As a young boy growing up in South Texas (next to the Mexican Border) my father had Coon Dogs which he did not feed, and none of us were allowed to feed them, they had to fin for themselves,( back then our closes neighbor was 2 miles away) so they would be gone for days at a time searching for food, some times they would bring a freshly killed Rabbit and place it on the back porch for us, our next evening meal, you guessed it "Rabbit" and it taste just like Chicken!!
We moved to Ontario California in 1953 where I really missed the hunting and the dogs, after high school I spent 6 years the Army National Guard boy was that a different kind of hunting, I made the rank of Sergeant E-5 before leaving. I got married and was working as a Machinist, when I was asked to go hunting with some friends at work, they had German Shorthaired Pointers and hunted Pheasant, Quail I wes invited to go on a hunt with them, I went and it was almost as good as hunting in Texas, I was amazed at how well the dogs worked on game, I had to have one. My first GSP was a dog I bought for $75.00 because the breeders thought the dog would never make a Show dog as they showed their dogs as well as hunted them, I was told that he was too big to show but would hunt good, ok. lets make a long story short, He was a AKC champion at 16 months of age was field trained by me and either won or placed in every field event I entered him in, His name was CH. Vaugndacers KoKo.
In 1971 I attended Vet school at North west College in Pomona California to learn to be a vet assistant, after graduating I had enough education to take care of my own dogs such as docking Tails and du-claw's, minor surgery's and first aid.
I learned to handle dogs in the Show ring from a profesinol Handler, and worked with Field trial 'ers for some 5 years. in 1972 I met Bodo Winterhault who was a German Versatile dog trainer who showed us field trial ers how we should be training our versatile hunting dogs such as Tracking, Pointing, and Water work on Ducks, this was the true test for hunting dogs that was developed in Germany many years ago when developing the breed, I was very impressed and joined NAVHDA. In 1973 I left Southern California and moved to Corvallis Oregon I purchased 4 acres of land and built a Custom home and a small bording Kennel, I tested my Pups with NAVHDA and if they could pas the Naturial Ability test then they would be tested in the AKC Shows to prove their Conformation then at the age of 2 years The Hips are OFA certified and the Eyes are tested with CERF for defects.
I was determined to produce a quality GSHP thru testing both Show (AKC) and Field (NAVHDA) as of today I have some 98 AKC Show Champions, of which 85% of them were NAVHDA Field tested and Prized as Breeding stock prior to going into the show ring, I servied as President of the German Shorthaired Pointer club of Oregon, and I was President of the Columbia Chapter of NAVHDA for more than 18 years. By Field testing with NAVHDA and Conformation testing with the AKC show ring I was able to produce a quality GSHP that not only looked great but could out hunt some of the best dogs around this was obtained by breeding the Picks of litters that excelled in all of their field test and the show ring and were OFA (Hips certified to be free from defects) and the Eyes were CERF Certified (Eyes were found not to have Cataracts or any other genetic defect) this way as a breeder I could feel good knowing that when I sells a pup it has the best chance to perform better than is expected from their new owner.
Today 10-12-06 I enjoy getting letters and many emails telling me how much people are happy with the dog they got from me.
