Choosing a stud requires an immense amount of time and research.  A great stud dog is a true rarity, even from a line of great dogs. At Bone Point Kennels, choosing a stud has nothing to do with who owns the dog or where the dog is located.  Often times, if we feel the best stud for a female is across the US then we will ship her to be bred.  Breeding to the best dog usually isn't the most convenient route.  Because of our strict criteria for choosing a stud, we usually breed to outside dogs.  If we feel that we have a male great enough to breed, then we will use him.  Feel free to contact us for stud recommendations or to get more info about a particular dog. 

Studs are only available to approved bitches that have something to offer the breed.  Bitches must have OFA or PennHIP certification of being HD free, be certified as being free of autoimmune hypothyroidism through OFA, be free of physical faults, be a proven hunting dog from proven bloodlines and be a good representative of the breed.

Max is one of the most talented dogs that we have produced. His desire for game on land and water is unparalleled. Max combines the best of his very talented parents, Luke (Lager v den drei Teufeln) and Allie (McNally's Super Allie). He is a turbo-charged field dog with breathtaking style and intensity, and he is a water-pounding duck demon in the duck blind. Max was hammering the water to retrieve ducks in 10F icy weather when he was 8 months old.

Max ran the VHDF advanced hunting aptitude evaluation (AHAE) last May at the very young age of 15 months old. He had hunted ducks the winter before and had only seen one live duck in training before the test. As a testament to Max's innate water desire, his AHAE duck search ended at 20 minutes with Max over 200 yards away buried in a cattail marsh. He received maximum scores of  '10' in Field Search, Nose, Blind Water Entry and Search Behind the Duck. He received an impressive '11' in overall Desire, which includes an extra point for showing a remarkable level of desire throughout the test. Max also earned a maximum '4' in the NAVHDA utility duck search at 19 months of age. He performed prize I level work in all areas of the utility test except Steadiness in the Field, which is impressive for such a young age. At 28 months old Max ran in his second utility test and scored a maximum 204/I. At a very early age on land and water, Max continues to prove that he just no quit in him.

Similar to his dam, Allie, and littermate Harley, Max actually has a very calm disposition and is a gentleman around the house.

Max is owned and trained by Brett Wood of Logan, Utah.

Gunner is owned and trained by Lance McWethy of Moore, Oklahoma. Gunner was Lance's first hunting dog and they were able to successfully complete a prize I in the NAVHDA natural ability test, and a prize I in the NAVHDA utility test at the tender age of 2 years old, which is no small feat. Typical of most Bone Point wirehairs, Lance credits Gunner's incredible desire for his success, with the duck search being his strongest area when training for the utility test. Gunner is also a very fast, wide-ranging field dog that covers a lot of ground quickly and efficiently. Most importantly, Gunner excels as Lance's hunting partner and as a family companion.

Jett is a very nice young male that we have high expectations for in our breeding program. He is owned by Larry Bennett in La Grande, OR. We have hunted over Jett a number times the past few years and have also trained with him. I hunted over Jett for the first time in 2013 when he was 7 months old, which happened to be one of our worst bird years on record. This was a year when most hunters weren't finding any birds over veteran dogs, yet Jett was producing coveys of chukars and huns for the gun every time out. He was just a natural born bird dog that was always on birds and he knew how to handle them. I hunted over Jett again in 2014 when he was 1-1/2 years old and it was the same story - Jett producing more bird than the older dogs. One of the only other dogs I have ever seen to be this talented of a bird dog at such an early age was Jett's dam, Frida. Obviously, it is a family trait.

Jett's owner primarily hunts upland with him, but Jett enjoys retrieving the occasional duck. I have seen enough of Jett that I know has all of the tools to make an incredible waterfowl dog if given the opportunity. I have done duck search training work with Jett and his water drive is outstanding, as is his natural duck search. Larry often takes Jett with him fishing on the boat and Jett will jump in and take off swimming several hundred yards away, staying in the water for an hour, simply because he loves swimming and looking for ducks. He is a high drive dog on land and water.

Jett is a medium sized dog that is very athletic. He has excellent conformation and has a medium length black coat. His nose is superb and his bird finding and bird handling abilities are second to none. He has excellent style and intensity on point. Jett has a nice friendly temperament. Jett scored a 110/I in the NAVHDA natural ability test and 154 in the VHDF Advanced Hunting Aptitude test where he scored maximum 10s in Field Search, Pointing, Search Behind the Duck, Nose, and Steadiness & Manners. He is a very nice all-around versatile hunting dog on land and water, and before and after the shot. You will simply not find a better natural wild bird dog than Jett. His bird finding and handling skills are elite.

Cecil is owned by Ben Oakleaf of Nampa, Idaho. Ben grew up helping his dad, Ron Oakleaf, train many talented wirehairs in NAVHDA. Cecil has not disappointed. From as early as 4-5 months old Cecil was finding and handling wild chukars and huns. Again, he was just one of those natural bird dogs that does it all, right out of the box. Every experienced dog handler that has spent time with Cecil comments on the dog's outstanding nose. He also possesses incredible desire, on land and water.

Ben tested Cecil in the VHDF Advanced Hunting Aptitude test at 21 months were he scored a very strong 171 points with maximum 10s in Field Search, Steadiness, Nose, Blind Water Entry, Desire, and Search Behind the Duck. Cecil is a very talented young male that is strong in all areas, with an exceptional nose and natural bird finding and handling abilities.
