Henry is doing great and has started daycare where he already has many friends. Here is a pic of his first day.
We just wanted to send you some pictures of
our Sadie girl. She turned 10 yesterday!!!!
We had a little party for her.
I just can't thank you enough for breeding
such a great pup!
Just want to give you a quick update on our
new family member.
‘Tiller’ is an absolute joy! She adapts very
quickly to new surroundings and seems to be
quite intelligent. She has only whined for
her old playmates the first couple of days,
but she is finding new friends in her new
Thanks for breeding
excellent dogs, and I hope you still
continue to do so.
You may be getting inquiries about new
litters as a lot of people at work have been
getting an earful/eyeful about your
Just wanted to send you this and give you an
update on the puppy. First off we finally
decided on a name and it's Gunner. We really
He is doing very well and
adjusting to his new life and schedule. We
have been potty training him with the bell
system and he already knows how to hit the
bell with his nose and goes out to go potty.
This is working great! He is a smart dog and
very handsome and so cute! As you can see he
is growing fast! We are enjoying every
minute with him and are so happy to have him
in our family.
Thanks again for everything
and I would love to keep in touch with you
and just send you photos every now and then
Take care and keep in touch.
I was just wanting to touch base with you on
one of the puppies we bought from you. Kiana
was born on Jan.29th and we picked her up on
the 20th of March, they day after our
daughters birthday. Kiana is our cabin pup
and lives in White Mountain with my
husband's dad. We recently brought her into
Anchorage a couple weeks ago and she was
spayed about 1 1/2 weeks ago. She is doing
just fine. We have her here in Anchorage
until the end of the month then she goes
back to White Mountain.
She is such a good girl. Very laid back and
such a cuddler. She likes being right beside
you at all times. She follows us around the
house. She is a good ball retriever. She is
just a gentle little girl. Everyone she
meets just loves her.
I am on Facebook and have pictures posted
there. Terri Lincoln - Anchorage

weeks old tomorrow. Growing like a weed.
Most loving and mellow puppy ever. We are
always getting compliments on how chill he
is for his age. I am quite amazed myself.
Sorry its been a while since we sent
pictures. We are all moved in to our new
house. Mayter loves it out here. He has a
great yard to run around in. He is so great
with our kids! Everyone who comes over and
meets him says what a great dog he is. He
fits in the family perfect. We have even
been considering getting another. When/If we
do we will be giving you a call. Send more
pictures later. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to let you know we think you're
doing a wonderful and responsible job with
your breeding. We have a dog walking
business in Anchorage and have walked 3 dogs
that came from you all.....Venny, Maggie,
and Otto (I saw Venny and Maggie on your
testimonials). Venny was the first of the 3
that we walked and he's always been one of
our favorites!! All our walkers adore him
and everyone always says what a wonderful
temperament he has. Then we met Maggie and
right away I knew she must be related to
Venny (especially after I walked her the
first time!). They look very much alike but
more importantly, she also has that same
great temperament that we've loved so much
in Venny (and we found out that they were,
in fact, litter mates). We walk hundreds of
dogs in Anchorage and work with many dogs
that have behavioral issues....aggression,
fear, etc. We do a lot of socializing
fearful or aggressive dogs so they can learn
to live a more balanced and happy life. Dogs
like Maggie and Venny are the PERFECT dogs
to help us do the job because they
understand when they need to ignore a dog or
when it's ok to say hello. I took Maggie
with me today to help a dog who has been
having some dog aggression issues and hasn't
been able to be around other dogs in a
really long time. Though we do our
introductions very carefully and slowly,
after just a couple of days, Maggie was
helping this dog soooo much (showing her
that she didn't have to freak out when saw
other dogs and that she can actually have
doggie friends!) and they were giving each
other kisses by the end of our walk :) Dogs
like Maggie and Venny have helped so many
dogs that we walk just by being good role
models. We attribute this to good owners and
a very good breeder, who understands how
important it is to breed for good
temperament :) We wish there were more out
there like you all cause we would love to
have about 50 more clients like Maggie and
Venny!!! They are truly a pleasure to take
care of. I attached a couple of photos I've
taken of them too (lying down is Venny,
standing is Maggie)....and there are a
couple on both of our websites too.....

My dad Thomas Nelson had bought a puppy from
you in 2001. I was sending you another
update on what Shadow looks like. I'm not
sure if I told you last time how many tricks
he knows, but I'm going to tell you again if
you didn't remember. He knows how to: sit,
stay, lay down, roll over, back up, which
hand, spin, jump through a hoop, play
soccer, beg, itch him self on command, play
dead, shake, leave it, and jump. I lost
track of all the tricks he know, but this is
most of them. He is a really good dog and
loves to go swimming he but what lab
doesn't? Shadow can even run up to 29mph! If
it wasn't for you I wouldn't have him. Well
I hope you enjoyed the pictures

I love that picture it
is on my desktop! I will watch the website
for pups! We just love her, she is the best
dog I have ever owned.
p.s. we did change her name to Sandy (sounds
like Candy) she didn't seem to mind
I'll be in touch!
really has been great. We have made a lot of
progress and he has been able to come to
work with me everyday. He is everything I
was looking for. Thanks again!
After our first week I
just wanted to tell you what a wonderful
puppy we have. He is delightful and goes
everywhere with us. Even the cats like him!
He has never tried to chase them so they
come sit near him now.
His name is “Zealand” but we call him “Fatty
Pam, Venny (a.k.a.
Adventure) has grown into quite a handsome
dog. He is admired throughout the
neighborhood during his many walks. He has
several dog friends that he loves to play
with and hasn’t met anyone yet that he
doesn’t like. I thought you’d like a couple
of pictures. The one with my kids is our
Christmas card this year.
Pam, I am so very
happy to have found Dornschatten Kennels!
The companionship Dornschatten Classy has
provided me is absolutely wonderful!
Classy has everything I've wanted in a pet
and companion. She is beautiful in
every way, has a truly loving personality,
and meets every desire I had as I searched
for the dog I wanted to complete my family.
Thank you for your efforts in producing
quality Labradors. You will always
hold my warmest appreciation.
My name is Mark Giustina and I live in
Eugene, Oregon and I am very interested in
owning a Lab. My best friend John Murphy
purchased his dog Charlie from you a few
years back. I have never been so impressed
with a dog. I would love to be able to get a
male Lab sometime this summer. Could you
please let me know what my options might be.
Maggie, who I got from your Countess/Bentley
litter just turned a year old and I was
wondering what you feed your adult dogs?
Maggie is the most wonderful companion, I
absolutely adore her and can not imagine
life without her.
I have a black lab, Oog, almost ten years
old now, son of a black lab, Crow, that we
purchased as a pup from your kennel back in
1992--she just died this year. Both dogs
are/were the most wonderfully sensitive,
bold, intelligent, gorgeous creatures I've
ever laid eyes on.
I'd like to get another pup, as I can't
imagine life without some version of Oog and
Crow in it.
I live on Adak Island, but will be in
Anchorage 22-25 October and 3-4 November. Is
there any chance you'll have a litter to
pick from? I'd really like another black
dog, with the same stocky "English" build as
Crow and Oog. Crow was by Onxy, out of a
yellow dam--I think her name was Bumblebee?
I hope to hear from you soon,
We got our lab from you in 2001 Sadie.
We are military and were in Fairbanks when
we got her.
We look at your site often.
We now live in Hampton, Virginia and have a
1 year old son. I wanted to share some pics
of Sadie with Rylee. She is so good with
