KS Quinn von Klepelshagener Forst  Zb-Nr.: 1111/18, Birth Date 23.07.2018 D1, S1, VGP1/334P., BTR, VBR, HN, LN, Fw: V, HD-A1 sowie OCD-frei

Quinn is a proven stud having bred many times in Germany and sired remarkable pups spread throughout the world. As a Kleemann (KS) dog we are excited to bring this caliber of dog into approved breeding programs here in North America. We are especially grateful to Marieke Hein for entrusting us with such a remarkable DK.

Quinn arrived in Utah spring of 2023 and was hand delivered by his former owners. To say this dog is loved by both his German and US families is an understatement. Beyond his accolades in the German system, Quinn’s most notable trait is his temperament. He has quickly adapted to being loved by over 20 kids and grandkids and if we didn’t require his best behavior, he is the type of dog that would end up on your lap. He is eager to please and adapts quickly to new environments.

Marieke describes Quinn as “very easy-going, intelligent dog.” Furthermore, she states that “during hunting, whether in the field, in the water or on searches, he impresses with his very high passion, coupled with intelligence and stamina. His predatory sharpness is absolutely uncompromising.”

If you know, you know. the Klepelshagener Forst lines have proven time and time again to develop both champions in the show ring and field. These dogs consistently exhibit dense coats, intelligent and biddable minds, and true confirmations. Calm in the home and fierce in the field. If you are interested in learning more about Quinn, we are making him available to approved bitches throughout North America.  Contact John Heiner at (801) 857-7914.

He is always there when you need him.” Karlos has been described as one that will go into the water in any weather and reliably chokes all predators in the field.

Here in the US from Utah to South Dakota, it’s noted that Karlos enjoys working in total lockstep with his handler and other dogs as team.

M: Checky vom Holtvogt (KS Rocky x KS Zatopec Daughter)
V: KS Yanosch vom Osterberg (KS Ungaro vom Hege-Haus)

Ivan von Kings Crossing

Jager (Ivan) is a great companion and hunting partner. His intense drive and desire to produce game is matched only by the elegant and graceful manner in which he hunts. He is a stubborn retriever and does not give up on finding game. He has a very calm demeanor around the house and wants to be a part of everything we do. He loves to work and train. Jager possesses remarkable abilities and intelligence when it comes to “problem solving”. He carefully processes his environment and situation, always aware of every detail.

He has produced many wild quail, retrieved ducks and geese here in GA, pheasants in South Dakota and Iowa, grouse and woodcock in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We have successfully tracked many deer. Although Jager tested very well, he is above all else a “Hunting Dog” and “Friend”. His drive is beyond comprehension and will produce excellent pups.

Astro Vom Mountain ZB Nr. 1040/19 Birth Date 01.07.2019
Derby 1, Solms 1, HN, HD-A1, FW: “SG”

M: Arrow vom Holcland (Finn vom Höllental x Jinx vom Keljer)
F: Ungaro vom Trocken Back (Uno KS vom Mausberg x Maggie KS vom Trocken Bach)

Astro Vom Mountain view is a hard-hunting, motivated stud. He has a very meticulous and thorough search with an amazing desire to retrieve. He stands in at 64 cm, making him a nice, mid-sized male.
From an early age, we could tell that this dog was something special. At only 12 weeks old, he was roaming the sage brush seas for Sage Grouse and you could really see his natural ability. At 16 weeks, he retrieved a wounded sharptail to hand. Wild birds were a large part of his training early on, and we believe that is what has shaped him into the methodical, dedicated hunter he is now.
In the home, he exhibits a calm demeanor and is very cooperative in his training. He is very eager to please, and he amazes us how quickly he is able to pick up new things.
While with other dogs, you will notice Astro carrying that calm, patient demeanor into those interactions and is great hunting along side dogs both younger and older.
