Welcome to Ironwire GWP!

Quality German Wirehaired Pointers

Our goal is to produce healthy dogs that are great hunters but also have good temperament and conformation. All of
our dogs are tested to guarantee their hips and thyroid are healthy.  Our dogs are extremely versatile and intelligent
and can easily go from a skilled point in the field to a graceful prance in the show ring. We love practicing agility,
obedience and conformation with our wires – these dogs truly can do it all.

Please contact us to learn more or to arrange a visit to meet us and our dogs!
About Us

Ironwire German Wirehaired Pointers is located just southeast of Denver in Parker, Colorado where the mountains meet the plains. We chose the name IronWire
because it describes how tough our dogs are but also pays homage to Idawire, the kennel that inspired our love for these dogs. The west offers a wide variety of
activities that we love to share with our wirehairs including hunting (upland and waterfowl), back country skiing, hiking, swimming and mountain biking. It is essential
that our dogs fit into our active outdoor lifestyle but equally important that they are well-socialized and capable of being true companions.

Our dogs are extremely versatile and intelligent and can easily go from a skilled point in the field to a graceful prance in the show ring.  We love practicing agility,
obedience and conformation with our wires – these dogs truly can do it all.

We became interested in German Wirehaired Pointers for their natural hunting abilities and extremely sweet nature.  Adam wanted a dog that could hunt hard all day
with him but that could also be a loving companion.  After extensive research on multiple hunting breeds, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the fuzzy faced GWP!  
Once we decided on the breed, we spent considerable time choosing our breeder so that we could have the best GWP for our family.

All of our dogs are tested to guarantee their hips, elbows, eyes, and thyroid are healthy.  Our goal is to produce healthy dogs that are great hunters but also have
good temperament and conformation.
Enter Fritz

Shortly after the loss of our beloved labrador retriever, we got our first GWP who was initially intended to
be a family pet and hunting dog.  We had no idea that Fritz would turn out to be much more! When he
was 6 months old we took him to a local dog show to visit our breeder who was teaching us how to
maintain his coat.  When the breeder saw him she insisted that he should be a show dog.  Fritz won
Best of Breed in the very first show he was entered in and from there easily finished his championship.

The focus during Fritz’s first year and a half was attaining his  show championship but we also started
focusing on hunt training. Adam has trained Fritz for the field by himself and with the help of Ben Garcia
of Hideaway Kennels.  We knew we had something special the first day Adam hunted Fritz and he was
the only dog finding birds. Fritz is a passionate hunter and an exemplary show dog but also has a very
sweet and whimsical personality which makes him the perfect all-around dog. He earned his AKC
Master Hunter in 2013.  Fritz continues to impress us year after year in the field and as our best friend.
Through the Generations

As the years pass and we continue to breed we are continually impressed with the dogs we are producing.  Each litter has held up to our high standards
and many people and families have new friends and hunting buddies.  Ironwire dogs have achieved many awards in the show ring and field but the most
rewarding has been all of the accolades we receive from people who own dogs produced by us.
