Robingun Kennels goal is to breed the best Small Munsterlanders possible that are true to the German FCI standard. This breed is a truly versatile hunting dog that points, retrieves, and has the ability to hunt furred game and blood track. They also make excellent companions in the home and it was their calm nature that first attracted us to the breed.
All of our current dogs have a first or second generation line to European descendents. We have made sure that we have only the best breeding stock that are healthy, are good hunting companions and are good companions in the home. A dog's temperament is equally important to us as their hunting ability so we strive to produce truly versatile hunting dogs that can not only hunt but be a lifelong member of a family. All of our breeding stock has passed a minimum of two levels of testing in the NAVHDA system. We are committed to continuing a strict breeding practice using only the highest performing dogs in the U.S. and overseas.
In addition to providing a six year health guarantee on all of our puppies, we also provide each owner with a puppy training manual and we offer our advice and assistance in training the puppy. All of our puppies we whelp are evaluated at 8 weeks of age for their conformation and temperament and we do our best to match puppies with the prospective owner's hunting/training experience and their personal lifestyle. We want our puppies to go to the best homes possible so we ask prospective buyers to fill out a questionnaire before we agree to sell them a puppy. We only sell our puppies to hunting homes. We are members of International NAVHDA and our breeding dogs have all been approved for breeding by the SMCNA Breed Council.
All of our dogs we own and puppies we have produced that have tested have passed the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) Natural Ability test which rates seven important inherited abilities: nose, search, tracking, pointing, water, desire and cooperation. All of our breeding stock has passed the the NAVHDA UPT or UT Utility Test which evaluates trained dogs in water and field, before and after the shot, as finished versatile hunting companions as well as many other specific tasks. Dogs who achieve a Prize I in Utility are eligible for The Invitational Test which is NAVHDA'S highest level of testing. VC Joker became the youngest SM to date to earn the title of Versatile Champion with a perfect score and we trained and tested Joker ourselves. Three of our adult dogs have qualified for the NAVHDA Invitational which is the highest level of testing.
In January of 2013 we imported our first dog from Germany, Zandor vom Fuchseck, who is one of our breeding males with a genetic line that is new in the U.S. He comes from one of the most respected breeders in Germany, Uta Schumann, who has been breeding Small Munsterlanders since 1973. In June of 2015 we imported a male puppy from the Czech Republic, Ukon Eben-Ezer, that passed two levels of NAVHDA testing before he was 16 months old. In 2016-17 we imported puppies from Germany, Sweden and Denmark to further diversify the gene pool in the U.S.
Our oldest female, Hunting Hills' Nixie Rae has the best PennHip score of the entire breed in the United States with 0.17 for both hips and she has earned a Prize I in the NAVHDA Utility test. Wolfsburgs' Etta Juwel, our second female came to us from Tom McDonald, former SMCNA Breed Council Chair and the person who first imported the breed from Germany into the United States. Both litters she has whelped have earned NAVHDA and SMCNA Breeders Awards. We whelped our first litter in May of 2013 and all of the puppies from that litter that tested in the NAVHDA Natural Ability Test in 2014 earned a Prize 1 score. All puppies we have sold that have been evaluated in the NAVHDA Natural Ability tests have passed the test. Robingun Kennels has earned NAVHDA Breeders Awards for all of our eligible litters.
All of our adult dogs are hunted regularly during the upland hunting season. We also use our dogs to guide for our friends who hunt and at a local sporting club September through March.
We take a limited number of applications for each of our litters and we offer a six year health guarantee on all of our puppies we sell. We are happy to give potential buyers a list of our puppy owners and their contact information as references.
We require that our puppy buyers test their puppy in the NAVHDA Natural Ability Test and we only sell our puppies to hunting homes.

Hands down the best breeder with the best dogs. Can't say enough about them. They have amazing dogs in the field and home. The care of their puppies is unbelievable. Our pup was crate trained and started on potty training when we brought him home.

I have seen their dogs in the field, in their home and as therapy dogs with kids at school. We just got our first pup from them this Fall. He is amazing. We visited with six breeders and as soon as we saw Pam's dogs we wanted a pup from her.

Robingun Kennels is by far the best breeder I have seen. We visited several SM breeders in the Midwest and nobody comes close to Robingun Kennels. Our pup is now six months old and hunting pheasants. She was almost totally house trained and introduced to water and birds when we got her. Highly recommend this breeder.

We discovered that there are many differences in SM breeders in the United States and Robingun Kennels is the only kennel that has consistently produced pups that have not had health or temperament issues. Very few SM breeders can show how they hunt all of their dogs like they do or bother to test their dogs beyond the bare minimum puppy test required for breeding. We have owned GSP's and labs and we love this breed and can't say enough about the honesty, passion and professionalism we encountered with Robingun Kennels

We recently got a 6 year old Munsterlander, Tyche that had come from Robingun Kennels. He is the an awesome dog and has fit in well with our German Shorthaired Pointers. My 12 year old son absolutely loves him, and goes everywhere with him. He is very obedient and my husband uses him for a guide dog and a retrieving dog on a hunting preserve. Tyche also received grand champion obedience at the county fair with my teenage daughter. We love Tyche, and I have quickly fallen in love with this breed, and hope to get another one someday. Pam also has been very helpful with us and is always willing to answer any questions we have. I would highly recommend Robingun Kennels.
