AKC breeder of merit.jpeg

The American Kennel Club honors responsible breeders who have gone above and beyond on health issues, temperament, and genetic screening, as well as to the individual care and placement of puppies in responsible homes. That’s why AKC established the Breeder of Merit Program: To give breeders a way to prove their dedication to preserving breed characteristics and producing healthy, well-socialized puppies. AKC considers Breeders of Merit to be the most conscientious and most committed breeders.

Cal has been a perfect addition to our family!  He immediately bonded with our older lab and gets along well with other dogs. He is a very fast learner and understands many commands. We are frequently approached with questions about Cal and always say we highly recommend Ice and Fire Kennels. We can't imagine life without Cal!.

As lifelong sporting dog owners and avid dog lovers, we are continually astonished by Rosie.  She brings delight to all three generations of our family on a daily basis.  We can't imagine a world without her.

NAVHDA’s Breeder Awards were created by the leaders of the organization in an effort to foster and reward selective breeding. In addition to recognizing progeny that attain consistent test scores, NAVHDA strongly promotes DNA testing of all dogs along with hip certification, which is incorporated into the advanced Breeder Award levels. The stringent criteria for the various awards and the list of Breeder Award recipients provide prospective puppy buyers in-depth insights when identifying reputable breeders.

Kira is my constant companion.  She has taught me to live in the present and that every moment can be an adventure.  She is always at my side.

Mia Bella is the best dog I have ever owned. She is a great hunter with blood lines that suggest she could be an awesome show dog like her sisters. She keeps me healthy because she needs a long walk everyday, plays fetch for as long as you can throw the ball, but is happiest when she snuggles up against me on the sofa. She lives up to her name — she is My Beauty.

Zoe is beyond our wildest dreams.  The perfect snuggles and she loves living out on the ranch. Always up for a new adventure.  Hiking, swimming, exploring.  But always at our side.  We can't thank you enough.

"Ice and Fire Kennels is a prime example of a breeder’s dedication to the German Shorthaired Pointer Dog. David and his team show how much they truly care about the wellbeing of their dogs and preserving the breed standard. They take every step to ensure their dogs and litters are healthy, family socialized and in tune with their instincts. The dogs produced by Ice and Fire Kennels are some of the most competent animals, always willing and able to excel in any discipline they encounter. Ice and Fire not only gave me my best friend, but a top-of-the-line German Shorthair, who consistently turns heads wherever he goes." - Ice and Fire Kennels Houston There’s No Problem Here

We can't thank Ice and Fire Kennels enough for allowing Dany to be part of our growing family.  She is a beautiful and hard working hunting companion and a huge piece of our family unit.
