2017 Is Shaping Up To Be A Great Year!

Gamekeepers is very pleased to welcome back Jason Docherty as our assistant trainer.  Jason has experience training and running dogs at all Hunt Test levels and in Derby and Qualifying.  He is patient, hard working, has mad obedience training skills and proved himself to be a valuable asset to the team last year.  Jason will be working hand in hand with Mitch to insure all of the dogs are polished and ready for the 2017 test season.

Camden, South Carolina Ponds

Mitch, Jason and crew are heading to the milder climate of Camden, South Carolina for training this winter.  We are very excited about the opportunity to lease these wonderful kennels and property.  The grounds and ponds are wonderful and will give our dogs every opportunity to make 2017 a successful year.

In addition, our workshop schedule is shaping up with some excellent programs for 2017.  Just announced is our new program “The Master Class”.  This workshop is for handlers and dogs currently running at the AKC Master level that want to learn more about test strategy and test design.  Check out our Schedule of Upcoming Workshops and Seminars page for details on this and other programs being offered throughout the year.

Gamekeepers is now feeding NutriSource®!

NS LogoGamekeepers is proud to announce that we are now feeding the NutriSource® line of dog food.

Choosing the right dog food is equally as important as all of the training and care that goes into making strong, healthy competitors.  These canine athletes crave a diet made with the highest quality ingredients, one that will give them the energy to hunt all day, while promoting overall health, weight, shiny coat and bright eyes.  That is why Gamekeepers has chosen to make the switch to the NutriSource® line.

NutriSource® is made by Tuffy’s Pet Foods in Perham, MN.  Tuffy’s is a family owned business that has been making top quality dog food for 50 years.  When we were introduced to them earlier this year, we were impressed with the quality ingredients in their products, their high standards for quality control (something that has kept them off the recall list that has plagued so many other companies) and the caring professionals that make up the Tuffy’s team.   We sought out other breeders and competitors that feed NutriSource®, were impressed with what we heard and decided we wanted them on our team.  You can learn more about NutriSource® and Tuffy’s pet foods  on their website at http://www.nutrisourcepetfoods.com/nutrisource/
