What Our Owners Say…


As a first-time handler of a Deutsch Drahthaar, I have had the pleasure of owning a male from Fred’s “J” Litter born in May, 2006. As a pup, he pointed rabbits and upland birds, retrieved ducks and geese from cornfields and frigid winter waters, dispatched wounded coyotes and fox, treed raccoon and squirrel. He also recovered two book-bucks, in the fall of 2008, for two very grateful hunters. He is truly a versatile hunting dog.

I didn’t just buy a dog from Fred. Part of the package was his “service after the sale”. While some dog breeders are interested in just selling you a pup, Fred proved to be an invaluable resource to me. With 300 miles between us, and having never owned a bird dog….let alone a DD, I was able to pick up the phone to discuss training sessions and techniques with him. Fred would always offer his insight and share helpful DD training tips.

Fuchsfluesschen Kennels provided me with an intelligent, well-balanced, performance-bred puppy. With guidance and assistance from Fred, we completed and passed the German-standardized tests, the VJP, HZP and VGP, all prior to reaching 2 ½ years of age. At almost four years of age, Jax still continues to improve on his abilities and impress those that come along for the hunt.

Fred’s dedication to the breed itself and the success of his dogs is second to none. If you are ready for a serious hunting dog contact vom Fuchsfluesschen Kennel and get a Deutsch Drahthaar. Fred is not about selling a dog. He is about making the hardest hunting, healthy, intelligent and versatile hunting dog; and seeing that it is properly trained and cared for. vom Fuchfluesschen Kennel, the dogs in it, and the man behind it are all top shelf.

One of the many reasons I selected Fuchsfluesschen kennel was based on Fred’s involvement in the Atlantic Chapter of VDD/GNA. Fred is always available to answer training questions and help as needed with “Orla”, my first DD. I have been very impressed with her drive and desire to hunt. Definitely a high energy hunter but quiet and calm in her kennel. Easy to train with a huge desire to learn and train. Would I recommend Fuchsfluesschen DD’s……ABSOLUTELY !

Craig Coble – Pennsylvaina


After the unexpected death of my dog I needed to find a pup that could handle intense training and long days in the field. Fred went out of his way to get me a pup. Ivan is now four years old and has surpassed my expectations. He was able to handle the training to become a finished DD. He hunts hard and travels well. Fred is always willing to answer any questions and help in the training of your dog. besides breading DDs Fred hosts chapter training days throughout the summer to help members prepare their pup for testing and hunting. GREAT KENNEL! GREAT DOGS!

Brian Sturgill – Maryland


I purchased a Drahthaar from Fred Turjan in July 2005. I could not be happier. Prey drive, search and intense points were there from the beginning. Lost cripples are a thing of the past. My dog continues to impress me to this day with his  athletic abilities and passion for the hunt. With much help from Fred I am the proud owner of a dog that can and will do it all. I am hoping for a new pup in 2010 and I know whom I will be looking to purchase from.

Jim Hepler – Pennsylvania


I have been a bird hunter since 1971 and thought I knew a little something about breeders and dogs, boy was I full of it. Since having the pleasure to meet Fred and be introduced to the best all around breed of hunting dog, my hunting experiences have evolved into something special. The support Fred continues to offer after the sale never dies.

I am now the proud owner of my third Drahthaar from Fred’s kennel and will never stray from this exceptional breed. If your passion is upland, waterfowl, or big game recovery this breed shines above all others.

Fred thanks for a lifetime memorable experiences, it’s all about the breed.

Fred’s commitment to the breed, his line and what would be a good fit for the client is exceptional. This dedication is paramount for the integrity of the breed, the quality traits of his line and ultimately to insure a successful transition for the new owner and dog. Fred’s client follow-up to insure a smooth transition for dog and owner is very thorough and refreshing. Lastly Fred is and accomplished trainer and always available to review any follow-up needed. Yes I would highly
recommend his kennel and blood line. Sincerely Max

Max McAllister – Pennsylvania


Mr. Fred Turjan is a professional, both in character and as a dog breeder. My wife and I were cordially invited to his home and his kennel. We were introduced to his family and all the DDs in his kennel. Mr. Turjan answered all of our questions about the Deutsch-Drahthaar breed. After we purchased a pup from Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar any question or problem we had with our pup Mr. Turjan would answer. My wife and I live in New York state and have been invited to train with Mr. Turjan on more than one occasion. Anyone interested in a Deutsch-Drahthaar I encourage you to contact Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar.

Doug Werth – New York


In my opinion Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar is a premier kennel with a well established performance based breeding program. The kennel facility is THE best I have ever seen. Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar breeding selections are purposeful and provide the owner a DD that truly meets the goals of the versatile hunting dog. I hunt 30 to 45 days a year a lot more days then that are spent at home with the family as a pet. My “N” litter pup has fit right in with my 6 and 8 year olds as well as the neighborhood kids and pets. NOT CATS… NOT CATS AT ALL!
The Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar web site is also great and provides a lot of information about the kennel and the breed.

Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar also helps with the training and care of pups long after you take them home. 18 months and counting…

One negative thing about Fuchsfluesschen Deutsch-Drahthaar can be the owner’s intensity and commitment. This is an observation but not something I feel personally. Fred’s intensity and commitment is all a large part of the reason he
produces some of the best pups outside of Germany.

One more is I still can’t pronounce the name, Fuchsfluesschen.

Outstanding hunting quality and excellent temperament in Fred’s dogs. All of those I’ve had my hands on as well as mine are alert, eager, never quit driven dogs with top quality instincts and intelligence. I will definitely be looking to Fred for another. Another great thing is the quality on hand assistance Fred is more than willing to provide in way of assistance or advice at the drop of a hat or phone call. You definitely want to talk to Fred before you make your final decision on your next all around versatile gun dog!

Doug Summers – Maryland


Fred Turjan of vom Fuchsfluesschen Kennel consistently produces, in my opinion, the finest Deutsch Drahthaar (DD) in the United States, and possibly the North American Continent. I don’t offer this opinion lightly as I have seen 100 or so DD’s
from various Kennels from all over the country (and a few from Canada) perform before I chose vom Fuchsfluesschen. Owner Fred Turjan’s philosophy of “producing the best hunting dogs and companions possible,” is apparent in each litter the kennel produces. These dogs are excellent companions in the field and in the home.

Furthermore, when you purchase a Drahthaar from vom Fuchsfluesschen, you get a guaranteed product that owner Fred Turjan unwaveringly backs, plus Fred is one of the precious few breeders that has a wealth of knowledge and is always there to help you while training your DD. As a novice handler, I have found Fred’s insight, assistance, and knowledge to be invaluable.

If “5″ is the best rating possible, Fred deserves at least a 7.5! The dogs are that good!

Josh Zigler – West Virginia


Very knowledgeable with the Drahthaar breed and history. Always open to helping and listening to cries of help when training your pup.  This breeder is very active in the “DD” organization and supports the North American club in full force.

Kurt Deery – Pennsylvania


I found Fred to be a great guy focused on producing the highest quality versatile hunting dogs. His kennel is ideal and he takes great care with his animals. The first dog from fred had terrific natural talent–a great nose and intellect. I was so
satisfied with the experience and the animal, I’m going back for a second.

Joe, Pennsylvania


Fred’s dogs demonstrate the best of both worlds – intense prey drive with intense points to match, paired with an insane desire to please as well as retrieve under any conditions. Drahthaar are notoriously ‘strong’ dogs to work with, but Fred  seems to have cracked the code in producing incredible hunting partners that are amazing in the field, biddable, and a joy to have in the home.

Roxanne Turner – Pennsylvaina


I bought Nero from Fred 16months ago. Nero is an excellent dog, full of desire and ability. I also got the added benefit of Fred. He has always been available to help train me and Nero in the DD ways. In the 2 yrs I’ve known Fred he has never not
been there for his handlers. I would recommend Fuchsfluesschen kennels To any would be dog owner. Knowing firsthand the Quality of the Dogs!

Tom Weston – Pennsylvania


I have owned one of Fred’s dogs for better than five years and had the chance to observe quite a number of the dogs he has bred in the field and under testing. His dog dogs are consistently well balanced and highly talented, with high drive but
still calm in the crate, kennel or home. Simply put, Fred breeds some of the very best Drahthaars in the U.S and Canada.Fred is always available to help his owners in any reasonable way and is totally reliable. His dedication to the breed and his owners is absolute. Fred will be the first breeder I will contact for my next Drahthaar.

Dennis Higgins – Maine


I bought a male pup from Fred this last spring. He sent me everything I wanted and more. This pup has looks, brains and talent. Living in North Dakota, I get to hunt over 60 days a year and at 8 months this pup is doing it all very well. You won’t find many people in the DD breed that have more passion, knowledge and willingness to help than Fred. He spends a huge amount of time on his breeding program, helping owners handle their dogs and supporting our club at the local and national level. If you’re looking for a DD pup, call Fuchsfluesschen and talk with Fred.

Todd Rockhold – North Dakota


We found Fred to be an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated breeder, hunter, and owner. The facility is top notch and the animals are well cared for. Each pup is matched to the prospective owner so as to increase the success rate of a lifelong relationship with the dog. Fred encourages ongoing training and provides his personal services to help in the process of training and handling the dog, support in getting to know the breed better and any other question or concern the owner may have.Our 8 month experience thus far is one of utmost satisfaction!
