Re: GSP puppies pedigree

Speaking of pedigrees, does anywhere here use or put stock into COIs on pedigrees? Anyone ever have health issues with dogs that have high COI? Ive read few different things on COIs the lower the better but generally dont want more than 5-10% max.

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

Thanks for the different feedback everyone. AlPastor, I understand the point that there are many good EP and GSP dogs out there. Part of the fun for me is to learn more about the landscape of these breeds and meet different people who have a passion for these dogs both as hunters but also family com...

Thanks! Has anyone else worked with or would endorse nitro?

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

Thanks. I'll take a look. Two other breeders I might ask about are Willow Creek Kennels up in Little Falls, MN and the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club Kennels. Anybody have any experience with them? Both breed GSPs. Thanks!

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

Don't know if you would be interested but I have some Guard Rail-Honky Tonk Attitude pups on the ground that should make excellent foot dogs. I also have a litter that was just born that is heavy Crow's Little Joe with a touch of Attitude blood as well. Both of these litters should satisfy your nee...

I have them on the list & will make it a point to reach out to them. Thanks!

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

Sounds like Walnut Hill, while not in my back yard, is one I'll definitely be contacting to find out about their program and if my needs are a good fit with their dogs. For those of you who have Walnut Hill dogs, what size are the females generally.....50 lbs? Thanks!

Like i said in my original post i don't have plans to compete, trial, etc. I'm a casual hunter who wants to start bringing up a pup behind my current dog. I'd prefer a ...

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

I dont know if I would consider Ross the apex of the pointer world. He has had some success, but not near the success as quite a few other EP guys. Mainly Wright Kennels, Gary Lester, Sean Derrig and many others that have won considerably more and produce very very nice dogs. If you want a guard ra...

Thank you. Do you have any personal experience with their dogs? Appreciate the suggestion!

Re: EP / GSP Breeder Recommendations

GSP - don't overlook Prince's Gundog Kennel in Pittsburg KS. I have one from there, and have seen others from there. Quality gun dogs..... I've hunted with a lot of dogs and highly recommend John Prince. Great, thank you for the advice. Is your GSP from there a house / family dog as well? Good, ami...
