Sixteen of their dogs have earned the highest-ranking titles in IPO III and eight advanced to FH (tracking).Carla, with Bram Bowie Casa de Mandingo's IPO III, Sch H III, SPH, FH, earned the Dutch Working Champion title three times and won the International German Championship, as well. Bred, raised, trained, and trialed by Carla and Fred, Bram was known for her tracking ability (100 points in the all-breed championship), lightning fast retrieves, and strong protection. In a schutzhund trial May, 2000, Carla put BH titles on 5 dogs (4 Bouviers and one German Shephard) and a schutzhund I on a Malinois.
Fred has been Training Director of the Amsterdam Working Bouvier Club and the All Breed club.
He has trained many dogs to an IPO III and specializes in working with young puppies. Testimony to his success is the fact Bram earned her IPO III and tied for first place in the Dutch Championship when she was 2 years of age. Fred excels at problem solving in tracking, obedience and protection - handlers and helpers alike value his expertise in helping them to succeed.

Temperament and Behavior problems
Our Kennel name is Casa de Mandingo's. We started training dogs in 1975.
Our first Bouviers were Arko vd Witteveenseven and Bianca.
Both were Schutzhund III. With these two dogs we also began breeding. Out of this breeding came Annabel, mother of many good working dogs in Germany. An example is Cayenne vd Pappelranch.The next litter was Arko and Anouska vd Driesneetjes. Out of this came our Beau and next Arko. We titled these two dogs to Schutzhund III and F.H.We bred Beau to Marshall vd Stadt Homberg and from this breeding came Bram.Bram took IPO I, II, and III titles by the age of two years and competed to 8 years of age. She was winner of IPO I, II, III Dutch Championships.We still have three females out of her old line and they all show the same temperament and working spirit that she had.
We started working Malinois in 1985.
We started up with Arra v Runderland, titled her to I.P.O. III, and bred her to Rudy K.N.P.V. Blitz came out I.P.O. III. We bred Blitz to different males and kept Nano I.P.O. III, and Pele and Paco BH, both almost ready for I.P.O. I.
So as you see we work our females and keep young dogs out of them to build up a strong line for working.
Our goal is to have a good working and conformation dog, because is that not what we all want? For example we had Hurricane Jane as a puppy she turned out to be the conformation Working Champion of the Netherlands. We were very proud of the work Lous did with her and we were very sad that she died a few months ago.We also compliment Phillip Safriet with the good work he has done with Khan Bram Casa de Mandingo's, Sch H III, in the U.S.A. Kahn was high scoring dog overall at the 1996 AWDF Championships. Kahn also took fifth place in the USA North American Schutzhund III and FH Championships. There score of 99-90-92 = 281 was only 4 points less than the top three dogs. Phillip and Khan also received the award for being the highest scoring owner-handler trained team in the competition! With Phillip's wife, Vickie, Kahn won the 1999 North American Working Bouvier Championship in Virginia with High Scoring Schutzhund III.
