Julie was aboslutely amazing!
She was always availible to answer any questions we had, and was with us every step of the way with Clover.
We were amazed by how knowledgeable Julie was about GSPs and how much she loves her dogs, along with getting to know each indivdual pup in the litter to help us pick the perfect one!
He truly is the perfect puppy, with a little something for everyone!
He is high energy for my dad, extremely intelligent and easy to train for me (because i love dog traning) , and a snuggly sweetheart for my mom who loves to lay down on the couch and read...
a book with clover on her chest!
When we went to pick Clover up he was in amazing health and was very well cared for!
Since we brought him home he has been nothing but a delight and is unbelievably affectionate and well tempered.
We have all been enjoying the hilarious puppy antics and watching him grow so quicly.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Julie to anyone who is looking for an extremely well tempered, well bred, and intelligent GSP.

Julie and Brad are our dear friends, I did not know them before Shorthairs, we became friends over the phone and then their kennel got our dog Desert Point's Rob. Rob is a truly once in a life time dog, a true versatile hunting dog with hours of wild bird hunting. He has pointed a hell of a lot of these wild desert Gambel Quail. He is also great with dove, ducks, rabbits etc. He is the real deal. This past Summer I and a lot of our dogs went for a 2 month visit to Sequim Wa. where we really got to know Julie and Upland Hills Kennel. We were treated better than family. Julie does most of the running of the kennel and Brad supports her like the way wonderful husbands do. She does everything first class and has only the best of dogs. She is a master of networking and has a support system of friends, kennels, trainers, vets that is truly remarkable. I cannot say enough kind remarks, she is that once in a lifetime friend and person. You will not recreate doing business with her, and you like I will walk away with a new friend.

3 months ago, our beloved 8 yr old GSP passed away after being struck by car. Indy was our first GSP from Upland Kennels. He was an amazing exercise partner and family companion. When he passed away, I contacted Julie to share the sad news. Julie informed me that Indy's sister (Angel) was having a litter, and after a couple weeks, we decided to welcome our second Upland Hills GSP into our family. Julie selected a pup that she believed would be a great fit with our active lifestyle. I met "JJ" when he was 7 weeks old, brought him home, and since, he has revived the loving spirit that Indy started many years ago. Julie and Upland Hills Kennel is more than just a GSP breeder. Through her well loved dogs, she has become a part of our family, and we have become a part of hers. Thank you for raising such great GSP dogs!

We adore Julie Norman and the tender love and care she puts into her litters. Julie was always available for questions and was responsive to texts/phone calls. She sent me pictures of our puppy as he grew older of which we will cherish. Julie drove three hours to the airport to send us our puppy and he came with handmade toys, a puppy book full of information and a personality that we have fell in love with. Our family has had four dogs over the years, and the puppy we received from Julie has been hands down the best dog that we have owned. He is so handsome, so sweet and super trainable and we just adore him. Thank you Julie for all your hard work and for our new pup! Your efforts do not go unnoticed!

Julie is one of the most kindhearted individuals you could ever run into.In our experience with her we found that she always puts her dogs first.Spending countless hours with her puppies preparing them for their future homes.We were very appreciate of Julies drive to better the breed through leading bloodlines and all of the latest and great health test out there.Julie is very Knowledgeable about the breed and if she doesn't know she is very well networked and capable of getting the answers for you.We have been thrilled with our pup from Julie he has been a match made in heaven with our other dogs and Family. Julie Asked several Questions to best suit us to a pup and would even go as far to match us with another breeder if needed.I can't express enough that the welfare of her puppies and the families they join are the most important thing to Julie.Keep up the great work Julie we really appreciate you taking us under your wing and sharing your Passion with US.

I raise one litter of high quality GSP's per year and this year, the litter was huge! I contacted Julie to help me market the pups and not only did she send me top notch buyers, she matched the pups to the owners activities. She is not only very knowledgeable of the GSP breed and lineage, but also has a handle on the best gun dog trainers for specific needs and the best stud dogs available for my females. She has helped me continuously through the trials and tribulations of raising quality stock. In my eyes, Julie is by far worth her weight in gold and a valued resource within the Gun Dog arena. Wonderful and delightful person to work with!

Julie at Upland Hills is amazing. I contacted her at the very beginning of summer, just starting to investigate the idea of adding a GSP to our family. She was so patient, answering tons of questions, and texting with me. My husband and I knew we wanted a shed hunting dog,but also a fun companion for our boys who are 6 and 8. I wanted a dog I could bring with me to my office, but who would hunt with my husband as well. Since picking Bodie up at 9 weeks, he has fit in with our family perfectly. I can't imagine life before him! And Julie continues to make herself available to answer any questions that cone up regarding his training, or behavior. After being home for a week, Bodie was trained to ring a bell to go outside to go to the bathroom! My kids have taught him hide and go seek and numerous other little tricks. We have already taken two family trios to.our cabin in Winthrop, and he traveled amazing! I am so excited to work on his field skills and see what else he can learn. If you are thinking of purchasing a GSP, I cannot recommend anyone mote highly!!!!
