My goal is to breed wires with strong & natural pointing and retrieving instincts, which will also hunt for the gun. I am an avid upland bird hunter here in WI.and will not breed any of my dogs until they have proven themselves handling Ruff grouse. We also play the NAVHDA and AKC hunt test games. Two of the three females in my kennel are NAVHDA Utility I prized, and were entered in NAVHDA's Invitational. They did not pass but had respectable scores in the 180's. Both are also well on their way to becoming AKC Master Hunters.
