About Eaglerock Setters

Eaglerock Setters  have been breeding some of the finest English Setters for over 40 years. Our focus has been on biddable dogs that have strong natural abilities on WILD birds.  Through a rigorous breeding program started by the late John Yates and we have been able to establish a fine line of companion gundogs. Our dogs make the transition from field to fireplace with ease. They are naturally talented hunters, loyal companions, and true members of the family. Through carefull examination of hunting skills, natural bird sense, socialablity, and temper we have perfected a fine strain of English Setter; the Eaglerock Setter.

The foundation of the Eaglerock bloodlines are from some of the finest if not most famous Setters of the past thirty years. Our foundations include the great Champion and Hall of Famer Tekoa Mountain Sunrise, CH Johnny Crockett, CH Tekoa Mountain Hope, CH See Johnny Run, CH Taz, CH Pinekone Max Jr, CH Long Gone Nixon, CH Grouse Ridge Reroy, CH Hamiltons Blue Diamond, CH Stillmeadows Benjamin, GNC Heartbreaker, GNC Stokely's Diablo Jake, Ch Long Gone Boston, Ch Long Gone George, CH Longe Gone Agnes, GNC Cracklin Tail Speed, GNC Stillmeadows Jim, CH Tricky Dick, CH Jetsetter and Eaglerock Indigo. 

We at Eaglerock Setters strive to do one thing, produce and develop some of the finest Setters available to even the most discrimintating upland gunner.  It is this passion for fine dogs and attention to detail that separates the Eaglerock Setter from the rest.  All of our dogs are kept in the home and are extremely well socialized. Puppies are whelped and weaned in our home so from the first few moments after birth till they head to their new homes they are socialized, loved, cultured and cared for.

Puppies are acclimated to the car, collar, lead and for the most part house trained when they are picked up.  This is a very time consuming and demanding process but provides you with a more educated puppy and educated puppies make happy owners.  Happy owners make dogs happy.

We strive to be one of the finest in the industry and would like to thank the companies who recognize this by their endosements:C.C. Filson, Dogtra,Danner Boots, and Purina, Eddie Bauer Sport, Prois, Yeti Coolers, Birddog Whiskey and Columbia.  Their continued support allows us to keep breeding and hunting our dogs at the highest levels.  We trust their names as much as they trust ours.

Puppies from 2013 and 2014 and  litters have shown great talent, temperment and skill.  We currently are hunting a 13 month old and are hunting and trialing several who are between 7 and 13 months as well as training some as young as 3 months  All of our past litters have proven themselves as top notch gundogs and family companions beyond compare

We have several Finished dogs for sale and have several Puppy/Derby prospects and for the most part can accommodate any need that an individual client has.

Upcoming Litters:

  • Eaglerock Ellie is currently bred to Eaglerock Nigel with a litter expected Mid May
  • Eagercok Perfect Storm will be bred early summer to Eaglerock Micah

We currently have quite a few deposits on the upcoming littesr and have room for a few more.  Our litters are generally sold before they are born so if you are interested in a pup please let us know.

We are more than happy to email pictures and pedigrees upon request and if you would like to visit us please just call and set up an appointment. See the dogs, see our operation and see what makes an Eaglerock different.

Our clients range from persons with disabilities who use them for assistance dogs, to high ranking military and government officials, to young couples, avid hunters, field trailers, and families looking for a perfect pet and the working guys and gals just like us.


We offer basic to advanced training on all pointing breed and offer both individual, group, and boarded lessons.  We offer a free consultation and evaluation before we train any dog.  Our success is outstanding with several dogs under 18 months being fully finished and steady to wing and shot as well as retrieving.  We can customize a plan specifically for you and your dog.  All training is done with the use of live birds....excellence comes from bringing good breeding and coaxing out the raw natural ability of the dog.

I just recently purchased a pup from Mike and Tammy and I couldn't be any happier with my choice of breeder. Both Mike and Tammy were very personable and patient with me and all my questions. This is my first Bird Dog I have ever owned so I have many questions and concerns with things like nutrition, obedience and proper training that come up on constant basis but I know without a doubt that I will get a quick response when I ask a question. So thank you Mike and Tammy for sharing your knowledge with me and helping me through out this entire process. If your in the market for a top notch English Setter I would Highly recommend Eaglerock Setters...

Mike and Tammy, of Eaglerock Setters, are awesome! Our family has been working with them for well over a year to get our perfect puppy. We were relocating and waiting to get our property in Ohio and Mike kept us up-to-date on litters and time frames like we were his only customers. It all paid off, and last week we brought home Boone, a beautiful, great-natured English Setter! Mike and Tammy have become good friends, which is how they treat their customers. We couldn't be happier with our pup and the whole experience. I highly recommend them!

Being a first time dog owner, I did not have much experience with dog breeders. Mike And Tammy are excellent to deal with. Since we lived close, they let us come and visit our puppy every weekend so Chester ( our puppy) would get used to us and our son. Mike answered my countless questions, even after we brought Chester home. They are very passionate about their dogs. I highly recommend them!

Very impressed! Mike and Tammy are very passionate about their setters. I have been looking for a pup for a while now and did a lot of research, after my visit with Eaglerock I was convinced I had found the right breeder. I will be purchasing a setter from them and I can't wait! I look forward to working with eaglerock and would highly recommend meeting with mike and Tammy to witness their first class operation first hand!

We purchased a puppy from Eaglerock just prior to Christmas. I must say that the dogs they have are exceptional. They Re friendly, very personable and just really nice dogs.

When we got out pup he was already used to a car and a lead and collar He rode the 5 hrs home without incident. Mike and Tammy provided us with all the help and instruction so that he has a long happy life.

We looked at many breeders and although many were very reputable nobody was as thorough as Eaglerock in making sure we had the pup that would best suit us.

Thanks Mike and Tammy.

Eagle rock is one of the best bredleders I have ever dealt with. Not only do they handle the purchase of your puppy personally and breed with a purpose they inject more love into the puppies and experience as I have ever seen in any other professional kennel or home breeder. All my questions were answered and was kept well up to date throughout the puppys development. I just came home with my new pup and couldnt be happier I will be doing buisness with them again when a pointer litter hits the ground...cant wait till another puppy pick up day!

We are so pleased with our Setters from Mike and Tammy. He is a joyful addition to our home and is turning out to be a great hunter. He was so loved that my daughter just purchased one from their last litter. He too is remarkable. Mike and Tammy have a class act operation. They are great to deal with and very committed to their dogs

My father our purchased a setter from Eaglerock about 7 months ago. We loved him so much that my son and I purchased a puppy from their last litter. He will just be turning 5 months and is amazing. He is so intelligent and easy to work with. We go everywhere with him and my son plans on having Mike work with him on training.

The facility is amazing. Their home is always open for a visit and they keep in contact with us on a regular basis. They have become great friends of the family.

It's a long drive from Portland, Maine to Butler, PA but well worth the trip for our sweet little Cooper! Mike and Tammy couldn't have been more helpful and gracious and the dogs are magnificent!! As owners of one of the best English Setters on earth, we were very picky about where our second pup would come from. We wanted a wonderful, loving, family dog and a good strong hunter. Eagle Rock was the perfect combination! What a great experience getting to know Mike and Tammy and spending time with all of their beautiful dogs. We are looking forward to a lifelong friendship and many more dogs to come!
