Derby Prize 1, HZP 178, Solms Prize 1, VGP Prize 1, SW2, IKP 2, HN, HD-A1, Fw. V, Uno received a perfect score at the 2014 Dr. Kleemann Prüfung and was the V5 male in the Zuchtschau at the Kleemann.

Download: Ahnentafel

The Judge’s report from the Kleemann states:
Field work: the dog shows in the first search well planned search with very good speed, good head position and correct contact in the wind. In the second search he finds a rabbit he presides and without command the game is acknowledged. In the course of further search he comes to the hare track that he is again acknowledges. Further
search is wide and dynamics continued. In the third search in the beet is the same image. With good space allocation to the edges the search continues. In the fourth search the male searches hard for and pointed a pheasant. After the shot he did not move.

Water work: the male took to the water with one command. When searching without duck Rüde immediately went to the opposite shore and searched intensively the entire lake. In the search with the duck, after crossing the open water area the Rüde searches for and produces the duck. The dog catches the duck and brings it to the leader. A dead duck is thrown into the water retrieving and delivery of the duck was correct.

Uno is a very stately young male that is just started his breeding career in Germany. He is 48% Hege-Haus and provides a perfect opportunity for an outcross with our Hege-Haus females. When we saw him at the Kleemann he caught our eye. It was impossible to watch the ring when they were placing the top males and not notice him. His performance record during his education speaks for itself. We felt at the time that he would be a good cross with Indy.

The pups will be approximately 70% Hege-Haus. This breeding includes some of the best Zwingers in the DKV – vom Mausberg, vom Asseburg, von der Jydebek, vom Thüringer Zipfel, and von der Hansaburg. This should be a very interesting litter with all of the recognized colors – Brown, Brown & White, Black, and Black & White.

Beier vom Nordstern ZB. NR. 0010/15
Derby prize 1, HZP 189 pts FW:V, HN. HD-A1

Conformation Survey: Nice male head, nice top line and bottom line. Front angulation correct. Rear angulation correct. Nice substance. You can tell this is a male dog from a distance.

Beier has a calm quiet disposition and lives in the house with his family. When time for hunting, he turns the switch and is ready to go to work. With his fine nose and solid pointing he hunts the forests, fields, and wetlands of Minnesota and the Dakotas. In the forest he hunts with a natural close range and in the open grasslands he ranges out yet always hunting for the gun. His use of nose and desire to retrieve on water is undeniable as reflected in his HZP score of 12 in search behind the duck. The judges explanation for the 12 in search behind the duck: An extraordinary wide, intense and independent search under the most difficult conditions, without any influence form the handler. The dog found several ducks. Beier's handler had no prior experience training for or testing in the DKV/JGHV system.
