"Achieving Excellence Thru training and education"


We are Jason and Megan Marzolf and we are the proud owners and operators of Marzolf X Kennel, and would like to welcome you to our family.  We hope to be your last stop when looking for your future family hunting companion and/or an amazing place to take your existing family companion for training or testing that could involve everything from basic obedience to a fully finished hunting dog.
We would love the opportunity to speak with you and your family and have you stop out and see the facility and dogs.  We are a small family owned/operated kennel where the dogs are a vital part of our family.  Our goal is to produce top quality German shorthair pointers that will excel in the family, field, and water and have the natural traits of; on/off switch, pointing, retrieving, and a strong water desire.  We love to involve the whole family to include the children as they are the future of our sport.

We are highly dedicated to improving the German shorthair pointer breed and assisting other in bringing out the full potential of their companions.  We are both very active members of;
