Located in southwestern Montana, we usually have 2 litters of field champion sired English Springer Spaniel puppies a year. Our parents are hips, eyes, DNA screened prior to breeding and our puppies eyes are checked by an ACVO specialist prior to placement. Our Springers are used as working gun dogs on wild birds during the hunting season and many of them also compete in various AKC field and companion dog performance events throughout the year. Click on the above link to meet our dogs and see what breedings we have planned. We use a screening application and Hellfire puppies are selectively placed.

Montana does not have a permanent veterinary ophthalmologist specialist. Dr Roberts a travelling CERF veterinarian from Loveland, CO brings much needed eye clinics to Montana several times a year. Visit his website for the current schedule.
We highly recommend Dr Milan Hess after two successful surgical AI procedures. She also offers semen collection and CLONE cryo preservation. Located in Littleton, Colorado but well worth the effort and travel! We also recommend CANINE GENETIC RESERVE as Dr Heather Steyn is an excellent canine reproductive specialist in Fort Collins, Colorado offering AKC certified semen collection, cryo preservation and surgical procedures for reputable breeders. Plus, her attention to detail and customer relationship is awesome.
This is one of my favorite web sites! Look up Obedience, Rally and Agility scores by owner, dog name, AKC Number or Breed.

Located in Wisconsin, this is the only place we will ever order our gamebird chicks from again. Not only does every chick arrive alive, but their customer service to book an order is excellent and they back up every chick they sell. Definitely worth the extra bucks to buy from real professionals. They also have some amazing pheasant recipes. An A+ resource.
