Deutsch Drahthaar puppies in MN, WI, IA ?

6 posts in this topic

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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
