Creek is a proud member of VDD/GNA (Verein
Deutsch Drahthaar e. V. Group North America).
All dogs used in the VDD/GNA breeding program must meet certain
standards in natural hunting ability, temperament, and coat
and conformation. The VDD breed standard represents the practical
aspects of conformation and coat. Any disqualification in
one or more of these categories will eliminate a dog from
breeding. This practice ensures that only the best dogs are
used for reproduction.
All puppies whelped in Group North America are registered with
the VDD in Germany, receive official VDD pedigrees and registration
numbers, and are tattooed with that registration number in their
right ear before they leave the breeder's kennel. Breeders' kennels
also must be registered and all VDD breeding regulations must be
followed. In addition, Group North America has a progressive hip
dysplasia program coordinated with the VDD in Germany.
The Deutsch Drahthaar has been selectively bred for versatile hunting
for more than 90 years. Ninety years of testing inherited natural
abilities, such as nose, search, pointing, tracking, cooperation,
waterlove, retrieving, and temperament has been used to develop the
breeding stock from which all Deutsch Drahthaar are whelped.
