BREEDING 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 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 Wachtelhund Pups have been bred with more care. The DW pups have fifty (50) years of
ancestors which have been registry
for desirable hunting instincts, and registry
mandated health testing for “OFA” non-dysplastic hips,
conformation, good bites and often times, elbow exams. I have been
testing eye Certication as well.
BBK breeding stock generally
have had eye certifications (CERF) although DW’s are not generally
known for eye problems.
More recently genetic tests are executed for BBK
Can that dog
German spirit and tradition, all my breeding parents are hunt tested in independently judged UKC Hunting
Retriever Club tests. BBK currently uses the only UKC HRC
HUNT tested DW breeding parents in North America.

The litter sire Trevor Vom Hopfenhof has similar qualifications as Dulcinea:
been examined for the genetic disease, Phosphofructokinase
deficiency, and passed the test. Trevor specializes in blood tracking
wounded game and hunting turkey.
FEEDBACK ON DW TURKEY HUNTING PUP :
“Espe's natural hunting skills
are continuing to amaze me. She sails through the woods, nose down,
trailing game, and will find turkeys if they are anywhere around scattering
them while letting out an unmistakable, loud bark to alert you as to what
is going on. She will chase a deer for a short run but I can take care of
that with the Alpha 100 GPS collar. She has busted up at least 4 gangs of
turkeys on only 3 hunts (2 killed) and has had a couple of good runs with
gobblers before they finally decided to take to the air. I could not be
happier with a dog than I am with her and considering she is all of 1 year
old I can not wait to see what the future brings.
for recommending the DW breed to me. What a great house and hunting
