About Us

Avid hunters, field trialers and hunt test competitors recognize that owning a well-bred dog is only the first part of having a great hunting companion. Proper dog and handler training is essential. A well-trained and -conditioned dog will perform to the best of its abilities and be more productive in the field. However, lack of time and access to convenient training grounds often make it impractical to effectively train and condition a pointing bird dog on your own. With that in mind, award-winning and committed dog trainers, Robert Rohner and Kristin Tracy, along with upland hunting enthusiast and conservationist Mark Walker, are proud to offer one of the finest bird dog training facilities in the Midwest. Our kennels and grounds are located in rural Southeast Nebraska, an expansive and natural setting that provides the ideal environment and resources to develop a bird dog for the avid hunter, the hunting lodge owner or even an AKC field trial competitor. We train all pointing breeds and offer:
Initial performance assessments and customized training plan for every dog
Routine progress reports sent to clients monthly
Puppy and Started Dogs occasionally available for purchase
State of Nebraska-licensed boarding kennel and breeding program
We're licensed in Nebraska, license#: KN1298
Veterinarian-certified care plan and inspected facilities
