We invite you to enjoy our passion of the modern field bred English Setter, the quest for ruffed grouse, and our vision of a champion caliber bird dog.
The passion for upland birds began early for me. Pheasant hunting as a kid was exciting but it was many years later that I found my life changing love for upland bird hunting.
Introduced to grouse field trials we soon acquired a tri-colored pup, sired by a current champion named Wrongway. This pup was perfect! Although the last in the litter it was evident from the get go he was intelligent with the natural talent of finding birds. He developed into a strong dog that like any other of ours could handle the heat. As dogs develop through their puppy stage he was different, deadly on wild birds and a natural on grouse!
With disappointment of my inexperience as a handler. I was referred to a trainer that was certain to help. In his early derby and shooting dog career his drive and desire would be limited as all dogs have their day. Dave Hughes a professional trainer from PA. once told me he was like a lock and had to have his combination picked.
In 2003 as the fall trial season came to a close Lucky was named Runner-Up Grouse Champion at the Grand National Grouse Championship. In a field of 83 he tallied two finds on grouse. With this performance in the open pole timber of PA. we set our sights on producing solid bird dogs with intelligence and heart to hunt to the extremes.
Our kennel was founded in 2003 with that vision in mind. To enhance the genetics of the English Setter. From that solid pup, to an extreme competitor we offered him at stud. We named our kennel Dogwood Bird Dogs from the many grouse points in the swampy bogs where the dogwood berries formed these little islands that produced the most phenominal grouse hunting. Like a home away from home the Manistee National Forest in Michigan has proven to be our favorite training grounds.
As in any competition every dog has his day while some say lightning never strikes twice. In 2005 Dave Hughes, guided Lucky to another big win. With a big forward race scoring on 2 broods of grouse. He was named the winner of the Lake States Grouse Championship. With an entry of 60 dogs and multiple dogs with clean bird work it was his day to shine.
The following year Lucky suffered a shoulder injury that would be career ending. He is now since retired and producing bird dogs with the same attributes that made him our greatest dog. In his younger days he was a hard charging bird dog with stamina, although desire and endurance were traits we seek. His natural ability on game is what him so special. At the age of seven months during many of his training trips to the woods he pointed the wily old ruff like a pro. Many memories come to mind, tons of grouse pointed, and the excitement of him on the edge.
Our goal is simple! Produce champion caliber English Setters with class, style and desire to hunt that extra mile. Lucky’s genetics have been proven with satisfied owners and growing numbers of horseback, walking, and grouse trial winners. We are confident his genetics will enhance the English Setter as we know it today.
