About Best Gun Dogs
Best Gun Dogs is a full time training and breeding facility located in southern Utah. We are a dedicated kennel that's primary focus is to produce premium gun dogs through genetics and training. We take great pride in what we do and getting there with as minimal pressure on the dog as possible. We are devoted to the pointing dog breeds with our main focus on the German Shorthaired Pointer. We make our selections based on several criteria including: outstanding noses, great conformation, superior intelligence, and pleasing dispositions. We love the sport of hunting, especially over good bird dogs. With our competitive nature we also like to train our dogs to compete at AKC Hunt Tests, Field Trials, & NSTRA. Most important is producing or finding a dog that will not only perform in the field but also be a companion to your home.
DOB 12/07/2007 Pedigree Luke Lacie Lacie has been a surprise from day one. She is one of our female German Shorthaired Pointers. Lacie is full of stlye and class. She is one of the dogs that always turns clients heads when we go to the field. She not only looks good but can hunt with the best of them. She has never been formally whoa trained yet would hold her points until the gun was fired she has done this all naturally from day one. Lacie has that no give up attitude and would hunt all day every day if you would allow her to. Once your back at the truck she knows how to turn it off and be your companion. We love her natural abilities and were excited to see how she does pheasant hunting this next year. She had such a great year in South Dakota this year.

First of all I would like to thank you for an amazing puppy, Dixie, we got her out of the vig and sadie litter. She is an extremely smart and obedient puppy. My one year old girl just loves to grab and pull eat her hide up, and Dixie just lays there and takes it. She is now about 5 months old and is retrieving to hand every time she stays like a champ and kennels very well. I am very excited about her.
Submitted by: Beth Jackson on Dec 21, 2013We cannot say enough good things about Jared and the GSP we purchased from him, Ace. My husband wanted a started dog, yet one that would do well with our young child and two other dogs. Jared told us about Ace in detail by phone. We never went to visit Ace in Utah. Jared shipped him to us by plane per our request. We have had Ace for about a year and a half now and he is everything Jared described. He has a gentle, calm personality at home, yet he loves to work when he is in the field. We receive many positive comments about him.

Submitted by: Chuck Hopkins on Apr 02, 2012Molly has found a great new home with Chuck H in Canada. Chuck has been very happy with Molly in the home and in the field. She has a great nose with lots of style. She is getting along well with the other dogs. Chuck will hunt her extensively this coming fall. It’s always rewarding when you can place a dog in a great home.

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with “Odie”. He is everything you said. I’ve had the opportunity to take him hunting twice and he impressed everyone. The first time he had only been here for four days and we killed ten of the eleven quail put out for us. He was FANTASTIC. I can’t tell you how much fun I had. I was a little worried about purchasing a dog in Utah, when I live in Virginia – sight unseen; but you are a man of your word – he’s a wonderful dog and companion. I’ve enjoyed working with you and will try to send business your way
Thank you, David

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy I am with my new dog Scout from Best Gun Dogs. Scout is currently about 9-month-old and has exceeded my expectations (and my skeptical wife). Already Scout has been an excellent hunting companion, thanks to the great bird training he received earlier this fall. To date he has successfully hunted pheasants, chukars, hungarian partridge and ducks (all WILD birds I might add). The GSP is truly the ultimate versatile breed! I attribute his success to a solid introduction to birds and a natural genetic drive to hunt. I am excited to see him improve his skills as he matures. My wife was very apprehensive about getting a typically wild dog to be around the house, but Scout has proven her wrong. He is a very good dog at home and is well socialized and behaved with all the neighbors pets and little children. I look forward to him returning to Best Gun Dogs this spring for additional training!
Submitted by: Lise Hewitt on Apr 02, 2012Lise Hewitt from Washington purchased a solid liver German Shorthair puppy from us earlier this year. Lise heard about a contest for the front cover of City Dog in Washington state. They decided to enter. Their little pup placed in the top two of forty dogs and was voted to make the Christmas cover. We are so proud of him. What a great looking dog!
Submitted by: Mike Kantor on Apr 02, 2012Dear Jared,
Well i have wanted to write to you since 7-14-2011 (the day i picked the puppy up
at the Airport) so here goes my comments and observations.
I have been a breeder of Labrador Retrievers for the last 25 or so years and about 10
years ago i decided that Labs are great Duck and Goose dogs but when it comes to hunting Quail,,Pheasants and Woodcock their noses are not as refined as “Bird Dog’s ”
I read as many books as i could on picking out Bird Dogs and their training.
Everything pointed to the German Short Haired Pointers ,so i looked at as many litters as i could and all their
I picked out a puppy that had as many Field Champions in the line as i could find locally only about 5 total champions.
God smiled on me as the puppy was a great dog with great inborn talents and although i have trained many Labs this was the first attempt i have ever experienced with bird dogs.
Molly was a great dog with a great nose and a extreme desire to hunt ,she would have been a Field Champion if i had entered her and
still be out in the field if it wasn’t for Lyme’s Disease with a touch of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever .
I lost her within a few years after being treated and after hunting birds with Labs for a while ,I again realized i needed to get another “Bird Dog”
My search started the end of May this year. I looked for a new puppy at the local newspapers and magazines . I talked to my friends and others at my Gun Club .
I wanted a dog with all the abilities that Molly had ,but i couldn’t find any blood lines that came close to hers’
I decided to look at the larger picture the Internet.
My wife told me that you should get the best puppy you can find and don’t worry about the cost of shipping the dog ,so that was what i decided to do.
I found many ,many puppies for sale, some very cheap ,but nothing compared to the blood line that you ,had for sale.
When i reviewed your puppy’s blood line and talked with you in detail, i was convinced that i wanted one on your dogs.
The puppy was, and is all that you and your pictures represented and i am totally
happy with this little girl, we call “Utah Nakota”
She has only been with us for 12 days and she is sitting and coming back on voice commands and will find any hidden Quail wing within a short distance. She is not pointing yet but with live birds she may start soon , I’m sure.
The pictures you sent did not do her justice as she is truly, perfect in build and temperament. Her colors are as pretty and striking as you could paint
with a canvas .
Between the fees for the Vet. Certificate, Shots, Airfare and Crate, I spent more then i wanted to but ,i would do it again in a heart bet.
The old expression that “You only get what you pay for” defiantly applies here .
If i evaluated what the cost were to buy “Utah Nakota” and what kind of puppy i received I would say that i got the better of the deal.
At this point, I would pay more then i did knowing what i have in “Utah Nakota”
I know that it is possible that she could develop into a complete flop, or my training could be a cause ,but i would “ bet the ranch ” against that happening.
The way i see her is that you made a big mistake getting rid of her , you should have kept her for yourself ,and i think that all the Quail,,Pheasants and Woodcock
in New Jersey and Pennsylvania better start hiding out now, because she’s coming to get them this fall.
I also want to take a minute and thank you ,for your involvement and your patients with me, taking so long to decide on one of your puppies.
I now understand why you picked “Bestgundogs” for your Web Sight it truly applies to you.
