Committed to Tradition


Rusty Guns Kennel and Training Facility is composed of 300 acres of mixed agricultural and wetlands exclusively designed to train versatile hunting dogs. We also offer tailored upland and waterfowl hunts during season. Our commitment to tradition and our ability to embrace a variety of new and proven techniques allows us to always ensure we can help you and your dog achieve your goals. We strive to ensure our genetics and traits are of the best we can provide for our DK/GSPs that we breed and provide to the active hunting family.

We pride ourselves with providing True German dogs that are dual registered and tested in both NADKC and NAVHDA. We have worked extensively to bring some the best lines available from Germany and Europe in order to bring back the "German" in the German Shorthaired Pointer. All of our dogs embody the original design and purpose of these fine dogs. Dogs should be noble and biddable in the house yet work energetically with high cooperation in the field. We exclusively breed for calmness and incredible natural ability GSPs. RGKs bloodlines are some of the best managed lines in the world. We stand behind every dog we sell and will work extensively to ensure that you are matched with EXACTLY what you are looking for.  We pride ourselves on our ability to breed, train and support NADKC and NAVHDA exclusive dogs and events.

My journey in the dog world started when I met my husband Scott. Long story short is that we met over one of his dogs. After we got serious, he plainly stated; “I love you, but I will always be doing this dog thing.”  So, I guess if you can’t beat, join them! I started helping him train and manage the kennel.

I worked and trained my own German shorthaired pointer and ran her in NAVHDA and AKC tests. All this gave me a true appreciation for what he was doing, and I fully wanted to be a part of that. Together we have grown Rusty Guns Kennel to a successful training and breeding facility that supports both NAVHDA and NADKC.

I love the involvement of working with young dogs and setting foundations. Using positive training methods along with structured training cycles has proved to successfully cultivate a reputable and successful business and marriage.

Working with Scott and the dogs to realize their potential. Nothing is more rewarding to me then when you see the proverbial light bulb click on for a young dog or seeing a dog that has had the “wrong” training snap back and understand what’s being asked of them.
