Welcome to Hunting Hills Kennel LLC home page on the Internet. At our site we hope to introduce our Small (Kleine) Munsterlander breed to you. The SM (KlM) is a long haired versatile hunting dog that uses both air scent for pointing and ground scent for tracking. They will hunt fur and feather for the hunter on foot. The Small Munsterlander's elegance, intelligence, desire and devotion make them a wonderful hunting partner and home companion.
Hunting Hills Kennel's (HHK) goal is to breed the best to the best; to produce a highly skilled versatile hunting dog in the field and a calm stable companion in the home with the family. In 22 years of breeding SM's there have been 36 litters with 237 Hunting Hills' Small Munsterlanders born. Of the HHK SM who tested:
123 Hunting Hills Kennel Small Munsterlanders puppies have passed NAVHDA Natural Ability Test
6 Hunting Hills Kennel Small Munsterlanders have passed NAVHDA Utility Preparatory Test

Hunting Hills Kennel has earned 22 NAVHDA & SMCNA NA Breeders Awards and 13 SMCNA Sires Awards. We encourage all buyers to be members of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) and the Small Munsterlander Club of North America (SMCNA) to help promote the Small (Kleine) Munsterlander.
All Hunting Hills Small Munsterlanders used for breeding have met or surpassed the minimum breeding requirements of the Small Munsterlander Club of North America (SMCNA). The SMCNAis the original Small (Kleine) Munsterlander Club in North America and the Club's mission is to promote responsible ownership of the Small Munsterlander, encourages training, testing, and hunting.
Additionally, the Club recognizes the Small Munsterlander to be a versatile hunting dog, accepts the Standard of the breed as set forth by the German Verband for Kleine Munsterlander and adopted by the FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale) as the only standard of conformation by which the Small Munsterlander shall be judged, and encourages testing, training and breeding that conforms to accepted standards. Hunting Hills Kennel puppies will only be sold to SMCNA members.
The SM originated in the Munster region of Northern Germany over 500 years ago. They are called Kleiner Münsterländer in Germany. Other early names for the Small Munsterlander are Heidewachtel, Spion (little spy), Maly Munsterlandsky Ohar, Petit Münsterländer, Pienimünsterinseisoja, or Piccolo Münsterländer. Germany is the founding country of Small (Kleine) Munsterlander and wrote the F.C.I .Standard.
The Small Munsterlander is one of the smallest of the versatile gun dogs. It is tough, strongly built, full of nobility, and enthusiasm. The Small Munsterlander's coat should be smooth with feathering on the ears, the legs, and the tail. The SM uses his tail as an instrument of expression, and this signaling ability is highly useful in its work. Many SMhave voice on trail or scent when tracking its game, which is a desirable trait especially in Europe. The hunter can hear the voice of his dog and know what type of game it is hunting or tracking.
Hunting Hills Kennel is a member of the following: Small Munsterlander Club of North America (SMCNA), North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA), United Kennel Club (UKC), and the Hunting Retriever Club (HRC). Hunting Hills' Kennel is a Cooperating Breeder in the SMCNA and is a licensed commercial breeder by the Nebraska State Department of Agriculture
What Our Clients Are Saying
Love the dogs coming out of this project. They are the best out there and Kris and her husband are very helpful through everything and are always available for questions. My pup Bear is such a handsome little man and has some of the best instincts. He was pointing birds off scent at 8 weeks. Highly recommend Kris.
