden Retriever territory, for their friendly nature.  I used to train and show Goldens, but hands down, Dobermans are equally affectionate but really much smarter.
 
Midnight is doing incredibly well.  We are having strange weather (lightning, thunder and alot of rain).  He is hardly afraid of anything new other than the stairs in the house.  He loves being with us so much that he whines and barks when he is in his crate, but quickly calms down.  I never did crate training, but truly believe it is good both for the dog and the family as each can appreciate one another's space.  
 
We had over seven children come over and Midnight played soccer with the kids.  The adults (who have Goldens) were amazed at his intelligence.  You must have started training him as I have almost gotten him to sit on command.  He also has had only one potty accident and it was entirely my fault :)
 
I want you to know that we have done extensive research on training and socialization.  I am excited working with Midnight as he understands come and stay better than some young adults.  We feel blessed to have him in our life and assure you that he is getting more love than you can imagine.  We are setting boundaries and using positive enforcement to create boundaries.
 
We will send pictures in the future and please feel free to use us as a reference.
 
Kindest Regards,
Bonnie

Hi Kathy:
 
Midnight arrived safe and sound.  You are so right about how happy he is.  He came right out of the crate and ran over to the kids...kisses all over.  He is so handsome and sweet.  He went right in our big back yard and is so excited with the kids.  Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful gift.  He really is so spectactular to look at and seems extra sweet.  He did not soil the crate at all...went right in the backyard after we let him out.  He will be the most spoiled dog in the world.
 
We will take pictures this weekend and let you know how he is progressing.  
Again, thank you so much and I can see why you will miss him...what a sweetie.
 
Kindest Regards,
Bonnie 

Kathy,

Thanks for checking in with us!  We are doing great and so is Jedi.  He has
grown to be one of the best looking Dobermans I've personally seen, and
while I am biased, I think its just true.  We attended a dog show recently
(the largest held in the state of Minnesota), and of the 25 Dobermans
shown, I can honestly say I think we could have competed with any of them.
I'm not trained as a judge, but he clearly is the result of true
professional breeding, and we thank you sincerely for that.

He is a brilliant dog--he learns as fast as we can teach him, and we often
get the feeling that he understands us when we talk to him.  We've never
specifically trained him to know what "food" is, or what a "vitamin" is
(NuVet, of course), but he just knows.  He knows the difference between his
"Rotty" (a stuffed rottweiler we bought him), his "Coon" (stuffed raccoon),
his "Monkey" (stuffed monkey), his "Bunny" (guess what that one is), etc.,
but we've never specifically taught him.  A simple "Good Boy!!!" and he
learns.  WOW!!!  Our challenge really is just to keep up with him.  He's a
sponge.  A final comment on his learning--we never trained him to hold his
bladder during the day while we were gone.  We had put out training pads
for him to use, and he did use them, but at about 5 months we came home one
day and he had held his bladder all day.  We praised him for that, and he's
never needed a training pad since.  He just learned to hold it--like he
knew it was better for him and for us.

Last, I need to mention his affectionate qualities.  I've spoke with lots
of Doberman owners, and it sounds like he is no different--he truly is a
"velcro" dog.  He loves to lean slightly against us when we are nearby, or
loves to just rest his head on our leg as we sit down.  He's not allowed to
sit on furniture based on our knowledge about dominant dog behavior
problems, but we do allow him to do rest his head on our leg (unless we are
eating dinner).  He goes everywhere with us, and loves it.  We took him on
a 10hr road trip to see Ann's family, and he was just thrilled to be along
for the ride with us (of course he was allowed to go potty when we stopped
for gas).  He's a member of our family, and our "only child".  He's a great
watch dog, and has a truly impressive bark.  At 9 months he's grown to be a
very impressive dog, and is full of muscle.  He's a teddy bear, but sure
can intimidate people who come to the door.  He melts when he sees
"grandma" and gets excited to see friends, but is very protective of the
house we live in, and we love that.  We are thinking of starting Schutzhund
this spring to see if we can get him into that as we recognize that to be a
great thing for him and for us.  We'll see where that goes.
I've included pictures.  Feel free to use any of this on your website, if
you'd like.  We can't thank you enough for such a great companion!
Very best regards,

Craig Sykora

Kathy-
  Hi!  I hope everything is going well.  Jedi is doing great and getting
bigger everyday.  He's a beautiful pup and we get compliments all the time.
 He can now "come", "sit", "down", "shake", "shake other hand".  He's
starting to "heel". 
 I was too excited to not email you back because I have pictures of Jedi!!!  They are attached to this email.  By the way, housebreaking has been great.  We believe that he understands the indoor/outdoor method fairly well now.  We've basically had no accidents in the house for almost two weeks now.  Puppy kindergarten was fun.  Jedi is not a very high strung puppy around other dogs, so we were really pleased with his gentlemen like demeanor.  He's only high strung & bity around us!  There are two other dobies in the class with us!  I have to say that Jedi looks different then they do - good different.   Blessings to you too,
Ann & Craig

Kathy,
By now you are not only exhausted by all of your responsibilities as a
breeder, but by the issue with shipping our little guy.  I wanted to send
you a note to let you know several things to make you feel better about the
situation. First and foremost he is doing great.  We were so nervous that he'd be
a upset after all of the screw-ups that occurred.  Not only was he not in
bad shape, but he seemed like "no big deal, what's next?".  He is such a
confident little guy!  I was the first one to get to the crate as the
airline guy came in with it, and I stuck my face down to look it (very
nervous about his condition) and he marched up to the crate door and when I
opened it a crack and stuck my hand down for him to smell it he immediately
licked my hand as to say "hello there".  At the bottom I attached a .pdf
file (so it would be less painful to download) as evidence of his great
condition. He is a wonderful little Doberman.  He doesn't complain about anything,
and just loves us and spending time with us.  We spent all day yesterday
outside playing, going potty, etc. (between naps).  He chased a little
ball, by the end of the day was responding to the "come" command, and
really knew that we were his new best friends.  I have to really compliment
your skill as a breeder in producing such a wonderful dog.   He sure does show the results of your
investment into him, though, and we immediately recognized your had work.
Enough for now, you're busy, and no need to respond.  This is mostly an
"FYI" message, and a "thank you" message.  Have a great day, and we will be
sharing more as he develops!

Hi all! Here are the long awaited photos of our new puppy, Einstein. He flew in from Birmingham yesterday, and seemed rather unphased by the whole thing. He loves his crate now, and will happily jump right in it! He had his ears cropped on the 19th, so he still has to wear his e-collar and an ear cone. He will look much better in a week once it all comes off.
He is a real sweet heart, not at all over-active (yet?), and a very thoughtful dog. Before he does anything new or walks into uncharted territory, he just stops for a minute and looks at the whole situation. You can almost see those little gears cranking in his head.
He seems to be well house-trained already (no mistakes yet, and he even whined at the door once to tell me he had to go out), and he slept the whole night through. Maybe it's just jet-lag and stress, but so far so good.
I hope y'all can come out and meet this handsome man some time!
Us people are doing well too, and delighted to have our new pup. This is just way too much fun!
Miss you!

Yes, go right ahead and put me in your testimonials. Mark me down as a 100% satisfied puppy owner! (especially with all of the flight troubles we went through :-)
He ate up all of his lunch and now he's found a good stick from outside that he's trying to gnaw on. Those teeth must be coming in!
I'll send more pictures soon.
Thanks again,
-Sarah
Hi Kathy!
Sarah Titone here - Einstein is doing great with everything. I am looking into joining the Arizona Shutzhund club becuase I think Einstein would LOVE it. I've been talking to Victoria (of Vicaral Dobermans) who runs the club, and when I told her where I got Einstein, she had lots of praise for you! I attached her email below, so you can see. Of course I agree too! He was wonderfully started and has lots of energy for agility or schutzhund. I'm learing more and more about shutzhund - it is such a great sport! 
Anyway, I just thought you'd like to know that you have another fan out there. (see below)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!

Presto  and Fee Vom Maerkishen puppy


 She's very beautiful, and I believe she'll do well. I work with her training, and she learns so extremely fast. She surprises me. She's with me so much, that she just knows what to do without me even telling her. She rarely lets me out of her sight, and I don't let her out of my sight. I Love her so dearly. I don't know what I would do if something happened to her. She sleeps with me on my side of the bed every night.

I was just letting you know that we came up with a name Da Boo. And he is wonderful. He is so sweet and he was able to walk on a lesh and has not gone to the bathroom inside at all. He has been going out=) I took him to the vet this morning which he whinned the whole way there. And when they came to get him he hid behind my leg. But other than that he has been very playful!!!!!!=) We just love him. I will keep you up to date.

Hi Kathy, 

I can’t get over how well you nailed her personality. She is exactly what we wanted and have never been happier. You have a customer for LIFE!

I would like to provide you with a reference statement for your website.

Reference:
I would like to thank you for Cleopatra. When we told you what we were looking for, you indicated she would be the best choice for us. I have never had a breeder be so spot on with the personality and temperament. Cleo is everything we wanted and more. She is a true member of our family and we can’t image our lives without her. You have a customer for LIFE! Thank you for everything.

P.S. As a side note, her trainer is so impressed with her she is thinking about getting one of your puppies. She can’t get over how beautiful she is both inside and out. 

Thank you for everything. I’ll be keeping you in mind as we are still toying with the idea of getting her a companion later this year (or early next year).
