Welcome


Idylwyld Bird Dogs is a small operation on purpose.


MY standard of a trained dog is point staunchly, steady to wing, shot and fall. Reliable honor of another dogs point and bring the bird to hand with a decent retrieve. Force breaking to retrieve is done if needed.

Training my own dogs was fine for a while. Then I expanded that thought... Had the idea in 2018 that I would buy a couple of pups, raise them and train them right along with mine and sell them. Two more dogs on the chain did not seem like a big deal.

Use the money to pay entry fees and diesel to scratch another part of my bird dog affliction. Go to a few field trials each fall. That part of the plan has not quite worked out yet.....

I confess to not being much of a salesman. I provide a short video or two of dog. Nothing hidden and no sales pitch. I train silent and sell silent.

I have zero interest in selling "started" dogs or puppies.

Preferred tools are simple and effective. Carded feral pigeons that I trap, and sweat equity working dogs on check cord.

Dogs I train and offer for sale have been worked on pigeons, Johnny house quail, and I have shot wild quail over them.

An old, but good video of Bill West explains the training concept I use.
