Titus is now 15 months old and we've had him for 1 year now. This is my very first gun dog owned and my first training experience.
He has hunted ruffed grouse, pheasants and quail and has provided solid bird work on all 3 species to date despite the differences. Our local focus is wild bobwhites where Titus has out produced all other dogs every day hunted we've hunted this season so far. He will occasionally range out but normally works at a close moderate range the majority of the time. The denser the cover, the closer he works and adjusts accordingly. He has a ton of natural ability and intelligence. Improves almost everytime we go out.
He is a house and family dog also. He sleeps with my 8 year old daughter and the two are best buds. He listens to her as much as he does me. Is great with kids and loves them. Might caution with a baby but handles 3+ kids very well. Gets along with all other dogs and is not agressive in the least bit. Even with puppies.
Titus can hunt all day and put up the miles in thick cover and not lose any determination or motivation. Likewise he can flip the switch and is a complete relaxed couch potato at home. Knows when to turn it on full and when to relax.
David and Donna have been very helpful and friendly from 1st contact and have continued to be a great resource over the past year.
I would strongly recommend anyone to consider the Robinsons, their kennel, and their great dogs if looking for a natural and well mannered GSP.

I'm writing this Testimonial in May 2016 exactly 2 years after J.J. was Born from David's Jack x Molly. I can say with 100% Confidence that I have never had a dog Fully Loaded with as much Natural Ability as J.J. Since I brought him Home he has been a Natural Retriever and by the time he was 6 months old he proved to be a Natural at Backing/Honoring my other GSP's. I rarely have to tell him something twice because he is a very good Listener and is very eager to Learn.
I am a very fortunate 'wild' GameBird Hunter and have been able to travel from my home state of Illinois and take J.J. to Idaho to hunt Valley Quail & Pheasants. The State of Washington for Valley Quail, Hungarian Partridge and Pheasants. He has also traveled with me to Kansas & Kentucky multiple times producing finds/holds on Bobwhite Quail as well as more Rooster Pheasants and Prairie Chickens.
Matter of fact, last Season in December 2015 outside of Belle Plaine, Kansas I was with a small group of Hunters from Kansas and we had three GSP's in an cut/cleared Milo Field. J.J. being the youngest and least experienced spun in the middle of the open Field and pinned a Rooster Pheasant and held point till shot. Anyone that has been in this type of environment knows that a empty/cut Milo Field is a Challenge (Great for Quail, Harder for Pheasants). The other Hunters noticed how he had been finding/holding the majority of the Birds the two previous days so when he Produced this 'wild' Kansas Rooster there was NO Hesitation from another hunter to purchase him at $1,800 cash, same day. He has Proven his Worth in less than two years. In my opinion it's Priceless.
David breeds Excellent pups and I would not hesitate to own another.

I purchased my 1st GSP puppy from Grousebusters Gundogs in August 2013. Duke was a born natural hunting dog. At 8 weeks of age he was already retrieving toys straight back to hand with a soft mouth. At 16 weeks of age, he past his advanced obedience course with flying colors. At 1yr old he went to gundog school with a well known trainer, who declared Duke a natural. We have been hunting together all season , and he continues to amaze me with his disciplined approach and instinct.
In May of 2014, I picked up my 2nd GSP puppy from Grousebusters. Dom is another solid pick, and comes from a different breeding pair than Duke. Both dogs have bonded well, and at 8 months of age, Dom is currently away a gundog school. Again, my trainer is extremely impressed with Dom's intensity, natural ability and drive.
Grousebusters certainly has a great formula going in their kennel and breeding program. If you are looking for a GSP that is bred for hunting and being your companion, then you need to speak with Grousebusters Gundogs. I'll be going back again for my next addition to the pack.

I purchased a Roxie X Ruger pup in May of 2014. I am an upland bird guide at Rocky Mountains Roosters in Calhan, Colorado. My pup is loaded with tons of natural ability: points, backs and retrieves to hand. At 8.5 months of age, Scout is so developed and steady in her ability that I am using her to guide with already. You know your pup is good when the experienced GSPs start backing her and my clients want to buy her. Scout has about 20 - 25 professional hunts under her belt already. I have not had to force fetch, use a whoa table/post with her or a check cord. She just wants to work and is extremely confident.

My husband and I reserved a pup out of Pearl & Rugers litter in early September, pups were born in October and Grousebusters sent me pictures like clock work every week of our sweet Stella! It was so nice and reassuring to see her grow and mature! When I picked up Stella from their kennel I was amazed by how clean the kennels were and how healthy all of the dogs were, not to mention David & Donna were so kind let us into their home in the 20 degree weather and talked hunting and dogs with me for over an hour! The day I brought my 7 week old Stella home she was retrieving toys, sticks, leaves, balls everything right to my hand. Also at 7 weeks I took her quail hunting with me and she retrieved a wounded quail a dog dropped and brought it straight to my hand. 2 GSP breeders/hunters/trainers were hunting with me and were amazed by her instinct and drive at such a young age! They had NEVER seen a pup as outgoing as she was and still is!!! Thanks to Grousebusters for this extremely intelligent hunting buddy!!!! Not to mention stunning champion bloodlines!! We have already reserved a pup out of Pearl & Rugers next litter!!!!!

It is easy to admit that Davidís dogs have turned our breeding program around. A few years ago, I was trying to locate a good hunting dog line. I had the Rusty and Moesgaard dogs but I was not happy with their water work or natural retrieve, and they were running to far out at times. I contacted David because he was a grouse hunter and had a German American line. I got three puppies from David, and he could not have been nicer.
Jack and Jill are from two separate breedings from David. Jack might possibly be the best dog Iíve ever owned. Talk about a dog that can do it all, this dog can. Great natural retrieve, great water work, ducks, quail, doves, 3 kinds of grouse, huns, pheasants, bobcats, badgers, foxes, coons. Az., Nev., Cal., Wash, Montana, etc. As you can see I think pretty highly of this boy. Jill the same kind of dog, even better on sharptails. Great point, backing, water work, etc. Also both dogs are therapy dogs, their that nice. Believe me, I could go on and on. I have a kennel with lots of German Shorthairs, and believe me David has great dogs at a great price. By now your probably thinking that Iím Davidís brother or something. Iíve only met him once. Visit my web site and see Jack and Jill, and there sons and daughters, and believe me I highly recommend Davidís Kennel.

We purchased Gunner as a pup to be a companion for our 7 year old son. He has turned out to be one of the best dogs we have ever owned! We have owned several different hunting breeds as well as working stock dogs. He is the perfect buddy for our son and goes everywhere with him. Pick up a gun and he is all business with the most amazing nose. He has pointed since day one and retrieves like a Lab. I have used him in the dove field as well as pheasant hunts in South Dakota and quail hunts in Kentucky. Everywhere I hunted with him, someone wants to buy him or find out where I got him. I can easily recommend David and will definitely own another GSP!
