Brass GSP in for Training

Brass GSP in for Training

Brass is a Male German Shorthair Pointer that we bred in the fall of 2013 he has come back to us for bird dog training. For the past week we have been working on his field exposure training and his bird introduction training. Here he is working of his first birds showing that he has been given the right genetics. His natural pointing ability makes his training go so much faster and easier. It always gets my excited when I seen a young dog stick a solid point and hold it while you walk around for a photo. We are excited to see some of our stud dog Vig’s traits being passed down to his offspring.

Dog Training Tools

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

Gun X HolstersUsing quality training equipment helps make quality bird dogs. This is one of my favorite tools that I use on a daily basis. The Gun X 209 Primer Blank Gun. It has been one of the most reliable blank pistols I have ever seen. The holster was built for me from Kent Forbush from Snow Canyon Outfitters¬†. Kent makes the best quality leather products on the market. He builds them to last and last they do. This holster fits the gun today just like it did the day I bought it over 4 years ago. If your looking for great leather products for dog training or horsemanship you won’t find better than Snow Canyon Outfitters. Gun X produces one of the most reliable Blank Pistols on the market we recommend both.

Keg Creek Bred Female

Keg Creek Bred Female

Jazz is a two year old GSP Female out of the Keg Creek Kennels. Keg Creek Kennels is raising some great competing dogs and field bred dogs with lots of drive with style. Jass is showing so great advancement in here training the past few moths she is becoming more mature and holding her points nicely. She has so much bird drive it’s been a little difficult getting her mind to stop long enough and think hold point until Released. She is going to make a great foot hunting companion.

Top Gun Sir Henry got to come out and teach some young dogs how to hunt this week. It sure was fun to show him off to visiting clients and he showed the young puppies how to hold point until released for the retrieve. He sure is an awesome dog to hunt with and we are excited about the genetics that he brings to our kennel.

Starting Brittany Puppies

Starting Brittany Puppies

There is nothing funner that getting two fresh chubby puppies to come out and spend a few hours with us out to the training grounds. These two puppies got some exposure training today. They got to smell birds, play with other dogs, explore the pond, the ditch, the barbwire fence, the grass, weeds and the list goes on. We start taking young puppies like these on walks with us at least a couple of times a week. Allowing them to gain confidence and smell everything they can. Making these trips fun and enjoyable makes there formal training so much easier in the end.

German Shorthaired Pointer in training

This 1 year old German Shorthaired Pointer came into our kennel a few days ago. He is a pup we bred from the Dozer X Zoey litter last year. This was the first bird he smelt out to the training grounds and was one of only a few he has ever worked in his life. He is going to make a fine gun dog. Holding a strong point from day one this guy has some natural instinct that will make his training go so much better.

We are a full time Training Facility

Full time training Facility

Training full time

I often tell people that we train all breeds of bird dogs. With our focus being on the pointing breeds. They act surprised when I make this statement I think that believe we only train German Shorthaired Pointers. I have to remind them we started as a full time training facility and we train over a 100 dogs a year. We started breeding dogs because we became so frustrated with the dogs we where getting in for training more that half didn’t want to point or retrieve. There is no sense in owing a bird dog if it wont even do what it’s bred to do. This is what lead us to start breeding a more natural dog one that had the ability to hunt birds and retrieve them. Funny you might think there are a lot of bird dogs bred out there that don’t hunt?
