Von Holzbach Puppies
When you get a puppy from us, you can expect a well-bred, versatile hunting dog. We will support you throughout the pup’s development and training. In return, we ask that puppy buyers commit to a few basic things for the overall benefit of the breed:
JGHV Testing: At a minimum, we ask that puppies run the VJP (Spring natural ability test) in their eligible year. The performance data from these tests is invaluable for determining the success of the breeding and the preservation of key hunting skills. If you wish to continue on to additional JGHV testing, we will absolutely support you and help get you connected with local resources for training and preparation.
Hip X-rays: Data from the entire litter is useful in ensuring that genetic issues such as hip dysplasia are not being carried forward in breeding. We ask for pups to have their hips x-rayed at your vet and the images sent to Germany for official evaluation. This is done between 1-2 years of age.
Puppies are $1400 with a $200 nonrefundable deposit to reserve a spot on our waitlist. The balance is due before the puppy leaves our home. You may select the gender and preferred color, but we will select the puppy from there. Deposits will be refunded if the breeding doesn’t take or if there aren’t enough puppies born.
Puppies will be registered with the Deutsch Langhaar Verband and NAVHDA and will be eligible for testing in both the JGHV and NAVHDA systems. Note that only JGHV testing is recognized for breeding certification.
Our expectations and commitments are outlined in our breeding contract as well as the DL-GNA ownership contract. Links are below:
