Epps Kennels


Site Map


  • For over 60 years we've trained dogs and owners by building a solid foundation for mutual learning, working together, understanding each other, and most of all growing and nurturing the bond between each other...


  • Since 1951, we've bred, raised, trained and campaigned pointers and retrievers from coast to coast. To date, we have trained and finished 2 AKC National Champions, 2 AKC Dual Champions, over 40 AKC Field Champions, and approximately 3,900 placements in registered AKC Field Trials. Unfortunately, we never tracked the number of gundogs we trained over the years, but a conservative estimate is over 2,000.

Client Photo Gallery

  • Some of our clients share pictures of hunting trips, competition and other activities they enjoy with their dogs. The pictures on this page are organized in alphabetic order by first name. It's a fairly long page, but one we're very proud of. There are some outstanding accomplishments, great hunts and wonderful pictures!


  • The goal of our breeding and training programs are to provide the absolute best English Pointers, German Shorthairs and Labrador Retrievers available anywhere. We are very competitive in the field and pride ourselves in being able to breed, raise and/or train spectacular hunting dogs. When you go hunting or compete with your dog and you think you enjoyed shooting the birds more than you did watching your dog perform, then we didn't breed, raise or train your dog to our expectations.


  • Here you will find some very kind words from some very dear friends and clients. Some have only had one dog trained by us and others, like Mikio, have had numerous dogs over many decades trained by us. All have been a joy to work with and a blessing to know.


  • At Epps Kennels we are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality training.  Our training programs include basic obedience, gun dog training, steady to wing and shot to complete competition training for both pointing breeds and retrievers.  Each of these programs are designed to have your dog ready to hunt or compete at whatever level an owner would desire.
