Carpenters Kennels - Missouri English Setter Breeders
About Carpenters Kennels
Carpenter's Kennel is located in Central Missouri. We breed English Setters to produce First Class hunting dogs, be it, close range or horse back trial dogs. Over the last 30 years, we have bred to such dogs as; Ch. Tomoka, Ch. Pinnacle, I'm Oscar, Ch Brawny Lad, Ch. Wayfarer, Ch Amos Mosley, Ch Bozeann's Mosley, and Ch. Barker's Blue Jett to name a few. We feel to produce outstanding dogs you must have outstanding females. Carpenter's Kennels has several outstanding females out of a son of Ch Grouse Ridge Storm and Ch. Star's Misty Ghost that we are now breeding. Our female Carpenter's Misty Star produced 3X Ch Barker's Blue Horizon. Dee won both the Region 7 and 8 Ama walking Shooting Dog Ch. and the Region 8 AMA All Age Ch. She was just name winner of the George Evans Ama All Age Engish Setter awards. OUR MISSION is to breed the best to the best.

Larry is bird dog expert, impeccably honest and a true gentleman. Have had two very nice dogs from Larry. Both dogs were not only fine hunting companions but pets which were house dogs. Larry is top notch.

Larry is the man!
After purchasing a pup from him and then running dogs in his backyard for a few weeks this summer, I can honestly say there is nobody better as a breeder, mentor or friend. Larry "gets" Setters and produces some of the best dogs out there. He knows what his breedings will produce and what they won't. His dogs are all very trainable, bright and have great temperaments. I look forward to purchasing another dog from him in the future.

A few months back I was searching the web for a great English Setter. I found several breeders on this web-site. After I contacted Larry Carpenter I knew I had the THE right man. Larry is a "setter man" in the tradition of Elwin Smith and Lloyd Moseley. He has spent a great deal of time studying from these. Larry is truthful and honest. He breeds great dogs and gets great puppies. He sells great stock. He sold me a pick of the litter and I would not sell her for twice what I gave for her. She is tenacious and has the kind of drive that makes a bird dog a joy to train. If you are a serious bird hunter or field trialer, you should contact Larry Carpenter.

From the moment we started working with Larry, we knew we had picked the right breeder. Larry was so good about first letting us know when our baby girl, Lady, was born and continued to update us through emails and phone calls and great pictures of our girl. He helped work out arrangements so we could get Lady without having to ship her and we truly thank him for that! When we are ready to get another English Setter, we would not look anywhere else. Larry is friendly, so knowlegdable about the pups, and the dogs are healthy and beautiful! I highly recommend Carpenter Kennels for your next English Setter. Thanks Larry! Stay tuned for many pics of Lady! Kaki and Robert John

We met Larry just one week ago. He's a class act and knows his dogs! His kennel was clean and the dogs were well kept and cared for. We had the opportunity to see the pups, we were interested in, out in the field and work and react to the birds.
We were very pleased with his pedigree selection and the pup we were hoping to go "check-out" is now happy at his new home along with another pup!! They were both outstanding and just seemed like a perfect fit for us!! They have been so good this past week. They are both really smart and pick up on things with good speed and haveT great dispositions. Not only respond well to both of us but, to all of our Thanksgiving guest, of all ages. They seem to have really taken to our 11 year old Setter and pay attention to what he does in the field and around the kennel/yard!! So far could not be any more pleased. Will send pics and more updates on Hank and Amos as they are avail. Thanks again Larry for an outstanding experience! Jim and Rae
