About CIRCLE R KENNEL

Our licensed kennel specializes in training pointing breeds but also work flushers for upland hunting. Dogs should be at least 10 months old. A two week evaluation will be done on your dog. If we feel that your dog is not progressing satisfactorily, the dog and remaining training fee will be returned to the owner. An up to date health certificate will be required. All dogs should receive vaccines at least 30 days prior to scheduled drop off date.

The owner will provide dog food. This is done to make sure dog has food that his system is accustomed to.

During a one month training period, your dog will be fully conditioned to a beeper collar, hand and whistle signal trained, worked with our finished dogs, and have birds shot down to them.

We train on over 300 acres of personal property and 150 acres of preserve property. All of this acreage is designated as state licensed hunting preserve property, so dogs can be trained and shot over year round. In addition, we have access to several ponds so your dogs can be exercised and worked in the water.

Need your dog conditioned? Our property has a one mile trail that your dog can be safely run/roaded on with our ATV's.

Circle R Kennel has 3-4 well bred, hard hunting G.S.P. males for breeding, and raise a couple of litters a year from our top females. Started and finished dogs also avaliable.

Limited heated boarding space (with or without field work), also avaliable. 4000 square foot fenced exercise area.

References avaliable upon request.

This is our first Red Fox Lab puppy from Brad and we cannot say anything but wonderful things about Brad and our puppy (Goose).

Goose at almost 7 months old is extremely smart and a strong swimmer. To say he loves the water is an understatement. On top of that, he is quick and eager to learn new things. He truly is our pride and joy.

Brad was extremely helpful during our puppy picking process. Very knowledgeable about the breed. Really hoping he breeds again this upcoming winter/spring, we would love to get a female.

I purchased GSP puppy from Brad in June and she's just been amazing. I currently have a 10 yr old GSP and she gets alone nicely with the puppy. Brad has been fantastic with answering all my questions before and after I purchased the pup. I would recommend anyone to him. I also look forward to possibly getting another pup from him n the future

Finally getting around to leaving my review here!!! We bought our GSP pup 4 years ago from Brad. Our 10 year old GSP had just passed, and even though we are not hunters- we loved this breed, and wanted another. I found Brad online, called him, and went out to check out the only pup he had left right then. A perfect match for us- a male, and all brown- which is just what we wanted!!! Brad was so nice- answered any questions we had- even after we bought him. He was full of helpful advice!! We’ve had Walli 4 years now, and I can honestly say he has the best temperament of any dog we have ever owned!! He is loving and friendly to everyone, and everyone wants to know what kind of dog he is, and where did we find him. I HIGHLY recommend Brad if you are looking for a top-notch GSP!!

We purchased a lab puppy from Brad on 4/9/18. Brad answered all my questions and showed me the parents of the puppy. Both he and his wife were friendly and passionate about the dogs!

The puppy (Jett) is now 13 weeks old. He was potty trained at 11 weeks. He is currently swimming, understands basic obedience commands and retrieving. Jett gets excited when he sees a gun and I look forward to introducing him to live birds later this summer!

Jett is a well bred, loving and intelligent dog! I would recommend Brad to anyone who want a good lab or German Shorthair puppy.

Brad is great to deal with!! Drove 7 ˝ hour to pick up a 10 month German shorthair pointer. She has a great personality, and is a natural with her hunting skills. Would definitely recommended Brad to anyone looking for a companion, and an amazing hunting partner. Thank you again Brad. We will be back when we are interested in another puppy.

We purchased our puppy at the end of July and I have waited until she has turned almost six months old to write this. I can't say enough good about Brad and his operation. He is knowledgeable, kind and ungodly good at what he does, it shows in his dogs. Our puppy is intelligent, easily trainable and she has the hunting ability built in. We were never going to have two dogs but after dealing with Brad and seeing how his dogs are we are planning for another. Thanks again Brad.

I recently purchased a started 17 month old female GSP (Bella) from Brad. Brad trained Bella at his kennel. Bella worked out Bella in the field for us at his facility. Bella performed exactly as Brad said she would perform. If Brad says a dog will perform in a specific way I believe you can take it to the bank. If you ask Brad a question about a dog you can believe his answer. Brad will not tell you a lie about what a bird dog can or can not do.

The short answer is that you can believe what Brad says about a bird dog. I would not hesitate to buy another bird dog from Circle R Kennel. John Van Dam

We recently picked up our new German shorthair pointer (named Speck) family member / hunting partner. Upon arriving Brad was very helpful with all my questions about his kennel the pups and training. Brad is highly knowledgeable and great to work with. His dogs even as pups listened amazingly to commands and were very well mannered. All his dogs had beautiful markings and were very healthy. During vet check the vet conveyed how healthy and we'll mannered as a pup our GSP is. I would recommend Brad and his kennel to anyone looking for their new family member and or hunting partner. Further Brad has great prices for his dogs he has high quality dogs well mannered and as a pup trained well. I will go back to Brad when it's time to add a new member to my family and hunting team.
