Annecy vom Kugelblitz

Annecy vom Kugelblitz

Annecy has developed into the biting Mali powerhouse i knew she would. My all purpose Malinois is making me proud! This girl has a long list of jobs to accomplish in the coming year. If all goes well and her hips and elbows come back she may become our foundation for vom Kugelblitz Malinois breeding program.  You don’t often see Malinois in the SAR world, a few in disaster and recovery work but a malinois in an airscent position is rare. We have one, Maxwell, so i know it can be done and takes a very special kind of mali. Annecy is working in the wilderness airscent role currently but with an interesting indication, she performs a bark and hold at the subject, till called off for a refind. The reasoning behind this long behavior chain is because we are not sure exactly what role Annecy will play in the future and we want both a disaster option or a wilderness option. Please enjoy a few photos from a recent drive building session

Annecy the 19 week old mali pup

Annecy has been with us now for 10 weeks and we have been balancing her “job” training with her basic obedience. Just a little update on her heeling and sit and down out of motion exercises, plus some drive building. Love this girl she is so great to work!

Annecy- The mali who is growing up!


At just a little over 4 months annecy is  developing nicely.  Currently in training for airscent SAR, narcotics detection and service work with a recently blooming conformation career I couldn’t ask for a more well rounded malinois. This girl really impresses me with her can do attitude and hunt drive.  She is definitely not the typical over drive, defensive, unstable malinois with no off switch we have seen a lot of lately.  This girl has a bright future ahead of her, and no I don’t believe EIK9T is starting a Mali breeding program!
