My wife and I acquired, our first English Setter, Casey, a grandson of Bruce Mountain Breeze, from Sheldon about 13+ years ago. Casey, now going on 14, has been a joy to own, to hunt, and to compete in the field. Casey is handsome, a true gentleman with all of the atributes that make a great bird dog and a top contender in the field.

Two of Casey's derby-age puppies, Enzo and Buckwheat are currently in Sheldon's training and conditioning for young dogs preparing for campaigning in 2013-14 American Field Trials.

Sheldon's years of experience and expert training methods and honest hard work are developing the puppies' natural hunting instinct, style and intensity, and athletic ability. Both puppies are on their way to becoming the classy and polished field trial and hunting dogs Sheldon Twer Kennels is known to produce.

I bought a very promising young bitch from Sheldon
at 6 mos of age. Having hunted over two previous pointers for many years where starting them was not a gun issue I stupidly gave little thought to gun fire.At a little over a year old her drive and pointing ability was breathtaking. Her first hunt and lock on point was just plain the best thing I ever expected. The bird flushed and she was on it until the shotgun went off, she hesitated and lost
interest in the bird. Soon after she went on hunting hard and the same thing happened. Buy the third bird she came to me as if she had done something wrong and quit hunting. After talking with Sheldon his first words were what did you do to prepare your dog? I felt terrible and followed his advice for some correction to no avail. I recently picked her up after a month plus stay at Twer kennels. My dog now takes the leash at a dead run towards the falling bird when the shot is fired. Never loosing her natural desire to be what she was bread for.We were never going to loose her as a family member but we have back a gun dog who will do what God intended for her. Thank you Sheldon Twer.

We have 2 english pointers from Twer Kennels.. Sophie is 4 1/2 and Annie has just turned 1. Both were purchased as puppies. Our dogs are outstanding hunters, companions and pets. The Twer dogs typically have an excellent nose, good temperment, and tremendous hunting desire. These are beautiful, quality dogs. Annie is currently participating in Sheldon's outstanding training program. Twer Kennels dogs are the best!

I first contacted Sheldon at Twer Kennels about 20 years ago. I needed my flushing dog trained and was very happy with the results.

Since then, I have bought two English Pointers from Sheldon. One dog was bought specifically for hunting and the other for Field Trial work. Both dogs performed excellently. My field trial dog was incredible. She adjusted easily between short range and long range work – winning the very first Walking Shooting Dog Championship that I entered her in.

Needless to say, I have continued to recommend Twer Kennels to both hunters and field trailers and they have been just as happy as I have been with the results.

I have acquired 2 english pointers as puppies from Twer Kennels. Both dogs have been excellent hunters, companions and pets . . . and they are stunningly beautiful too! What a nice bonus! I would not consider getting a dog or having a hunter trained anywhere else! Sheldon provides excellent training for all types of hunting dogs, even those needing retraining on some issues. I highly recommend Twer Kennels!

Sheldon Twer is in a class above the rest in dog training. Every dog that I have had any success with has been trained by him. Take a pup with talent to him, and he will make him a finished, polished contender. If you want to increase your odds, buy one of his well bred pointers.

I have known Sheldon Twer for quite sometime and have had him train numerous dogs for me. I find him to be professional, knowledgable, honest, hard working, and very focused on performing at the highest level. His kennel is clean, safe, and his staff takes incredible care of each and every dog. I do not own a dog in my kennel that has not passed through his evaluation program or his training program. You can consider yourself lucky if you acquire a dog from Sheldon Twer, you will not go wrong. As breeder Sheldon has a reputation of producing solid, smart, classy bird dogs that perform above your expectations.
