Australian Kelpie Kennel
/


Di Casa Hesselink

 


 We are Marco and Antoinet and since 2009 we are an official registered FCI Kennel based in Modena in the Nord of Italy.  

Our adventure started in 2008 when we got our first Kelpie out of The Netherlands. Soon there arrived an other one from The Netherlands and Italy. Marco was so happy that he finally found the perfect breed for his work, the search of Truffle in the Italian Apennines. He searched for a  breed that was resistant to the extreme warm temperatures and also to cold and snowy circumstances. A working dog with a big will to please and a good body structure. 

Marco always had a big passion for breeding and we welcomed our first puppies in the winter of 2009. There is always something that can be better and that´s why we are still going on breeding this breed up to the perfection with a lot of passion! 

Our goal is breeding as close as possible to the standard... a healthy dog with a great character and a perfect body for work, sports and shows. 

 Kindest Regards, 

Antoinet & Marco



 Wij zijn Marco en Antoinet en sinds 2008 zijn wij de trotse eigenaren van onze FCI geregistreerde Australian Kelpie Kennel "Di Casa Hesselink". Wij kregen onze eerste kelpie in 2008 vanuit Nederland. Vlak daarna kregen wij nog twee kelpies en dat was ons begin van een  geweldig avontuur vol passie. 

Marco was lange tijd op zoek naar het perfecte ras voor zijn werk in de Modenese Appennijnen naar het zoeken van truffels. Het moest een hond zijn met een groot uithoudingsvermogen en die goed tegen extreme hitte en kou kan. Daarnaast moest het een echte werkhond zijn met een grote will to please en een goed lichaam.

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. 
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

Siamo Marco e Antoinet , dal 2009 alleviamo Australian Kelpie , siamo situati a Modena , il nostro affisso e' Di casa Hesselink .

La nostra avventura e' iniziata nel 2008 col nostro primo australian kelpie seguito a breve da altri due . Marco ricercava da tempo un tipo di cane adatto al suo lavoro , un cane perfetto per la ricerca del tartufo e per le attivita' sportive . Un cane resistente alle alte temperature cosi' come alle fredde giornate nevose , un cane semplice robusto senza troppa manutenzione . Un cane molto ubbidiente con una particolare devozione al lavoro col proprio compagno umano . Un cane resistente con buona struttura che potesse dare il massimo tutti i giorni . 

Marco ha da sempre avuto una enorme passione per l'allevamento e la prima cucciolata di Kelpie nacque nell' inverno 2009.

In tutti i settori c' e´ sempre qualcosa da migliorare , per questo stiamo ancora cercando di migliorare questa meravigliosa razza e con molta passione portarla verso la perfezione !

Il nostro obbiettivo e` allevare il piu`possibile in attinenza con lo standard ... cani sani , con un ottimo carattere equilibrato , una struttura perfetta che consenta di lavorare , di fare sport e anche mostre .
