OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

        Vom Covey Run Kennels was founded in 1990, based primarily on the philosophy of soundness of form, temperament, and function in sporting dogs.

   We started with the best foundation stock that we could find, from both American and German Deutsch Kurzhaar (DK) bloodlines, and have steadily built upon and improved that original foundation through a carefully planned breeding program. We primarily emphasize controlled line breeding of our imported German dogs, but include an occasional out-crossing to renew vigor in the lines. The result of this program represents what we believe to be some of the finest versatile gun dogs available in America today.

     Our Deutsch Kurzhaars are all genetically sound, well-put-together animals with even temperaments and beautiful conformation. They are bred for today's foot hunter, and are very versatile, medium-range gun dogs. Covey Run DK's seek to reinforce the German's original reasons for developing the Deutsch Kurzhaar (German Shorthair) - to produce a versatile gun dog that is equally at home in the house with your children, or in the field in pursuit of upland game birds or waterfowl, or tracking fur-bearing animals. Obedient and intelligent, as well as loyal and affectionate, Covey Run DK's are a delight to own and train.

     We specialize in full German breeding of our DK lines, and have puppies occasionally available. Our dogs are found in every possible color combination - from bright white ticked, to liver roan, liver and white patched and ticked to solid liver, and black and white to solid black. All of our puppies are whelped and raised indoors, and are well-socialized with adults, small children, and other dogs. They have their tails docked and are all vaccinated and wormed before they go to their new homes.

Hunting, showing and testing:
 

Chance vom Covey Run (a/k/a "Gauge")      At Vom Covey Run Kennels, we are hunters first, but believe in the German philosophy, that "form follows function". The best versatile dogs perform so well because they are structurally sound and conformationally correct. In order to ensure that our breeding stock conforms as closely as possible to the "ideal" of the breed, we participate in various tests and breed conformation shows.  In particular, we enter German versatile dog tests sponsored by the NADKC and JGV-USA, along with NAVHDA tests. We also particpate occasionally in AKC hunt tests and walking trials, as well as NSTRA fun trials. However, we do so only to showcase the qualities we have "bred in" to our lines. These lines are not "show dogs" and they are not "field trial dogs". They are true, versatile gun dogs in the European tradition.

Our Guarantee:

      Because of our belief in our breeding program, Covey Run Kennels offers an unconditional guarantee against any currently known and discernable genetic defects on all of the dogs we have bred. This guarantee covers such disorders as hip dysplasia, genetic heart defects, von Willebrand's, and others. Additionally, we offer a 30-day general health guarantee from the date of purchase to cover any other non-heritable illnesses. The guarantee is honored through replacement with a similar dog, as soon as one is available*.

COVEY RUN'S SPIRIT

Covey Run's Spirit With Her Limit of Pheasants
 


Owner:
Marlene Jewell of WA

 


Update 11/05/04:

Here are a couple of new pictures of Spirit. She has done so well this year here on the game farms. It is a true pleasure to take Spirit hunting ........ she is the envy of every other hunter here on the island. There is not a day we go out that she does not find her limit. Extremely serious when it comes to finding those birds. 

I can't thank you enough for this wonderful girl. She continues to be the sunshine in my life. Have reservations in Pomeroy for next week. A private game lodge, should be fun. Anxious to see how she does on wild birds this year. Shall keep in touch.

Sincerely,
Marlene

 Thought I would send a short email and some recent pictures of Spirit. She has turned out to be one beautiful, smart, do-anything girl. I had her evaluated with a trainer here in August and he was totally impressed with her natural ability, calmness, focus and instincts. She found the pheasant right off, caught it and brought it back to him.....pretty great for only being 5 mo's old. Spirit also loves to fly in the airplane and river kayak. I love this girl so much. Again, thank you. (the picture is of Spirit and her first quail......we plant them for her on our property and shoot them when she points and flushes.....she loves it!!) Just returned home from opening bird season in Lewiston, ID today. . . took Spirit on her first real hunt. . . she was FANTASTIC! Chukars, quail and doves. . . not too many pheasants this year. Great Gal. . . did not run off once and has a great nose even for a young puppy not fully developed. We were very pleased with her ability and intelligence. Again, thank you. . .            -Marlene
