SPECIALIZING in ONLY raising 100% Pure LLEWELLIN's SETTERS from Richard Purcell Llewellin, Esq. himself, his personal bloodline known as his pure "DASHING BONDHU" Llewellin Setters. These were his personal bloodlines for 50+ years until his death. No other bloodline is his personal bloodline and is 100% genetically clean.

They are the ultimate, "NATURAL", close working, foot hunting gentlemen's and lady's bird hunting machines and loving family companion dogs ever created in the world.

Our PURE Dashing Bondhu bloodlines were originally imported directly from William Humphrey (England) 1960's, Fr. Brannon (Ireland) 1988, and a pure Humphrey bloodline imported from Belgium in the 90's.

These are the SAME EXACT pure bloodlines that produced OLN's "HANK" of OLN's #1 Sporting Show for a number of years "Hunting with Hank" and his son OLN's "DASH" of OLN's "Upland days with Dash and Dez".

We feel honored to share this. I always love sharing how much we are so pleased with Brynne. She is been outstanding inside and outside.

She is an intense hunter. We love watching her "train herself". Ken has been working with her outside with hand signals and voice commands, but she is doing most of this on her own. He does not hunt anymore for pheasants, etc.

What a fantastic Breed of Field Setters you have raised.

God Bless Mike and Marie,

I just wanted to provide an update on a pup purchased from Mountain View Kennel.

Cricket - has been a very welcome addition to our family. I have 2 kids (aged 3 and 5) and Cricket seamlessly joined the family.

This past season (2013-2014) was her first real season of hunting. Her first fall hunting trip in Eastern Washington was a pretty sour experience - for her and me. We were hunting Chukar at elevation and about 45 minutes in, we reached a ridge-line, sat down and took a break for a drink of water. While I rested, she was searching around the rock outcropping. Next thing I know, she's over by my feet with a look on her face and I notice a small dribble of blood on her upper lip. A hunting buddy's Springer started sniffing around the same area as Cricket was previously searching, acting very spooky. We walked over, and the distinctive buzz coming from a Western Diamondback was heard, and seen coiled ready to strike (again)! At this point, I killed the snake, scooped Cricket up and back to the truck we started. About 30 minutes later we arrived at the truck, loaded up and started flying down the jeep trail towards town. If you've ever hunted chukar in it's (transplanted) habitat of the Northwest, you know that chukar hunting is done very far from any sort of civilization, very high up in the steep hills. We were about an hour to the Vet.'s office once we arrived at the hard-road after speeding down the jeep trail for what felt like an eternity. On the way, Cricket was in pain, and appeared to be passing out. The Vet got her on a saline flush with anti-venin on standby if her coagulants dropped below threshold. Luckily, she didn't need the anti-venin, and I picked up a very swollen, very happy-to-see-me pup the next morning. A week later, and she was back to her normal, fun-loving self. I've included a picture of her before and after the snake-bite.

As bad as I felt for her, it was compounded by the concern that she wouldn't be able to make it to my annual 2-week North Dakota pheasant hunt. It would be her first time, and I really wanted to see her in action on wild pheasant. She had been put on released birds in the pre-season, and I knew for her to really excel, she needed the experience that only wild birds can provide. Luckily, she healed just fine from the snakebite, and we made our trip to North Dakota.

Her first day on North Dakota birds gave her fits. It was a blast watching her try and figure out 1) how to home-in on a single bird with so much scent in the area, and 2) how to keep those birds from moving. It took her some time, but she got better and better each day working the cattails and shelter belts. By the 3rd day, she was really starting to get the hang of it. Oh, she busted a bird or two every now and then, but each day busted birds became less and less of an occurrence. Each day, I shot my limit over her, being very careful to only shoot birds she pointed - after all, this was all about her learning how to hunt. It wouldn't have been fair to her if I were to confuse her with shooting non-pointed birds - which meant we let a lot of birds go. Which also meant she would watch the birds take off try and chase them down. Luckily the area is sparsely populated, and a person can see for miles (literally). I knew that the only way to get her out of that habit was more and more birds - that patience would make her see that it wasn't fun to chase birds, when I wasn't interested in chasing along with her. Patience paid off, as the last few days of the hunt were a sight to behold - on the last day, a limit of birds (on a VERY down year in North Dakota) before 11:30 am, and we started hunting at 9:00 am. It was a joy to see her work those birds. She graduated that trip into a great little bird dog. I am always longing for more time in the field, but it was time to go home and we packed up and headed back west. She does great in the truck, by the way...

Since then, we've hunted wild quail, pheasant and chukar here in Washington, and she has excelled on each (She REALLY doesn't like to fetch valley quail, though - I suspect it's the taste...), I am including a couple pictures of this past season so that you can see what a beautiful dog she has turned out to be. My wife and I put her on birds this past weekend, and everywhere we go we get compliments on her looks. What really pops their eyes, though, is to watch her work birds. At that point, her looks plus her style plus her nose comes together into a beautiful bundle of dog that can only be described as God's Handiwork in action.

I know that this sounds over-the-top -but that was a compliment given to Cricket by another long-time bird hunter I hunt with late in this season.

Thank you for breeding these dogs, Mike & Marie.

As far as the 40 yard point, this is a regular occurrence with Cricket - to the point that I take it a bit for granted. It's not a creeping point, either. If she's located the bird and the bird isn't moving, she'll lock on point. Obviously, if the bird is moving - like wild birds are prone to do - she'll work the bird until she gets a good set. Always careful, always trying to get the bird to set.
Just so you have proof for all the nay-Sayers out there, I am sending a picture of Cricket on a long point - this one is only about 20 yards (posted on our Testimonial webpage). She located the bird quite a bit earlier and worked the bird until it set. The bird is circled.

I purchased a Blue Belton puppy from you on May 18, 2010. He was from Ashley and Henrietta, # B10M8. His name is Nicky and he has been (and is) the BEST dog we have ever had. He is fun and well behaved member of the family and we have hunted him extensively in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. Mostly on grouse and woodcock, but also released pheasants and chukars. We couldn't have asked for better!

If possible, I would like to purchase another male, Blue Belton puppy with similar bloodlines. Ideally, I would take possession the end of April or beginning of May of a beautiful 8-12 week old.

I am sending a check for $100. as a deposit.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am mailing a deposit check today to add us to your waiting list for another female puppy. We got our Ella from you last year, and I just want to tell you how delighted we are with her. She has an amazing temperament: great personality, happy, smart, and eager to please. I have her started and plan to get her more seriously into grouse this fall. Looking for a hunting partner and housemate for Ella!

Best Regards,

Colin and Suzanne Davis

Hi Mike & Marie,

Late Season training on wild quail. Steady to Wing and Shot. Honors naturally. One of the best dogs on singles in the camp. All under 2 years old. What a great little dog. Very funny around the house.

Hi Mike and Marie,

I bought Louie from you in January of last year. He was born in Oct 2012. His name is Dashing Bondhu Louie. He was pointing birds at 4 months old. He was easy to train and is genetically healthy.

I have hunted him in Florida for quail, where I live, and in upstate NY for grouse and woodcock. He has consistently searched for birds and pointed. He has a great prey drive and desire. I did a little training to get him to hold point a little longer and the basic stuff like come, stay, etc. He has done very well and I'm proud whenever I take a friend along to go hunting. I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with him.

Regards,

Larry Brock

I came down to Mountain View Kennel last month with my coworker Jamie. I wanted to thank you and Marie for bringing "Bella" into my life. It was such a pleasure meeting you and really enjoyed spending time with you while we were there. All your puppies and other pets are amazing. If somehow I end up in your area again I will make a point to come see you both.

I'm hoping the name Bella is available. She is adjusting wonderfully and I am cherishing every moment with her.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart:):)

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much again.
