We are a small exclusive Kennel, who have been involved in German wirehaired pointers since 1990. In Germany they are called Deutsche Drahthaar and the German governing body is called "Verein Deutsche Drahthaar" or VDD.
The German system of evaluation is the main difference in the breed. They are very strict on health, confirmation and working ability, and dogs that fail in their system, on any of the evaluations, cannot be bred from. Whereas in other systems any dogs can be bred from.
We are based in Lancashire and over the years have imported dogs from Czech Republic; USA; Australia; Serbia and Russia.
In our efforts to improve our stock we have travelled to Europe to use European dogs at stud and imported semen from the USA, in doing so we bred the first GWP AI litter.
All our dogs are health tested prior to breeding.
In order to KC Register, all dogs must be bred from Vwd disease type ii clear(a bleeding disorder which stops the blood from clotting); we test for hips and elbows and also heart test for DCM.
We are the first breeders in the UK to send a blood sample to Hannover University to test for HD, OCD and CMO.
It is an ongoing battle to try and breed from healthy stock and by testing we can try and reduce the possibilities of unhealthy stock being bred .We shall continue to assist where possible in any research into illnesses in the GWP.
We breed first and foremost pets, and if you want your pup to train for a discipline then that for us is a bonus.
Our pups have gone to homes for field work, agility, show, stalking, rough shooting, cane cross and as pets and companions to people who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
Be the first to hear about new litters, availability, and helpful pet advice.
We don't keep a waiting list, however, we do keep a list of enquiries and contact all people on our list, if and when, we have puppies.
Please feel free to either email or telephone to discuss your needs
NB we currently have 2 males and 1 female puppies available, ready to go to a new home.
