We would like to introduce our Team, two Spinone Italiano and a Sussex Spaniel. Our team are hunters and trained throughout the summer. We mainly train for NAVHDA and AKC.
All of this training keeps us looking forward future upland bird and waterfowl hunts
(and snuggling on the couch).
Around 1999 while out guiding I was introduced to a Spinone Italiano that was hunting with his owners and Ray, a guide friend of mine. Ray told me "this is the best dog I have ever hunted over". Rufus took to the woods with his party in tow and the thought of a bird dog was in my head. Spinone are versatile hunters with both pointing and retreiving traits. They also have a tendancy to work close and I could see how this would be a good thing for this area.
On April fools day 2001 I flew out to St. Louis and picked up our first girl.
Gateway's Leonora Zita JH (Penny)
Penny received a NAVHDA NA prize III at 7mo old. She also has completed her AKC JH title and had a run at the AKC SR hunt test.
Early June 2017 brought Green Farm a new Spinone female.
Busy B's Vanishing Velvet Rose JH (Rosie)
Last fall we had Rosie out working birds and introducing her to the woods and water. The spring of 2018 we completed her JH title and will continue training and run our first NAVHDA event.
In September 2013 we added a Sussex Spaniel to our family.
Montcalms Maggie Mae
Although she may be small, Maggie is a determined little flusher and loves to come home and snuggle after spending time in the field.
I can also help you with limited training or taking your dog on its first hunt.
If you would like more information on Spinone Italiano or dog training feel free to contact us with any questions.
I also guide bird hunting with or without dogs.
We support NAVHDA and use Dogtra training collars.
