I was very fortunate to get a pup from Abbe Lane Kennels. I picked up Luke just before Christmas of ast year and he has been a great pup so far. It only took three weeks to potty train him, and he can also fetch, he has learned the kennel command, here, no, and sit. He is a bold pup that displays no fear of others and loves to go into the fields and woods (when we don't have 4-feet of snow). Additionally, Rob and Judy are top notch people and Rob has been more than helpful after the sale. I am looking forward to seeing what this pup can do as we begin training together when the weather clears up. I think I see a second GSP from Abbe Lane in the next year, maybe Spring of 2015.

I picked up a female pup from Rob and Judy in the spring of 07 from a litter out of Zoie and Toby. Zoya has been an absolute dream to train and hunt with. I often get complimented on her wonderful temperment and ease around new people and other dogs. Through the past seasons she has just gotten better and I often find myself shaking my head and smiling at the things that she does in the field. Rob and Judy are top notch and so are their dogs. If you are looking for a new member to the family and an amazing partner in the field than look no farther.

To anyone looking for a GSP pup. I cannot say enough about Rob and Judy and their kennel! They took the time to explain and answer ALL of my questions and are still helping me. My pup is a boy from Toby and Zoie and he is fantastic! Give them a call you will not be disappointed.

The number doesn't go high enough - if we could we would give them a 10!! For being not only the best but surpassing what anyone would expect from a breeder!

We have owned two of Abbe Lane GSP's, and still have the boy - recently we lost the little girl at 9 years of age. She was the smartest - most loving dog - the biggest couch potato - easiest trained - both of our Shorthairs have been the best all around dogs we have ever owned. Ali was my assistant dog - would pick up anything that was dropped and bring it/hand it to me. She learned this in only 5 minutes at 4 months of age. This included metal objects as well!

Rob and Judy have been wonderful people - are fantastic breeders producing wonderful dogs. We would not have a problem getting another puppy from them, and highly recommend them to anyone wanting a personal gun dog in their home.

If you would like to contact us: lasnyder@up.net
any time we would be happy to tell you more about how wonderful Rob and Judy and their Abbe Lane Kennels are!

In 1999, Rob and Judy provided us the opportunity to have two sisters out of Holzstrom's Hanna Of Abbe LN and Stradivarius Maximilien. The breeding with Hanna and Max produced two of the most intense Shorthairs that we have ever had the privilage of owning and working with. Great natural instinct, good conformation, outstanding temperment and wonderful Couch Potatos. We have had Shorthairs since 1980 and couldn't have asked for more.
Rob and Judy have a great program and are very willing to help with questions and have served as a valuable source of information for us over the years. They are fine folks that have made a good contribution to the breed. We will without a doubt stay in touch.

Just a quick note for potential customers of Abbe Lane GSP's. My daughter, Hannah, handled Skye to her Junior Hunter title at the age of 7 months and has several walking Field Trial placements to her credit as well. Not bad for an 8 year old girl. In nearly 15 years of having Shorthairs as part of my family, I have not had a dog with more natural ability and trainability than I have with my GSP from Mr. and Mrs. Moerman. So far, she has been the perfect blend of drive/desire and cooperation. I can not recommend Abbe Lane Kennels enough.

I found Rob thru a newspaper article and stopped to visit. As others have said, he loves his dogs. Be prepared to visit a while if you stop. Both he and Judy (wife) are wonderful folks and are breeding dogs for the right reasons.
I own two GSP's from Rob's line, both are super dogs and my only complaint is sometimes you have to wait for a year to get a pup. But you wont be disappointed.

If you are looking for a great GSP, Abbe Lane is the place. Mr. and Mrs. Moerman are fantastic people and know how to take care of their customers. At only 14 weeks old, our puppy Skye is showing traits and behaviors that are nothing short of spectacular: retrieving on land AND water; staunch points on quail and pigeons; beautiful structure; good nose; boldness; drive and desire; friendliness toward new people; and intelligence. Our family could not be happier. Above all, Mr. and Mrs. Moerman are breeders that make you feel welcome at their kennel and go the extra mile to earn their customer's trust. We will be going back to Abbe Lane for our next GSP!

Five years ago I purchased my first shorthair from Rob and have been happy ever since. In 2005 My dog Zeb passed the Navhda Invitational and has done
nothing but continue to get better. Zeb might be be a once in a life time dog or just one of many great dogs Rob produces either way he is the best dog I have ever owned.It is not uncommon for Zeb to retrieve a limit of ducks in the morning and point a limit of Grouse in the after noon.

In 1999 we sold our house in Ann Arbor, Mich.,built a house in Presque Isle,Mich.& moved in early 2000.
In 2001 we met another couple, Tim & Sue Eyth who had just retired from a veterinary practice in WestBranch, Mich.& moved to Presque Isle.A few days later we were invited to their house where we met our first G.S.P,"Raisin",who came from Abbe Lane, what a wonderful, well behaved house pet.
As we got to know Tim & Sue we would baby sit for Raisin when they could not take her out of town with them.We became very attached to such a beautiful,perfectly well mannered house guest,who was so gentle around our 2 year old grand daughter when she would visit us at the same time as Raisin.In the fall,after hunting with Tim & Raisin,I had never seen a dog that loved to bird hunt as much as Raisin.
Bonnie, my wife started to agitate me for another dog,our last dog,a Border collie cross had died at 12 years old just before we retired & it had devastated me.I swore we would never,ever have another dog but in a weak moment to Bonnie's agitation I relented & she was off to the races to find a Raisin duplicate.
Bonnie contacted Rob & Judy at Abbe Lane(after all,what better place to start to find a Raisin duplicate)who just happened to have a litter due.We sent a deposit,got on the list & a couple of months later we were on our way to Kalamazoo to pick up Mya.
She is a beautiful G.S.P,has taken over our house,our lives,loves people,has a wonderful personality & gets along very well with other dogs,Bonnie says she is priceless.At 4 months she was showing lots of interest in birds & trying to put the sneak on squirrels,doves & all manner of critters,now at 7 months she is pointing grouse.We believe Mya will grow into a good bird dog,hopefully as great as Raisin,she has already settled into being a wonderful house pet & she cetainly lives up to everything that Rob & Judy claim in their ads.about their dogs being well adjusted.
