Sadly, we’ve reached the end of an era. VDD Group Canada recently lost its last founding member, John Bock. One way or another, John was involved with the DD in Canada for the past 46 years...

Welcome to the website of DDWV Canada, the Canadian Breed Club for the Deutsch-Drahthaar. Our mission is to maintain and improve the development of this versatile hunting dog through rigorous application of the breeding and testing regulations established for us by our German parent organizations VDD e. V. and JGHV e. V.

Please explore our site to learn more about the development of this exceptional breed and the systems in place to ensure its continued quality. Information is provided so that you can contact our Executive or one of our Breeding Kennels. We welcome your inquiries.

Recently aggressive and ill-advised actions in some of the provinces are seeking to ban tail shortening. A review of tail shortening info at a will seek to help educate the public on the need to shorten the tails of some breeds, and how the evidence against has been twisted and poorly represented. Also that once bans do come in there have been partial reversals in places such as Ireland, Scotland etc. It is our responsibility to at minimum shape regulation that would allow breeders to continue safely and humanely perform tail shortening and dew claw removal within safety of the whelping pen and close proximity of the mother.
