About Draco Kennels
At Draco Kennels, we strive to provide you with a healthy, social, intelligent lifelong companion. Dogs are family here! Early socialization, interaction and exercises in good manners go a long way! Since the exciting moment of birth, all puppies are handled by our family, multiple times a day. The puppies spend their first few weeks entirely indoors, with all the normal sights and sounds of a household. As they develop, we introduce more outdoor playtime, toys, interactive physical playtime. And always, personal attention given to all. Who can resist "puppy snuggling"? We have been breeding Quality Gundogs for nearly 30 years, and that experience shows in the pup you take home. Breeding plans are carefully researched, to combine the best attributes of each dog to produce a wonderful, happy, healthy litter of pups to develop into phenomenal dogs capable of fulfilling the Standards for the Breed. Bred "True to Type", to look as they should, and perform as they should, in whatever venue you choose to pursue! Whether you plan to show, hunt, agility, obedience, therapy or just enjoy life with a constant devoted companion, your puppy will be eager and willing to be by your side through it all, for all their years to come!

Purchased a beautiful Gordon setter pup from Diana in Kentucky! Very pleased with her service! I needed the pup brought up to Canada and she helped every way she could! I ran into lots of bumps along the way and took a while to find the pup a way up, Diana was very patient and very helpful, couldn’t of asked for a better breeder to purchase a pup off! 10/10 recommend her!!

We have a Boykin Spaniel from Draco Kennels and he is by far our best dog as of yet. He is our first Boykin and he is amazing. His drive for hunting is outstanding paired with his gentle mouth makes for perfection. Bo is 5 yrs old and I swear if we could clone him we would.
Best decision we ever made was to get a Boykin.

Our beloved Gordon we bought from Diane is absolutely a wonderful dog. He is 12 and 1/2 yr and "hanging is there fine". He is devoted, smart,beautiful and loving. Thank you Diane. Hopefully not too soon but we will be in touch one day Kathy Mertz. Mother of Gus from RochesterNY

My husband and I purchased 2 Gordon setter puppies from Diana in August of 2020. She has been the best breeder that I have dealt with. She TRULY cares about her animals and her property shows that. She always communicated with us and sent pictures. The puppies have wonderful personalities. She is a very hard worker. Can not say enough good about her and the dogs. The lineage of the dogs is amazing!

My husband and I have bought two Gordon Setters from Draco and we couldn’t be happier with our experience or pups! They are fabulous hunting dogs, gorgeous, loyal, funny, and smart as a whip. We look forward to doing business with Diana again in the future!

Rusty is our sweet boy from Draco Kennels. He has the sweetest personality, gets along well with all dogs, loves people and a laid back mama’s boy. He is our fifth Brittany. He is our first boy Brittany and if I’d known how sweet he’d be I’d have got a boy a long time ago. We’ve had Brittany’s since the eighty’s.

Diane breeds the best Brittany’s I’ve ever had, she’s easy to get a hold of her, very informative, promptly got our registration papers and she even met us 20 minutes from our home on her way to Florida to drop Rusty off to us.

I would recommend Draco Kennels to anyone who wants a sweet sweet Brittany and Diane is the best.

We bought our Brittany late winter of 2014. We started training as soon as we got home with Lizzy. Obedience came very natural and interaction with our very young kids was nothing short of amazing. I was worried at first that she didn't show any interest in a wing or body. So we kept at it the best we could till that day came to go live and we hit the ground on fire and now as a three year old you had better pack a lunch if you want to keep up. ONE WORD "DRIVEN"

I got a Gordon Setter from Diana 5 years ago. I hunt him primarily on high elevation blue grouse and he has yet to meet a dog with a better nose or feel for wild birds. When I first got him, I was worried I'd have to teach him how to work the birds... First wild blue grouse he ever saw he pinned between myself and him and it's been a pleasure to watch him mature into the finest bird dog I could have asked for. I've had him on pheasant, quail, grouse and chukar and he doesn't skip a beat - what a nose!!! He's an absolute pleasure to be around and provides us plenty of entertainment on a daily basis. I can't recommend Draco enough!

Bought a Boykin pup from Draco Kennels about a month ago. Diana was a pleasure to work with. Have had no problem out of the pup. She is 12 weeks old now and has been in the water, sits to a whistle and command, stays on command (briefly), comes when called and goes crazy over thawed doves. I plan to introduce her to live quail in the next couple of weeks. She has been very easy to house break, stays in the kennel overnight with no trouble and is a very easy dog to train so far. Pup gets along with our 1 year old son and other dog with no problems at all.

This Boykin from Draco is my first bird dog but I recommend Draco highly.
