We just whelped our fifth litter of exceptional Wirehaired Pointing Griffons with the breed standards applied.

Heather, Mark, their family, and their dogs are all wonderful. We communicated with Heather for some time before officially deciding to get our pup. She communicated so much better than I could have asked for throughout the entire process. Photos, phonecalls, etc. It was a really great experience. We brought Raquette home at 10 weeks, and he has been a ton of fun. A healthy, happy puppy who was shown a ton of love before we got him. He is smart and sweet and handsome as ever, and we're starting a great relationship together in the grouse woods and the home. If you're interested in a WPG, give Heather a call!

Heather kept us very informed when the puppies arrived and sent photos weekly. I was even able to video chat with her a few times and she answered all questions we had (as we are first time WPG owners). We were able to go to their home a visit the puppies and we were treated like family! Our puppy couldn’t be a better fit for our family! She is healthy and just perfect! If we can find more room in our home our next WPG will also be coming from Heather! She was absolutely awesome to work with and I would recommend her a million times over!

Heather and her family are great to work with! They send several pictures of the puppies as they grow up so you feel like you already know them. They are very nice friendly people and make you feel like a part of their family. They have beautiful healthy puppies and parent dogs. Our girl Sandy came home to us already responding to her name and listening very well. I highly recommend this breeder!

We brought our puppy home on September 4. Heather kept us up to date on our Luna from the day she was born. She gave us weekly reports and pictures, and answered all questions asked. We got to go meet the puppies and get to know their personalities, as well as meet their parents, and Heather and the family as well. They are an amazing family to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a WPG. We are now proud happy members of the Dutch Ridge Family.

What an amazing experience working with Dutch Ridge Kennels! We had a great initial call learning about their dogs, process, and filled out the application for one of their upcoming litters. After the litter was born, we received so many updates and pictures that made the 8 weeks fly by. It was great to see them training the litter with wings as soon as they could walk too.
Choosing which puppy we took home was a seamless process being able to stop by and meet the litter a few times before choosing which dog would fit best with our family (which was such a hard decision as they were all perfect).
Our pup has a hunting drive and listens so well at 10 weeks with already swimming, fetching, sitting, and sleeping well in her crate. Alexa Mae and Burley were great parents and have the best genes!
You can tell Heather and Mark really care about their WPG's and the breeding process which would make it the easiest decision to get another puppy through Dutch Ridge Kennels in the future.

Heather and Mark know what they are doing! Dash has been with my family for two and a half weeks. He is confident, intelligent and has adapted easily into our family’s dynamics. Including our 12 year griffon Bear. Their methods of introducing the puppies to new and different experiences create confident dogs. I can not say enough about the experience I have had with this process. What great breeders!!!

We are beyond pleased with our experience with Heather and Mark at Dutch Ridge Kennels! The care and attention they pour into the pups and their adult dogs goes above and beyond. They kept in constant contact from the time puppies were born until pickup, we were given weekly updates, pictures, videos, and got to visit before puppy picks. Our puppy is in great health, and we were sent home with loads of information, goodies, and paperwork for her and information regarding both of her parents. Their dogs are well mannered, have great temperaments, and very good looking dogs. The attention and care for their animals was top notch, and we couldn't be happier with our new gun dog!

Wow what an amazing experience we had with Heather and Mark at Dutch Ridge Kennels! We've had our beautiful male puppy for a few weeks now! They were so helpful and knowledgeable from the beginning. I really can't say enough great things. Heather and Mark let us come out to meet their WPGs at their home before we decided on the breed/before liter was even started! They were always ready to answer any questions and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. We are SO THANKFUL for all the hard work they put in, keeping us so updated throughout (with pictures too!), and our amazing new family member! We couldn't be happier. Our puppy was so well taken care of and we've had an amazing experience from day 1! Thank you Dutch Ridge!!!

We could not have asked for more in selecting our WPG and working with Heather and Mark from whelping to pickup. They were responsive, knowledgeable and very communicative with the litter owners. Not only were the parents well-bred and beautifully raised , they are extremely well socialized and trained for hunting and home life.
Our puppy was in perfect health when we picked her up and got a shining review from the vet during her first visit. She is a very pretty dog, well socialized and adaptive. It speaks to the attention and investment that Mark and Heather made in the litter and their life with WPGs.
Dutch Ridge is more than a breeder - they have inspired a community for WPG owners and have provided a supportive partnership in raising our own WPG.
We can not say enough about the experience we had in getting our puppy.
