Welcome Darko vom Stiftsforst to the KlM-GNA family! Darko was bred by Andreas Kurre in Molbergen, Germany and arrived in the U.S. on Monday, December 14th. The proud owner is Tim Farmer.
On December 22, 2015, President John Liscovitz received the attached letter confirming KlM-GNA as a new member in the JGHV (German Versatile Hunting Dog Association). What is the JGHV? According to the JGV-USA, the U.S. affiliate of the JGHV,
“The JGHV is the umbrella organization of all versatile hunting dog clubs in Germany. They have been largely responsible for the success of the German performance based breeding system by providing standardized tests for all versatile hunting dogs. Existing for almost a century now, JGHV testing standards bind all breeding organizations, including those represented here in the U.S. By evaluating the breeding quality of dogs through examination of their performance record and that of their offspring, German breeders consistently produce dogs most suitable for the modern foot hunter. These dogs exhibit a high degree of cooperation and trainability coupled with an ability to handle any game you desire to hunt.”
The most significant consequence of this new membership for KlM-GNA is that we can now organize our own JGHV tests, whether the VJP, HZP, VGP or any of the specialty tests which evaluate specific aspects of a versatile hunting dog’s skills (e.g. blood tracking, retrieving game, independent search, etc.).

Chuck (and Reka), me( John Sarvis) (and JayDee), Scott (and Sam Adams), and Dennis and Will (and Paxson). After the dog walk, we adjourned to the house and joined Kathy and Carol (and grandson, Ely). Thanks for all the great food everyone brought, the wonderful hungarian partridges that Kathy cooked up, and the great fellowship catching up on what everyone was doing. And all of the dogs behaved well in the house. It was a fun day for us and the dogs
