Just for the Knatchbull record book:

In 2011, another 15 puppy litter from our Raven by Maestro.


Our oldest Onan, just 22 days short of his 13th birthday.  Onan's sister Jewel passed away recently reaching the grand age of 13 years+ in 2012  lovingly cared by her  owners Rob & Trish Wilson.

In 2008, Ch. Knatchbull's Bold Brunhilda who was bred to Ch. Onan of Knatchbull 10 + years of age broke Jorja's huge litter of 14 puppies record. Hilda producing 15 puppies on Sept. 5 , this is the new record for litter size for Knatchbull!

It is with great pride that we can offer these outstanding stud dogs to approved quality bitches!

Am. Can Ch. Knatchbull's Kentucky Zachery "Zach", a powerful athletic red fawn boy with perfect bite and good size.

Fresh chilled semen can be shipped  worldwide successfully to most destinations due to the new semen extenders.

Try this refresh body spray:  Mix 1 cup witch hazel, 1 cup rubbing alcohol and a few drops of spearmint oil.  Combine in a spray bottle and mist over your dog or horse.  Will not harm animal even under a coat and smells great.  I use it on my horses & dogs all the time for a quick refresh!   Helene
