Puppies are from imported British and Irish hunting and field trial genetics. All broodstock are working gundogs assuring our clients sound genetic predictability. Our sires and dams are properly English trained without force fetch or electric collars.

Our breeding criteria include:

  • natural gamefinding ability
  • calm temperament
  • biddabilty
  • health/confirmation

Wildrose offers AKC registered puppies (limited registration) in black, fox red and yellow, delivered with dew claws removed and the most extensive puppy health program in the business.

Each puppy is well socialized with daily human interaction, in a modern, comprehensive, health-care facility. Each puppy is exposed to our unique and comprehensive Super Learner Program. We socialize all puppies as if we expect to train them. In fact many do return for our training programs so we begin with this intention in mind.

When considering dogs of this caliber, soundness is an important issue. All sires’ and dams’ hips and elbows are certified, OFA or BVA (British). Eyes of all Wildrose dogs are CERF examined on an annual basis by Dr. Bill Miller, DMV, MS, DACVO, Ophthalmologist, whose practice is Advanced Animal Eye Care, 901-323-5203. All matings are cleared by DNA testing for PRA, CNM, and EIC. DNA is recorded with the American Kennel Club for authenticity of genetics. All puppies bred and sold by Wildrose Kennels are conditionally guaranteed against genetic hip/elbow dysplasia and degenerative eye disease for the puppies’ first 26 months.

Puppy Picking

The order of deposits received on a particular litter is the order of puppy selection. Deposits on puppies are recorded when received. Puppies are delivered at the kennel at 7 weeks of age.

A deposit reserves a pup on selected litters (projected matings). If we are unable to offer a pup as specified from the litters of choice, the deposit amount may be transferred to an available litter or refunded. NOTE: The mating calendar is a projection of planned matings. These projected matings are subject to change as to sire availability and time periods (heat cycles). Deposits remain as reserved with the dam despite changes in actual matings. Please check the mating calendar for updates.

Wildrose pups maintain AKC limited registration. Although Wildrose pups are AKC registered, their offspring cannot be registered with AKC unless done so in partnership with Wildrose Kennels. This allows Wildrose to focus on developing superior hunting dogs that are family companions. We sell gundogs– not brood stock. Limited registration does not prohibit the Wildrose pup from participating in AKC competitions.

At the time of puppy selection, a two-hour puppy seminar will be conducted to start clients off with their new pups “The Wildrose Way.” You’ll meet the sires and dams, tour the kennel, be provided with training and health care information, and see puppy demonstrations. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit and see Wildrose firsthand.
