||Male Pointer sired by Champion Erin’s Whiskey River Price $2500
Roy just turned a year of age. He is in ND now running on wild birds and will continue to do so until I head for my winter training grounds in Thomasville, GA. He has a ton of point and is steady to wing and shot in point drills on a check cord. He is not steady to wing and shot on wild birds as that portion of the training has not taken place as he is still young.
Interested individuals can call the office and I will call them back to answer any questions they may have.

The documented imprinting stage for a dog spans the
developmental time frame of six weeks to twenty weeks of
age. The most crucial period is from eight to sixteen weeks
of age. It is critical that the dog be exposed to live
birds, the field, and basic consistent structure and
socialized with other dogs during this period for the dog to
maximize its full potential. When a dog in the imprinting
stage is properly exposed to structure and the elements of
field work he becomes more receptive to learning. Such a dog
will become not only a better companion but also a better
bird dog for the hunter.
A dog that has been exposed to critical environmental
factors during the imprinting stage has a mind that is open
to learning and it is a joy to work
with such a dog. We are
dog trainers. Letting us prepare your young dog for his
future training with you and having us take care of the
necessary foundational prerequisites is money well spent. Do
it right from the start. Then spend time with us and
formulate a plan for the direction to take with your dog.
A Stonecreek level I dog will have had a proper introduction
to scores of live birds and has had numbers of
birds shot over him. This dog
demonstrates strong pointing and hunting instincts. He has
traveled, is accustomed to the crate and is well socialized
with dogs and people. The level I dog is ready to graduate
to more advanced stages in training. His program has been an
extensive one involving clicker training, proper
introduction to low level e-collar stimulation, point drills
and field work.
We know how the dog trains. We know the dog is a bird finder
and has strong pointing instincts. The level I dog is a wise
investment and deserves
strong consideration by any owner.
The price of a Level I dog ranges from $2500 to $4000. The price is reflective of the experience and training the dog has had, where the dog is in training, whether the dog has developed in North Dakota with experience to wild birds, and the level of performance and style the dog exhibits.
Approximate age 1 year to 2 years
A Level II Pointer has had wild bird exposure during the summer and fall at our North Dakota training camp. The dog points with style but is not yet 100% reliable in holding point indefinitely. The dog is not steady to wing and shot at this point in his training although he is well advanced in controlled pointing drills on a check cord and is responding well to all facets of training. The Level II dog handles of foot and is well positioned to advance to a dog that will hold point with style and be trained to a level of steady to wing and shot if the owner desires. The price of the Level II setter is from $3000 to $5000 and is dependent on the level of training the dog is at and his experience on wild birds.
age 2 to 2 ½ years
The level III dog is ready to go hunting. The dog holds point with style and class, hunts in range and control, backs, and is fully obedience trained in the field. The level III dog is ready to put his field and yard training to work in a first year hunting season to gain the experience that will develop him into a polished veteran performer. George will discuss the needs of the future owner in order to develop the level III dog to handle in the range dictated by the game birds and topography he will hunt. The new owner will be involved in the selection process and is encouraged to see the dog develop. Upon delivery, George will ensure the buyer understands how to handle and maintain his new companion & hunter.
The price of the Level III Pointer is from $4000 to $6500. The price is reflective of the training and hunting experience the dog has had and whether the dog has been forced broke for retrieving. The price reflects whether the dog is going into his first year of hunting season or has had a year of hunting experience. Level three dogs have been in the house, are extremely social with people, other dogs, and travel well.
| LEVEL IV
age 2 ½ to 3 ½ years
A level IV shooting dog is a world-class, bragging-rights hunting companion. Only the very best of the best are developed to a level IV dog. The level IV dog holds point with style, is steady to wing and shot, backs and handles in control. This is a dog that has guided on our A team and has handled birds and hunting situations across North America. The level IV dog is a top shelf, experienced bird dog exhibiting style, class and impeccable bird manners. During the training and development of the level IV dog George will discuss with the buyer the specific aspects of training desired. The dog will be developed according to the range dictated by the covers the future owner will hunt. Whether the dog will live in the house or an outside kennel are all factors in developing and selecting the “Right” dog. At the time of delivery to the new home, George will work with the owner to ensure a smooth transition.
