Ruggs Ranch is the only Orvis-Endorsed breeding kennel for English Pointers. We are a full time breeding and training kennel of pointing and flushing dogs. The dogs at Ruggs Ranch have proven themselves in the field and in the home as a great companion. Our dogs come from the finest Champion Field trail lines that have been bred to perfection. With 45 plus year in breeding and training of English Pointer our lines are proven with ability to be the best in the field and on the couch as a companion. Our breeding program has produced Field Champions and great companions. With our remarkable rolling hills and vast fields with Wild Birds, Ruggs Ranch dogs reap the benefits for training and hunting.
Our puppies are imprinted from birth to the day of delivery for new owners, from taking walks in the fields to exposing them to new environments each day. The pups visit with Ruggs Ranch clients after a hunt in The Trophy Room. Socializing is a very important part of raising a confident puppy to be able to turn them into a well-rounded companion or gun dog.
At Ruggs Ranch our dogs have the privilege of accompany our clients on a hunt on a daily basis; they have hundreds of birds shot over them each season. The pointers are staunch on point and retrieve when the flushers fly by to flush the birds. Our breeding/training program produces some of the most bitable pointing and flushing dogs. In off season the dogs are kept in shape and exercised running in fields or on our custom designed UTV that handles 8 dogs at one time.
We have puppies, started and finished dogs available thru out the year. Shipping is available anywhere in the USA or worldwide. Please give us a call we would love to talk to you about our Pointers and flushers.
