George knows his business raising Gordons who have desire, style and are introduced to birds and shot prior to going to new homes. I was already familiar with George's line having had two dogs with some of the same blood. Ms. Sofia is coming on to a year old and is showing great promise, points from a long distant ( very desirable if grouse hunting is your game) soft mouth and great energy--Sofia likes her job. As a Maine Guide my dogs need to hunt several days in a row, find and retrieve birds, adapt to various terrain, and be able to hunt grouse, woodcock, perserve pheasants, and quail, sometimes all in the same day. George's dogs can do it all and when the day is over they are great house pets. I know several of George's dogs and their owner's reports mirror mine.

You can not go wrong buying a Gordon setter from George Bagely .We picked up Blue on May 19th and could not be happier with our 4 month old pup. We have shot quail over him and he retrieves to hand. He is finding and pointing Woodcock and I will start to work him on Grouse in a few weeks. George's pups are the most biddable easy to train bird dogs I have ever seen.I wish I had met George decades ago.If you want a pup who will be ready for opening day George is the man to call.

George-- This pup (we named him Emmett) is one fantastic creature. He is as smart as can be, perhaps the best behaved dog I've ever owned, and, as you can see, is very much into hunting at 8 months. Can't thank you enough for including me among last Fall's fortunate buyers. Hope all is well with you. John

Hi Mr Bagley,

Here some news about Spike. This year was a busy fall for him since grouse are quite rare around here after a cold spring. So Spike had to really found the birds and he did...impressive I would say. I hunted 3-4 hres per day with my little guy even if he wanted more.

Spike is small and light and he is very intelligent. My friend has two german that look more like bulldozer. They get tired after 2 hours and they run only for the easy stuff. But, Spike goes everywhere, using the wind and finds birds where other dogs fail.

I though you would be pleased to know about Spike.

Best regards

George, Just update on Stout. Took him hunting on Sat. with 4 Liewellin setter. He did very well. Pointed a few pheasants & retrieved 1. He is coming along nicely. He listens to commands even with the distractions of the other dogs. I am leaving for South Dakota tomorrow for 3 days of hunting. Hopefully I can get some good pictures of Stout. I'll let you know how he does. He has to be the quickest learning Gordon I have had. It's hard to believe he only 7 mo. old. Joe
George, We had a good hunting trip to South Dakota. Stout continues to amaze. His first day was a little rough, birds were running due to the dry conditions. He started chasing And running when birds were getting up out of range. Once I got him under control, he was great. He had many nice solid points on roosters. He retrieved several birds to hand & held points while other birds were being flushed and shot. He located a crippled bird that was running. You would never know he is only 7+ mo. old. He is definitely the pick of the litter. Sorry I don't have any pictures to send along. It's hard to work a dog, hunt and take pictures. My wife is going with me this week to take some. Thank again for a great dog, Merry Christmas, Joe

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.
