Midwest Gundog Kennels
Midwest Gundog Kennels is one of the longest tenured gun dog facilities in the Midwest, with more than 30 years in the business. Located in Foreston, Minnesota, we’ve produced titled dogs in both field trials and hunting.
We love gundogs. After decades in the business, we’ve seen it all and are passionate about what we do. In addition to training, breeding and boarding dogs, we regularly do speaking engagements focused on gun dogs.
We offer an in-depth understanding of training techniques and problem solving for each individual dog.
We teach the basics to get any dog under control including Sit, Come and Heel. Available for any and all breeds, we equip pets and their owners for success.
