Young male and female on a wild bird hunt in KS, last wk of January. Both are very natural at the retrieve,hunting,great noses etc. The female in the pic is 6 mo old. The genetics that produced this pup, showing her natural ability including honoring in the field are just some of the traits that we strive for. This is my PROMISE to you, I will do my best to give you exactly what you deserve for your dollar. I DO NOT BREED ANY OTHER BREED therefore specializing in the GSP and producing the best is my #1 goal. I do however train about any pointing breed. I hope that you will take the opportunity to find out what I am talking about and why I try to produce Quality with and emphasis on style, natural ability with an never ending drive to please you in the field while also pleasing themselves finding birds then why not consider a Prince's Quality Gundog. Let's talk about testimonials. Testimonials are something that are given by an individual free of will hopefully giving other people insight on what one's merchandise or product is like. All testimonials are given when the pup or dog or training has been PROVEN!!! No testimonials stating that QUOTE (I had a great experience purchasing my pup or that I am a nice guy) are given until the pup has proven to be what I said it would be. That could be 5 mo of age taken bird hunting for the first time, 6 mo competing in events or what ever the case may be. I hope that what I tell you is nothing but the truth and what I sell you is even more than what I say it is. We ship anywhere in the US mostly by van which is much more humane and less stressful on your pup or dog. The van is climate controlled with 2 individuals on board. One driving while the other is always taking care of your pup. With this I give a GUARANTEE on health and hunting abiltiy. I encourage you to view the testimonials below by scrolling down and see the difference if the number of testimonials are more important or the number and the QUALITY is more important. Please visit my website to find out more about me and my kennel. Thank You very much for your support and kindness. Prince's Quality Gun Dogs!!

I am going to get right to the point. John Prince is an honest man who has a God given gift of being an excellent dog trainer. John's German Short hair Pointers are top notch.
Before buying my female pup from John I did a lot of research and narrowed it down to few breeders. I called John and visited with him about what I was looking for. I invited John to bring some of his dogs and come hunt with me on some of my farms. I was fortunate that he accepted while others used their "busy schedule" as an excuse not to accept. To me I want to see a breeder/trainer dogs work on the ground hunting wild birds. In this case it was quail and pheasant season. First thing I noticed when we started the hunt is how much John's dog's loved him and how well they handled. He put two of his young dogs on the ground and their performance was flawless. They did it all like you would expect. I was impressed!
So I bought Lucy from John in April of this year at 3+ months old simply based on his recommendation that he thinks she would be what I was looking for. I did very little training of my own on her other than the fetching and getting her used to gun sound. I took her back to John in in September for couple days of training as I thought she was not going to need much based on watching her in the yard and around the farm. In a day and half of John training her, Lucy was ready to go hunt wild birds. While I was at John's kennels I got to see how clean his kennels are and got to see many more of his dogs. They all have one thing in common, THE RIGHT BLOOD LINES!!!
I was fortunate that John invited me to join him on a trip to Montana to hunt sharp tail grouse and huns just couple of weeks ago. That was Lucy's first experience on grouse in the wide open. Now we are talking a pup still at 9 months old! Lucy did fantastic! Well beyond my expectations. She did a 300+ yard retrieve on a sharp tail grouse that was just amazing! Lucy is going to be the best gun dog I've ever owned. I also got to watch four more of John's dogs hunt and same thing, they are gun dogs anyone would be proud to own!

I took my 8mo old GSP to John for training and he really impressed! My dog was unsure about gunshots and he worked her through it. His approach was very common sense and he took his time with her. By the time she left, she didn't even notice the gun. She spent 7 weeks with John and is now collar conditioned, retrieves nearly without fail, whoa broke, slams to a point from an an all out sprint, returns when called (voice command or whistle) without fail and loads up without a fuss. He nearly had her retrieving in water by the time I picked her up...and she had never been in water deep enough to swim in before.
John told me upfront what I could expect from him and what he would be doing with her. He follows through, his kennels are clean and his dogs are all healthy. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a pup from John or take a dog to him for training. All around good experience. I'll be taking my dog back to to Prince's Quality Gun Dogs in the fall for some touch-up before an out-of-state trip later in the year.

I bought a GSP pup from John in june 2018. This pup has been hands down the best bird dog I have owned and I have had my fair share of dogs. My pup Cash just turned nine months old. I’ve been killing wild birds over him regularly this season. When people speak of natural ability John’s dogs have it. My experience has been excellent. Cash has not really had any formal training yet. Here’s the natural ability part that I mentioned earlier. He holds birds on his own and is retrieving to hand regularly. Last weekend I took cash out on a hunt by himself not expecting to move to many birds. Fortunately there was a lot of birds where I was at that I was unaware of. Nine coveys later his performance absolutely amazed me. Guys this is a nine month old dog performing like a two year old dog. If you are looking for true natural ability and a excellent hunting dog I highly suggest John Prince. You won’t be disappointed. I have high expectations for this dog. I will be buying a female pup from john once he has another litter.

First off I want to tell you thanks for everything you've done for me. I have just purchased Sam a gsp little over a year old. John sent me videos of this guy and any videos I wanted to see of him just for the fact that I could not get out to him with my busy schedule. He told me everything about him and never miss lead me. He has some great dogs. I took sam out yesterday for the first time. He is everything I wanted pluse some he did awsome 15 min in the field he pointed 3 wild pheasants. I can not wait to get this hunting season going it's going to be a fun one. Thanks again john

I figured I would wait a little bit to write this review until I had a thorough understanding of what this pup was going to be. I write this on 7/12/18 and the pup was born 3/22/18. Let’s call him 3.5 mos old right now.
Named Jagd (Pronounced “Jag”, German for “hunt”) after his uncanny resemblance to his sire, the following is a summary of what he has achieved at 3.5 mos old at the hands of an amateur trainer/owner with a full time 8-5 (or more) job just like everyone else:
He roads with the older dogs.
Does not whine, dig, or act out in the kennel.
Whoa’s on a dime.
Scent points, holds and stands walking birds.
Land and Water Retrieves
Recalls every time
Kennels both outside and in the dog box
No fears whatsoever of gun fire or anything else for that matter. I have yet to see his feelings hurt. As a 20# pup, he will run so hard in a milo field that his tongue will get raw.
Keep in mind this puppy is 112 days old. He has had a leash on him exactly 2 times. Once on a potty break on the 6 hr drive home on the side of the interstate and once at a vet visit. He wears an e-collar only to get used to the feel, and has yet to be stimulated from it. Being mid-summer, I have not had any birds flight worthy enough to safely get up and out enough to shoot; however, I am 100% confident that I could currently harvest a bird over this puppy’s staunch point at 3.5 mos old. In fact, I probably could have done so for several weeks now.
I am not going to sit here and try to claim this pup is the best there ever was or will be. That would be a bold and unsubstantiated claim. I have had lots of dogs, trained a few, and hunted with even more. To claim “the best” after owning him for a month would certainly be a stretch. All I am saying is look at the list above. These are facts, the truth, and a quite honestly what John expects from EVERY dog he sells. I can say that I have never been more confident with a sight unseen dog purchase than I was with Jagd. John knows dogs, and what he says a dog will be, is what you will get. Period. I gave John a wishlist of: “Natural point and retrieve, fast starting, has to be ready to hunt in November, intense, tough and female” John replied with “I’ll sell you whatever you want, but I’m telling you, you need a male Jag pup. They’re tough as nails and he’ll be ready to hunt this fall.” I didn’t guide the guide, so to speak, and got a male as suggested. I’m glad I did.
I’m sure a fair number of people reading this will question the truthfulness of the above achievements of a 3.5 mo old pup with no check cord, no e-collar, and no professional training. I’m OK with that. I have plenty of unedited video and pictures of this pup for anyone interested in challenging those claims. He is the real deal, as are 99.9% of John’s dogs. The nice thing is, if you get the .1% dud, John will be the first one to tell you that he will make it right. If you want a high powered bird finding machine, you cannot go wrong with Prince’s Quality Gun Dogs. I’ll be back when a kennel spot opens up.

I purchased my GSP from John in February of this year. I came across John and prince quality gun dogs when i had my last GSP and was looking at him for training, due to unwanted circumstances the phone call was about a pup instead. When i talked to John the first time about a pup he asked me a bunch of question about what i wanted out of my dog so he could match me up with the perfect pup. He told me he had on male that he thought would be a good match for me so i went down to see him and this pup was everything he said it would be for its age.
Before i left with the pup i talked to John about training and told him i would like to do as much of it myself as possible and he was more than happy to help me along the way and guide me to make sure it was done correctly. He would talk over the phone and give me pointers on what to do. At the age of 5 months it was time for me to take him to John to start on getting finished out for this hunting season coming up, and I tell you he is the most honest guy there is. He told me to take my pup home because i have done everything that he was going to do with him and didn't want to take my money when there was no need for it.
I called John when my pup was 6 months old and was talking to him about the pup. He would not hold a bird steady at all and just wanted to break on it. John told me to bring him down and he would work with him and have him hold birds steady and woah broke in 2-3 weeks. 3 weeks after taking him down John called and told me my pup was ready to come home. I went down and he ran him for me and I was amazed at the dog my pup and become in that little of time. He knew what he was doing and pointed and held a bird like a true campion in my eyes.
John is honest and very good at what he does. He told me when i first meet him that he believed this is what he was put on earth to do and it was. He has a way with dogs like i have never seen before. He treated my pup like it was his own when he was there. I would recommend John and prince quality gun dogs to anyone that is looking for a great GSP for hunting and/or family companion that hunts on the weekends. He will match you with the perfect pup for you and your needs.
I can't wait to get my pup out this fall and really see what he can do! I have a feeling there will be a lot of birds shot over him.
John thank you for the quality of work you did with my pup you truly turned him in to a champion for me, and matched me with my best hunting buddy and hit the nail on the head with him.

I contacted John about my GSP. He hunted but needed work. John did exactly what he said he would do and made him a better dog. He is a good honest God fearing man. Had a concern about my dogs health so he took him to a vet for me while he was in his care. I would recomend John for training over anyone any day of the week.

I waited some time before I posted this review so that I could fully describe my experience. We contacted John regarding our desire to find the perfect GSP for our family. A great family companion, a good citizen that can hunt with us on the weekends. We weren't looking for a field trial dog, just one that would find us some birds during youth season for my sons and through the rest of the season with all 3 of us. I almost feel guilty that we got our dear Madi because someone is missing out on a field trial phenom. She is a bird hunting monster and sometimes I think that if someone else had her she would take Grand Champion wherever you took her. And she was only 10-11 months her first season! When I contacted John he was so great to work with and said that he would be able to tell the puppies personality in short order and make a recommendation. We took the puppy he recommended but couldn't get her until about 14-15 weeks because of some time conflicts. During that time John worked with her a little and you could definitely tell she was well bred and he is a great trainer. We got her back home and she changed our lives. We went through several bad family tragedies last year and without her around I just don't know we would have came out the same way. Sounds funny to say a dog can change your life, but Madi has. No matter how bad it got she will always make us smile. People stop us when we are walking her to tell us how beautiful she is - it happens at least 3 times a week. Our vet is in love with her and says that is how a dog is supposed to look. My favorite story so far was we took her out for the first time for youth pheasant hunting. She had worked with quails and done really well. After working two fields we didn't see anything and I wanted to stop at the truck to get her some water. She wouldn't come over to the truck and was going towards the ditch. All the sudden she locks up in perfect point. I wasn't sure she knew what she was doing and just stood there watching her, and after about 30 seconds she finally turned her head and looked right at me and gave me that look like "hey dummy, there is one of those bird things right here!". My 12 year old went over as fast as he can but the bird got up and was gone. We laughed so hard, she turned her head because we weren't doing what we were supposed to be doing and gave us the stink eye! I learned to trust her and if she takes us a different direction, it is because she is on a bird. She did great this season and I can't even imagine how well she will be this fall. John is an honest man, who loves his dogs and has been doing this long enough to know what dog will fit your needs. We can't recommend him enough. He will treat you right and you will end up with a phenomenal dog that meets your needs. I feel like we are wasting a Grand Champion in our local public hunting lands, but I won't give Madi up for any amount of money. Trophies or not, she is making memories for me and my two sons that can't be replaced. Call John, he has the reputation as being the best for a reason - because it is true.

I received a GSP from John for a graduation present from my grandfather this past August (best graduation present ever right?). My grandfather is getting older and we did not want to wait to train up a new pup for this upcoming season. After contacting John, he was able to hook us up with the perfect dog to meet our needs for this season. The dog that John recommended has exceeded our biggest expectations and then some. She is a great dog, both in the field and at home. I wanted to wait until the season wrapped up to write my review and I have nothing but positive things to say about my dog and John. He is a quality individual who is 100% honest and he knows and loves his dogs. My dog does everything that John promised she would be able to do, and then some. Thank you John.
John- I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided my grandfather and I. Ava has provided us with many memories this season that will stay with both of us forever. Hope all is well.

Well sorry it has taken so long to get this out there and brag about the male Roan my uncle and I purchased from John last year towards the end of phesant season but I just couldn't believe how good he did as a 7mo old so we hunted a little with"Cash" and we waited until this year when we went on a hunting trip to South Dakota this dog knocked it out of the park
