Such a great experience working with Ben. My pup Tank was a natural, stong point,and retrieve without training. I have hunted behind tons of dogs and never expected Tank to be hunting at 41/2 months old! RRK dogs are something special

Hank is an absolute stud!
I can't believe how hard he wants to go at his young age. Can't wait to see what he turns into.
I can't thank you guys enough for an awesome dog! My buddy and I went again today and shot two limits of ducks and three more roosters. Hank had an awesome 100 yard recovery on a crippled bird. He's doing awesome!

First day with Buckwheat went great! He likes to be held for his nap but then I put him down on the dog bed once he’s out. He’s eating great! Pooping and peeing just fine. He already knows where the water is at. First night in the kennel he cried BUT NO pee or poop. He runs to our back door and cries to be let out and immediately goes potty!!! Only a couple accidents where he got lost in the kitchen (there’s an island). He comes really well when we clap. I can’t whistle so I told Jared we have to clap and call his name for now lol
Just had our first vet apt doc says he is a stellar looking animal! Everything is going great! Buckwheat is a muscular beast! He is definitely a little terrorist in the house but he is doing so great and we’re loving every minute of it!

Hey Ben and Alicia! Just wanted to wish you both a very happy Thanksgiving! We hope you’re doing well and enjoying hunting season, we sure are! Gus is doing amazing. He is so smart, loves everyone, and is picking up hunting incredibly quickly (just like everything else we’ve taught him). Not to gush too much over him, but he’s definitely the best behaved 5 month old GSP we’ve ever seen. Thank you guys for breeding such great dogs, we are truly grateful. Below are some of our favorite pics and videos from the last few weeks. Happy Thanksgiving!

Ben and Alicia were wonderful to deal with and their love for the dogs is evident. They truly take the time to ensure that each dog goes to a good and loving home.

Ben and Alicia are great stewards of the GSP Breed and there dogs are proof of it!
Sara and I were extremely happy with the process of picking the right pup for us and Ben made it a very seamless transition.
Being that we are from So. Cal. He even accommodated FaceTime puppy interviews, lol, saving us a lot of money in travel.
Thank you Ben and Alicia!

We did find a dog last spring and Brook rely enjoys her. She is all white with a couple spots and we call her Aimee. We had an epic hunting season, Brook excelled being the lead dog. With the passing of my two older dogs she came into her own and hunted like a champion. We went to South Dakota and shot 60 rooster over her and the new pup. In Washington I hunted 20 days and shot another 70 over the two dogs. Her last retrieve in the Palouse was spectacular. I winged a rooster over creek and Brook took off after it, she came across the scent and a half mile later she came back along a railroad bed with the bird in her mouth. I was very proud and I know that is what you want to hear as the breeder. We are talking about maybe getting a 3rd dog, but not sure if we want to go with one this soon. Definitely keep me in the loop. If I get one I would like a female. Are you planning on having them old enough to hunt this year?
Thanks for reaching out to me, I love Brook, she is a wonderful dog and excellent hunter!
***Borrowed from Steve's email. I love hearing his updates; and am always envious of the number of roosters he and his dogs see!***

Thanks for your email. Sorry in our delay to get back to you since we just got back from Mexico (fun little January trip). Jamie and I decided that we are not going to get a puppy this year. We will probably think about another puppy in the future so please let us know if you have another litter.
I was walking Hank yesterday and someone commented on him and how he was looking for another GSP. I told him your name so he might contact you. He was a nice guy that hunted and said 'GSPs can out hunt labs everyday.' He has one GSP but is getting older and wants to get a puppy.
I do have to say that Hank is the best dog we have ever had. He is a good hunter of course but is also such a great dog to have around. All of our friends love him especially the kids. For being 70 lbs he really is gentle. Thanks for letting us have him!
I cannot wait to see pics of the new puppies! Hope all is well!
