Tami was so wonderful to work with! Our GSP Rue is now about a year and a half, and we absolutely adore her. She is a total lover, with a great disposition to love any and all things. She takes commands well, and was a quick learner! Tami was extremely helpful through the process, and answered any and all questions I had.
We liked her so much we're coming back for seconds! We'll be getting a second GSP for our family from her this summer :)

I was swindled out of money from a breeder on my search for a GSP. When we found Hunter Heights, it was the perfect fit! They had puppies available for the right time and it as a match made in heaven. We got our girl from a litter born on June 19, 2015. She has been the most wonderful dog since we brought her home. She is smart, energetic, and beautiful. I wouldn't trade Moose for anything. Hunter Heights was a wonderful kennel to work with too. I am so happy with the dog we purchased from them. She has had no health issues and is a massive GSP! She is a snuggle queen and wonderful with children. I will have GSPs for the rest of my life. Thanks Hunter Heights!

I purchased my german shorthaired pointer June from hunter heights kennel three years ago. She took little training to adapt to bird hunting & field trialing. Even amongst other bird dogs I am almost guaranteed to be asked which breeder I purchased her from. She works the field extremely hard every time we hunt her. The owner of hunter heights was very friendly and helped make sure I got the dog that was the right fit for me. This is her first year doing field trials and she just qualified for the Bird dog federation nationals in marhsall Illinois at the end of the year. I look forward to purchasing another pup from them in the next year or so.

I brought home my Daisy Mae from Tami in December of 2014. I was lucky enough to have the second pick from her liver roan puppies. Daisy just turned 1 on October 28th, 2015 and she has been the biggest blessing since the day I brought her home. She has grown up to be a stunning young lady and I get stopped by people every time I am outside on a walk with her. Her intelligence amazes me more every day and potty training and trick training was a breeze with her. She is the first puppy I have ever purchased and raised on my own and she is my very best friend! Whenever we go to the dog park, I get to watch her amazing athletic abilities as she laps every dog there. Daisy loves to tag along with me on my runs and is the perfect running buddy because she pushes me with her never-ending energy. Tami was absolutely wonderful and updated me when the litter was born, sent tons of pictures and was very welcoming whenever I wanted to come see the pups. I could not have picked a better breeder to get my GSP from and hope to buy a boy from Tami in the near future! Happy Holidays!!!

We purchased Roscoe from Tami in December of 2014, he is one of Laci's pups. Tami was fantastic from the start. She kept us posted on the status of the puppies with pictures and emails from the day they were born. Roscoe has been an amazing dog. He is so smart and extremely trainable. He is very eager to please and is wonderful with our four children, not to mention he has turned into an absolutely gorgeous dog. I would purchase another puppy from Tami in a heartbeat, she is truly a quality breeder and her dogs are phenomenal.

We picked up "Cricket" from Tami at Hunter Heights kennel December 20th, 2014. I wanted to share our experience over the last 6 months. First off, Tami was a real pleasure to deal with. She spent close to an hour with us showing us around her kennel and getting Cricket acclimated to us. Once back in town we immediately took Cricket to the vet to get her established as a patient. The vet was very impressed with Cricket's health and was complimentary of the kennel's care.
Over the past 6 months, we've been training Cricket according to Richard Wolters books/ dvd's(Family Dog, Gun Dog & Water Dog). After 3 short weeks of being in our home, Cricket was potty trained. Yes, there was an extremely rare accident, but that was only if she ate something she shouldn't have. On January 9th, 2015, I introduced her to quail wings dangling from a fishing pole. Seeing an 11 week old puppy point the quail wing was AWESOME!!
She's now 6 months old, and knows all verbal and hand signal commands (sit, lie down, stay, shake & roll over). We worked with her 10 minutes every morning and 10 minutes every evening. She's actually been responding to all commands since about 4 months old. My point is, she's extremely intelligent.
Cricket requires A LOT of exercise. 30-45 minute walks is not enough for this breed. Fortunately, we have property for her to run and places to go for her to swim.....which she loves. Yesterday (Memorial Day), she was retrieving her duck decoy in water, and responding to hand signals when she lost the decoy. We just started training hand signals 2 weeks ago. We hope to have her retrieving ducks by early teal season (Sept.)
Cricket is extremely protective over our 2 year old son. She does not growl or bark at people she knows, but objects she's not familiar with, or faces she doesn't recognize. She's never attacked another dog, but did get a chicken recently. We have a lot of snakes around us, and when she catches wind of snakes, she barks and makes sure we know something isn't right. Late next month, we're taking her to Alachua, Florida to have her complete snake avoidance training with Dr. Bud Calderwood.
Cricket has truly surpassed our family's expectations. My wife is convinced that we'll never own another breed of dog (she's owned 6 different breeds, including German Sheppards). In fact, we'll never buy a dog anywhere but Hunter Heights Kennels. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions. But, before you call, you should know that I'll have nothing but great things to say about our GSP from Hunter Heights Kennel.

I purchased the last pick of one of Tami's litters a small female liver ticked puppy. This puppy is absolutely amazingly smart in 3 days she was 100% house broke and crate trained. she never cried more than 1 minute when she is crated at nighttime. This puppy is loving and playful and full of life but smart enough to know when to turn it off.. I have had a lot of dogs this puppy is far more brilliant to the all the ones I have had in the past. Tami is easy to work with and communicates with you so purchasing this puppy was the best money I have ever spent on anything! I would strongly recommend Tami and her Kennel. I can't wait to put my little girl on the quail!

Our 9 month old Sadie is are 4th GSP. Our first from Hunter Heights. She is so smart and sweet. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her. Tami was a pleasure to work with, she breeds wonder dogs. If my wife would let me, I would buy another.

We got our beloved GSP Tucker from Tami, and he is the best dog we have ever owned! He is the biggest lover and so very smart. When we go to buy another one, we will definitely buy from her! She is great at communicating and sent us regular updates during the process. Thanks Tami for our "son"!

I honestly can't say enough about Tami at Hunter Heights. Tami and I were in contact for about 8 months before my puppy was even born. I had MANY questions for her, and she took the time to answer every last one. I felt she really went out of her way to make my experience a positive one. For the puppies she has, they are beautiful! Our pup Deacon turns heads every where we go. People always say how pretty he his and stop me to ask questions. My vet also said he's one of the best GSPs he's ever seen, and he is a former bird hunter! Obviously my review couldn't been more glowing. Thanks Tami for everything! -Bryant
