We've temporarily shut down our hourly lessons but continue to take dogs in for board and train. We have two clients who are unable to fly in with their dogs for April due to travel restrictions. This leaves a couple of openings if you have interest.
Let me know. Stay safe out there.

Breeding, boarding and training Wirehaired Pointing Griffons
Hun Hill Kennel is one of the oldest and most recognized “HUNTING” Wirehaired Pointing Griffon kennels in the United States. Our dogs are well known for possessing uncommon prey drive. We hunt approximately 150 days a year on wild birds from Montana to Arizona. All this HUNTING allows us to thoroughly evaluate our potential breeding dogs to determine if they have what it takes to be exceptional.
Frank Puccio has trained and competed with pointing dogs since he was a teenager. Frank has trained dogs professionally since 1986. His reputation is known for having an extremely light touch in his methods of training.
Our unique training grounds are teaming with Wild Valley Quail and Ringneck Pheasants. The terrain is varied, ranging in light flat cover to hilly and brush choked stream bottoms.
Our kennels are brand new, heated, air conditioned are are always squeaky clean.
Having owned my fair share of gun dogs in the past, I can confidently say that Hun Hill Kennels is the best I've ever experienced. Part of my income comes from guiding wing shooting so making an investment in a good dog is a no-brainer--good dogs make safe hunts and happy clients. I personally found Frank by way of the bloodline that he has--I owned a male WPG from the same bloodline. My now three year old female has been everything that was promised and more--a perfect score in her NAVHDA Natural Ability test, a downright phenomenal drive and biddability that I didn't know existed and "off switch" outside of the field. She is incredible around kids and toddlers, mellow in general while in doors and an extraordinary field dog in both upland and waterfowl. If you're looking for a great WPG both in and out of the field, Frank is the man.
Hun Hill Kennel is the place you're looking if you want to hunt your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. We narrowed our search rapidly from six down to one after meeting Frank and Lisa, seeing their dogs, and realizing they take the hunting of this breed seriously, and that breeding is all about producing great hunting dogs that are also great family companions.
After 30 years of having dogs, this was our first hunting breed, but our pup scored well in his NAVHDA Natural Ability test (108), and has also shown his ability in the field while pointing quail and chukar, and just this week retrieving his first couple of ducks. As others have stated here, Frank and Lisa are also great resources, and have made themselves available to answer any and all of our questions prior to and after getting our pup. Frank's knowledge of both bird hunting and dog training have been invaluable, not only in providing assistance to those of us lucky enough to have one of his pups, but in giving him the experience necessary to produce top quality dogs for the field and home.
