Roughrider Kennel is a small family-owned NAVHDA registered kennel. We are located in the heart of North Dakota pheasant country in Bismarck. For the past twenty years, we have trained and hunted retrievers, mostly Chessies. But, it is the hunting, training and breeding of the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon(WPG) that has become our passion.
Our Roughrider Griffons are the perfect combination of family member and hunting dynamos. We are avid waterfowl and upland game bird enthusiasts. We hunt across the plains and sloughs of the Dakotas from September until January. The WPG's versatility and tenacity is the perfect combination for the variety of terrain, cover, climate and game being pursued. In the off season our Griffs live for training days and time spent with the family.
Our first Grffon Bourg Royal Roughrider's Teddy was also responsible for us jumping into the world of NAVHDA, with both feet. As current President of the Central Dakota chapter of NAVHDA, Dan really enjoys his time spent in the training field with friends of the versatile breeds.
