About Nitro Kennels

Nitro Kennels, located in Northwest Missouri, is dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the Elhew Pointer - Bob Wehle's remarkable legacy, and the ultimate gentleman's shooting dog. We breed, and hunt, only pure Elhew Pointers with lineage tracing exclusively to matings personally crafted by this founder of Elhew Kennels. Our breeding program is a virtual extension of Mr. Wehle's 66 year odyssey. It represents an ongoing quest for ever better gun dogs - a goal best achieved by enhancing signature Elhew characteristics through carefully crafted breedings of exceptional, complementary, sires and dams. Our familiarity with the subtle differences in temperament and performance characteristics resulting from different combinations of Elhew genetics provides us with the necessary insight to recommend an ideal prospect for the type of hunting that you do, whether it be Texas quail, Iowa pheasants, Idaho chukars, Montana huns, North Dakota sharptails, or Maine grouse.

Our Elhew Pointer Breeding Program

Nitro Kennels' Elhew Pointers are specifically bred for functional conformation, biddable temperament, exceptional natural ability, and classic good looks. With proper socialization, basic yard work, and exposure to wild or released birds, they develop into fine gun dogs at an early age. Our Elhew Pointers are classy, athletic, thrive on attention, and make great family companions.

At Nitro Kennels we are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of every client. Our pups and started dogs are accurately represented, and fairly priced, accounting for our high percentage of repeat customers. You will find us to be straightforward, honest, dependable, ethical, and committed to providing you with a prospect that will exceed your expectations. Every pup we offer is guaranteed to be sound, healthy, well socialized, and free of performance compromising genetic defects. All of our sires and dams have perfect bites.

Whether you have only recently become aware of this wonderful pointer bloodline, or are an enthusiastic student of the totem and a current Elhew Pointer owner, we look forward to visiting with you, and sharing our passion for this aristocrat of pointing dogs - the Elhew Pointer.
