VDD owners?
I am looking to find out a little more info on a VDD we just adopted.

The house was just too quiet without a dog in it.

Thanks

If you can get ahold of Bill Sands he could probably be of some help. His kennel name is Deutsch Drahthaar V.D. Grasfluren, you might be able to find him on social media with that.

I'm just a GWP guy but I might know the kennel name.

Great news!

I was able to connect with the breeder through the midwest chapter.

Chief has settled into our house like he has been here since a pup, he is 2.5yrs old.

I can't wait to get him out in the field.

Any tips not been a previous pointer owner would be great

Was he hunted or trained any before you got him? What's the kennel name?

Be aware that these are very driven dogs. Prey drive is crazy high in many of them. That is great in the field, can be interesting in the house. Don't be surprised at some point if he finds a nerve to tweak on you just for the fun of it. My GWP (has 3 DD grandparents) will go through anything for a bird. I was lucky that he understands, for the most part, that I'm not into chasing fur. They can learn to go either way depending on what you want to pursue.

If he hasn't been on many birds don't shoot bumped birds. I always try to flush birds myself when there is s good solid point. Urging the dog to get the bird up can cause it to start doing it on it's own.

We need a picture of this new beast of yours.

From what I know he was tested in the spring this year, to pass this test he had to be gun stable. I am not 100% sure if he was or how much he was hunted over. He is from the vom Wendigjager Kennel

Very nice looking dog. I'm fond of the slicker coated ones.
Since he has been tested some he should be in a good position for both of you to learn. Have fun!

I?ve owned a few dd?s. I love them. I hunt mostly upland until it gets cold and we switch to ducks. They are good at both. Good luck with your new buddy.
