I have a German registered kennel and all of my dogs are tested and certified through the rigorous German Standards. Every Deutsch Drahthaar must pass a series of standardized performance tests that are true to life hunting situations from the time they are pups in their Natural Ability Tests (NA Tests) until they are finished dogs. The dogs must also have their hips; shoulders; and elbows x-rayed and evaluated for any abnormalities. Then they go to Breed show where they are measured for height and length to make sure they fall into standard size. Their eyes, coat, teeth, form, and temperament are all evaluated. They receive a breedshow score and if they pass with Good to Excellent Scores, then they are eligible to enter into the breeding program. Once a pair is approved for breeding then we must notify the Breed Warden. He then sends in our paper work to Germany and then the puppies receive their Breed Numbers, Micro Chips, and Ahenentafels (Pedigrees). The pups must have their blood drawn by a Vet; then it is sent to a designated blood bank. I am 45 years old and my family owns and operates an Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh. I have two small children and my wife and I love to spend as much time as we can in the field and around the water with our dogs and kids. I grew up hunting for small game, white tails, and ducks in PA. My first gun dogs were German Shorthairs. I graduated to the Deutsch Drahthaar (DD) becuase I wanted a dog that could handle the colder water for ducks. DDs are also much calmer than GSPs, and their ability to switch from one task to the next is astonishing. I breed to maintain my line. I have excellent dogs. I believe that great hunting dogs are born.. You can be the best dog trainer in the world. If your dog doesn't have the proper genetic package, the right pedigree, nor the inherent natural ability and drive to hunt, then it's not going to happen. There are a lot of great DD breeders in my Club. I don't have a secrete ingredient, but I don't cut any corners and I do everything the best way possible. My breeding goals is to produce smaller to medium sized DDs that are strong, healthy, and mentally stable. Temperament is my primary concern, because I live in the City around lots of people and I have two children with lots of neighbor kids running in and out of my house. I have no room for error. I can not afford to have one mishap with a seventy pound dog and a child. I also belong to hunting clubs where other hunters are present with dogs and horses, and I do not tolerate and aggression towards other working animals either. One of the best traits my dogs have is the "On/Off Switch". My dogs are very calm and patient in the home, canoe, blind and truck, but when the tail gate drops and they hit the ground they are all about finding the game. Breeding dogs is not what I do for a living, but it is a passion that keeps me alive. If you would like to call me I would be happy to give you more information.
