Dogs from our breeding also did well: NJ(L)CH Gokstadhaugen's Mikkie (who also has a 1st price (B) - sired by Janus dam Haugtussa). His litter sister "TIRA" got 1st price (L) 89,5 + another 1st price 88,5p (L) in 2013.

Gokstadhaugen Kennel fikk sine første avls- og jakthunder i 2001.
13 jaktch på 7 egne hunder på 7 år, og flere etter det + NV-09, INT UCH DCH NORDV-10 Gokstadhaugen's JANUS, NORDJV-10, nr.2 NM(B) fl. jaktpr. L+B + 2 hunder INT UCH. Haugtussas og Janus' titler fra utstillingsringen. Mange med CK, flere med Cert og eller CACIB. Det er oppdrettet 18 kull her. Siste kull ble født i april og mai 2013. First litter 02.02.05 - Last litter 06.05.13 - 7 years of successful breeding so far. If you want anything from these lines - use the stud Lotus jr. or Argo when still available. You are way too late to use Lotus jr's older brother, the gorgeous Multich JANUS, who are gone now, so all who wanted to use him have lost that special oportunity. Birk is 12 years so use his nice son Argo if you want to have blood from these excellent lines and Lotus Jr. who has the same genotype as JANUS both in temperament, hunting skills and behaviour and much the same exterior - very like Janus. Not all puppies in his litter looks so much like Janus as Lotus jr. does. Not many of our puppy buyers bother to breed, and we don't know how long we'll be able to have further breeding so within short Gokstadhaugen dogs will be history for ever. TAKK til alle som har kjøpt valp her og takk til de som har startet på jaktprøver og utstilling.
