Breeders of Quality Gordon Setters For the Discerning Sportsman located in Brethren, MI. "We are hunters who breed Gordons that hunt! One of the Gordons greatest assets is their desire to hunt to the gun. We needed two seasons because we give our dogs experience on wild birds; the three months in the fall just wasn’t enough. Spring season is a time when one can focus completely on dog work and add another dimension to their knowledge of the birds. The birds tend to be wilder in the spring due to the lack of ground cover; even woodcock which generally hold well can be difficult to approach. This is a good time to add to the experience level of young dogs and fine tune the older ones."
