purchased a Deutsch Drahthaar tonight

Postby Jeff in MI » Mon Oct 03, 2011 9:36 pm

He's a 16 month old fixed male originally from Von Hardwire. He's been obedience trained and force fetch trained and has had some collar training. Right now we're going through a little "new home" anxiety and some anxiety on our part with a dog in the house but we'll work through it. I live on a river and I'm really looking forward to working on retrieving with him. I'm new to this so I'm sure I'll have lot's of questions.

Good luck! Did you pick a DD for any particular reason? Are you familiar with the VDDNA?

I've been looking for a GWP for a while now. I the versatility of the breed. I'm hoping to work with him on tracking wounded deer among other things. I'll have to look into VDDNA. I'm not familiar with it.

Jeff: You'd better be careful using the terms "GWP" and "DD" to refer to the same dog. Some of the purists around here will go into convulsions :-)

Seriously though, good luck with your new dog.

Only SOME. Others ... their heads will explode.

:D Sorry, I guess in my attempt not to offend anyone I may have offended everyone! :D

He is in fact a DD unless the previous owner's kid went nuts with a purple sharpie in his right ear! :lol:

Scott: Mine imploded, now I have a little head. Folks are always saying behind my back, "looks like he got a little head."
