After 3 days and only 10 weeks old I am impressed! Took about 2 minutes for the first point with rod and wing! Retrieving the bird dummy and is super enthusiastic! Working on sit-stay-come- heel ... and walks in the park are used for learning to quarter... she is doing incredibly well, should try some water this week yet, awesome dog!

I've added another addition to the family! I couldn't have been more impressed and satisfied with my first pup (Merle) that I got from rose point kennels last year that I decided to get my second pup (Lorreta) from them a week ago. Such great all around dogs and amazing people to deal with. I highly recommend rose point kennels if you want a family/hunting partner! Merle & Lorreta are waiting for the hunting season to start!

I just wanted to give you a quick update on Conrad since he is almost four months old. He is amazing. We are so in love with him! He is so funny and has more personality than you can imagine. Everyday he surprises us. He is also incredibly smart. Always pointing, always curious! He is also a very sweet, cuddly guy. He prefers to be near us when possible. He gets to snuggle with me most mornings and I love it. Conrad is having a great time with Crimson (our 2 year old golden). Those two are best buddies and I'm so glad Conrad has someone to play with. I can't stress it enough-- he is the happiest puppy ever and is such a good dog. Thank you for the funniest, best little guy we could ask for! I have been trying to convince Tucker that we should get another. :) pictures attached! Conrad is a very happy, loved little guy!

Heather and James,
I wanted to give you an update on my pup Dallas. He is a Flint and Penny pup.
He has been out on a few hunts now. He took to birds immediately. Pointing is definitely strong in his genes. He honestly points all birds he sees after going hunting. He has pointed chukars, pheasants, and woodcock. He has worked grouse but they would not hold for a point. Next week we will hunt grouse for a couple days. I am sure he will get his point. I have also thrown shot ducks for him which he retrieved. He is an excellent swimmer.
He is extremely friendly and loving. Everyone is his best friend. I have had more compliments on his looks than any dog other than my female Gordon setter. He is very handsome.
I am just wondering when James thinks more formal training should start. He knows his basics pretty well, but I wonder about the electric collar etc. I also think some time on the chain gang will be good for him to learn patience for future training. Please give me your thoughts.
Anyway, I am pleased with the sweet temperament and hunting desire, and it is sure nice to have a dog that sleeps through storms. I hope the two of you are well.

Joe Williams here. Thought I'd drop a line about Josie. We've spent quite a bit of time chasing Iowa roosters this year. Minnesota seems to have turned into a shadow of what it used to be for pheasants.
Our hunting group includes a Brittany, Gordon and English setter. Josie and I usually hunt by ourselves.
Josie is the most consistent dog of the group (even though I usually hunt with her alone) she's a tank through the drainage ditches they have down there. She listens great and I know that I can trust what she's smelling'.
I really didn't do much training with her from day one, I thought I'd just "see what she can do" and it's proven to be a good idea. She Doesn't chase deer, rabbits or anything else, she's single-minded on pheasants.
Fun as hell to watch. Stays close and listens.

Had Emma out to South Dakota and she did great. Had pretty minimal training just what I did with her and she pointed and retrieved
like a veteran to the field.

Hello! I just wanted to give you an update of our first few days! Marcus loved him and has spent every waking minute with him! He spent all day in the yard and by the pond yesterday. Our cat, Cosby, loves having the puppy around. They follow each other everywhere and run laps around the couch. The puppy has had some accidents but has done pretty well for the most part. I will keep you updated with milestones and pictures, but I wanted to thank you for giving us a new member to our family!

Yes, feel free to use the pictures on your website! We brought him to the vet recently and he weighed 58 lbs. - the vet said he was in great shape (and they love him at the vet too!). He LOVES water, but then we have 24 acres on a river and a pool in the backyard. He enjoyed them both all summer long! He'll retrieve in water - but pheasants is his specialty. He has a great nose and holds beautifully.
He has TONS of energy and is very playful, he likes to cuddle - loves other dogs too. He has Ziggy's characteristics of laying his head on things and up against windows! HA!
Hope you are doing well! I will try to send more pictures of him full grown!

Good afternoon from sunny Florida James and Heather
We just wanted to say we are so happy with our German shorthaired pointer we purchased from you last February. He is truly an amazing well-rounded dog with phenomenal athleticism and a wonderful personality as well. He has already proved to be a wonderful hunting companion and we look forward to what the rest of the season brings! We couldn't even begin to count all of the compliments we have received about him ever since he was eight weeks old and on. Whether the compliments were about his smooth,shiny coat (thanks to his blood-line and amazing food life-abundance) or about his perfect demeanor and drive! We can't say thank you enough, he is a wonderful addition to our home, family, and lives. Thank you again and we definitely look forward to purchasing our next gsp from rose point kennels in the future!
We have attached some photos and will send more after the hunting season! Happy holidays!!
