We are dedicated to breeding class wild bird dogs. We live and hunt on the South Dakota prairie. Our dogs are hunted extensively for pheasants, prairie chickens, and sharptail grouse, with occasional hunts for quail and ruffed grouse. Our dogs hunt 100% wild birds, and 90% on public land. This type of hunting is challenging, and provides the ideal setting to evaluate our dogs. Our dogs are proven in the field prior to entering our breeding program.

Our breeding program focuses on the following traits:

Natural Ability
A dog must seek out and intelligently work likely cover. They must adapt to the birds and situation. For example, running pheasants must be worked smartly and sometimes aggressively, whereas a covey of sharptails will tolerate no pressure.

Temperament
Trainability and stability. Dogs that are of sound temperament, willing, and eager to work and train.

Endurance
Physical stamina to endure varied hunting conditions including terrain, temperature and cover.

All our dogs are registered with Field Dog Stud Book
