Northwoods Bird Dogs is a pointing dog breeding and training facility located in east central Minnesota. Our focus is on English setters and pointers used in the pursuit of upland birds — particularly ruffed grouse and woodcock.
We are adjacent to thousands of acres of wild bird habitat that offer excellent training opportunities. Our training programs are designed to develop a dog’s natural instincts and our proven techniques and plentiful bird exposure bring out of the best in each dog.
Our breeding program has been honed through multiple generations of English setters and pointers. Puppies and dogs from Northwoods Bird Dogs have it all—physical conformation, instinct and temperament—that make them ideal companions in the field and in the home.
