We have been breeding dogs for about 15 years. We have spent the past 12 years raising Ryman/Old Hemlock English Setters.
We are dedicated bird hunters and enjoy working with and training our dogs. When the season is open we hunt foot trails for grouse, quail and woodcock. We also travel to Tripp, South Dakota where we have a house which enables us to hunt for Pheasant, Sharp Tail, Praire Chickens & Quail. We also travel Michigan, Minnesota, and here in Wisconsin to hunt different types of wild birds.
Abby and Bleu are our foundational Setters.....we feel very lucky to have had these fine dogs. They started it all for us, and we are very proud of them. Abby passed in 2012 and Bleu is now retired. We also had Indy which was a fine/outstanding hunting dog. We do have younger dogs that will carry on with their bloodlines. Through the years we have found it extremely difficult to find the quality in a Setter we look for outside our home without health problems or the lack of ability to hunt......when we bring a pup into our house they must carry the drive and intensity on birds that we look for....Our goal is to have outstanding, healthy, well rounded hunting dogs and to sell quality pups that require little training for the average hunter.
Our dogs are well loved and cared for and are in superb health. Their lineage come from the old classic foot hunting Ryman/Old Hemlock bloodlines. They have great character, intelligent, are affectionate and make wonderful hunting companions as well as a family pet.
They are well trusted with children. They have a strong desire to hunt and they hunt at a close range.... they are a pleasure to watch when they are at work in the field.
The puppies receive 2-3 sets of shots and are wormed weekly and given preventatives before they go to their new homes. The first shot is given at 5 weeks (parvo), and at 6&9 weeks old they are given a 5-way combination vaccine. We go the extra mile to keep a puppy healthy.
They will also have registration papers to be registered with American Field FDSB (Field Dog Stud Book).
We are small breeders and we have 2-4 litters a year. All of our dogs are family pets and they all hunt.
We enjoy raising and watching our puppies grow, and the happiness they bring to the new families that take one home.
