Whisky River Gun Dogs is family business that offers a fun and welcoming atmosphere for the whole family. We offer obedience training for all dogs, but specializes in training flushing and retrieving dogs for upland hunting, hunt tests and AKC field trials. We also offer boarding in our heated indoor/outdoor kennel runs with airing yards.
Whisky River Gun Dogs may welp 2-4 litters of English Springer Spaniel puppies a year that are field trial quality. We breed for trainability, where the dog turns it on in the field and while also being a great companion in the house. Read more on our current litters and submit your interest for upcoming ones!
We realize the impact that Covid 19 has had on all of our lives, in big ways and small. We want to make sure you don't feel you need to compromise on giving you and your dog the support they need. Give us a call today to discuss how we can help through regular phone sessions on training tips and tricks.

We treat each dog at Whisky River Gun Dogs as a unique individual and develop the dogs training to fit the dog and maximize it’s potential. Our training is based on positive reinforcement. We will use treats, verbal praise and physical attention to reward a job well done. We strongly feel that a dog that is happy and comfortable will be more productive. We want the dogs to learn but truly enjoy the experience.
We attend English Springer Spaniel field trials across the midwest and typically also attends the Springer National. Starting in 2020 we will also start attending select English Cocker Spaniel field trials. If you are interested in your dogs being a part of our trial schedule, please reach out.
