vom Hoko (from the Hoko)

Our Kennel is named after the Hoko River, located on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, This is our hunting and fishing haven.  Just as the ancestors of the Makah Nation used this as a spring & summer seasonal site, so too does our getaway play host to our Eagle Point hunting and fishing camp.  In truth, one goal of ours is not to produce dogs from kennels, but rather offer hard-hunting, big loving, versatile hunting dogs that are indoor family members.  Well tempered and social dogs are a breed standard.  An avid hunter, we have established the only VDD-GNA registered kennel in Western Washington.  Following the "build it and they will come" motto, will make DD's more readily available to local hunters and develop a stronger training network in Washington. With 5 of our 9 "A" Litter pups remaining in the Puget Sound area, our initiative would appear to be off to a great startl!
