Our dogs are hunting partners as well as family members. That means well-behaved in the house and sociable with people, children, and other dogs.
We believe conformation is important, both in the show ring and in the field. Our dogs must meet the FCI standard and be free of hereditary defects (OFA or PennHIP certified for hip dysplasia). We strive to produce hunting partners with natural hunting, pointing, tracking and retrieving ability—and excellent temperaments.
We believe bird dogs must have these basic qualities:
• Desire - A dog with strong prey drive and desire should be focused on searching for and finding game.
• Nose - A dog may have all the desire in the world, but it must have a "nose for game" to locate birds when they are present.
• Biddable - Besides desire and a good nose, the dog should be eager to please and easily controlled.
Our dogs are rigorously hunted during open seasons and tested in the off season in field trial events sponsored by the American Kennel Club (AKC), United Kennel Club (UKC), North American Versatile Hunting dog Association (NAVHDA) and local clubs.
We know they can hunt!
Our dogs are family
