My experience with the breeders was just with Linda. Who was always very cordial and very helpful. I would highly recommend her.

My experience with Jaeger (the pup, 8.5 months now) has been interesting. He is very lovable, smart, and a bit stubborn. We have had many enjoyable times with him and some exasperating moments. He absolutely loves people and enjoys being with them. He is extremely inquisitive. I don't think he has a mean bone in his body. He learns very quickly, but sometimes has other ideas when it's time to perform. We are looking forward to the upcoming bird season with great hopes. My wife has never been a dog person and this is the first "in house" dog. She absolutely loves Jaeger and has a tendency to take over when I'm working with him. He is a permanent part of the family. We have enjoyed him immensely.
One other thing. Whenever we take him anywhere, people are continuously coming up and saying what a beautiful dog he is. We agree.

f you have come across Strong Point Kennels and are seriously considering the purchase of a GSP, look no further as you have found the best! I researched the breed and AKC breeders for three years, begging my husband for a GSP. Strong Point Kennels was personally recommended to us by another GSP owner and just my luck, they were expecting a Liver Roan litter in one week! I contacted Linda more times than I can remember in that week, asking all sorts of questions. She happily took the time to return my calls and texts even providing us with her personal reading material regarding the breed. The day the puppies were born I called immediately and placed our deposit! I felt so comfortable working with the Hawkins as I knew, the well being of the puppies was their first concern. We visited the puppies at 1 week old, 3 weeks old, 4 weeks old and 6 weeks old, I might have been a little excited to take our puppy home. The Hawkins always welcomed us to visit and ask questions, not many breeders would have taken the time to do so. Little to my knowledge, my husband and the Hawkins, put a plan together to surprise me with our puppy, Konza the Konquerer, one week early! Tears of joy streamed down my face and it was all made possible by Strong Point Kennels. They aren't just a breeder, they are true friends and lovers of the GSP breed. Our pup, Konza, is now 8.5 months old and a natural at all things GSP but most importantly an amazing family dog! He can be on the hunt one moment and snuggled up against you the next. Strong Point Kennels offers healthy, strong, beautiful, loving dogs that will instantly steal your heart! We are already looking forward to their 2018 litter so we can add another to our family! Thank you Strong Point Kennels for giving us such an amazing family member!

Kenai has just hit one year old and has been doing amazing in his hunting training. He spent two months with an upland bird dog trainer and was hailed as the best young dog he has ever trained. He has been great around the house, and superb with children, was easily trained to heal without a leash, fetch, and perform basic commands. Hands down the smartest dog that I have ever owned. Looking forward to his first hunting season. I have already been approached by multiple breeders who want to use him as a stud more than re cooping any money Ive put into him.

Vaught Hemingway Haskins came to us almost a year ago, and has changed our lives completely. After picking up this scared puppy, he immediately fell asleep in Joshs arms and we fell in love. He has grown into a great companion for us both. From Jess snuggle buddy to Joshs hunting partner;
Vaught is a versatile pet to both life styles. He excelled tremendously at his upland game training and his trainer, Sea Island Kennels, couldnt stop raving about how much of a natural Vaught was in the field and how they had not seen a dog with the natural drive for hunting like this in a while. Along with his upland game skills, he is one heck of a duck dog. During a trip to Mississippi, Vaught performed toe to toe with his Labrador Retriever cousins. With multiple hunting trips planned for the future, Vaught and Josh are both excited to get back into the field. Even during the off season, Vaught sharpens his skills by pointing and stalking the cat.

While a great hunting partner, Vaught still enjoys the finer things in life.
He enjoys sneaking into the bed after were sleeping so one of us wakes up in full spoon position with him in the morning. He enjoys summer days on the boat, going out for a good swim, and also is a great running partner. A perfect pup for our active lifestyle, he helps keep us both in shape if we want to keep up with him. We cant take Vaught anywhere without fellow GSP owners coming up and complimenting not only how handsome of a dog, but we have even had people ask us how we got him to be that color.

With Vaughts distinct markings on his neck and tail, we love looking back at his litter photos and finding our boy when he was only a few days or weeks old. He is a sweet dog and wants nothing more than companionship and to make friends with every dog, cat and person he meets. We could not imagine our lives without Vaught. He has truly been a blessing, we wouldnt change anything about him.

I cannot say enough nice things about this breeder. After knowing for years that we wanted a GSP we were finally introduced to Strongpoint Kennels and immediately fell in love with their operations. This is a breeder that truly loves their dogs and has a passion for the breed. They were always willing to offer advice and would go out of their way to assist us with welcoming a new addition into our home. Even though we originally just planned to get one puppy we came home with two! Best decision ever. These puppies are not only beautiful (we consistently get praise and comments on them wherever we go) but they are some of the most loving and cuddly dogs around. They can go from pointing at doves in the back yard to curled up on the couch with the kids in a heartbeat. If you want a dog that you can lock in a kennel/cage and never interact with then a GSP from Strongpoint Kennels is NOT for you. Only get one if you want a dog that can shine out in the field hunting as well as always smothering you in affection at home. These puppies will always be a puppy no matter how big they get; they want nothing more than to be as close to you as possible and spend all the time they can with you. Once again thank you Strongpoint Kennels for our beautiful babies!
