About Us



Reece Kennels was established over 15 years ago when Mike and Angie Johnson purchased their first German Wirehaired Pointers and fell in love with this truly versatile breed. Reece started with two boys and now have 7 GWP's. Mike and Angie believe in a selective breeding program, they don't breed for quantity but for quality; and only breed German Wirehaired Pointers (GWP's) so they can focus on correct breed type & conformation, temperament, natural working ability and an all around versatile & hard working dog. Reece Kennel strives to breed dogs that have all their health certificates and are tested to be health certified free of hip & elbow dysplasia, thyroid, cardiac and CERF by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFFA). Their GWP puppies are properly socialized, introduced to birds & water and at 7-8 weeks of age, they conduct the Volhard Puppy Aptitude test and conformation evaluations. Their main goal is to provide dogs that are versatile and that make great family pets and companions.

Taking Home a Puppy Is a Big Decision. Choose the Right Breed from the Right Breeder.

One area where Mike and Angie give a lot of importance is the health of this breed. They are supporters of the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) and have several dogs that are CHIC certified. Being CHIC certified means that these dogs have participated in all the health screenings that the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America (GWPCA) suggest before breeding. They have also participated in several GWPCA events towards improving the health of this breed and given financially to health studies that help detect hereditary diseases.

Since Mike and Angie started Reece Kennels they have breed some of the top dogs in the country, with dogs winning multiple Best In Shows to National Specialties to dogs competing at the highest level in the field with Master Hunter and NAVHDA Breeder Awards. They also have dogs competing at the top level in agility, tracking, coursing and many other AKC venues. When Mike and Angie are not working dogs, they are very involved with numerous GWP and hunting organizations. They are active members of the GWPCA where Angie is the membership chairman, she also volunteers her time to work on the clubs magazine and communications to the membership. We are also members of the Suncoast GWP Club of Mid Florida where Angie and Mike are founding members. We also belong to NAVHDA International and Central Florida Field Trialers (CFFT) where we do our field training and finally Angie is a member of the Imperial Polk Obedience Club where she is an agility instructor.

Reece Kennels sits on 3 acres in Polk City near Lakeland Fl.. The property is a large barn with living quarters upstairs, three offices downstairs and three stables. The property was originally used for horses but we converted two of the stables into four indoor/outdoor dog kennels. The property is entirely fenced in with special sections for training in Agility and Obedience. Our puppies are born and raised in Angie's office where they have access to the outside when they are old enough. We encourage puppy owners to come visit the puppies when they are old enough and thereafter.
