Adding to the family business, Neal Minard has partnered with Bruce training and breeding wild bird dogs.  After high school Neal completed his welding degree at Northwestern Michigan College.  Upon graduation he fulfilled two goals, being an accomplished welder and fabricator and carrying on the family business.  Neal has trained for and participated in wild bird dog trials in every great hunting destination, Arizona to Montana, Michigan to Florida.

With a keen eye for greatness, Neal and Bruce look forward to many years and many great dogs in the field.


We enjoy working with the public and are committed to making our next 20 years more successful for your bird dog.
