Return Wachtelhund News

Deutscher Wachtelhund of North America Club

    Latest information on our efforts to establish a Wachtelhund club in North America.  This information was sent from Mr. Wolf Schmidt-Krby, vice-president of the Jagdgebrauchshundverband.  The Jagdgebrauchshundverband (JGHV) - Versatile Hunting Dog Association is the umbrella organization for hunting dog clubs in Germany.  Many of us have discussed the problems in conducting VDW hunt test here in North America.  This is a list of variances approved for the Deutsch Drahthaar (Wire Hair Pointer) and Deutsch Kurzhaar (Short Hair Pointer).  These variances will eventually apply the VDW sanctioned hunt tests in North America.  Scanned pages of the JGHV letter are provided below.

    Background information has been discussed in the  Deutscher Wachtelhund Forum .  This letter is post here for all Wachtelhund owners to read.  I will be meeting with Mr. Wolf Schmidt-Krby in Zanesville, OH during October 20th through 23rd, 2006.
