Where Great Dogs and Great People Unite

At Top Shelf Kennles, we specialize in German Wirehair Pointers (GWP).  We aspire to find each family the perfect dog for their lifestyle.  We enjoy getting to know each family and picking out the perfect dog for them.  Our dogs are perfect for hunting in all conditions and can cuddle on the couch at night.   We have many testimonials about our dogs and we consider each dog to be "Top Shelf."

Top Shelf Kennels has currently produced (18) Natural Ability, (3) Utility, and (2) Versatile Champion NAVHDA Breeder Award litters.  Moreover, Top Shelf Kennels has produced (10) NAVHDA Versatile Champions.

Top Shelf Kennels is a proud member and supporter of the following organizations:   NAVHDA, RRVHAVHDA, GWA, and GWPCA




Top Shelf Kennels is located a couple miles southwest of Horace, ND. I purchased my very first Wirehair back in 1989 and have never looked back. Top Shelf Kennels has produced over 20 GWP litters and received multiple NAVHDA Natural Ability, Utility, and Invitational Breeder Awards. I pride myself on producing the very highest QUALITY puppies vs Quantity. All puppies carry an 18-month Health Guarantee. In 20 litters, I've yet to have a puppy come back to me. I encourage all my puppy buyers to participate in a sanctioned NAVHDA Natural Ability test and give all of the support I possibly can to make sure both you and your puppy are successful.
Feel free to give me a call, I always love "talking dogs" with new friends. Thanks for your interest in Top Shelf Kennels. I really appreciate it.
