I would like to thank Micah for one of the best little female Brittany pups I have ever had. We picked her up in September and has been a joy. Great health, extremely socialized and has already shown she is a eager learner and hunter. I hunt grouse in NC and have taken her to some of the places I usually hunt where she shows she has the genetics to be a real hunter as soon as she gets big enough. That is if we daughter, wife and admittedly myself don't spoil her too much.

In December 2012, we purchased a GSP from Micah. Our puppy, Orion, (from Ten Oaks Ramblin Jake and Walnut Ridges Homewrecker's litter in Oct. 2012), recently took a Prize 3 (104 points out of a possible 112) in the NAVHDA's Natural Ability Test. Orion received Prize 1 points in all areas except for tracking, which he received a 1 out of 4 points. We believe he is also a Prize 1 dog in this area. However, during the tracking phase, the conditions were less than desirable. The track was done in a fresh cut hay field, the soil was dry and sandy. After the test began, Orion tracked the pheasant approximately 6 feet, then broke track and began to search. At this point, we realized that we were downwind from the stocking truck. Orion followed scent up to the truck. We recalled him and he immediately picked up the track again on his own. When he reestablished track he followed it for approximately 10 feet and then began to search for the stocking truck again. We believe this low tracking score is due to judge and handler error for allowing the stocking truck to be where it was.

We have been told many times, and believe, that Orion is a top-shelf hunting dog with a cannon for a nose! We look forward to many enjoyable hunts and tests in the future. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a hunting dog to see what Walnut Ridge Kennels has available!

Lori's Handsome Boy, Orion's scores can be verified at NAVHDA.org once they are posted. His test date was 9/8/2013 at the Delaware Valley Chapter.

Sincerely,

Lori Williams and Steve Drescher

I traveled to Tennessee from Florida in September to look at a litter of puppies from Walnut Ridge Quail Farm and Kennel. I must say, I was quite impressed with Micah, he was knowledgable and down to earth. Micah guaranteed his puppies. I was sold, and purchased a GSP puppy from Micah. "Chase" our puppy has been such an exceptional dog. Chase is eager to find and eager to please. At 3 months old, Chase was already finding birds. At 6 months old he is now being professionally trained and has quite the knack and drive for pointing. Chase is lovable and a great addition to our family! Looking forward to having my little man back! He's such a handsome little fella!

Overall, I would highly recommend Walnut Ridge Quail Farm and Kennel. Great looking dogs that are well cared for.

Our 6 week old Brittany puppy is precious! She has a sweet temperment, beautiful coat, and is already showing signs of being easily trainable. She is very affectionate as well. She is a real GEM! Thanks to Micah for an easy and great experience getting a new puppy. If you need a great dog, give Micah a call! If we had a bigger yard, we would seriously be considering a second pup from this litter!

I purchased a yellow lab from Micha at Walnut Ridge Kennels. This is a top notch kennel and Micha is a super good guy.The pup was seven weeks old when i picked him up. The pup is super smart , friendly and everything Micha said he was. He is nine weeks now and already loving to retrieve on land and water and can also do blind retrieves. He is not gun shy and has not been from the first day i got him. I would definatly recomend walnut ridge if you are looking for a honest seller and a dependable dog.

We recently bought a GSP puppy from Micah, and his family, for our son's birthday present. The communication from them was great from the first email to the email after we took Gauge home. We took the puppy to our vet the day after we got him, and he got a perfect bill of health. We were very impressed with the health of all of the dogs at Walnut Ridge and recommend them for your next puppy/dog!

I purchased a GSP in December 2011 and he has been everything Micah has said. Jed points on his own and can retrieve on land as well as in the water with no training required. Micah and his family do an excellent job breeding hunting dogs and I highly recommend them.

In December of 2011, I purchased Sandy's Asia Broker from Micah. I am very pleased as to how Sandy performs in the field as well as the pen. She is a pet but when you drop the door on my dog box she is all business. I hunt only wild birds and Sandy found several covies this year. She is exactly what Micah said she was and I look forward to purchasing another dog from him.

I purchased a GSP puppy from Micah in December 2011. I had only saw a picture of her online and spoke with Micah over the phone before I picked her up. She was everything I had hoped for and more. Micah was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process and the vet said the pup(Maddie) was in perfect health. She has made a great family pet and is pointing naturally. I highly recommend buying a puppy from Micah and can't wait to get another one.

I purchased an 8 week old German Shorthaired Pointer from Micah in October of 2011. She is going to be a great gun dog, the vet said she was in perfect health, and Micah was extremely professional. The experience of purchasing a dog from Micah was excellent. I highly recommend him.

I have purchased 2 GSP from Micah and couldn't be happier with my investments. They both have tremendous drive and they love to work. Training them has been very easy and fun due to their intelligence, desire to please, and great work ethic. They will work as long you let them. They have been great additions to our family. Micah was so helpful and knowledgable in both of my purchases and I'm very thankful that I purchased such amazing dogs from a breeder that loves taking pleasure breeding quality pups. I would recommend anyone to purchase a pup from Micah. I've purchased 2 and when it's time for the #3 I'll be back visiting the Walnut Ridge Quail Farm and Kennel to pick up my next pup.

Thanks,

I purchased a GSP puppy from Micah in April of 2010,from only a picture and talking to Micah over the phone and the GSP was everything Micah said the dog would be. He listens very well and was pointing at 4 months old. At 6 months old I took my GSP pup to Michigan and he was finding and holding points on grouse. I would buy another dog from Micah anyday and would recommend him as a breeder

Thanks

I purchased a GSP from Micah and during the process we both encountered schedule conflicts, but Micah was great to work with and did everything possible to work with my schedule. My dog Kane did everything Micah said he would and so far he has been great to work with and easy to train. I will definetly buy another dog from Micah.

Update on Sammy the Britt Spaniel pup -

This is a great dog!!! He is pointing and flushing and I do not even know how to train him. I am sure everyone loves their first Brittany, but this dog is amazing.

Sammy is house trained (mostly) and is very attentive/receptive to training. He'll sit, high five, and lay down on command - outstanding for a 16 week old pup.

I purchased a liver and white brittany from Micah 4 weeks ago and could not be happier. She was crate trained in just a few days and is almost completely house broken at 12 weeks. She has been pointing at everything that moves in our yard for the last couple of weeks. Micah was a real pleasure to deal with and I will purchase from him again.

We purchased an orange and white male Brittany puppy from the Landers family two weeks ago. We couldn't be happier with our purchase! We took him to the vet the day after he was purchased, and the vet gave him an excellent bill of health. The vet was very impressed with the high quality of the vaccine that he had already received from the Landers family. The puppy is now 9 weeks ago, and he is crate trained and almost house trained. He is absolutely wonderful with our 2 year old niece! He likes to play rough with us, but he is so calm and sweet with her. We highly recommend the Landers family and their puppys!

We purchased a Brittany spaniel from the Landers a week ago. We noticed immediately the fine breeding, as our pup was "pointing" at every grasshopper and bug he found in the yard.

Micah is quick recognize that the "Bullet" lineage is great, but he has the right mix of other great lineages to ensure that his pups are exceptionally well rounded; which our Vet commented on as he professed our pup to be in perfect health. The Landers have a family breeding operation. Our family dog was extremely socialized and well worth the 3.5 hour drive from North Atlanta - great breeder, great people and a great dog.

Words cannot express how thankful we are for our puppy we bought from Micah and his family. We even named him Lander after the Landers family. :)

Lander is full of energy but also has a sweet side. He has even ran with my mom in two 5Ks this spring. In the most recent race, the organizers even gave him a medallion! :)

Our lives have not been the same since Lander came to live with us...in a good way, though! We wouldn't trade him for the world!

I just recently purchased a beautiful, healthy yellow lab pup from Micah. The pup was given a clean bill of health from the Vet just a few days after bringing him home. He is smart and fun to have around. I would highly recommend buying your next dog at Walnut Ridge from Micah Landers. Micah is a quality breeder and has been a pleasure to do business with. He was very accommodating and made getting the pup very easy.

When a man loses his two Brittanys to unforseen circumstances it can be a blow that would cripple the strongest individual. With a heavy heart and wounded spirit I contacted Micah at the end of the summer 2009 about a young 6 month old pup he was adverstising. I loaded my fiance in the truck and we headed to Pulaski to pick up a spunky oranage and white Brittany that I dubbed Baxter Bobwhite. Baxter has matured into a beautiful young fellow and is now pointing birds like a champ. He will stop on a dime at the command of "whoa" is unboubtedly the quickest learner I have ever experienced. This dog was a true blessing for me and has revitalized my passion for bird hunting. Micah was very straight forward and encouraging about this young pup. Everything he said has held true. Baxter has progressed ahead of my schedule. Working a full time job and training a bird dog is quite the demanding task so he has learned a lot on his own. We love Baxter dearly and are so glad he is a part of our family. It has taken me awhile to post on here due to relocation and work but I want you to know there is no better place to find your companion than Walnut Ridge Kennel. Thanks Micah for uniting me with Baxter

After deciding to purchase a GSP puppy for our family pet and a hunting companion, I started searching websites and local breeders for info and pedigrees. After seeing pictures of Mr. Micah Landers dogs and puppies at Walnut Ridge, I gave him a call and talked about some alternatives for a puppy. He was very informative and went out of his way to be helpful. I was impressed enough after a few calls and e-mails to comit to buying a pup 6 hrs. from home, and I am not very easily impressed for those that know me. On 11-21-09 we made the trip fom Bedford, IN to TN to pick out a puppy for our kids Xmas present. Upon arrival there was an 8 week old female still available from the thanksgiving litter that we had been keeping tabs on via the website. I had my mind set on a solid liver head with a few spots and a lot of ticking,and she had it all. But, we were wanting to wait for the xmas litter. My wife who wasn't keen on the idea of a dog at all got to meet this puppy first and it was love at first site for both of us. After loving up to my wife she went straight to some brush nose first then looked back as if to say are you coming and let's go hunt to me, that was all it took. Micah was very friendly and welcoming. All of his dogs were beautiful, healthy and well kept. Being a lifelong English setter owner, I am now proud to say that GSP's and Walnut Ridge has won me over. Thunder Rose has been a blessing to our family as a pet and will hopefully be an even better hunting dog in time. To you Micah, all we can say is thank you for all your help and for giving us the opportunity to own Thunder Rose. To anyone considering buying a GSP, I highly recommend Walnut Ridge, as I will use Micah for all of my future purchases. Thanks again!!!

Micah was great to work with, he saved me two hours of driving time by meeting me at his parents. His parents were super nice and the pup is great. Very smart girl, she retrieves a tennis ball at six week and is very intelligent and playful. Thanks so much Micah.

I looked at a number of breeders across the U.S. and talked to some of the most well know breeders in my hunt for the perfect dog. I looked for around 6 weeks to find a dog that would fit in our family as well as the needs of the family. One of the issues I was having was getting people to return calls, communicate through e-mail, explain the history of the pedigrees for the parents, and send pictures. Micah was the most helpful and knowledgeable about the family that I spoke to. He answered all of my questions and returned calls when he said he would. Micah was very honest about the complete process and left nothing unanswered. He can be trusted completely in helping you find a dog.

The puppy we selected was just over 6 weeks old; he was almost potty trained when we picked him up. He is also already starting to point, which is a sign of both the bloodline and breeding. He has a wonderful disposition and is a great addition to our family. Please feel free to contact me if you need a reference on Micah and the services he offers. You will not be let down with your new pet or the way he conducts business.

In December 2008 I purchased a Chocolate Lab puppy from Micah. Micahs wife met me about halfway so I only had to drive an hour and a half instead of three! Micah was so easy to deal with and called me along the way to let me know exactly what was going on. They are a very nice family and I know where I will be going to buy my next Chocolate Lab. I wouldnt buy from anyone else. My puppy is so smart. He knew just what to do the first time he was thrown a duck. Even though he is still a puppy he is not wild, he minds very well! I cant wait to buy another one!

Recon is my gsp pup i bought from Micah back in Oct of 08. He's now 5 months old and THE smartest dog i have ever had the pleasure of training. Actually, I can't even say that. He pretty much new exatly what he was put on this earth for. I just refined him a little. The funny thing is that he is the first gsp I know of who listens to every command in the field without an electric collar on.He never takes off on me and that's unheard of. When I take friends out in the field with us they can't believe he's as good as he is at his age. He's 5 months and has his whoa command and directional commands down to a tee. I've had people offer me thousands for him. I tell them I wouldn't sell him for a million. Micah, I can't thank you enough. I wish I could show you sometime what kind of a dog you brought into this world.

I just purchased a 10 week old liver & white female Brittany (Lady) from Micah. She is very smart. She is already sitting and coming when called. She is very social and gets along great with my 1 year old male Brittany (they love playing tug of war, chase and wrestling). Micah was wonderful to work with. I live 9 hours from Pulaski but he arranged for me to pick her up 3 hours closer. It was well worth the drive for my sweet Lady.

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you my recent experience with Walnut Ridge Kennels. I recently purchased a male Brittany from Walnut Ridge and the experience was positive in every way. Micah and his entire family were extremely helpful to my son and I as we picked out our latest addition to the family. Rocket is a seven week old liver and white Brittany who has moved right in and made himself a home. Micah is definately the type of person that I enjoy doing business with, and will go to him in the future, as well as reccomend him to anyone else.

We are very pleased with the Brittany that we purchased from Micah. She(Jenny) started pointing right away, (using a grouse wing/fishing line). We took her out to an area where we new some quail were and she easily picked up on their scent. She is going to be a great hunter. Not to mention a real sweetheart. Micah was great, he is a very honest and trustworthy person.

Just picked up Chief (16 weeks old) from Walnut Ridge Kennel and couldn't be more satisfied with him. He is lovable, affectionate and loves to play fetch, he will bring it back to your feet wanting more every time. Micah was a joy to talk with over the phone, and even offered to shorten my drive and meet me somewhere. When we pulled up in the drive the whole family was out to greet us with Chief playing in the barnyard. It was a pleasure doing buisness with him and I would recommend the Landers family to anyone who is looking for a top notch birddog. Great experience for this first time gun dog owner.

I purchased a GSP from Micah in the Spring, and he has been nothing but a pleasure to own and work with. I had no experience with this breed but had heard their high activity level was matched only by their high intelligence. I AGREE. Micah gave me a few hints on training but Coach seems to have done most of it on his own. Go to the brag board to see Coach at 16 weeks pointing a quail.

I just recently purchased a beautiful, healthy 8 week old German short hair pointer pup from Walnut Ridge. I want to let you know how great I was treated by Micah. He is an extremely good and honest person to buy a dog from. He always had time to call, and answer my calls about anything. This was the first registered dog I have owned, and Micah made me feel very comfortable when I asked questions. If you are looking for a specific breed of dog that the Landers family raises, you should, without a doubt buy from them. Our Vet could not stop talking about how healthy and pretty our pup was during her check up. My kids love the new puppy. Rest assured I'll be coming back to Walnut Ridge and the Landers family when I'm ready to purchase another GSP.
Thanks again!

Although I did not actually purchase a puppy from him, Micah was very upfront and polite from start to finish. I had put a deposit down on a pup and he was quick to send me updates and new pictures which I loved. As it got closer to time he realized that the pup might not be the right fit for me so he called me right away and asked if I would like a refund of my deposit, I accepted and he sent my deposit back the very next day and I felt that I should share how pleasant my experience was.

My experience with Micah could not have been any easier. He handled his business by demonstrating old-fashioned values, a handshake and a smile, and owned up to every thing he told me. I bought a GSP at 7 wks and was immediately impressed. He is highly intelligent with superb natural instincts. On top of that he is easily trainable and well mannered. My veterinarian spoke very highly of the breeder and stated that he "really knew what he was doing." If your looking for a high-end quality GSP, look no further than Walnut Ridge Quail Farm and Kennel!
