My name is Jeanine Oostveen. I am a mom, wife, pharmacist and a duck dog enthusiast. I love training and dog photography in my spare time. My husband, son and I love to attend dog shows together. I have competed with my tollers in conformation, hunt tests, obedience, agility, dock diving, rally, fast cat and barn hunt. My dogs can really do it all and they are so easy to live with.

I began breeding under the mentorship of Kathy Koebensky-Como and her late Husband, Jamie, who founded Vermilion Tollers in 1995. Since then, they have been breeding the ultimate versatile Tollers. I strive to continue the legacy of the Vermilion name. You can rest assured that my knowledge of the breed comes from mentors who have been involved in tollers since before their recognition by the AKC
I am constantly educating myself on structure, breeding and pedigree theories through seminars and online classes. My breed knowledge is extensive and my dogs have some of the best temperaments I have ever seen in tollers. I strive to ensure that the the hunting instinct is preserved on my pups, and introduce them to birds very early.
