Started dogs

Upland Meadows offers our clients the option of purchasing puppies or young dogs with varying amount of training. Our started dogs are either ready or nearly ready to go hunting, and/or have had the preliminary training needed for field trial competition. Our “Started” dogs have a solid foundation of both obedience and the skills needed to be successful in the field. They have been introduced to birds and the gun, they have been shot over and have typically had significant exposure to birds, mostly pigeons. Started dogs are typically 8 – 18 months old, ranging in price from $2,500 – $3,500.

We are asking $2,500, pricing will increase as training progresses.

Josie is a beautiful young b/w female Springer Spaniel who is athletic, medium framed outgoing with a cooperative temperament. She takes to training well and learns quickly. She has a great blend of drive and manageability in the field. She hunts at a medium-fast pace and is fairly animated in the field. She is a strong marker and can handle multiple marked retrieves.

She has been introduced to birds and gunfire and handles both very well. We have hunted pheasants over her this fall with great success. Josie has shown herself to be a strong bird finder, has done a great job on moving birds, tracking birds 50-100 yards eventually flushing them.

She is up to date on her shots and has been on Heartgard and NexGard. She also passed her CERF exam, the form is shown below.
