We raise Gordon and Llewellin Setter dogs. Our female dogs range from 40 to 50 pounds with males running up to 60 pounds . They have strong pointing and bird finding abilities and hunt hard in the field. We currently have two Master Hunt test dogs. Both breeds are great family and house dogs.
Clearcut Dakota 2XBandit (Gordon Setter) received her Master Hunter at 1 year and 20 months. Probably the youngest female Master Hunter Gordon Setter. She has a lot of get up and go and will run circles around our other dogs. She loves attention and can’t wait to be in the field. She was bred in the spring 2014. She had beautiful pups in her last two breedings. At this time, we are taking orders in anticipation of another breeding in 2015. We kept a female, Ava< that has so many natural instincts like her mother. Another master hunter in the waiting.
Molly (Duchess Pearl Molly) is our Llewellin Setter Master Hunter. She is registered in the Field Dog Stud Book as a Llewellin Setter and also registered as an AKC English Setter. Molly is five years old. She hunts up a storm. She is probably the first female Llewellin Setter to receive a Master Hunter. Her last pups were a combination of black & white, tri’s, chestnuts and orange belton. We also have a new Llewellin stud dog in the making, Gunner. Gunner passed his Junior Hunt Tests this year. He is a very affectionate dog and is always willing to please.
We also had a Master Hunting dog, Yogi. Yogi passed on September 10, 2011. We have Rama from the same litter as Yogi. We received Rama at four years old. He also has great hunting abilities. Rama is also available for stud service. We are fortunate to be able to have Yogi’s sister (Boo Boo) breeding from the same stud and dam. BooBoo’s litter will be available in 2015. BooBoo passed her Junior Hunt Tests also this year.
Also we have two new dogs in our family, Ike and Alianna. Ike is three years old with some excellent hunting bloodlines. He is available for stud service. Alianna is 5 years old. She hasn’t been bred yet but we are looking forward to having pups with her and Ike.
Then there is Ava. She is our own pup from the 2013 breeding of Dakota and Wyndancer Diamond in the Ruff. She is one great hunting dog. She passed her Junior Hunt Tests with 4 tries. She is showing great possibilities. Of course she will not be bred until she is 3 years old.
All of our dogs we use for breeding or stud service have passed with hip screening.
You can’t go wrong with a Llewellin Setter or a Gordon Setter for hunting.
