Our goal as a kennel is to breed healthy, stable Small Münsterlanders who are also well balanced, loving companions in the home. A dog’s temperament is as significant as their hunting ability so we strive to produce truly versatile hunting dogs that can not only hunt but also be a lifelong member of a family. We do our best to match puppies with prospective owner’s based on their experience with hunting and training as well as their personal lifestyle. We make sure our females are certified to breed by meeting the SMCNA and AKC breed standards. Their hips are rated “good” or “excellent” according to the OFA, or receive a reading of distraction index of less than 0.50 in PennHip.
Four Point Kennels chooses to test their promising breeding stock in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test, but also the UPT or UT test at a young age. We encourage all Small Münsterlander owners to have their dogs NAVHDA tested and become members of the SMCNA (Small Münsterlander Club of North America). NAVHDA (The North American Hunting Dog Association) is the foundation registry and testing organization used for the SMCNA. By NAVHDA using a “standard” for testing purposes, Four Point Kennels can compare our Small Münsterlanders with other versatile breeds.
Each litter is planned for the improvement of our breed and breeding program. At 8 weeks of age our puppies are evaluated for their conformation and temperament through Wendy Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Test. We offer a 6-year health guarantee on all our puppies, along with our advice and assistance in training the puppy. Our puppies are sold with their first shots, wormed, and micro-chipped. As well as registered with NAVHDA.
We want our puppies to go to the best homes possible and we want you to be happy with your new hunting and home companion. For that reason we ask prospective buyers to fill out a questionnaire before we agree to sell them a puppy.
