My Dogs


The long-haired Scottish Sheepdog, also known as 'collie' , world famous by the filming of "Lassie" , has from origin a very soft nature. It is very attached, faithful, quiet and unaffected. It is an ideal companion, also for kids. Other dogs in general are seen as playmates.

Height: 51 - 61 cm; weight: 18 - 29,5 kg; everage lifetime: 12 years. Coat care: brush gentle regularly.
3 Variations: sable (brown/wite); tri-color (black/white/brown) and bleu merle (black spots/white/brown spots).

This male dog enlighted our family life a lot for 13½ years.

The Samoyed is a polar dog, originating from the ice-cold Siberian-Russian tundras. Mainly used as watch dog and cattle driver for the herds of reindeer, sometimes as a sled-dog and as source of heat for the children in the tents. He is roguish, playful, attached and very high-handed. It is a real group animal: the grouping-order must be clear in the family! For kids it is very kind, as long as the child remains gentle and friendly. Other dogs will not always be treated in a friendly matter.

Height: 53 - 57 cm; weight: 23 - 30 kg; average lifetime: 14 years. Coat care: brush very intensively at least once a week in the direction of the head, starting at the head and work stepwise to the back. The hair can be used to spin wool, which can be used to make sweaters, coats, carpets, etcetera.
