Christy and Elliot have been great to work with and produce amazing dogs. We've got a great puppy who just completed her first year of hunting and is everything you could ask for in a Bird Dog. Sage has a tremendous nose, tons of drive and is super athletic. She's an even better dog around the house and we couldn't be happier with our Idaho Outback Griffon. I can't say enough good things about dealing with Christy and Elliot. If your looking for a puppy from them you may have to wait a bit because of the demand for their dogs but it's worth the wait!

I can't say enough about how wonderful our dog Redek (Shine) is. We researched the breed for a long time and Im so thankful I ended up getting a pup from Christy at Idaho Outback. I have had shorthairs in the past and I was very thankful for the time Christy spent with me explaining the special characteristics of the WPG. She knows her breed and obviously loves her dogs. Red has been doing extremely well in the field already this first season (only 3-5 months old). He pointed multiple pen raised birds in the field, as well as 3 deep water duck retrieves. Amazingly smart and willing to learn. Could go on and and on but i'll save you. Great experience. Great dog.

We live in Florida and flew out to pick our puppy up March of 2018 . Christy was incredibly patient and helpful in the weeks leading up to our pick.
She has been a delight. She is very birdie and has a great sense of humor. I am thankful to Christie for this super pup.

Timber (Chrome x Justice, Jan 2018) is our first dog and first wirehaired pointing griffon. We love our guy and get comments from our trainer, family and friends about what a great dog he is growing up to be. Very little phases him and he LOVES everyone. He was sleeping through the night within a week and not a peep from him when he is in his kennel. It took him all of 5 minutes to figure out swimming and we now have a water retriever. He picks up new commands very quickly, although sometimes he is almost too smart and figures out how to get around the rules. He was the only dog in our puppy class to figure out some of the weekly "challenges". His hunting drive is incredible. His natural instinct never stops amazing us - with no training he is pointing and tracking. We live near storm ponds and big fields so we need to adjust timing for walks to include rabbit, magpie, robin, duck and goose time. We are looking forward to working with him in the field this fall. Christy has been amazing throughout the process, answering all our questions about the breed and providing tips/advice since he came home. We couldn't pick our pup in person so Christy worked closely with us to understand our lifestyle and matched us with the perfect moderate energy boy. I highly recommend Idaho Outback Griffons. If you are willing to put in the time and energy you will have a great dog!

Otto joined my household in January 2018 at 7 weeks old. I got him as a companion dog so can’t comment on hunting abilities, but he’s smart, learns quickly, has a very loving personality, and is adored by everyone who meets him. He’s well behaved in the house, and was housetrained within a week. My experience with the breeder was great leading up to my getting Otto and continue to stay in touch as they enjoy getting updates on the puppies. I recommend Idaho Outback Wirehaired Pointing Griffons!

Our puppy Andie from Idaho Outback Griffons is everything and more than I expected. She is a very smart puppy with exceptional hunting instinct. She is 10 months old. We have been training since the day that we brought her home at 7 weeks. To tell you the truth you don’t have to do much training on her hunting abilities. She has a strong enthusiasm for hunting and a goodRtn nose. This winter I took her out in the snow and she would track just like always. She is a good friend and companion. She behaves well in the house. She has never chewed up anything except her toys.

I am so amazed with our griff we bought from Idaho Outback Griffons. I have had limited experience training bird hunting dogs but in just over a month of having him he is pointing dummies, dead birds and live birds. Both in plain sight and hidden in the bushes. He holds his point well without distraction. I have him retrieving about 50 yards on dry land and 20 yards in the water and he is well on his way to understanding and following hand signals. In the house he is calm and a joy to be around. Did I mention he is already trained to sit and come to the whistle? Elliott and Christy are Awsome people to work with and will help you with anything and everything concerning your Griff. They are both professional and personable. I can't say enough good things about Idaho Outback Griffons.

I researched Breeders and came up with Outback. We are not hunters, so I was worried we would be rejected. We wanted a female and we were #5 on the list. Thankfully it all worked out. And we got the one we wanted from the photos, which was almost strange. Hannah is a marvelous animal! She is all nose! She hunts every time she walks out the door. It is so ingrained that I feel she could hunt with anyone with no training. We take her to a park daily so that she can run. She is extremely high energy. It is a commitment getting a Griff. They need to be with their people and able to get plenty of exercise. She is a marvelous companion for us. Christy chose the right one for us! AND, did I say, She is beautiful and healthy! 3 years old - Twister/Chrome litter, Oct.1, 2013
