Small Munsterlander Pointer/Retriever

7 posts in this topic

Researching dog breeds, led me to take a closer look at this breed, Small Munsterlanders. SM's seem to be a breed that is not very well known. I do not think I have ever seen a posting on one. The internet has given me a lot of info on this breed, but, I am now looking for someone out there that owns one. If you own one, would you recommend the breed as a family dog/hunting partner? Are they high strung & etc?

My neighbor has one and it is high strung but it isn't one year yet. She is VERY birdy. He hasn't worked on keeping her steady on point and she is almost a flusher rather than a vers.

The founding father of Mn NAVHDA is Bill Jensen. He now lives up between Dalbo & Milaca. Give him a call. He would have judged or seen the local SMP breeders stuff, I'm sure; or give you imput on who to talk to. It is a rare breed.

A friend of mine that I hunt with has two of them. They're excellent hunting dogs, great noses, and hunt similar to the other pointing breeds. If you're looking for a pointer, I think they're good dogs and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to own one if I was looking for a pointer. Just be sure to get one that has been well bred. I believe their national association endorses breedings that meet a certain standard, but you would need to look into that further. Hope this helps.

The only registered sml's are ones that come from dogs that have been titled. The pedigree for my neighbors dog is unbelievable.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
