We are Craig, Elizabeth, and Daniel Burns. Muddy Creek Kennel is a family business that we have operated
full time since 1994. Of course bird dogs and training were a way of life for me long before that. Hunting
with good dogs of all breeds has been an inspiration but.... the German Shorthair became my breed of
choice. Basically someone could set down and write out a list of the desired characteristics they would like
to see in their dog and someone will be raising a German Shorthair of that type. The genetics are that versatile.
We hunt Bobwhite Quail and Pheasant primarily....but German Shorthair Pointers will hunt anything-
anywhere. We train with Bobwhite Quail but the same dog trained with Bobwhite Quail will go to Idaho and
hunt Chuckar or South America and hunt Perdiz. We intend to operate Muddy Creek Kennel as our families
business as long as we have birds to hunt and bird dogs to train.... Repeat or referral customers are priceless
and new customers are our business. We want the dog you get from us to be the best dog you ever had.
Someone that has a really good dog and they got from us is what it is all about.
We have runs for 70 dogs, 3 or 4 stud dogs, 8 or 10 brood mamas, 12 or 15 dogs being trained for customers,
20 or 30 finished dogs for sale, 20 or 30 being developed and 20 or 30 pups growing up in the puppy pens.
Elizabeth calls us dog farmers.... She raises puppies, cleans, feeds and whoa breaks as good as anyone there is.
Also, not in the least, she names dogs and is my constant who's who directory.
We sell dogs several ways... the best way is for you to come here to look at dogs for yourself. Some customers
order their dogs in advance. We know what you want and pick one for you as we are developing this years
crop. Other people order a dog sight unseen. As far as my opinion goes, the best way to get a dog from us, if
you want it for next year, is to order one. We can pick and choose to get for you what you want. Whether you
come here, order a dog or get one sight unseen we want you to get the right dog the first time.
