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.

WACHTELHUND PUPS

The Wachtelhund Pups  have been bred with more care.  The DW pups have fifty (50) years of ancestors which have been registry mandated hunt testing 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 Wachtelhunds.    

Can that dog hunt?

 With the 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.

  DEUTSCHER WACHTELHUND PUPS

Trevor Vom Hopfenhof and Dulcinea Boulder Brook  

Boulder Brook's G litter. 

Both have OFA Excellent hips, Eye CERF exams, and successful PFK genetic tests

They have passed 5 UKC Hunt Retreiver Club tests todate 

 

Christmas was a happy event for me.   Dulcinea Boulder Brook  had a nice litter of puppies.  Her dame is a Brandenburg Germany import, Wilde Vom Sching.  Dulcinea has outstanding   health ratings.  She has Excellent hips, and certified Eyes (CERF),  meaning no hereditary eye diseases. She has been examined for a genetic disease, Phosphofructokinase deficiency, (PFK)

and passed the test.

 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.

   Thank you for recommending the DW breed to me. What a great house and hunting companion!”

More Wachtelhund Pictures

 

I also continue to breed Boykin Spaniels.  They look similar to brown Deutscher Wachtelhunds.   Dog training is available for dogs I sell. I have  a 1000 Acre farm with land and water ponds access. I teach the dogs obedience, retrieving of dead birds on land or in the water.  Some dogs learn to hunt the turkey on flocks on the farm. Quail, chukar, pheasant, and ducks also  live here.  Wounded game tracking is possible also.
