"Munsterlander Puppy"

This is Monty, a puppy of just five weeks old - I wonder what he is going to be when he grows up? or even, WHERE he is going to be when he grows up! (Although I am sure he has a good home ready and waiting for him) This sweet photo is sent in by Lynn. One to make you go aghhhhhhhhhhh.

"Munsterlander in America"

You may wonder what the top pic has to do with Munsterlanders, it is all to do with finding out how people across the World live and work with their munsterlanders. We have Munsterlander at Large Members in the US., the UK, Scandinavia, Europe and "Down Under" and it is fascinating to read how they are all the same in the end - just our munsterlanders!

"Mancunian Munsters"

Here are Zak and Annie belonging to Russ. Possibly the most famous duo to ever come out of Manchester. Well maybe not quite! Lovely to see Annie looking so settled in her new home. Annie is a trained gundog and will be imparting all her wisdom on the young Zak.

"Dual-purpose Large Munsterlander"

If you regularly check the updates blog, you may have spotted that we have a new Large Munsterlander Full Champion in 'Eva' or Ch Raycris Sweet Aria JW. She won the CC at Driffield Championship Show adding it to the two she had won previously and her Show Gundog Working Certificate. That's what I call doing it in style! She is pictured here doing what comes naturally and what she loves, testing out her skills in the field.

"Munsterlander Amateur Hunters"

'After 12 hours traveling from The Netherlands to Sweden, I expected our Munsterlanders to rush into the woods and to get drunk on all the smells and the freedom. Instead, they decided to go hunting the easy way...' Eric in the Netherlanders.

"Munsterlander Flyball Fynn"

You may have heard that Fynn recently gained his 'Flyball Dog' award from the British Flyball Association. Fynn is a cracking flyball dog, he's also a typical Munster through and through & loves to crash through the undergrowth in search of game. These Munsters are truly multi-talented. See information on Fynn and his pals' flyball team at

"Munsterlander saves the day"

This is Archie, at a working test this summer. After all the tests had been completed, one competitor was trying to encourage their young dog to complete a simple water retrieve as this youngster had developed a sudden dislike to water. Unfortunately the pup would not enter the water and the dummy floated across to the middle of a large lake. Well after several dogs had been sent in after the dummy, guess who saved the day! You guessed it, Archie, a Large Munsterlander! They are fantastic water dogs.

"Munsterlander - don't push me"!

Did she slide or was she pushed? Ginny looks like she can't decide if this is supposed to be fun or maybe a little bit frightening, so 'I'll just stay here and contemplate for a while'.........

"Munsterlander 50/50"

Should she phone a friend or take 50/50? Looks like Annie can't decide whether to go for a good run in the field or have a quick duck in the pond straight in front of her! Maybe she'll just ask the audience?!?!

"Munsterlander short of a picnic"

Not able to attend the Bloggers picnic at Birmingham championship show yesterday, Jesse is holding one in honour except everyone seems to have forgotten to turn up and more importantly..........where's the food?

"Munsterlander sink or swim"

Or don't bite off more than you can chew? Luckily no-one is sitting on the lilo that Jesse is intent on puncturing. Remember the summer that never was? Not many opportunities for lilo's & swimming pools this year!
