Mark's first love is field work. He has trained and handled five Madrone GSPs to their Master Hunter titles and one to her Amateur Field Championship. He is also a superb agility handler, having put advanced agility titles on three of our dogs. Mark is currently training and handling Ring, Dizzy, Flip and Bobby in field trials.† He lives with two Madrone GSPs.† His oldest female, Dizzy, was ranked in the top ten Puppy/Derby GSPs throughout the entire year of 2006 and his youngest, Betsy, is just getting started.† He is the former president of the Gulf Coast German Shorthaired Pointer Club.




Madrone GSPs is a family hobby with Molly Howard (mom), Mark Howard (son), Susan Grayshon (daughter) and now the third generation, Jackson Howard ( grandson) all getting into the act.† We have been active in German Shorthaired Pointers for over two decades.† All of our dogs are house dogs and we breed a quality litter every few years.
