Ben has been handling and training hunting dogs for more than 20 years. When it's not hunting season, more often than not we are working dogs on live birds, scent tracking and retrieving drills. If you need help with polishing off your dogs hunting skills, brushing up for the season, or are interested in the benefits of a fully trained / started or finished bird dog, get in touch!
We love to talk dogs, training and hunting. We can discuss what is right for you, what we specialize in, and whether or not it's the right fit.
R.R.K German Shorthaired Pointers
Ben, Alicia & Reuben (that's us) are avid outdoors people and have a love for wild places and creatures. Most typically this passion is explored with our four legged friends.
While great hunting dogs are purpose bred to be skilled trackers and retrievers, they transcend those roles by becoming partners in the hunt, fixtures in our homes, and companions in our hearts.
The joy of hunting becomes as much about watching them perform and work with us, as it is about anything else.
To see a great hunting dog pursue game, is to witness true passion, and purpose built performance. They can inspire us to find and do the same in our short lives.
German Shorthaired Pointers were originally bred to be the true Versatile Hunting Dog. We can go on and on about what versatile means. Let's keep it short:
Tracking, Pointing, Retrieving, Swimming, Shed Hunting, Dog Sledding, Upland Birds, Waterfowl, Fur bearers, Large Game, Couch Cuddle Buddies and Fireside companions. They do it all, and they do it well.
Ben has been hunting and fishing since diapers. Blessed to be a part of our natural world, and to be born into a supporting outdoors family; he has been pursuing wild birds and working with hunting dogs for over 25 years. Hunting the wild places of the Pacific NW in Oregon, Idaho and Washington. An exposure to Labs, Vizslas, Weimaraners, Pointers, Wire Hairs, Setters, Brittany's, Goldens, and all of the rest, we've found that German Shorthaired Pointers are the best of the best.
Alicia grew up in the beautiful Puget Sound, with a passion for the water and the mountains, and catching big fish. She has been bird hunting for nearly 10 years now; and loves the dog work as much as any of us. With a great appreciation for the dogs efforts, they may just hunt harder for her than anyone else!
Reuben is our newest Human Pack Member.
He looks forward to chewing and drooling on puppies when we have them; and loves riding on, cuddling with and tugging the ears of all of our big dogs. Someday soon, he may choose to help us train and hunt these dogs.
Because of the places, creatures, company and dogs; wild bird hunting is our favorite of favorites. With all of the talents that these dogs possess and can excel at, ours are specifically bred to hunt the wild birds of Rugged North America. Their hard charging drive will beat the thick cover of a Pheasant draw, ousting roosters from the toughest brush. Their great endurance will range the toughest Chukar slopes for days on end. The ability and drive to track will find your lost game and fill your bags. Endless persistence will sniff out the smallest of quail and the loneliest of grouse. And an eagerness to please will have them retrieving ducks and geese next to the most seasoned waterfowl dogs.
At the end of a good, hard day of 'work'; they will curl up next to you on the couch or at your feet by the fire, never mind the kids still tugging on their ears and tails.
This is just a little of why we love these dogs.
In the hunt?
We love to talk hunting dogs, and all things about them!
Have questions? We look forward to hearing from you.
Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
