    Wanting a new GSP pup.

    My wife and kids are really hassling me to find a new pup.
    I lost my last and best dog in 2011 and could not bring myself to replace him.

    Just reading a post Gapped axe made in another thread some of his words hit home with me.

    "Don't get the same breed as you will always compare."

    Pretty much the reason I have not been able to consider a new pup till now.

    I will get another GSP because I am ready to do so and I accept my last dog is irreplaceable and I look forward to working and learning with a new one.
    I am not interested in any other breed. I know what I want just not where to start.
    So, I am after a good breeder with proven gundog stock and hoping I can add a pup to my family in the next 6 or so months.

    I would like to be able to choose my own pup in person if possible and will travel anywhere in NZ to do so.
    I have searched the GSP breeders page and there is not much on there at the moment.
    Any recommendations will be appreciated.
    I have never personally used a recognized breeder before.
    My last dog was probably a fluke as he was an engagement gift and only the father was a gun dog.

    Some fella in the Manawatu imported two dogs from Germany not long ago. That would be where I would start

    I have a mate who trials GSP's in the gun dog circles and is starting a breeding program in the future, I'll give him a call.

    Gail Blankley would be a good start. She is pretty involved with the GSPs. Shes in Auckland but will know where to start with litters available in NZ. Give me a call when youre back and I can put you in touch.

    I'm onto my 3rd Black Lab - now 11 weeks old Mack is getting thoroughly "mothered" by my wife she calls him "Mackie MooMoo" He is a hunting dog!
    He now has a penance for tummy rubs nearly goes to sleep.
    So all in all the bonding is going well as are the 1st training steps. I have pulled my old training book for retrievers from the book case blown the dust off and refreshed the memory

    I would have brought it up last time we had a chat. Its only in the few days that the cook is getting serious about finding a breeder.
    I get back next week so will give you a buzz.
    If I seem proactive she will get off my case😆

    Not sure on dogs straight out of Germany either. Their english wouldn't be that good I imgine😆

    To be fair it is a genuine concern for me having my kids spoil the dog.
    Especially my daughter.
    Not worried about the cook as she is farm reared herself and knows dogs.
    If I was not working overseas for extended periods it wouldn't be a concern.

    I can see you out and about in public with your dog now Bonecrusher.

    The dog only reacting/working to Mackie Moo Moo will get you some funny looks if you have to raise your voice a tad😆

    Cheers mate. I have plenty of time to pick and choose.
    I will not rush into anything. As long as I am looking and giving updates I should get left alone at home.😆

    Glen Morris of BackRidgeBiv fame is getting a new short haired German wire haired Pointer to replace his dog Flint who passed away. Contact him on Facebook.
