Cedars Point has been working towards their beginning as a selective breeder of Small Munsterlanders since the approval of Cedar as a stud in 2018.  We currently own three breeding females and Cedar our stud.  As a late onset hunter and breeder we have accomplished great things.

  • Our first two litters received North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) Natural Ability (NA) Breeders Awards and Small Munsterlander Club of America Breeder and Sire Awards.  The NA awards we earned with two of our bitches.  Our stud sired both of the litters as well.  Our third bitch has yet to be bred and came from an NA Award litter sired by our stud so we expect the same from her.

  • Gosch's Cir Conn-Cedar has sired three Breeders Award Litters, two for us and one for a first time breeder, BB's Kennel, out of Iowa.

  • Cedars Point Angus Hunts Sirius, an "A" Litter pup is the youngest Small Munsterlander born in North America to achieve a maximum score of 112  and a Prize 1 in the NAVHDA NA test at 4 month of age.  He still had puppy teeth testing day.  An article written by Brenda sharing his unique story can be found in the November of 2021 Versatile Hunting Dog Magazine here.  Al link is also provided in our blog.

  • Cedars Point Confident Trulee, one of our "C" Litter pups, was recently accepted into the Penn Vet Working Dog Centers K9 Training Program with the hope of achieving a FEMA Certification in either drug, bomb or human detection.  Trulee was 10 weeks of age when accepted into the program.  You can follow his progress here.

Gosch's Cir Conn-Cedar is willing and eligible and we are open to considering all interest but will only approve appropriate pairings from hunt test proven, health check verified females that meet the breeds confirmation standard.   We also seek to place dogs in homes where there inherent nature can be employed and where there's an understanding that preservation of this breed is reciprocal.    

Bottom line, Jeff, Brenda, Cedar, Yetta, Aster, and Soda are a team who hope to grow the community of  Munster lovers.  We want to thank Chris Gosch with Gosch Kennels, Michelle Wilber with Brush Dale's Kennel and Janet Hartigh with Riava Small Munsterlander Hunting Dogs for supporting us in our dream of owning, hunting and breeding  Small Munsterlanders. Without Chris, Michelle and Janet none of this would have been possible.  If you desire to know more about our kennel please call, write or schedule an appointment to visit or hunt with us.

IntCH Gosch's Cir Conn
Stud, Machine, Founder

Cedar is a loving companion with ample expression in the home.  In the field he is a tireless hunter taking advantage of his correct proportions, stellar nose and staunch point to bring game to the table.  He has hunted extensively wiley ring necks, sharptail, ruffed grouse, prairie chicken, and both fowl and fur in South Dakota and Minnesota. 

Eisha z Romanova Chovu
Terror, Lioness & Lover

Eisha, formerly known as our little lion is driven.  She's is independent and loving all at the same time.  It was exciting to see her on SD roosters, sharptail grouse, prairie chicken and on a holding a now dead coyote before her first birthday.  She now lives in a loving hunting home in Illinois where we are confident she is spoiled daily.

IntCH Brush Dale's You Can't Fence Me In
Looker & Smarty Pants

Yetta is like the wind afield.  She's absolutely stunning to behold.  Living up to her name she's beauty and sneak all in one.  With stealth nature, dashing appearance, and both loving and independent flare she rarely goes unnoticed, though she could.  Yetta stands for ruler of the house and she lives up to this alpha character, though Cedar has yet to relinquish top dog stature. 

NaCH BB Kennels Aster
Gentle Spirit & Star

Aster is our royal SUPER STAR, taking after Cedar's regal nature.  Calm, loving, quiet with an insatiable prey hungry spirit she'll take your heart and lead you directly to the birds. 

Miss Dakota knows how to charm.  She's a crowd pleaser with an extremely calm temperament.  If she could talk we're convinced people would listen.  As a natural retriever and healer with a staunch point and highly cooperative nature she works very collaboratively afield bringing all dispatched game to hand.
