A Little About Us ...
Jeff's love for the outdoors and “man’s best friend” began during his childhood as his dad taught him about hunting and the care & training for dogs. So, following in the footsteps of his father, Jeff has been involved in training, breeding & raising healthy happy dogs for most of his 62 years. These years have been devoted to various breeds of bird hunting dogs, both pointer & setter types. Jeff is an avid hunter, spending several weeks out of state during hunting season. He also enjoys being a guide for quail hunts at Selwood , a local preserve. Jeff likes meeting new people and exchanging hunting stories. For Jeff, an example of a perfect day is spending it in the field with his dogs.
Occasionally we call on help from our family... whether its cleaning the kennels, assistance with training, help with pick up day or deliveries, picture taking or computer work... everyone is willing to pitch in with something. Daughter, Robyn, has her masters in education and has been a counselor & teacher in the Talladega County & Pell City School systems and is currently teaching in the Talladega system. She is married to Brandan who is co-owner of a granite installation company. Brandan sometimes accompanies Jeff on the out of state hunts. Robyn & Brandan have 2 daughters. Catherine Elizabeth (Cate) is 13 years old. Their youngest daughter, Carlee Scott, is 9 yrs old. Cate is best buddies with G-O and some of the females and always looks forward to watching G.O. hunt . Carlee loves the Braque's more than the Vizsla's, with the exception of Cocoa (a Vizsla). Son, Tony, is a maintenance supervisor. He also has 2 daughters; Ava Danielle is 13 yrs old; and his oldest daughter is Hannah Grace,15 years old. Both Hannah & Ava also love the Braque's more than the Vizsla's, with the exception of Cocoa. His wife , Brandy, is a manager for a group of apartments and has a son, Preston , who is 17 years old. Tony & Brandy recently added to their family with the birth of a son, Jeremiah Isaac, August 2019 and they are also fostering a baby girl. All of the kids love the puppies. Hannah & Cate help me with bottle feeding the puppies and all of the girls help with socializing. You'll see the girls often in the puppy photos/videos. Cate & Hannah help with kennel cleaning and ALL of the work relating to the kennels & dogs/puppies. And me.........well I think I had the "empty nest" syndrome many years back. Having the dogs join our family helped me with that. Later I developed a few health issues and the dogs then became good therapy for me. The females are "my girls" and their puppies are my furry "grandbabies". I love my girls and they love me back. I talk to them just as if they are my grandgirls ... they are very good listeners. When we have puppies, I enjoy holding & talking to them as if they were human babies. It is such fun to watch them grow up!!
All of our family loves animals and everything about the outdoors. We take family trips together whenever possible and enjoy life as much as we can. Other than dogs & bird hunting, some of our passions include: deer hunting, snow skiing, snowmobiling, fly fishing, camping, wildlife watching, river rafting, roller coasters, country music concerts and Alabama Football (except Jeff, Brandan & Cate, who prefer Auburn) .
