GSP breeder options

Postby RowdyGSP » Fri Sep 23, 2022 8:53 pm

Didn't want to hijack the other post. I'm looking at another GSP pup in the spring or summer. Rowdy's breeder is on the list. Rowdy is line bred Tonelli's rising son of field trial lines and he also retrieves including ducks out of water. I also like Dunfur Kennels, Dan has some real nice dogs. Open to suggestions or even groups or people to talk to hunting clubs, NAVHDA groups, etc regarding pups. It's been a while since I've researched puppies. I like a dog that will adjust to cover and get out 200 to 400 yards in the open sharptail and hun and chukar stuff but stay closer on pheasants. I hunt 75% upland and 25% waterfowl. Rowdy is pretty high strung and vocal around the house which is my only real complaint about him. I'm really looking for a NAVHDA type that will range out a bit or a field trial type with strong natural retrieving. Preferavly in the PNW or Inland NW or MT, Dakota's, Nevada, etc. Somewhere reasonably close to drive from North Idaho to.

I'd talk to Fred Rice at Sundance Kennels. Fred's dogs are beautiful and versatile, doing well on wild birds, FTs and NAVHDA.

Also Sharpshooter lines which there are numerous folks carrying on, several of them in the Heartland NAVHDA Chapter.

I have shipped 4 pups from the airport in Boise to Missouri because that was where the genetics I wanted resided. I would not limit your search to geography but get the best genetics available.

There is normally a long waiting list for a Sharpshooter pup from their kennel. Prairie Valley Gundogs just whelped a nice litter of Sharpshooter GSP's. Both sire and dam are NAVHDA tested the sire being a VC.

Here is another kennel that raises nice GSP's. Located in Wyoming. Cheryl is dedicated to the breed and test in NAVHDA.

Thank you Kent, I reached out to a couple of the breeders you recommended, as you know I've been talking to Darin and waiting to hear back from Fred.

Harvey, yeah I AM looking at one ugly dog breeder, but the wifey says "they're ugly" and wants a GSP. I told her they're called ugly dogs for a reason.

Coveyrise, thank you for those, as well. I do know Cheryl as well. One guy I talked to yesterday has a linebred Sharpshooters litter coming up in the Spring if all goes according to plans. He's got some Chippewa dogs in the pedigree as well. Thank you all.

Harvey, I made a decision today after talking with several breeders. Getting a Sundance pup Augie x Briar out of Missouri.

I'm a GSP guy. I really like wirehairs too. That 11 year old wirehair Sage, I rescued was a real nice dog. Helluva nose and sassy old gal too

Have first pick of females. Yes I talked with several breeders and my gut told me this is the one for me. There was a nice linebreeding of sharpshooters out of Iowa that was a very, very close second for me.

Would not go wrong with either one. On average I expect Fred's line will range bigger in open country than the average Sharpshooter line dog. Both are hard core hunting dog genetics, most with excellent conformation to boot.

Should be a nice litter. Been happy with my dog sired by Dez.
