Why Bear Paw Ranch?

We know you have lots of options when it comes to breeders, here’s why you’ll love choosing us!

They all hunt…but you don’t have to!

We breed bird dogs. We are very careful to select dogs with natural hunting ability. They do amazing in the field, whether professionally trained or in your backyard. However, we know that not everyone is a hunter, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a bird dog. These pups are so amazing, it would be selfish to only share them with hunters. My hope is that you’ll spoil them, cherishing every moment, every quirk, and every crazy memory you make with them.

Ready to Join the Bear Paw Family?

The best way to start the process is with the puppy application. There are no right or wrong answers. It's designed to help us better understand what you are looking for in a dog, so we can align you with the perfect puppy for you!


You deserve to enjoy your dog for the long-haul. It can take a bit of work to get a GSP to figure out their manners and be the amazing dog they can be. This is why health is a major consideration for our dogs and breeder selection.

Match the Puppy to You

Part of our success as a breeder is aligning the right puppy to your family. While GSPs share characteristics as a whole, each puppy has their own personality, temperament, and quirks. We work with you to better understand you, your ideal life with a dog, and help you find the perfect pup for you!

Lifetime Support

We’ve been doing this a long time. We’ve learned a lot. We are always here to help you, no matter what, give us a call, we’ll help you as best as you can.

Our Success is Your Success

For over a decade we’ve been carefully crafting our breeding program to create perfect family hunting dogs. It’s not enough to create healthy shorthairs, they have to have natural instinct. I don’t want you spending a ton of money at the bird dog trainers. They also need to be good inside the home, able to go anywhere, and do anything.

We have carefully selected for the ideal temperament and drive to create the perfect family hunting dog. A dog with an off switch who is ready to go when it’s time, but is a gentleman in the home the rest of the year.

It doesn’t end there. While we fully respect that the dog is your dog, you’re the owner, we are there to support you for the life of the dog and beyond. We are always available if you have a question, concern, or just want to run something by someone who knows. We do our best to learn from our buyers and feedback from our owners is what made our program what it is today.
