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.

Hi Heather,
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.
Thanks again
Joe Williams

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!

Hi Heather,

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!!

James and Heather are great people! At first it was hard to chat with them on the phone but this is only because they take great pride in what they do. HOWEVER their pride shows in their dogs and their abilities. After breaking the ice with James, he is a great guy with some humor to laugh at! He really does know his stuff and after a couple dealing with him, he is a guy you can trust. Take my word for it - You can't go wrong with a Rose Point DOG!!!!

Hi James and Heather,

I just wanted to send a quick Daisy update and a cool picture I thought you might like.

Daisy has been awesome for us. She fits in well, calm, easily trainable, tons of drive and just a super dog. We've been working a bit on whoa this summer and I've been keeping her a little bit back on the birds since she seemed to get too close last year (though it was late season and she just came off the big surgery) and she seems to pick it up very well. She has been holding steady much better that way too.

She also is very controllable outside, I know my Mom and wife would never take our previous dog out without a leash and they'll both take Daisy no worries. Then she gets some very long trail runs with them and loves it.

Health wise she still seems very well, the appetite and drive are completely there and she out runs pretty much every dog she is around. She's still running 3-5 miles at least in the city, and we've been at the cabin where she'll go with us for 12 mile trail outings no problems.

The picture attached is her with my oldest at the cabin on point. There are a lot of grouse up there and I'd love to say that was a grouse, but walking around it was only a tweety bird, but hey I thought it looked cool. She's also taken to solid 3 legs points lately which I have no idea why, but look very stylish. I really look forward to hunting again with her this fall.

Anyway thanks again she is a very well bred, well mannered dog we appreciate.

Lena a GWP- Isn't she beautiful? We love her to pieces. I hurt my back in April.
She has been my therapy dog and makes me walk about 2-3 miles everyday. She is spoiled and that is the way we want it. She is very loving and sweet.She is also a speeding bullet when it is time to run in the park. She continues to be a great addition to our family. She does well hunting too. Mostly though, her job is to be cute and she gets a lot of attention in return!
