We have been breeding GSP’s
since 1998, with our original lines coming from USA Partridge Run’s kennels
who have good quality show and field trial Chamion bloodlines.
We have managed to maintain the
good hunting instinct, temperament and conformation that we originally started
with, and take pride in the puppies that we produce.

In selecting a GSP, you need to be aware that they need a lot of exercise, spacious living environment, stimulation and human contact. They do not settle well in a small garden, or when they are left in the yard and ignored.
