We can’t thank Chad, his wife and the staff at Willow Creek Kennels enough. We picked up our pup and a 3 hour drive home and he never whined, whimpered or barked. He adjusted so well to our home. He is a beautiful pup and we keep hearing from so many people how calm he is. Chad does his research and it shows. I was leaning for a pup from a different litter and Chad recommended a pup from his first choice for us. He said a pup from this litter would be a better fit for us and how right he was. Our pup picks up on training quickly. He has bonded to all our family members especially our daughter. Chief loves her. Can’t wait to get our pup in the field. People keep asking us were did we get such a calm and beautiful pup. Willow Creek has it going.Thanks again to everyone at Willow Creek Kennels

Our general requirements for a dog breed were: A) Loving companion B) Water dog C) Minimal Shedding D) Athletic E) Great hunter. We were absolutely blessed with The Duchess Willow (Willow) on May 2015 from the Sire: Honker and the Dam: Shelby. She has exceeded all expectations. We selected Willow Creek Kennels and the litter because we live on the Lake and required a water dog. We were happy to hear that even though water skills are not graded by AKC and the breed, Willow Creek Kennels does recognize it as a key trait and guided us to Honker. We were a bit nervous, but Willow absolutely loves swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking. Willow is on the small size at 47 pounds, but she is completely ripped. Most people who see her are amazed at her beauty and her temperament. Anyone who hunts with her is blown away with her athleticism, nose, and discipline. While hunting pheasants, she points birds that other dogs miss and hunts harder than every other dog. When she was 8 months she already started retrieving birds. We can’t begin to express how much Willow has added to our family and we thank everyone at Willow Creek Kennel for you help and love of GSP’s.

I am sending this as a quick thank you and praise filled review for Chad and everyone at Willow Creek. Otis (Adele and Charlie) came to use the day after Christmas. He instantly became a part of the family. He is smart, quick to pick up on commands and not scared to adventure. Otis got introduced to gun fire during a skeet shoot at about 4 months and responded extremely well. I have no doubt that in a hunting scenario he will perform exceptionally well. We truly love him and can’t thank Chad and team enough for sending Otis to Alabama for us.

When we set out for our new pup we were looking for a pup that would not only point but have the drive to retrieve. We hunt upland game and shed hunt. We are totally blown away with the versatility and the learning ability of our pup Oakley. At 14 weeks old she ran two “fun run” NASHDA courses, because she is not old enough for the actual hunt test. She completed both in under the 15min time limit and found/retrieved all 6 sheds on both courses. We just own and run GSP’s, for the most part it’s a retrieving breed sport. Other’s were also blown away at how she did. She is also a machine on birds, which came natural to her. I have trained my own dogs and have been around a lot of dogs and you can just tell when a breeder has a breeding program right and good dogs. Willow Creek has it. If you are hesitating getting a pup from Willow Creek, stop and get the pup. A huge kicker, they are awesome people, very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you again Willow Creek!

I would like to thank Willow Creek Kennels for our amazing GSP Luna. She is all we could ask for in a family dog, especially with our newborn. Luna is an avid hunter and she was a good nose and a strong point. When we saw Honker we had a feeling we were getting a good dog from that litter but didn’t know we were going to get so lucky. WCK truly knows what they are doing and they did a great job in guiding us towards the type of dog that may best fit our home and hunting environment. Luna is 1 1/2 yo now and is in full stride, amazing watching her work! When I decide to get another GSP, Willow Creek Kennels is hands down the place I will be contacting!
