Geoge:
Jack is four months old today. He celebrated the occasion by making his first solid grouse point. I killed the bird in the air and he retrieved it. In the past month he has pointed more than 30 woodcock, six pheasants, one chukar and one grouse. And he's only four months old! Your breeding and early puppy training really pays off. I'm about to be 79 and having this little dog is making me feel 20 years younger.Thank you!

George: You will be delighted, as I am, to hear that Jack is a great success. He rode all the way home -8 hrs - on the front seat without even drooling. Slept most of the way except for stops to pee and drink from lakes we passed. He came into the house and met the family, ate his dinner, had a brief run, then settled into his crate in the kitchen and slept until daylight when I got up and took him out. No accidents in the house.
This morning I took him in the car on a few errands and he waited quietly while I went into stores. Then we came home and got out a pigeon to work while it was still cool.

I showed him the bird and he was excited about it. Then I left Jack in the barn while I rigged the pigeon in jesses and attached it to the end of a 75 foot string that is tied to the top of the pigeon pole. Then I brought Jack in on a long light check cord. The bird stood up in the grass and Jack saw it. But rather than rushing in, he stiffened up on point and stood there while I walked in and flushed the bird. The bird flew the length of the string and crashed to earth again. Jack ran over there but this time he could not see the bird that was hiding in the grass. There was a soft breeze and as soon as Jack passed downwind of the bird he hit the scent and jammed up on point, nose twitching on the breeze. I moved up to him and pushed him towards the bird. He resisted and pushed back against my hand. I stroked his back against the grain and stroked his tail up. He was frozen into a classic high-tailed point. I backed off about 50 feted he stood right there. Then I moved in on him and went through the hands on stuff again. He was rigid. We flew the bird 2 more times with the same perfect results and then I put the pigeon back in the coop and put Jack in the kennel to review his thoughts about it all. So, he IS a bird dog. No doubt about his ability to use his nose and his pointing instinct. He's got it all. Now it's up to me to keep providing experience and opportunity and to make it easy for him to do the right thing.

He also retrieves! I have a small paint roller that he likes to carry. If I throw it he brings it back to me and I swap him a food treat for the roller. He delivers to hand every time.

Thanks, George. Jack is everything you promised.

We got a little 13 week old female Gordon with a small white spot on her chin (goatee) from George on Labor Day 2014. We registered her as "Bagley's 2 Feather Kate." During the second and third weeks of October 2014 she went on her first big bird camp trip. We shot many woodcock over her and she was less than 4 months old. Lightning fast, brilliant hunt and point, steady as a rock to gun fire and possesses all day full throttle endurance. I'm a Master Maine Guide and have trained and hunted upland gun dogs for many years and am very impressed. Kate is now 11 months old and is an amazing and fun little dog. I recommend George's proven blood lines of Gordon Setters to anyone that truly wants a dog that lives to hunt (not just a house pet) upland birds.

We have Lizzie (spring litter, 2013) who has been a great dog. She is energetic and very obedient. We have never had a dog that learns so quickly. Lizzie loves to run and her whole “life mission” is birds. I highly recommend George as a breeder. In addition to giving us a wonderful Gordon Setter, he was always available by email or phone to answer any of our training questions.

We purchased our Male this August. He is from the Spring 2013 Litter. When I first met the pup (Cash) I was impresed with his stunning looks. I was immediately apparent that he had a head full of brains. When George took us to his training grounds I observed a young dog with all the tools to make a great upland bird dog ! George is a straight shooter. The pup was exactally the way he said. I would not shy away from George's line of dogs.

Hi there, George.

I wanted to let you know that Gunner is settling in with the family very nicely. He's one smart puppy dog! He is completely house trained with not a single accident since we got him. He's already pointing and retrieving, coming when called most times, no whining, barking, etc. He's even telling us with a whimper when he needs to go out. We're very happy with him.

Thank you for the care you put into breeding great dogs. We'd recommend you highly to anyone serious about raising a quality Field Gordon Setter. Thanks again!

We have Murphy (blue) a male born in march of 2013. Our trainer says that Murphy is about the smartest dog she has ever helped train in 20 plus years of training. He is very energetic and bold and does require a firm hand. He is bird crazy and is pointing well at 5 months. He gets along well (to well sometimes) with our English setter and does not have a mean bone in his body. George does an excellent job with his puppies being sure that they are well socialized and started in their training.

I have a 1 year old female Gordon from George. Casey is energetic, loves the outdoors, has an excellent nose for birds, and works well with my English Setter. She is a typical Gordon Setter: fun loving, comical, and loves to be in the field. George is very knowlegable about dogs and does a great job training his puppies for the field. I highly recommend George Badley as a breeder of Gordon Setters.

We have a male from one of last years litters. Takoda is intelligent, loving, a quick learner and loves the outdoors. These are beautiful dogs, anyone who has the opportunity to purchase one will not be disappointed.
