We have some additional information to share about ‘ole Griz — Enjoy Reading!


Grizzly has really had an excellent career for him and his off-spring! So far through 2019, his offspring have done a great job in the APLA and AKC master level tests. The following dogs and their owners have titled this year:

Griz is a record-setting dog in the APLA by becoming the first 4X GMPR at less than 2 years of age. At 23 months of age he broke the previous record of his half brother by over 6 months. Griz also went 5/5 in AKC senior 1 year of age!

I also ran Griz in his and my first shoot to retrieve event and finished a very respectable third (it would have been 2nd if I shot better). This finish was over 28 traditional pointing breed dogs in the pointing division. The event was the Pheasants Forever National Quail Championship in Kansas City and put on by Bird Hunters United. We plan to run more of these events next year!

Griz is one of those special dogs that has a huge motor in the field, but is very controllable and wants nothing more than to be a team player. Griz has an unbelievable demeanor for a dog with his power. He is truly a gentleman that is extremely intelligent & confident, but doesn’t have a dominate bone in his body. He is an excellent marking dog and is rock solid steady at the line. Griz has been a natural pointing dog from day 1 and point’s way off birds. He is extremely reliable and is allowed to run big in the CRP fields of South Dakota or comes in close for the heavy cover sloughs of Iowa.

Griz will be siring litters for Hunters Point Kennel through out the years.

Griz is available for stud on a very limited basis to approved bitches and is located in Marshalltown, IA.

Griz’s Photo Gallery

Griz has been photographed many times over the years.  I am fairly certain we could publish a book of his pics.  In fact, that sounds like a great idea.  I think I will have to do that some day.  Until then, enjoy these.
