Home of Pine Valley Beagles and Pine Valley German Shorthaired Pointers. We are a licensed commercial kennel in Lapeer County, Michigan. We started with our first German Shorthaired Pointer back in 1980 and our first pair of beagles in 1983. Since then we have grown to more than two dozen adult hunting dogs.
Our GSPs are bred for their hunting abilities. They are not show dogs. Naturally, confirmation is also an important factor to responsible breeding, but my GSPs must have both! "All show and no go" doesn't cut it around this kennel! All of our GSPs used for breeding and stud are OFA certified to be sure that your GSP puppy will not suffer from any genetic medical problems, such as hip dysplasia. Our goal here at Pine Valley Gundogs is to offer you a healthy puppy that you can mold into your hunting companion for many years to come.
Our beagles are hard hitting gundogs that have lots of speed and drive, bred and trained to find the rabbits for you. No more kicking brush piles, that job belongs to the beagles! If you want a good jump dog that hunts for you, you've come to the right kennel. Follow us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pine-Valley-Gundogs/218029064912196

When we had to put our beagle of 14 yrs to sleep, I knew I wanted/needed another beagle in my life. I did a lot of diligent research on several different breeder sites when I came upon pine valley. They were very knowledgeable & willing to answer any questions I had. We got our pup April 2, 2020 & he is absolutely wonderful. He’s very smart & already follows his nose. They give you a bunch of information & let you know as much as they can to possibly answer any questions you might have down the road. They’re very friendly & are available whenever you have a question & you can tell they truly love & care about their dogs & the families they go to.

End September 2019 I adopted a beagle from Pine Valley. I have been extremely happy with my pup. He is almost 5 months old, has a fantastic nose in the fields, and is doing well with basic commands like sit and stay. When out in public, I get so many comments on his markings and behavior. All positive! If you are looking for a beagle puppy, I would highly recommend Pine Valley. They are very knowledgeable about the breed and make sure you are a good fit for your pups.

So excited to be adding another quality GSP from Pine valley gundogs to our family! We added our first GSP from them to our family just over three years ago, and knew it would not be the last. A friend from work had one of their GSP’s from a previous litter and I was very impressed. The intelligence, temperament, trainability, and affection of these dogs are amazing. One of my hunting buddies has also added two of Pine valleys GSP’s to his family and could not be any happier. Can’t wait to meet our new pup next month when he is ready to bring home!

Boy this is going to be easy. First off I have been around show dogs all my life as my mother had the first Briard in the US to win the working group. As a teen we had a couple Vizslas. After marriage a Wirehair was my dog. I meet Mike through my cousin about two years ago hunting and purchased a GSP from him and she is just a natural!! I mean for real, I’m busy with HVAC work in the fall so training time was lacking on my part. Took Jeannie out and she just got it from the start! But my best endorsement comes from this.... Pay close attention . I was going to purchase another pup from Mike from the same Bitch and Sire, Mike talked me out of it so Jeannie could grow another year and be a better role model for the pup??? What I thought? You care more about the dog you sold over a year ago then another sale!!! That folks is a caring breeder that puts the dogs first and not the $ ... Hats off to this Kennel!! Oh and my Mother agrees too.

I have had Beagles in the past, this was the first that I have bought from Mike. We got him at 8 weeks old and he settled into the family quickly. I actively started his training around 10 months old and could tell right away that he was going to be a great rabbit dog. He was almost a year old when I took him up to Drummer Island for his first big hunt and was very impressed with how he performed. He even started his own rabbit and veteran beagles packed up with him. He loves to sit and relax with the family and yet as soon as I put the collar on him he gets excited and ready to hunt. I would recommend anyone wanting a rabbit dog to get one from Mike.

When we lost our beloved GSP, Shooter, we knew we needed to give our other GSP a great pal who hunts. Losing a fur kid after a decade plus, was devastating...to our solo GSP...he would not eat, and required sedation. After speaking tonout vet, he suggested getting another GSP pup.
We contacted plenty of breeders and found the perfect fit with Mike and Rosie!
We are grateful for our son, Boomer. He sure is a character!
I would recommend Mike 100% over again!

When I decided to purchase a GSP puppy from Pine Valley Gun Dogs it was one of the best decisions I ever made! I wanted a dog that would be a top notch hunter, retriever and companion.
When I started talking to Mike and he shared his passion for his dogs I felt very comfortable, he also cared for his dogs enough to make sure that we were a fit for one of his pups making sure we knew that Nelli would need lots of exercise and room to run.
Well, to say that we're happy with Nelli would be a huge understatement! She was hunting, pointing and retrieving pheasants at 10 months of age. She also runs down crippled birds like a seasoned veteran.
If you're looking for a top notch breeder with a passion for quality, not to mention a love for all of his dogs you're search is over.

I purchased a beagle pup from pinevally in November of 2015.. I could not be happier with my choice. I have had several beagles in my life, but this one tops them all. I knew from the moment I brought her home that I had made a great choice. My pup turns a year old on August 12th ,and she is a great hunter& family pet. I would recommend Pinevally Gun Dogs to anyone looking for a great all around Beagle.

I had been wanting a dog for a couple of years when I finally convinced my husband that we really needed one to complete our family. Neither of us are huge into hunting, but my family is and my brother encouraged us to get a "hunting dog" just for the simple fact that they are incredibly intelligent. No one I knew had a GSP, but Rich and I both loved the breed and did a ton of research to find that they are the perfect breed for us. After having a conversation via phone with Mike, we set up an appointment to just go and see the available puppies, but once we saw them, it was inevitable that we were going to bring one home with us. We actually got the last available puppy from the August 2015 Autumn and Duke litter, a male that we named Sully.
Needless to say, we absolutely love our new addition. He really does complete our family! Sully is so smart, instinctive, playful, and loyal. We couldn't have gotten a better dog! As for Mike and Rosie, we can't say enough about how reputable they are as people and breeders. I haven't met people with so much integrity in a long time. They went above and beyond to make sure that our puppy was healthy in their care, and that the transition to us into his new home, was seamless.
I would hands down encourage anyone I know to get in touch with Mike if they're looking to get a GSP. You will not be disappointed with the dogs, and you'll be beyond happy with the service.

I told Mike Papiez I would do this testimonial. Bought male & female beagles 3 yrs ago at 8 wks. Primary use, rabbit hounds. Jeanne & I are too dam busy. We love bow/rifle hunting for deer. Oct/Nov/Dec our focus is on the deer. I didn't put the time in to train Odie & Elmer though had them afield a lot. I wasn't seeing much the first 2 yrs with them. Last winter these dog's genetics showed how good of dogs Mike has. I had a ball watching these 2 beagles run rabbits. They performed awesomely running rabbits late Dec/Jan/Feb & early March. Listening to them bark on rabbits became music to my ears. I became a beagler and let most of the bunnies just run by me without shooting them. Several family members and friends enjoyed hunting with these beagles last winter. Kudos to my dogs Odie/Elmer. Mike, I hope the vast majority of your clients are as satisfied as Jeanne/I are. BTW, prior to purchasing these 2 beagles Jeanne/I owned 2 Jagd German terriers. Bought them from breeder down South. If anyone is looking for a challenge and wants a 20 lb terrier full of teeth, are not afraid of anything, want to kill everything they can get a hold of, are great blood hounds, are great lap dogs, and will protect you with their life these dogs are the real deal. We found out about these dogs on Deersearch.org website. Both of these pigheaded stubborn dogs took off on me at night (1 yr apart) and wouldn't come back. Unfortunately they were struck by vehicles and died. We miss those Jagds sooooo much. Anyway thanks Mike, great genetics and beautiful hounds. I am now a beagler!! Dale
