ABOUT US

We love gundogs. After decades in the business, we’ve seen it all and are passionate about what we do. In addition to training, breeding and boarding dogs, we regularly do speaking engagements focused on gundogs.

We offer an in-depth understanding of training techniques and problem solving for each individual dog.

Obedience Course
We teach the basics to get any dog under control including Sit, Come and Heel. Available for any and all breeds, we equip pets and their owners for success.

All Around Gundog Course
Pointing dogs will learn obedience, retrieving and steadiness as well as versatility in water and the uplands. Retrievers will be trained in these skills along with multiple marks.

Pointer Hunt Test Training
This training includes obedience, retrieving, pointing, steady to wing and shot, honoring other dogs, and tips on hunting tests.

We produce German Wirehaired Pointers that are intelligent, intense in the field, bidable, and social with people and other dogs. Both started and finished gundogs are for sale.

$20.00 per day

In addition to a clean kennel, each dog receives quality personal attention on a daily basis. Plus, your dog will benefit from our quality nutrition program featuring Hi Point premium dog foods. We’re also happy to accommodate special requests to create a comfortable stay.

Please make an appointment for you and your dog ahead of time. We require a certificate of vaccination to ensure your dog(s) is up to date on shots. Also be sure to let us know if your female is in season.
