Cumbrian Kennel EST. 1967 Henri and Nancy Tuthill
A popular metaphor in dogs we often hear is “in it to win it” What best describes us is “In it for the long haul” the recent pandemic has been a trial to the dog community, but it’s also been a realization we are committed to preserving our gene pool no matter the circum- stances. We have a dedicated group of team members who enjoy our pointers in all aspects of dog ownership from beloved pets to wonder- ful hunting and successful show dogs. Our present collaboration with our friends and co-breeders Darrell and Amy Crate started when Darrell purchased his lifelong companion and exceptional gun dog “Larry” in 1999. After several family pets, Dar- rell and Amy became involved in not only showing but breeding sev- eral litters and champions here with Team Cumbrian in the last decade. Amy and Darrell have been a huge influence in channeling enthusiasm and revitalizing our interest in continuing to breed outstanding point- ers culminating with our combined efforts to attain the Top Breeder and Top Sire awards in 2019. We are proud of our accomplishments in the past 54 years.
