NEW UPDATES

July 10, 2015 -- We have one sweet male born by C-section! Sterre, called Ripple, is welcomed into the world with special care from our Plattsburgh vet, Dr. Eaglefeather.

July 1, 2013 -- We are down to only two pups left at this point, and what a joy they are! Dino, now Sky, and Wasp are just delightful and cuddly.

June 2, 2013 -- It is full on work now! But oh so worth every minute. Little time to actually post pictures, because there is so much to teach and learn. We are testing new surfaces, eating new foods, and meeting new people. Every minute is to be treasured.

May 12, 2013 -- Happy Mother's Day to all our pup owners!! The "Royal" 2013 Litter is named! The male pups will be William Monty, and Alexander Monty. The females will be Wilhelmina, Juliana, Beatrix, Maxima, Catharina, and Amalia -- all with Tulip after. And of course, our kennel name, Fryske Point will be a part of the name!

May 5, 2013 -- Updates on pictures, so check frequently under 2013 Litter!

May 3, 2013 --After a long, long night of panting and searching for outside nesting spots in the dark (with me following with a flashlight), Tulip got down to business and delivered eight beautiful puppies today. 2 males and 6 females. We will try to get pictures up soon!

May 2, 2013 -- Maybe today???

May 1, 2013 -- Queens and Kings may come and go in Holland, but Tulip is still in charge in our house! She says she is not ready to deliver yet.

April 28, 2013 --  All is ready for the whelping now, and Tulip continues to grow in size.  Is it possible there are only four??  We shall see!

April 19, 2013 -- Today is a wonderful day!  We see four big healthy pups on the x-ray.   Hip hip hooray!

March 29, 2013 -- Although our appointment to do an ultrasound is scheduled for April 1st, I cannot wait any longer!  And today we see the heartbeats of at least two pups!!!  IT was difficult to tell if there are more puppies or just the two, but we have success!

March 4, 2013 -- FedEx has guaranteed the package to be delivered before noon today.  I have the vet lined up again to do a vaginal insemination in the early afternoon just in case the sperm are still active.   The package shows that it is at the local FedEx office in Hilton Head but suddenly . . . IMPOSSIBLE . . . they are saying that the package has not cleared customs and must be sent back to Memphis.   I flip out!   I call and finally get a reasonable person to let me go to the local office, pick up the package and take the semen, leaving them with the box to return if they must.   When I arrive, the box is stamped all over the outside, that it has cleared customs!!!!!   What?  Crazy.   I race to the vet, and another miracle -- the sperm are still 70% active after five days of travel!!!   We give it a try.

March 3, 2013 -- The package of semen has miraculously arrived in Memphis again and my hopes rise again.   Could the sperm still be chilled and alive if the box arrives at my vet tomorrow?

March 2, 2013 -- We have small hope that the package will arrive in good condition to be used in this insemination, but today the package finally has moved to Paris.

March 1, 2013 -- We are calling FedEx in the morning, because the package shows that it is in Memphis and we want to verify that it will still arrive today in Bluffton.    We are told that all is well.   But suddenly at 12:30pm, the online system shows that the package is STILL IN AMSTERDAM!   Eek!   While I make lots of calls to FedEx, all they can tell me is that the package has not cleared customs and that the earliest that the package can be delivered is now Tuesday, March 5th.   Phooey!

February 28, 2013 -- The progesterone has risen to 2.7 ng/ml.   Because we are heading into the weekend, we have requested Monty to be collected today for delivery hopefully on Friday (with Saturday as a backup).

February 25, 2013 -- Tulip's progesterone reading today was 1.7 ng/ml.  Still early, but getting closer!

February 19, 2013 -- Hooray!!  There was one more small window of opportunity for us to breed Tulip this spring, if she started her heat cycle between February 15-22 . . . and she did today!!   We are back on track with Monty and will be checking the progesterone levels next week.

February 6, 2013 -- New pictures of Tulip's Miracle litter now at one year of age are added to the "New Litter" New Homes page.

January 27, 2013 -- Why are females so unpredictable???   LOL  Tulip has not come into season after all, and with a very busy spring planned with our 1st Stabyhoun Specialty in July to arrange, it may not be possible to breed her this cycle.   Boo hoo.

January 8, 2013 --  Fryske Point receives word that the Breeders Advisory in Holland, the FAC, has "cleared" the match of Monty and Tulip,.   While the Dutch Breeders Advisory only gives advice to us, we are grateful for their second check for any health issues in the pedigrees that we may have overlooked.  Saskia and Feike are ready to give it a try when the timing is correct!   Tulip should be starting her heat cycle in mid January.

January 4, 2013 -- We have contacted Monty's owners, Saskia Riemer and Feike Wierda, and they have agreed to look into this combination with us.

December 30, 2012 -- Tulip receives Breeders Advisory permission from the Ameri-Can Stabyhoun Association to use Monty as a stud. Lee has already spoken with the owners of Chess during her visit to the EuroDog Show in Leeuwarden, NL. They are excited and ready to go. Chess won BOB at the EuroDog Show and no one was happier than Fryske Point!

ABOUT FRYSKE POINT

Fryske Point Stabyhoun is dedicated to sound breeding practices and the preservation of the Stabyhoun breed. We have two females living with us and going wherever we travel. Our first Staby is named Fryske Point Worth Repeating with the call name of “Echo”. She came into our lives in May of 2004 and has been our guide to owning a Stabyhoun!

Fryske Point is a charter member of a North American breed club called the Ameri-Can Stabyhoun Association (ASA). We believe in doing intensive puppy rearing, working with them from day 3 with the Super Dog Treatment . Then at 6 1/2 to 7 weeks, we do the Volhard P.A.T. evaluation along with the PAWS Working Dog Evaluation (http://www.malinut.com/ref/write/paws/). At this point, we have already been doing clicker training and building the pup's confidence through puzzle solving, agility, and bird training. We use Pat Hastings evaluation of puppy structure (http://dogfolk.com/thehastings.htm) as our guide in the tough job of evaluating a pup's conformation.

We are located in Bluffton, South Carolina, but most of our summers are spent in the Adirondack Park on Chazy Lake in upper NY State.

OUR MISSION

At Fryske Point, our goal is to preserve, protect and promote the health, character, appearance, and general well being of the Stabyhoun, as well as its natural working ability and other unique characteristics of the breed.

We adhere to the Code of Ethics of the Ameri-Can Stabyhoun Association, the only North American “fledgling” of the Dutch Stabij- and Wetterhoun Association. As such, we breed only those Stabyhouns that conform to the official Dutch breed standard as adopted by the Federation Cynologique Internationale, hereafter referred to as the FCI and accepted by the ASA. Our Stabys are evaluated against this Dutch standard by certified Dutch Judges for the breed, flown over to North America for that specific purpose.

In addition to the phenotype evaluation, we also have the hips and elbows certified by an approved agency to guard against the occurrence of dysplasia. The breeds known health issues of epilepsy, elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia, heart disease, and neurological problems are still relatively low percentages within the population. Still, we believe in adhering to strict rules to diminish these elements from occurring when using possible carriers.

BREEDING FOR THE FUTURE

At Fryske Point, we believe in breeding only the finest temperaments, as having a best friend and a devoted pet should be the number one consideration for any owner. While maintaining and building our lines is an important goal, we take pride in our dogs being intelligent, and responsive working dogs as well. We want our dogs to be used in the field, or obedience and agility trials whenever possible, to maintain the original working abilities of the Stabyhoun breed. Temperament is an essential part of this working ability and we start work with our pups from the minute they can walk. From 2 weeks of age, we start to build a strong and confident dog with proper socialization of the litter.
