Just an update , took possession of my new puppy on Monday , !! when I looked at em all at 3 weeks old .! I wanted a bold bitch , and by my boots do I have one! :lol: She has gelled to me like a shadow , by nature they are kinda one person dogs which suits me fine , got another week of my hols to strengthen the bonding process. I am absolutely delighted , took me 2 years to replace my other companion Megan a E.S.P. Sadly gone :cry: But I have high hopes for this puppy, due to jabs cant take her to Stones day as an intro, so I will hold fast, bugger the hols in the Algarve ,me DOG COMES FIRST!(oh and the Mrs agrees).Happy as Larry

Nice looking dog trapper and from what i have heard and seen a real pointer with a lot of class .So its up to you now i am jealous as feck .Should have my new partner soon as my dog is eight years old and it will take a few years to train a new pup up that will do as good a job.

I also have a Munsterlander, he's three now and although head strong is without doubt the best deer dog i have had. Its always an emotive subject but for me after having GSP, WHP, SRP, Lab, this breed has it all.
Apart from people trying to convince me he is a ESS which really ****es me off he is a very handsome boy.

My real question is what is her pedigree name (there are not that many in the UK)

Enjoy.

Her pedigree name is Ichbin Eastern Wishes out of Ichbin Your Minstrel and Ellscott Spring Time and this (if I can load it) is the most recent photo of her.

Most deffo twagged a couple of days off for the dog day, still in the minor stages of training her , she is currently WILD and stubborn, hope to have some manners instilled , but I am not rushing the job she is 7 months old and still very much enjoying herself. I will be armed on the dog day with a couple of pockets stuffed with ROE Hocks , and a squeezy bottle of blood.
Oh by the way Mark H tip on salt in the bottle works stops the blood congealing and makes it more workable, which reminds me to get out again and restock.

Hope to have a chat at the dog day we seemed to miss each other on the march and shoot.

All the best

New to forum and saw this thread while back reading.

Thats a cracking looking dog you got there, and a typical Pat Mac dog. I gessed it was an Ichbin before I read further down the posts :D

I have two munsters, a Grunjagen and a Jaudas and both are excellent HPR's. I have had them both on training days with the LMC and both seem to have good deer tracking instincts tho I have never had the oppurtunity to use them as yet. They do work regularly on shoots and rough shoot too.

Its been a few weeks since the posts, any updates?

Have you tried the LMC Natural Aptitude Tests? (nat.apt). Very informal and cover deer tracking, hunting (ground covering, quartering etc), retrieving, water retrieving, gun shyness, biddability etc. Less than a tenner to enter and a great day out. (even get a certificate if ya pass!). They are done twice a year, once in Kelso and once in the midlands.

thanks for your kind comments. Still networking on the, Training side thats why Stones dog days are important regarding startup and general advise , also you get to meet shady characters from the site :lol: :lol:
Freya is in her first season at the moment , so when I am out it is far away from other dogs!! ;) , Her current plaything is last weeks Roe head , which I drag and hide , she is well interested , although she was overwhelmed at the dog day, I took her off on her own later and she followed up quite well , especially after nagging on a leg which Milly the lab also fancied. Next week I am at my club for an intro to Guns !! I realize I have to take this slowly , she seems fine with noises at the moment , but hate' s the hoover !! :lol: so do I :) Mind she had another portion of venison off the table today when I was butchering , a slab of back loin ! **** I only turned around and she had thieved it ,.
Hey ho way to go

Hi Trapper
Thats the thing with munsters, you have to bring them on slowly. A good dog can be ruined by following the usual training techniques.
I would highly recommend joining the LMC (Large Munsterlander Club) as they run regular training days and have lots of members who hunt with their dogs. It only costs a tenner a year and the advice alone is woth 100 times that amount.
The main training guy (Michael Waterworth) stalks with his dogs.
Not sure where you are based? But LMC run full training days with Rory Major, a professional HPR trainer in Lincolnshire. A full day only costs £35 and you learn so much. I travel down from North Manchester a couple of times a year with both my dogs when work allows.
I know several trainers that specialise in munsters if you want their contact details.
If you are anywhere near Manchester I would be more than happy to meet up and pass on whatever advice I can give.

All good stuff I am based NE LINCS so some where away from your base , however interested in the trainer in lincolnshire , trying to get some info from my breeder , but she is on holiday, We are members of L.M.C.
But yet to get to grips with it all, perhaps we can use the pm for exchange of info , don't want to nick all Ideas , cause HPR info would be valuable to other members also, if they are so inclined , after all the site is here to help all !!Novice or Expert.
