vom Gänsehimmel  Kennel

My name is Rick Hartle and along with my wife (Jan) we run a Deutsch Kurzhaar kennel in North Central North Dakota. We are located in Grano, North Dakota near Lake Darling Wildlife Management area. Our first Deutsch Kurzhaar litter was whelped in the Fall of 2001. This litter was out of Hella vom Eichelspitz. As our kennel name we chose vom Gänsehimmel (goose heaven or goose skies) since we are on one of the major migration routes for waterfowl.


Our second female was Ilka vom Osterberg, she was the back bone of what we are building off from to form our own kennel line. I have ran numerous dogs in the testing system and still have so much to learn in this area. But I found that it is very addictive and that I enjoy it so much. Just as important is that my wife Jan enjoys it. We have ran dogs in the Derby, Solms, HZP, VGP and NAKP and I would like to go further some day and run dogs in the IKP, or Kleemann and even VJP and a SW, but that is down the road.
