Home of the Versatile Champion - VC Stonyridge Nika
Ava is doing a great in the field and becoming one of our top breeding griffs. She is out of our VC Stonyridge Nika's AA litter that was sired by Stonyridge Magnum. She has good length and reach in the field and moves through the woods with ease. She covers ground effortlessly and can run all day! She is a nice size at 47lbs and light on her feet. She has a great, very dense, harsh coat with the best belly coverage we have seen. Her coat is virtually maintenance free and very protective.
Ava loves to naturally retrieve off land and water and is following in her mothers foot steps. She is very cooperative, has a solid point and gets along well with other dogs. Ava also has a full sib brother that is a stud dog for Riden High Kennels in Oregon. Ava tested in NA with a 107 prize 2 and is doing great in the field!
Ava had our JJ litter in 2020. She also did a very nice litter of 11 pups in 2021 and 6 pups in 2022.
For 2024 Ava was bred again to DeJac's Piece of My Heart Itasca-Trooper
This will be a repeat breeding from the last 2 years. We really like the great coats and drive in these pups. She has been checked by ultrasound and has a mid sized litter due Jan 30 2024.

Lady is one of our younger breeding griffs. She has been the crowd favorite ever since she was born. Her eye contact and alert demeanor is amazing. She has a great point and search and will beat many older dogs for the retrieve. She has a darker, deep chestnut coat, like her dam Willow, that is scored dense, medium harsh. She also has nice furnishings with the "griff look". Lady has been doing great in the field and tested with 3 of her littermates for an average Prize 1-111 NA breeder award score. Lady is smaller in type at 44lbs and 21", and very quick in the field. She is a little spitfire and fun to work with yet will "snuggle in" and be very affectionate!
Lady was bred to De jac's Piece of my Heart Itasca.
If all goes well, Lady will have her pups Feb 13, 2024. This is also a repeat breeding of her 2022 and 2023 litters. Her pups will be darker and may have more furnishings.

Willow is our ambassador griff. She greets you with eye contact and an irresistible look that demands affection. Willow is smaller in type, at 21" at the shoulder and 45 lbs, but she makes up for her size in attitude! She is relentless!! Her drive and desire is fun to watch. She is quick in the field and intense, yet at home very affectionate and loves attention.
Willow crashes water, and retrieves naturally. She has good bone and hip for a smaller dog, and is very light on her feet. Her coat has a great deep chestnut look that is dense, medium harsh. Willow learns very fast and is fun to train. She NA tested at 4 1/2 months with a 108 prize 2. She is doing great in the field and has a solid natural point. We think she has the potential to be our next VC following her full sib VC Stonyridge Otis! She has whelped 6 litters for us, and her pups are testing very well. Willow has many full sibs that are doing well for other kennels. She is a daughter of Stonyridge High Point and In 2021 her LL-litter tested with four pups averaging Prize 1-111. We kept "Lovin' Lady" for ourselves and have also brought in "Locked and Loaded" for stud. In 2022 we kept "Ramblin' Rose" for a future dam. In 2023 Willow was bred to DeJac's Piece of My Heart Itasca-Trooper. These pups are doing great!
