Who Are We?

Keith and Carol Daniels

Both of us make our livings from the wildlife of this wonderful world. I operate a commercial tannery where we handle skins from all around the globe and Carol operates a full time taxidermy studio which has been her life long career.

My first Brittany puppy back in 1984 was the beginning of my bird dog career. After 28 years of raising and training Brits, and working a few years for a professional trainer, I gained a pretty good foundation and experience with many breeds. After the passing of my last Brit in 2012, I took a hard look at the Small Munsterlander, and I'm glad I did, they are truly the total package.

I have never been a "dog trader". To me a dog is not a possession, it's a friend, companion and part of the family. If this is the way you feel, then you will appreciate the true uniqueness of the Small Munsterlander, one of the oldest breeds of versatile hunting dogs. Check out our other pages for pictures, information and video's!

New Kennel Building

We cribbed up an old storage building and pulled it away. Now the tree at left will come down and new bigger building will go up, but right up against the old slab where outdoor runs were, so new runs will have indoor housing. Hopefully done before puppies get here!

Finally a Little Progress

It finally quit raining long enough we got the frame up and some of the sheeting, should be ready for the first litter when they are old enough to go outside.

Realized I had not updated this! The “dog house” is done, got a pad poured in front of the door and just got the ground worked up, graded and seeded. Now to work on getting the grass growing good again inside the fence!  


Albert is on the right, he’s standing and Lilly is sitting but he is a taller dog than her.

Better yet, see us in person!

There is no better way to appreciate all the great qualities of a Small Munsterlander than to visit and hang out with one in person!


You will quickly find out that they are surely not just another dog, or as Carol says, not a normal dog!
