About us

About us

We are André and Helga Vriend, we live with our daughters Lianne en Mariëlle in Ruinen. The dogs are an important part of our life. We all have our own interests if it is about animals. We like to have them around as a friend. André and Lianne like to do Hoopers and agility. And Helga like to do track and has an nose work. Mariëlle likes to make her own trail and do things without any pressure. We live close to Dwingelderveld, it’s a big forest. We like to walk there with our dogs. The dogs can swim here, that is something that we do a lot with our dogs.

What we think that is important.

The health, character, the breed standard, and having fun with our dogs is the most important thing to us.

We’re a member of the recognized breed club of the Netherlands.

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Club Holland. We do shows in Holland and in other countries. And we will only breed with the rules of “Raad van beheer”. You can find us on their website with the number 26945 “From the Dutch friends”.
