Sadie has had a very successful testing career in Germany. She qualified for the 2020 Dr. Kleemann Prüfung. However, she was unable to compete as due to Covid-19 the event was cancelled. During her testing career in Germany her leader, Mr. Hofstetter, repeatedly stated, “Sadie is a very special dog and one of the best dog’s I have ever led.” This comes from a man that has successfully led over forty Kleemann dogs. I have often said that Graci, Sadie’s mother is the best dog that we have raised. Sadie may be better! We had the pleasure of hunting with her last season for pheasants and quail. She is really good! We are hopeful that a special Kleemann will held in 2021 and that Sadie will be able to participate.

At the Dr. Kleemann Prüfung, Darwin’s leader (trainer) was Mr. Siegfried Hofstetter considered to be one of if not the best leader in Germany. Darwin performed admirably under most difficult conditions. The first day Darwin’s group was assigned field work with winds of 30 – 40 mph survival was the word of the day. Darwin’s search was purposeful and productive. Using his outstanding nose, he was able to locate and point game under conditions no hunter would endure. The next day was the water work. Darwin crossed the pond upon command without hesitation and searched thoroughly without the duck. He made short work of his live duck search and retrieved flawlessly. Darwin received his KS.
