We are Jack and Hanneke Otten.

We live with our three children, Pyrenean Mountaindogs ad Leonbergers in Maria Hoop (Limburg, The Netherlands)

The main goal of Symfonie van Merode is to breed with healthy dogs which approach as close as possible our ideal image of the Original French standard (Pyrenean Mountaindog) and German standard (Leonberger)

We breed very selective and according to the rules of the Dutch Kennelclub

Puppies are wormed, vaccinated and  are in the possession of a FCI-pedigree of the Dutch Kennelclub

Our dogs have a very good character, especially because they grow up in our house. We think character us very important because o the hight and the strenght of our races. For us a dog without a good character is unacceptable

To reach our goal we keep contact with many breeders all over the world

We participate at dogshows in various European countries
