Looking for a new dog: GSP or Gordon Setter
I am looking for a new dog and am thinking of a GSP. I live and hunt in NEPA and would want a close working dog with an easy going personality. The dog would be in the house with the family all of the time. I hunt grouse, woodcock and pheasants in thick cover. Wondering if anyone has had any experience with any kennels in the PA, NY, NJ area? I have always had Gordons and love them, but cant seem to find any breeders that have the larger older style (they were almost like a Ryman setter in size and hunting style) I cant seem to locate the breeder that I had gotten the previous dogs from in Wisconsin, it was Tartana Kennels run by Holly Wachuta. Excellent dogs. I am not interested in the smaller field trial style dogs like the Springsets, though they are good hunters too. Any reccomendations would be appreciated.
