Two years ago I was getting a Gsp pup from Colo. which is driving distance for me. In the end no pup! Frantic, I made a couple calls and started working with Dave at Power Point Kennels. With some calls, e-mail and pic's Dave had answered all my concerns, a little Power Point High Velocity Zeke was in Wyo. We are a hunting family and one measure is bird contacts. The Zeke is a bird finder,he does it with loads of desire and style.I only have one dog so he gets ran into the ground, he stays healthy and is ready to go anytime he is asked and in the house he is a total baby.I feel Dave was easy to work with and breeds a great line. Only wish I lived closer.

We got a pup for my mother. Picked it up in summer. Very impressed with the facilities. VERY clean and VERY spacious. Very professional. Took time with all of us and answered all our questions. All pups and parents looked very well cared for and very well exercised. No signs of stress like chewed cages or fighting dogs. Lots of room for dogs to run. Very friendly host. Let us hold other pups as well. Would highly recommend this breeder!

I have used other trainers in the past but Dave at Power Point Kennel is the best.

The kennel is well maintained, and Dave is very helpful. Although we bought our GSP puppy for our young kids, I'm simply amazed at how smart he is. In less than a day, our puppy learned the "sit" command. I've raised English pointers and other dogs, and the sit command usually takes several days for the dog to register what it means. Within 3 days, our 8-week old puppy was able to Sit and Stay on command until I released him to come. I can't say enough how pleased we are with our puppy. He loves playing fetch with the kids, breeze to potty train, and he's very good with them. We are not sure at this point (5 mo old) if we will use him for hunting, but we can see those instincts are in him. He loves pointing out field mice, so we may end up training him since he loves to point and flush a field for critters.

We picked Dave Troups Powerpoint Kennel after researching the area that was within driving distance from Southern Michigan to get a puppy.
Upon Visiting the kennel we were sure to have chosen the right place. The animals had a large outdoor area to roam, the birthing place and stalls for the dogs were very clean and we were introduced to the mother of our future female pointer.
From then on communication and negotiations went flawless until it was time to pick our dog up.
We would highly recommend this kennel.

Searching online for a German Shorthaired Pointer breeder that would provide the best possible fit for our family’s needs quickly proved to be overwhelming and daunting. How can you decipher who truly has the best interest in mind for each puppy, the future owners, and also the breed itself? Well, I found one. Dave Troup, owner of Power Point Kennel, quickly responded to each of my questions. Even after we told him we were ideally months away from a puppy purchase, Dave invited us to visit his kennel to look at a female puppy he thought might be right for us. We agreed. We were immediately impressed with his friendly professionalism and clean facility. Hearing his history with the breed and meeting his personal GSPs further confirmed his respect and love for the breed. Upon meeting the female pup, we instantly knew she was exactly what we desired, and we took her home that day. Ellie’s been a part of our family for nearly a month and has more than met the high expectations we formed after our previous GSP. Ellie has the GSP energy and intelligence we wanted. There was no teaching her to fetch; she retrieved the first tossed ball and continues to do so. After the first two nights, she has greeted us every morning with a clean crate. Ellie is curious and thrives with new experiences, whether it be a hike in the woods or the meeting of a new four-legged friend. She is not skittish around new people and is a sponge for affection. She learns new commands and tricks daily now and is swiftly developing that athletic agility GSP owners expect. Dave continues to answers the questions I have and is anxious for updates on how Ellie is doing. My husband & I couldn’t be happier with our new puppy; we are positive Dave’s expertise & his kennel’s established bloodline has everything to do with Ellie being the perfect fit for our family. My husband & I wholeheartedly recommend Dave Troup for anyone searching for a top quality GSP breeder.

Dear Dave,
I wanted to send a quick note to express my sincere thanks to you and your wife for the wonderful GSP puppy we purchased from your kennel last year (Power Point's My Fair Lady - Lexi)! She has been a great addition to our family and she's an absolute bird finding "machine" in the field. While I've been fortunate to own and train a number of nice pointing dogs over the years, Lexi is by far the best hunting dog I have ever had. She has an incredible nose, displays amazing style that includes efficient ground coverage and a high head and tail, has a natural back, and has been an absolute joy to train! I am sharing these comments as a strong endorsement of both the expertise and outstanding GSP bloodlines that you provide from your kennel. You made the puppy purchasing process great, you provided timely and thorough answers to my questions, and the dog you placed with our family was everything you said she would be (and more)! Thanks again for everything and when it comes time for us to pair Lexi with another canine hunting partner, I can assure you we will be coming back to Power Point Kennels!
