      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Deutsch Drahthaar puppies in MN, WI, IA ?

Recommended Posts

MNOutdoorsman

I am looking for a D.D. puppy that would be ready to go late March-April-May time frame. I have looked at some liters/expected liters but really only the ones that have web pages. I'm sure there are others out there that don't live on the web. If anyone knows of, or could recommend a Drahthaar breeder, please let me know.

I am learning a lot about these dogs. First of all, the breeding is very controlled. A dog has to pass many tests just to be qualified to breed. Hopefully this makes it easier to get a quality dog.

Secondly, the buyer has to meet the seller's qualifications. They don't want to sell their puppies to just anyone out there. This is fine, when you love a breed as much as these folks do, you want the puppies to go to the best homes.

Thirdly, they are not cheap. $700.00 and up, but in my experience, the cost of the puppy is the cheap part.

Any information about the breed or breeders would be appreciated.

MNO,

Please e-mail me tonight at home & I can hook you up with Ned's contact information in Medina,MN if your interested in his pups.

His kennel name is "vom Rainmaker" for searching test results on his pups.

I have personally seen his dogs & they are great dogs. There will be no shortage of drive in his pups.

Good Luck in your search! chrisbuller(at)comcast(dot)net

Thanks guys I will send you a PM.

I have been looking at dogs all over the web and found some great looking and I think overall great dogs. The problem I am running into is many of the breeders have the litters all reserved before the breeding takes place. I'm looking for a female puppy and of course everyone else is too.

I have found a few available but I am pretty fussy about the coat and that is cutting my options.

I had no idea these dogs were so rare and popular.

MNO - as others have said, Ned's a great place to start for a pup or for info on other kennels in the area. There are a ton of breeders in the MN-WI-IA area, and if you add eastern SD, there's a handful more. Finding a pup this spring shouldn't be a problem. I've been around the VDD for 3-4 years now and have gotten to know many people in our chapter. If I can be of any help or you just want to play with another DD and get your fix, let me know. Jake loves meeting new people. smile.gif My email is mrdba2u(AT)yahoo(DOT)com

Good luck!

After talking to Ned again last night, I had several conversations with Larry Houck in Watertown, SD. We decided to get a puppy from Larry (if he has enough females in the litter). I'm not too worried but stranger things have happened.

Thanks for everyone's advice. I'll post again when I get my pup in late May. I'm sure i will need more advice.
