I truly enjoy bringing out the versatility in my GWPs. Early exposure and becoming a team are so important. I personally hunt and handle my dogs. I have handled my dogs in the field (hunt tests and field trials), conformation, agility, rally, obedience, NAVHDA tests and, Wirehaired Pointing Club of America Versatility tests. I therefore breed for the qualities of an all around companion and hunting dog. My interests are in the complete package of this versatile breed - form following function!
I have worked with animals, large and small, all my life and earned my B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science from the University of California - Davis (UCD). In addition to attending UCD, I also had a wonderful career in animal health and welfare at UCD, before retiring after 36 years.
I have been a member of the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of Northern California (GWPCNC) and German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA) since the mid 1980's. I served as past Treasurer and Secretary of the GWPCNC for over 20 years as well as serving as event secretary during many of those years. I also served on the GWPCA Versatility Committee.
In concert with the GWPCA Code of Ethics, I believe in health testing of the parents.
About Dixon Ridge GWPs
When it was time to breed Jetta, Mildred was very ill (and subsequently passed away) and her Weidenhugel kennel name was being used by Dr. Cindy Heiller, so it was time for my litters to be identified by my own kennel name. Thank you Mildred for the wonderful dogs that have come my way.
Weidenhugel Eclipse v Lampo ~ "Maddie" ~ liver roan, no furnishings, but a wonderful temperament
