Northwoods Bird Dogs is located in rural Pine County, Minnesota, about 12 miles east of Sandstone. It is conveniently situated 100 miles north of Minneapolis/St. Paul and 50 miles south of Duluth, Minnesota.

The kennel building has 20 spacious indoor/outdoor runs. The top-quality chain link kennel panels were manufactured by the Mason Company. Each run is outfitted with rugged and comfortable Mason Rest Benches, galvanized water buckets and wolf-size chew toys. Both dogs and kennel runs are easily kept clean and dry with radiant in-floor heat.

The adjacent kennel office is convenient for washing bowls and water buckets and for storage of medicine, supplies and training equipment. Amid the various plaques, trophies and photos of past champions is a cozy spot for taking a break.

Surrounding the kennel building is a sturdy chain link fence. In addition, two large areas are fenced in for exercise areas.

Northwoods Bird Dogs is a preferred customer of Purina Pro Plan and exclusively feed their top quality food.

Monday – Friday are full working days and the kennel is open for visits from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Saturday is also a working day but with limited kennel help and therefore restricted hours from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The kennel is closed to visits on Sunday.

Even though Jerry and Betsy are usually around the office and kennel, their work days are busy with many commitments. Please respect their time and that of other visiting clients by being punctual. While they understand the difficulties in planning an exact arrival time due to their rural location and possible traffic issues, please be courteous and inform them if you’ll be early or late.

Clients, puppy buyers and other guests are welcome to visit but please contact Betsy and Jerry to arrange an appointment.
