We purchased our precious yellow female Labrador, Bella from Trent. As first time dog owners, there were so many things we had questions about and Trent was more than patient with my questions and concerns (even after we got her home). Bella has the sweetest disposition and has done great with her obedience, hunting, etc. We chose a local trainer since we are quite a distance away, but would definitely purchase future dogs from Pheasant Bonanza as well as recommend them to others. I highly recommend Trent and Pheasant Bonanza.

I have seen this club grow some much. In the past 5 yrs that I have been doing bussiness with them. I have had Trent force fetch, board, and now help rasing a litter of German Shorthair pups for me. They are also have Gun Dog trials all summer. Thanks,"Pheasant Bonanza for everything."

I recently purchased a puppy from Pheasant Bonanza Hunt Club and Kennel. This is my third hunting dog and already I know that I have a fantastic hunting partner. We bought a lab from Trent Leichleiter who had a yellow lab named Duece (the father) and a black lab named Saunders. I am so impressed with the early abilities this puppy has already shown. At just 7 weeks old Charger our pup saw and grabbed the first live bird she had ever seen. The desire she showed to retrieve this bird was so unbelievable.
When she was 8 weeks old I wanted to see if she would retrieve in water so I threw a rock into our small pool. Needless to say she not only retrieved the rock but stuck her head under water to get it.
I would highly recommend a puppy from Trent and his male hunting dog Duece. Charger is extremely intelligent and has a perfect demeanor for my boys ages 8 and 5.
Thanks Trent for the great hunting partner we have in charger.

We purchased our dog from Pheasant Bonanza as a puppy in the spring of 2007. We started his training there at six months old. The training they have given our dog Kirby has been unbelievable! Kirby has competed in the PHU trials and has done very well. He has also competed in the Regional & National trials and done very well also. His last competition was in the AKC LICENSED HUNT TEST and he earned his JUNIOR HUNT TITLE. Kirby accomplished this through the excellent training of his trainer's & handler's. Kirby is currently in training with them for hand signals. We are looking forward for the fall of 2009 competitions and we are going to try and get Kirby his AKC SENIOR TITLE.
Thank You All At Pheasant Bonanza;
Jerry & Mary Uhing

We purchased a little female lab puppy from Trent and Katie. She is a sweet dog who loves to play fetch and is crazy about birds!
Trent was great about letting us visit the pups at any time so we could get to know them. The parents were well cared for, well mannered, and great hunters. We think Indy will be the same.
We would recommend one of Trent's puppies to anyone!

Pheasant Bonanza provided me with a 6month old GSP liver & white male named Hoff who has been remarkable in the field! He has won 2 competitions & placed in the top 3 in several other competitions. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a Top Competition dog. Their breeding program is excellent with only the best hunting dogs around! I'm looking forward to competing with Hoff this Summer at Pheasant Bonanza's Dog Competitions.

This club is great and goes the extra mile on everything. I am very pleased with my new starter dog. I got a german shorthair. They stand behind their product and have even called to follow up after I bought the dog. I would recommend to all my friends
