Prefix : OSTOJA (German Wirehaired Pointer)

German Wirehaired Pointer since 1978
Our early foundation dogs came from the UK and German imports from NZ,Ostoja (Geoff Oakes) hunted,trained,and trialed the first Dual Champion German Wirehaired Pointer in Australia in 1983, paving the way for future working Gwp's: The kennels going on to produce 25 Aust Champions,Three Field titles & 4 Obedience titles to CDX,from the original imp lines.

Recent imports from the UK with strong working lines continues to establish Ostoja as one of Australia,s leading kennels, supplying the dedicated hunting sportsmen both here and overseas with outstanding working stock. The first GWP,s bred in Australia to obtain field trial titles came from Ostoja,these lines have been dominant workers,hunting in all terain over three decades,and continue today working on all types of game.

To ensure our breed types and confirmation are correct,Ostoja exhibits in recognised showrings,including Royals,as can be seen by the young stock that have obtained their Australian show Champion titles,some are shown here on this web site.Our latest progeny by the import dog "Baron" out of our working bred bitches,youngsters with strong natural instincts,correct harsh wiry coats for in the field and in the showring, give owners great confidence that our lines work their hunting scene (and can also be shown) as well today as ever,and our lines are now recognised as outstanding working utility gundogs and as loyal companions.
