Ridgeday Kennels of Montana is located 20 miles south of Miles City, Montana. We are established breeders of German Shorthaired Pointers. We've been in this business for the past 10 years.
Our breeding philosophy is to produce males and females that are even tempered, easy-to-train dogs with great intensity in the field. We prefer medium-sized GSPs and that is what we aim to produce. Our dogs typically have great muscularity through the hips, a uniform chest-to-waist conformation, and blockier heads. We study pedigrees, hunting abilities and temperament carefully before ever planning a breeding.
We have at most 3 litters per year. We take excellent care of our bird dogs and of our puppies. They are raised in a clean, healthy environment with 50 acres to run on. We spend a lot of time with each puppy, socializing them, introducing them to water, to varying degrees of cover, to adult dogs, to children, to stairs, to dead birds and feathers, to being handled, to various commands such as "come," "kennel," "stay," and "no." We have one litter at a time, which allows us to give each puppy the attention it needs to become the hunting dog and companion you want.
We guarantee the health of all puppies for sale and provide you with a written guarantee. Before you pick up your pup, our veterinarian will have performed a well-puppy checkup, administered the first series of shots and wormed the puppies. We require a deposit to hold your position in the selection order, we provide you with a Receipt for Deposit, we provide you with a written Contract of Sale complete with a written guarantee against hip dysplasia, and we provide you with the veterinarian's record of shots & worming and our information sheet containing basic information about the GSP breed and raising and training your puppy.
We hunt our dogs extensively throughout the hunting season. We start hunting September 1 and spend at least 2-3 days a week hunting with our dogs through December. That works out to about 45 days of bird hunting in Montana each year. We also hunt out of state, time permitting. We trial our dogs when we are not hunting. This puts them in hunting-type situations another 5-6 weekends a year not to mention the training we do on live birds the rest of the year. These dogs hunt.
