Table Rock Kennels is a family affair! It’s operated by Jacob, Keeta and Jaeda(she’s 4) McCracken. pheasant_3We live in Boise, Idaho, where upland bird hunting is second to none. Over 65% of the state is public land giving us more than enough space to train and hunt. There is great diversity here as we can hunt pheasant, chukar, quail and huns in the same day. We also have amazing waterfowl. This type of hunting requires a versatile hunting dog, that’s why we specialize in the German Shorthaired Pointer.

Bettering the breed is our #1 goal, these are our standards:
OFA Eyes pass
OFA Heart Pass
OFA Hips Excellent or Good
Ran in AKC and or NAVHDA Hunt Tests
Both parents will have at least two hunting seasons under their belts. Dogs that are wild bird hunters is key to who we are and what we look for when breeding.

We focus on improving our dogs’ weaknesses and strengthening their strengths over putting puppies on the ground. Testing with AKC and NAVHDA helps us perfect our breeding program. We cater to the foot hunter who wants a versatile hunting and family companion. In order to ensure competence we breed field and competition tested shorthairs. Besides testing, another way we produce exceptional gun dogs is through targeting pedigrees where recent ancestors have proven hunting abilities.
