Since 1992 we have been striving to produce not only outstanding bird dogs but also loving family companions. We are producing dogs that hunt hard in the field but also have the ability to turn that drive off and become a house dog with manners. As you can see from our champions page we are one of the leading German Shorthaired Pointer Kennels in the country for successful NSTRA (National Shoot To Retrieve Association) dogs. We have bred, trained, or handled dogs to 53 NSTRA Championships, 9 NSTRA Regional Championships, and 8 NSTRA Regional High Point Titles as well as having dogs finish in the Top Ten in the Nation 7 times.
We believe in proving our dogs in the NSTRA Field Trials because in order to win in this competition dogs have to handle well, be excellent bird finders, and retain their training, and since most are campaigned by their owners they also need to be good house dogs as well. To compete in regional and national championships, style and endurance are also a must. We feel that with the bloodlines we are using now we are producing nationally competitive dogs.
All of the dogs used in my breeding program are the kind of dogs you and I enjoy hunting behind. They are busy and stylish, yet hunt for you not you for them. They have all been selected for an excellent disposition as well as outstanding conformation. All are natural pointers, backers, and retrievers.
