I picked up my first Griffon in April 2012 after talking to Katy and reading many of the Newtown/Griffonpoint reviews on this site. I did not want to gamble on a breeder that did not have highly satisfied clients. I have little experience bird hunting and have never owned a bird dog so my selection of the breeder and trainer were my highest priority. Katy was very helpful and tireless over the next 5 months by eagerly guiding me step-by-step, with the end goal of having a successful hunting dog.
Katy recommended Brad Higgins (higginsgundogs.com) for training. After spending the past 6 weeks training with Brad and Katy I now have an 8 month Griffon that is ready to hunt…without ever having worn an e-collar. Brad’s training methods are completely unconventional meaning all training is rewards based, not discipline based. Bottom line this is a great Breeder & Trainer combination and I am 110% satisfied!
