Started dogs

Upland Meadows offers our clients the option of purchasing puppies or young dogs with varying amount of training.

Started dogs are typically 8 – 18 months old, they are not steady to the flush but would typically be ready to take hunting. They should respond well to the whistle, have some degree of steadiness, use their nose well, be well introduced to birds and gun fire, be strong retrievers and deliver to hand. Started dogs are typically between $2,500 – $3,500.

We do not currently have any started dogs available.  However, please check back this summer as we do have a couple of young dogs we are working with. 

“Tommy” – SOLD 

DOB: 2/17/2018 — Asking $2,400 pricing will increase as training progresses. 

Tommy at attention

Tommy was the pick of the litter from our recent Sadie x Tommy litter.  This litter produced young gun dogs that mature early and are extremely trainable yet have a great deal of drive.  Slightly on the softer side but can handle pressure and correction that is even handed.

Tommy is a gorgeous medium framed male black & white field bred Springer Spaniel who is a joy to work with in the field.  He is athletic, flashy, driven and a great bird finder!  A natural retrieve with a great mouth.  He learns quickly, is cooperative and works well with his handler. He has been introduced to birds and shot, as well as, conditioned to the e-collar.

His pedigree is a blending of top US Championship field trial lines and some of the best field trial lines in the UK.

Tommy will make an exceptional hunting dog, but is also a very strong field trial candidate.
