Woodrings GSP Kennels - Our Dogs Make Our Point!

Greetings from WOODRINGS GSP KENNELS - home of quality gun dogs. Our favorite dog is the German Shorthair Pointer, but really, we like all bird dogs and we love upland bird hunting - whether we’re hunting Pheasant, Quail, Chukar, or the explosive and elusive Ruffed Grouse or the gentleman timberdoodle (Woodcock).

This site was created for several reasons, mostly so that people can become familiar with Woodrings GSP Kennels, but also to serve as a meeting place for people who share our passion for excellent bird dogs and great hunting. We would also like it to be a place where people can come for training advice, look at photos, and find interesting links related to upland hunting and gear, find a new hunting partner (dog or human) and various other reasons. Our hope is to especially cater to upland bird hunters in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. This site is a continual work in progress - feel free to look around and visit us often.

If you look around our web site you will notice that it advertises our dogs as “Quality Gun Dogs”, “Intelligent, Hard Hunting, Family Friendly”, “Our dogs make our POINT!”, and so on. Our kennel strives to live up to our stated goals of producing excellent bird dogs and sometimes I get e-mails from customers that just blow me away. Case in point - I just received an e-mail and a photo from Nick - a fellow who purchased one of the pups from my 2014 litter. The pups name is Khalee and she just turned 13 weeks old. Nick took Khalee out on opening day and here is what he wrote to me in the e-mail, words are verbatim, Today went well. She got us 4 pheasants and a bunny. Hunted her for about 3 hours. Not too bad for a 13 week old puppy. She pointed every bird we shot today.” Nick had a lot to do with this pups success - his time invested in helping her be her best - working her on birds, etc. But still, here is a pup I am proud to say came from my program. Thanks to Nick for the e-mail and a job well done - you are well on your way to many more years of great opening days and all the ones in between!

Woodrings   GSP’S Get  the  Point!

Many thanks to Nathan Berry for providing this Christmas pic. Nathan & his brother Austin purchased two “brothers” from our 2014 litter. What a beautiful pair of dogs!!

Just an attempt at some watercolor artwork - it’s easy to be inspired by all the things a person can see during the season.

I know I am dating myself with this comment - but when I was younger and serving in the military, the movie TOP GUN had just hit theaters and was very popular. “Maverick” was the handle for the lead character and the name was fitting because he really was a “maverick” - cutting edge, risky, top of his class, with keen predator instinct in air to air combat.

The picture to the left is a pup out of our 2015 litter - his name is Maverick and is owned by Jake (who sent me the pic). His father is Woodrings Man of the Haus (Hoss). Jake tells me Maverick has completed obedience school which is great!  Every investment of time and attention in a pup makes for a great hunting companion and a top dog.

I am not sure what motivated Jake to name his pup Maverick and probably has nothing to do with TOP GUN; however, I am confident as Maverick continues to grow and mature he will be a dog that is cutting edge, is bold enough to take intelligent risks, is top of the class with keen predator instincts and enjoys the challenge of game that loves to take flight.
