It is with great sadness that the owner of Nighthawk Kennel and our father, Alan White, has passed away. We are in the process of sorting out various items, including the kennel and the dogs. Please contact us at with any questions or if you have booked a puppy and we will respond at our earliest convenience. Thank you for your                                                   patience and understanding during this difficult time.                                                                                                          -Children of Alan White

                                                                Developed by the late JF Hans Wagner                                                                                                     nearly a century ago and first registered                                                                                                   with United KennelClub in 1912, this                                                                                                         bloodline is bred for one reason: to catch                                                                                                 game. These working trail and tree hounds have satisfied the most demanding houndsmen across the United States and around the world trailing and treeing a wide variety of game. A strain that a cold track with a beautiful bugle-horn voice and natural stay-put tree dogs that tree accurately. Intelligent hounds with plenty of grit and heart.

We acquired our first Wagner Nightrider hound over 55 years ago. Through a selective line breeding program of now over 20 generations, we have been able to maintain & improve on these traits that have made the Wagner style of hound legendary.

Training is not necessary, just exposure to desired game in the proper environment.
Over half of our customers are repeat buyers, some many times over. Several situations of three generations of houndsmen hunting this old Iowa bred Wagner/Nightrider bloodline.
