What is your health and working guarantee?
While we will not sell puppies that do not meet our standards, we cannot predict how a puppy will work when it matures. A puppy’s genetics may give it the ability to make a fine working dog, but the training and exposure it receives once it leaves our facility influences what it becomes perhaps even more so than its genetic makeup. We hope you will trust us to do our best to help you select the best puppy for your needs and, in doing so, we must also put our trust in you that you will do your best to raise your puppy appropriately and help it reach its genetic potential.
Each puppy is sold with a 2-year health replacement guarantee. In an effort to be fair and as a measure to ensure the puppies we stand behind are going to competent handlers, we also offer a working guarantee to individuals who have credible experience in the venue they have selected their puppy for or to individuals who are working with other credible trainers. Please contact us to further discuss our working guarantee.
When is your class schedule updated?
Because we use our own puppies as training models in all of our classes, we plan class dates as soon as we confirm a breeding has taken. We update the website as often as possible to ensure you have an up to date class schedule. For notifications of new class dates, follow us on Facebook as we update our event pages there.
What is the average class size?
All classes are limited to 10 working spots, with the occasional opportunity to audit. We keep our student to instructor ratio low to ensure you get as much personalized attention as possible.
Can I bring my own dog to class?
This answer varies depending on the class.
For our 3-day class, you may bring any puppy under 16 weeks. Contact us if you have any questions about your particular puppy.
For our 5-day class, each student is allowed to bring one dog to work with. Students who do not bring a dog will be assigned one out of our kennel. Keep in mind, if your dog lacks the proper food or toy drive, it will be a long and painful week for everyone.
For our 4-week detection class, we allow each student to bring their own dog. Due to the nature of this class, we require all dogs be properly motivated for food and a toy. Please refer to the Detection Trainers Course page for more information.
Students may board their dog with us for a discounted rate of $12 per day during class.
Does my class tuition cover housing? Where should I stay during class?
No, payment for classes cover course materials and class fees only. Housing and food are the responsibility of the student.
There are several hotels, including Super 8, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, and Fairfield Inn within 30 minutes of our facility.
There is also the Greenbrier River Campground, which is setup for tents or RVs along with rental cabins and RVs, about 30 minutes from our facility.
How do I schedule a seminar at my location or with my club?
If you are interested in hosting us at your location, please visit our Mobile Seminars page. There are many details and photos available there.
If you are interested in booking a private seminar with your club/SAR team/training group, please contact us. We are happy to set up a seminar tailored to your training needs either here at our facility or at yours!
Are your dogs AKC registered?
No, our dogs are from 100% working KNPV bloodlines imported directly from Holland. They are not FCI or AKC dogs. The Dutch KNPV program uses mostly "X" Malinois and Dutch Shepherds. We believe a large part of what makes the KNPV dogs better for our type of work is the fact that they are not kept within the confines of an "FCI box". The Dutch program breeds for working and health qualities first and foremost without regard to whether or not the dogs are registered. Our dogs are not sold with any type of "papers" or registration certificates.
What size will my Logan Haus Kennels dog be?
Our dogs vary in size but overall are slightly larger than average Malinois. Our males usually mature between 70-90 lbs and our females usually mature between 60-80 lbs. We can make no guarantees as to the size of our puppies upon maturity, but most are larger sized dogs.
Do your dogs make good family dogs?
We only breed dogs with the goal of producing high drive, strong working dogs, we do not breed to produce pets. However most of our dogs can live in a family situation if they are given the appropriate amount of training, physical and mental stimulation daily, and they are very clear as to where they fit into the family "pack."
Is there a difference between your Malinois and Dutch Shepherds?
In most of our litters we get some of each color. Often times we cross Malinois (fawn colored dogs) to Dutch Shepherds (brindle colored dogs). In the lines that we use here at Logan Haus Kennels there is no difference in the character or temperament of the pups regardless of their color.
What type of dogs do you produce?
We have our own idea of what a "complete" dog is and we do our best to produce that type of dog. Our idea of a complete dog is one that is above all else social and confident in any setting, very driven to work and please his handler. We put a big emphasis on hunting drive and ability, environmental soundness, and courage. Our goal is to produce dogs with natural full, hard, and calm grips that can take a great deal of pressure from the man. We do our best to ensure the health and temperament of our dogs is excellent, but it is impossible to produce these traits with 100% success; that is why we offer a working and health guarantee with every dog we sell.
Is my deposit refundable?
All deposits are non refundable but in most cases we will apply your deposit toward another litter if for whatever reason you can not take a puppy from the litter your deposit was applied toward. All sales are final and no refunds will be offered for any reason. If a genetic health problem is discovered before the age of two years Logan Haus Kennels will exchange the puppy with another puppy from an upcoming litter.
