Hunting Dog Training and German Shorthaired Pointer Breeder

 We are the complete Personal Foot Hunting Dog Breeding program. Located in the High Desert community of  Lucerne Valley CA 

Our Facility

Location: 12401 Fairlane Rd. Lucerne Valley, CA 92356


  • Centrally located just 2 hours from downtown Los Angeles.  We train all pointing and flushing dogs for upland bird hunting. Our  hunting dog training grounds include our own 20 acres of real "Wild  Bird" High Desert Habitat with Quail and Chukar available year round and  Pheasants upon request with thousands of unfenced wild acres  surrounding our facility. 

Our Grounds


  •  We believe your upland bird dog training should be done on  the same type of grounds that you will be hunting. Our training facility is just  that. Real hunting grounds on our own property for gun dog training and for  training the novice handler. Our training  grounds are perfect for seeing  your hunting dog training at all times in a natural wild surrounding so you can  learn to handle your pointing dog or flushing dog correctly. We also have Summer and Winter Camp training for training on wild and liberated birds. See our section on Camps.

Our Kennel


  •  We are a licensed  kennel with the State of CA, County of San Bernardino and have a well lit 1400  square foot totally secured indoor heated and cooled boarding facility. It  includes indoor individual kennel runs with misters and fans for summer, propane  heater for winter and 5 large outdoor exercise areas that are shaded for summer  heat. Your hunting dog is not just caged in a dog run or staked out on a chain  all day when it isn't being worked. It will be outdoors training, exercising or  relaxing in our indoor secured kennel building with  other gun dogs for the remainder of the day. We want you and your dog to not only enjoy the training  but your dog to be comfortable and safe during the stay here as well. Our facility is kept clean, sanitary  and protected at all times.  Every dog at our kennel is required to be  current on DHL, Parvo, and Rabies shots. 

About Us


  • Hunting Dog is dedicated to breeding German Shorthaired Pointers from specifically selected  Field Champion lines to guarantee that these dogs will hunt Wild Upland Birds or  compete in Field Trials at Local, Regional and National levels.  We are so confident in our pups we  guarantee you will like our dogs or we will replace it. No questions asked. I would not sell a dog I wont hunt over.
