If you are interested in purchasing a puppy from us please complete our Puppy Buyer Questionnaire (email me for the form as I cannot seem to upload it correctly) and return it to us by email or regular mail (highlite or bold your answers)  so that we can know you better and know your expectations for a puppy or adult dog.  Also, you can request a copy of our contract - guarantee by e-mail or click the links at the top of the page.  We are happy to meet you and show you our ranch, facility and dogs by appointment.  Please do not just show up and expect a "tour" as this is our home.  I like to review everyone's Puppy Questionnaire prior to arranging visits so I know a bit about you just as you know about us from reading our web page.

All our puppies are extensively socialized and handled.  We begin when they are newborns with the "early neurological stimulation" techniques to condition the puppies to touch, handling and stress.  We continue their imprinting as they grow and introduce them to many textures of toys (plastic, metal, wood, leather), puppy size agility obstacles, many noises along with the bite work and retrieve imprinting.  Puppy evaluations are done at crucial stages of their development as well. 

We are very proud of our dogs and our ranch home environment that we raise our dogs in.  All reputable breeders welcome visitors and will give you a tour of their kennel.

For Our Puppy Buyers - Answers to Commonly Asked Questions

Vaccinations: The puppies have two vaccinations prior to going to their new homes.  We provide a detailed health record for each puppy, which shows the vaccinations, worming schedule that the puppy has been on.  We recommend taking your puppy to your vet soon after bringing him/her home with the puppy health record.  Your vet will put your puppy on an appropriate vaccination schedule for your area.  Also, be sure and educate yourself and follow the vaccination schedule that you feel is in the best interest of your pet.  Here are a couple resource links:   Here are a couple resource links: Dr. Jean Dodds Vaccine Protocols and It's For The Animals.  Also, Science of Vaccine Damage and C.A.R.E.S.

Our puppies are extensively handled from birth using.  We also, have friends and family handle the puppies, introduce the puppies to various animals including horses and cats, various distractions, music, traffic, atvs, lawn-mower noises.  We have a mini-agility course and we play tug and retrieve games with them.  They are provided with many different toys at all times.  We teach them some of the basics including introduction to a leash and being tied so they learn to give to the leash, sleep in a crate (door removed) in their individual play areas so they become at ease being separated from their siblings.  With our daily observations and the puppy buyer's questionnaire and input to make sure each puppy is fit with the right owner. 

I start the puppies at less than 3 weeks old on a raw diet &
feed a raw meat diet along with Nature's Logic and  Nature's Variety, both companies also carry pre-prepared raw line. Find a store for Nature's Variety: (purchase in advance of getting your pup because it's important to keep your puppy on the same diet at least at the beginning).  We wean the puppies from their mother at 5 weeks and begin very thorough bonding and interactive play with the group and and as individuals.  We feed our dogs grain-free kibble occassionally, but main diet for our dogs and puppies raw meat, tripe, organ meats and bonesraw.  We realize  feeding regiment is not possible for everyone to continue.   We feed two times per day.  We feed the puppies as much as they will eat and when they walk away we pull up the food.  We do not free feed the puppies.

Pondering Produce For Pooches

Each "Les Ombres Valeureux" puppy has two types of permanent identification:

1. Micro-chip: ISO Chips.  The puppy has a micro-chip implanted at the top of his shoulder which when scanned will identify him and his owner information (owner must register the micro-chip).  All paperwork and details are provided.  We keep records of the chip number in case we are contacted as the breeders/implanters as a backup measure.  Your puppy's micro-chip number is on the health record and contract.

2. Tattoo.  The tattoo is unique to your puppy and each digit has meaning.  The tattoo consists of 5 letter/numbers.   Lets examine the tattoo "OV3A1".  First 2 letters are always "O"  "V"  for Ombres Valeureux.  Next is the last number of the year your puppy was born.  "3" for 2013.  Next is the sequential Litter letter.  Example "A" for the first litter born in 2013 or "B" for the second litter of 2013.  The final number or letter is for the individual puppy in the litter.  Example:  "1" for the 1st puppy tattooed in a litter of 10.  and "0" for the 10th puppy and "A" for the 11th puppy.  Your puppy's tattoo number is on the health record and contract.  We keep copies as well as a backup measure.

Remember to properly socialize you puppy, but not to overwhelm him when he just arrives as you are strangers.  Let your puppy settle in for a few days before making additional introductions.  Also, we do not recommend taking young puppies in areas such as dog parks and dog beaches as unvaccinated or unhealthy dogs may visit these areas.  The AKC web site is a great resource for training and socializing clubs.  Also, there are many useful tips regarding basic care, being a responsible dog owner, health information, canine courtesy, lists of poisonous plants and household products, training resources, emergency preparedness, AKC events and how to get started.  There is no such thing as a dog that has too much training!  I highly recommend beginning handling classes which can be found through your local AKC Kennel Club as these classes help socialize and leash train your puppy in a fun, positive atmosphere with other owners of purebred dogs.  These classes require the puppies to be current on their vaccinations.  The handling classes are fun for puppies and you never know, you might get the "bug" and decide to show your puppy in the future.  At the classes the puppies are taught to stand calmly while being touched by the practice judge.  Also, there is the Canine Good Citizen program that can be earned by your dog and is a good first step in training your puppy.  There are obedience, agility, rally, herding and tracking events available through the AKC. 

Also, be sure and register your puppy with the AKC.  All our puppies' official names begin with a certain letter of the alphabet keeping with the French system on naming.  Also, our puppies' names all end with our kennel name.  For example, in 2013, all Les Ombres Valeureux puppies and all puppies in France have a "I" name such as Isis des Ombres Valeureux, I'Lexus des Ombres Valeureux , Ike des Ombres Valeureux,  Irs des Ombres Valeureux.   Once you give us your puppy's name, we send in and register the entire litter. When we receive each registration, we sign off and send it to you so you can mail it to AKC with your names as owners. 

The American Kennel Club maintains one of the world's largest libraries devoted to dogs, the development of purebred dogs and the sport and enjoyment of dogs. Books:  The main subject categories are individual breeds, care, training, behavior and breeding. There are also titles on the various occupations performed by dogs as well as representations of dogs in art, literature and history along with their role in the development of field sports.  There are over 350 videos and DVDs in the collection. These include all of the AKC programs as well as tapes from other sources on topics such as grooming, training, breeding and dog shows. The library's catalog provides access to the Internet.  The Library has an online public access catalog which is accessible over the Internet. It can be both searched and browsed by author, title or subject. In addition, there is an on-site index of Gazette articles by subject. 

Some of you will want to train your new dog in a protection sport such as Schutzhund or French Ring Sport or PSA while others may train in Search and Rescue, Herding, Agility, or Flyball.  You can visit my links page for resources.

We encourage all puppy owners to have their dog's hips and elbows X-rayed at 2 years of age and sent to the O.F.A. for certification.  You read about hip and elbow dysplasia, download forms and can check out your dog's parents and relatives on the O.F.A. site by searching the database.  Also, we urge you to have your dog's eyes checked (this can be done at any age) at an eye clinic and sent for C.E.R.F. certfication.  You will be doing a great service for the breed as we need these valuable statistics to ensure the health of our bloodlines and also ensuring your dog's good health.

If you ever get into a situation where you can no longer care for your Malinois, please contact us as we are always willing to help with placement through networking and we are always willing to take any of our dogs back to re-home as well.  Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, photos and brags!
