Raycris Top Secret vom Tanzenbach
As with most breeds, Munsterlander puppies are
extremely appealing but please read this first to get a better insight into this
lovable but boisterous breed......
Munsterlander is an HPR (hunt, point, retrieve) gundog breed, originally
conceived as an all-round working breed and it has a genetic propensity for
activity. By its very nature it is a dog needing space. They want
exercise although it does not have to be excessive – but they do need activities
to keep them bodily and mentally healthy.
The original German breeders looked for a dog which not only could
perform its role as a general hunting
but could double as a general
farm dog guarding
the property and family. Although it will warn vociferously when it
detects intruders, the breed should not have an aggressive nature. As a
breed it is underestimated for its ability in the field, in the show ring and as
a companion. It is a keen worker, has an excellent nose, staying power,
and works equally well on land and in water, an ideal dog for the rough shooter.
It is probably an ideal medium/large-sized, athletic dog for an active young
family living in the country that likes country pursuits. Highly
intelligent, they will romp for hours with children, they love games in the
garden like ‘hunt the toy’ but will be equally ready for a stroll to the pub in
This is strictly a
‘people dog’ and dislikes intensely being left alone for long periods of time.
They love their family dearly and would like to be involved in all the family
