Shady Meadows Gundogs grew out of our passion to hunt behind beautiful, well disciplined, hard working hunting dogs. Like most people, we started with 1 dog, a classy orange and white female Elhew pointer. From there, our passion for watching the dogs work has grown. We started with staying in a lodge in north central Kansas, hunting with family and friends on private land and wild birds. We always came back to the lodge with more birds than the lodges paying hunters on the lodges land on wild and released birds. They finally talked me into guiding for them and that was the start of the business side of hunting.

Working on pen raised birds under the supervision of someone who knew nothing about hunting got old quick, so I struck out on my own and soon had clients from Georgia to California hunting only wild birds. As the numbers of clients grew, so did the need to have more hunting dogs to keep fresh ones on the ground at all times. That, combined with clients wanting to buy the guide dogs and puppies out of them, brought into existence Shady Meadows Gundogs.

Shady Meadows was carved from the woods of west central Missouri by my grandfather in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Construction was completed on the log cabin that we now call home in 1977. We purchased Shady Meadows from my grandfather in 2004 and began construction of the kennel buildings to move our operation. Our cabin overlooks a very well stocked fishing lake that provides excellent water training facilities for our German Shorthairs and Labrador Retrievers.

Originally, we started with breeding and training for what we wanted in a hunting dog. A close to medium range, hard working, strong nosed bird dog with tons of style. We found that a lot of our puppies started going to NSTRA guys around the country and thus was born our interest in foot trialing and then to horseback dogs as well to run on our trips in Texas.

We now keep several strings of dogs. Short range pheasant hunting dogs for hunting South Dakota and Kansas, medium range quail and pheasant hunting dogs for Missouri and Kansas and big running pointers for our Texas hunts.

We got off to a rough start with a full time trainer that really hurt our reputation by not producing what he said he was on about 10-20% of the dogs. If nothing else, it showed our customers that Im an honest guy because I had to replace a few dogs. Now Shady Meadows Gundogs has grown from just me and 1 mediocre trainer to a partner/professional guide out of Texas and 5 professional trainers that make up Shady Meadows Gundogs, Shady Meadows Outfitters and AB Joint Outfitters.

We now breed hunting dogs for foot hunters like us, foot trialers like my partner and horseback trialers alike. The training aspect of our business though still focuses on producing quality, high style, hard hunting foot hunter and foot trialer dogs. We also train Labs for upland and waterfowl hunting. We supply hunting dogs to dozens of plantations, shooting preserves and other outfitters along with everyday hunters.

We 100% guarantee all our puppies and dogs. We realize that for many of our customers, the decision to purchase a dog is a 10+ year commitment. Please take the time to explain to us your hunting and social situations that you expect your new dog to fit into. That way we can help you choose the right dog for your situation.

If we can be of any assistance, whether it be training tips, facilities advice, a new puppy or started/finished dog, feel free to drop us an e-mail or give us a call. We appreciate the time you have taken to learn about us and look forward to serving you in the future.

I recently bought a dog through shady meadows, I do not recommend. Dog not finished as advertised, cannot get a refund or replacement. Do not buy or put a deposit down on a dog unless you have seen in person.

I have a two year old dog from their breeding pair of Sarge and Heidi. Healthy male dog with solid 55-60lb field weight. Yes, he is a uniquely handsome dog...Often under-estimated by people, as he is not a huge big running fat northern monster, until they watch him bust brush and cat tails...he will wear the hair off of his face if I let him. Hunts hard and points solid with great downed bird finding ability. Does family activities and very social but will vocalize against threats to his territory and family. No doubt if I had the time to compete in dog events he is capable, but weekend warrior and companion duties keep him busy enough. Works close. Biggest strong points are his health and easy demeanor to train and please. Shawn and I talked a few times prior to purchase, and I hadnt followed up with how he was doing, so felt obligated to say thanks for a good all-around healthy animal. Mine does all I can handle upland and tracking. Havent had waterfowling opportunities yet, but with a jacket to stay warm, likely not an issue. People ask if I want to breed him after hunting or a visit to the house, so as an owner, that seems complimentary enough for me.

I bought my lab on Jan 1, 2016. I have been very pleased with him. He has been everything they said hed be. Easily trainable, very well temperament, crazy about feathers. Although I have not hunted him yet I think he is going to do very well. Donny and Shawn were both very helpful with information and tips. I live in town and have no trouble at all with him running off. In fact when we let him out to go to the bathroom we just let him run free in an unfenced yard. I would strongly recommend buying a dog from these guys. If I ever buy another one I will not hesitate to buy from these guys.
