We produce some of the best AKC field bred Labrador Retrievers, American Field English Setters and American Field English Pointers in the Country!  Annually our dogs qualify and compete at the AKC Master National as well as in AFTCA Horseback Field Trials and NSTRA Field Trials. 

We offer professional Retriever Training and Upland Bird Dog Training for all breeds Pointing Dogs, Flushers and Retrievers.  We are centrally located in Washington state. Ellensburg is readily available to clients from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond.  Whether you are looking for a Hunting Companion or a Field Trial dog, you are welcome to join us for a training day.  We offer a free evaluation of your dog and we welcome all aspiring dog trainers, handlers and bird hunters alike.

"With a desire to be constantly learning, evolving and thinking outside the box,  I like to think that our style and methods of teaching and training are unique.  But they are a culmination of countless hours in the field with many different types of people, bird dogs and retrievers.  We have had the opportunity to be exposed to the many great trainers before us.  George Hickox, Bill Gibbons, John Greer, Larry Calvert, Mike Lardy and Butch Higgins just to name a few.  Training methods are passed down from generation to generation but all the best trainers have something of their own that can not be explained.  It is that which makes our program unique.   We look forward to training with you and your new hunting buddy".
