In 1995 I took over Kennel Grusholm from my mother, Bodil Jensby. In her time the kennel was breeding many different races. When I took over the main focus became the Doberman which I have been breeding under the name Grusholm.
The values of our kennel are to ensure that the dogs are physically and mentally stimulated and have a good every day. The Doberman is a working dog but also a great family dog, if stimulated correctly.
It’s very important to us that our dogs have a gentle nature while being a good working dog and at the same time is beautiful to look at.
All the dog’s health conditions are continuously checked when entering our breeding program. Since 2013, we have partnered up with Kennel Dobergaarden Forever by Hanne Lundahl, meaning that the future litter kennel name is “Dobergaarden Forever”.
My husband, Hans Jørn and I spend a lot of our spare time traveling around Europe in order to enter competitions and exhibitions with our dogs. We have also participated in international championship in Indonesia with our Lucky Di Altobello in IPO3 where we got a very fine 2nd place.
In recent years we have begun to find suitable families, so-called “feed host families” who get the opportunity to have a great family dog “as their own”, however, I still have full ownership and breeding legislation of these dogs.
The dogs are typical around 3 to 4 years of age when they are transferred to a host family. We have opted for this solution because we think living in a “breeding box” the entire life is not a good life for the dogs.
Our dogs are pedigreed in the Danish Kennel Club. We are a member of the Danish Dobermann Club and thus subject to their breeding requirements.
