If you expect your dog to perform as an athlete, he needs to be fed like one! You cannot, as a hunter, expect your dog to last in the woods all day on poor quality food. It would be the same as the athlete running a 25 miles run, on bread alone. Just wouldn't work.
On the other hand, if your dog is not an athlete, rather a “week-end jogger”, he doesn't need high powered food either, he'll just get fat!
We use a chicken based food. Chicken is the #1 ingredient on the ingredient list on the bag. Always check the ingredients and the analysis of the food you buy. If you change from one food to another, try to ease the dog into it gradually over the course of a week or so. That way you won't have stomach upsets.
- For Active Dogs: 28% protein, 20–30% fat (depending on their level of activity).
- For Pups: 28% protein, 18-20% fat. We feed our pups, puppy food till they are one year old and fully grown.
NEVER give your dog “people” food. It isn't good for them. Dogs are carnivores, not vegetarians, so normally speaking your dog needs meat in his diet. Unfortunately there isn't any more dogfood with beef (due to the perceived BSE threat), so chicken is the next best thing.
pups for sale
We do not always have pups for sale, particularly not during our Winter months. Here in Manitoba, it is not unusual to have temperatures 40 below (Fahrenheit and Celsius) for 2-3 week stretches. Our pups are mostly ready to go to their new environments starting in the Spring, through till about July.view

He is a fantistic companion, and hunter. He certainly is a very good fit for our family. I hope in November when we go to Pennsylvania, my 88 year old father will be able to shoot a bunny off of Sam. This will be our 52nd year of hunting together.

Good morning, everything went smoothly yesterday and Abby is just adorable. She slept in her kennel all the way home and then of course was up most of the night “exploring” and being mischievous. She is eating well already. Thanks so much for all your help. I’m sure Chris will enjoy his new friend for years to come.
