RESERVING A PUP
All current puppies and planned breedings are listed on this page. Please read and scroll down. We are always accepting reservations on current and future litters. A nonrefundable deposit of $600 is required to reserve a Paint River Llewellin Setter puppy.
In the event that you have a late reservation and there are more reservations than pups born, your reservation is automatically transferred to the next litter where pups are available or you have the option to wait for your female’s next litter if there are vacancies. Please understand this might be one year later.
All PRL puppy purchasers are required to purchase the PRL Vimeo On Demand video series prior to bringing home their pup. We want to insure that every step is taken by us to help your puppy succeed not just in our efforts in our breeding program but in our raising program. This video series must be purchased when your pup is 4 weeks old. This will allow you time to become familiar with the PRL program prior to your pups arrival.
PRL CLIENT SALE POLICY
All PRL puppy owners must own their own home, have a fenced in yard (physical or electric) and have their PRL pup live indoors with them as a family companion.
OUR BUYERS ARE FAMILIES THAT ARE LOOKING FOR A LOVING FAMILY COMPANION THAT HAS EXCELLENT BIRD DOG POTENTIAL ON WILD BIRDS. WE DO NOT SELL TO HOMES WHO INTEND TO BREED OR COMPETE UNLESS THEY ARE A PART OF THE PRL PROGRAM.
DUE TO THE SOFT INTELLIGENT NATURE OF OUR SETTERS— PRL PROHIBITS THE USE OF FLANK COLLARS IN TRAINING STEADINESS AND CLASSIC FORCED FETCHING METHODS ON OUR PUPPIES IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT.
THESE METHODS WORK WELL COLLECTIVELY FOR MANY BREEDS AND TYPES WHEN DONE PROPERLY. HOWEVER, CERTAIN LINES OF SETTERS, INCLUDING OURS, THAT HAVE A SOFTNESS AND VARIABLE TRACKING/STALKING/POINT STYLE DO NOT DO WELL WITH CERTAIN TRAINING TECHNIQUES.
WE BREED SETTERS THAT WILL STALK AND SET AT TIMES. FLANK COLLARS STAND THE POTENTIAL TO DISALLOW OUR SETTERS TO BE SETTERS TO A DEGREE. WE WANT TO INSURE THAT ALL OUR BUYERS ARE ENCOURAGING THEIR PUP TO BE WHAT WE HAVE BRED THEM TO BE.
In the event PRL plans on keeping a pup(s) from a litter, PRL may not select clients’ pups until 12 to 16 weeks of age. Otherwise pups are scheduled to depart or be picked up by their new owners between 7-12 weeks of age. Most litters are released 8-10 weeks of age. Release dates are determined most often once litter is two weeks old.
PRL HEALTH GUARANTEE
Our Llewellin puppies have their receive several dewormings, and one or two vaccines depending upon age at the time of pick up. Paint River provides a three-year health guarantee, providing you follow our health and replacement puppy guidelines, on any congenital diseases that visibily impact the dog’s health.
COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH SCREENINGS
PRL uses Embark Veterinary (click on this link to learn some more) the leading advanced DNA testing company in the country. Embark Veterinary is a research partner with the university of Cornell. Our Breeder Kit tests for many different genetic disorders, inbreeding coefficients, genetic relatedness for mean kinships, cross referencing levels and locations of homozygosity and much more! All PRL breeding dogs undergo this DNA testing in addition to vet exams for overall total body health for heart,eyes,and hips.
Missy planned for Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Missy is a spectacular grouse dog. She has an exceptional nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Missy’s range is 0 – 50 yards, averaging 20 – 40 yards. She checks in every couple minutes; if ever out of sight in the first place and spot on hunts for the gun. She’s unbelievably light on her feet. Missy’s hunt style is certainly that of a tracker— very cat-like and may stalk and point in closer to the bird to set up a shot opportunity. Missy is a calm, quiet, sweet girl. Just a real gentle nature about her. Missy has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Missy weighs in at 38 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Missy on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
AZAADI planned Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Azaadi is a high octane little girl. She is a true dog and sticks birds hard and fast. Azaadi’s range is 0 – 100 yards, bouncing most often between 40 – 70 yards with a lot of forward motion hunting and a moderate amount of independence. She’s an intelligent, fiery little girl that hunts at a very quick pace. Super nose, incredible retriever and great stamina. In the Native American language her name means “aspen.” Azaadi weighs in at 34 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Azaadi on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
Omiimii planned for Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Omiimii is a grouse finding machine. She hunts like a cat as much as any I’ve ever seen. She has an average nose but my most stealthy tracking dog that has incredible focus and over the years has trailed hard running ruffed grouse over hundreds of yards into a beautiful point for the perfect shot opportunity. Omiimii is very cautious in the grouse woods with incredible natural staunchness. Omiimii naturally honors. This little girl is a fantastic grouse dog. She checks in often and hunts for the gun beautifully in a quick and slow manner. Omiimii’s range is 0 – 50 yards (first season range was up to 90 yards), averaging 20 – 40 yards. She is my most heat tolerant girl of the entire pack. She has produced the very best natural retrievers PRL has produced to date. Every friend and client that has hunted over all my dogs all favor Omiimii in the grouse woods. She is such a fun dog to hunt behind. In the Native American language her name means “dove.” Omiimii weighs in at 30 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Omiimii on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
Stella due late March 2021
Stella is a phenomenal grouse dog. Quality nose, naturally points, backs, and retrieves. Stella’s range is 0 – 80 yards, averaging 40 – 60 yards. She checks in every few minutes but does have her own independence on the mission. She has a beautiful gait and moves smooth through the grouse woods. A very true dog, if she goes on point the bird is usually going to flush soon thereafter the hunter’s arrival. Stella has a very soft mouth when handling birds. Just a pleasure in every respect. Stella is a calm, quiet, sweet girl. Stella weighs in at 38 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Stella on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
PLANNING ON A MAY 2021 LITTER
Waawaate is a highly intelligent with a ton of tenacity. She is a daughter of Widget and Duncan. She has a beautiful gait, a very forward hunter, hunts at a range of 30-70 yards on average. She is a true style dog, hunts with a high head most of the time. She has a very tenacious attitude. She’s a quality retriever. In the Native American language her name means “northern lights.” Waawaate weighs in at 34 pounds. Brains, toughness and nose is this girl in a nutshell.
See more photos and learn more about Waawaate on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
Name’ planned for Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Name’ is a daughter of, Missy and Duncan. She is Duncan with a sprinkle of Missy as I like to say. She’s a quick tracking type dog that’s connected to the gun, superb nose, awesome retriever and simply an all-around as solid as they come grouse dog. In the Native American language her name means “she who can find tracks.” Name’ hunts 20 to 70 yards and settles in the pocket around 20-40 yards the bulk of the time. She weighs in at 34 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Name’ on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
Jiibay planned for Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Jiibay is a super easy handling girl that is as stress-free in the grouse woods as they come. Superior nose, a boat load of caution and incredibly light-footed. In the Native American language her name means “ghost.” Jiibay is a true type dog and represents beautifully. She is very connected to the gun and hunts between 30-70 yards the bulk of the time. A real low key quality retriever that gets the job done. Jiibay weighs in at 34 pounds.
See more photos and learn more about Jiibay on our Dams page and on social media as you scroll back during the hunting season months.
Ina’amii planned for Winter 2021/Spring 2022
Ina’amii is fast little tracker out of Omiimii and Zhingos. She handles grouse terrific on the track and has shown excellent ability across the board. In the Native American language her name means “she who points a certain way.” In her first season she had one of the best that a PRL pup has had that has stayed here for assessment in their first season. Her range the majority of the time is 30-70 yards but usually under 50 yards. Can’t find a better retriever than this soft mouthed fanatic! At 30 pounds she’s shaping up to be a wonderful successor to her dam, Omiimii, in the breeding program.
