After searching for about 6 months and not knowing what to look for, I came across a kennel named Echo Hill. Upon calling Blake and discussing my situation with him, it was obvious that he was more interested in making sure this was a right fit than it was selling me a puppy.
Blake was very personable and offered all different advice prior to even picking up the puppy. Once we picked up our Male puppy we were amazed at how calm his adults were and excited for our pup to be like them.
At 3 months old I had our pup Remi out in the field with a well known professional trainer, that wanted to see Remi, and he had a very strong and solid natural point, and the trainer was very impressed. Blake spent the time emailing and having phone conversations on how to properly train Remi to guide and for upcoming Hunt Tests. When I took Remi out others were amazed at his progress at such a young age.
On Remi's 6 month old birthday I took him to guide on a veterans hunt. The hunters weren't too happy with a 6 month old pup helping guide with the 4 other trained dogs. 3 hours later, 5 out of the 8 birds in the bag, Remi had pointed and/or found wounded where the older trained dogs couldn't!
None of this would have been possible had Blake not taken to time to physically train with me. I would recommend anyone who wants a family hunting dog with Master Hunt Test quality to pick a pup from Echo Hill. My kids, Wife, and friends all love to have the pup around! And I know your family will too!

I was extremely impressed by Blake and Echo Hill Kennel! I purchased my first GSP pup from Blake this June and the experience was great! After talking to and emailing 8-10 different breeders with non personal responses, Blake took the time on the phone to have a real conversation with me that lasted 25 minutes. He took the time to listen to what I wanted in a pup and explain in detail about the two litters he was expecting and which one he recommended for me. He told me about each parent and explained the entire process to me.

Throughout the 8 weeks after the pups were born, Blake was very helpful in helping me select the pup that was right for me, as well as explaining what I needed to know to start my training. My pup has been a wonderful addition to my family, as well as extremely impressive in my early field and bird training. I would recommend Blake and Echo Hill Kennel to anyone looking for a GSP pup.

It doesn't get any better than Echo Hill Kennel! They produce absolutely gorgeous dogs that are well trained and well loved. Your puppy won't come from just a "kennel", but rather a wonderful home. In 2013 we purchased a pup from Echo Hill. This is the first time we've chosen one without a personal visit; but thanks to Blake, I felt like I knew our puppy before I met him. He answered all of our questions, provided personality insights, and sent dozens of both individual photos and the puppies at play. We now have an extremely intelligent, easily trainable 4 month old male. If we could have designed the perfect GSP, it would be the one Echo Hill produced. If you are looking for a hunting companion who will be your best friend, Echo Hill is the first kennel you should contact.

My name is Sharon and I purchased a finished dog from Blake last year. This dog is the best trained dog my husband has ever hunted with. In the house, he is a perfect gentleman. He's never on a leash in the front yard, never chases the neighbor cat, never goes in the street, always comes to "here", and I can't thank Blake enough for this exceptional dog. If you're looking for a great puppy or a trained dog, you've found the right guy!

I purchased my gsp puppy from Blake in 2007 I have never owned a puppy so intelligent and easy to train. Not only is it a great hunting dog but also a great house dog too. Blake was there to answer any questions I had and was willing to take the time to show me the proper way to start my new puppy.
