Point of Honor is a small family owned and operated kennel in Gladwin, Michigan. We have raised, trained, and hunted various breeds of pointing dogs since 1969. The Wirehaired Vizslas and the German Wirehaired Pointers have been a wonderful addition to our kennels and have proven to be a great asset. We have gotten some very impressive hunting dogs over the years and we wish to share our pride and joy with you!

Back from a great day of hunting!
Hunting is what we love most and we are dedicated to producing some of the best dogs the sport has to offer. Our dogs are the first Wirehaired Vizslas to be accepted and registered to the AKC Foundation Stock, so all of our dogs are AKC registered. We were awarded NAVHDA's prestigious "Breeder's Award" by having four pups from the same litter pass their Natural Ability hunt test with two prize I's, a prize II and a prize III, with a grand total of 403 points. We are the first Wirehaired Vizsla breeders to receive this award!
Our years of experience allows us to offer you the opportunity to book a hunt or arrange for training for your dog. Our breeding programs also allow us to offer puppies from time to time. Check out our "Dogs for Sale" page for availability!
"Do not hesitate to get a puppy from Matt!! I got a female WHV from him about a month ago and she is great. She's incredibly friendly, lovable, and a source of humor. She's young still, but she is starting to show her natural ability, she points, loves the water, and rarely barks. Also incredibly SMART, she was housetrained in two weeks, she knows about a dozen separate commands. These dogs are awesome, if you want a dog that everyone will love get a WHV from Matt. But if you don't have the time to exercise them, maybe get a different dog."

"I hunted over Bill Morgan's Dog which was bought from Matt at Point of Honor Kennels. The dog's name is Point of Honor Zarek, kennel name Ricky. We hunted for 3 hours for wood cock, Ricky pointed over 40 birds. We killed our limit and Ricky found and retrieved to the hand all of them. Several were laying knee deep water. By the way, we were hunting state land in Gladwin County. Ricky never gets out of range, and is by far the best bird dog I have ever hunted over."

"Matt and Julie have been great to work with. They have beautiful dogs and have answered any question that I have had. They have gone out of their way to make sure that I was and still am a satisified pup owner. I would recommend the breed and the breeder to anyone who wants a dog that can work in the field and at home with the family. They are terrific. You will not be disappointed."

"You Won't Be Disappointed in a Puppy From Point of Honor Kennels!"
"Our Ally is a year and a half now. She just completed her 1st season on grouse and pheasants. She is a quick learner and performed just as Matt said she would. In the house she is calm and affectionate and wonderful with kids. Getting our Wirehaired Vizsla from Matt was a wonderful decision. He was very helpful and communicated well throughout the whole process making it easy and enjoyable. He has answered training guestions promptly and we still trade funny pictures and e-mails."
