About Bitter Root Kennel

There is one Bitter Root Kennel in  Missouri, and this is it!  This is the home of Mac's Banjo Brian and Tomoka Shades.  

Kirk is the owner and trainer at Bitter Root.  He has been around English Setters for 37 years now.  It was always a dream of his to have a small kennel, and now it appears to have come true for him.  This kennel was conceived with his patience and love for the English Setter breed.  English Setter's have been the one and only dog for him throughout his life.  His children and grandchildren have been raised around his dogs, so he knows they are not just great hunting dogs, but equally great coompanions.  If you'd let them, they'd love to be lap dogs, but their size inhibits such. 

Kirk knows his dogs, so the breeding at Bitter Root is carefully selected by bloodline. Hunting is their game. Twenty-six champions in the bloodline, so far!   Mac's Banjo Brian is the sire, and Broker Blast Samantha is the Dam of latest litter. We have shipped, and still ship their puppies anywhwere in the USA.  All puppies are sold with a health guarantee, and a current health record.  There are three pups left from our 2007 litter of 8 puppies which were whelped on 11-05-07.  Two males and one female. Two of our pups were shown on a local Denver TV station in January, 2008.  We also have Started and Finished dogs.  All of the dogs have pedigrees.

Bitter Root is a small kennel which has established a very good reputation  with excellent bloodlines.  These dogs have been bred for intelligence, and it shows.  Their temperment is the best you will find anywhere.  They are raised with love and discipline, which appears to be a fine combination for this breed. 

This facility is beginning to grow, and hopes to be more readily available for you in the future; although we try to accomodate any need you have for a great bird dog at this time.

Our family was completed with Cassidy Sundance Clark. Female we got from Kirk going on 2 years now. She is a very intelligent dog. Learns commands for field and home quickly and with ease. Always wants to be near the family and in on what is going on. Kirk was great to work with. Wish we could be a 2 dog family but just dont have the room as we keep our girl in the house with us. Having 75 acres she is always let out and loves to run for sport and fun. Would definitely recommend his dogs. My best friend loved our girl so much he got one of her sisters. His family is very pleased as well.
