My name is Wojciech Burski. I am a member of the Polish Kennel Club since the age of 14, ie since 1974. I belong to the Polish Hunting Association since 1978. I graduated inter alia Department of Zootechnics of Agricultural University of Wroclaw. In 1992 I gained the rights to be a judge of trials and hunting dogs competitions, and later became an international judge of the IV, VI, VII, VIII FCI groups. I was one of the founders and chairman of the Board of Continental Pointers Club under the Polish Kennel Club (1999-2004), president of Pointers Club – Commission of the Main Board of Polish Kennel Club (2001-2006). For 8 years I served as a member of the Presidium of the World German Shorthaired Pointers Club. I had also the pleasure to be a member of the Main Board of the Polish Kennel Club (2001-2005). I was one of the founders and then briefly head of the Polish Kennel Club – Branch in Sieradz. I joined the Management Board of the Polish Kennel Club – Branch in Lodz: in 2001-2004 I was the vice-Chairman of the Management Board, in 2013 I was a member of the Management Board, and in the years 2014-2017 I was the president of the Branch Board in Łódź. Almost 25 years I chaired the Cynological Commission of the Regional Board of PZŁ (Polish Hunting Association) in Sieradz. I have organized over 30 hunting club events.
Z Czarnego Dworu Kennel has existed since 1978. In the beginning the breeding work was based on Polish dogs, after fifteen years I established cooperation with foreign breeders. Extensive foreign contacts have a great influence on the level of bred litters. The founder of the new breed was the female ORINA ze Stipek (breeder Ludek Muller from the Czech Republic). I have used and continue to use the Czech, Hungarian, German, Romanian and Slovakian stud dogs. Based on the cynological knowledge, my resources from the field of genetics and practical breeding, and dealings with leading breeders of the world (Karin Stramann, Istvan Nagy, Ludek Muller, Gerd Schad, Albert Lemmer, Zlatko Jojkić, Drago Jojkić, Anne Raymond), I have been trying for years to maintain a high level of bred German Shorthaired Pointers.
Every decision in my fieldwork is deeply thought out. During the first years of my breeding, I was leading my kennel in two directions. The first was about getting puppies based on the line of dogs that have in their pedigrees the best copies of the world’s most famous kennel “vom Hege-Haus”. The other, based on the combinations without “Hege-Haus” bloodline. Instead of it I used other leading stud dogs in Europe. At present, in order not to cause genetic weakening of the offspring, in the breeding I often mix both lines or introduce foreign sputum of blood, also as homozygous. Two World Winners, two World Youth Winners, five European Winners, seven European Youth Winners, two European Club Winners and two European Youth Club Winners [see GALLERY OF WINNERS] come from my kennel. Our dogs have found their owners not only in Poland but also in many parts of the world: USA, Canada, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Romania, Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Cyprus, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Lebanon, Korea, China, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Norway, Finland and Latvia.

The greatest honor I have ever received from the German Shorthaired Pointers breeders was the honor of being awarded by the President of the World German Shorthaired Pointers Club. Unforgettable Klaus Kiefer in 2004 honored me with a gold honorable club badge. In April 2008, I was pleasantly surprised by the Chapter of the Pointers Club, which awarded me the gold badge of the club. By the Polish Kennel Club I have not been honored in my kynological biography.
For many years I aim to achieve high quality of my dogs, both in terms of exterior and working in the field. Every year, over a dozen of puppies are born under my breeding nickname. I hope that my enthusiasm for work on the GSP’s will not be weakened for a long time and I will continue my way to obtain the highest quality material in my kennel. I would like to thank all owners of “Z Czarnego Dworu” dogs, especially those who spare no effort to show them at dog shows, field trials and other competitions.
