My father, Friedrich Lang, had the name of our kennels “zum Kolbenguss" patented in 1970. The SV entered the name of our kennels, “zum Kolbenguss" on 17.11.1970 . Due to fading health I did take over the kennel from my father in 1997. I am Christian Lang.
My father died 15.10.1998 - we will keep his memory alive for ever!!!
At the age of 10 I started to train my first dog by myself, to call at shows and to train for trials. I passed my first trial (SchH 1) at the age of 12.
Since 1985 I trained over 70 dogs for trials.
In 2007 the SV honored my successes in trial and training - I received the trial badge in "Groß-Gold" (meaning big gold) for my achievements in training and trialing dogs!
From 1996 to 2003 I was also a teaching helper in the LG Baden. In 1999 I was member of the team of helpers for the working dog classes at the SV-Siegershow in Karlsruhe.
My passion was always for both parts of dog sports - working and show.
The goal is to breed good looking dogs with a great character and a solid and good working ability.
My experience of doing dog sport since 1983 on every level has a high influence on everything the Kolbenguss team is doing.
Every year has the own "history" and tells new stories...
We would like to share with you some highlights of recent years!
the SV honored and rewarded the hard work of the entire "Kolbenguss"
team in breeding, showing dogs and presenting dogs on trials and breed
surveys and shows since running the kennel under my breeder´s name,
It is an honor and reward for everybody involved in the Kolbenguss team since 1997!
we moved into our farm. The perfect home for our dogs, our horses and
us. We have our own training field and over all the perfect surrounding
for us. The moving took a lot of time and effort - breeding was not the
2013 was dedicated to our wedding - Steffi and I got married in June!
we did not that much in dogs than usually. But never the less - Cherie
and Charly zum Kolbenguss were placed SG 1 in several classes. And
Charly zum Kolbenguss was placed in the top group wolrdwide - SG 33 in
class 18-24 months in Kassel!
2011 - so far the greatest success in the history of our kennel.
First time ever team Kolbenguss was able to present a kennel group at the Siegershow in Germany.
Competing with the best breeders and kennels in the entire world!
We did great - Kolbenguss kennel is No. 13 kennel in the world!!! In
the kennel group we did present Xander, Wasabi, Verdi, Unique and of
course Obi-Wan zum Kolbenguss. We (Steffi and Christian) would like to
say thank you to everybody involved!
And Obi-Wan did again outstanding - V 22 at the Siegershow 2011 in Nürnberg!!!
In 2010 we had great success with Obi-Wan - V 1 rated and great result at the Siegershow in Nürnberg, V 21!!!
We also did great in international shows - Qui-Gon is Sieger in USA in class 18-24 months!!!
2010 was a year with great efforts and great success! Like V 1 with Obi-Wan and especcially handling dogs for our friends in the USA - VA and no. 3 in kennel group for Lena Melendez, VA 1 for Megan Judge and puppy sieger for Sabrina Hatfield!
2009 was a year we worked really hard - we took part in more than 15 shows and won a lot of classes! Malou, Obi-Wan, Pumpkin and Quatana did really great in 2009! Pumpkin was V 1 rated in working class, Malou 3 times V 2, Obi-Wan 3 times SG 2 and V 2 in working class, Quatana SG 1 and at the Siegershow in Ulm SG 49 and best group!
We did also great with Magnum´s progeny - Uso vom Sandstein reached several times SG 1 and SG 47 (best group) at the Siegershow in Ulm. And several other sons and daughters of Magnum did really good within the season, too. The well deserved result was a progeny group of Magnum at the Siegershow in Ulm!!! This was the first time ever a progeny group out of dog of our breeding presented a progeny group at the German Siegershow - a moment to remember!!!
Interantionally we did help our frieds to win big trohies, too - VA in USA again!
2008 started great - V 1 with Magnum, V 1 with Lil´Kim, V 1 with Neelah (Justin daughter), V 1 with Rhona (Juma daughter), V 2 with Justin and Malou (all in working class!), SG 1 with Obi-Wan, SG 2 with Pumpkin SG 1. But we lost Magnum. He died 16. of September 2008 ... Now we hope that he will live on in his progeny ...
In the USA we handled for our friends helping them win titles like Sieger and VA!
In 2007 we
managed to place a dog out of the kennel "zum Kolbenguss" ind the Top 20 of the
BSZS - world´s biggest show event!!!
Justin did a great jurney to India - 4th place in the Siegershow!!!
And internationally we helped dear friends in the USA to achieve great success!!! Sieger and VA titles were the result of our help!
In 2006 we were able place great in the BSZS - Lil´Kim did very well! Juma reached vice siegerin in Baden. And Magnum and Malou were able to win first shows - with real good perspectives for the future. Jamie is now settled in the USA. We are always happy to help our international friends to handle their dogs - again VA titles with dogs from our dear friends!
In 2005 we had a lot of success especially with our J-litter - Justin, Juma and Jamie did great in shows!
In 2004 the team Kolbenguss did train Fendi von Wilhendorf - we did great! SG 16 BSZS, SG 1 NASS..
In 2003 the breeding history of Helen started - her first litter! The beginning of a great breeding history ... And it was also the start of the international connections to the USA. Since 2003 we are constantly in the USA helping old and new friends showing their dogs!
The years 2000-2002 I did concentrate on getting a lawyer ;-)))
