Duck Camp Kennels
Duck Camp Kennels is a hunter's resource for finding the best dog breeders and trainers across the country. These professional partners of ours breed and train the best gun dogs around. Whether it's a British lab or a beautiful GSP, these dogs excel in waterfowl hunting, upland pointing and retrieving, as well as field trials. We have either personally bought or trained a dog with these partners, or vetted them to the standards we know and trust. So we can vouch for their quality of services.

Born to Run Kennels
The lineup of first class bird dogs at Born to Run Kennels works wild birds across varied terrain and diverse conditions from the prairies to canyon country to south Texas and beyond. Each dog that makes this string does so because they are proven wild bird dogs, passionate athletes, and considerate hunting companions. The kennel is diverse, and while alpha dog Roo leads the pack, the crew thrives due to a strong bench of females. This is no cookie cutter training program for some pointing dogs - at Born To Run Kennels they operate a development program to nurture the natural talent and drive that these athletic dogs already have within them. The objective is not to have a compliant animal, but rather to work with each dog as an individual, build confidence, enhance strengths, teach them how to make their own choices with you, the trainer, in mind and forge a special relationship. This cultivation results in mutual respect and an enjoyable hunting companion for years to come. Born to Run Kennels is mindful that if you train every dog the same way, they lose their individual identities and natural tendencies. Many other kennels train this way, but Born to Run has a personalized approach with every dog, which really sets them apart.
