re-opening this conversation.
backstory: after I did this thread, I ended up with another Springer who is an absolute sweetheart. she is the sharpest of the three I have owned. but, now I'm going to be 64 this year. and I am looking forward to taking a more relaxed approach to my grouse and woodcock hunting. My buddy hunts over a Spinone and she is also a sweetheart. And she is very easy hunting, doesnt range and moves slowly and purposefully. we alternate dogs during the day.

But, now I want to really look hard at a pointing dog. English setters are high on my list , always seem mellow and affectionate when not in the field.
But, the Kleine Muensterlander really intrigues me still.
so, now 9 years since I wrote this, I am soliciting new input.

Does anyone have any suggested breeders?
I am looking at Robingun Kennels as a possible breeder.

I am not opposed to an English. I want mellow dog at home and nice easy hunting dog in the field. That will retrieve.

I don’t have any personal experience with English Setters or Muensterlanders. The Muensterlander sounds interesting to me, based on hunting Partridge and Woodcock in NH and ME. We have a 2 year old English Springer who has shown great promise in two seasons of hunting. He’s a great family dog as well. A flushing dog seems to be ideal where we are. Previous dog was a GSP I got when stationed in Washington state in another lifetime…an awesome dog but really too big a running dog for the Partridge woods. He was dynamite in South Dakota and on Ptarmigan in Northern Quebec…. For a lot of reasons, great hunting, excellent family dog, smaller size, I’ve been very happy with our Springer.

Best of luck in your search! I’m sure that you’ll find a great companion with either breed.

Still on my first one. 6 means the one in charge. (theoretically)
I refer to her as broomrider 6 but not as a term of endearment for sure

The Spinone really intersects me as well. They look so mellow on point and I presume would not tire easily in the field or pick up burrs. I have been a one-dog (Griffon) household since I began the journey 10 years ago. For sometime I toyed with the idea of an alternative breed but in the end purchased another Griffon. My dog #2 is about seven months old and is currently with a trainer being “started” as I am a very poor dog trainer. You very well may wind up with yet another Springer based your track record!

Don't know about the Small, but I have a friend who has owned Larges for over twenty years and loves them. He is mostly an upland game hunter.

Brian, Gunwolf, member here is a breeder of that breed. i am sure he can give you some advise. Pitty that he live in Germany, but his dogs won many prices at concours.
Cheers, Marc.
