Welcome to vom Reinberg Kennels. 

Growing up on the Eastern side of Iowa, I had the opportunity to hunt and fish the rich Mississippi River and the surrounding land.  I was an avid upland, waterfowl and big game hunter.  Luckily, my father always had sporting dogs, but they were upland dogs.  When I moved to Central Illinois, I needed a versatile dog that I could take duck hunting in the morning, then point upland game in the afternoons.  The versatility and proven performance of the Deutsch-Drahthaar through the Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar (VDD) testing system ensures a high quality hunting partner.

I am currently a field performance judge (verbandsrichter) and a blood tracking judge.  My kennel is registered in Germany with the Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar.  The kennel is named after my great grandfather who made the journey from Germany to America.  "Reinberg" translates to "clean mountain" and my intention is to climb this mountain and leave a clean trail along the way. 

My everyday profession is an engineer and I will produce one high quality litter a year.  My goal is to produce versatile hunting dogs for foot hunters.  I strive to produce dogs that have balanced pointing, water desire and tracking ability.  The versatility of the breed is important and I intend to keep it that way with the puppies I produce.

I hope you surf through the pages, enjoy the site and find something interesting.
