Our goal at Outlander is to breed a dog that anyone can take into the field and have the "best hunting partner of their life." We also strive to breed a dog that will be strong in desire, yet cooperative enough where they can be owner handled and trained to compete in bird dog tests such as AKC, NAVHDA or NSTRA among others.
At Outlander, one should be able to "reach into the whelping box and pull out a great puppy with their eyes shut." These are quiet dogs in the home and fired up hunting machines in the field. All pups naturally point, honor and retrieve. All pups also take well to training (biddability) and have excellent work ethics.
At Outlander, the emphasis is on "versatile." We fully guarantee our puppies and socialize them strongly with people, the field, water, and birds.
Our breeding program is based on the great bitch VC Indian Brook's Espresso, MH: "Mazzy." Genetically, Mazzy was a line-bred Hustler grand-daughter possessing and passing on the phenotype of the Wildburg dogs. As such, she was a high drive, biddable and cooperative bird dog with every fiber of her being and has had the great gift of being able to pass this on consistently.
