Deadwater Gun Dogs is in Northern NH. we breed our English Setter guide dogs once a year ( to keep the ball rolling so to speak ) we are a guide business " Deadwater Adventures" we generally keep one of the pups retire our oldest to the house and offer the rest of the pups for sale. These dogs have some of the best bloodlines in the country on grouse and woodcock. ( Ck out our pedigree's) We spent a lot of time scoping out Champion field trial blood to put our line of Deadwater Setters together, since we are a guide business it's important for us to make our guest's happy. It was also important that our dogs have great dispositions around adults and children, they love to play but when the guns and bells come out and the tailgate drops it's down to business.

My wife and I have two wonderful dogs from Deadwater Gun Dogs. Kelsey will be 4 years old in March and he is a tremendous hunting companion. Molly is almost 4 months old and a terrific pup. Not only are both dogs beautiful but they are extremely smart and were very easy to house train.
They are very well-socialized which demonstrates just how much personal attention Scott has given them from the time they were born.
We would, and do, recommend Deadwater Gun Dogs to anyone seeking an excellent pup.

This tesimonial was posted to Deadwater Adventures facebook by Jamie Dunn of Connecticut:I have one of Scott and Jason's dogs from a litter 3 years past. The dog is an incredible bird dog with tremendous naturbility. She was easy to train in that she just needed a little push. The rest fell right into place. She is also a superb family dog. Well behaved very affectionate and the kids love her.
I could not be happier.

This note was sent to us on facebook October 2013 by Jim Quinn We had a fantastic time Bird hunting with Jason, his dogs find birds when everybody else says there are none and his dogs are a pure joy to watch work birds. I recommend Deadwater Adventures without any reservations.

I mentioned earlier how impressed we were with our pup out of the Zee Hic litter on 2/18/2013. As if we weren't impressed enough, we decided to enter Dee Dee in a field trial. She took first place in Open Puppy against people that were professional dog trainers. We are so proud of her and wouldn't buy a Setter from anyone else but Scott and Deadwater!

This letter was sent by John Catin of So. Wisconsin who acquired a pup out of the Deadwater Hic X Deadwater Zee litter last year;
Scott, my dad and I picked up copper at Pine Island wildlife area Field trial grounds on Saturday. Copper spent 6 weeks with Greg in N.Dakota learning how to be a better bird dog, at the end of his training Greg was nice enough to bring him to the field trial which is nearer to my home. Greg took the time to show me what he learned and spent some time with me giving training tips and suggestions. I thought you would like to know how much Greg liked Copper out of Hic and ZeeZee. He told me what a pleasure it was to train Copper, how he loved to work and accepted correction without losing his desire or folding. He said Copper is amoung the top 5% of dogs he has trained, and he told me the breeder (that would be you)obviously really knew what he was doing. Greg went to compare him with a setter that was in the trailer. He felt the setter could win a national field trial. I don't know if i'll pursue any trials, but i do know i have a good hunting with speed, intensity and class, and I don't think i need a trainer to tell me what a great addition to the family I have in Copper.
Copper will be 2 in December. When i was looking for a puppy, i never dreamed i would drive more than a couple of hours, much less journey from southern Wisconsin to northern New Hampshire, but I'm glad i did. It was definitely worth the drive through the snowy mountains of New Hampshire and Maine back to the airport.
Thank you for a great dog!

We purchased a pup from the HicXZee litter 2/18/13. She is everything we expected her to be, she hunts hard and points harder. This pup has exceeded our expectations, Scott was great to work with and very accommodating. If you want an exceptional hunting partner, get your next Setter from Deadwater!

Scot could not have been more accommodating or pleasant. I bought a male puppy from him about 6 weeks ago. Jack has become part of the family and was pointing live birds by 12 weeks. My older dog is getting into him last season or two and I will definitely be contacting Scot in the future for another pup.
