"Bred for generations with the utmost care and science-based methodology, your Deutsch Drahthaar - properly trained - is a versatile predator capable of mastering all terrains and scenarios. One dog can accomplish all hunting tasks: from pointing upland birds to retrieving waterfowl, to tracking blood and fur to engage any size game, and the pursuit and delivery of even injured prey. No obstacle can prevent his return to you with his prize; nothing can satisfy him more than the satisfaction of hunting and working with you."

Simone Favalli, Breeder

Our Puppies

Ca' Rigada puppies descend from proven bloodlines and accomplished ancestors, as documented by their hunting performance and trial accomplishments.
As breeders, we know no amount of instruction can develop a dog beyond its inherent genetic potential. 
As trainers, we know how powerful the combination of exceptional genes and training is in fully realizing that potential.
And as advocates for canine welfare, we believe dogs and their owners deserve both.
That's why every Ca' Rigada reproducer completes the health clearances, instinct tests, cooperative hunting trials, and conformation evaluations required by the Verein Deutsch Drahthaar Breed Authority - and more. Hunting trial and conformation results, as well as hip, elbow, OCD, and completed DNA health testing documentation are available in adult dogs' galleries.
Our program has also been independently vetted and approved as a Breeding Partner by Good Dog (an organization dedicated to linking prospective dog owners with reputable, responsible sources). Additional details on the steps in our puppy process can be found on our Good Dog Profile. To begin our process, please fill out an application and view our contract and health guarantee online through Good Dog (please Contact Us if you have any issues accessing Good Dog).

2020 Litters

The below L & M litters were born Fall/Winter 2020 and all are placed. Our next breedings will be Fall 2021. We are happy to discuss our breeding plans and whether or not a Ca' Rigada Deutsch Drahthaar would be right for you. Please visit our Good Dog profile, and feel free to get in touch with us to discuss further.
Pan x Vroni
Both dogs were raised, trained, and handled through their exams personally by Simone. Pan was a popular sire in Europe, but is one of only two sons of Flic von Wollsberg (Austria) in the USA. He is also an FCI conformation champion and placed 3rd in the World Dog Show. Vroni is the perfect hunting partner and companion, with a sensitive nose and strong desire to cooperate with her handler. She never met a dog she did not like. Both Pan and Vroni have qualified and placed in CAC trials in addition to their JGV tests. This same pairing produced Eike della Ca' Rigada (conformation/coat 10/12), who placed first in every breed test entered - including the VGP in Germany (1./320UF) - all before 2 years of age. Vroni is the grandmother of the vom Böckenhagen L-IV litter; check out our young male Lux IV vom Böckenhagen. Both dogs have grade A hips (highest grade, no hip dysplasia), and are clear of elbow dysplasia, osteochondritis dissecans, and von Willebrand disease (by DNA). Both are clear of all testable genetic and breed-specific disease by Embark Vet advanced DNA testing. This is a repeat breeding due to the exceptional E litter; do not hesitate to ask for photos of the prior litter or to be in touch with an owner.
Olaf x Cora
Simone remembered Olaf's impressive performance at the 2013 Hegewald, and is pleased the relocation of Ca' Rigada to the USA presents the opportunity for Olaf to sire a litter. Cora is a daughter of Nonatula Pan II, and one of the finest hunters Simone has ever trained. She is tireless and fearless in the field, with aptitude for all manner of game. In addition to her JGV tests, Cora has qualified and placed in CAC trials. Cora has grade A hips (highest grade, no hip dysplasia), is clear of elbow dysplasia, osteochondritis dissecans, and von Willebrand disease (by Embark DNA). Additionally, Cora is clear of all testable genetic and breed-specific disease by Embark Vet advanced DNA testing. Olaf is grade B hips (second highest grade, no hip dysplasia) and is clear by DNA of von Willebrand disease. To see offspring from of Cora, please see Havana della Ca' Rigada and Helde della Ca' Rigada. Helde will complete her VGP in Fall 2020, and we are happy to put you in touch with an owner from that litter (H).
