Welcome to Kiowa Creek Hounds, AKC Breeders of Merit located on the eastern plains of Colorado. We are Susan and Wayne Plucheck and live in the country south of Bennett, CO about 35 miles east of Denver. We have five Otterhounds, one Spinone Italiano, a few horses, various bucking bulls and one barn cat who runs the show. Our main goal is to provide healthy breeding stock that conforms to AKC Standards in all of our K9 endeavors.
We happened upon Otterhounds in 2009 while attending the Denver dog show, we went just to look at all the different dogs, really weren’t there to watch the competitions but to admire all the breeds. We were walking through the grooming area and saw this big hairy dog on a grooming table, asked the lady what kind of dog this was and was told an “Otterhound”. We decided that we would research the breed and once we felt we were ready we would contact a breeder. We waited about 9 months and contacted a breeder and found out that the sire of her litter lived in Colorado, we visited with the family and absolutely fell in love and the rest is history.
In September of 2020 we added a Spinone Italiano to our kennel.
Our first Otterhound litter carrying the Kiowa Creek name was born March 25, 2017. The Little Rascals litter consisted of 4 boys and 2 girls.
We had our second Kiowa Creek Otterhound litter on April 25, 2021. The Animal House litter consisted of 6 boys and 5 girls.
On September 19, 2021 we had our third Otterhound litter. The 70's Rock litter consisted of 3 boys and 7 girls.
