Thread: Hello from Oxfordshire

  1. #1

    Hello from Oxfordshire

    Have joined to gain information if that's OK. Have a partner who shoots and have owned and worked pointing dogs for over 20 years. Have imported Deutsch Langhaars in 1999 from Germany, all of whom were field trialled before they were bred. There is now an interest with stalkers , hence admission to this forum . We are requiring sschweisshund testing so am in contact with the BMHS and have supplied information on JGHV testing for them. This breed has a long history of tracking and was known as The Game Warden's Dog. I hope you can tolerate a middle aged handler who is out of her comfort zone who is wanting to look and learn.

    You're more than welcome! There are all sorts of members on this site - what links us all is an interest in the various aspects of deer stalking, of which dogs and tracking is an important one. You'll find lots of interesting post in the Deer Dogs section, and any questions are sure to get an answer.

    There are a good number of site members in Oxfordshire, so much so that a few of us met up last night for a drink and a chat - other guests in the pub looked somewhat bemused

    Look forward to hearing more about the Langhaars

    Welcome.

    I have a Langhaar from one of the first litters bred in Ireland seven years ago, the bitch was brought from Scotland by a pal of mine, the dog belonged to a Dutchman who lives in Wicklow.

    Fantastic dogs, seen here with my old GSP. He deos not look his best at the moment, lot of dead hair needs brushed off:

    Your dog must be from Wim Gillisson's lines who I know very well.

    We imported ours from Germany in 1999. I have 7 at the moment and a litter 0f 8 born a week ago.

    We are members of Club Langhaar and was over there 2 weeks ago to look at new bloodlines for our breeding programme.

    Yes the dog belonged to Wim, the bitch belonged to a lady breeder/handler from Scotland, I do not remember her name. An aquaintance of mine bought the bitch from this lady in Scotland and brought her back to N Ireland, he then bred this bitch (her kennel name was "Bruin" - not sure of the spelling). The bitch had a fantastic pedigree, I seem to remember the sire and dam of this bitch were Dutch or German imports. I have lost contact with the guy who bred my dog, it was a great litter with 10 pups, several of the pups were mostly or all white. Most of the pups went to the south of Ireland.

    Langhaar, are your line related to Rob Gould? I bet your sick of people asking about your "leggy Spaniel"?

    Only joking seen a couple work and they are thorough!

    Bye the way welcome!

    No not related to Wamilanghaar which are Dutch field trialling lines.

    One could suggest there are 2 distinct types in the UK , German and Dutch.
    Those from the country of origin have been founded and bred for their versatility on all types of game . Dutch ft lines are now bred to be bird specialists so tend to have less bone .

    You must be a good judge on the origins of breeds deer man because this breed is classified as vorstehhund ( spaniel type ) by the FCI. So yes they do look like spaniels on long legs and yes I do have a lot of comments ! They're always positive tho when they've seen the dogs work especially one keeper who rushed for his camera when my dog retrieved a munjac. Fox too, no problem at all.
    Dogs can be large , I have one who is 66 cms but this is no handicap on a moor where he can find and hold moving cocks. He was featured in The Field magazine one month where the writer said he was worth a hog's head of claret for his work on a spring pointing test so he's no slouch!
    These dogs are the most instinctive we've ever had and are true game hunters and trackers.My friend who is coming to the UK to shoot has completed the VSwPO 72 hour 1000m track with his Longhair although their Verband's JGHV breed tests require a 400 m one for their youth prufungs.

    We will enter the BMHSGB Schweisshunde testing programme to protect the tracking instinct in this breed in the UK.
