WELCOME - Thanks for visiting!
Nestled in the rich wild-bird covers of Central Maine, Woodcock Haven Kennels is the home of professional trainer/handler Al Ladd. For over 25 years, Ladd has trained grouse dogs for the most discriminating upland bird hunter and for field trial competition. He is also a successful handler, competing in wild-bird trials in the fall and walking quail trials in the spring.
Dogs trained at Woodcock Haven Kennels are appreciated for their class, well-developed manners on birds, refined pointing style and hunting experience. Puppies, started dogs and finished shooting dogs from fine English pointer and setter bloodlines are occasionally available
