Puppies and started dogs available throughout the year and training available by appointment.
We strive to breed a family companion, field bred English setter. Our dogs are known for their excellence on grouse and their ability to develop at an early age with natural traits. All our dogs are Field dog stud book registered.
I purchased a female pup last spring from Rich and I cannot say enough about her as a hunting and household companion. Her personality is a joy to be around ever day and she is the smartest dog I have ever owned. She is a grouse, quail and woodcock machine with over 40 rock solid points this fall at just 7 months of age. I have owned shorthairs, wirehairs and pointing labs and they all have their strengths. At 53 years of age she has help me find new life in the woods. GREAT JOB RICH! I am spreading the word!

A month ago, I took my 9 month old English Setter to Dun Roven Kennels on the advise of my son.
My setter had very little exposure to birds and really didn't know the difference between a butterfly and a grouse.
My son knew who Rich Hollister was, and that he trained pointing bird dogs. He said Rich had an excellent reputation and that he could get my pup started in the right direction.
I dropped my dog off to Dun Roven Kennels the end of July. I picked him up two days ago August 29th.
I took him out this morning. He had 3 great woodcock points and 2 grouse points. If you are considering having someone train your bird dog, I highly recommend Rich Hollister at Dun Roven Kennels. I couldn't be more pleased with his work.
