Hey Tracy,

Just thought id drop off a little bit about Samuel and how he’s doing. I bought him back in July of 2011, i believe Megashot was his mom. The sad part is i almost did not buy him because i wanted an darker liver roan pup, but when i came and visited the litter he was the one who came to me first and that was all i needed to see. He is doing great and could not ask for an better dog. He does have quite the personality but that is what this breed is all about. I have never been stopped by so many people out in public that have said he is the handsomest dog that hey have ever seen, ever fellow pointer owners. He has many friends around the neighborhood who actually come over and ring the door bell just to ask if Sam can come out and play!

Thanks again so much,

Josh

Hi Tracy,

Just wanted to say thank you again for the puppy. I named her Meika and she is doing great! Everyday I am amazed at how smart she is and how easy she is to train. It was a breeze to housebreak her. She is a ton of fun and everybody who meets her falls in love. She is very outgoing and loves meeting new people and exploring new places. I am looking forward to watching her develop and continuing her training. I have decided that I want to do some agility training, I think she will love it.

Thanks again,

Matthew H.

I purchased our dog oliver from look away kennels approximately 3 years ago. It is the dog that is in the picture with your daughter on your home page. Just wanted to let you know he's doing wonderfully. Couldn't ask for a better dog. He is also outstanding at hunting. We're use him for upland and waterfowl. I included some pictures below... I know when picked him up the dog your daughter stated she was pretty attached to him. I thought she might want to know he was doing well.

Also, we have a friend who is interested in purchasing a GSP. Do you have any upcoming litters planned?

Thanks Joe!

Hey Tracy,
Just wanted to let you know our boy Louie is doing great here. I was working him in the backyard with a pheasant wing yesterday and he was doing great. He held this point for quite some time. Basic commands are going well, too.

Thought you might get a kick out of a few pics.

Mr. Divelbiss,

Thank you for taking the time to talk about your pups with me tonight. We are super excited to have a dog back in our family, and I'm looking forward to working with him on his, and my, hunting skills.

You seem to have a passion for the dogs, which is very encouraging.

After such a long winter, it is difficult to wish this summer away, but we are definitely looking forward to August!

Thanks again,

Nick R.

Hi Tracy,

I purchased one of your puppies from your July 2011 litters, Mega Shot was the momma. We named him Ranger, and I took him out to live in Colorado with me. Well he loved it there, especially our hikes through the mountains. Then we moved to Virginia Beach to live with my fiancé, and he loved the ocean with its crabs and fish to chase, and he also helped train me for my first half marathon. He would've ran in it if dogs were allowed I'm sure. And now we live on Guam. My fiancé is a navy diver and has been stationed to the USS Frank Cable here on Guam for the next two years, so Ranger moved here with us. He is a wonderful dog; he's so smart, very friendly, the best running buddy I have ever had, and he adores my fiancé (sometimes I think more than me). When I bought him from you, you had laughed saying Colorado was the farthest place one of your pups have gone, well just thought you'd like to see how far he's gone now. We have a large fenced in yard here for him to chase all the geckos in, and has especially enjoyed chasing the chickens and roosters out of our yard whenever some wander through the fence. I get compliments all the time on how handsome and great of a dog he is. One of our neighbors has even offered to pay double or more for what I payed for him because he's so impressed by him. But of course he's never going to be for sale. In the pictures I've included he and I are "boonie stomping" through Tarzan Falls on Guam. He's loving it. At two and a half years old he's about 58lbs and full of energy of course. He's also gained a boonie puppy sister that he will be coming back to the states with. He seems to enjoy having a dog friend to play with and wrestle while I'm at work. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Ranger is definitely one of a kind :)

Hi, Tracy. How are things with you?
Brooke and I picked Willy up at Terry's today. He was there for 4 weeks. I have to say I am very happy with what Terry was able to do with Willy in that amount of time. He was able to shoot some birds over him and he is retrieving reasonably well. Now, when I get healed up a bit more I need to work on his whoa and heel better. We'll see where he is at this Spring. I may take him back up for a little more work.
Thanks for you recommendation of Terry. He is everything you said he was. I am impressed with his patience.
I attached a few photos of Willy this afternoon when Terry placed some birds out for us to see what Willy had learned.
Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Great 2014.

Nathan

We are getting ready to celebrate Cabela's 1st birthday this week (12/26/13). I couldn't have asked for a better companion. Cabela and I are absolutely inseparable and I am told all of the time that no one has seen a dog so attached to their owner. Cabela and I enjoy hiking, playing in rivers and lakes chasing geese and ducks, and visiting as many new dog parks as we can find. Cabela and I are also very involved in our local dog training club, having completed courses in Puppy 1, Puppy 2, Beginning Obedience, Pre-Rally, and AKC Canine Good Citizen. I have many training goals set for Cabela and she continually surpasses my expectations. We make a great team!

Cabela is loved by all who meet her. Everyone recognizes her by her signature stocking and think she is an incredible GSP. I love sharing with others who aren't as familiar with her breed about their wonderful characteristics and interesting history. We occasionally run into a GSP fan, and they just have to know where I found a pup as unique as she is.

I couldn't have asked for a better friend. I am grateful for Tracy and his family for allowing me to visit Cabela before officially taking her home, and continuing to celebrate in our successes. Thank you so much Tracy for a wonderful dog. I can't wait to tell you more about our future adventures!

Thought I would send you some pictures Rigby 10 months. He's 46lbs. Yes he is great. He took right to our other dog follows her rules. He loves chasing with the dirtbikes/fourwheelers. I don't think he is done growing still has some loose skin.

Hello Tracy, this is a recent picture of Rebel. He is now in training to become a therapy dog. He recently just passed his off leash training. I am a nurse at a nursing home and decided to take him in there on my day off. And he did wonderful. It's like he sensed how brittle the people where. I take him there at least twice a week now. My residents love him and he is able to let off some of his energy!

Tracy,

Thought you may like to know that our girl Zetta (Dec 2011 litter - Lookaway’s Jack and Coke & JAK Sojourner Mandy) is doing great, both at home and in the fields. She listens well, learns fast and has plenty of love to share.

We took her out in the fall for her first hunt and she was a natural! She has great nose, can see anything that moves, stays solid on her points and finds downed birds fast. While she has all of the typical GSP energy, it’s amazing to watch her slow down and really focus as soon as we are in the fields. I couldn't have asked for a better dog and friend.

Thanks Tracy, I hope your family is doing great as well.

Happy new year!

Take care,

Clay & Jodi

Queen Zimbra Marie Williams

Tracey,

Not sure if you will remember Zimbra (we picked her up in May of 2011). She is like one of the family and my shadow. I could not ask for a better dog… She is great with the grandkids kids and house mate Zeke (the cat). I worked her with chucker’s over the summer and her nose in incredible. We made our first hunt of the season on Saturday after many puppy hunts last season and brought home our first bird solo (attached). What a dog… I look forward to many more! I even had another hunter ask if I bought her trained already. She just has it her blood…

Thanks

Bruce Williams

Dear Tracy and family,

I am writing to give you an update on Dyson, the female pointer pup we brought home from the July 14th litter.

We are so happy with Dyson as a companion pet. She is loyal and affectionate - she greets us enthusiasticly when we come home from work, is happy just to be near us, and eager to please. When we brought her home eight months ago we house broke her in just 5 days, never having had a poop accident. Obedience training has taken longer than I thought it would, but she is improving every day. She is still wearing a training collar but we need to use it less and less.

Her enthusiasm and energy bring much joy to our daily activities and outdoor adventures. She has been pointing since the day we brought her home - even though she's a house pet. As a young pup it was pointing moths on latenight potty trips, and now she spends most of her time in the house watching birds out the back windows. She stalks robins on neighborhood walks, and points ducks when we go across the street to the pond. We never had to teach her to fetch. She's been fetching sticks and tennis balls since the day we brought her home. She doesn't seem to know what tired is, which makes her a wonderful exercise partner. We are so happy to have her.

Oh- and she is pretty! I think she could be on the cover of a magazine, but maybe I am biased. Attached is a picture of her at an apple farm this past fall (about 16wks), and a picture from the first time we took her trailing (about 8mo).

Sincerely,

Courtney, Matt, and Dyson
Blackburn

Submitted by: Rick Bryan on December 31, 2011

Tracy,

Just a note to say our doug Scout was on fire as a 1 year old dog in SD this year she held her own and had several points over "wild" pheasants. No guided/farm hunts for us all on our own.

I could not have been happier in her performance she worked hard and held steady despite some warm weather. On top of all this she has made a great house pet that my girls truly love and cherish.
I enjoy the fact that she has topped out at about 38lbs. which is a nice change from my previous pointer that hit 70lbs.

Thought you might enjoy hearing about one of your dogs.

Thanks,

Rick Bryan

Hey Tracy,

I recently received one of your dogs as a gift from my parents, Donna and Vic. The dog Chesa, named for the Chesapeake bay (her current swimminghole) is doing great. Chesa is a great learner and has already mastered
the sit and fetch part. I have finally got the pictures off the camera onto my computer. Currently Chesa is doing awesome playing fetch with an orange bumper, once I get photos of that I will send them to you. I have more photos, of her swimming and playing fetch. Also, I ended up purchasing the SportDog Lucky Dog collar, I didn't have a need for all the extras the Tritronics sport basics came with, but the link did help me to gather up so info on what is out in the market. I will keep you posted on further developments.

Cheers,

Nick

Hello,

We purchased Goose from you in the Summer of 2010 and I wanted to show you what a beautiful dog he has grown up to be. Our family truly loves him and he is a very happy dog. If you ever have puppies that look like him again, please let us know.

Enjoy the pictures!

Hey Tracy,

Sorry it took so long to give you an update on Lucky, she's great. Don't know where to start, she's great. Very easy to house break and crate train only took a couple weeks. She learns commands very quickly, she comes when you call her in the field and she does great on a lead. We have a bike/ running trail by our house and she usually gets between 6 and 7 miles of running a day between me and Angie. The people we pass on the trail can't believe how well mannered she is even around other dogs. She's also does well retrieving I work with her several times a week with dummies wrapped in pheasant wings, she's been finding and pointing at pheasant wings since she was about 10 weeks old, here in the next week or so I'm going to introduce her to live pigeons.

Very happy with our pup that we purchased from Tracy at lookaway kennels. She is only 10 weeks old but is looking great and seems to be adjusting well. Can't wait until I can get her out in the field next season!

I recently obtained a puppy from Lookaway Kennels and I am very happy with my dog Dakota. He is 9 1/2 weeks old and I have had him for 2 weeks. So far he has learned to sit, shake, stay, come, and he is pointing a pheasant wing with the wing and string method. He is 95% house and crate trained and has been going to public hunting land for an hour at a time. At this time his range is about 10 to 15 yards and comes when called. He seems to like water and is in the begining stages of retrieving in the field with a tennis ball. He has been very easy to socialize and learns at a very fast pace. After his shots are complete we are going to take him to more places to socialize. Besides having the desire to please me and what appears to be very good hunting instints, he loves to just lay beside you or lay on you for companionship. I will be posting more infomation as he gets older and learns more things. I would like to thank Lookaway Kennels for the opportunity to get Dakota. Tracy was very helpful and gave up his time so I could come out and see Dakota when I wanted.

 

Tracy,

Thought we'd send you & Sherri a quick update on Dakota. He weighs about 21 lbs now. If you have pictures of his littermates, we'd love to see them. We are very pleased with the Native dog food. He has the softest coat, everyone says he feels like velvet. We'd like to know if it is actually working in that it keeps his growth even. So far we feel it is. In a few weeks we plan to take him to the Wolf Run dog park after he has received his last series of shots. He loves to go for rides which is great because we'll have a long one come November when we go to South Dakota. He is a great pup, we are very thankful for him.

Thanks again,

Mike & Shannon Treisch

Lookaway Kennels was very helpful in choosing our puppy. They gave us frequent updates about him and let us visit whenever we wanted. I would recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a great GSP.

My husband had decided that he was finally ready for another German Shorthair so I searched until I found Lookaway Kennels. I was quite pleased with the owner's responses to my many questions.
I definitely will refer anyone looking for a quality puppy, to Tracy. We love our little boy.
