About Shiok Ridge

Shiok Ridge Kennel, LLC is a family owned kennel near Green Bay, Wisconsin owned by Kelley & Erika Tatroe. We initially began our bird dog obsession with Labrador Retrievers many years ago; however, after numerous years of agony and heartbreak due to poor genetic health of the breed. We decided to seek a different breed;  that is when we found the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. 

Our Wirehaired Pointing Griffons have a strong drive, excellent temperament,  a superior nose and a proper coat. We believe in Form and Function…proper form translates to less field injuries as well as endurance, stamina and efficiency in the field. All of our foundation stock have had their hips tested and have proven to be at the top their breed. In addition, we also have either tested all of our foundation stock to ensure they are KBKB or that they are KBKB by parentage. The eyes on our foundation stock are OFA clear, elbows and thyroid are OFA normal and all of our dogs are dual registered NAVHDA & AKC. We hunt our dogs hard every week during bird season and they have proven to be outstanding in the field as well as outstanding companions at home. Temperament is also top of out list in our breeding program because hunting season is only so long; therefore, your Griff must be a pleasure to be around in any environment. We hunt test our dogs through NAVHDA and AKC to the highest level as we believe this is an important factor in determining the biddability of our breeding lines.

Needless to say, we are passionate about our dogs and trying to do our part to better the breed! Anyone is welcome to visit our kennel and meet our dogs and us at any time. We are an authorized dealer for Garmin, Sportdog Systems, Dogtra and DT Systems; therefore, if you need any recommendations for training tools or equipment, please do not hesitate to ask.
