We have been members of the Verein Deutsch Drahthaar (VDD - GNA) since 2003. At that time we purchased our first Drahthaar, Jamie II vom Wildeflugel, known to us as Lannie. She completed her VJP in the fall of '04 and we've been hooked ever since. v.d. Roten Schlucht got its beginning in 2010 with two females Adeen vom Heuerhaus and Mali vom Elderbach (both retired from breeding). We are a family of 5 living in Rawlins, WY. We enjoy the small town atmosphere and the hunting that is available in the area. The North Platte River runs outside of town so we are privileged to waterfowl as well as the chukar and pheasant hunting. Our Drahts are not only our hunting partners, but our pets as well. Dog training is a family affair. It is not unusual to see our thirteen year old son doing rabbit/duck drags or our eleven year old daughter making her "puppies" sit on the training table. We hope that v.d. Roten Schlucht will be able to introduce you to or continue your relationship with the VDD and these phenomenal hunting dogs!
