We are pleased with your interest in KlM-GNA and hope you will join us in building a dynamic and exciting breed club for the Kleiner Münsterländer. Our Club is comprised of hunters interested in training, testing, breeding, and hunting the finest possible Kleine (Small) Münsterländer in North America. We take great pride in our successful efforts to establish a strong relationship with the Verband für Kleine Münsterländer e.V., the parent club of the Kleine Münsterländer, as well as with Kleine Münsterländer-International (KlM-I). In 2015 we became an official chapter (Landesgruppe) of the Verband für Kleine Münsterländer, the first chapter outside of Germany, and a member of the Jagdgebrauchshundverband e.V. (JGHV or German Versatile Hunting Dog Association).
article source You will meet and be associated with members dedicated to the preservation of the KlM as a versatile and healthy hunting dog. JGHV natural ability and performance test results, Breed Show evaluations, hip test valuations, and genetic data are integrated into the so-called “Dogbase” breeding program and are the foundation of the German breeding philosophy, which has so successfully bred healthy and proficient KlM hunting dogs for decades. As a chapter of the Verband für Kleine Münsterländer e.V., KlM-GNA’s activities are centered on the development and hunting of our beloved breed. With the opportunity to attend all Club events, you will develop friendships and memories based on the common goal of nurturing the best possible KlM for fellow hunters.
