Welcome to Kick Em Up Gun Dogs.
Our philosophy comes from several years of working with dogs. A dog that is bred for a purpose is intelligent, eager to please and just wants to be trained. Whether it is for competition, hunting companion or a family pet.
Our dogs are selected from some of the top working and conformation bloodlines from around the world. We Select for temperament, trainability and drive. A pup with these qualities is more likely to take directions and finish the task at hand. Our pups are raised and handled by our family, temperament tested and will have contact with other dogs and animals (cattle & horses etc.) to insure proper socialization. All of the pups have live bird contact at least twice before they are 8 weeks old to insure that we place them properly in either a pet, show or hunting home. We do all the necessary health testing and have a health guarantee on all of our pups and started dogs. We belong to the National Vizsla Association, Vizsla Club of Eastern Iowa and The German Shorthair Pointer Club of Eastern Iowa. When you get a pup from us we are always here to answer any questions you may have about the breed, events, health or training. No matter if it is 6 days or 6 years after you get your pup. We are very proud of our dogs so our web site is packed with pictures of our dogs, puppies and breedings that have gone on to be successful for their new owners. I hope you enjoy our website and family.
Steve & Rod Zobel and our families.
