It's more than just a dog, it's a new start.

Updated: Jan 24, 2021

I always thought I'd want my dog to have puppies one day. I wanted my kids to go through this important motion of life. My 7 and 9 year olds are great kids with a beautiful sensibility and a love of dogs, but we all know wanting to is not sufficient. Do your dogs have what it takes to make a positive impact in the #GSP population and while trying to be as neutral as humanly possible, are they worth it? Of course to you they are, but really, will they make the breed better ? Will they make great #hunting partners and well balanced members of a family, are they in respect of the breed's standards? So many questions that require a firm yes as an answer before going ahead, that I never thought I'd be lucky enough to own dogs that had all it took.

We went out of our way to have the best blood lines and wether it was on the NAVHDA test grounds, in the thick covers pursuing woodcock and grouse or just chilling at home, it proved to be a wise decision. These dogs are spectacular in every aspect.

So here we are on the verge of this great adventure. The entire family is on board for this and thank god I have the help of a few friends who are seasoned breeders and can help make the best decisions and plan ahead.

When came time to pick kennel name, I wanted to convey what Mobby and Mac represent to me. To the hunter and #NAVHDA enthusiast that was seeking a perfect partner with a great intensity who could be contained in a beautiful and athletic package...To me, these dogs are iconic gun dogs. They are everything a gun dog should be.
