At Moorehaus Drahthaars, our goal is to breed for consistency in performance throughout the litter, not for one-dog wonders!
It is of utmost importance to us that all Moorehaus Drahthaars be placed with active hunters. While they make excellent pets, hunting and the retrieval of wounded game is their designed purpose. Without the hunter, the dogs will not receive specialty training, guidance and time afield and, therefore, will not reach their full potential. It is for these reasons that Moorehaus Drahthaars will only be placed with active, licensed hunters. If it is simply a pet or companion that you are looking for, we highly recommend the local animal shelter. The Deutsch Drahthaar is a dog for serious hunters who are looking for performance (ain't no show dogs here). If you find the loss of crippled or wounded game unbearable and if you are looking for a loyal hunting companion that can perform equally in the field, forest and water, then you should consider a Deutsch Drahthaar.
With the increased popularity of the Deutsch Drahthaar comes the need for increased vigilance for proper hunting homes. A prospective new owner rarely has a grasp of the importance of the JGHV testing system, as evidenced by the failure of some new owners to meet training and testing deadlines of the first two years of their new DD's life. If you will commit to work for your dog for it's first two years, it will work for you for the rest of it's life.
