Idaho Hunting Dogs is a quality, family owned, kennel offering German Shorthaired Pointer pups including 5 generation pedigree
documentation.  Our puppies are available on a first-come, first reserved basis.  We also maintain a waiting list as most pups are
sold before they are born.  We start taking pictures when they are newborns and try to do live streaming video of the puppies
and their momma until they go outside.  All of our German Shorthaired Pointer dogs have had OFA and CERF completed.  At Idaho
Hunting Dogs, we pride ourselves on having a very conscientious breeding program.  Our females are only permitted to have 1
litter per calendar year.  Our dogs and puppies are raised in a family environment as part of our family!!  All of our Idaho Hunting
Dogs puppies are born and raised in our home to get them used to a home's general sights, sounds and chaos plus of course, lots of
hugs and kisses.  We take them outside as appropriate to run them around the yard when they are ready.  These are definitely
family dogs for the home that "turn on" in the field for an incredible hunting partner; however, we encourage some form of puppy
social /obedience class for new puppies and their families.  Our goal is to breed conformationally correct GSP's that are
manageable, stylish, and even tempered with a strong desire to hunt, point and retrieve.    

Thank you,

If you DO spend 15 minutes a day training your pup,
you will get the dog you deserve :)

Take them everywhere and expose them to people, dogs, cats,
loud noises (carefully) so they will be the best they can be!!
