Welcome and Soon Good-Bye 

Dr. Scott “Doc” and Caitlin owned and operated Ankeny Animal & Avian Clinic in Ankeny, Iowa.  We moved to the country in 2000 so we could start Doc's Bird Dogs.  But as you know, all good things must come to an end. We are retiring from raising dogs and moving back into the city.  We have one more litter due to whelp in the first week of April 2018.. The female puppies are all spoken for but we are taking deposits for 2 more males. This is the last litter from Jackson and Betsy.

Hunting and training bird dogs became Doc’s passion and Caitlin’s enthusiasm for puppies has led us to this point. We are a small hobby kennel – having a limited number of litters yearly. Our requirement for breeding stock is that the setters are FDSB registered, they housebreak readily, make friends for us at our pet hospital, and hunt better than Doc’s buddies’ dogs! Additionally we border on obsessive about the quality of our dog’s hips as we know this is the number one genetic problem with hunting dogs. Thanks for visiting our website!
