At 6R Upland Kennels we strive to give the everyday hunter a dog they will be proud to show off to their friends. We started our business because it has always been my life-long dream to train dogs. It all started after I watched the movie Where the Red Fern Grows. Also, after hunting pheasants with my uncle Charlie and seeing his two shorthairs slam on point I knew then that I had to have one. When I was young my dad brought home every breed of dog you can think of, but never a German Shorthair. I tried to train every one of them to hunt, and some did okay, but they still where not a shorthair. Finally , after moving away and then coming back to Iowa I got my first real shorthair thanks to Rod Boggess and the madness had begun.
I helped Darrell Keenan train dogs and tried to learn as much as I could from him and then one day Rod showed up at my house, gave me my first Moesgaard pup, and away we went. As you can tell by reading this, breeding and training dogs is not a job to me its is my dream come true. My wife and kids have put up with my passion for a very long time. While training dogs I came across some Brittany Spaniels and found them to be a great addition to our kennel. This fit into our ideals of breeding high quality dogs that love to be around people.
We do not just breed dogs to hunt. We want our customers to have the TOTAL package dog that can be a great companion and hunting dog. If you are looking for that lifelong companion and breeder who cares more about the dog than the sale then you have found your breeder. We are a little crazy when it comes to our dogs, but when you purchase a pup or dog from us you become a part of our 6R dog family.
Again, we want to thank you for taking the time to look at our kennel and wish you great joy with your new puppy.
