Welcome to Great Basin Kennel

Clarence Gamble and Eddie Rodriguez

Thank you for visiting Great Basin Kennel. We hunt, compete and breed the highest class bird dogs in Nevada. We have acquired some of the finest Elhew bred pointers, as well as the nation's top German Shorthair lines, including Western Pride, Rawhide's Clown, Dunfar, and Snip's Ticked Off.

We believe in the Elhew line, as their biddibility is world renowned. We are ever so grateful to Mr. Bob Wehle for developing this fantastic line of dogs. We are not kennel blind though, as we do purge and upgrade our lines from time to time, and believe in outcrossing to Fiddler and Miller bred bird dogs.

Our Shorthairs can run and find birds with any breed of bird dog. We will not tolerate a run off, but likewise bootlickers serve us no purpose. We are extremely proud of our dogs, as they have proven themselves time and time again in the field. Take a look around, and by all means, call us to talk about bird dogs!



     Throughout the summer we will post photos of training sessions with our dogs, and those of others who have purchased dogs from Great Basin Kennel.  One of the great joys I receive from raising dogs is meeting new friends and training with them.  If you have purchased a dog from Great Basin Kennel and would like to go out and train this summer, please contact me at (702) 813-0822 and we can get together!    Click here to see our latest training session. 


Great Basin Kennel was privileged to acquire an interest in a frozen semen son of HOF Ch. Elhew Snakefoot.   Jay's first litter was by GBK's Sin Nombre, who is by Ch. Rockacre Blackhawk x SM Elhew Hazel (double Hanna's Elhew Lou bred).  As expected, this mating produced the quality of pups we demand here at Great Basin Kennel.  We will continue to use Jay as a stud on select females chosen for their bird sense, style and toughness.  Jay is available as a stud by private treaty.  Please contact C.G. for details.
