It’s been a cool, and windy spring, here in the Midwest. It’s slow to warm up and it will be a quick summer. Jetta and Ellie Mae have been keeping me busy. Their early track training has been going well. Jetta is the new addition to our family. She is fitting in nicely. She is 10 weeks old now. Ellie Mae is the single pup our girl Echo whelped 6.5 weeks ago. Ellie Mae will be headed to her new home soon.

      Hi Steve,

      I would recommend that whichever coat type you go with, that the pups come from hunting bloodlines. Many dogs have been bred down to a shorter statue, and with not much emphasis placed on the hunting drive of the dog.

      I love the look of a tight wirehaired coat. It provides some warmth and is not a lot of maintenance after tracking through briars and such. I have a smooth female now that came from two wire parents. She does well in the cold and has an awesome hunting drive. Her coat requires no maintenance. That is nice after being out in thick cover. The problem is that there is not an exact science in breeding perfect coats. If the same two dogs are bred numerous times a breeder may get some consistency. Wire-coats can be extremely long or tight. With a long one the dog needs to be constantly stripped to keep the coat looking good. There is also an hour or so of pulling out burrs and briars after each track into those conditions. So basically shorter hair means less time working on the coat.

      I am not planning my next litter until the spring of 2015. This will most likely be a repeat breeding of my smooth bitch Echo to a fuzzy dog named Vimy. They have produced pups with tighter coats. There are some pics of those pups under the tab breeding’s/ C-litter. Echo also had a single pup last spring. If you are interested in being placed on my waiting list I can send more info on these dogs. I will take names starting in January. I also included the name of a breeder that breeds smooth standard Teckels. Her dogs are very good.
