At vom Erntemond Kennel we strive to produce dogs with the combination of versatility, intelligence, biddability, and companionability Our dogs are used to hunt a variety of upland game and waterfowl. In addition, we regularly use our dogs to recover wounded deer for hunters in our area.
We train and breed our dogs to the standards set forth by the Deutsch Kurzhaar Verband in Germany. Every dog must pass conformation evaluations, performance evaluations, and Hip Dysplasia assessments before being allowed to breed.
