Want to list your puppies for sale? Post a classified today!

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.

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.

We purchased a 6 week old, male fox red lab on August 6th, 2017 from Circle R Kennel. We had an excellent experience working with breeder Brad Rainey.

Mr. Rainey was knowledgeable in answering questions, and gave us helpful advice. He took his time with our family, allowing us to meet the puppies and play with them to see which one we would like, which was a difficult choice because all of the puppies seemed well taken care of, very happy and playful. Mr. Rainey was not only helpful during our visit to his kennel, he was also helpful with a question that arose a few weeks later.

Mr. Rainey also introduced us to the litter's mom and dad! Both dogs seemed very happy with Mr. Rainey, which showed us the love and attention Mr. Rainey gives to his dogs.

It has been about a month since our puppy, Rusty, has joined our family. He is very healthy, very playful and friendly. He gets along great with the whole family which includes 3 kids and a 7 year old chocolate lab. The youngest of the kids (8 years old) just recently taught Rusty how to sit on command. He loves playing with the older dog, especially tug o' war. While the older dog exhibits a great amount of patience with the puppy, he has also accepted him into the family and seems to enjoy playing with him.

We highly recommend Brad Rainey's puppies. Thanks Brad!

We picked up our female Fox Red Labrador, Bailey, on Father's Day at 6 1/2 weeks old. Brad was very patient in answering all our questions. Our vet commented how clean and well cared for she was. Everyone who sees her says how pretty she is! She was potty trained by 11 weeks and is a typical playful puppy we love very much! I would recommend Circle R kennels for anyone looking for a new puppy.

We picked up our fox red lab almost three weeks ago. The Raineys are very knowledgeable and genuinely love their breed. Our puppy has been very docile and sociable. I wholeheartedly endorse the Circle R Kennel.

After unexpectedly having to put down both our labs in 2016 we felt a void in our hearts that we knew had to be filed with a new lab pup! We did some research and found Brad and I'am so glad we did! We picked up our fox red lab on August 5th! Brad was very friendly and has a true passion for what he does! Our girl Charlie is a great puppy and absolutely loves our 5 and 6 year old boys! They became best buds instantly! We are so happy to have found Brad and Circle R Kennels!

We picked up our beautiful Fox Red Lab puppy last week. We did a lot of research to find the right dog for us and Brad could not have been more helpful in answering our questions. He happily showed us his operation and we met "Nugget's" Mom and Dad. Brad loves what he does and it shows. We highly recommend Circle R Kennel to anyone looking for a Lab or GSH puppy!
