Welcome to vom Brandherd Kennels, producing versatile Drahthaars for field and family. We are a Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar registered kennel, committed to the VDD testing program and breeding regulations.
We are located in the Minneapolis, MN area and primarily hunt pheasant, ruffed grouse, and waterfowl and seek to produce dogs that excel in these areas. Our dogs are medium size, easy to keep in the house with family, yet possess the heart and desire to pursue and retrieve game regardless of size. We believe our dogs will make you a more efficient, effective hunter, proud to share the field with your Deutsch-Drahthaar hunting companion. To obtain more info on the breed please go to VDD-GNA website. If you have questions about our dogs, litters, or other started dogs available, you can contact us at [email protected].
Operating as usual
Sharing a post from Rolf Rogers: Eddy’s (Edel vom Brandherd) first point on a wild, young pheasant hen at 14 weeks. Amazing search in the tall grass - oozing natural ability. Look out Dixie!
Little Eva turned 12 weeks on Saturday and did her best to keep up with mom in the field all weekend. She had a great time, learned a lot, and slept hard every night.
(Please excuse the poor audio, just focus on the puppy cuteness factor)
After raising a litter of 9 pups this summer, Cami was very happy to get back in the fields of ND this weekend and chase some sharptailed grouse.
Big day for little Eva vom Brandherd (11wks old) - we did intro to birds and to gunfire this morning, and here’s her first venture into the water shortly afterward. I’m liking what I see in this pup and this litter!
** SOLD ** Eik vom Brandherd: one very nice male available from our current litter to a hunting home. Very bold, calm pup with tight coat and nice beard coming in. Message Brad for more details. Located in MN.
Eloise meets her family: what a welcome home! This is one of my favorite parts of breeding and sharing my passion for the dogs, hunting, and the outdoors. The excitement of adding a new family member, and soon a new hunting partner helps keep your kids involved and pass on our hunting heritage!
8 wk old Eik vom Brandherd sizing up the competition next door. He’s deciding if he should wrestle them one at a time or take them both at once. 😄
Lastly, Eloise (aka Weezy) got to meet Jennifer and Mike DePalma who flew in from NJ to come pick her up!
Busy day at Brandherd Central: congrats to all the new families picking up E litter pups this weekend! We are excited to have you all in the family.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Eva vom Brandherd - the newest addition to our breeding program.
Tattoo day is always fun and the dogs get ink all over. Thanks to Jake Strege and Ed Challacombe for helping get the pups stamped.
** SOLD ** 3yr old female available: Daisy vom Brandherd (Crissy vom Brandherd x Jack II vom Leither Moor). Daisy is a well mannered, happy dog at home, with kids, and with other dogs. She has had many birds shot over her including ruffed grouse, woodcock, sharptails, Huns, and pheasants - her natural range in the Dakotas is 150yds +/- and holds her birds well, natural backing dog as well. She scored 71 VJP but due to work/family obligations, never ran HZP - could still be run in VGP and breed certified. She will be a great hunting partner this fall! Contact Brad for more info at [email protected]
One male available from our E Litter to a testing home. Litter is looking very uniform with bold healthy pups. Crissy vom Brandherd x Falk vom windigen Punkt. Contact Brad for more info.
Nightly ritual of puppy snuggling. Gracia got some special attention from Elsie tonight, laying on her head.
[07/18/20] Milk drunk and sleepy - E litter is 4 weeks old today.
I'm really hoping this guy will grow a beard someday - what do you think? 😁 E litter pups will be 4wks old tomorrow and they're looking excellent!
Day brightener: first extended time outside for the E litter pups. They definitely approve.
E litter pups are 3 weeks old today and made the move to the pen in the garage - much more room plus easy access to the back yard, and hopefully we can sleep through the night now!
Dog days of summer. Heat = tired, lazy dogs. Thank goodness for A/C!
Cami makes taking care of 9 pups look easy.

Good morning from the sleepy E Litter. They're all nursing well and getting stronger every day.
Daisy loves her antler chew, but she looks a bit like a warthog when she's carrying it!
Just had x-rays done confirming pregnancy with Cami x Falk and we have a good pile of pups on the way! As a result, we’re taking a couple more reservations for both M/F pups. Contact me for more info.

Mother (Cami) and daughter (Daisy) out for a quick run before it got too warm today. The birds cooperated and the girls had some nice points and backs.
Cami's baby bump is starting to show! She's showing all the signs of being pregnant, looking forward to her xray early June to count the pups!
Putting away some clothes this morning and found another pheasant hunting casualty - barbed wire has claimed more pants than I care to admit!
Happy Mother's Day Iris (A, B, & C litters) and Cami (D & soon to be E litter)!
Announcing the E Litter vom Brandherd! Now taking deposits for both males and females.
Sire: Falk vom windigen Punkt
VJP 63+77, HZP 182, Form/Hair 11/11, 62x62cm, HD-A, FF, vWD Free
Dam: Crissy (Cami) vom Brandherd
VJP 69, HZP 169+177, Form/Hair 10/11, 62x63cm, HD-B, Ff, vWD Free
Falk is a male I have been tracking since he was a pup. He's a high power, driven dog with tons of talent in the field and water. His temperament makes him a great family and house dog, and his size and coat make him an easy keeper with zero coat maintenance required.
Cami is the best bird dog I've ever owned, and a great total package. She showed excellent bird sense, caution and pointing instinct at a very young age and has proven to be the go-to dog when we hit the field. In the house she is very calm and loves being with her people. She comes from a very consistent, talented litter and they are producing pups that carry their traits.
I expect this litter to be a powerful, bigger running litter that still maintains cooperation.
Contact Brad via DM or [email protected] for more info. Strong preference given to VDD testing homes.
Happy 3rd birthday D Litter vom Brandherd! Dixie is already in party mode for the day! Photo credit: Rolf Rogers
So my daughter does dog-sitting gigs on the side. Years of drahthaar experience have taught her well, and here's how she entertains her 4 legged friend with the help of some peanut butter.
This stone cold killer has been moonlighting as a Christmas Elf! Merry Christmas from vom Brandherd Deutsch-Drahthaars!
This is one bad-ass dog - I love it! Reminds me of Iris, Cami, and Daisy piling into the cattails and hammering coons this fall!
A man wanted in connection with an assault was taken down by a police K-9 that lunged through his broken window after a pursuit ended in Corona. http://on.ktla.com/0wdmb
