Our show news

year 2015

This year came to an end, and we are very pleased with the results we booked this year, with winning Best of Breed at the Dutch & Belgium National Speciality as also Best of Breed winning at the biggest ‘Winner’ Dogshows from Holland & Belgium.

We finished the Number 1 and 2 dog from the Netherlands this year, like we did do also in 2014 with Carmichael’s For Your Eyes Only and Carmichael’s Dorien Rose, brother and sister from our 2012 litter!

Another title we are very proud off, is finishing this year the French beauty championship with Rose as the first Dutch bred amstaff ever in this country.

We want to thank all the judges who thought so highly about our dogs, as also co-owners and friends who helped us in having a great year!

We want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2016!!!
