About Pine Valley Gundogs

Home of Pine Valley Beagles and Pine Valley German Shorthaired Pointers, AKC CAR microchipping, training pens, affordable collars & leads, Tri-tronics training collars and more. We are a licensed commercial kennel in Lapeer County, Michigan and also an NKC licensed kennel. We started with our first German Shorthaired Pointer back in 1980 and our first pair of beagles in 1983. Since then we have grown to more than two dozen adult hunting dogs.

Our GSPs are bred for their hunting abilities. They are not show dogs. Naturally, confirmation is also an important factor to responsible breeding, but my GSPs must have both! "All show and no go" doesn't cut it around this kennel! All of our GSPs used for breeding and stud are OFA certified to be sure that your GSP puppy will not suffer from any genetic medical problems, such as hip dysplasia. Our goal here at Pine Valley Gundogs is to offer you a healthy puppy that you can mold into your hunting companion for many years to come.

Our beagles are hard hitting gundogs that have lots of speed and drive, bred and trained to find the rabbits for you. No more kicking brush piles, that job belongs to the beagles! If you want a good jump dog that hunts for you, you've come to the right kennel. Follow us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pine-Valley-Gundogs/218029064912196

You know I always rave about my Beagle "Laney" that I got from you almost two years ago. And normally it's about her hunting ability. (Which is Amazing), but I also wanted to let you know that a few weeks back my girlfriend moved in with Laney and I, and she has a special needs daughter who is three. In the process of acclimating Laney with all the new medical equipment and in home nursing and ultimately chaos around the house, everyone has noticed something really incredible about her. She has taken over as the #1 caretaker and watches over the 3 year old like a pro. She makes sure her first stop in the morning is to check on her, and even snuggles up next to her throughout the day just to make sure she is ok. She is as gentle as can be, and if any of the medical equipment sounds an alarm, she is first in line to make sure everything is ok.

I am sure you hear about your dogs all the time, but we really wanted to let you know that Laney is the best of the best. I have had multiple dogs my entire life (34 years) and can say I have been really lucky to have good hunters, and companions...and I have always said I would never say one is better than the next. But when it comes to a Pine Valley dog, there is just something a little extra special about her. Words can't even begin to express my gratitude for the ability to have Laney as part of my family.

Sincerely

I have a female GSP named Angel who was from the Pine Valley Duke/Autumn litter of March 2013. She is now almost 1 year old. I wanted to wait a while before reviewing Pine Valley to be able to give a review which will evaluate this pup over a long period of time, and especially through her puppy stage. Sometimes things don't show up or are seen during the initial several months of a dog's life.
That being said I don't think anything I say can speak highly enough of the quality of this dog. What a great combination of breeding that Duke and Autumn are in creating quality pups that are HIGHLY energetic (as GSP's are), intelligent, good natured, attentive, and easily trainable (with patience, of course, if you know the breed). I cannot speak to her hunting ability firsthand as I'm not a hunter. But I can say that she definitely exhibits all of the traits of what could be a very fine hunting dog. My plan for Angel is Dock Diving, which I believe she will excel at based on the training so far. Mike and Rosie are wonderful people who know what they're doing and are very knowledgeable and caring about their dogs and the breeding process. You won't find a nicer and more knowledgeable couple of people than Mike and Rose. Many thanks to you both for giving us a fine dog who we will get enjoyment out of for many years to come.

We picked up our GSP from Pine Valley Gun Dogs in the middle of September 2013, which makes her almost 7 months old. I located Mike on the AKC Breeder website. We were very torn between getting a Golden Retriever and a GSP. Neither my boyfriend nor I had ever had a GSP before, but we grew up with hunters/hunting dogs. What really helped us make our decision was Mike. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and honest. I had a great feeling about the kind of facility he ran, so we picked up our GSP just a few days after speaking in depth with him.

All that being said, we really cannot say enough great things about our GSP, “Luna”. She is our first “baby” together, and we couldn’t have picked a better dog. She has already started learning commands from basic training, and is very eager to please. She has a lot of energy (so, perfect for a hunting dog), but she also has a very sweet disposition that makes her a great housedog as well. And what a personality! We often take her to my parent’s house to play with their three Golden Retrievers (all bird dogs) and they get along great! We even took her to the barn where we keep my horse, and she had a blast. A great dog comes from great bloodlines, and Mike has done a terrific job with breeding GSPs. Whenever people say “I love your dog, where did you get her?”, I ALWAYS recommend Pine Valley Gun Dogs.

We are getting ready to send her to hunting camp at Hunter’s Creek in Metamora next week. We are thrilled to see what she will do, and we want to say thank you, Mike, for providing us with a great dog!

Mike has some very good german shorthairs, I bought Pepper about 18 months ago, had a litter of eight, just received a call from a trainer that was training one of Pepper's pups, she said "This is the nicest looking and smartest dogs I have ever trained. Mike has done a wonderful job. I just bought another one of his shorthairs 2 days ago, picking her up Monday 12-30-2013. Thanks again Mike Jack Shoemaker

My family and I had picked up our german shorthaired puppy from Pine Valley Gundogs at the end of August 2013. Mike Papiez was very informative and answered any questions we had. We picked out are puppy after the puppies were around 4 weeks old and it was a hard choice;they were all well tempered and good looking dogs (It was a long wait to get our puppy because you can't take the puppies home until they are around 8 weeks old.). These dogs have a strong desire for birds and hunting; this is probably due to a good pedigree and upbringing. I would recommend Pine Valley Gundogs to anyone who is looking for a good hunting companion.

I recently bought a puppy from Mike and Rosie. He is a male german shorthaired pointer. Not only is he a beautiful dog he is very smart. Through the buying process they were very informative, and knowledgeable. It's good to deal with someone you can trust, and contact if you have a concern. They have a lot of dogs and you can tell they are their family.

We met Mike at the Woods & Waters show in Imlay City. After talking with him for a few minutes we knew we wanted to get our GSP from him. That night we went to his home and met our new dog, Maddie Mae. Mike was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable with our purchase. We are very happy!!

My husband and I got two very smart, very cute Beagle pups from Mike and Rosie at Pine Valley Gun Dogs. We love them! Having two pups is LOTS of work, but worth it! Lola and Lando have great personalities and are catching on to training very quickly. Mike was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and he always returned my calls/messages promptly when I had questions. We would definitely get pups from them again when the time came!

my husband and I got our first GSP puppy (from Autumn and Dukes litter). We were in contact with Mike when we decided we would like one of these puppies. Mike is very informative on the process and always would keep up updated on when we would get to find out which one was ours, when we could pick the pup up, ect. When we picked her up Mike and Rosie answered any questions we had about our new puppy and was very informative on the process of bringing her home. Our Lucy was pointing at 7 weeks and is doing great (shes about 3 months old now). We are very confident that she will be a great hunter! So far we are very pleased with our decision on getting our puppy from Mike and Rosie. Our little Lucy is a great pup! Our daughter is a year and half and the puppy is amazing with her! I have never seen a puppy be so gentle with a toddler! Over all we are very happy with our decision on getting a GSP puppy from Pine Valley Gundogs!

We picked up our 'Ruger' a German Shorthaired Pointer from Mike at Pine Valley, on Mother's Day. I am very impressed with Mike's willingness to accommodate us in picking up our pup. Mike was very informative and helpful. 'Ruger' receives comments on his looks and his behavior every time we are out walking. I have and will continue to refer Pine Valley Gundogs to anyone interested in a quality German Shorthaired Breeder. We just love our Pine Valley Ruger!
