We purchased our dog “Rudy” from Ralph April of 2019 for our young boys and so I could have a dog to bird hunt with.
He is the most gentle dog I have ever been around and he is absolutely obsessed about birds. He’s either running back and forth while outside in the yard searching for birds or window to window looking for birds while inside if we are not playing with him.
Rudy is intelligent and was a quick student with his dog trainer for birds this past fall (Bob Ross in Ishpeming).
Rudy weighs 38 pounds at one year. He does have bird dog energy and we need to keep his mind and body active.
I highly recommend purchasing a dog from Ralph.

We received Molly from Ralph 2 years ago and she is the best all 'round hunting dog I've ever seen. Great temperament and fantastic field dog. Great company for my old shepherd mix and cat.

I got my Setter from Ralf in 2000 and was a great girl. She passed away Aug. 2017 at 17 years old. This was my 2nd. Setter I have had. Great dogs.

Ralph was great to work with and kept me up to date with the litter. We got our June Oct 2017 and she has been awesome. She is smart and a bit stubborn, which Ralph warned me about, but I think that they make the best dogs. She is a huge cuddler and was housebroken very easily. These dogs have a will to please which makes training easy. She pointed wings right out of the box and has progressed significantly in her bird dog training. We can't wait for this fall to get out in the woods and chase some birds with her. Thanks again Ralph, will definitely be coming back for another pup.

I bought my dog from Ralph. He has a Great knowledge of English Setters. I believe Ralph is the Apotheosis of English Setter Breeders. I have my Little Lacey since October 2016 in which she was delivered to my home. Ralph is a Great guy and his pets are guaranteed. He has excellent bloodlines and knows how to pick his papers. Ralph thanks to you and your wife for having Great Dogs.
Feel free to call anytime with questions.

Got my Mackinaw from Ralph in January. The pup is a class-act, and has had no health problems. Has been an apt pupil throughout training so far, even-keeled, friendly and as smart as a whip. Can't wait to enjoy my first grouse season with him this fall, and enjoy the coming years with him. I will definitely be going back to Ralph when it's time to get my second setter.

My husband and I got our "Missy" from Ralph last January. She is so smart and the most loving dog we have ever had. We definately need to keep mind/body active but that is what we love about her. She is active/energetic during the day and then a cuddle buddy at night. We definately see where this breed needs to be with people - she will follow us everywhere and is happiest when she is right with us. I would say this breed is not for people who are gone alot - she does get anxiety if we leave her for extended periods of time. Overall though she is great!

We bought our "Bess" from Ralph in January of 2008. She can still run any dog I know into the ground! And, I know alot of dogs because I'm a veterinarian.

We got a female puppy from Abbey Lane Setters almost a year ago. She is very smart and a very driven hunter. Ralph was great to deal with, even delivered my puppy all the way from the UP to the Detroit area!
