This page is currently being updated
On this page you find pictures or videos of our dogs. There will be some testimonials and some info about previous litters.
If you have questions about up coming litters please give us a call and we can discuss your needs.
We are not a kennel that just keeps turning out litter after litter. Each litter we keep 75% of the litter and train them up to sell as started pups,started dogs or finished grouse dogs.
This way we always know the quality of any cross and the bloodlines we work with. Only a couple of pups in a litter will be sold depending on the litter size.
The goal for any dog or pup from our kennel is for them to live with a family, are hunted during the hunting season and are developed to their fullest potential and loved.
Jay owned by Philip Paquette avid grouse hunter in Maine
Sire of Jay Kenzie and dam was Lady M
Jay is awesome!!! His personality alone was worth the investment. He does great on anything he is asked He is with me constantly. If I am outside working he is right around me. If I’m on the tractor he just follows along. He is trustworthy and never roams. It is raining today so I decided to go for a ride to the gun store. He is curled up on the front seat.
I have taken Jay every where. Two days of Hunter safety class. LL Bean, Cabela’s, Veterans home, Automobile Dealerships, Vet Office, And on and on. He is everything you said he would be. I’m ready to get another soon. Everyone who has met him loves him. All want to know all about him. He is an excellent Maine Farm dog and a great hunter.
Katie owned by Chuck Holicky avid grouse hunter in Wisconsin
Sire of litter Kenzie and dam was Josie
Love that we stay in touch. That was one of the reasons I chose to buy a setter from you. You're very concerned about all your dogs and want to make sure we have success.
Katie is a little over 2 years old now and she's already one of the best dogs I ever owned. She's very focused, loyal, intelligent and a wonderful hunting companion. She learns quickly, ranges well and seems to need few repetitions when learning new commands.
We got our first grouse and woodcock when she was 11 months old and we were successful on her first attempt at hunting wild pheasants as well. Not only is she good in the wild she's also great around the house. As I told you many times we are the perfect match.
Happy is an understatement ease to train, enjoyable in the woods and a great addition to our family!
Neil Goodchild avid Wisconsin Grouse Hunter
Rose is doing well. She has house trained quickly and adjusted to a crate almost too easily. She has not messed in here crate! She comes to work with me every day, and gets let out a few times throughout the day, so that certainly helped in getting her accustomed to the crate in the proper manner.
Forrest M. Gibeault avid Wisconsin Grouse Hunter
She has been doing so good!!
But overall we work on usual things routinely and she is very eager to please. She’ll whoa on command and allow me to walk around her and release only when told to do so, she’ll heel well, and come (responding to the beep collar well for that). I’m pleased. I just need more hours in the week to work her on birds!! Overall, she is just an incredibly sweet dog…she really is. Loves affection.
