AKC German Shorthaired Pointers

In 1980 Keystone Gun Dogs began with a pet GSP.  A short time later we started training, hunting and showing ourdogs.  We currently mostly train with NAVHDA, test in the AKC Hunt tests and show in the breed ring. Our pups dogs are active in AKC Hunt tests, Agility, Rally, Search & Rescue, the show ring, and Obedience Competition as well as testing our dogs for Therapy Dogs International, Inc. (TDI) and the Canine Good Citizen Test.  Our dogs have been featured at the Meadowlands Sportsmen's Expo and on the TV Shows Pennsylvania Outdoor Life and Animal Planet's Too Cute!

A notable accomplishment includes training our dog 'Tracker'  to achieve a perfect score in attaining his Junior Hunter title, Companion Dog title with a high score of 92, and received the Canine Good Citizenship award. Tracker was rated 18th in the country for Top Obedience German Shorthaired Pointers all before the age of two.  We have many of our dogs and pups with AKC and NAVHDA titles. Please contact us to inquire about any upcoming litters.

We belong to the Eastern German Shorthaired Pointer Club, Schuylkill Valley German Shorthaired Pointer Club, The Sleepy Hollow German Shorthaired Pointer Club, The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America,  NAVHDA National, Rock Tavern NY, Hudson Valley, NY, and the Hickory Run chapters of NAVHDA. Joining your local NAVHDA chapter is highly recommended!  You will meet a great group of people while training your new pup!  NAVHDA is open to Versatile hunting dogs.  A list of recognized breeds is found in the test rule book on page 5.  

We are also active with German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue.  Please take a moment to visit our 'Favorite Links' page for access to links such as GSP Rescue, NAVHDA, EGSPC and places to shop!  Also; there are many good books listed on the 'Recommended Books' page. Look for the book by Joan Tabor. On page 145 in that book is a photo of my son when he was a toddler with our very first GSP, Roxie. The photo was taken in 1980.  Please navigate through this website as you will find many interesting facts, photos and general information that we would like to share with you.
