About Dankar Kennels

German Shorthair Kennel

Dankar Kennels is a small fammily kennel located West of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Our kennels have covered outside runs, with heated indoor runs for the dogs comfort and security. Indoor heated areas allow training to continue in inclement weather and during the long winter months. Dan has been an avid outdoors man and hunter his entire life with a passion for grouse hunting and GSP's. Kara was raised in a hunting home that included GSP's and a litter or two of puppies. Dan and Kara are both members of the Tri-Tronics Influentials Club and the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association, actively participating in several local NAVHDA chapters. Kara and Dan have both developed a talent for training and testing Versatile gun dogs.

Versatile GSP Breeder

At Dankar Kennels our breeding program strives to produce healthy versatile bred future gun dogs and valued family members. We follow the time tested principle of "breeding the best to the best" of versatile GSP's. Dogs selected for breeding have proven their natural abilities and talents both in the field and in the NAVHDA system of versatile dog testing. Our breeding dogs conform to the German Shorthaired Pointer breed standard (AKC and IABCA) while possessing the traits and characteristics we believe should be carried forward in the German Shorthaired Pointer breed. Dankar GSP puppies will possess the drive and desire to produce game for the gun along with the natural instincts to point, retrieve, and back. These qualities coupled with a strong work ethic and stable disposition will produce puppies that are highly trainable, eager to learn, and willing to please. These traits and natural instincts ensure our puppies will excel in the field, be successful in any training or testing program, and undoubtedly become cherished members of your family.

2008 Breeding

VC Shooting Starr's Wrenegade
INT CH Grouse Point's Etta Brune JH, NA I, UT II

This is a Shooting Starr line breeding that has an inbreeding coefficient of 13.67% with a focus on VC Shooting Starr's Son of a Gun MH, NA II, UT I, NSTRA CH (Sonny). Sonny was a cornerstone dog of Dr. Jim Rieser's highly respected Shooting Starr Kennels. Sonny was an exceptionally talented dog that proved his skills hunting wild birds and in testing. Sonny earned the titles of NAVHDA Versatile Champion, NSTRA Champion and AKC Master Hunter. Sonny was the epitome of a versatile dog displaying a high level of desire and a cooperative attitude along with a pleasing temperament. At stud Sonny consistently produced puppies that possessed his same talents and traits.
Dankar Puppies are whelped and raised in our home. Puppies are exposed to and socialized with other dogs, children, and adults daily.

At 3 to 16 days of age Dankar puppies begin a program of neurological stimulation modeled after the U.S.Militaries BIO-SENSOR/SUPER DOG program. The BIO-SENSOR/SUPER DOG program was developed to improve the performance of dogs through early neurological stimulation. A set of 5 exercises designed to stimulate and stress the neurological system is done daily with each puppy. BIO-SENSOR/SUPER DOG puppies benefit from the program with improved cardio vascular performance, stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, a greater tolerance to stress, and greater resistance to disease. Additionally, BIO-SENSOR/SUPER DOG puppies were found to be more active, more exploratory, more tolerant of testing, less stressed, and when compared to non-stimulated puppies proved dominant in competitive situations.

Puppies will be registered with AKC and NAVHDA (North America Versatile Hunting Dog Association). They will come to you with their first shots given, dew claws removed, tails docked, and a veterinarian check. Puppies can be reserved for a non-refundable $100.00 deposit and will be chosen in the order deposits are received. Six deposits will be accepted per litter and then a list of interested parties will be kept for any additional puppies. Puppies typically go home at eight weeks old but, may leave the litter at 49 days of age. The puppies will be exposed to quail, pigeons, and ducks before leaving the litter and water introduction will be done weather permitting.

Testimonials (1)
Submitted by: Daniel Wall on Feb 16, 2008
Dan and Kara take their dogs very seriously and put a lot of hard work and effort into them. I purchased a puppy from them in 2006 and have been very happy with the dog. They really do care about their dogs and make sure they go to hunting homes. They have continued to assist in training and are always a phone call away.

If you are looking for a hard working gundog, I highly recommend Dankar Kennels!
