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. 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

I purchased a red beagle from Mike last fall before gun season. I have owned a rabbit dog in some shape or form for most of my life. I own 5 beagles including Sparky my red dog from Mike. He was right around 2 years old when I purchased him as a started dog. He was a little rough around the edges when I got him ,meaning he needed some finishing touches to turn him into a productive member of my pack,I require my dogs to be very attentive to me when I take them afield. I am always sceptical when buying a new beagle because when you buy one that is around 2 he is usually for sale for a reason. I can say I am extremely impressed with sparky and after a season being gunned over and hunting with my dogs, I can say this red dog is the real deal. Being an avid beagler I know it can be hard to find a dog that can run a good track and has a strong desire to jump a rabbit. Or one that is a true jump dog. Sparky is just that and is starting to lead my pack at times. I run upper medium speed hounds with lots of foot that can flat out smoke a rabbit. So if you are considering a beagle from Mike ,buy with confidence you will not be disappointed. I plan on buying another one this year. I am from Ontario Canada and yes this dog will hunt in snow with the best of them,thanks again Mike keep up the good work

Mike,
I cant thank you enough for my new Beagle/Cooper. He just seven month old and after you started him I must say he is just outstanding. He is everything I expected and much much more. He is a great dog wonderful personality but most importantly he is an excellent hunter. I have told many of my hunting friends about you and your kennel in fact a very good friend of mine has just placed a deposit on one of you beagle puppies. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment with this great hunting dog! I'm sure I will be back for another dog in a few years! Thanks

We bought our female GSP pup fall 2015. The buying experience was great! Great facilities and knowledgeable owners. Moon dog is now an obedient and well tempered 7 month old pup. Great family dog that interacts well with other dogs and kids. Had her out in bird woods and on the pheasant farm several times. She is responding very well for a young dog. Formal bird training will start this spring/summer. Thanks Mike and Pine Valley.

First of all I just want to say what a great experience I had getting my first GSP pup from Mike and his wife at Pine Valley. They were my first choice after reading their reviews and after visiting their place and picking out my pup, I knew I had made the right decision on getting a puppy from them. They are true dog lovers and they treat every dog as family.

I chose a female liver roan from Autumn and Dukes litter in August of 2015, and she has been great she has all the common traits of a gsp. She has been very healthy and she had shown good hunting instincts at about 16 weeks when I started playing with her in the yard with bird wings. She is now 7-1/2 months and I have taken her to a pheasant hunting preserve a few times and she is coming along great she is pointing, and retrieving great. I am pretty confident that she is on her way to becoming a great hunting dog.
AS far as a family pet she has been great in that department as well. She has been very easy to train and loves to cudle. The only time I have any trouble with her is when I haven't taken her for a run (as she pulls me on roller blades) for an hour about every other day. If she doesn't get her exercise she can be a hand full, but if you've done any reading about gsp's you probably already know that.
Well I just want to wrap up in saying I had an excellent experience at pine valley, and I couldn't be more pleased with my little Busia. I hope this review will help you on your decision on getting a dog from Pine Valley Gundogs.

My experience with Mike at Pine Valley Gundogs was phenomenal! I'm a single guy and never owned a dog before. I've gotten into waterfowl and upland game hunting and wanted to get a dog that could do it all, so I came across the GSP breed. Living in Michigan, I searched for a few breeders and Mike was someone who I clicked with right away. First, Mike is very knowledgeable. When I shared with him what I was looking for in a dog, he gave me great feedback. He didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but was very upfront with a few of his concerns about me being a first time dog owner with a GSP. I know that could turn off a few people but I see it as true wisdom as Mike wants what is best for both owner and dog. This leads into Mike's compassion for his dogs. Their care and well being is always a top priority before and after picking up your pup. When I went to pick my pup up, Mike and his wife spent a few hours with me going over some of the essentials in dog training, care and just allowing time for my new pup and I spend together in a familiar setting to the pup. I greatly appreciated and valued the extra time and wisdom that was shared. Finally, Mike has helped me through a few health situations through email which was above and beyond what I expected. If you are looking for a dogbreeder that values integrity, wisdom, care and good business practices, Mike at Pine Valley Gundogs will suit you well.

We couldn't ask for a better 12 week old GSP pup. She was the last pup of the litter be we feel as if we got the pick of the litter. Her train ability is 120% she came to us well socialized, confidant, and well behaved. She points naturally, and instinctively backs our older Gsp. She has an amazing drive that is controllable. Overall we are so pleased with our new puppy, and have high hopes for what the future brings with her. I would not hesitate to recommend Pine Valley Gundogs.

We purchased our first German Shorthair Pointer, Greta, from Pine Valley Gundogs, she was 12 weeks when we brought her home. We've always had boxers prior to Greta. I have to say GSPs are wonderful dogs, they have awesome personalities. They get along easily with adults, kids and other dogs. I cannot say enough good things about Pine Valley. Mike and Rosie truly love all of their dogs. Greta was well socialized as well as up to date on veterinary care making the transition into our home an easy one. As a licensed Veterinary Technician I have purchased many dogs from breeders and I can easily say Pine Valley has been the best in all my years of dog ownership. I will look to purchase another dog from them when the time is right.
Greta is going to meet a trainer for field training this week. I am very excited to get her in the field hunting with our 10 year old son. It will be a special bond for both of them.

My girlfriend and I picked up Remington, our first GSP, from Pine Valley less than a week ago. Even after having him less than a week (at 8 weeks old), he is extremely intelligent, with some awesome natural ability showing already. I am very hopeful for his future not only as a hunting dog, but also as a great family dog!

So far, our experience has been spectacular! Mike and Rosie were extremely inviting when we picked up my pup, and have been incredibly supportive since we have picked him up. We have had a few questions which Mike answered very quickly to ease our minds. We have nothing but great things to say about Pine Valley - this is our first experience with a breeder, and Mike and Rosie have been amazing. If you are looking for a GSP or a Beagle, we would say look no further!

My 38 year old son bought a male GSP from PVG in August of 2014. We usually start bird hunting when the deer season here in Mich is done. In Feb of 2015 we took the 8 month pup out to hunt Chukars , he did well that day and showed all the instincts of a seasoned hunter when we put him on birds without the other dogs. In March we took him out to hunt with 2 other seasoned GSP's. The pup was incredible. He honored the other dogs points , never broke point once , he was all business and never started to play with the other dogs. He didn't just follow the other dogs , he hunted. We shot birds over the other dogs and the pup would retrieve the downed birds. This pup actually pointed 2 birds by himself , never broke point and when we knocked the birds down he would retrieve to hand. The other hunters that were with us were amazed how well a 9 month old pup worked with other dogs and handled himself in the field. Believe me I will be buying my next GSP from Mike at PVG. Can't wait to get back in the field with this pup......Thanks Mike
