Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Sadie! She is an awesome dog and a great family dog too. She loves people and has already been pointing some. Thank you very much for her.
We will keep you posted on her progress. She already knows her name and has not had any accidents in the car or house! I love that!! Thank you again for raising such a great dog. She gets lots of love and attention around here. Have a great day!

Submitted by: Craig W. on Jun 23, 2012Hi Guys,
The trip home went very well. The flight was delayed two hours (an ATC center on the east coast burned down and messed up the whole system). Rather surprised that the pup ('Top Gun's Top of the Rock', Rocko for short) did not soil himself in the car or kennel once. We stopped about 5 times, once at Dyersville as you can see (thanks for the tip), on the way to Milwaukee and he took care of business. He was also quiet as a mouse the whole time. A few peeps if we weren't in direct view, but that was it. Very well behaved.
Can't tell you how impressed I am with your operation. From the cleanliness of the kennel, to the quality of those dogs it was an outstanding experience. Keeping a whole litter of pups for a year to insure that they had the traits you desired really blew me away. That's commitment!
We're off to the vet today and learning his way around his new home,
Take care and I'll be in touch,

I have a couple things to say. First of all, I wanted to say that I made the right choice when I chose Top Gun Kennels. Your kennel and you are world class! To many times, I have gone on road trips to pick something up, and I've been disappointed upon arrival. Not the case with you! Your facility and your professionalism, exceeded all of my expectations. But never once did I feel like this was a business transaction. The "Faith, Family, and Friends" saying that you have on your website, is what drew me to Top Gun Kennels, and you truly live that. Thank you!
Second, whatever socializing that your daughter and you did with the pup, has paid off. She whined very little on our ride home and only for a minute last night when I put her in her kennel for the night (11 pm). She never made a peep all night! She is running around our house and doing her business out side like she's been doing her entire life.
Again, thank you for the wonderful experience.

We are having a great time with Dee. She is a gem. She settles down in our lap so well and is very smart. We are very excited for the years to come.
Thank you for a wonderful dog

Submitted by: Timmy Suggs on Dec 19, 2011Diamond carry’s the prestigious Top Gun prefix in her name and is a good example of the high quality GSPs that Top Gun strived to produce. Diamond's deep pedigree will enable us to produce exceptional hunting companions to promote our kennel's future. Diamond was a natural in that she pointed, held point until the flush and honored from her first hunting trip. She completed her AKC Master Hunter title before the age of 2 while only being trained by myself. Many of the Judges and Professional trainers were surprised to find out her young age when she was running the Master Hunter braces. Diamond is an exceptional hunting companion and has received many compliments during paid hunts from a very young age.

I met you at the GSPCI clinic last week, a pleasure by the way. You spoke about "hyper-hydrating" a dog prior to taking the field, I'm wondering if you could name a few of the products (powders) you have used?
P.S. I have been much more consistant with the commands and the use of the trigger and will continue to do so, I've seen progress already. Also, no more leaning into me or my wife. I learned a lot in a few minutes of expert advice. Hope you can make it out next year.

Thanks for attending the GSPC of MN AKC Hunt Test. You have some very impressive dogs. I also admire the professional way in which all you not only handle your dogs but how respectful all of you are towards other handlers, Judges, and volunteers. This game needs more of us out there. Good luck with rest of the Hunt Test season and have a great hunting season. Look forward to seeing next year!

I would first like to personally thank you for your wonderful hospitality these last few days. They say Texas in known for their “southern hospitality” however I have never experienced the kindness of good hearted people like I experienced in Iowa this weekend. It was a pleasure meeting each of your family members along with your family friends. I cannot thank you all enough and words cannot explain how impressed and grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to come to Iowa and meet such wonderful people that I did during my two day trip. To welcome a complete stranger in, make them feel as if they are a family friend at home, introduce them to your friends and family and allow them to tag along to the gatherings that you allowed me to, indeed truly shows the wonderful character of each of you as a person and I am grateful to have met each of you. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of people in my life time and deal with many of good and bad people every day with my profession however I can honestly say, your family and friends left a truly wonderful impression in my heart that I will never forget and I cannot thank you enough.
It was an experience that I will never forget and have truly found a state that I will defiantly be visiting in the future hopefully at least once a year for a hunting trip or to pick up another dog (Haha).
You have produced and operate an awesome kennel and have produced and raised some fabulous dogs. I have no regrets of choosing Top Gun Kennel as my choice with the purchase of my first German Shorthair Pointer. Your facility’s are top notch and are without a doubt the best Kennel facility’s I have seen in person or online. I believe that the first thing that sticks out within your Kennel business is the customer service which is outstanding. Your willingness to teach and expose your new dog owners to as much as you can in order to be able to give their new puppy the opportunity to success of becoming a family/hunting companion of even reach the Master Hunter level , goes without noticed.
The techniques that you use to train your dogs to such a high level are very easy to grasp and not overly difficult to understand or teach. As an instructor in a totally different line of work then what you teach, I truly believe in and appreciate your methods of instruction and training. You hold your breed at a very high level and expect the same out of their owners which I respect to a great deal.
Also as an instructor it is my perspective that although the “learning objectives” may be totally different, the teaching methodology should always remain the same throughout everyone’s learning process, no matter what type of experience or skill of the person. We must first start out with the very basics and excel to an advanced level from there. Your teaching methods are very simple and easy to comprehend which will allow any person willing to learn, the opportunity to excel at a high level and build their puppy to the companion that they desire.
As for “Tex”, I am again overly impressed by his performance as a five month old puppy however after meeting you all I would not have expected anything less. I am very excited to bring him home at the end of the month and show him off to my friends and family. I am even more excited about sending him back up to Iowa in a few months and seeing the final product that he will produce in the hunting fields of Iowa and Texas.
Once again I want to thank you all for your welcoming hospitality and valuable time during your busy weekend to entertain me. It was an experience that I will always appreciate and never forget. I am blessed to have met a family and friends like yours. If I can ever be of any assistance to you, family, or friends in any type of way at all, please do not hesitate to give me a call. I will do all I can to help out. If you need a reference here in Texas or anywhere worldwide give them my number and I will be more then glad to fill each of them full of positive facts about your Kennel business.
Thanks again Steve Jodie, Rachel and everyone else I had the opportunity to meet this weekend and I truly mean it.

Submitted by: Jay Johnston on May 11, 2010Dear Steve and Jodie,
Sarge is the best gun dog anyone could want.
I took him for a run from 5:45am to 6:30am on the 8th hole this morning and he loved it. He thought he was back in Iowa but for the 80 degree temperature! We got some quail chicks and are raising them on a farm here for fall.
He said to tell his kennel mates he hit the lottery as he is very happy with his new surroundings.
Again, he is the best dog I have ever owned. You guys are really talented breeders.
