ABOUT CANADIAN RIVER GUNDOGS

Kyle and Rachael Locke are the owners of Canadian River Gundogs.  We specialize in breeding field bred Wirehaired Pointing Griffon’s. We are located in central Oklahoma and the South Canadian River runs alongside the town of Noble where we reside. 

We prefer a griff that has a dense, harsh, and flat-lying coat, a medium build as well as a somewhat “leggy” appearance. It is our experience that a griff of this type will be able to more effectively upland hunt day in and day out.  We prefer hard-driving dogs that will adjust their range according to the terrain and conditions.  We not only upland hunt with our dogs but we also are serious about waterfowling.  We select dogs that love water and are enthusiastic to retrieve. 

At Canadian River Gundogs we selectively breed to produce truly versatile hunting dogs, since we hunt a variety of game.  We register and test our dogs through NAVHDA (North American Versatile Hunting Dogs of America).  We train our own dogs and believe in a positive approach to training.  We put our dogs in the best position to find their own natural abilities.  We find having our dogs on birds early and often accelerates this process.

We are in love with our Moose.  Kyle was amazing keeping me up to date with photos and videos.  Our puppy is doing fantastic already pointing and listens well.  We can’t wait to see him grow and flourish.  Hopefully my chickens will live through it.  Hahaha.

I picked up a pup from Kyle a couple of months ago. Kyle was very responsive with any questions I had, and kept me up to date on the status of my pup. The pup is absolutely gorgeous and his drive to hunt birds is already insane. He is eager to please, listens extremely well, and is a loving pup. I couldn’t have asked for a better pup. I look forward to hunting behind my Griffon for years to come.

I picked up Remy (F/K/A Nacho) at 5 months old and Kyle has always answered my calls when I had questions and truly cares about  his dogs and their owners.  Top notch person!  Remy just received his Prize 1 in an NA test.  I am suprised how instinctively he points, tracks, and retrieves.  He is truly a great dog.

history

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was developed sometime around 1870 by a Dutch breeder named Eduard Korthals. His goal was to breed a dog that would hunt in all kinds of terrain and weather, point upland game birds, and serve as an excellent water retriever. Korthals refined his breed while working in Germany and France.  There is still a debate whether the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a Dutch or a French breed.  Korthals formed the Griffon Club of America in 1916. The American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association is the AKC parent club for the WPG. The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon was recognized by the AKC in 1887.

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is a versatile hunting dog and generally considered a foot hunting dog.  They weigh between 50-70 pounds with a height that ranges from 22-24 inches for males and 20-22 inches for females.  They are well known for their harsh coat and lavish mustache and eyebrows.  The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon is bred to point, retrieve, and track.  They are used for hunting a wide variety of game, such as quail, pheasant, woodcock, ruffed grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, and ducks.  They are considered friendly and active dogs which makes them a perfect dog for many families. They are eager to please and quick to learn.
