About Griffonpoint Kennel (Newtown)
Griffonpoint Kennel (formerly Newtown Kennels) breeds excellent working gundogs. We place a strong emphasis on health testing, proper socialisation and Natural Ability in the field.
Before being considered for our breeding program every dog must be an excellent family dog, pass all health evaluations, show exemplary talent in the field and fit breed and sporting dog criteria for conformation and coat.
All of our dogs are actively hunted. We only select parents that show natural cooperation, drive, desire to work and heart. We work them alone and also in braces, often with dogs that they have never worked with before.
All of our dogs are raised with children and livestock and live in the home with us.
We also offer Training and Boarding for all gundog breeds. In partnership with Higgins Gundogs, www.higginsgundogs.com, we specialise in training owners how to successfully hunt with their dogs. We offer Upland and Trained Retrieve training and work with pointing, flushing, retrieveing and versatile breeds. Brad Higgins is especially effective at training softer breeds of dogs such as the WPG.
We invite anyone curious about our program to come out and shoot over our dogs and/or see us in the field training. Additionally we are glad to provide contact details of Newtown dog owners and Higgins GunDog clients who will be happy to tell you about their dogs and share pics/video of them in the field.

Submitted by: Cody Farnworth on Nov 15, 2012Katy is simply the best. My wife and I researched not only the Wirehaired Griffon for over a year, we researched and called different breeders and found Katy Stuehm and her "Griffs". Katy knows this breed as well as anyone out there and makes sure that these pups go to good families. Katy was great before, during and after we got "Dutch" and has been extremely helpful anwering and showing me how to raise a great versatile hunting dog. Katy's dogs are extremely cooperative and have the "it" factor when it comes to hunting. I am grateful we found such a breeder that really take pride in her "griffs" Again, Katy in our mind is simply the best.
Submitted by: Steve Illingworth on Sep 09, 2012I picked up my first Griffon in April 2012 after talking to Katy and reading many of the Newtown/Griffonpoint reviews on this site. I did not want to gamble on a breeder that did not have highly satisfied clients. I have little experience bird hunting and have never owned a bird dog so my selection of the breeder and trainer were my highest priority. Katy was very helpful and tireless over the next 5 months by eagerly guiding me step-by-step, with the end goal of having a successful hunting dog.
Katy recommended Brad Higgins (higginsgundogs.com) for training. After spending the past 6 weeks training with Brad and Katy I now have an 8 month Griffon that is ready to hunt...without ever having worn an e-collar. Brad's training methods are completely unconventional meaning all training is rewards based, not discipline based. Bottom line this is a great Breeder & Trainer combination and I am 110% satisfied!
Submitted by: John Adolph on Jun 17, 2012Katy is top notch. I met her through my hunting partner that purchased a 4 yr old male. Through our shared positive experience (in the field and in general) when it was time for me to get a new pup I gave her a call. I am an experienced dog owner, but this has been my first gun dog - throughout the process she has been immensely helpful and enthusiastic. She was able to help us find the perfect fit for my family's (and the dog's!) needs. Everybody is happy and heathy, and I would recommend her to anybody.
Submitted by: Gary Belcher on Apr 10, 2012A great experience with Katy Stuehm, she updated us with pictures, videos and preferences for the type of Griffon we wanted. She was always available for discussion and would continue with training as required. A very good experience all round. Highly recommended.
Submitted by: Scott on Sep 27, 2011I had been looking for an adult Griffon and when I saw the listing here on GDB, I immediately contacted Newton Kennels. From day one I have had noting but the best experiences.
While I've worked with gun dogs, I've never owned one. I spoke with Katy (the owner of Newtown Kennels) several times before I met Archie and it was obvious to me in our conversations that she has raised these dogs with a lot of care. Katy was very patient with my lack of knowledge, willing to answer any question I had, and offered hands on training/support that has been very valuable in getting me up to speed.
My boy Archie has been a pure pleasure to own. Even if I never took him into the field he is hands down the best dog I've ever owned. Thankfully I have taken him into the fields and Katy has delivered a solid hunting partner. I'd recommend Newtown Kennels to anyone looking for this special breed of dog without hesitation.
Submitted by: Sarah Murphy on May 16, 2011Katy is an outstanding breeder and trainer. We have two of her dogs, a brother and sister from the same litter. They are the most loving family dogs, great with kids, excellent hunters, excellent on the recall and great mountain biking companions. Ka She and Brad are outstanding trainers. Training is logical, simple and humane. ty has been with us every step of the way. She has helped us, truly 24 - 7. We will not leave our Griffs with anyone but Katy. She is knowledgeable and passionate about these dogs and knows them academically and spiritually. I cannot recommend Katy and her dogs highly enough.
Submitted by: Neil Maxwell on May 14, 2011Katy's hard work and dedication as a breeder of wire-haired pointing griffons is reflected in the quality of the dogs that she has produced. For me, that dog is Cricket who is now almost 3 years old. As a retired 71 year old man, Cricket keeps me active and amused. She was so easy to train. As a result she is very obedient and anxious to please. We are inseparable. She is also really good with the grandchildren. For a great dog and a great breeder I highly recommend that you contact Katy at Newtown Kennels.
Submitted by: Richard Tree on Sep 13, 2010We started looking for a Griff breeder in California over a year ago. When I contacted Katy over at Newtown Kennels I was a little surprised at the lengthy application I had to fill out to be considered for one of her Griffs. I soon realized that Katy took her breeding very serious and wanted to make sure her Griffs would go to the right homes. Katy has been THE BEST Griff breeder I know. Our first Griff from her was simply awesome. Katy was always available to talk whenever we had questions and she is always such a nice person to talk too. We have been so pleased with our Griff from Newtown Kennels we were lucky enough to get our second Griff from her too. Katy has a great knowledge of the Griff breed and has a great relationship with one of the best gundog trainers in the US. We love Newtown Kennels!
Submitted by: Ephraim Learned on Sep 12, 2010Kathy has done an amazing job with Newtown Kennels. Breeding happy, healthy and effective hunting dogs is clearly her passion.
Our two year old Griffon, Lucas is everything she promised and more: From his gifted natural abilities and excitement to track, point, retrieve and watch for commands, his awesome athletic ability, wonderful temperament, smart and strong personality and overall happiness he is a very special hunting dog! In the last 18 months since we have had Luc three of our friends have been inspired to get Griffon puppys too!
In addition to providing us with a pleasurable placement process, Kathy's has continued offer help when ever we have asked for her services! To say that I would recommend working with Kathy and Newtown Kennels is a gross understatement! After a lifetime of of working with many breeders Newtown Kennels has been the best breeder I have ever known.
Submitted by: Molly Lamme on Sep 08, 2010Katy was the best before, during, and after the purchase of "Cali". She had great follow up and has always been extremely accessible to any simple questions since the purchase. Cali was 5 months old when we purchased her and is now over 4 years and is such a perfect fit for our family. I will be forever thankful to Katy for this gift of a fabulous companion.
