Lacy has been working with all my dogs (English Cockers, English Setters, & German Shorthaired Pointers). You can rest assured knowing that not only will your dog receive the best of care in Lacy’s very capable hands, but they will become a well-rounded obedient member of your family once they have been trained with her minimal force methods; whether it be a hunting dog or simple obedience work. Her honesty, integrality, and dependability are things one looks for but are hard to find. My experience with Lacy has been joyful, she has been a pleasure to work with for years

I love my GSP that I got from Lacy, She picked out a puppy from the litter 6 years ago that was perfect for us and we could not be happier with him. He is such a loving loyal boy and an amazing hunter. I don't know what we would ever do without him. We will never get a GSP anywhere else. Lacy knows what she is talking about when she talks about her dogs.

I am on my 3rd German Shorthair from A-La-Round and there is no doubt all my German Shorthaired Pointers will be coming from here! I obtained a CGC title on my "E" litter dog as well as AKC Conformation points and "Best of Breed" wins! my latest "F" litter pup has a go with the flow laid back tempermant that is to die for. I am always asked why my dogs are so laid back and easy going, my answer is that it is in the genes!!!! I highly recommend getting your next GSP from Lacy.

Lacy is very wise when it comes to her dogs and what goes into her litters. We got our puppy from her 5 years ago and he is all we could have wanted and then some! She picked out the perfect dog for us and we are more than thrilled to have him in our home and out in the fields hunting! He is by far an amazing bird dog and wonderful companion.

My "E" pup is doing wonderful. A natural on birds and a fast learner when it came to basic obedience. He is great in the house and loves to be with me. I highly recommended an A-La-Round GSP for your first or next GSP!

Lacy has been awesome to work with from the very beginning. We have a solid black male we named Jake who will be a year old this month (Nov. 2011) He definitely has the hunter instinct, and I suspect that with more experience he will be outstanding. At home, he is a lover and has a great temperment. We are always getting compliments on what a beautiful dog he is as well. I would highly recommend A-La-Round Kennels to anyone considering a German Shorthair!

Reagan (Emma), has fit into our home wonderfully. Her and Zala have been getting quite the work-outs tearing around the yard. I love the fact that when we call her, she comes running. We have not experience any anxiety from her when we leave to go to work. We took her to our vet and he said she was a very healthy, good-looking dog.

We are so thankful to have had the chance to add and "E" pup to our home.

Our solid liver dog we gotfrom your "E" litter is a fixture in our home. Our daughter and her are attached at the hip and we could't be more pleased with her.

I obtained Mazey as a started dog after my daughter and son-in-law purchased their puppy Burke from Lacy.

Mazey has had some really good points and bird finds since then. In particular, this one morning we were in tall marsh grass when I suddenly couldn’t find her. I turned on her beeper and then turned it off. She was about 15 yards behind me. So I walked back and still couldn’t find her. I then turned on her beeper and left it on. Turns out I walked past her about three feet to one side. Never flushed the bird. She was rock solid pointing. So I started to try and flush the bird. I walked all around and nothing flushed so then I bent over and moved the weeds with my hand so I could see better. I saw where her head was pointed and moved about two feet in that direction and a hen flushed. It was amazing.

I am learning to read her better. I am starting to be able to tell when she is on a bird and when I need to follow her cause the bird is running. She flushed some a ways away because I didn’t follow.

Burke has proved to be a very tenacious bird finder rooting them out of really heavy cover. This one morning we thought he was just messing around, because he does that sometimes, when he flushed a rooster. He spent about 3-4 minutes in one small area before that bird flushed.

We can't even remember how we ever hunted without these two amazing dogs. They are such great house companions yet are bird machines in the field.

I have not purchased a dog from A-La-Round Kennels but, Lacy has worked with my over active GSP and helped out my family when we needed it. Lacy is a very caring person who does anything she can for the breed she loves. I highly recommend her for training as she helped to cure the obsessive issues our boy had.

She has a great home environment suited to the dogs she cares for. It is very clean and I would send my dog back to be boarded again in a heartbeat.

I cannot say enough about how well Lacy treats her own dogs as well as the dogs she works with and boards.

Phantom is doing great she is really adjusting to life on the farm - chasing birds like a maniac and laying on the couch in her down time. She loves chasing those birds sometimes she has a hard time coming back but she always does after the bird flies away too far for her to run after. She is attached at my hip most of the time though.

She is exactly what you said she would be and just what I was looking for.

Chance is better than I ever anticipated a dog could be....we love him so much. He is a great watch dog and loves to play fetch. Thanks for this wonderful boy!

We did okay hunting, came home with 12 and put up just over 100 birds for 3 days worth of hunting not to bad considering all the crops where still in the fields and had to hunt in the rain for the first 2 days. Couldn't believe how wet it was down there and was very surprised to see some green in the corn yet. Would like to go out again before the season is over with and get the dogs out working again. Kolby & Desi did fantastic; I just get a little frustrated when the birds run instead of holding tight or they get up about 200 yards away and laugh at you as they fly away but that's the joy of pheasant hunting.

Desi is a great member of our family.

Ruger is wonderful and doing very well with his invisible fence. Inclosed are just a few photos from the last couple of months! He is weighing in at 75 lbs. right now and LOVES treats boy it didnt take him long to figure out when he gets those. He follows me all over the house and loves Brians son thats in Brookings college and comes home weekends. He does alot of the hunting with him because he has more time than Brian. He is just the best boy ever and quick learner too.

Cash was very easy to train. We shot a lot of sharptail grouse, hungarian partridge, and pheasants over him last year. Cash had another good winter in south Texas barking at the dogs on the golf carts that when by our home on the golf course. Cash enjoys taking naps next to his older brother Max.

I had a GREAT experience with A-La-Round Kennels! Very professional and courteous! I highly recommend this breeder for the highest level of satisfaction!

I have been acquainted with A-La-Round Kennels for just shy of a decade and I know from personal experience that they have a well kept, clean, caring facility that exceeds any expectations anyone could have. The puppies are well cared for from the day they are conceived. At the appropriate times they are socialized, and exposed to birds, water, cars, and life experiences just as you should hope for. They are fed nutritious food, and receive proper vet care. Breedings are meticulously selected with hunting ability, form, health and temperament in mind. I have gotten 2 puppies from A-La-Round and both have been incredible companions. A-La-Round dogs exceed at home and in the field, show ring, and beyond. I highly recommend obtaining your next field, conformation, agility, therapy, rally, and/or obedience etc. dog from someone who is qualified in producing quality puppies and I feel honored to say I have and always will choose dogs from A-La-Round.
