It’s all about the beginnings….
Our pups are raised in a family atmosphere with lots of love and attention. Our children have always played a vital role in socializing and playing with the pups. We strive to produce pups with qualities such as intelligence, desire to please, natural hunting drive matched with close handling, and a calm personality. All these characteristics must be found in a healthy pup which is free of any inheritable faults. We produce only 2 or 4 litters per year.
Pups are available to go to new homes at 8 weeks. (NH & Airline Law) Your pup comes with Health Certificate, all puppy shots, wormed, dew claws removed, and all necessary paperwork to register through FDSB. When you pick up your pup we will have items to get you started such as welcome puppy letter, puppy food, puppy care package and other items to ensure a smooth transition for you and your new puppy.
Litters and dogs registered by the AMERICAN FIELD DOG STUD BOOK (FDSB).
All breeding pairs are DNA Tested and the results on file with the American Field Dog Registry.

Deposits - $350.00 -
A $350.00 deposit will secure your puppy reservation for a particular litter and gender preference in the order it was received or place an available puppy on reserve. If you decide on a pup from our kennel, we recommend placing a deposit and sending with a reservation form. Our reservation list sometimes begins a year before a litter is due.
Payment Options :
Once you have made a deposit for a puppy you can make one lump sum payment at pick up with either with cash or a certified bank check. If it is easier, you may also make several payments up to the time of your new arrival.
Shipping a puppy requires making the final payment at least 10 days prior to the pups shipping date, this will ensure no delays in your pups arrival.
Puppy Selection :
Puppy selection takes place between 5 & 7 weeks of age. At this time the pups ticking, personality, hunting instincts and overall health have started to emerge. Pick order is decided by date of deposit reservation. It is vital that first 3 picks make their selection by the end of the 7th week. This is only fair to those on the reservation list so that a litter of 8 puppies can be decided by the 8th week. We understand that you may not always be able to visit at the required time frame. We will be happy to match a puppy with your needs. We have over the years matched up many happy puppy owners with a perfect puppy!
We realize that it may not always be possible to pick up your puppy in person. We will gladly make arrangements to meet and/or deliver your pup for a nominal fee.
Pick Up Day :
Pups are ready to go at 8 weeks. (NH Law) Pups that stay at the kennel beyond 8 weeks there is a charge of $20.00 a day.
