Below are our breeding eligible dogs.  Dogs are elgible for breeding after their Penn Hip and 1st year cardiac screen is completed.  Both of these screens must meet acceptable breeding standards.  In some cases our dogs are eligible for first generation offspring normal health screen.  This is an application process in which parentage must be proven through DNA.  First generation offspring result are posted and available through OFA.   

A CHIC certificate is awarded when the following health screens are completed hip, cardiac, eye (cone degeneration and eye exam), and elbow.  These are the primary health screens recommended by the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America.  CHIC screening is expensive and a lot of work.  It takes several years to complete all the screens.   We continue to work on completing the remaining screens required for a CHIC certificate.  All screens are posted publicaly on OFA's website.  In addition, there maybe direct relatives who also have health screens posted.   

There are VERY few breeders who complete CHIC health screens.  The CHIC number assigned reflects the number of GSP dogs whom completed their CHIC health screens.

Our goal this year is to complete CHIC certificates for Agnes, Nuggy, and Baker.

Lastly, our females have four litters and then are retired.  Retired means they are spayed.
