Close working DK

Postby RowdyGSP » Thu Jun 30, 2016 9:13 pm

Wondering if you guys have some recommends on a close-working DK. I'm looking for a pup in the Spring or maybe this winter. I am starting guiding for a preserve in Eastern Oregon and need a close working dog. My DK and my GSP will work close and adjust to cover so they should be fine this preserve season, but I definitely need more dog power if I am going to guide 100+ days per year in addition to personal hunting time. I also have my old wirehair who can probably hunt 1 day per week and is close-working with a great nose. I emailed Tyler Smith in Utah. I probably won't go to the breeder I got my DK from again. He is a good dog, but maybe not what I am looking for as a 4th dog. Looking at a female pup. Thanks in advance.

Why not look for an older dog? That way you know what it is, and what it isn't.

Prefer puppies. I did rescue a 10 - 12 year old DD a few days ago, but I prefer to get dogs as pups.

Thank you... I must have missed him on the NADKC breeders list but I found his dog page online. Thanks.

I've worked with 3 of his pups from 2 litters over the last couple years.
All 3 had great temperaments, cooperative and birdy. Nice size, not too big.
If they only had beards I'd be all over one. I'll see if I have a photo of one.

Really great looking hound. I like them close-shaven ;-)
