This Spring’s breeding will be a repeat breeding. The Sire is HRCH Brandywine’s Buddy 4 Luv and Boulder Brook’s Kaycee Gold. Both dogs have OFA hip tests, eye certified, patella certified, and heart certified. 

Buddy recently earned the top rated Hunting Retriever Champion.  Kaycee has UKC Started title, AKC Junior and Senior hunter titles.

 

Last year’s litter had excellent  genetic profiles  with few  carriers, and “ONE PERFECT PUPPY” Boulder Brook Blue Sky had no carriers in Pawprint’s genetic panel for Boykin Spaniels. Further Blue has passed his Cardiac certification, his patella certifications, and two eye certifications.  His pre-liminary hip exam was rated OFA Good.

DEUTSCHER WACHTELHUND

  

 

 

The Deutscher Wachtelhund is a 300 year old breed developed in the forests of Germany as a versatile hunting dog. It ranges in weight from 44 – 64 pounds.   It is a water lover, and an excellent duck retriever. The name in German means Quail dog. It is reputed to be the original spaniel.

The DW flushes game like a spaniel, and tracks like a hound making voice or giving tongue on the trail. It is a courageous dog used to hunt wild boars in Germany and bears in Canada. It retrieves both feathered and fur game. It is renown for its tracking ability of game such as the wild boar, and following wounded game blood trails. The Wachtelhund has a nose as good as a bloodhound and proves it in advanced hunting tests by tracking 40 hour old blood trails.

Although there are no stories concerning the Wachtelhund turkey hunting in Germany,  the Wachtelhund is building its own legends as a turkey dog here in the United States. Several hunters have bagged  20-24 turkeys in several states each year for several years.   A liver brown dog does not need a camo bag to hide  white spots like  droppers from pointer- setter crosses. 

 The German breeding practices are highly defined and strictly enforced.  Since 1965 the DW registry (VDW) enforces a breed order that requires both excellent health and proven hunting skills before the dogs may be bred.

The DW tracks miles after its game.  It will hunt head high in the air scent or nose close to ground. The DW is an independent thinker hunting alone. The DW makes the voice on the trail  when it finds the game. When the flock is located  you know where it is.

  anilineBREEDING PHILOSOPHY.  I breed my dogs for hunting skills, and also require they be healthy with good hips, heart,  and eyes certified, as well as being sociable and friendly.  This difficult task results in my having very few dogs and only a few quality litters. After 2 years of growth, training and hunt testing, and medical testing, I cull the dogs  before breeding whenever they do not meet my criteria.  The resulting pup from such tested  quality parents should grow into  a healthy top notch hunting and companion dog.  The Boykin pup of untested parents has a good chance to suffer and require, expensive eye,  hip or heart surgery costing many times any savings on a pup. Costs of eye surgery $1500, single hip surgery $2000, and heart surgery of $5,000 are common.

 

Genetic Tests are a major need for Boykins which demonstrated health problems caused by  carrier genes in the parents.

Almost all Boykins are carriers of  genes which can doom a puppy to a life of illness or an earlier death. By use of genetic testing, Boulder Brook Boykins are bred to avoid genetic carrier health problems.

 CAUTION:  BUY PUPS ONLY FROM TESTED PARENTS.
