A furious flush of wild quail…

A Hifive Kennels success story: Thornapple Cody, Runner-up CH 2017 ABHA North Country Walking Shooting Dog Championship
Hifive’s RU-CH Thornapple Cody

I love videos of pointing dogs and wild quail.

This is another from Hifive Kennels, and it features a setter named Ginny.

If you hang around the coverdog field trial circuit at all, you probably know Hifive. Located in Beulah, MI, they’ve been breeding, training, and trialing dogs for 20+ years, and they’ve produced a long list of great dogs.

Nothing beats an English Pointer…

Bruce Minard’s HiFive Kennels has been around since 1996. In that time, it has gained a reputation for quality bird dogs. I’ve seen Bruce’s dogs on the trial circuit and they’re always impressive.

This video shows an 11-month old English Pointer named HiFive Unlisted. Watch how nice and easy this dog handles. Also, check out how dynamic and snappy he is on the ground. That athleticism is what makes English Pointers such impressive dogs. Once you get used to all that drama and grace in a dog, it’s hard to hunt behind another breed.
