Best Gun Dogs is a full time training and breeding facility located in southern Utah. We are a dedicated kennel that's primary focus is to produce premium gun dogs through genetics and training. We take great pride in what we do and getting there with as minimal pressure on the dog as possible. We are devoted to the pointing dog breeds with our main focus on the German Shorthaired Pointer. We make our selections based on several criteria including: outstanding noses, great conformation, superior intelligence, and pleasing dispositions. We love the sport of hunting, especially over good bird dogs. With our competitive nature we also like to train our dogs to compete at AKC Hunt Tests, Field Trials, & NSTRA. Most important is producing or finding a dog that will not only perform in the field but also be a companion to your home.
We have been training pointing dogs since 1997. We are located only 3 hours north of Las Vegas, NV and 2.5 hours south of SLC, UT. Whether you are looking for a pup, need some training, or just want to talk about bird dogs and hunting, we look forward to meeting you.
Dog training rates start at $800 per month we use bobwhite quail recall pens and wild-caught pigeons in our training program.

Meet our German Shorthaired Pointers.
DOB 12/07/2007 Pedigree
Luke is one of my favorite dogs. He is one of our male German Shorthaired Pointers. From Day one Luke has been a natural. He has pointed, retrieved, and honored with little or no training. He is one of those dogs that you can just hunt right out of the box! He never barks in the kennel is always calm and collective. Once you let him go in the field he switches into a bird finding machine. It's his natural abilities and ease of training that have helped us decided to keep him in our kennel and use for future breeding. Were excited to see how he preforms in NSTRA this year.
Lacie has been a surprise from day one. She is one of our female German Shorthaired Pointers. Lacie is full of stlye and class. She is one of the dogs that always turns clients heads when we go to the field. She not only looks good but can hunt with the best of them. She has never been formally whoa trained yet would hold her points until the gun was fired she has done this all naturally from day one. Lacie has that no give up attitude and would hunt all day every day if you would allow her to. Once your back at the truck she knows how to turn it off and be your companion. We love her natural abilities and were excited to see how she does pheasant hunting this next year. She had such a great year in South Dakota this year.
