Wild Bird Training Program

         For 28 years Hifive Kennels has been breeding English Pointers and English Setters for the Grouse and Woodcock hunter.  To prove our program, we have successfully campaigned our dogs on the cover dog circuit against the best and have hunted our dogs across the country on wild birds. Our dogs are truly wild bird dogs that handle from foot. We train gun dog and coverdog/walking dogs. Our program has produced some of the finest hunting and grouse trial dogs in the country.
