About Altmoor Deutsch-Drahthaars

Only a visit to our website, http://altmoor.com/Drahthaar/index.html can give you the answers to all of your questions. For now, we'll try to be brief. We are a husband-wife team, both passionate hunters who, after years of breeding Brits and Springers and owning and/or professionally training Labs and many other gun dog breeds, in the early '80's found that the Deutsch-Drahthaar was the all-around sportsman's answer for a family gun dog that excelled at everything - waterfowl, upland, and blood tracking. But, first and foremost, our DD's are companions and our best friends. They are equally suitable even if you are primarily an upland hunter or mostly hunt waterfowl - their water abilities are unequaled.
VDD is the world-wide breed club of over 11,000 members, with over 1,100 members in the USA - VDD-Group North America. Both of us have served terms on the Executive Board of that organization, as well as our local chapter. We were among the first judges in the USA to be approved by the over-seeing organization (JGHV) in Germany in 1990. We constantly try to give back to the breed that has given us so much and have received several service awards from our breed club. We are the authors of The Drahthaar Puppy Manual, a book which numerous DD, DK, and DL breeders give out with each pup they sell. With a combined total of nearly four decades in law enforcement and almost nine decades of hunting and gun dog experience, we think you'll find that we are very knowledgeable and trustworthy, and have a nationwide reputation for support after the sale. We are also this continent's most experienced VDD breeders, starting through the alphabet for the fourth time in 2012 (our 79th VDD litter). We average two to five litters each year. All our litters are born in the house and spend their first three to four weeks in the bedroom, then the living room. If you pinned us down and asked what qualities we breed for, we'd say that hunting traits are a given, but sound and friendly temperament with a high degree of cooperation and biddability are at the top of our list. Our dogs work with you and for you, and will hunt till they drop. Check our website for testimonials.
Finally, as you look through this site and other sources in your search for the pup of a lifetime, you'll find many who tell you that they breed Deutsch-Drahthaars. In fact, some of those will actually be breeders of AKC GWP's, FDSB German Drahthaars, or of some other registry. Or, they are producing more than one breed of gundog. Only a VDD-registered breeding can offer you a pup which is the product of decades of objective water and field testing and evaluations for suitable conformation and coat by independent experts. VDD pups are registered in Germany, come with a registration document in the German language, and have their German registration number tattooed in their right ear. If you don't get your pup from us, at least please check the Breeder Listing page on the www.vdd-gna.org website to be sure that you'll be working with an actual VDD breeder and are getting at least the same quality pup that you would if you went directly to Germany, where the DD is far and away the most popular gundog.
