Also, the 2021 Breed Show Results have been added.  Congratulations to all the owners & handlers and thank you for allowing GNA to evaluate your dogs!

Happy Hunting!

Planning for our 2021 events is happening now…

KlM-GNA is busy planning events for the 2021 calendar.

KlM-GNA is proud to announce that we are hosting our first HZP and IMP-B tests!

Fifteen dogs will be testing in Wapello, IA over Sept. 8-10, 2017.  A corresponding breed show will also be held during the weekend.

Special thanks to all those who volunteered their time and effort to organize this testing weekend and best of luck to all handlers & their dogs!

Congratulations Ken Bremer!!

KlM-GNA accepted as member of the JGHV!

Membership confirmation letter, JGHV

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.).
