Freiheit Kennels - Est. 1983 ~ German Shorthaired Pointers & Pointers
Our newest champion,
Another of our latest champions,
Freiheit in German translates in English : FREEDOM....the capacity to exercise choice, free will; originality of style.....boldness, a liberty.Freiheit Kennel name began with my German Shorthaired Pointers in the '80's. Freiheit is not a commercial Kennel but my passionate endeavor to be a responsible steward for the GSP, Pointer and any dog in need!! I am a small breeder on a limited basis and have puppies occasionally.
Our German Shorthaired Pointers and Pointer puppies and adults are from quality American and Import pedigrees. My mentor and dear friend, Karen Detterich, Paladen GSP's & Pointers, has influenced the direction of my journey in this wonderful world of the breeds. I have co-bred many champions with the Freiheit and Paladen name together proudly in a dog's registered name.
Freiheit Kennels, located in the Cleveland area of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, promotes good dog health. We believe in x-rayed hips and elbows before we breed and each dog must have OFA rating of good or better. Our dogs are all AKC American Kennel Club - registered.
Our respect and love for the role the German Shorthaired Pointer and Pointer provide in a family is primary to who Freiheit Kennel is - past, present and into the future.
Without our dogs to walk, how empty our mornings,
our evenings-our lives-would be. ~Eric Rickstad
