Our aim is to produce dogs for dual purposes - show and work. Each dog whose progeny is to be registered under the Club has to fully complete breeding rules which consist of working exam(s), a show, examination by the Club commitee and (in case of HSP) Hip Dysplasia Test. More info about our Breeding Rules you can find HERE and lists of Stud Dogs HERE.
The Club is dedicated to classic hunting in the form known in the Central Europe. We are constantly trying to produce true versatile dogs and we are pleased to say that a lot of our representatives has succesfully passed the All-Round Exam (field-water-forest).
The Club itself organises two competitions based on versatile hunting. The first of them is "Memoriál Prof. Jaroslava Svobody (CACIT, CACT)" organised as the All-Round Exam. MJS - takes place every odd year (2005,2007,2009,etc.) and is dedicated to one of the biggest personalities of the Czech hunting - Prof. Jaroslav Svoboda. The second one is "Memoriál MVDr. Jiřího Michálka (CACT)" organised as the Field-Water Exams. MJM - takes place every even year (2004,2006,2008,etc.) and is dedicated to founder of our Club and one of the first HSV and HWV breeders in the Czech Republic, MVDr. Jiří Michálek.
