Watch for news on upcoming litters. When looking for a GWP most breeders have
their pups sold before they are ready to go. So if the GWP is the
breed you want I really recommend you pick the breeder you want
to work with and put a deposit down early to get the pup you want!

raise this very large litter!
Priscilla delivered 16 puppies 8 boys and 8
girls. They are healthy and robust. Pups were
born on Dec 28th
"We are headed towards
the end of Rosa’s first bird season and what a season it has
been for her. She has been hunting like seasoned pro, she
points, retrieves and hunts dead birds with a precision you
generally only see in an older dog. She has 61 wild chukars
to her credit, 13 wild pheasants and 5 sage grouse and the
best is that she is such a loyal companion/member of the
family. I can not thank you enough for such a great dog. "

"I am a fly fishing,
waterfowl, and upland guide in eastern Montana. I recently
bought one of the pups (Bailey) at 7 weeks. She turned 13
weeks yesterday. I just wanted to share a quick story about
my new pup Bailey. We were in the field for the last five
days hunting. We had had a very good morning filled with
pheasants, sharp tail and chukar. I try and let the puppy
run for at least part of the afternoon and let her burn off
some puppy energy and start getting the feel of her new job.
Yesterday we were one pheasant and 6 little birds away from
our limit for two people. We decided to hike up a draw we
let out Bailey's best friend Reno a Britney and headed out.
We ended up finding and shooting our pheasant rather
quickly. We hiked around in the draw for about another 30
minutes before finding a covey of chukar out in a field. We
shoot 3 out of it and the rest flew back into the draw we
had hunted up. We decided to run the draw back down and
killed 2 more quickly. As we were walking my client looks at
me and says hey the puppy is on point. I look over and see
she that she is. She loves to point at leaves and anything
that blows in the wind. I started to tell him that and
notice my Britney on point down in the draw. Right then a
single chukar flushed and went down. I don't know if it was
her first find or her first back but I was grinning with
pride for the rest of day and night. I just wanted to share
that. I think she is going to turn into a great dog."
UPDATE AT JUST UNDER 5 MONTHS OLD: "I went and
worked just her today she had 6 finds with 4 hard
points and 4 full retrieves - one 30 plus yard
Afternoon! We wanted to share with you our Saturday
experience with the NAVHDA Natural Ability test with
Shyster. Even though she is only 8.5 months old, we decided
to give her a try. She did awesome! She scored a prize 2,
and only 1 point out of the prize 1 category. If we were
better handlers she would have easily made it to prize 1,
but even at that, with boneheads like us, she did very well,
and only 8.5 months old!
Her bite was good, her coat
was medium dense and medium harsh, she did two excellent
points during the search, and since we were so far away on
the first point she snatched the chuckar when it started to
move (after a more than sufficient time pointing) and
brought it to us without any calling. She had tremendous
prey drive too, and tried to chase down the same chuckar
after we dropped it and it flew off. She held her second
point for at least 10 seconds as I came up to her to leash
her since we were done with that test. For her tracking
test, she took a good smell of the feathers on the ground,
then headed into the grass. In less than 3 minutes she found
the rooster and brought it back to me, again without
calling. Only two dogs out of 9 actually found and retrieved
the bird and Shyster did it in much less time than the other
one. Everyone in the group was impressed, but none as much
as Sandy and I. Of course she had no issues with the water
since we exercise her in the river. Her only water problem
was that she didn't want to quit after only two water
Your suggestion to join NAVHDA was
tremendous and we will recommend the same to anyone who
wants to get good help with their training. We ended up
joining the Wasatch Chapter in Salt Lake since it was the
closest to us and an active chapter. For us, we are now
waiting until the 21st of this month and we are going to try
her out on the real deal, sage grouse. We'll do some more
training between now and then, just to keep her fresh on
what she needs to do.
She is a great dog and we are
so pleased to have found your site, you, and your fantastic
kennel. Besides being a very naturally talented dog, she has
become a very solid and loving family member. Some people
say you can either have a pet or a hunting dog, but with
Shyster we have both, and we are very happy.
thought you would like to hear the news. We'll post a couple
photos and a shorter write up on your Facebook page too.
Hope all is well with you. We are enjoying the photos of
the new puppies too, keep posting them please!"
