History of the Small Munsterlander:
The SM originated in the Munster region of Northern Germany over 500 years ago. They are called Kleine Münsterländer in Germany. Other early names for the Small Munsterlander are Heidewachtel, Spion (little spy), Maly Munsterlandsky Ohar, Petit Münsterländer, Pienimünsterinseisoja, or Piccolo Münsterländer. Germany is the founding country of Small (Kleine) Munsterlander and wrote the F.C.I .Standard .
The SM is one of the smallest of the gun dogs. It is tough, strongly built, full of nobility, and enthusiasm. The Small Munsterlander's coat should be smooth with feathering on the ears, the legs, and the tail. The dog uses his tail as an instrument of expression, and this signaling ability is highly useful in its work. Many SM have voice on trail or scent when tracking its game, which is a desirable trait especially in Europe. The hunter can hear the voice of his dog and know what type of game it is hunting or tracking.

We are excited to
Welcome to Hunting Hills Kennel home page on the Internet. At our site we hope to introduce our Small Munsterlander breed to you. The SM is a long haired versatile hunting dog that uses both air scent for pointing and ground scent for tracking. They will hunt fur and feather for the hunter on foot. The Small Munsterlander's elegance, intelligence, desire and devotion make them a wonderful hunting partner and home companion.
Hunting Hills Kennel's goal is to breed the best to the best; to produce a well balanced hunting dog and calm companion in the home with the family. In 18 years of owning SM's there have been 19 litters with 139 Hunting Hills' Small Munsterlanders born. 129 of the 139 Small Munsterlanders born are of age to be NAVHDA tested. 78 SM have Natural Ability tested in NAVHDA and 72 have passed the NA test with an average score of 102. That means that 56% of the Hunting Hills' Kennel Small Munsterlanders have tested and of those tested 92% have passed.
