The AYTEE Kennel is 40 years old this year 2017! We breed working German Shorthaired Pointers and our homebred dogs bring together some of the very best Show Lines with our own top Working Dogs. Run by Lucie Hustler in Norfolk, our aim is to breed true Dual Purpose Dogs.
We have genuine working dogs. They pick up at local shoots every week during the season. They have soft mouths, they swim well, they have great game finding ability and importantly they are carefully bred from showing as well as working lines. Our family have owned and bred, shown, worked and field trialled German Shorthaired Pointers since the 70’s and we started our small kennel in 1980 (“AYTEE”). We are KC Accredited Breeders and have been awarded a Breeders Diploma from the Kennel Club. We usually have 3 GSP bitches, breeding one litter every few years. In showing, our GSP’s have taken us to Crufts and in the field they have won many awards. Currently we have two Field Trial Champions and the Kennel Club 2015 HPR Champion.
The first AYTEE Field Trial Winner was in 1991 with AYTEE CHARITY winning 9 FT Awards and owners have also enjoyed success in other areas too, with AYTEE HARVEST HARLEQUIN from the ‘H’ litter of 2009, getting to the Agility Finals at Olympia 2015 and the ABC Finals at Crufts 2017.
The Dual Purpose Dog is always our goal. When we breed a litter we always choose a sire that is a leading Champion Show dog, but it must also be proven in the shooting field. Puppies are bred for temperament and intelligence as well as beauty and stamina as we are always aiming for them to be very trainable. Our GSP’s live in the Norfolk countryside surrounded by fields and woods. They are kept with horses, cattle, chickens, cats, etc
