Breeding Program

At Brookeside Pudelpointers, we actively hunt, train, and test our own dogs.  This first-hand experience and knowledge, allows us to impartially assess our dog’s performance for a potential breeding. 

Hunt Testing

All of our dogs are hunt tested in the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) testing system.  We have handled dogs at all levels of the NAVHDA testing system, which includes Natural Ability, Utility, and Invitational.  These hunt tests remove any bias in evaluating a dog’s performance in the field and water. 


A dog’s health, temperament, hunting capabilities, and trainability are linked to its genetics.  We ensure that all of our dogs are free of genetic related problems including hip dysplasia, eye disorders, temperament disorders, or other genetic related problems.  All of our breeding’s are analyzed with the Breedmate software to evaluate the genetic makeup of a prospective breeding. We strive to breed versatile hunting dogs that have a well-balanced temperament with a friendly personality and excel in the field, marsh, and home.
