I am just tossing this idea out to you dog guys. I have a very good Drahthaar female and am considering starting up a kennel in the Eagle River area. As far as I know there is no active DD breeders in Alaska. I am looking to see if there is a need for these versatile dogs in Alaska? I hunt lots of different species of game in Alaska and the lower 48 with these dogs.
For me to get up and running is a huge investment in time and money. Pups would likely sell in the $1000 to $1500 range at 8-10 weeks old.
If this is all "greek" to you and you want to know more about the breed do a search for VDD Dogs or check out the JGV-USA site on the net.
Thanks in advance for serious and thoughful comments.
