Puppies

Hunting Hills Puppies

At Hunting Hills Kennel we work hard to produce Small (Kleine) Munsterlander that are both premier hunting dogs and wonderful loving family companions. Our HHK puppies are born and raised in our home. They are handled daily from birth on. The puppies are well-socialized with adults, kids, and other dogs. Our puppies are introduced to birds, gunfire, and water when weather allows.

Puppy Vet Visits

Our puppies visit the vet at 2-4 days old to remove their dew claws.  They return to the vet at 7 weeks for a through check up with their first set of puppy shots (DHPPL), worming, heartworm and are microchipped.

What Comes With Your Hunting Hills’ Puppy?

Your HHK puppy will have both SMCNA and NAVHDA pedigrees, one year free membership to the Small Munsterlander Club of North America breed club (SMCNA). We provide the new owners with the NAVHDA training book titled The Training and Care of the Versatile Hunting Dog and The NAVHDA Aims and Rule Book.

Hunting Homes

We prefer to place our puppies in hunting homes and will only consider a non-hunting home if the puppy will regularly participate in activities that utilize his/her natural talents, such as hunt testing, tracking, search and rescue or an outdoor family that regularly hikes or exercises with the dog. Small Munsterlanders are working dogs who require daily exercise and mental stimulation. Small Munsterlanders also enjoy human companionship and are clean in the home.

 

NAVHDA Natural Ability Test

We encourage you to prepare your puppy to take NAVHDA’s Natural Ability Test.The NA test is designed to evaluate the success of a breeding and to provide information for making future breeding decisions. The tests also help prepare a dog to be your hunting companion in its first year hunting. The NAVHDA NA test is an important test to evaluate a versatile hunting dog’s natural hunting ability. If you plan to breed your puppy, the SMCNA will require him or her to prize in a NAVHDA test along with a hip evaluation.
