The concept of a versatile hunting dog was developed in Germany in the early 1800's. By the early 1900's several breeds had been successfully created to hunt various types of game.

Verein Deutsch Drahthaar (VDD) was founded in May 1902 and is the German registration organization which has established a world wide reputation of excellence in breeding standards. The VDD is dedicated to the development, breeding and continuous improvement of the versatile hunting Drahthaar. 

Drosselbart Drahthaars are registered in the VDD, this German registration system requires that all dogs pass a series of tests including field performance, coat and confirmation evaluation, mental stability and several others prior to becoming eligible for breeding. It is through the utilization of this system that I found I could realize my objective to establish a line of Deutsch Drahthaars that are predictably and consistently high in performance.
