Anno 1979 and how it began...
It was more of a chance happening that I was
the first in our house to be infected with the “Belgian Virus”.
It began in 1979. A small black bitch named Anka put me under her
spell. She was born on the 7th of November, 1979, with no
registration nor immunization record and came from uncontrolled breeding.
Hella vom Nauenhof was
born on Friday the 13th of April, 1984. In that year
as a teenager, I became a member of the German Club for Belgian
Shepherds (DKBS). At one year “Hella” qualified as a
companion dog and later also passed her performance qualification.
Tested for HD, she was HD-free. We went to many shows together
and she achieved excellent results. The wish for my own puppies
was now awakened! And with that, the kennel with the name “vom
Schwarzen Ulan” began. The kennel was registered with
the DKBS and was registered with the FCI. My dogs and I went
through a rather long and difficult way and along this way, in over
two decades, I met a few, and even fewer good friends who were sincere
Belgian Shepherd lovers,
friends and breeders in Germany as well as in other countries.
In the end, our way was successful—very successful actually!
The breeds from Schwarzen Ulan have for years shown
their typical and true Belgian characteristics. This has thankfully
come about due to those who have obtained puppies from our kennel.
With my dogs they collected innumerable national
championships and over the years, multiple awards in all age
classifications in national breeder shows. “My dogs”
achieved the title “Best in Show” three times and last but not
least, there have been many national and international champions from
“vom Schwarzen Ulan”.
Even in club magazines, as well as in books
dedicated to the topic of Belgian Shepherd dogs, you can find “my
dogs” in articles and in pictures.

From them came
new breeding and looking back, I can see that a number of
the dogs from Schwarzen Ulan have become the basis for
current breeding. Even longstanding breeders, both
here and abroad, have gladly extended their breeding base
with my dogs or bitches.
Now then, the last three litters,
carrying the kennel name, “vom Schwarzen Ulan”, have
been born from 2001 to 2003 under the club membership to BSB.
At the end of 2003 I dropped my membership to BSB and in 2004, I
stopped breeding dogs; however, not because of a loss of
fascination for this breed.
| Since the 24th
of May, 2005 our lives have been enriched by our precious
Maurice and Yannick. It appears that there is a magical
gravitation between child and dog. And who can already
predict that maybe one of the two may eventually carry on the
tradition of “vom Schwarzen Ulan”? It is possible that
this “virus” is hereditary.

In the year 2008 I resigned into the club "Belgische Schäferhunde Berlin" and 2010, after breeding break of 7 years, there is intended a big amount of litters in the breeding station "vom schwarzen Ulan".
Quite a few things have happened. In June the much wished-for
and enchanting Tervuren bitch Lucandy from the Norwegian kennel,
Chevy’s, moved in with us.
And what became of
Tai’s litter? Tai fulfilled our wish and on the 2nd of June, 2006, gave us seven vitally alive Groenendael puppies.
The decision of which bitch to keep for ourselves was most difficult
and it took us a while to make our choice. Now she is our
youngest pack member: Affinity Affair vom Quaestenberg.
