Wildwind Kennel

















Started and Finished Spaniels



Throughout the year we offer several nice started and finished prospects.

A started dog is usually between the age of one or one-and-a-half years old and is ready to hunt. They have been well socialized and housetrained. Our started dogs have a nice quartering pattern, have been well shot over and retrieve well to hand. A started dog is basically a very nice intermediate gundog that has had about 2-3 months of professional training and probably 30-40 bird contacts.

The CERF exam has already been performed on the prospect's eyes and an OFA prelimary hip x-ray has been performed with a satisfactory grade. Price is usually in the $3,000-$3,500 range for a well started dog. Not a bad price when you look at an initial purchase price of $1000-$1,200... plus a year and a half of veterinary care, dog food, training for 2-3 months, birds, etc...



A finished dog usually is two years of age and up. They have usually had a year or more of wild bird experience. Our finished dogs are steady to wing and shot. They demonstrate a very finished automatic quartering pattern and will handle very advanced and complex blind retrieves. All facets of obedience and field work are very advanced and polished.

The CERF exam has already been performed on the prospect's eyes and an OFA hip x-ray has been performed with a satisfactory grade. Price range for a finished dog is usually $3,500 and up - dependant upon age, years of training and breeding. This is a truly polished dog in all extremes.



All dogs are unconditionally and fully guaranteed. We want your hunting partner to become an integral part of your home and hunting life. Your satisfaction is important to us. Many people have bought two or more dogs from us over the years which, in and of itself, speaks of our reputation.
