The great advantage to purchasing a Started dog is that you get to see exactly how well the dog can hunt, how obedient it is, and it's disposition towards people, before you buy it.

Dogs that we sell as Started Pups have been through our Puppy Training Program.  That program focuses on obedience training and introduction to the gun, birds and water.  Give us a call if you are interested in this option from one of our upcoming breedings or current litters.

Once you've hunted with a trained dog, you won't want to hunt with anything else!
