Clipper - German Shorthaired Pointer

Welcome to Whisper Ridge Kennels, Breeders of Brittanys and German Shorthaired Pointers of Quality and Distinction. Located in So. California, with an additional location in northern Nevada.

Whisper Ridge Kennels was founded by Stephanie Kepler (daughter) and Sue Richards (mother), who began their interest and love of showing dogs with their first show dog, CH. Stargazer’s Apollo, a Newfoundland. They soon gravitated to the Sporting breeds, focusing on Brittanys and German Shorthaired Pointers. This genesis was based on an aspiration to contribute to the betterment of these breeds by showing and producing top winning, quality dogs that excel in both the show-ring and the hunt field.

This kennel takes great care and pride in breeding Brittanys and German Shorthaired Pointers that are sound and in good health; but they also ensure these dogs have a great temperament and personality. We selectively breed only 1 or 2 litters every few years.
All of our puppies are home-raised to ensure that they not only excel in the show-ring/hunt field, but will be wonderful companions and members of their new families for a lifetime.


Stephanie brings to the partnership over 10 years of experience in the veterinary field as both a clinical and surgical assistant and is currently continuing her education in both canine & equine medicine.

In addition, Stephanie has been riding since she was 8 years old, and has over 17 years of experience in competitive show jumping as well as training of Hunter/Jumper and pleasure horses.

She has won many titles in both Hunters and Jumpers , as well as English equitation and Pleasure. Stephanie offers a wide range of horse training options as well as lessons, from beginner to advanced.. For riding and training information please contact Stephanie directly via email - Email
