Established in 1959, the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Idaho (GSPCI) is dedicated to the betterment of this sporting breed and the preservation of its natural abilities and standards. The GSPCI promotes ethical breeding and responsible ownership and training, through education, competitive events, and the sport of upland game bird hunting.
The National Shoot To Retrieve Association (NSTRA) was founded by a group of dedicated bird hunters looking for a way to extend the fun they enjoyed with their bird dogs after their season ended. Field Trials, under hunting conditions, were the answer. Field Trials provide an extended the season, a sportsmanlike environment and competition with others who enjoy bird dogs.
If you are a bird hunter, you know that a hunt isn’t really a hunt unless you have the companionship and services of a well-trained hunting dog. Whether you call them bird dogs, gundogs, or hunting dogs, they all do our bidding and they are our friends. They may be pointers, setters, versatiles, spaniels or retrievers—they all do the same thing: They make the bird hunt successful and add to the overall enjoyment. Many bird hunters say they enjoy the dog work even more than the bagging of the bird. This website is for you. We have the most complete listing of kennels that raise fine gun dogs on the internet.
