Early Socialization

We all want a confident balanced companion. You hold the keys in your hand, as early socialization is key to this outcome. Let’s discuss your puppies upbringing and where you should go from here.

So You Are Last Pick

So, your last pick… The words of actual owners. I promise you that the puppy you get is meant for you! Here are my own thoughts on last pick. I am the pickiest person I know when it comes to dogs. Coming from the perspective of a dog breeder, my criteria are different from yours. […]

Puppy Health Guarantee / Receipt

Sales Agreement For a pet puppy born on [insert date], registerable with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and NAVDA, with the registered name to be determined by the buyer. You are welcome to use the kennel name “OUTBACK” if you choose. A pet PUPPY is defined here as a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppy that is […]

The Golden List

Cost and How to Get on the Golden List: If you have researched the breed and potential breeders and have decided that you truly want an “Outback” bred Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppy and are willing to wait for availability, you can join the Golden Waitlist. Most people are offered puppies within the first 6 months. […]

The Picking Process

Here at Idaho Outback, I value long-time interest rather than the order of deposit. Regardless of when a deposit is received, I prioritize every litter based on the original email date. This means that if you showed interest in the breed and contacted me about my kennel three years ago, I will refer to that […]

They, as a whole, benefit from testosterone, which I believe makes them have slightly bigger movements and perhaps a little more independence. They may also be less reactive to new stimuli. An example I commonly use is […]

How About 2?

There is a significant difference between adding a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon or two to your pack and having five resident Griffons. Nonetheless, adding one to your pack seems to be an overall wonderful experience. I love when folks add a puppy to their pack before their old dog becomes cranky and tired. There are two […]

How Do I Pick?

Physical Attributes of M&Ms and Puppies: I have seen many litters of Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppies. Even with an experienced eye, walking into a room with 12 Griffon puppies is overwhelming. First off, they all look alike… well, not exactly, but overall they do. Hopefully, they have identifying collars. It’s like picking out a special […]

Griffon Puppy 101

Food Your puppy has been fed Diamond Puppy, which was purchased from our local outlet. I prefer the smaller kibble size at this age. By 3 months of age, I will transition the Griffon puppies to a large breed puppy food; my current choice is Diamond. If I notice inconsistent stool, my first choice is […]
