Great dogs begin with a sound breeding program
Small Munsterlander Puppy


Our Classic Kleine / Small Munsterlander’s provide the foot hunter with a powerful, personable, versatile hunting and family partner. Developed through a performance based testing system and breeding program set forth by the USA Breed Club, Kleine Munsterlander Group North America, based on the standards established by the German Parent Breed Organization. Why would you look anywhere else?


Why a “Classic” Kleine / Small Munsterlander?


The greater part of the European Kleine Munsterlander (KIM) population today does not come from standard-based, versatile performance breeding linage. In many countries puppies are produced from parents who have not pasted any kind of natural ability performance test; let alone using any kind of advanced standardized performance test so comparison can be made, for breeding purposes, across countries or even breeders. We are all aware of breeds that have become popular. Demand increases, indiscriminate breeding expands and pretty soon a breed that originated to hunt no longer has any natural drive or skill to do so. Genetic disorders become more prevalent, and temperament issues suddenly appear. In many countries the breeders have breed for specialization based on the type of hunting done by their hunters. This resulted in KIM sub-types which have lost their versatility. The versatility is vital to the overall performance and more importantly the elevated intelligence of this breed. This versatility is especially important in the breeding population. It is their high intelligence that allows a KIM to be trained to specialize in all aspects of the hunt: 1) in the field, 2) in the forest, 3) in the water and equally skilled before and after the shot. The ability to specialize through training is a fundamental characteristic of the classic KIM. Loose the versatility and you will lose the intelligence---I think you will agree people and dogs rise to the expectations demanded of them.

To preserve and promote this fundamental versatility characteristic, standardized performance testing and physical conformation evaluations are required for any Classic KIMs being evaluated for breeding: i.e. PERFORMANCE BREEDING. This standardized performance and physical conformation evaluation has been practiced in Germany (the home of the KIM) for decades. Because of the none existence or lack of any type of standardized performance and confirmation evaluation outside of Germany the German parent KIM Breed Organization, Kleine Munsterlander-Duetchland (KlM-D), only approves the use of German stud dogs and limits the sale of offspring (pups) to Classic KIM Breed Clubs in countries that are actively pursuing approved standardized performance testing and conformation evaluations to guide their breeding programs.

KlM-GNA is one of the approved Breed Clubs. KIM-GNA as a landesgruppe (regional club) of KIM-D adheres to and practices these approved standardized performance tests and conformation evaluation. KIM-GNA IS THE ONLY SMALL MUNSTERLANDER BREED ORGANIZATION IN THE USA and CANADA WHOSE BREEDERS ARE ALLOWED TO EVALUATE THEIR DOGS THROUGH THE KIM-D STANDARDIZED PERFORMANCE TESTS AND CONFIRMATION EVALUATION. ONLY THOSE DOGS WHO SATISFACTORILY COMPLETE THESE TESTS AND EVLAUATION ARE ALLOWED TO BREED, THUS PERSERVING THE VERSATILITY, CHARACTER AND TEMPERMENT OF THE CLASSIC KlM.

NO OTHER SMALL MUNSTERLANDER GROUP, BREED CLUB OR INDIVIDUAL BREEDER IN THE USA OR CANADA, OUTSIDE OF KIM-GNA, CAN ACCURATLEY MAKE THIS CLAIM. KIM-GNA breeders and their kennel facilities must meet the highest standards for their dogs and puppys. Kennels and litters are inspected to guarantee adherence. WHY WOULD YOU CONSIDER ANY OTHER SOURCE FOR YOUR CLASSIC KLEINE / SMALL MUNSTERLANDER?
