The Small Munsterlander also known as the Kleine Munsterlander is an elegant strong dog with much self-confidence. It is a versatile hunting dog that combines intelligence, desire, and devotion enabling him to quickly adapt to the varied terrain or game and its masters hunting style. It is also a very clean dog that is most happy living in the home of its master. Typical characteristics are diligent ingenuity during fieldwork, solid pointing instinct, meticulous tracking ability, great endurance-even under difficult conditions. It has a great love for retrieving and enthusiasm for water work, voice on the trail and easy handling. Small Munsterlanders can be used for agility trials, obedience, or confirmation. The SM is a cooperative dog that seeks to please. But they can also be intense and stubborn. When training it is important to be consistent, not overly repetitious, and teach the dog what is expected of him. The stubbornness is a trait that can help make the dog a very persistent hunter. The Small Munsterlander is intelligent and needs regular mental stimulation and adequate exercise. If left alone in a kennel or not trained a SM can be bored and become destructive. The Small Munsterlander is many times slow to mature and usually reaches its full potential at about 2.5 years of age.
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.
