The Deutsch-Drahthaar was created in the late 19th century by a small group of dedicated breeders who had set out to create a hunting dog breed that would satisfy all aspects of German hunting. Even though many people felt that there were already enough versatile breeds, this group of breeders succeeded in creating a versatile hunting dog that could generally outperform the breeds from which it came. The breed was called the Deutsch-Drahthaar, and the group of original breeders founded the Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar (VDD) in 1904. In 1971, a group brought the VDD to the United States.
We will gladly help anyone wanting to test or needing help in the training area. We don't claim to be pro's, but our dogs spend over 200 days a year in the field, so we see a wide variety of game and hunting applications for the dogs. We hunt upland birds for some of the hunting operations here. Waterfowl on the state impoundments along the North Carolina coast, and we hunt for the local landowners and farmers as depredation/extermination hunters on things like nuisance wild boar, deer, etc...With doing all of this we hope to breed and continue the TRUE VERSATILITY in the drahthaar.....
