Breeding Philosophy

We breed dogs with genetics we desire. Testing with NAVHDA(North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association) helps us improve our breeding program. We cater to the foot hunter who wants a versatile hunting and family companion.

In order to ensure competence we breed field and hunt tested shorthairs. Besides wild bird hunting and hunt testing our dogs, another way we produce exceptional bird dogs is through targeting recent ancestors that have proven hunting abilities.

Bettering the breed is our #1 goal. To do so, we stick to these standards:

  • PennHIP = a radiographic screening technique to evaluate the laxity/looseness in canine hips and determine their risk of developing degenerative joint disease.
  • CLEAR of LD, CD, DM, vWD:
  • Lupoid Dermatosis = skin lesions, lameness, scaling, reddening of the skin, erosions/ulcers, scarring, disfiguration, decreased quality of life, progresses to joint pain, low sperm count in males which progresses to absence of sperm, irregular heat cycles in females. Dogs with this disease have dramatically shortened life expectancies and are generally humanely euthanized upon diagnosis.
  • Cone Degeneration = loss of cone function results in day-blindness and decreased visual acuity.
  • Degenerative Myelopathy = an inherited neurologic disorder of dogs characterized by gradual muscle wasting and loss of coordination typically beginning in the hind limbs.
  • von Willebrand Disease II = an inherited bleeding disorder resulting from a lack or reduced level of a normal blood clotting protein and is characterized by spontaneous hemorrhaging and prolonged bleeding after physical trauma.
  • Normal Bite and Eyes.
  • Current Vaccinations.
  • Brucellosis Test.
  • Prized in NAVHDA Natural Ability and if timing allows Utility Hunt Tests before first breeding.
  • Both parents will have at least two hunting seasons under their belts.

Litter Info

Each puppy is $2,800 of which a $500 deposit is required. We take a limited number of deposits on each gender per litter. We give priority to hunting and testing homes, which means first come first serve is not our policy. We want you to be fully satisfied! When you are, we know the puppy is going to a good home.


Before puppies go home around 8 weeks of age they will be introduced to children, adults, dogs, birds, and water.
