Three AmigosWe produce pointing pups that are second to none anywhere in the country. Why? Our dogs have exceptional pedigrees and are proven performers and producers. As we mentioned before we are full time professionals and have trained hundreds of dogs. We have our dogs hunting in the fields all over the America including Alaska and Canada.

We want to make it clear on what we are not. We are not a puppy mill. We don't produce seventy five to hundred or more pups each year. Our goal is clear and simple. We consistently strive to produce a better dog! We are realizing the results of highly selective breeding over the past fourteen years. We believe you as an owner of one of our of dogs will realize the payoff for our efforts and hard work as well. Take a look at our puppy page for information about our pups on the ground and the potential breedings we are considering over the next year.


Another excellent PRG litter. Pups being pups!


Started dogs

JacksonConsistent with producing excellent pointing lab pups we also train several hand pick pups from our litters. We are professional trainers and that gives us a huge advantage with our puppies and started dogs. Why? All of our dogs are professionally trained. We have the experience and credentials to consistently produce results! In many cases we have trained several dogs within our dog's pedigrees. One example in our dog Lexi. We have trained four dogs in the first two generations of her pedigree. We have titled all of the dogs at the highest level in the American Pointing Lab Association. Those four dogs are all 4XGMPR's. No other dog in the country has a pedigree like this! There are high level titles on these dog in the AKC and HRC as well. One of these dogs in the pedigree HRCH 4XGMPR, Bar None' Snake River Otter MH QAA is also the first 4X GMPR to be inducted into the APLA Hall of Fame. We always keep a pup or two from all of our breedings to train. Why to know first hand what kind of dogs we are producing. This can a be a real benefit for us and anyone that is interested in what we have to offer. We can speak from experience! Take a look at our Started Dog page for more information on the dogs we currently have available and the dogs we are currently training.
