Welcome to the Flinthill Website
Owned and nurtured by Flo Barker
I hope you enjoy meeting some of the dogs I have bred and others who have lived with me and my family over the years in the North East of England.
I have owned pointers and Irish setters since 1989 and my dogs are much-loved companions as well as show dogs and all have the basic ability to do the job for which they are bred - finding birds.
The dogs are handled by me in the show ring and I am approved to judge pointers and Irish setters at championship show level.
I have bred two UK show champions, have eight pointers in the Kennel Club's Stud Book and have bred two pointers who have become champions overseas.
This year marks the 29th anniversary of Flinthill and the granting of my affix by the Kennel Club after my first pointer litter was born in 1992.
I am also proud to have been the editor of three books about pointers: Pointers Worldwide 2010, Pointers Worldwide 2012 and Pointers Worldwide 2014
Please e-mail me to find out more about these books and how to get them.
