I purchased a male pup from Berg Brothers Setters on June of 2019 out of Easy Glide and Abby. He stayed with Ben until he was 8 months old working in the bird pen etc., I contacted my trainer,Dr. Phil Fortner at pea ridge kennels in Trenton, TN. He said he planned to retire so I should contact Ronnie Smith at Ronnie Smith Kennels in Pawhuska,OK,Which I did.Ronnie and his lovely wife Susanna trained that pup to perfection. His reg. name is Dixie Star's

I have purchase five dogs from Berg Bros over the past eight years. I have friends that have hunted with me that liked my dogs and they have purchased dogs from Ben. I have hunted extensively with 10 dogs that have come from the Berg Bros Kennel, only two that are related. Every Berg Bros dog I have been around is a dog anyone would be proud to own. Great manners, style, serious bird finding dogs. I hunt around 50 days each season, normally in South Texas, if you want a great dog, call Ben Berg.

Ben, Scott, Our two year old female setter we have named Puma is all and more you told me she would be. Puma is a calm, loving, intelligent, hard core hunter. This young dog is the complete package, the absolute Llewellin setter with textbook field abilities. She possesses tremedous composure when on point. Late last season in the northern woods of Maine at 2yrs & 1 week of age she handled several Ruffed Grouse moving on the ground in all weather conditions from calm to the most herendous weather as a young finished dog would. I would place this dog on the ground in any arena with complete confidence.
Thank You Ben, Scott, Best Regards, John Tunney TK'S OwenBoy on the ground (781-733-5581) Hard Core Grouse Hunter, Northern New England/ Eastern Canada

In the past I have purchased a couple of dogs from both Scott and Ben of Berg Bros Kennels and they have been fantastic. True blue stock. This past fall I sent two young pups down to Ben and Scott for training on October 1st and they stayed until December 15th. They were amazing. They were well fed and well, well, looked after during their stay. In fact I might even go as far as to say they were in better shape when they returned from their training. They were only 5 months old when they left and you could tell that they were well looked after because when they came back they never skipped a bit, it was like they had never been away from us at all. In fact I am sending down to the prairies this August again for training.
If you are ever looking for a good bird dog or training for that bird dog don't hesitate to call and use Berg Bros. Kennels as they are ranked # 1 in my books.

If you're a serious upland bird hunter that is looking for an elegant yet high powered dog that is as good in the field as he is at home you won't have done your homework until you've checked out Berg Bros. Having owned a number of accomplished shorthairs including a NAVADA prize I utility dog the bar was set extremely high for what I was looking for in my next bird dog. I found it at Berg's.
Their focus and commitment to evaluating, breeding & training the best Setters in the country is second to none. There state of the art facility and personable approach will have you convinced where your next dog is coming from.

Great bloodlins/breeding program + Great training program = One heck of a bird dog. Berg Brothers have done all the homework for you, it just increases your odds of having a great hunting partner for years to come. My dog Finn hunts for me, zero to little handling required, looks great on point and in field. Berg Bros stays in contact with you all the way through, Ben knows these dogs inside and out and take the time to teach/train the handler as well as the dog.

Thought you might like to know I have Mabel over at Knob Mt. Kennels with Tom. His place is only a half-hour from me and I've known him for some time. He runs dogs on spring woodcock so I thought it would be good experience for Mabel. Tom e-mailed me and said to call him as he had something he wanted to discuss. After gushing on for a long, long, time about how Mabel is the nicest dog he's had at his place for a long, long time, he asked if I'd object if he ran her in some trials. Apparently she is really been impressive.

Juno has been an absolute delight--sweet, calm around the house and a dead serious bird dog. She has great endurance, runs a great pattern and has been staunch and steady as can be. During her first year she has developed into an almost finished bird dog. Her drive, desire, intensity and manners around game are amazing for a pup. We got in about 30 days on wild birds--a week of sharptail and sage grouse in Montana, 2 weeks of ruffed grouse and woodcock in Michigan and a bunch of scattered days in Kansas. I couldn't have asked for anything more and I'll be in touch again in the future as soon as I can talk my wife into letting me have another dog. I got to hunt a few days with my friend Dennis and Razor (now Sherlock) and he's one heck of a dog too.

I got “Star” (Zorro x Pepper) 3 years ago and she has it all – extraordinary bird finder, impeccable manners on birds, speed, stamina, smarts, perfect range with easy (no) handling, flashy going and on point. Star is my tenth setter, all very good dogs from outstanding lines, but she’s the first pup from you – and well on her way to being the best bird dog of them all.
Star handled grouse beautifully from her very first hunt at just ten months of age. She moves swiftly and stylishly through tough cover, stays to the front, covers a lot of ground and digs up a lot of birds. Amazingly, she requires no “handling”. I just walk and she stays to the front, mostly out of sight but within audible bell range, finds birds and points them with style. No hacking, no yelling, no whistle blowing.
Best, she’s exactly the type dog Scott said she’d be. He spent time listening to what I wanted in a dog, and only then suggested a pup from a particular breeding. That’s why I didn’t consider going anywhere else for my newest pup – now ten weeks old.
