The Large Munsterlander exists today as a breed because of it's excellent natural ability as a gundog. This ability is nurtured in all breeding stock in Germany, it's country of origin. To ensure our dogs keep this ability, we regularly use fresh mating's from proven German dogs.
Large Munsterlanders are eager hunters, natural pointers and excel at retrieving, making them a super dog for the rough shooter.
Their strong pointing instinct makes them very suitable for working with falcons and their tracking ability a good companion for the deer stalker.

We work our dogs on local shoots that vary from large root fields to dense woodland. Given the choice most Munsterlanders seem to love working on a duck shoot where they can show their skill in the water or reed beds.
Our dogs always prove popular with the 'guns' on the various shoots where they work, possibly due to their outstanding ability in finding 'lost' game
We all occasionally enjoy outings to field Trials in the shooting season and Gundog working tests during the summer months. So far we have bred 8 Munsterlanders which have gained field trial awards as well as the
12 full champions.
