Good puppies are no accident.   Careful selection of brood matrons is crucial to our breeding program.


My guarantee is that no Matron makes it into our breeding program without first proving herself as a top notch Grouse Dog.  If they don't POINT GROUSE and show the ability to handle them on a consistant basis, they don't get bred!  Our dogs must also demonstrate good field confirmation, style (both on point and in their manner of run), nose, birdiness, biddability, and personality.


I evaluate all of our dogs in September and October during the hunting season.  The dogs have to demonstrate the ability to consistantly point and hold Ruffed Grouse for the gun to make it into our breeding program and once there, they need to throw it in the litter box or they are not considered good breeding stock.


We are getting it done where it counts
