About Greypointe Kennel and our History

Greypointe Kennel was founded by Doug and Grace Meyer who have owned and handled winning field trial dogs since its establishment in Tennessee in 1985. Relocation to Texas for 11 years in 1989 and now in Kansas since 2001 has allowed Doug to sample a variety of field trial venues and some of the nation’s best bird hunting areas over the years. Doug is a virtual encyclopedia of bird hunting lore for most species of North American game birds including various species of quail, pheasants, sharptails and prairie chickens, ruff and blue grouse, woodcock and Hungarian Partridge.

Frequently reporting and judging major field trials across the country has further exposed Doug to performances and field situations that only a lifetime of experience could duplicate. Greypointe pointers are hunted during the season to not only keep them sharp but to assure that they are excellent wild bird dogs. Annual trips north to Montana, North Dakota and/or Iowa start the bird season early; frequent hunts for prairie chickens, pheasant and quail in Kansas and winter trips to Texas assure maximum numbers of wild bird contacts for our dogs. No dog remains at Greypointe that doesn’t meet the standard of being a proven bird finder as well as a class animal as validated by field trial placements. Located in northeast Kansas, some 25 miles west of Kansas City, we have ample land and birds to develop and polish our field trial and hunting dogs in order to compete at the championship level.

   

Wrong Side O’Memphis

Greypointe Kennel was founded in Tennessee where I began my over 20 year association with class English Pointers. In Tennessee, I utilized proven horseback All-Age bloodlines primarily such as the Builder’s Addition family (Addition’s Go Boy, Builder’s Free Boy) and Rebel bloodlines thru the producing female, Nell’s Rambling On. I won with the likes of Chief’s River Guardian (direct son of Miller’s Chief out of a daughter of Guard Rail) and Builder’s Rebel Jazzman (Out of a son of Builder’s Free Boy and an Addition’s Go Boy female). With the expansion of walking field trial organizations and my long time association with the National Bird Hunters Futurity, I began to identify and monitor qualities in these competitive animals and introduce these bloodlines into the kennel. In January 1992, I acquired Wrong Side O’Memphis, a precocious pointer female who placed first at the 1993 NBHA Futurity Puppy Classic and a finalist at the 1994 Futurity along with later shooting dogs wins. She was out of Jerry Kilgore’s shooting dog winner and producer Reed’s Rushing Jake and a direct daughter of Elhew Strike. I bred Memphis to the 1992 NBHA Futurity winner and multiple Champion Therapy to produce a notable litter with every dog placing in field trials. This began the line that continues to this day including RU National Champion Greypointe Comanchero, CH Greypointe Cannonero, 2006 AFTCA National Walking Shooting Dog Champion Greypointe Espada, Derby Classic and shooting dog winner Greypointe Fandango and field trial winning and super wild bird dog, Greypointe Flamenco along with the next generation in development
