Of course you can use it as a
testimonial. If anyone ever needs a referral, please have them
contact me. His coat is so shiny because he gets a Vitamin E gel cap
with his food every day, PLUS, he gets to sleep with me on a soft, (very
expensive) down comforter every night. (At least that's what Maureen says
is the cause for the shiny coat)
I've enclosed 2 photos...one from the
night we picked him up at the airport in Baltimore...the other, at our
house with Blu...he sure has grown, hasn't he?
Maureen booked me a
hunting trip in NJ, and it will be Cisco's first time hunting woodcock
. I can't wait to see him in action...if you'd like, I'll send
you some pics from our hunt.
One more thing. I'm still working on
my buddy, who wanted a dog. He's going with me on this trip, so
maybe when he sees what Cisco can do, it will help make up his mind.
Best to you all for the New Year. Tom

Werth here, took Gunner hunting yesterday, he
was a real "pro bowler". He's a stud! Just
wanted to pass this picture along. What a dog,
he is a family favorite and lives like a king.
We treat him really good and love him a lot. He
receives the best food n resides along 4 fenced
in acres in northern Virginia that buts up to
the Potomac river and great falls national
park/forest. He runs it!! Can't thank you
enough, my wife and my 2 boys and I just wasn't
to say thanks, he's the best.
In light of their birthday I was checking out
your website and saw the photos of Atlas. Here
are a couple pictures of his brother Otis....not
sure what his name was before I got him but he
was the runt and he is now about 42lbs. Just a
little guy but makes up for it with speed and
athleticism. he's the fastest dog around. We
live in the mountains in Colorado and he sure
does love his daily hikes and definitely looking
forward to summer for the longer days. We don't
hunt but the description you give of Atlas on
your website could be given for Otis too....housebreaking
him was unbelievably easy. He's an awesome dog
and I thought you might like an update so.....
Have a good day.
Hi Kirby - I purchased Belle from you last
spring through my agent Dan Mar. We were looking
for brood bitch potential, as well as a nice
dog. Boy, did we ever get both!
Her first litter by my stud dog Duke is
incredible, a significant increase from his
prior litter, which was really good, by the way.
Belle was great for a first time mom - all five
pups were healthy and maintained that through
weaning. She was good with people around the
Her second litter by Duke is coming in late
March, and I already have two paid deposits for
pups, both buyers having seen Duke and Belle,
plus two females at age five months.
Thanks for allowing me to get such a good dog,
Kirby! You can still take me up on that
"seller's special" Dan offered you for a pup!
The picture above is of a four-week old female
Take care - Jim Jorgensen
Jim Riley here. Just short of two years ago I
bought Jewell (AKA Marnie: Sire Triple Shots
Royal Flush, Dam LB's Ohio Ain't That A Shame)
from you. I want to report that she IS, indeed,
a jewell! In the off season she gets to train
three mornings per week and during the season we
make two to four trips to the Midwest for
pheasant and hunt quail a couple of days per
week here in AZ. She is the perfect hunting
companion and a great house pet as well.
It is a small world...two weeks ago I was
hunting in Plainville with City Attorney Jerry
Smetana and Judge Doug Bigge and they both knew
you or knew of you. And just yesterday I was

This is from last weekend's NATHA tournament, it
was my first outing with TJ AKA Capital Creeks
Roscoe, whom I purchased from you a couple of
months back. I thought you would like to see how
well he did. He is adjusting great to his new
home and has been an absolute blast to hunt
with. Looking forward to more competitions with
him this year.
Kirby. This a few pics of Decker. Don’t be
frowning on me because his tail isn’t 12:00.
LOL! That’s my fault, it would be if I got in
there and made him. He’s doing excellent.
Hunting open fields or some pretty thick stuff,
he’s finding the quail, holding his points,
finding dead birds and brings them right to me.
I haven’t hunted him with another dog yet but
when I tell him to whoa, he stops. Decker and me
found 3 small coveys this past Friday on Game
Management land. We went back to my truck for a
water break and some horse riders came through
so I left, went into town, then went back, and
guess what! I turned Decker back out and he
immediately starting finding the singles. Even
the ones that were buried up in thick brush. I
tell you, his tongue or the side of his mouth
even started bleeding because he was hunting so
hard in the thick stuff. I let him down with my
poor shooting quite a few times that day. He
would start hunting dead and I’d have to call
him off. It was a little funny because I felt
like he’d look at me like he was saying, WHAT
THE H - - -!!! I’m hunting my tail off and you
can’t hit the
d - - - birds??? Had his shots updated and gave
him his meds at the first of Feb. He’s going to
be a great hunting dog/friend to me for many
years to come. I’m really proud of him. Tell any
potential buyers of yours that they can call or
text me anytime with any questions. My new
number is 864-934-7980. You can post anything
about Decker you’d like on your web page if you
I just wanted to let you how much myself and my
family love the dog I got from you a couple
years ago. His name was Max and was a Bl&Wh
shorthair. He is a hunters dreams with the way
he finds birds. His nose is amazing and if you
knock it down he will find it and bring it back.
I just recently went on a hunt with him on new
years eve and shot 18 roosters. I have a great
picture I can send you if you have a cell phone.
The snow here has slowed our hunting but Max
will go through the snow no matter how deep. He
has a none stop motor and his drive to hunt is
like none other. What really makes him special
is not what he does in the field, but what he
does at home. He has a personality and is a
member of the family. He runs loose around the
farm and I never have to worry cause he will
only leave the farm if he's with a family
member. My kids can do anything with him and he
keeps a close watch over them when they are
outside. He still acts like a pup chasing
sparrows and pigeons around the farm and barn
swallows in the summer and of coarse he knows
what cats he can make run. Never hurts them just
wants to play all the time. He comes in the
house from time to time and you never know he is
in there cause he is so good. No dog is perfect
but, In our eyes Max is - never dreamed I could
find a dog like him!!!!!
Thanks so much, Ron Kelm (Markesan,Wisconsin)
P.S. I have shot over a 100 birds a season over
him since his arrival
Tbone is doing great. Thanks again.
Bang is doing great up here in Alaska! This past
weekend we went on a trip for 3 days and he got
21 open water retrieves with no problems at
all... He is absolutely the exact waterdog I was
looking for... He even retrieved 4 Greater
Canada Geese directly to the hand that were 13
lbs a piece... Thank you so much for your great
communication.. Our transaction between Kansas
and Alaska went incredibly smooth and I would
highly recommend you to any of my friends for
future purchases! Here are some pics of Bang and
I with some of our success so far this season..
Wanted to say thank you for the wonderful
pointer we purchased from you. He has mastered
here by voice, hand, and whistle. He is 99
percent on whoa and 99 percent on heal. We love
him to death and will be looking for a female

wanted to let you know how well Jeb is adjusting
to us and being an inside dog. He has become an
active part of our family. He gets to go with us
everywhere. And he as been duck hunting this
past week. We ALL are having lots of fun. Just
wanted to send you this shot. Alan took him this
morning and killed 28 over him. He retrieved all
but three....and they were because they fell
right infront of him.
Thought I'd write a short note to say Hi, and
let you know how Cheech is doing. I've attached
some photo's from some of our training sessions
along with some hunt photo's taken during his
first Pheasant season. (It was also the 1st hunt
for the kids shown in some of the photo's. Youth
Hunt Day [11/01/08] here in NJ and together with
Cheech, all had a great day.)
I thought the wily birds might be too much for
him being so young, but I was wrong. My other
Pointer Barb was a great teacher, and Cheech was
an eager learner. Anyway, we managed and Cheech
did a great job. He just kept getting better and
better as the season progressed.
I've made contact with a local chapter of the
American Field and have made plans to get Cheech
started in Walking Trials. Hopefully we will
find some Shoot trials for him as well. Several
friends have experience on the trial circuit and
have been advising me as to all that will be
required of him. I will be starting the "Master"
level (steady to Wing & Shot) of his training
beginning this March or April. I think he's now
ready, but will have to assess (or re-assess) as
top trainer of pointing dogs by the name of Dom
Preite has agreed to work with me in his
training by helping to train me, so that I will
be better at teaching Cheech. He will also act
as an impartial judge as we proceed. I only wish
you could see him. He's everything I hoped for.
He's turned out to be a great little guy, except
for his thinking my arm chair was really meant
for him, and perhaps I would be more comfortable
on the floor. Will let you know how he does. I
really want him for my hunting partner, and will
not sacrifice those natural abilities and
desires to please which keep him close, to make
a Field Trialer out of him. But, he's so good at
running the hedge rows and covering ground (if
given the OK) that he deserves a chance. He'll

buying a dog over the internet is a scary
proposition. But I have to say that this
purchase of a 25 lb Brittany named TY was one of
the best choices I have ever made. (With your
Guidance of course) He is faster than
lightening, (my brother has nicknamed him
ricochet rabbit) his nose is fantastic and he
retrieves as well as my Black Labrador. You had
mentioned that he was poor on retrieving when I
bought him. And you were right in the beginning.
But after the 1st 2 weekends afield he was tired
of letting the labs take the glory.
After 2 months and some 200 plus birds shot over
him, he has really come into his own. I have
several guys at the club asking where I got him
and how to get in touch with you. Customers are
on the way.
You never promised me he was house trained,, so
I still have that hurdle to jump. (I have to get
this done, buying my wife flowers for each
accident is getting expensive) But as smart as
he is I feel it will not take long. I will
attach 2 pictures of the little guy for you to
post on your testimonials. 1st while he is on
point. (He will hold forever, and by the way he
does honor the other dog’s point – which you
were not sure of at the time) The 2nd picture
was taken when I have had the lab sit and let Ty
take the sole honor of the retrieve. So here is
a 25 lb Brittany retrieving a 5 lb Rooster that
is still alive and kicking.

not a 19 year old 1st time dog buyer. I am 59

I'm sending a couple of pictures that
are representative of the hunting season
I've enjoyed with my GSP I purchased
from you. You called her Gabby, but we
renamed her Maggie.
This fall/winter, we've hunted Sharptail
grouse and pheasants in Idaho, pheasants
in South Dakota, Kansas and Missouri and
pheasants and quail last week in the
panhandle of Oklahoma.
She quickly assimilated into our family
and she is a sweetheart in the house and
around the family but is a real hot bird
dog in the field. Even though she's only
about 20 months old, I never hunted with
a dog this season (professional
guide-owned or otherwise) that
out-hunted Maggie. She always made more
points and retrieved more birds than the
other dogs. Although expensive, she's
been worth the price and then some and
her best years are still ahead (although
it's hard to imagine she'll get any
The picture on the right is from our
first day of hunting in South Dakota and
we had enough guys to justify the number
of birds in the picture (it took less
than 2 hours to hit our limit).
I thought that you might want to get a
little progress report on Gunner
and Dot. They have adapted pretty well
to southern living. My son, John really
took to working with the dogs, and we
had a pretty good season after we got
back last fall. While we have to mostly
do release birds, we did get them into a
few wild coveys as well. We are working
on habitat really hard and hope to
develop an early release program on some
of our property by next year. We are
getting more wild birds but they have a
lot going against them, predators
Dot and Gunner both worked real well for
us. Gunner is a trip. He will chase a
tennis ball for hours if you will throw
it for him. She is the most athletic dog
that I have ever had. Scared Kathy to
death the first time she jumped through
the window into the barn room. My son
John wants to breed her to a pit bull to
make speedy bay dogs for hog hunting.
That's a popular cross down here for hog
hunting because the dogs don't foot
trail or bark on trail. Kathy won't hear
of it. She thinks that it would be like
marrying your daughter off to some
ill-bred red neck.
Anyway, I hope that the bird dog market
is going well and that you have a good
hunting season. We are thoroughly
enjoying Gunner and Dot and hope to see
you again sometime.

could have hoped for.

husbands lap and in her favorite chair.
She loves sleeping in that chair.
Another photo is her lying on my sons
bed. another one is her hunting with my
husband and the last is her new
companion, the white lab, Will. Will and
Ginger get along great, they play all
the time with each other. Ginger is the
alpha dog without a doubt. She hunts
great. My husband took her out a few
days ago with some friends and she found
9 of the 10 birds. She was surprised
when she got her first pheasant that
She's a great dog. Use us as a reference

and I can't recall ever hunting in shhort sleeves in Jan. and Feb.
Noble has a large group of 10 people to work for this coming Friday.

Shorthair) on her latest hunt. We took her to

is an awesome dog. We wouldn't mind coming out
your way next year and do some hunting. This was

are some pics of the chukar hunt. I have moved
back to Nevada. We ended up with 32 birds out of
the three of us. The pup is great this was his
first trip at 7 1/2 months and he had 9
retrieves and 4 good points. He works very close
and listens great. He is a little tired we had a
total of 14 hours hunting this weekend and going
for quail on Thursday and chukar again this
weekend. He will be hunted every weekend until
Jan 31rst so he should be a pretty seasoned bird
dog by next year. Also minimal work in training
him he was very easy. I'm going to find someone
that will go and take pictures most my buddies
have to hold a gun, but I will get you some good
pics of him on point. I will probably be looking
at another pup in 2006 so I can hunt 2 dogs.
Take care and thanks a lot,
He hunts dead very well, I just have to tickle
him slightly with the collar once and a while
and he does great. He does even better the more
I praise him. He has also learned that when the
beeper collar goes off on my other dog that
there are birds and stops to honor. He was
honoring at one point from over 75 yds. away and
held until shots were fired. He is a really nice
dog and is just going to get better. I thought
you mingh like to see the pictures I got of him
this weekend on our hunting trip. I am very
happy with him.
Thought you would like to see a pic of the dogs
after they got to Texas. Thank you very much.

Jayco's first day in the field with me. We
went out this morning and he made 5 solid
points, and two super retrieves. He's adapted to
his new home well, and seems really happy! I
too, am happy!! He's going to work out great,
and be a good companion and hunting dog!!
Once again, I would like to thank you for all of
your help, and to tell you that it is greatly
appreciated among the members of our family. The
puppy is so laid back and great around the house
that half of the time you wouldn't know he's
around. I'm sure he will make a fine hunting dog
with the way he watches the birds and the
butterflies in the yard. He's also quite
charming with his great personality and
good looks, and very intelligent. He picks
things up quick and will be easy to train. I
have attached some photos of him laying around
the house in his "laid back" mood for you. I
will be sure to recommend you to anyone who is
interested in purchasing a new bird dog. Thanks
again, we'll keep in touch.

I had to send you a quick note about Rowdy…..
If you don't remember, I have a lab (Jezzy) that
has been my pride and joy.
Last weekend, I took her to a field trial where
shooting quail was part of the competition.
I also took Rowdy along on the trip because I
haven't had the opportunity to
work with him on birds as of yet and was hoping
to get the chance to do so.
Before the competition started, Rowdy was
running and playing with all of the retrievers.
He, like them, enjoys the water a great deal.
So, he was jumping in the ponds just like the
While he was not as graceful of a swimmer as the
labs, he sure beat them for endurance (it was

everyone at the field trial new that someone had
shooting at the quail. He stood frozen for
almost 5 minutes while everyone at the shoot
started watching him
and gathered around and talked about his point.
Finally, one of the guys at the shoot sent his
big chocolate lab into the weeds to get the
As the weeds were pretty thick and prickly, the

that Rowdy got
tired of all of these amateur dogs and reached
in the weeds and pulled it out.I was very
impressed with his
performance and am happy that one of the guys at
the field trial had a camera so that I have a
picture of Rowdy's
first point for me. I then brought some of the
extra quail home and took Rowdy out work a
little on them and he
did excellent. The only problem that developed
is my disappointment that hunting season is
still so far off.
Thanks for the advice in selecting my dog……You
did very well by me.

Bonnie's yard training and "bonding" has

Hi Kirby, just wanted to drop you a note to
let you know what a great dog Macey turned out
to be. I swear she just intinctively knew
exactly what to do with running patterns and
finding grouse. Smart dog that really wants to
please.... great nose too. I have already
killed four grouse over her with my falcon.
Attached is a picture of a boomer sage grouse I
just caught today over her with my falcon. I am
very pleased and just wanted to thank you for
getting me such a nice pointer. Hope all is well
with you and have a great season.

Sport holds points forever and his nose is

Kirby: I want to thank you and tell you
about Dozer. My son and I picked him up in early
August and have been happy ever since. Dozer is
a wonderful dog. He is so good natured and just
loves to hunt. He wants to please us all the
time. He does a great job finding birds.
Last year while quail hunting, we killed seven
birds from one covey. We found ZERO! The past
two years we have had rain and the weeds are at
least 6 feet tall and extremely thick. I decided
I didn't want to lose so many birds so I started
looking for a hunting retreiver. Dozer is
certainly the one. During dove season, my son
had Dozer where he was huntin and I was about a
mile away. I lost 4 of the first 6 birds I shot.
I got Dozer and didn't lose another bird all
day. During the 11 days I hunted dove, I only
lost 1 bird with Dozer hunting with me. He is a
wonderful dog, and I am looking forward to duck
and quail hunting with him.
I now recommend to everyone they call Outback
Kennels for hunting dogs. Thank you for Dozer! I
am attaching a picture with Dozer and a dove.

we like. As I think Bonnie likes them all. I
don't know for sure what the dog did to receive
1st place? as for Bonnie she pointed and

there was no shooting in the open puppy, Fred
flushed the birds and she chased then caught
them and retrieved them. Also, I really think
she was the best looking dog there. She is so
pretty and just such a nice dog, we love her
very much and I hope you know what a good home
your pup came to. She is a great dog.

I just wanted you to know what a wonderful dog
Dutchess has been. I have to be honest with
you.....we were a little worried about buying
her from you over the net....but she came into
our family and fit right in. At the moment
Dutchess and Nick are in training together and
you should see them hunt together! Wow!!!!!
Thank you for being patient with us during our
search for the "perfect" dog; one that would fit
with our family( in the house), get along with
our other dogs, and get out there and hunt like
she does.. Thank you and I will send you
pictures soon of them hunting in the field.
Attached is a new pic of Kansas. He's doing
great! Loves the water! Swam out in the river
right along Briar too. Went pretty far. Whistled
them back and came right away. He loves to
retrieve! I "play" retrieve with him in the
living room for a few minutes every other day
and he loves it! When I take him outside he
retrieves just as nice. Even in the water. Had
him out in the field a couple of times to walk
him in on some quail. He's doing very well. Not
afraid of the blank pistol. I shoot it at a
distance while he has his nose into the birds.
It'll be fun when he starts to scent point. He's
easy to work with. I'm not letting him chase the
birds. Don't want to start letting him do a
habit that I will then want to stop. He's very
sweet and loving. He's a good little boy! I have
him signed up for beginner obedience class
starting next week.
