ROCK HARD KENNELS STARTED IN 1999 IN LEHI, UTAH (15 MILES SOUTH
SALT LAKE CITY ) IT IS OWNED AND OPERATED BY
ART AND MILLISA COX.
THE KENNEL SITS ON 4 1/2 ACRES OF COUNTRY, WE RAISE HUNTING
DOGS THAT WE ALSO FIELD TRIAL.
WE HAVE ACTED IN THE PAST AS THE PRESIDENT / VICE PRESIDENT
AND FIELD TRIAL SEC.
FOR THE GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER CLUB OF UTAH.
WE HUNT OUR DOGS 1ST FROM FOOT AS WELL AS
FIELD TRIAL OUR DOGS IN AKC AND AMERICAN
FIELD HORSEBACK TRIALS. WE HAVE DONE BOTH FOR SEVERAL
YEARS AND WE LOOK
FORWARD TO MANY YEARS TO COME. MY WIFE AND I AND OUR THREE
CHILDREN HAVE MADE DOGS OUR PASSION AND WE ENJOY DOING IT
AS A FAMILY, YOU COULD SAY GOOD DIRT, GOOD DOGS AND GOOD
HORSES ARE IN OUR BLOOD.
OUR MISSION AS A KENNEL IS TO PUT THE BEST POSSIBLE DOGS WE
CAN ON THE GROUND AND GIVE THEM EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO
WE LOVE GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTERS AND ARE COMMITTED TO
"I field trial because I love to; because I love the environment where birds are found; because bird dogs do not lie or cheat but respond only to endless patience; because there are no telephones, or televisions on the field trial grounds; because only at these times can I find solitude without loneliness; because some day I may win a big one. But in the meantime I enjoy my dog(s) and my friends."
Our dogs wear and we recommend Snow Canyon Outfitters hand made leather collars, as well as SCO line of dog training equipment. we feel Kent puts the same quality in our collars as he would building a collar for his own dogs check Kent's fine products, Snow Canyon stands for quality....
collars,pinch collars,holsters and much more!
