About Us

We owe a lot of what we do and who we are to our good friends, Tari Nestrud, Diana Nordrum and Liz & Greg Dixon.

In 1991, Tari introduced us to our first experience in wirehairs, a rescue named Barron. We fell in love with the breed and decided to purchase our own wirehair.


Awards & Accomplishments

In the summer of 1992 we purchased our first wirehair from Diana Nordrum. The pup was affectionately named "Boxcar", due to his size. He was a huge, rolly polly puppy and it was love at first sight. We later named him “Eli”. He was one of the best hunting dogs and all around family dogs we have ever owned!

Tari was Kelly’s teacher at the Twin Cities school of pet grooming where she learned how to groom and properly care for the coat of the Wirehair.

From there we met Liz & Greg.

Liz assisted Kelly in the show ring helping her to obtain our fist show championship for Eli “Ch Liebenwaids heartbreaker SH”


Greg helped Don train Eli, graciously sharing his knowledge of the breed & his training tips, helping Don to become the trainer he is today.

We became so enthralled with the breed, their capabilities and the ability to have dual purpose for hunting and show that Don quit his job & went into training full time.

Don’s goal as a trainer/breeder is to give you the same feeling we had with our first hunting dog, to have you feel that the dog he trains for you is the best dog you’ve ever owned.

From there we have expanded to include training for all hunting breeds, obedience for all breeds, boarding,  and breeding  of German Wirehaired Pointers.
Dogs are our passion, “this is all we do & we do it well!”
