About Prince's Quality Gun Dogs
Young male and female on a wild bird hunt in KS, last wk of January. Both are very natural at the retrieve,hunting,great noses etc. The female in the pic is 6 mo old. The genetics that produced this pup, showing her natural ability including honoring in the field are just some of the traits that we strive for. This is my PROMISE to you, I will do my best to give you exactly what you deserve for your dollar. I DO NOT BREED ANY OTHER BREED therefore specializing in the GSP and producing the best is my #1 goal. I do however train about any pointing breed. I hope that you will take the opportunity to find out what I am talking about and why I try to produce Quality with and emphasis on style, natural ability with an never ending drive to please you in the field while also pleasing themselves finding birds then why not consider a Prince's Quality Gundog. Let's talk about testimonials. Testimonials are something that are given by an individual free of will hopefully giving other people insight on what one's merchandise or product is like. All testimonials are given when the pup or dog or training has been PROVEN!!! No testimonials stating that QUOTE (I had a great experience purchasing my pup or that I am a nice guy) are given until the pup has proven to be what I said it would be. That could be 5 mo of age taken bird hunting for the first time, 6 mo competing in events or what ever the case may be. I hope that what I tell you is nothing but the truth and what I sell you is even more than what I say it is. We ship anywhere in the US mostly by van which is much more humane and less stressful on your pup or dog. The van is climate controlled with 2 individuals on board. One driving while the other is always taking care of your pup. With this I give a GUARANTEE on health and hunting abiltiy. I encourage you to view the testimonials below by scrolling down and see the difference if the number of testimonials are more important or the number and the QUALITY is more important. Please visit my website to find out more about me and my kennel. Thank You very much for your support and kindness. Prince's Quality Gun Dogs!!

I found Prince's Quality Gun Dogs after doing some research. After talking to several breeders in Texas where I live and not being real excited about what I heard from them, I called John and immediately felt like I had found the right place to get my pup. Without prompting, John described the traits in his dogs that I had been looking for: trainable, great personalities, drive, versatile, natural abilities, etc. From the time I picked up Otto at 8 weeks he was pointing everything from houseflies to birds in the yard to his training bumper. I knew I had a winner when I took him out with a gun at 5 months. On his first quail he slammed to a statue-like point and held for me to flush the bird...his very first! Otto is a natural retriever. He loves the water and made 30-50 yard retrieves from a very young age. Hunting abilities aside, the other quality that makes John's dogs great is that they are perfect companions. Otto is as great in the house as he promises to be in the field.

I came to pick him up this weekend after 8 weeks of training. (Otto is now 10 months.) Otto covered ground like a horse in full gallop but screeched to a halt as soon as he hit scent and held like a pro. John demonstrated that he could take the pigeon and put it in Otto's face with the wings flapping, and Otto would hold. While quartering, John held his hand up without saying a word and Otto whoa'd to complete stop and waited for his next command. I've never seen a 10-month-old bird dog whoa and take the temptation of a bird its wings in his face. Very impressive.

I imagine that many would be reluctant to drive to SE Kansas to get a dog. However, the quality you'll get from John's dogs will make it worth the effort.

Thanks for your time, attention, and quality breeding and training John! I couldn't be happier with Otto. I look forward to many seasons in the field and evenings with him laying beside me on the couch!

I contacted John at the end of the yr in 2013 to inquire about purchasing a dog that would be good for Texas bird hunting. John sent me pics of a pup that I picked out and he said he would raise it and train it for me. He was born on Oct 2,2013 and finished in early July of 2014. I drove 10 hrs to Johns home from Victoria TX. We met John on a Thursday evening, went out to dinner with John and his wife, spent the night at Johns house got up the next morning to watch my new dog in the field. We went to the field turned him loose on birds. He pointed 3 birds that John planted for him with a very high tail (straight up). He handled on command, he would hold a bird til the sun goes down. John even put a bird on his snout and he would not offer to grab the bird but when it came to retrieving he retrieved birds a total of 6 times with one retrieve at about 70 yds. Very soft mouth, would Whoa on command running away to only turn around looking like he was on point everytime John would holler WHOA!!!! My expectations were actually exceeded of what I would be getting. If you want someone that will lead you in the right direction and place you with the right dog for both family and or hunting then I would HIGHLY recommend John and his expertise. He not only treats you like a client but like a friend opening his house to you and not even really knowing you. (WHO DOES THAT)!!!!!!! Thank You John for the opportunity to own such a great hunting companion. Jack Miles

I purchased a female pup out of Prince's Cody of Arms in 2013 sent her to John for training in June of 2014. John had her just over 3 wks and what I had expected had far exceeded my expectations. John called me up at 3 wks to say my dog was done and I wondered whether or not that would be the case when I watched her in the field. When he turned her loose. She looked an experienced dog. She would WHOA on command with a high tail and stand a bird that would walk or that John would literally drop or hold up to her face and not budge a bit. He had her retrieving, handling, loading on command, would call off of a flying bird, retrieve out water etc. I would HIGHLY recommend John to anybody out there looking for a HONEST and RELIABLE trainer. Sincerely Brad Swofford!

Over the past couple years I had considered buying a GSP. I have hunted English Pointers my entire life and simply wanted something different. I wanted a calmer breed and hoped to find a strong natural retriever. I searched a lot of different GSP breeder websites and liked John's. I have to admit that I am very skeptical by nature and I don't believe everything I read. I contacted John and told him what I was looking for. We talked about his dogs and the different breedings he had planned. John told me that if I bought a pup from him and I wasn't happy that he would make it right. I talked with John a couple more times and planned a trip. I asked him if he would show me his dogs on birds while I was there. He said sure. I went down, met John, and talked about his dogs. He took me out and showed me the ones I wanted to see on birds, and a couple young pups as well. I liked what John had to say and I liked his dogs. I looked at several pups that were on the ground and found one that I liked. Since taking the pup home I have been very pleased. Benelli is now 5 months old. I have kept her inside and she is doing well. She is pretty calm inside the house. I have played with her retrieving and she does well. I do like to train using a "click and treat" method with puppies for the commands "here", "sit", and "kennel". I only do this because I like to see how smart the pup is and I think it is good to stimulate the mind at 6-10 weeks old. My pup progressed quickly. Up until yesterday she was collar conditioned to "here", exposed to birds, retrieved clipped wing pigeons while on check cord, and introduced to the gun. Yesterday I went down and met John to work the pup on birds. Up until this point she had only flash pointed. We set out her first bird and she pointed and bumped the bird. Same on second. Then on the third bird she pointed and held to flush. She repeated that another time or two and we killed three birds over her. We worked with her and she retrieve each of them. All that leads me to this. John is an honest man and has a good line of dogs. I am very pleased with Benelli at 5 months and I have no doubt that she is going to be a fine bird dog. I have high expectations for my dogs and Benelli is showing all the signs of meeting those expectations. John has answered several questions and has always made time for those conversations. I recommend for anyone looking for a GSP to consider John. He has been first class with me. Dale (Kansas City)

I bought a GSP from John Prince in October of 2012 and he has turned out to be one of the best natural hunters I have ever seen. Cooper not only hunts like a champion, but he is my best friend and companion too. Thank you John.

Our gsp, Henri, is 10 months old today. We purchased Henri from John Prince in May and could not be happier. We knew we wanted our pup to be part of the family. We live in downtown Austin and take our dog with us everywhere, restaurants, bars, hikes, etc. John helped us pick out our pup and he was right on! Henri is the most well rounded dog I've ever owned. He retrieved and pointed right at 9 weeks old. He has been easy to train. I'm sure he would make a great hunting dog. John Prince took his time in answering all of our questions and really cares about putting his dogs in the right homes and the happiness of everyone. We have considered getting another puppy and when we do, I promise it will be from John Prince. You cannot go wrong!

I got my female GSP, Rooke from John almost exactly one year ago to the day. When searching for a puppy I called many different breeders and John by far was the most welcoming and willing to answer my many many questions. When speaking with him he told me how the instincts of his dogs are the best I can find out there, and he did not oversell. Rooke pointed feathers at 5 weeks old the night I took her home. Rooke went with me at 10 months old to South Dakota and all the guides were impressed with her abilities and asking where I got her. John was so accommodating in helping teach me to be a better handler as Rooke is my first hunting dog. If you're like me you've been searching and reading about every breeder on let me save you some time and say, stop searching and go to John for your GSP.

Thanks again John,

I cannot thank you enough for the quality of service you provided from start to finish in helping me select and train my GSP, Rooke. When I began searching for the right breeder for my GSP I called multiple breeders in the Kansas and Missouri area, and when I spoke with John on the phone he was more than willing to go into great detail not only answering my questions but providing his professional opinions about different options that I was undecided on. When going to see his dogs for the first time, John took the time to provide a demonstration of his finished dogs in addition to letting me look at all the puppies and see how they reacted around birds/wings for the first time.
I took Rooke home the same day at 5 weeks old. When I took her home she was pointing wings on a rod and string the very same night! When you speak with John he will tell you how instinctual his breeds are, sometimes to the point that it has to seem like overselling. I'm sure I'm not the first customer of John's to say, he is not overselling the quality of his breeds at all! I took Rooke back for training with John and she was finished in time for my trip this year to South Dakota, where the other guides and the owner of the club were all amazed at Rooke's abilities at 11 months old.
What is great about John's service is I feel comfortable calling and getting advice on handling Rooke at any point. John provides top to bottom, start to finish, great customer service. For those looking for a quality dog, Prince's Quality Gun Dogs is the place. I have told John that any prospective buyers that want a customer's view in more detail can get my contact information from him and I'd be more than willing to share my experience and answer any additional questions from the customer's perspective.

Thanks again John,
Paul & Rooke

Recently, I found myself back in the market for a GSP after my 9.5 year-old male passed unexpectedly a week ago. I immediately looked up Prince’s Quality Gun Dogs, having had great luck with one of his dogs in the past. I started the conversation with John about what I was looking for and possible timelines, as I now have a young daughter who has a birthday coming up so I wanted to time it right if I could. After chatting with John via email, I quickly remembered why I bought my first GSP puppy from him. John is an honest businessman and is truly interested in getting his customers the right dog for their needs so they will enjoy a lifetime of memories in the field. After chatting with John and reliving our first encounter, I felt compelled to write a testimonial for anyone looking to buy a GSP. I know John will treat you right and get you a great dog in the process!!

I first met John back in 1994, when I was a teenager looking for a GSP pup. I ended up getting a great male, Dallas, out of one of John’s litters, out of Rawhide’s Clown. He was BAR NONE the greatest dog a person could ever own. I am sure many have heard the old adage “a man only gets one truly special dog in his lifetime;” Dallas was that dog for me. He was a hunter right out of the gate. The first time I had him on birds he was 4 months old and he locked on point between two coveys in a thick CRP field. I remember thinking “There is no way this puppy is on birds; this is the first time he has smelled wild quail.” He held until I got to him and I managed to shoot my first triple out of the exploding coveys. I knew right then that this was a very special dog. He lived to be one month shy of his 16th birthday with no issues. He had a great temperament and was always eager to hit the field, where he was ALL business. He also was a great family dog and good in the house, great with people and kids.

Everything came so natural to Dallas. He covered ground like he had been trained by the best, but he was trained by a kid training his first dog, highlighting the natural ability that John breeds into his litters!!! I truly believe Dallas never missed a bird in his life. He outhunted every dog he ever ran with; always the first to the point and holding the longest. Everyone that hunted over him had a profound respect for his abilities and often told me he was the best dog they ever hunted over. The sympathy I received from friends and hunting partners when he passed might have been the biggest testament to his hunting ability and impacts on others who were able to share the field with him.

If you are looking for a GSP, I strongly suggest you look into Prince’s Quality Gun Dogs. Give John a call and let him know what you are looking for and I am confident he will help you out. I myself hope to be leaving another testimony for John and his kennel in the near future!!
