(S Liska Ot Vitosha CGN TKA RA SD ATD DS DM BH RATI RN IGP3) | DOB: December 2016
Retired in 2023
Liška was definitely a gift – she was born on Christmas Day! She comes from one of the top trainers in the world and two time world champion Ivan Balabanov’s Malinois kennel: Ot Vitosha Malinois & Premier Protection Dogs in Plant City, Florida. Her canine father, Ebor Ot Vitosha, was AWMA Champion in 2014, 2015, and 2016, and AWDF Champion in 2015 and 2016 – with absolutely nothing left to prove, Ebor was retired from the competitive world. Liška’s pedigree is first class.
Her name speaks to her heritage: her canine mother Accola is Czech, and her human mother (Veronica) is too! Her commands are all in Czech to honour this unique heritage.
Liška has plethora of commands in two different languages, holds double digit titles across two countries, and lives a life some dogs only ever dream of. From flying first class, to doing send outs and long bites with range-work going on in the background, to jumping off of 10 ft cement walls into the ocean, and taking down a 200lbs man like he’s a bag of leaves – she is the definition of badass.
(F Yeti Ot Vitosha DJ CGC CGCU CGCA TKA RATI RN DS BH IGP1) | DOB: November 2018
Named after the cooler brand, Yeti is another Malinois from Ot Vitosha Malinois & Premier Protection Dogs. Yeti’s canine father C’Odin Ot Vitosha is an absolute beast, and hall of fame grandfather Qenny is the one and only American bred dog (of ANY breed!) to win the title of World Champion. He comes from phenomenal stock, and has taken on his pedigree’s uncompromising, powerful, and dominant traits in the competitive world.
Despite Brandon’s busy schedule as a physician, and Veronica’s busy schedule running two companies in not one but two countries, Yeti is worked almost daily. We respect the potential of our dogs, so we make time – no matter what – to train our dogs, and this pup is no exception. As a result, Yeti is already proving himself on the Schutzhund field. He earned his first title at the ripe age of 10 months.
Sitka vom Logan Haus | DOB: January 2022
Named after beautiful Sitka, Alaska, as well as following suit of the outdoors brand theme half our animals have, we are thrilled to have this little hellion join our personal pack.
The Logan Haus Kennels breeding program is simply put, out of this world. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the LHK puppy program, it is created so that puppies are prepared to be purchased by some of the worlds finest police and military departments. Fun fact: LHK has more puppies than other breeder nation-wide that has their dogs in Tier 1 SOCOM positions. Unbelievable!
We are so grateful for the opportunity to own one of their dogs and hope to make them proud! Sitka will be raised and trained as a personal protection dog for me and my family. She will be exploring the world by our side as she grows, with the rest of the pack by her side. She is by far the best working puppy we’ve had the pleasure of working (let alone, owning!).
(SOK’s Sage TKN) | DOB: May 2020
Sage gets her name from the fly-fishing brand, which is appropriate for this hunting dog! Sage has already demonstrated her propensity for the water, and Brandon is looking forward to hunting waterfowl with her for sport (alongside her competing with Veronica in AKC/UKC field trials and hunt tests, of course)!
Sage is out of the famous “Hank the Tank” from world-class Southern Oak Kennels, one of the best-built Labradors you’re ever likely to lay eyes on. Hank snagged his HRCH title before he turned two and never looked back. Sage gets her unbelievable work ethic from not only Hank but canine mom “Dixie”, another Southern Oak Kennels phenom.

(CH ConnQuest Million Miles an Hour v Kelview TKN) | DOB: December 2019
Síla passed away surrounded by love in October of 2022 from an aggressive Osteosarcoma. This was devastating for us and we miss her terribly. RIP Weela; Dec 30 2019-October 17 2022.
Síla’s name means “strong” in Czech, and she lives up to her name in every sense! DPCA Nationals 2020 Futurity nominated, Síla is feisty and sleek, and a real force to be reckoned with – but that is to be expected with her amazing breeders. Her mother, the indomitable Khalessi, was awarded two Best Puppy in Shows in her first show weekend alone and finished her Canadian Championship in two weekends. Her father is an American Champion himself whose lines are filled with Champion and Grand Champion dogs. During her second show weekend ever, Síla – who was only 14 months old at the time, came home with a Best In Show as well as a Reserve Best In Show – we’d be lying if we said tears weren’t shed.
Síla has a very bright future ahead of her in the show ring and we couldn’t be more excited to show her off.
