- For over 60 years we've trained dogs and owners by building
a solid foundation for mutual learning, working together,
understanding each other, and most of all growing and nurturing
the bond between each other...
- Since 1951, we've bred, raised, trained and campaigned
pointers and retrievers from coast to coast. To date, we have
trained and finished 2 AKC National Champions, 2 AKC Dual
Champions, over 40 AKC Field Champions, and approximately 3,900
placements in registered AKC Field Trials. Unfortunately, we
never tracked the number of gundogs we trained over the years,
but a conservative estimate is over 2,000.
