name is Steve Herman, I have been involved with Sporting dogs since 1980, in the
1990's I owned a number of German Wirehaired Pointers and , thereafter was
authorized by the AKC to judge the Breed. In the course of judging, I judged a
puppy. I liked him so much, I inquired about getting involved with owning and
showing him. Fortuitously for him, he was soon to be co-owned by someone who
could do a great deal for him. That was Truman.
I did much to
support his show career, including awarding him his second Best of Breed at the
GWP National Speciality. I also spoke to Angie, occasionally, about another
Wirehair for myself.
Now, my Wife, Laura
and I are the proud owner of a Truman son. His name is Ranger and we love him
dearly. We are most taken by his great temperament and agree if he does nothing
more than lay around our home and make us smile, the rest of his life, he will
have satisfied us, completely.

"He is Everything and
is terrific in every way. He is beautiful, smart and most importantly healthy
and fun loving. His temperament is exactly what we had hoped for. His trainer
says that he has the making of a good therapy dog for visits to Primary
Children's Hospital as he matures and his training continues. We could not be
happier with him. He is everything and more that we had hoped for.

Owning a Reece Kennel puppy has exceeded all my expectations of the breed! I
have owned Wirehairs longer than my breeder is of age, therefore, I can honestly
say that it is an honor to own a dog from Reece Kennels! The relationship of
breeder and buyer doesn't end after the sale but instead is the beginning of a
wonderful friendship. Thank you Reece Kennels!

you are looking for a versatile dog that can go from the field to the show
ring to back in the house with the family, definitely consider Reece Kennels
for your next dog!
absolutely love our puppy out of Truman and Pepper! Our goals when
purchasing were to find a pup that would be a great hunting companion,
perform in the show ring, and above all be a great member in our family.
Though she is still a pup, our little female has proven that she will be all
these things and more! The minute she came home, she pointed a chicken in
our yard and continues to demonstrate such great natural raw talent in
pointing and retrieving. Her personality in the show ring is mesmerizing.
She draws attention from everyone around just by how she presents herself.
She is with one of our family members daily whether it be out and about on
the farm, field, in the house or on the road with our work, she is always
well mannered and out going. This pup knows who she is and shows great
confidence in a reserved manner. She catches on quickly with just basic
manners and we have not had any issues in the house with her. She sleeps in
the house and hangs out with us and caught on quickly to potty training. She
loves all of our members including the kids and our other dogs and has fit
Working with Reece
Kennels and Angie Johnson has been great! Angie is always there to help and
answer any questions we have had. She is a great resource and genuinely
wants what is best for our pup and family. We truly appreciate her
assistance and also that she is not pushy nor intrusive. Angie is super easy
to work with and is a great representative of the GWP breed and a
responsible breeder. She will make sure to match you with the right puppy so
you are not disappointed!

"My Breeder of
had the pleasure of meeting Angie 10
years ago when I purchased my first GWP, Jolee. Since that time, Angie has not
only been my breeder of choice for subsequent GWP's, but she also has become a
wonderful friend and mentor.
Angie goes well above above and beyond
any breeder I know when it comes to the health and welfare of her dogs owned and
bred. From health to temperament, to coat and conformation, to working ability,
anyone wanting a quality puppy will not be disappointed.
When my parents got their GWP puppy from
Angie & Mike it was my first experience with a GWP. I immediately fell in love,
the whole family did. Not only is he gorgeous but his personality, loyalty, and
hunting drive were key influences to me wanting a GWP, and specifically one from
Reece Kennels. Now that I have Miss Dixie I couldn't be happier. She is only 18
weeks and has already amazed me with her intelligence, energy and personality. I
adore how much she loves to swim and her natural pointing ability. She is a
great companion and I look forward to all the exciting activities her and I will
participate in. Thank you for everything Angie and Mike.

Stevie into our Wewatta
Wires family from Reece Kennels has been an incredible experience. Our
little girl is a great representation of the breed and exactly what breeders
should be striving to produce. Angie has gone out of her way to help educate me
on absolutely everything I have asked. She has taught me about bloodlines,
conformation, field ability - the list is really to long to write. Having a
breeder that cares about her dogs even after they have gone to their new homes
is an integral part of raising a successful wirehair. I would recommend Reece
Kennels for anyone looking for a perfect fur family member.
has been well over a year ago that my husband and I got our first GWP. Angie and
I work for the same company in different divisions. This is how we met. We
already were showing dogs. We got to know each other better at work and at dog
Angie mentioned that she was going
to breed Dana. We joked that she would bring the entire litter into work and put
them in my cube for the day. She was sure at the end of the day I would write a
check for the lot. I am glad to say this never came to pass as I probably would
have written a check!
As time passed and it came closer
to time for the birth, I was definitely interested in a puppy. Unfortunately,
there were a number of people ahead of me. Luckily, there were enough puppies to
go around. We visited and played with all the puppies. In our position you try
not to pick a favorite, but there was a puppy with two spots, affectionately
know as Two-spot and now Katie.
We came to get a puppy with
absolutely no pressure. If you like the puppy great, if it is just not what you
are looking for that is fine also. Well we did get Two-spot and the fates would
Dealing with Mike and Angie is a
dream. They are honest, friendly, knowledgeable, kind, and ready to help you

extensive research, my husband and I decided that a German Wirehaired Pointer
would be the best dog for us. Once we decided on the breed, it was important to
us to locate a responsible breeder. We found Angie and Mike Johnson and it was
very easy to tell they cared about the breed. Both are extremely knowledgeable
and have been very helpful throughout this whole process. Once we picked Oskar
out and took him home it did not take us very long to tell that he is a very
well-bred dog. We are so happy with him, we are already looking to add another
wirehair to your family.
Oskar has beautiful markings and a
great tight and wiry coat that requires little maintenance. He started pointing
and hunting things in the yard within a few weeks. His championship will come
easy because he is a very balanced animal; we are going to start his agility
training soon. Oskar does everything we ask of him and we have found him to be

we approach the pups one year birthday, I wanted to send our gratitude for Jase.
I don't know that my words can fully express how much joy he brings in our
lives, but I will try!
When we applied to be pet parents for
one of your pups we had concerns that all of our requests for a dog wouldn't be
conveyed well. But you certainly proved us wrong!
Everything we asked for - color,
conformation, weight, drive for hunt, friendliness towards everyone, willing to
please, was meant... he has it all! Ourselves and our friends and family are
more than impressed. Jase has become a large part of our family, at hunting camp
every weekend, sometimes going to work with us and he has even participated in a
couple extended family vacations.
Your active participation in everything
your puppy offspring does is incredible! We certainly think of you as an
extended family members and are proud to have one of your pups.

is a Superstar..."
When I decided to get a third GWP, I
spent many months investigating the plethora of breeders all over the country.
One day, by happenchance, I opened your web site and immediately was drawn to
the obvious spirit, passion and love you have for your dogs.
I found myself returning to Reece Kennels
almost every other day for weeks on end. Until, finally, I picked up the phone
and called you.
My life, since getting WyNott, has
blossomed more that I thought imaginable. She is a dream come true. A beautiful,
well-adjusted, loving, calm, playful and silly little dog that captivates our
restaurant's guests on a nightly basis. She is fearless and inquisitive and
willing to attempt any feat big or small. She is awesome with children, of any
age, and gets along with every dog she encounters. She's a sweet little sister
to my older two "W's", Wyeth and Watson. And, she is truly my companion.
Quite frankly, she is a superstar.
And, I owe her being "all that" to you and
what you stand for and what you strive to be as top-notch, extraordinary breeder
of German Wirehaired Pointers. I also have to thank you for being so helpful to
me over the past three months - I have texted you, emailed you, called you, and
facebook you with questions about this or that and you have always given me
great advice and encouragement. Simply, you've gone out of your way to help us
both - WyNott and me - reach our potential.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that I
write this to you, Angie. I will, forever, be indebted to you for my WyNott. My
Examples of the Breed..."
family has adopted two dogs from Reece Kennels. The first, a male born in 2008
that we named Heisman and the second, a female born in 2012 that we named Emmy.
Both dogs are wonderful. They are beautiful examples of their breed. Angie is an
amazing breeder. She has kept in contact with our family, is concerned about the
health and welfare of her dogs and is always willing to help an owner if they
have questions or concerns. We would highly recommend Angie and Reece Kennels to
anyone interested in adopting an adorable, goofy, energetic, loving and healthy
German Wirehaired Pointer puppy. They are simply the best dogs!

"I Knew We
Couldn't Go Wrong..."
have known Angie Johnson the owner of Reece Kennels for over 30 years and when
we came to her looking for a new family pet she did everything she could
to make sure we got the right puppy for our family. This being our first GWP she
educated us on all the requirements that it takes to own a dog of this breed. We
poured through the education portion of ReeceKennels.com website, visited her
dogs and puppies several times and she continually drilled us on the commitment
it takes to own a sporting breed especially one that requires so much exercise
and time. We decided to take the plunge and jumped in feet first. While owning a
puppy is a lot of work we are so much in love with our Scooby. What a great
family pet... but most importantly we know that we have the full support of our
breeder and one of my best friends Angie Johnson. I knew we couldn't go wrong.
Joy and I decided we wanted a dog we spent hours researching breeds to find the
one perfect for us. We wanted a dog that was very active, playful, social,
attractive, and one that would form a close bond with us. Based on our research
we determined that a German Wirehaired Pointer would be the best fit, but we had
trouble finding GWP breeders until we stumbled across Angie. Angie confirmed
what we already knew and we decided that we would wait for one of Angie's
puppies. In fact we waited nearly 9 months for one of her puppies and it was
well worth the wait. We absolutely love our boy Bear and consider him a great
part of the family. He is extremely smart and is everything we wanted in a
companion. He is a great hiking partner and we are looking forward to hunting
him eventually. Thanks so much Angie, and we look forward to adding another fur
baby from you in the future.
with Reece Kennels has been nothing short of perfect! They are involved
with their dogs, improving the breed and helping their puppy buyers to find that
perfect puppy for them and to help give them the tools to excel at what is most
meaningful to the relationship between puppy and you the new owner. They
are honest and supportive and the glue that holds all of us together like a
The puppy that I received from Reece Kennels has more than exceeded my
expectations in every way. She is beautiful, brilliant and birdy. What more
could you want in a faithful companion?
Having owned a couple of GWP's in the past and not having a successful
experience, I was apprehensive to get another one however once I saw a photo of
my puppy, I couldn't imagine life without her. This venture back into the breed
has been more than I could have ever imagined. This is in large part to the
planning of this breeding, the start in life that she was given by her breeders
and the continued support we are given as together my puppy and I explore any
and every venue we choose to do because she is that good! I am eternally
grateful for this special little girl who has transformed me.
love working with Angie Johnson of Reece Kennels. As a prospective owner, I
signed a puppy application and provided information to Angie about my ability to
care for one of her puppies. She was very thorough and I really appreciated
that. Once I was approved and the puppies were born, Angie provided me with
weekly photos and videos of the puppies. On July 2012, I brought home a
beautiful little girl that I named Gracie. She is now a year and half old. She
is training in Obedience, Rally and Agility with the AKC. She is perfectly
healthy, lively and full of enthusiasm for everything we do together. I'm
biased, but I also think Gracie is truly beautiful. And her temperament is
magnificent. At a very young age, Gracie has already earned an obedience and
rally title and is excelling in agility by leaps and bounds. We hope to be
competing in agility in the next few months.
journey, Angie has always been interested in Gracie's progress. I like that we
have kept in touch and that she has put me in contact with other GWP owners so
that we can share our experiences. Its like our own little GWP family/group. I
know that Reece Kennels cares about their dogs throughout their lifetime. That
sense of care and dedication tells me that I have one special GWP.
Thank you to
Angie and all at Reece Kennels. I love my Gracie.
"Restored My Faith..."
is our third GWP, and she is proving to be a real crackerjack.
fearless, curious, attentive, very social, and most importantly very tractable;
in some of those respects outside my general experience with the breed. From
the first step into our house it seemed she knew she belonged, acted as such,
and bonded very quickly with our 7 year old GWP Splash. Her well adjusted
nature I attributed to Reece Kennels attentions pre-whelping, or possibly sound
breeding stock, most probably a winning combination of both.
My experience with
Angie, as a breeder, restored my faith. Pearl is ALL we hoped for, and as a
former multi dog (Brittany's and Labs) bird hunter, I can say with some
authority her demonstrated qualities indicate clearly she will make a
great gun dog.
"Your Line is at the
Thanks for everything you have done with
helping Jamie and myself. I have never been in love with a dog like I am with
Sawyer. He has the personality and drive to hunt that I absolutely love. Your
line is at the top of my list and we can't thank you enough.
If you successfully make it through the
screening process, and are selected to receive a puppy from Reece Kennels, you
should consider yourself extremely blessed. We are so thankful to have our Cali.
She's our 5th GWP and by far the brightest and most athletic yet. Literally
coming from top bloodlines in the country, she has been a joy to have in our
lives. Moreover, making friend's with Angie and Mike has been such a huge bonus.
They are two exceptional people and run a world class operation.
"He is Extremely
are so happy with Maverick. He has assimilated into our family like he was born
here. He was so well socialized with people and dogs, that I have not had one
moment of timidness from him, and he is extremely smart, and that is coming from
an owner with 2 Aussies who are pretty smart also!! He is absolutely beautiful!!
We love him to death!!
Thanks also for all your informative
emails about puppy info you sent. Very helpful even though I have had dogs for
Kennels bred a spectacular dog in every way in our 5-year-old male, Dodge. He
is such a handsome GWP. He has all the great traits that this breed should
possess, and personality plus. He is a real family dog and very social with
other people and other dogs as well. The reality is he has won the hearts of
our non-dog loving friends! (How can there be any such person, right?) If you

taken us on adventures we never thought possible. With Rumor being close to

these wonderful dogs. Thanks so much for all you do for us.

was our first GWP. Not knowing much about the breed, Angie has been great in
educating us and encouraging us with all our agility, tracking and other
adventures. "Grandma Angie" as we affectionately call her is always asking how
we did at a trial or what we are up to next. She is always a text, email or
phone call away, always willing to take the time to explain or discuss.
was time for another puppy we went back to Angie and got Kitt. In both instances
I told Angie what I was looking for in a performance pup and she has picked the
perfect pups for us! When you get a Reece puppy, you get a "grandma" for life!
"Process was First
I would like to thank Angie for providing
such a great puppy to my family. The entire process was first class. Not only
was she available to answer any question I had before we picked up our puppy,
but she's been willing to follow up in the weeks since. Our puppy adjusted
immediately to our farm and I have to believe that comes from Angie being such a
great breeder and caring for the dogs extremely well. Our little guy loves water
already and I can't wait to see how he continues to grow and take me on
adventures with him.
"Pure Energy & Pure
Our GWP, Ritzy, joined our family last
fall. She is pure energy and pure joy! Angie Johnson, from Reece Kennels, gave
us lots of information and suggestions for raising a GWP. Angie was very
professional and a pleasure to work with. Ritzy 'took' to training and is
well-mannered but mischievous. She accompanies us in all that we do-- hiking,
camping, riding to the beach and working on the farm. She is my running buddy!
Our lives would not be the same without her! We are proud to be part of
Reece Kennels family.
Bonnie and John Josey
Dealing with Reece Kennels was a very easy
and positive experience. Every question or concern we had during the process was
answered in a friendly and professional manner. We especially loved all the
photos, videos and updates we received on our puppy during the wait. We had our
puppy transported by air and again a very easy and smooth process. We couldn't be
happier with our little Remington and at 9 weeks of he's already pointing birds
and random items in the yard. Remi is very confident and outgoing puppy, he is
not scared of anything and has been go go go since he arrived at our home, a
sure sign of fantastic breeding! Thank you so much for this excellent puppy!
"Sharp as a Tack..."
We got our GWP...aka Birdy from Reece
Kennels Flyer and Marley litter and she is doing great! She is settling into the
family, more like running it.... she is quite rotten and lovable all at the same
time. She has many names, lady-burglar because every morning she raids the
closets and grabs whatever she can grab. Lady-bug because she loves to snuggle
at night. She's been in the field and did well. She's a great running buddy and
loves to run beside the bike. Most of all she loves baths and a blow dry! She
DEMANDS attention and loves to be the center of the attention. She is a hoot,
sharp as a tack and happy all the time. When her eyes are open in the morning
she is ready to GO, GO, GO. We are very happy with our little German.
