This is "Jeiko", or Eyk vom Foxtal.  Eyk in the dutch language means "oak".  Jeiko is a strong willed young male with an inquisitive nature.  He is the darkest roan of the family.  He was nicknamed Jeiko after his famous great-grandsire, Jeiko vom Jakobsbrunnen.

He likes to track and loves water.  He is always using his nose to follow scent on the ground, and on our walks he is in and out of the creek and the pond. 

This is Tom, working with Jeiko.  We prefer to use motivational training methods, and utilize food in teaching foundation. 

When training a puppy, it is also important to keep the session short and very active and never let them "fall out" of attention.
