Thank you again for an awesome hunt the other morning. Sophia and I both had a great time thanks to
you, John, Liz and Bo. It was great to see the dogs work, and hunting over dogs like yours makes the whole
experience "complete". It would be great if you could send the pictures you took. I look forward to planning
another hunt soon. Best wishes for you and your family in the new year,

Can't tell you how happy we are with Cheese (AKA Terminator), she is 100% more than what I expected have
not seen a dog like this in a long time. Hope her puppy crackers will have some of her good blood and with
your training 2009 should be a good year.
Having watched your string of dogs in the field for me was a testament to the quality of your breeding for both
hunter and trialer alike. I've personally learned so much about dogs at Indian Creek that combined with the
quality of your dogs you've added enjoyment to my hunts both on the preserve and elsewhere. It also showed
me firsthand that a lot of the stereotypes of Pointers as aloof runoffs to be untrue. We look forward to getting
our next Indian Creek pup.
THIS IS MIKE ROBBINS FROM UTAH. I'M SORRY I HAVE NOT CONTACTED YOU SOONER THAN THIS,
BUT I JUST WANTED TO SEND YOU SOME PICTURES OF MY PUP AND LET YOU KNOW HOW SHE IS
DOING. I NAMED HER GRACIE. I JUST CAN'T SAYENOUGH GOOD ABOUT THIS DOG, SHE IS COMING
ALONG VERY WELL AND I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH HER. SHE HUNTS HARD AND HAS A LOT OF
DRIVE AND DESIRE, YET HANDLES VERY WELL. I HAVE HUNTED HER ON SEVERAL SPECIES OF
WILD BIRDS IN UTAH AND IDAHO. SHE HAS HUNTED CHUKAR, PHEASANT, VALLEY QUAIL,
HUNGARIAN PATRIDGE, AND SAGE GROUSE AND HAS DONE WELL ON ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT
BIRDS IN THEIR DIFFERENT HABITAT TYPES.
I could not believe my eyes Sunday when I came up to Indian Creek to see my dog and what you had done in
two short weeks. He went from just pet to hunting dog . He was pointing live birds like he had done it for
years. It gave me chills to watch you work my dog and he had so much confidence in what you taught him to
do. Cant even think what he will be like when your done with his training. All I can say is THANKS!!!!!!!!!
Thanks so much for sending the pictures. It was a wonderful experience hunting with you and watching you
work your magic with those dogs. I was not able to find the address of Indian Creek, in Sussex County on
your web site. If I can find some excuse to get to New Jersey I would like nothing better than to call you to
reserve a spot for a day's hunt. I plan to return to Bonaventure next year, maybe a week or two later when the
leaves will be thinner and there might be a few flight birds down from the North. If you plan to be there, I would
appreciate knowing when so that I might schedule my trip coincident with yours. It would be a pleasure to
accompany you in the woods and watch you work again.
I just wanted to extend my thanks for all of the time that you spent with me today. As a novice, I feel much
more confident knowing the training "building blocks" that you shared with me. Experience is the greatest
teacher, and with all of your advice, I'm sure to make less mistakes. The family is ecstatic to have Sugar back
looking forward to hunting at Indian Creek in the fall.
Just a quick note to say how pleased we are with "Joe". As you know with our two young daughters and three
labs I was a little unsure on what to expect from our new pointer. I knew what his hunting abilities were but I
am shocked to tell you that not only has he become part of the family but is now the girls favorite! He stays in
the house with us and we leave him outside when weather allows and he will not venture beyond the yard
without us, even when the grouse are drumming 100 yards away!
I needed a working upland dog to guide with, I never thought that this bird finding machine would be such a
loving pet as well. Feel free to use me as a reference for both your ability as a trainer and the quality of your
dogs and their bloodlines. Keep in touch.

Thanks for having such a great Seminar. It was informative and your approach to teaching was effective.Using
dogs at various stages of learning showed how dogs should progress. Your training facility is second to none.
Using live birds made the experience real. I learned so much, I am sure that you have saved me from making
many mistakes.Your love and passion for your dog showed thru and inspired all of us.
Thanks for a great day
