""Honey, find me one of them pointing dogs with a beard. I'm tired of losing birds!" That was what Joe said back in 2016 while hunting grouse up in Northern MN. So began our adventure with German Wirehaired Pointers (GWPs)." ~ Erin Yanish
Joe and Erin have always had dogs but mostly herding breeds. Erin grew up showing dogs in 4-H obedience and agility. She also participated in Herding Trials. Joe and Erin enjoy working with their own dogs and find positive trainers and mentors to help them.
Their first GWP came from Heather Griswold with Rose Point Kennels. Mick turned out to be a wonderful gun dog that anyone can take out hunting no matter your pace or level, Mick brings the skill. He is so thorough when quartering a field that you won't miss a bird.
Their next GWP came from Angie Johnson with Reece Kennels. Chex has been the perfect addition to the family. When you meet her you can't help but fall in love! Besides her flashy movement and personality she loves hunting and water. She has proven to be another great dog in the field and water as she is methodical when working a field and has amazing tracking skills!
Their third GWP came out of Florida from Rick & Dee Donohue with Double D German Wirehaired Pointers. Ripley has a commanding presence in the ring and field. The nose on this boy can find a bird well off which comes in super handy during the late hunting season in MN when birds are quick to flush if you get too close or are buried in foliage or snow.
All three breeders that they have purchased from are great mentors and have been instrumental in getting them on the right track when it comes to doing the best for their dogs and the breed. They are all members of local GWP clubs and the National club (GWPCA).
The Yanishes are active members in organizations like the Twin Cities German Wirehaired Pointer Club (TCGWPC), the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA), the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) & MN NAVHDA.
Their dogs are more than just dogs, they are family that live in the house with them. Their dogs are with them as much as possible and go with wherever dogs are welcome. It is common to see their dogs watching outdoor sporting events with them while cheering on family members, fleet and other stores that are dog friendly, a variety of outdoor community and school events, on their farm doing chores, on the job, vacations and many other places.
Their dog family consists of the 3 GWPs listed above as well as 2 altered herding dogs and an altered livestock guardian dog as they live on an active beef and horse farm.
