THE PERSONALITY OF A TREBORWOLF DRAHTHAAR

THE ONE COMMENT THAT MOST OF MY CUSTOMERS TELL ME IS THAT THEIR DRAHTHAAR IS THE SMARTESTHUNTING DOG THAT THEY HAVE EVER OWNED, AND SOMETIMES THEY CLAIM THAT THEIR DOG IS ALMOST HUMAN OR THE BEST DOG THEY HAVE EVER KNOWN.

 

1500 OF OUR CUSTOMERS WERE SENT A SURVEY TO DETERMINE THEIR HAPPINESS WITH THEIR DRAHTHAAR. THEY WERE ASKED TO MEASURE OVER 30 DIFFERENT PARAMETERS CONCERNING THEIR DOG'S POTENTIAL WORTH. EACH CUSTOMER RATED THEIR DOG'S CHARACTERISTICS ON A 1 TO 10 POINT SYSTEM. THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED OUR GOAL IN CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. THEY DETERMINED THAT THE NUMBER ONE ATTRIBUTE OF THEIR DOG WAS A FANTASTIC PERSONALITY, FOLLOWED BY A GREAT POINTING ABILITY, AND VIGOROUS RETRIEVING INSTINCT, IN THAT ORDER.

 

I BEGAN BREEDING DRAHTHAARS IN 1968. MY GOAL AS A BREEDER WAS TO PRODUCE A DOG THAT HAS THE CAPACITY TO BE A LOVING HOUSE-DOG & COMPANION AS WELL AS AN EXCEPTIONAL HUNTER. A DOG THAT COULD MATCH THE BEST ENGLISH POINTER AT POINTING, MATCH THE BEST CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER IN THE WATER, TRACK LIKE A HOUND, AND HAVE THE NATURE OF A COLLIE. MY BREEDING EMPHASIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO PRODUCE A DOG DESIGNED FOR THE AMERICAN HUNTER. A DRAHTHAAR PRIMARILY USED FOR UPLAND BIRDS AND WATERFOWL, AND STILL BE A GREAT HOUSE PET FOR THE OTHER 8 MONTHS OF THE YEAR. 

 

DRAHTHAARS USED IN EUROPE DEMAND STRONGER INSTINCTS OF SHARPNESS (THE INSTINCT TO KILL) AND TRACKING ABILITY. THE EUROPEAN EXAMS PLACE MORE EMPHASIS ON THESE INSTINCTS. THEIR ADVANCED TESTING EMPHASIZES DOGS WHICH ARE OBEDIENT AND POSSESS GENETIC POTENTIAL FOR TRACKING. MOST OF THE HUNTING IS RESTRICTED TO RESERVES OWNED BY THE WEALTHY. THE DOGS ARE USED MAINLY "AFTER THE SHOT". A "DRIVEN" PHEASANT OR WATERFOWL HUNT HAS THE HUNTER WITH HIS DOG AT HIS SIDE, WAITING IN A BLIND. THE BIRDS ARE FLUSHED BY DRIVERS (MEN) TOWARD THE AWAITING GUNS. AFTER THE SHOOTING,THE DOGS ARE TRAINED TO FETCH THE FALLEN GAME, ON COMMAND.

 

IN AMERICA, MOST OF THE HUNTING IS DONE ON FARMS AND RANCHES. PUBLIC HUNTING GROUNDS HAVE ALSO BECOME A FAVORITE. PRIVATE HUNTING PRESERVES ARE AVAILABLE FOR THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD IT. HUNTING WITH  A DRAHTHAAR THAT IS "TOUGH" OR "SHARP"   DOES NOT PRESENT A DESIRABLE CHARACTERISTIC. HE IS A LIABILITY IN BOTH HIS NEIGHBORHOOD AS WELL AS A HUNTING PRESERVE. NOTHING RUINS A DAY QUICKER THAN A DOG FIGHT OR KILLING THE FARMERS PET CAT OR CHICKENS.

 

THE TRACKING OF LARGE GAME BY DOGS IS VERY LIMITED IN AMERICA, AND IN MOST STATES, IT IS NOT ALLOWED. A DOG BREEDING PROGRAM WHICH EMPHASISES THE TRACKING ABILITY HAS MUCH LESS IMPORTANCE FOR THE AMERICAN HUNTER. SUCH A DOG WILL NEED TO WORK A TRAIL WITH A LOW HEAD AND FOCUS ON THE TRACK. WHEN HUNTING UPLAND BIRDS. A DRAHTHAAR  THAT IS BRED TO USE AIR SCENT IS FAR SUPERIOR AT LOCATING AND POINTING BIRDS. DOGS THAT GROUND SCENT & TRACK THE GAME WILL HAVE A GREATER TENDENCY TO " BUMP" OR FLUSH THE WILD BIRDS.

 

IF TRACKING GAME IS YOUR SPORT, THEN I WOULD SUGGEST ONE BUY A GOOD TRACKING HOUND;  IN AMERICA, THErE ARE MANY GREAT HOUND BREEDS!
