I would highly recommend Upland Hills Kennel to anyone looking for the best GSP dogs avaliable. We met Julie & Brad after a three month search for a GSP pup, 3 years ago.We were looking for a high energy hunting dog. Julie reluctantly agreed to sell us a pup that she had planned on keeping for herself. She has a knack for matching dogs and owners.We recently bred Penny. Julie helped us find a Sire and advertize these fantastic pups,that were not already spoken for.She has a pulse on the GSP breed from all aspects. Whether your looking for qaulity pups,started or finished hunting dogs or top knotch training. You will not have a better experience than with Upland Hills Kennel. We feel blessed to know Julie&Brad and have Penny, one of the best GSPs on the planet.

Julie was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. She has a solid reputation among a wide network of dog professionals in the area, which made it easy for her to connect me with the right trainer for my dogs. I am very satisfied with her service.

Julie at Upland Hills is nothing short of amazing! She was SO helpful when I made the call to inquire about a pup, and has been awesome since that first phone call! The most important thing to Julie is that her pups land in the right home and that there is success to follow. She's answered every single text and phone call (and there have been MANY) and taken so much time to help me with all the questions I've had...she's given me awesome tips about everything from A to Z, and she always reiterates to me that I should call whenever I need to for any other questions. When we picked up our pup, Riggs, Julie was so excited to see Riggs go with us but was also teary eyed to see one of her own go--and that shows her true colors. I truly have faith in Julie & Upland Hills, they will do right by you, and you can trust that.

My husband fell in love with a German Short-haired Pointer working dog while deployed. I decided to get him a GSP puppy for his birthday. My search led me to Upland Hills Kennel. Julie, the breeder, had 2 males available for sale. The pups were only 4 weeks old when I made a deposit on our precious boy. Julie spent the next couple of weeks sending me pictures of our pup and helping me understand the breed. She also kept me up to date on his vet visits and how much he weighed. She truly is the real deal. I could not imagine going through this process with another breeder. If you want a GSP, call her FIRST!

I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT UPLAND HILLS KENNELS (German Shorthaired Pointers). Julie is the breeder and she is the BEST. I have done a lot of research on local breeders (Washington, Oregon) and Julie is right up there with all the others.

When I originally contacted Julie she spent almost as much time getting to know me as I did her. She was insistent on placing the pups with the right owner. She is a wealth of knowledge on GSP’s and remains available to us whenever we need her advice.

We went to see the kennel and meet the pups at week 4 and again at week 6. She had several starter pups a pen and they all looked very healthy. We met the litter and both parents and all were very healthy and happy. Julie was gracious and showed us around the property and met the other animals. We put a deposit down and had the first pick of the males.

When we picked up “Zeus”, Julie provided us a binder with the AKC pedigree’s for both parents with pictures, registration paperwork, shot records and micro-chip and some “do’s and don’ts” for puppies. She gave the first shots with us there present and had a detailed list of all things that she has done with the puppies. Our Vet was very pleased with the care and documentation provided by Julie.

We stay in contact with Julie and she has even offered to puppy sit while we are on vacation. How cool is that? Anyway, I cannot say enough. This is a clean, professional and loving kennel and would recommend any GSP coming out of there.

Feel free to shoot me an e-mail if you need a reference .

Just thought I would give you a quick update on the pup.

He's quite likely the best dog I've ever owned for his age. At this point I
cannot imagine how he could perform better then he is.

I've only heard him bark once or twice, and not much gets me frustrated
faster then annoying and endless barking.
He does not get car sick( first dog ever for me)
He has learned not to eat or touch his food until given the Okay, that took
exactly the first day I made the effort to teach it. He would have been 8
weeks? It was the week I brought him home.
He will sit on command every time now, however sometimes just for a moment
and then he's up again, still working a bit on that.( puppy focus)
He will come to his name ":bushman" like a bolt of lightening about 80% of
the time, the 20% he does not there is usually some strong distraction.
Still working on that too, Puppy stage you know!
The best part is his strong retrieve skills. It took some rather close work
to start, but now he will retrieve the dummy as far as I can throw it,
about 50 yards. I have zip tied pheasant wings to it as well. I have been
able to get him to not only retrieve it but find it more the half the time
when I throw it into long grass and sage and he must work to find it with
his nose.He looks for a little bit then he gives up and comes back to me.

I walk over and say "wheres the bird" and he begins to hunt again. Then
when he finds it, I tell him how great he is and give him a tiny snack bit.
He also drops the bird at my feet and looks up to me for his treat( tiny
little dog rewards). Sometimes he drops it at full run about 5-7 feet from
me. I make him go back to get it and drop it at my feet or hand it to me.
He is spectacular at this for a week worth of training now. I actually feel
as if he would chase a downed Pheasant that was running. It may be a while
before he could catch one. His running skills are still not up to speed. He
would 100% try to retrieve it. I also had him retrieve a rubber dummy chest
deep into the Columbia river too. Not much fear or apprehension of water so
far. We did that right before we went home so I could get him into the
crate in my truck where is was dry and warm right away.

He sleeps on my lap while in the house, and sleeps in the crate over night.
He's the most calm natured dog I belive I have ever seen. He simply never
barks or runs wild. He stays close to me, and is simply a pleasure to be
Thanks again, this was a great deal for me to get this dog from you!
