About our Kennel

Tarmigan English Pointers

Dennis and Karen Picchi have been active showing, hunting and breeding dogs since 1982.

Breeder/owners

We have been active in many areas of dog events since 1982. We believe that the Pointer breed is extremely versatile and enjoys a wide variety of activities.

Puppies Occasionally

We breed for quality, not quantity. All litters are raised in our home and are well socialized from an early age. Puppies are started on game birds at 6 weeks of age. Normally we only breed a litter every 1-2 years so each puppy can receive maximum attention. All breeding stock is OFA certified for health prior to breeding.
