Welcome to Glacier Borzoi and Griffs!
"All of my 6 Griffs to date have been great hunters and family pets but I've neither had nor seen any Griffs better than my current 2 from your Glacier Kennels. Tess and Lucy (aka: "The Girls") have great temperaments and are very biddable, easy to train, easy to handle in the field and on leads in crowds. Both are energetic, tough, and durable during all day hunts and have excellent noses."
"Mickey, our Glacier Griff, is formerly known as GCH CH Glacier’s Midnight Cowboy JH, is the most amazing, instinctive hunting dog we have ever owned. He has surpassed every expectation we had. He has also given us an opportunity to get involved in dog conformation shows, where we have met a lot of really nice and interesting people."
Our New Arrivals
New at Glacier - Two European imports! First, our German boy Nutz Von Der Hohen Ley. We are excited to have Nutz here! He is just what we wanted; hunt drive, cooperation, correct size and a coat to die for! New lines to us in the US, so important to our breeding program.
Secondly, Our newest girl Lies (rhymes with piece). (Earl Radipole of the Fleet X Glacier's Continental). Lies is of Dutch registry, therefore a natural tail. Thanks to both Uschi Van Elten and Patrick Assink for these lovely Griffs.

About Glacier Kennels
We make our home 26 miles from Glacier National Park in beautiful Whitefish, Montana.
A beautiful Montana morning at our home.
Our best friends live on 3 acres, and have beautiful outside kennels, woods to play in and a large yard to romp in. They do, however, prefer to spend the evenings in the house (it is THEIR house, of course. They are very nice to let us live here too!).
We enjoy the deer that visit often as well.
We compete in conformation, as well as lure coursing with our Borzoi, and hunt tests for our Griffs.
We pride ourselves in providing the best environment for our own dogs, and our guests as well (see Three Dog Ranch)!
Our goal is to breed Borzoi and Griffs that can compete equally in the show ring and the field. Our breeding priorities include temperament, prey drive, conformation and biddability.
Thank you for visiting our site. Come back often!
Lisa and Allan Durand
To be able to catch his game, the Borzoi was bred for speed, agility, and strength. The Borzoi possesses a unique elegance, unlike any other breed.

Wirehaired Pointing Griffons
The Griffon is a close working hunting dog. Unlike many pointers, the Griff was developed to hunt with the Gentleman hunting on foot, not on horseback. The dogs are highly intelligent, and hunt for you, not just for themselves.
