Grouse Hunting that unfolds right in front of you

Our Setters work close to the hunter watch your dog instead of your GPS

Started Grouse Hunting Pups from Northwind English Setters

Started Pups 6-10 months start at $4000.00 +

All started pups will have been exposed and accustomed to the e-collar and gun he/she will have been worked in the woods. The pup has been exposed to the grouse woods and is comfortable negotiating the woods. Depending on age and time of the year, they have had some exposure to Grouse and Woodcock. To sum it up, our started pups have had their foundation laid with extensive, positive handling and their training has begun in the grouse woods where they ultimately will hunt for you. They are ready to head to the woods and start working with their new owner.


Started pups are guaranteed to pass their OFA hip exam (score fair, good or excellent) at 24 months. They are guaranteed against any congenital eye or hearing defects to the age of 24 months.  

To Reserve a pup

A $500 deposit is required to reserve a started pup. The amount is determined by the pup’s age, level of development and experience. When you pick up your pup, the remaining balance is due before the pup leaves the kennel. This includes any additional training fees, food, medical and Wisconsin Sales Tax

Many Owners like to have the pup for the first two months. We encourage that if your schedule will allow you to have the necessary time it takes to care for the pup. During this time, you are expected to socialize the pup, acclimate it to its future home, crate train the pup. We work with the owner to ensure that you know what is expected of you before returning the pup to our kennel for our detailed gun dog training program in the Wisconsin Grouse woods. Pups are expected to be returned at 16 weeks of age.

Picking up your pup once training is completed

When the new owner picks up their pup you should be prepared to set aside 3 hours with us at our Dog Training Facilities to receive individual instruction on handling your pup prior to the pup leaving our kennel. We will head to the woods where we can show you how to handle the pup and what to expect from the training that we have done. We want the new owner on the same page as the pup.

There is nothing more confusing to a pup than mix communications and inconsistency can unravel training and the foundation that has been developed with each started pup.
