Cedar vom Brandherd's Bio:
(Click for anyone of the following for details)
Cedar is a quintessential prairie dwelling organism with a typical working range in open country of 100-250 yards; ideal for targeting wary and dispersed wild pheasant, grouse, and partridge. She is the third Drahthaar I have owned and definitely the most balanced. She possesses a rare combination of intense prey drive AND nearly perfect manners in the crate, kennel, and home. Additionally, she is a great citizen with all other dogs and people, despite her hardness on wild fur.
Born in September of 2014, Cedar earned a 72 at the VJP in Amidon, ND in May, 2015. In October 2015, she scored 185 at the Oberlander HZP in Hugo, MN. The Oberlander is a regional HZP hosted by JGV-USA; there she earned an 11 in the water due to the incredible duck search where she continuously expanded for over 15 minutes in a 40-50 acre vegetated wetland. Despite being one of the youngest dogs at the test, she was assigned the rank of 4th out of 47 dogs who participated (which made her the highest overall ranking female Drahthaar at that test).
Her first season of hunting in North Dakota and Montana was very fruitful, with dozens and dozens of productive field searches, tracks, points, and retreives on wild prairie game birds. I have witnessed her to be loud on the scent and sight of fur.
She meets my expectations of expanding her terrestrial search to meet the demands of the terrain, always aware and respectful of the handler.
She points well and relocates often on running roosters. Towards the end of the 2015 hunting season, she began backing naturally without training pressure.
She possesses a maintenance free, hard, and dense coat which lies flat and has superior coverage and undercoat.
The endurance she has demonstrated to hunt throughout the day, weekend, and season is second to none. Three days of hunting upland birds sun up to sun down is hardly a challange for her.
Cedar is a product of the Drahthaars pictured below:

Falk possesses exceptional talents useful for any hunting situation, which should come with no surprise based on the legendary dogs who appear on his ahnentafel.
Keith and Kyle Kneser praise him as an extremely reliable waterfowl dog who rarely gets left behind when they are headed to the duck blind in the most adverse conditions like ice, snow, and wind. He routinely recovers fleeing cripples from heavily vegetated and ice cold waters for the Knesers.
I am equally or more impressed by Falk's field manners; he has an extreme will to find game AND point it out for the gun. Despite his rigorous and industrious search, he is calm in the crate, duck blind, and at home. His pointing abilities and long nose should complement Cedar's very very nicely. He possesses excellent form which supports superior athleticism and movement. I seek dogs possessing serious drive with effortless and powerful mobility to enhance the productivity and extend the duration of hunting excursions, and Falk has it!
Mentally, he is a well balanced Draht who is friendly with other dogs and people and handles training pressure well.
This pairing includes two HD-A rated dogs which is advised and favored for more promise of passing the genetics for healthy hips. Additionally, both dogs are 11/11 (F/H), which is difficult to find on the litter announcement page of the VDD-GNA's website. Because Falk is rated FF for furnishings, we may expect 100% of the pups to have furnishings.
If you are interested in a dog who consistently stays within shotgun range in the field, you should consider inquiring about a different litter from a different breeder. If you enjoy hunting with a cooperative and powerful dog with the God given abilities to take you to the game for a controlled shot over point and subsequent recovery, I would be pleased to visit about the potential of realizing your aspirations!
