Started & Trained Dogs


How big are your dogs?
Our females average about 40 pounds and males about 50 pounds.

Do your dogs retrieve?
Some are natural retrievers but it’s not high on our list of breeding priorities since dogs can be trained to retrieve.

Do your dogs make good house pets?
Yes! Most of the puppies and dogs we sell live in the house with their owners.

Do your grouse dogs work well on other game birds?
Yes! Ruffed grouse are the toughest game bird for a dog to handle so our dogs will be effective on other game birds.

How far do your dogs range when hunting?
Our dogs adjust their range to the terrain being hunted. They might range 300 yards in the open but will hunker down and range only 100 yards or so in heavy, dense terrain. Our dogs want to handle for the owner and have a forward, crossing pattern that keeps them in touch.

Can I visit the kennel to see your dogs?
Yes! Jerry and Betsy welcome visitors but prior arrangement is necessary. Please see Contact Us for further information.
