We received our Idaho Outback Griffon in Sept. 2015. He is the perfect match for our family and a hunting machine. He's the definition of the versatile dog. He knows what his job is and is constantly bringing us random things whether we want them or not. We couldn't be more happy with him.

We received a pup from Idaho Outback this Spring. The entire process from the beginning was a pleasure. Christy does a fantastic job of making the experience a smooth one, and helping to match the right pup to the desired needs of her customers. The care and diligence that goes into Idaho Outback's Griffon breeding to keep the lineage is top notch. I am an avid upland game bird and waterfowl hunter, and these Griffons have amazing versatility to do both. We were able to visit the litter at 5 weeks and do some testing on prey drive, dispositions, etc, to help us make the choice, and was there for 1.5 hrs - Christy was very patient in allowing us the time to help us make our choice.

I have one Griff from Idaho Outback Griffons. She's perfect in the field, with the family, in the office, basically everywhere I travel. I can't imagine having a better all-around dog.

Have two Griffons from Christy. Great dogs with great energy and couldn't be more loving. They love to hunt and want to go every time you open the gun safe. Love them.

About 3 and 1/2 years ago we were researching breeders to find a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. My husband is an avid hunter and all of our research indicated that this was the dog for the field and would fit perfectly with our young family. That's when we found Idaho Outback Griffons and have never looked back. We worked closely with Christy over phone and email to choose the right puppy for us. We were unable to go get her and see her before she came to our home but Christy made sure we got the right dog for us. Mavis is a champion in the field and my husband couldn't ask for a better hunting companion. More than one hunter has asked to buy her on the spot after going out with her!!! No luck, guys! We also wanted to keep our breeding options open and Christy made sure we had a good candidate for that as well. Her commitment to the breed is fabulous and I can only hope I am half the breeder she is one day. Mavis just had her first litter and Christy is still committed to her success. There have been quite a few late night/early morning texts and messages from me asking questions and she has been right by my side (although we live quite far from each other. lol). Christy's commitment to the Griff breed and to the pups born at Idaho Outback Griffons is second to none!!!

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have had 3 wonderful Labradors in our household for the last 38 years. The one we currently have turns 9 this month and we decided 1 1/2 years ago she needed a companion. I've come to really enjoy hunting behind a pointing dog so we discussed the possibility of going with another breed from the one we had grown to love. I spent countless hours researching different breeds that would fit the bill of a great household pet and a top of the line pointing upland game dog. The Griffon seemed to fit the bill and after even more research the decision was made and we turned our attention to breeders. We narrowed down our list to 3 and after conversations with all 3 Christy and her Idaho Outback Griffons won out hands down. Starting with just how utterly cool the dogs are and then when you add in the concern Christy has about the breed, about her dogs and about her puppies it became a no brainer. During one of our first conversations she made it clear that she always tries to place the right puppy with the right owner based off type of lifestyle of the owner and personality of the puppy. We were very fortunate to be able to get a puppy from their next litter born 31 Dec 2014. Our pup, Mocha, exceeded expectations as Christy was able to meet all our requests pertaining to color, coat length, personality and hunting traits. Mocha is off the wall funny and sweet until she's in the field and you have a gun in your hand and then it's all business. We picked up Mocha the day after Valentines Day in 2015 and have never regretted it. She's the full package and has been the perfect fit for us. Our Lab now acts like she's 5 years younger trying to keep up with the youngster. Thanks to Christy, her family and the whole Idaho Outback Griffon operation for raising and maintaining such an awesome breed of dog!! Teryl Hammer

After a lot of research we were so pleased to talk with Christy. She was quick to return our call and answer all the questions we had about the breed. Being new to dealing with a breeder it was a very nice experience.
From the moment we picked up our puppy it was apparent she took the time to help us find a puppy the was right for us.
Archer was not only the exactly the personality we had been requesting, but a year later he IS the dog for our family.
His natural hunting instincts were apparent at a very young age. Idaho Outback Griffons has an amazing balance for the family dog that not only loves to please but can't wait head out to the field.
Thanks in South Dakota!!

Our WPG, Camry, is a beautiful Griffon, with a very Griff-typical temperament, excited when it's time to hunt, very active, learns quickly, good nose, good retriever; she's happy at home and in the field. She came to us very well-socialized, vigorous, and healthy. She blended right in with our family and other dogs.

Christy knows her dogs and works to find a good match for her buyers. It was a pleasure to work with her; I'm sure we'll get our next dog from her.

Christy Holt Owen is a great breeder who cares about the integrity of the breed. I got my male Griffon 3 years ago from Christy. She played a large roll in selecting the perfect match dog for me, mellow at home and an excellent bird dog with a great nose. He has turned out perfect for me, mellow at home and a great bird dog in the field! He finds birds readily and goes on point giving me ample time for good position for the best shot! We hunt chukar almost every week and Gunner never disappoints. He is easily the best dog I have ever owned! He is my best buddy!
Happy in Nevada!
Thank you Christy!

About two years ago, my husband and I drove from our home near Olympia, WA, to Idaho to meet Christy in person after many phone conversations. She and her family had obviously lovingly handled the puppies in Rose's litter. All of them followed people happily and Rose looked healthy and true to Wirehaired Pointing Griffon standards. The financial deal was as expected.

We also met the main subject of those phone calls, about 8 week old "Blossom", soon to be named: Chrome Rose's Camie, (for feminine Camouflage). From the first day, Camie has been what I had hoped for, loving, energetic, runs extremely fast and leaps over three feet high, and swims, but mellows when needed and with the most sensitive nose. She LOVES BIRDS! If she hears gun fire or fireworks, she looks to find where the birds are. She also chases rabbits and squirrels and learned to Find antlers! Camie has not had professional training, but does very well in the field with me.

Christy raises great Griffons.
