Whiskeytown Sporting Dogs has been involved with Wirehaired Pointing Griffons since 2007. Our interest in the breed began when searching for the perfect versatile hunting dog; one that worked as both an upland pointer and an excellent retriever as well. In addition to hunting with our dogs, we compete in the show ring as well and have won multiple national events in AKC conformation. We won Best of Breed at Westminster Kennel Club in 2012, 2013 and 2014. We are AKC Breeders of Merit. We have been awarded a North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association Natural Ability Breeder Award five times since 2012 and have qualified 2 litters in 2015 already. Along with co-breeders Meagan Withrow, Carroll Kemp (Seaview) and Jill Reifschnieder (Aces) we work to produce beautiful, healthy hunting dogs with great temperament.
We breed only the best to produce the best. All of our dogs are top winning show dogs, active hunters with advanced field titles and loving members of our family.
Coming from only the finest of bloodlines, we breed our dogs to reproduce the champions that they are. With careful attention paid to the heritage of our dogs, we ensure the finest qualities are bred into our Griffons. Our top priority is temperament and health, but we always strive to produce excellent gun dogs that are also beautiful and conformationally correct.
