It has been two years since my wife and I purchased our beautiful English Setter, Kimber Iza Pistol and we are still as excited and happy about this dog as we were the first day. Kimber is growing up to be a wonderful, loving dog. She is pointing birds well and is progressing into everything I desired in a bird dog. I am still fighting with my wife over whether to get another puppy from Team Duke but I have had no luck in spite of all of the pleading and "doggie kisses" from Kimber. Thanks,Jim. You've made us one happy family.

What can you say about the best. Three weeks ago we sought to fill the hole left by the death of our 13 year old setter. I spoke with Jim about our loss and he was so very understanding that I knew that he would help us find the perfect match. I trusted him more than any of the other breeders I had spoken with and we went to see his 11 month old Olivia the next day. She stole our hearts and continues to do so as I write this. She is so very smart, easy of personality and willing to please. We have had English Setters for 48 years and she stands out as one so very very special. I credit Jim and Lori for this. They breed great pups with spirit and a willingness to please. Jim made it clear that he would be a resource for us as his responsibility was to the pup to make sure she had a good home. That is the best endorsement I could give, a breeder that produces great dogs and considers them first. Thank you so much for this wonderful girl. I would never look anywhere else for they breed the best Setters anywhere. What a Brag dog. She shines, our Olivia.

A note to the public. This breeder is awesome. Jim and I connected, I was interested in a companion level. Jim met with me, I'm permanently disabled from a fall in '98. I have to use a cane to get around, he brought a one year old dog named "Johnny". I did try and Johnny was very responsive. He made every attempt ("Johnny" to heal to my right; unfortunately, I could tell, that the situation was not a fair situation to the dog. Jim, the owner, went out of his way, to help, encourage and ultimately accept and listen. He too recognized that despite all best efforts, "Johnny" would be better off elsewhere. I have been around dogs all of my life and used to work rescue and foster homes for English Bulldogs and Boxers. I have met many so called "caring breeders", this one is the real deal and my hat is off to the kindness and understanding of Jim and "Tim Duke". You're a credit to the bread and genuine human beings.

In somewhat of an unorthodox post, I would like comment on my personal interaction with both Jim and his amazing dogs. Yesterday my wife and I purchased a beautiful Setter from Jim for our four year old son. Our family had been discussing adding a forth member and hunting companion for some time now. After visiting with numerous breeders, we last met with Jim. My wife, son and I were blown away with the pup Mr. Jim showed us. Our family decided to take the puppy home and the experience was better than we hoped. After a quiet ride home, little Jackson (the new puppy) was very quick to adjust to his new surroundings. Jackson was already crate trained. Jackson never once jumped up on my 4 year old son. Jackson was walking on a leash and heeling within 24 hours. And unbelievably, Jackson was also showing signs of potty training after one day. And here comes the hard part: Despite having grown up with hunting dogs (outside dogs), it turns out that I was (unaware) allergic to Jackson. Heartbroken, our family reached out to Jim the next day explaining our situation. Jim quite literally welcomed our family with open arms and welcomed Jackson back. As a professional, I can tell you coming across this level of professionalism is a rarity. We are sad things didn't work out with Jackson, but our family felt like we discovered a new friend with Jim and his. If you are considering adding a quality bird dog to your family, do yourself a favor. Talk to Jim, see what he has to offer, and don't think twice, and don't look back. Listen to what he has to say and trust what he tells you. You will not be disappointed.

Hi Jim -

I'm sure Tony will send you a note too...

His name is RZR Upland Ranger. He's doing great!! Tony will have more detail on the hunting piece, but as an all around house dog he's been wonderful.

One interesting thing is that he LOVES to retrieve and will swim out for balls and sticks - we could probably use him to duck hunt. ;0)

I'm going to head out occasionally with the hunters and take some photos of the dogs, we will be sure to send them over.

Best of luck with the new breeding your looking at!

Best -

Hey there Jim,

Sorry – it took me a week to sit down in front of the computer – but here are a couple of pics of Niery. Most often we are on bikes and so taking photos doesn’t happen as often as I'd wish.

The first two pics are from a trip a couple of weeks back to a trail in the Olympics. Riding the ferry is particularly attractive to him – as it is a moving platform that attracts birds. 30 mins of uninterrupted pointing action. He has now travelled all the ferries from Seattle to the Powell River up in BC and run most of the trails in between. Amazing trail dog.

The other photo is from the Dungeness river valley – a 6 mile downhill we did last spring. He has incredible route finding skills and can link up sections of the valley without ever having been there before, plus he does at least 2x the distance we do on account of quartering the hillside. You'll notice he has a rock in his mouth. I normally replace that with a stick – but he needs to carry something. In summer I hefted a tree limb that had fallen over the path over the edge of Tiger mountain. I took off, but then had to wait for Niery who has recovered the tree limb and was dragging it down the trail. In two months Tiger mountain opens again and he returns to two guaranteed BIG runs a week on top of his usual 3 miles/day.

As you can guess he is doing really well here – I couldn’t imagine the family without him.

Hope all is good with you

My best wishes, Mathew

Jim & I were hunting together for the first time, along with my friend, Paul. The second day, Jim came up lame about half way through the afternoon. He told us to just keep going. I was concerned about handling Duke, but Jim said he’d be fine . . . fine???

What happened in the next two hours was six birds, all pointed, none bumped by Duke, all one shot dead birds, and all retrieved to hand by a dog I’d never met until the day before (and he wasn't even wearing an e-collar).

I now own a Duke brag dog. Now over two years of age, Carl is part of my family and is one my daughter's best friends.

I know that your pup by Duke will be the same.

I was privileged to be Duke's first trainer, watching him handle everything in stride. I told Jim I thought he was breeding quality and Jim took his time deciding to breed him. He found bitches that have put some wonderful dogs on the ground.

I have worked eight of Duke's pups at my summer camp in Washington state. Each and every one of them have been sensible, trainable, talented and wonderful representatives of the breed.

I'll say it again - you just couldn't go wrong with a pup by Duke.

Congratulations Jim - your friend Dan.

Here are some more pictures of Cedar. Just an FYI, she's absolutely fantastic. Elise and I can't imagine our life without her. She has to be the smartest dog ever. At 11 weeks, I can't believe she's about to hit the 3 month mark. She now, sit's, shakes, lay downs, leave it, and speak all on command. She's also a weekend warrior, she loves the hikes and camping get-aways. Believe or not, she is not afraid of rivers, she does not mind getting dirty, and trekking on the trails. Let's just say, she's the perfect dog for us. Oh, and walks, excellent leash walker, however, she's a better off leash walker. Checks up on us, wont cross the street, or hurdle large tree longs, rivers, forts, camp-grounds, with out us. When I get home from works, she runs to me and licks the hell out of me. Super loving, we can't be happier. thanks"

Our pup Ranger is 13 weeks and is an AMAZING dog. He already heels, sits, retrieves, comes, etc. Ranger shows the natural instinct of a pointing setter and has exhibited those traits from 6 weeks of age. We were looking for a nice "house" dog as well as a hunter and couldn't have gotten a better dog. We can't wait to get him into the field and are looking for many years of great hunting and friendship.

Jim is a great breeder, he starts the dog out with the right attitude from the start. Ranger was crate trained when we got him and the overall experience made the transition bringing him home very easy.

Thanks Team Duke!!
Megan and Tony
