Are you in the market for a new hunting companion that is “ready for the field” as soon as you get home? Maybe you want a new hunting companion but would prefer to skip over the “puppy stage”? In either case, a “Started Dog” may be just what you are looking for.

At Top Shelf Kennels, our definition of a started dog is one that has the following attributes/training:

- Basic Obedience

- Crate trained (will “kennel” on command and travel peacefully in crate) 

- Recall (comes when called)

- Heal trained

- Gunfire introduction

- Water introduction

- Field coverage (quartering/checking in)

- Beginning Steadiness (will point and hold birds until flushed) 

- Beginning Retrieve skills (will bring birds back within arms reach of handler)  


See below for details on available started dog.

We’d love to hear from you.  701-367-5758
