10/20/15. Bought Dakotah Serenade from Rick and Kay Farris in 2011 at age 9 months, a started dog. She is now Dakotah Serenade NAI JH CGC RN NA NAJ. Very smart dog. I am a hunter. We take wild doves, grouse, chukar, turkey, pheasants, ducks and a couple geese. She tracks and retrieves cripples, points pheasants, tracks and flushes or points turkeys and grouse and retrieves doves. In 2013 we took over 100 birds (30 doves). I have had her track coyotes. She doesn't chase the bears we see, and I broke her of chasing deer and elk pretty easily using a shock collar a few times. She gets along well with horses and other dogs and cats. She is very people friendly. She is easily trained, calm in the house and knows the difference between hiking and hunting and relaxing at home, loves them all. When I need another hunting dog, I will call these people first. If they don't have one, they will set me up. A couple more things, if you want a WPG they need exercise to be happy and healthy and well adjusted, just like us. They also need their people and like to be around them. This is not a kennel dog or hunting only breed of dog.

I purchased my first griffon, Dakotah’s Western Skies “Weston”, from Kay and Rick in the spring of 2010 and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. This was my first bird dog so naturally I had a whole host of questions and concerns about I was getting myself into. Kay and Rick were extremely helpful and provided a wealth of information before and after I brought the pup home. I would highly recommend Dakotah kennels and I look forward to purchasing another pup from them in a few years. Hope this helps.
