Wingshooter Kennels “Started Gun Dogs” are outstanding young bird dogs that have spent enormous time in training and orientation to hone their hunting skills and develop a confident maturity. They are trustworthy of their handler and can go quickly into the field. They easily adapt and bond to a new family.
Earl is an easy-going, but hard-hitting hunter and has been in our Started Gun Dog program since 8 weeks of age.
Earl is turning into a dynamic bird finder with a graceful athletic stride and sweeping the field pace just like his aunt “Lil” and Uncle “Bear” whom I own. He works the cover aggressively with moderate to medium range and consistent check-in. He handles easily and is a joy to hunt behind. He is quick to and staunch on point, with a picturesque intense stance. He has trained singly and with other dogs and breeds of dogs. He has great temperament and is quiet and reserved in the kennel.
He comes from a long line of hunting companions and proven field trial competitors and this talent shows through in his field performance and kennel manners. His grandfather is Jeff Hoskins GFC FC AFC Sniksoh Spank’s Hank. There are many NFC and FC notables in his pedigree. I personally own his aunt, uncle and cousin from Hank and can vouch for their performance. They all have outstanding game drive, high-speed performance in the field and a great desire to please. Earl and his brother Luke are following in their footsteps.
Our Started Gun Dogs are driven to seek and find game, point staunchly and have been exposed to various field scenarios and hunting situations. They are familiar with the gun, retrieve naturally, e-collar conditioned, whistle trained, and socialized with other dogs and hunters. They are eager and ready to hunt!
Note: All Started Gun Dog sales require an on-site visit to Wingshooter Kennels prior to final purchase. This allows for one-on-one introduction of the dog to the prospective buyer, reviewing field performance, dog characteristics and compatibility with the future owner. We understand your dog is more than just a hunting companion and want to assure their performance and personality will be a good match for you and your family.
