Caintha ran her first coursing on 01-08-2004, her second coursing she got pretty seriously injured, her third coursing she picked her first CACC and the fourth one her first CACIL.

She has participated in a total of 77 coursings in many countries and in addition very many “fun” coursings. She has participated in 5 European Coursing Championships and has twice been in second place and 1 time on the fifth.


She carries the coursing titles International and German Coursing Champion, is West Cup Sieger ’08 and is after Calhoun (her nephew) the second Deerhound in the Netherlands entitled to the title “Champion for Beauty and Performance”. She also has the prestigious title “International Champion of Beauty and Performance”. And she deserved it!

Up to two times we tried to get a litter from Caintha but unfortunately Caintha thought otherwise.


Caintha is a very uncomplicated Deerhound. Always extremely friendly to everyone and everything. I’ve never heard her growl or see her doing nasty to other dogs. She’s only a huge beep box.

Cavanaugh died from a tumour in his lungs, Chazz and Connor to bone cancer and Curic Myrrdin to the MRSA bacterium.
