Dutch Kennels History :
Dutch Kennels was founded by Fran and Henry Siegel in December 2001 but
our love of Bouviers began 30 years ago with Fran's first Bouvier, Eli.
He was a large striking black dog from the Abadi Kennels whose
intelligence led him to a life as a Guide dog for the Blind. Eli went
through Guiding Eyes for the Blind training successfully and was
eventually paired with his new owner. But the time he spent with Fran
convinced her that the breed would be her perfect companion.
16 years later, Fran's children, Nadja and Jake convinced
their Mother they were old enough and responsible enough for a dog and
Ari came into their lives. A loving , curly haired puppy, he soon took
up residence on Nadja's bed. Snuggling beside her through her high
school years, he grew from a 6 lb pup to a 100 lb lap dog. He was a
loving, affectionate, intelligent Bouvier who loved attention and was
well- loved by all who met him. He showed our family and friends that
being a big boy didn't prevent him from being a lap dog.
Sadly we lost Ari in the summer of 2003 but not before the
birth of Dutch Kennels. Eli and Ari had done so much for us that we
wanted to ensure the breed would continue as strong, healthy
Nadja's love for Bouviers led her to become a veterinarian
which has been instrumental in establishing the Dutch Kennel line of
dogs as well as assisting her mother on the birth of the new puppies
and the healthy raising.
Our First Litter
In October 2006, our first litter was whelped. Isis bred to
Cory gave birth to nine (9) puppies (6 male and 3 females). All have
gone to wonderful and loving homes. The owners say the following about

- He is a smart boy and extremely active
- He keeps us moving and laughing all day long
Our Second Litter
March 30th , we welcomed a litter of 6 puppies (5 male, 1
female) at Dutch Bouviers. It is significant to note that the beginning
of Spring brings another delivery of affectionate and endearing
puppies.The breeding is the same one that was successfully whelped last
year (Gale to Icy) and gave us our wonderful dog Carly as well as ten
other puppies (8 females and 3 males in all). We have sold all our dear
puppies to new loving homes.
Our Third Litter
We were pleased to announce the breeding of our beautiful girl
Lola to Ch Lothar-Penny at the beginning of this year and so on June
22, 2008, we greeted 8 new beautiful puppies - 6 males and 2 females.
The first came at 5:13AM and the last was 11:15AM. The weights ranged
from 9 1/2 to 13 1/2 ounces. Lola and the pups did very welll.
Our Fourth Litter
The breeding of our beautiful girl Isis with Ch Lakota's Icy
Ed earlier this year was a success! On June 27, 2008, we greeted 10
adorable little ones - 7 females and 3 males. Isis started at 9:20AM
and didn't stop until 6:10PM. It was quite a day. The pups on average
weighed between 12-14 ounces. Isis watched over the newborns with
Our Fifth Litter
It was very hectic here on Saturday night, January 17th,
Lola had 11 puppies - all females (what are the odds that would
happen?). The first came at 6:10 pm and the last at 10:15 pm. We were
up all night feeding them since she had trouble making milk. She and
the puppies are doing well now. All were in the 10.5 to 14.5 ounces
except for one that weighed 7.5. Four weeks later all more than
tripled their weights.
Our Sixth Litter
Again it was pandemonium here on Thursday, February 12.
Angelina had 11 puppies. This time most were boys - 9 of them. All were
one pound or greater. It took her almost 6 hours to deliver them all.
Thank you for choosing Dutch Bouviers!
Our Seventh Litter
pleased to tell you our Champion Angelina (we call her Jolie) gave
birth to 12
puppies (half girls and boys) on Monday, April 18, 2011. The
just after midnight and lastly to noon - 12 long hours. Only one
was under one pound. All went to good homes.
Why Dutch dogs are extraordinary: Dutch dogs are
bred for soundness, type, temperament, health and exceptional movement.
Our vision is
to breed top quality dogs for conformation, performance and
companionship. We believe the most effective way to achieve
this goal is to breed only quality animals and grow our puppies to
carefully maximize their health and intellectual potential.
Breeding Stock: Dutch dogs are
carefully screened for breeding potential based on many factors. Those
begin with OFA (heart, hips and elbows) and eye testing by a licensed
Veterinarian Ophthalmologist. Other health tests are performed as
indicated. All breeding stock is evaluated for structural and mental
soundness, against the breed standard. Only individuals that meet our
exacting standard will be bred at Dutch Kennels.
and Socialization: Dutch Dogs are
carefully raised and socialized to maximize their health and
intellectual potential. They are introduced to a variety of experiences
and individuals, including children to make sure they will adapt
quickly and easily to life with their new family.
The right dog
to the right home: We evaluate
each puppy's individual characteristics to determine the most
appropriate home. We also evaluate each prospective buyer to find the
right permanent and loving home.
Ownership: Dutch supports
responsible pet ownership. We send all animals (other than show
prospects) out on a Limited Registration, and take a spay/neuter
deposit to ensure only the finest individuals pass on their genetics to
are sold with contract/warrantee to show or pet home. Please email us
for information on our contract.
