I got my first griffon from Larry 2 1/2 years ago and I cant say enough about how great he is, his temperament is a perfect family dog and when in the field it's like a switch and he is a hunting machine. It impresses me everytime we go out. Larry was really a lot of help with all my questions and easy to work with and he really loves these dogs and are kept in a beautiful home. I feel very lucky to have one of his dogs.

I own two of Larry's Griffs, not only are they great family dogs but exceptional working dogs. Larry breeds very intelligent, bitable dogs with lots of bird drive and best of all, they have great field coats. My husband uses our dogs to guide pheasant hunts and many clients have commented that our dogs are the best they have ever hunted behind. We have also had success with competition hunting. Winning a national title with our older female and placing third with our younger who was 18 month at the time. I loved training my Griffs and look forward to getting another pup from Larry.

Fifteen years ago, we bought "Hunter" the best all around dog we have ever owned, from Larry. Recently we bought "Timber" from Larry. Just as it happened years ago, Larry was pleasant to deal with and informative. Both dogs flew to MN and it went smoothly and exactly as he said it would go . You can tell by talking to him that the integrity of the breed is important to him. You will appreciate that, as his dogs are the real deal. Timber could be Hunters clone, We're impressed and you will be too! Keep it going Larry, we will be getting another puppy in 2 years. And thank you for the accurate service and quality, as it makes a difference in long distance transactions. You can trust this man and believe us, your dog will be awesome.

I was lucky enough to get one of Larry's puppies a few years ago. She has become a exceptional upland bird hunter. She frequently finds birds in areas that other hunters and dogs have already searched.
She's also a wonderful companion and has fully bonded with the whole family.
I highly recommend Harkins Griffons. Larry knows what he's doing and breeds superior Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.
