Half Halt Farm & High Hopes Kennels



We became acquainted with the Leonberger breed in 2010. In 2011 we met some wonderful Leo people and began to contemplate adding an additional breed to our menagerie! With the help and advice of good friend Lori Taft of Desperado Kennels and our co-owner Sharon Merriam, we purchased our first Leo from Sabine Klippel and Mathias Schroder of vom Welland and vom Dreiburgenland kennels in Germany. Our second Leonberger came along just two months later from Desperado Kennels.

We encourage you to do your research before purchasing a giant breed. The Leonberger Club of America has great information for anyone interested in purchasing a Leonberger. We highly recommend that you research the breed, ensure it is the right fit for you and your lifestyle, and find and purchase from reputable breeders who health test their dogs. Another great website for health information is the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Please contact us if you have questions or would like to know more about our dogs.

We are members of the Leonberger Club of the Northwest and the Leonberger Club of America.
