For more than 34 years I have been involved in this particular breed. I have intentionally kept the foot hunting family in mind and breed specifically for: Temperment, Cooperation, Coat, Biddability, Natural Ability. I am a hunter and seek to produce pups/dogs that are excellent in the field and home and offer all that I sell a 2 yr. health guarantee as well as registration papers. My lines feature some of the greatest foundation dogs within the breed including but not limited to the following: NAFC DC AFC Jay-Mar's Cina's Runaway Train, CH RLB's Maddie Mae, NFC DC Sure Shot's Hot Rocks, CH Backwoods Mo Kick, NFC NAFC DC AFC Cascade Ike, and many more. I produce no more than 1-2 litters/year and I am able to provide many references to those that want them. I pride myself on my facilities - safe, clean and abundant space for all the pups/dogs. All inquiries are welcomed and calls returned. Shipping available at new owner's expense and subject to restrictions as imposed by selected carrier. All the Best, John

Great selection/purchase process and awesome dog. John was great to work with to ensure I got a dog i really wanted. I got a black & white male out of “Inga” & “Steamer”. Dog has great temperament with other animals and people. He has a perfect coat and healthy build. He is a natural in the field & can hunt all day long, 3 days straight. Last fall was his first season and he acted like a seasoned pro.

Picked up my first GWP and first pointing dog from John in June of 2019. Was used to hunting without a dog (terrible idea), had experience with obedience work, but never had trained a hunting dog. I told John about my initial doubts about getting my pup to point. John assured me that he will point. At 8 weeks old he was holding points for 2-3 minutes and retrieving anything in sight. He was a dream to train in the home and taught me more than I could ever teach him in the field. He is a retrieving machine and never leaves a bird in the field. The only time he doesn't listen in the field is when he knows there is a crippled bird running or hiding and I have given up on us finding it, I'll start walking to the car only to have him catch up to me with a live pheasant or quail in his mouth and him saying - "See, told ya I'd find it."
He naturally was backing points at 7 months old and retrieving ducks out of water in late December in Montana with snow on the ground at the same age. We live and hunt a majority in Kansas for quail, pheasant, and ducks and has been trained all on wild birds mainly on public land. By 2.5 years old he has pointed and retrieved Pheasant, Bobwhite Quail, Hungarian Partridge, Prairie Chickens, Cottontail rabbits, and Jack Rabbits. He has had hundreds of retrieves on ducks also. Planning to get a female GWP in the near future and I know who I'll be calling.
John's dogs HUNT!

My pup was only 10 months old when this hunting season started and he has been absolutely fenominal. I cannot believe the instincts this dog has. I have been working him in my back 40 acre field since I got him but haven't had to teach him anything. He has actually taught me more then anything. All I can say is wow.

I picked up Jake in august of 2020. For being a first time dog owner and big into waterfowling and pheasant hunting I needed a dog that could go and go, day in and day out. I absolutely more than impressed with how my dog turned out. High energy and high prey drive. John was a fantastic guy to reach out to. Always kept in contact and made everything as easy as possible.

Our family got our first GWP from John in late May of 2019. A female we named Keala. She is now 1 year and 9 months old. This past Fall, she had 50 - 60 water retrieves on ducks and developed nicely on pheasants, trailing them and holding points well. One of the most well-mannered dogs I’ve ever seen with a very nice on-off switch - calm around the house, but strong prey drive! A great family dog too. John was great to work with in getting her as a pup.

First of all...John is top notch! We contacted him when we heard he had a litter on the ground and told him what we were looking for in a breeder dog. We wanted a long haired puppy with a gray beard and that is what we got! The fact that they also came from a good hunting stock was very important too. From the time we sent the deposit until the time we received our puppy. John would send us videos of the puppies so we could see them weekly as they grew. We couldn't have ask for a better puppy! Thanks John for everything!

We bought Lexi in January. This is our 2nd dog from John. We are very happy so far. She is great with our young kids and is very intelligent. We are excited to get her out hunting this Fall. Our last one had a great nose on her.
We would highly recommend John’s dogs and plan to get our next one from him in years to come.

We have two of his dogs. The first is four years old and the second is 10 months old. Both are excellent hunters that just keep going. They are really good with the kids and family. When with family they are very loving and calm. We would recommend them to anyone as first class hunting Dogs and family pets.
