Contact us

You are welcome to contact us with any questions about Irish Setters. John and Gail have more than 50 years of experience with this wonderful breed; Tami is a second generation Irish Setter person.

We are located near Madison, Wisconsin. You may meet our dogs in person at Milwaukee Irishfest (Aug), at Badger Kennel Club Dog Fair (Nov), at dog shows, or at Badger Kennel Club, or keep up with us on our Facebook page.

    Process for prospective owners

    We breed with the intention of keeping something from the litter, and have puppies to share with select homes. Occasionally we may also have a young adult available to the right home.

    Just as we encourage people to ask questions of breeders, we require knowing more about prospective owners of our puppies and dogs. Our first step is a questionnaire that is designed to help us get to know you better and what kind of dog you are interested in.

    Generally, we place about half of every litter in pet homes. We do not make a profit on our litters; we are preservation breeders. We have a passion for this breed and we want to keep puppies for our future.

    Our litters are planned; we do not have puppies available all the time. Generally, litters are spaced about 18 months apart. We do keep a waiting list. We encourage people interested in a future puppy or adult to fill out a questionnaire.

    Please note USDA rules prohibit us from shipping to buyers with which we have no previous relationship (buyer, seller, and puppy must physically be in the same location at time of transfer). We have made arrangements to meet buyers at shows or other convenient locations; we value our relationship with owners and meeting in person.
