Di Casa Hesselink

 



Hello, Marco Is since 12 years a passionate, truffel hunter.  Marco started truffeling with a Border Collie that I imported from the Netherlands ( I'm Dutch). This wonderful dog is still part of our group :-). When truffeling became a more serious business and Marco wanted to make the step to become professional truffel hunter, he did a big research to the perfect truffel dog. The border collie is a great dog, but she is also really sensible. So we were searching for a strong working dog, that is used to work in cold winters and hot summers. So that's how we came 7 years ago in contact with the Australian Kelpie. It was love on first side:-). Marco is also a professional dog behavior- therapist, and was amazed about the working capacity of this breed. 5 years ago I got immigrated from the Netherlands. That's also the moment that we started breeding this wonderful breed. Our goal in breeding is to stay as close as possible to the standard of the breed. We check all our dogs on HD, ED, Eyes and heart ( Doppler test). We only breed with HD A, and sometimes B and free of all diseases! Besides the health also the working character and the exterior has to be perfect.
We are in the third generation now, and it's not a easy job breeding this breed that is so full of genes. It's still amazing to see how many differences you see In one litter. Anyway we are really happy with the results so far, and we hope to continue like this, to keep this breed healthy, happy and unique. 

Greetings, 

Antoinet & Marco 




Hallo, wij zijn Marco en Antoinet en sinds 2007 zijn wij de trotse eigenaren van onze Australian Kelpie Kennel "Di Casa Hesselink". De enige FCI officieel geregistreerde Kelpie kennel in Italië. Door de jaren heen hebben wij onze kelpies over heel de wereld geplaatst en zijn daar enorm trots op.

Sinds 12 jaar is Marco een actieve truffel jager, en wij leiden onze eigen Kelpies op tot truffelhond.

Ons doel tijdens het fokken is om zo dicht mogelijk bij de standaard van het ras te blijven. Met de standaard bedoelen wij het karakter, het uiterlijk en de gezondheid van het ras. Een goede gezondheid binnen het ras is voor ons zeer belangrijk. Wij laten al onze honden testen op HD, ED, hartafwijkingen en oogafwijkingen. Wij fokken uitsluitend met honden die positief door de testen komen.
Wij vinden het de taak van de fokker om nieuwe eigenaren zo goed en duidelijk mogelijk te adviseren in het kiezen van de juiste pup uit het nest.

Groetjes,

Antoinet & Marco
