Alta was the pick of the litter out of our "A" litter breeding. Just as we had hoped, she has turned out to be a phenomenal hunting companion and a valued family member. She has a strong desire to please and catches on very quickly, which has made her very easy to train.

Alta loves to hunt and is a very driven dog. Her exceptional scores (4h) in search in both the Derby and Solms are truly a testament of her desire to hunt and find game. Just like her mom, Alta has a very calm and quiet demeanor in both the home and the kennel. Alta is very well-rounded in both the field and the water. She has a passion for hunting and finding game, exhibits a very strong prey drive, is a natural retriever, and has a love of water. We couldn't be happier with her hunting abilities.

(Maggie KS vom Trocken Bach x Mona vom Thuringer Zipfel)

D1, S1, HDA-2, Fw: V

Maui is the type of hunting dog that you dream about owning. He is beautifully constructed and equally talented. Maui’s trainability and cooperation allowed him to be successfully trained and ready for his Solms in under 7 weeks. He is a natural at everything he does. His defining quality is his usage of nose.

Herzog is a high standing, large-framed male with a deep dark brown pigment, a very good coat and a distinctive male dog. He is very efficient, eager to work and easy to handle. There was no assignment as part of his training, which he did not complete or refused to do. His understanding and rapid implementation is always impressive. He is always willing to please and shows self-confidence - without aggression towards people and is socially acceptable to conspecifics. He lives peacefully together with three other seasoned males.


During the hunt, he shows tremendous hunting skills, intelligence and prudence coupled with calm. Particularly noteworthy is that he always keeps in touch with his leader.


Water working is one of Herzog's great passions. The very good nose insert regularly leads him to success. He shows perseverance and will to find, also in the water no reed belt is too dense and uncomfortable for him to search.


Herzog is a descendant of the successful D-litter from the Klepelshagener Forst. The litter produced powerful field and water high-quality dogs. Like his littermates, who have comparable test results, Herzog has an excellent career in the examination.


The pups will be approximately 50% Hege-Haus. This breeding includes some of the best Zwingers in the DKV – Hege-Haus, Klepelshagener Forst, Thüringer Zipfel, and Birkenwald. This will be a very interesting litter with all of the recognized colors – Brown, Brown/White, Black, and Black/White.
