“The cobbler should stick
to his last” an old proverb is saying Today I dare not say if it is true
or not. After all the years of hunting with Kleiner Münsterländer (
Small Münsterländer Pointer) I see this "new" as an exciting challenge.
Do the breed have capable predisposition? I do not know - yet. Water
Passion? This I have seen specimens have. Some things I have reflected
on since the very first day. When I rolled / thrown away things to
Münster Puppies they run happily after it and will just as quickly back,
retrieving. Already at the age of 8 weeks , Isolde rushed it happily
after - but not back to me…. I really tried to seem interesting but that
didn’t amuse the little lady. So, we tried trailer tracks - this is the
very first day –with a bird and about 25 meters long. The nose at once
to the ground , with concentration, and fast! Many tracking champions
(blood-tracking) there are in the breed - so a good searching for
animals- dog (for example after shot) the Stabij could be!
When there were poor times
long ago my father bred rabbits. Most likely, he gave up eventually,
since I since two-years-old let them out as soon as I was out of sight.
Of course not an "activist" of any kind - but I felt sorry for them in
cages. That the newborn were young and then went out to meet death by
starvation, I had no understanding about. It didn´t help my father
giving me hard punishment… Now grown up and like hunting that of hunting
rabbits are funny – and interesting, specially in using tame ferrets
instead of dogs.
The second variant was pure
probation of the farmer/landowner who received land and crops destroyed.
Did you not own a dog you could rent both the dog owner and the dog. The
dog chased independently, buried and killed. The last sentence method
wasn’t so profitable Most often, the dop catched young and therefore
relatively small moles. The coat was not utilized to a greater extent
either skinning or taning.
More about hunting You will find on the pages of each dog. By now it’t only Isolde which has this experience!
