Hongfjellets Kennel

Hongfjellet er et oppdrett av strihår som har som målsetning å lage jakthunder med utmerket gemytt, svært høy jaktlyst og som har robuste bruksegenskaper med godt hårlag. I avlssammenheng blir det lagt vekt på hundenes egenskaper i nevnte rekkefølge og en søker å videreføre gode egenskaper fra foregående generasjoner.

Hongfjellets hunder er kjent for sitt gode gemytt og sin sterke arbeidsmoral. De jakter like godt i dypsnø som på høstføre og holder koken hele jaktdagen gjennom uten problemer med poter o.l.

The philosophy is to make a better dog and strive for perfection by using dogs that are capable of bringing
the breed forward. When planning litters all of Scandinavia’s GWP clubs are contacted in search for the perfect Stud.
