Hunting Dog Breeds Raised: German Shorthaired Pointer

Dale and Linda acquired their first German Shorthair as a Christmas present and personal hunting dog in December of 1994. Dale trained Lindas Pretty Heidi behind subdivisions in Hermitage, Tennessee. She was such a good birddog that after her second season, they decided she was worthy of producing off-spring. While searching for a suitable mate, they met Brenda Roe and Snips Ticked Off (Rip). The results of the breeding were outstanding and produced both field and show champions.

They entered the competitive arena with one of those off-spring, Heidis Olympiad Greta, in 1997. Greta retired due to health issues as a 3XNSTRA Champion with 69 points. In 2002 Linda began entering NSTRA field trials with another dog from that same litter and finished in first place at her first trial. She competed at the local, regional, and national levels with her dog Heidis Here-N-There (Droopy). Droopy retired from competition with 17 points.

In 2005, Dale retired from his remodeling business and Linda retired from teaching. They moved to Wheeler, Texas and established Dalin Kennels for breeding, training, and boarding birddogs. They also provided accommodations and guide services for quail, turkey, deer, and wild hog hunts.

In 2013 Dale and Linda moved their kennel to Shannon, Mississippi in order to be closer to family. Dalin Kennels continues to provide training and boarding.

I sent my German Wirehaired Pointer, Fisher to Dale and Linda in December 2014, and I couldn't have made a better decision. In just a few short months, they had Fisher pointing, backing, and retrieving flawlessly. Not only are they great trainers, but you could not ask for a better couple to work with your dog. They take great pride in their work, and do everything they can to provide quality training in a timely manor. I would highly recommend using Dalin Kennels to anyone looking for quality bird dog training.
