We bought a GSP from Phillips Gun Dogs﻿ two months ago. The dog has been a great addition to our family giving my wife and I many countless hours of enjoyment. Chad Phillips﻿ has gone above and beyond in helping us with any questions we have had and helping us with his training. It is refreshing to have a breeder that cares about producing great family dogs as well as excellent hunting dogs.

When I started out looking for my GSP for my upland operation, I was quite picky. Chad and Julie and a pair of trained dogs that they were looking to place. I was visited them and Chad showed me Myles and Maycee on birds. I could tell that they were exactly what I was looking for. Since then I have purchased several other outstanding GSPs from them and all are top notch! Chad and Julie are great people and only raise the very best the breed has to offer. Chad is easily the best trainer I've been around and I don't hesitate to call on him for just about anything GSP related.

I would highly recommend Chad and Julie at Phillips’ Gun Dogs. We purchased our dog, Kate, in the Spring of 2012. Through the whole process Chad was always in contact with us. He was able to answer all the questions we had and is very trustworthy. We even visited his place first, and knew right away he knew what he was doing. You can tell that he and his family are passionate about their dogs and work hard to be an excellent breeder/trainer.
From when she was a pup, Kate was always interested in birds and had a natural talent. We worked with her ourselves and then took Kate up to Chad’s for some extra training which was very helpful. After training, she became more precise with her hunting skills. When she was 6 months old, she pointed a covey of quail and I was able to shoot three quail over her and then she retrieved them as well. We would highly recommend Phillips’ Gun Dogs to anyone that is looking for a good hunting dog or has a dog that needs some extra training. I am personally considering getting a second dog from Chad and Julie.

I took a Britney puppy to Chad this past summer and he gave back to me a good hunting dog a few weeks later. I would highly recommend Chad to anyone.

While searching the Internet and coming upon the Phillip’s Gun Dogs site, an impressive fact which stood out was the involvement of the whole family in the operation of the kennel. It was obvious too, that Chad cared for his dogs and puppies making them part of the family.
On July 23, 2012, Chad, Julie with two of their children brought an eight week old female from Jennie and Tucker to the airport to meet us. One of their children helped take care of the puppy, later named Katie, while Chad and I attended to the exchange formalities. Katie made the five hour flight to her new home in Tennessee like a real trooper. She slept much of the way and whimpered little. She has enjoyed a daily 90 minute run/hunt in the morning and at least a 2 hour run/hunt in the afternoon. She was intensely interested in birds from the beginning and flash pointed almost immediately. She was gradually introduced to gunfire very early and on her first introduction to field quail at six months showed no interest in the gunfire and locked down on her points. Like all GSP’s she is slow to mature and at nine months still frolics in her “puppy” activities. She thinks everybody she sees has come to see her and everybody has complimented on her good looks. She would always rather be outside exercising her prey drive but transitions to “inside” manners with little difficulty as long as she is allowed to experience her daily physical needs. She responds to the whistle and call, heels, whoa and retrieves but in the early stages. Katie’s natural instincts are a testament to her breeding. I’m glad I found Phillip’s Gun Dogs and will recommend them highly.

I contacted Chad about purchasing a GSP puppy last November, and while he didn't have any available, he did point me in the direction of a breeder he was familiar with, who he has gotten dogs from, and who he trains dogs for. Chad was more than helpful in finding me a great dog! I brought my puppy to Chad when he was 6 months old with very little training under his belt. Chad did an excellent job at gun and e-collar breaking my dog as well as getting him on lots of birds! Chad was great about keeping in contact while he had my dog and was very patient with my questions. When I picked my dog up from training, Chad was more than willing to take me out into the field to see what they had been working on and to make me feel comfortable working with my dog over the hunting season. I would certainly recommend Phillips Gun Dogs to others and I will be bringing mine back to Chad to keep him on birds during the off-season and to fine-tune different aspects of his training.

i bought a shorthair pup in 2012. she (lisa) is just a sweetheart and a very good hunter and retreiver even though she was only 5 months old when the hunting season started. after only 3 weeks of hunting, she was a better hunting dog than a lot of the adults dogs i have seen.
Lisa is easy to work with and not hyper-just like Chad said she would be. She found several wounded birds that older dogs missed in heavy cover because she has an excellent nose.
She points great, honors great, and retreives better than a lot of labs including geese. And lisa loves the water.
i think one reason she is such a great dog, besides the breeding, is that she had a ton of human interaction when she was a young puppy. The Phillips know how to breed and raise dogs. you will not be disappointed.

Chad took my rambunctious 2 year old Lab. and made a top notch pheasant and quail hunting machine. I am a very satisfied customer. Russel Bradley
