Breeder Listing

The GWPCA Breeder/Kennel Directory is a form of classified advertising where members of the GWPCA can pay a fee for an annual listing in the directory. The Breeder/Kennel Directory is for GWPCA members who have acknowledged the GWPCA Code of Ethics and is published as a service to club members and interested members of the public who wish to investigate owning a German Wirehaired Pointer. If you are a GWPCA member and would like to be included on the breeder listing complete the Breeder Application Form. The breeder directory runs January to January but listings are added and updated throughout the year.

*Please note that appearance on this breeder listing does not constitute a recommendation by the GWPCA or its members. The GWPCA does not endorse or recommend any advertiser and/or their breeding practices. The GWPCA is not responsible for dogs bought or sold through this listing and in no way guarantees the quality of the animals purchased through it. The GWPCA strongly recommends puppy buyers screen the breeder from whom they are considering purchasing a puppy/dog.
The GWPCA recommends that all breeding dogs complete recommended health screenings to obtain a CHIC number through OFA. For GWPs, the recommended health tests are: hips, elbows, eyes, cardiac (heart), thyroid, and optional vWD. To see these recommendations and further information please visit the German Wirehaired Pointer page of CHIC, to look up public results please visit OFA.
