bred by Tom Wilcox
We are located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and for nearly 15 years we've been involved in the handling and training of Deutsch Drahthaars and German Wirehaired Pointers. At vom Windswept, our primary focus is training and hunting. We also produce a litter or two each year to share our love for the breed with other serious hunters.
We are fortunate to be located in one of the hunting capitals of the world. In our experience we have found this breed to be the best fit for the varied type of hunting we enjoy.
At vom Windswept Kennels, the primary goal of our breeding program is to provide serious hunting dogs to serious hunters. Our dogs can be expected to retrieve waterfowl in the morning and hunt, point and retrieve upland game all afternoon.
Health, temperament and a burning desire to hunt are three traits that are foremost in our mind as we make breeding decisions. This is accomplished through careful and selective pairing of our females to the proper studs.
Health and desire are easily understood concepts. In making temperament a breeding goal, what I am aiming for is to produce a dog that is calm in the house and the blind, is mentally well balanced in a wide variety of situations and is friendly, showing no aggression around other dogs or people.
We are not a high volume breeder and only produce a litter or two each year. If you seek a versatile hunting partner that is a joy to hunt over and a pleasure to share your home with, we may have exactly what you are looking for.
