Weeland background


We've only had Jitka (Yit-Kah)-for 5 days and she's learned her name as well as some target training. She's smart and very eager to please! She loves retrieving her ball and other toys and is happy to just pass out in my lap too. Looking forward to many great years in the field with her! As for her breeder, Ben, we couldn't be happier with the professionalism he showed, and more importantly, he really cares about his dogs and it's obvious in how well he treats his animals. Very clean facility and the pups were well adapted to the outside, extremely alert and active! Hope he's still around when we are looking for another pup! - Brandon and Laura Lindsey


Hi! I just wanted to let you know that the 5 weeks of training my pup went through with you has paid off. We took our pup out the other day for his first hunt and he was awesome at 11 months old. The best part is he knows how to turn it on and off when he is in and out the field, He is a great house dog and is all business in the field. Just thought I would check in and give you a quick update. Thanksl -Sammy

Happy first birthday to Weeland's Charles of Bald Lake (Charlie) and all of his siblings! We are so thankful to have such a great dog. We are trying our best not to get another but it's hard to resist! He has the best temperament ever and is such a beauty. Thanks Ben! Carmen


Hi Ben- Mollie is doing great. She's about 42 pounds at 8 months and is just a hair taller than our 7 year old GSP. She loves chasing the birds in the backyard and now likes the white moths that hang around the plants! When inside, she loves laying in the sun, chewing on her toys and at night loves laying between my legs under the blanket while sitting on the couch. My 40+ pound lap dog!! We cant wait to get her out hunting! She is fitting in well with the family. Jodi

Ben, just thought we would update you on our pup. We had male #2 from Zeus and Jewels from May of 14'. Shep is doing great! Sorry it has taken us a year to update you! We are so happy with him and couldn't be more excited for him to hunt this fall! Here are some recent pictures! He's been a quick learner, great in the house, and has a fantastic nose! We will be looking for another pup next year, we will definitely keep you guys at the top of our list. Hope all is well! Kyle


Just wanted to let you know things are going great with "Charlie," son of Zeus! Within the first week he was 95% potty trained (accidents were my own fault!), knows his name, "come" and "Sit". We are working on shake, stay etc. As soon as I clipped a leash on him, he trotted like he was going for "Best in Show". :) You probably should just send me a bunch of business cards, he is a beaut, brains and looks in one package. He is already breaking hearts all over the place. Thanks for everything!  Carmen

Ben, I got a pup from you from your Cooter and Harley litter from September of 2013. I want to let you know that he is doing great and we are preparing and looking forward to our second season together. We did great on pheasants and waterfowl this past season and we are planning on hitting the grouse woods hard this coming season as well. I am thinking about adding another GSP and was wondering if you ever plan on doing another breeding between Cooter and Harley? If so I would be interested in a pup. Hope all is well! Mark

Ben - I thought I would give you an update on the pup you trained for me. When I brought her to you she didn't know a thing (which was my fault), but after the 6 weeks she spent with you she was a different dog. She much more enjoyable to be around and everyone comments on how well behaved she is. I can't wait to get her in the field this fall. Take care Ryan

Ben , Finn's doing great ! He is fully potty trained and was introduced to his first dead ruffed grouse ! I let him play with it a little and then did a dead drag which he scented and locked tight at 9 weeks !!! Amazing quick learner and a pistol! I keep forgetting to snap photos outside working him. Ben thanks again for everything! Keith


Hello, I am just writing to update you on Odin the pup that I got from you in October of 2013. He is doing great! I never had a dog that was so easily trained. He is doing very well in his first season of hunting, already having a couple dozen roosters shot over him. He is also a more that capable waterfowl dog often out retrieving my neighbors field bred golden retriever. Not only is a good hunter but he is also a great family pet for my wife and two young sons. He is full throttle in the field but more than content taking a nap in my recliner while I watch tv. Thank you for a wonderful dog if the time comes that I decide to get another there is no doubt who I will get it from. Thank you, Matthew

Hi Ben, We just wanted to give you an update on how well Zieger is doing (Male #2 from Fritzie & Cooter Sep 2013 litter). We have only had him for a little over one month now and he is already potty trained, knows 'sit,' 'down,' and has already been pointing! He's great with other dogs and very gentle with our 3 year old nice and 1 1/2 year old nephew. We get compliments on his demeanor and looks wherever we go and we've actually given out your name and website a few times now. We also wanted to thank you for being so easy to work with and breeding such an amazing pup! We will be sending pictures as you need to see what a handsome dog Zieger is becoming! Thank you again. Ross & Andrea

A quick update on Willie Nelson (male #4 from Harley and Cooter).  He is doing so well and growing quickly!  We love having him around.  He has brought so much energy and fun into our house and we just can't get enough of him.  He has learned very fast.  Already potty trained, pointing at balls, bumpers, and other toys, and we have had him on a trip to the game farm as well!  Our hunting guide let him make a trip around the pheasant pen to sniff the birds.  Willie pointed a hen that had gotten loose outside the pen then tried to chase her down.  So funny.  Thank you so much for the great pup and easy process of getting him!    --Scott and Jackie

I just wanted to say that Chubs is doing very well and we could not wish for a better dog. His temperament is absolutely amazing, impressive actually. I?ve only heard him bark once, which is kind of shocking to me. He is learning quickly, having fun, and making himself right at home. We take him everywhere us and spend a lot of time with the little guy. Here are some photos we have taken over the past couple of weeks. I hope you enjoy them and we will definitely send more as he ages. Again, Thank you for the great pup. -Matt

Just thought we'd send you some new pictures of Butcher. He is about 60 lbs now, still filling out a bit. Just an awesome dog! We get so many compliments on him and have refereed a bunch of folks your way! Sue S,

Hunter is doing great, a natural born pointer! Just thought I would share a picture of him and some of his success. I have been able to get him out a few times this fall and will get him out a few more times this winter (Game Farms). Nothing better than watching him work, walking up to him on a point and getting a rooster! Oh and he is a handsome dog! Take care, Randy P. (Purchased Hunter in August of 2011, born in June of 2011) Randy P

Max is doing great. He is a very smart puppy. He catches on to everything fast. I cant wait until hunting season next year. He is already pointing everything. He is also great in the house! Thanks again!!! Mark

Wanted to get you a few pics of "Gunner" (finally got him a name). figured it fit with all the miles he already has one him!. he has been a really good puppy!! pretty good at sit, lay down, come and of course NO. also has the house breaking part really good!. Took him out yesterday and did a little shooting and he didn't seem to mind. got a few birds in his mouth and he was good with that too. Thank you for bringing him to SD on your way out hunting! he has really helped with filling the gap of not having Kipper. got a long was to go, but we got a good thing started!!  Kresta

My husband took Ella out on her first pheasant hunt in SD this weekend. On day 2 & 3 she figured it out & was pointing & retrieving to hand. Real good at finding downed birds in the cattails & thick cover. She could hunt all day & still have energy to spare! She has the bird game figured out now & loves it. Simply put, she kicked butt! Everyone was very impressed & we are happy. She even earned her first stitched from a barbed wire fence. Chandra
