Testimonials

I was very happy with what I saw when visiting Phillips Gun Dogs. Our visit started in the kennel area where our soon to be new puppy's parents were located. The kennels were very clean and all the adult dogs looked to be in great shape. The dogs were very out going dogs and would meet you at the kennel gate. They all looked like they were ready to hunt. When we moved to the garage we were greeted by a litter of puppies. They were in a very clean kennel and they all wanted to be loved. It was great to see the clean conditions of all the kennels. Phillips Gun Dogs not only breeds great German Short Hairs they love and care for their dogs. We were looking for a male and Chad removed the two remaining males from the litter. The puppy picked us before we picked him. He was very alert to his surroundings and wanted to check everything out. He has proven to be a very smart puppy and he is learning something everyday. He is 10 ½ weeks old right now and he is house broken, sits, stays, comes, retrieves, and did I mention POINTS. I have been working him with a wing and a string and he will hold point and retrieve. I would recommend Phillips Gun Dogs to anyone wanting a good healthy hunting buddy. We look forward to next season but I don?t think the birds are looking forward to it.
Thank you Chad and Julie,

For a top quality dog, look no further. These parents have worked for me at Oak Creek Sporting Club and have done fantastic!! Great noses and also great retrievers. I have also placed 2 of his other pups from his last breeding on the ground and already in their first year are doing a fantastic job. No birds get away from these two!! Don't miss this opportunity for a perfect pup, and if training is an issue, just ask Chad he does a fantastic job with that also!!

I met Chad Phillips while hunting with him at Oak Creek Sporting Club. I have always been impressed with his dogs and how he worked with them. They are extremely good, well controlled bird dogs. When I decided to get a hunting dog for myself to replace a family pet lost to cancer, I called Chad. Last December I picked up my new hunting companion - Jordy an eight week old German Shorthair Pointer. At approximately six months of age, I had Chad work with Jordy to introduce her to birds and guns. He did a really good job and kept me informed of her progress during her training. At this point, I can't report on what a great hunting dog Jordy is but I can say that I can't wait for hunting season to get here so I can get her out in the field - hunting. Anyone interested in a good dog and an exceptional trainer can't go wrong with Phillips Gun Dogs and Chad and Julie.

If your looking for a trainer with a firm but gentle hand, a trainer that keeps you informed, and a handler that will return your dog with the same personality you sent him with, Chad and Julie are the trainers for you. We own a 1 yr old yellow lab named Diesel. Chad worked with Diesel the first time at 6 months of age exposing him to guns and birds. We hunted with him sucessfully in the fall of 08 . Diesel was well prepared for both birds and guns. Diesel again spent time with Chad this past spring with Chad adding some of the finer hunting aspects of dog work. IE; Steady to flush, Sit to a whistle, directional retrives, & overall handling. We are looking forward to fall of 09 where we can put Chad and Diesels combinded skills into the field. I would recomend Chad and Julie as trainers for any breed of bird dog. The total experinece was enjoyable for both us and our dog.

I met Chad a little over a year ago. We did breeding between his female and our male. That is when a good friendship started. I have a female that has the foundation training that was done by another trainer about 2 years ago. I did not plan on any further training. After talking to Chad back and forth a couple of times, I decided to let Chad train Hannah for her Senior Hunt title test. It was a lot of work in the beginning because I had hunted with her for 2 years already. She had a few bad habits. Chad did a super job in getting Hannah ready for her Senior Hunt test. This spring we are going to go for the Master Hunt title. I have also enjoyed going to the hunt tests with Chad and his daughter Sabryn. It was fun camping with them and staying in one "fancy" hotel. Thanks for being a good friend and trainer.

When looking for a trainer for a gun dog I would highly recommend Chad. I am not a owner of a GSP but brought Chad my two year English Setter to make into a gun dog. Not only were the results fantastic but I might have convinced Chad that these setters are pretty good also. I think you would be hard pressed to find a better trainer for you gun dog no matter the breed, his patience and methods for training are a proven winner. Thanks Chad for making my setter a great bird dog.

I bought a male GSP from Chad in June of 2010 . As I told Chad at the time I had never bought a trained dog before. Bird season opened today in OK. This is the first time Trooper has been out bird hunting with his new owner. I was very very pleased with the job he did today. Birds were hard to find around here but Trooper never gave up and worked hard all day long. I would highly recommend a dog from Chad to any one.

I have a 4 year old black lab that was given to my by a friend when he was around year and half old. He was something else when I got him did not want to do anything that had to do with hunting. About 6 months ago I was referred to Chad, by another friend who had his dog trained by PHILLIPS GUN DOGS, also known as Chad Phillips. I spoke with him on the phone prior to talking to a bunch of other dog trainers that said my dog Scout is too old to be trained. Chad told me to bring him down and let him see what is going on with Scout. Chad said lets put him through a force fetch program and see how he does. My dog Scout (Black Lab) never has played fetch before because he never new how to, i tried and tried to play with him but he would never pick it up and bring it back to me. The 6 weeks that Chad had scout was the best thing that had ever happened to Scout and my family, we are big duck hunters and now that he is trained we can enjoy Scout and hunting more. Scout was a very troubled dog when he first came and saw Chad, but something about PHILLIPS GUN DOGS changed him and myself. While Scout was in training I went and saw him twice, and every time I saw him he progressed a lot, and all of the other dogs looked great. Kennels were always clean, dogs looked great and healthy. Chad has a great family that cares just as much as he does for the dogs. Another thing I liked about PHILLIPS GUN DOGS is that Chad will give you weekly videos of your dog and his/her progress he or she is making. Chad called me the other day to see how Scouts progress is doing, scout is so happy to play fetch now and he is having fun. The last thing I told Chad is he has a gift from God, he knows exactly what the owner wants and works that into the dog.
Thanks for everything Chad.

Having been referred by a friend to Phillips Gun Dogs by another breeder I have had no problems. All the questions I had regarding the breeding style and traits sought were promptly answered and have proven true now that my female is reaching six months. I cannot say enough about the quality of our new family member and we cannot wait to get her in the field this fall!

As I am new to the german shothair breed, Chad Phillips answered every question professionally. I was able to go to see my pup numerous times and was treated great. And as far as my pup, she is doing great. With some more work before next season, she'll be worth every penny!! Thanks alot Chad and Julie!

We have a 3 year old from Phillips Gun dogs that has been a fantastic hunter and family dog. Works close, naturally backs and is a joy to hunt with. Additionally, Chad did a great job training our dog and preparing her for the field. This is our third GSH, and they have all performed well in the field, and we have had them all trained, but I have to say that our experience with Phillips Gun Dogs has been the best, and I would strongly recommend Chad, as both a breeder and for training!

I can't wait till Chad has another batch of future hunting puppies to sell. I was too late this time. He has beautiful puppies with a high quality paper trial. His kennel and dogs were well maintained and clean when I visited his home. I wish I could of bought one of his puppies last week. Great dogs at reasonable prices. The only problem was they were all sold. Maybe I will get my chance this summer?

We are very pleased with our female pup we bought from Chad, Julie and family. She has just turned two and has her second bird season under her belt. She has done great and is all we ever wanted in a bird dog. Chad did a wonderful job of training her last Summer. She was trained to be steady to wing and fully ready for us to use in the field in about four weeks. What a great honoring and retrieving dog she is. We will definitly go back to the Phillips house whenever we are looking for a quality dog and quality training.

Chad, I could not be more pleased with our new puppy (born on Thanksgiving Day 2009). Remington is so smart and such a good friend to our older (12 yrs old) shorthair male Ruger. We look forward to bringing him to you sometime this spring for help on his training. He already knows how to get a cookie by sitting. Thank-you for all the time you took to be sure we got the right puppy for us.

I personally have never bought a pup from Chad Phillips, but I had the chance to do the next best thing. And that is the chance to hunt with his dogs over wild birds. I have hunted with Chad Phillips and his GSP for many years. I love to see him bring a new pup with some training to the field for the first day of hunting and learn while running along his more experienced dogs. Even better, I get the chance to see these same pups now dogs each year progress into extremely reliable pointers. Watching a dog point, and then the others honor is one of the coolest things to witness. Chad puts the quality and quantity of time in training his own dogs as well as taking on the training of people’s dogs that need that extra training to get their dog field ready. Raising and breeding GSP is not just a job for Chad, but the whole family takes part of this task that they all love so much. The kennels are extremely clean and maintained. There is a sense of unspoken pride that is given to each dog. On my last visit to the Phillips home, I was able to see a whelp of puppies that hardly had their eyes opened. One could tell that these pups were well tended to by the clean pen and the full round bellies on each of them. I would highly recommend without hesitation purchasing one of the Phillips’ pups. The bloodline is quality, and Chad is a breeder who genuinely wants for you to have a high quality GSP.

Benz, our German Shorthair, has quickly become a member of our family. It is apparent he will be a great hunter, and I can't wait to get him into the field. From arranging the times to view the litter to scheduling field training, Chad has been very easy to work with. If you are looking for a quality German Shorthair, I highly recommend checking out Phillips Gun Dogs.

Chad, I can't wait for the weather to finally straighten up so that me and the girls can go out to Oak Creek again and do another chukar hunt. Last Dec was a blast!!!! When we get together that is all we talk about. Your dogs did an excellent job and were first class. Michaela is talking about a puppy from you and possibly even Marcy. I will tell all my friends that you and your dogs are bar none the best we have ever hunted behind!! See you soon!

Phillips Guns Dogs are high quality shorthairs bred to perfection. They are well mannered and excellent hunters. I would definitely give this breeder, and dogs, a 5 Star rating. After hunting with owner and his dogs, we purchased an amazing female pup, with excellent instincts, and very loving. She will surely be an excellent hunter in the years to come.

Chad, Thanks for a great hunt at Oak Creek Sporting Club! My boys and I had a blast. Watching your dogs work was amazing. All the way home the boys couldn't stop asking for one of your puppies. We will have to talk in the near future and if you can get me a puppy and train it like your other dogs it would be worth every penny!!! Take care and see you soon!

I work with Chad and his family on taking care of their dogs and with their breeding program. They have the best interest for the dogs at heart and do an excellent job of selecting for breeding and training these dogs. When we were looking for a pup we wanted a great hunting dog, but most importantly an excellent family dog with our children. I have one of their pups and he is doing great in the field and as a family pet. I would highly suggest considering them for purchasing a pup.

Chad raises some great dogs. He spends a lot of time working with his and clients dogs to ensure they get the most out of their companions. I recommend Phillips Gun Dogs to everyone I know.

I would highly recommend getting a dog and or professional training from Chad Phillips at Phillips Gun Dogs. I have hunted behind many GSPs over the years but none have been as well rounded as the dogs that Chad breeds and trains. We hunted behind a number of Chad's dogs in the winter of '08. Two of them were Tucker and Tess. They both throughly impressed me and convinced me to get my first hunting dog ever from Chad. All of his dogs listened very well in and out of the field without Chad having to be forceful with them. They worked in front of the entire group in the field locating birds, staying steady to point, flush and shot and honoring the other dogs point! I was amazed with Chad's ability to get all of his dogs to do this time and time again. This proves that he has top quality blood lines in his dogs and a reproducible training method. Since I got my GSP (ACE), which came from a litter out of Tucker and Tess, Chad has done an outstanding job to help train, not only my dog, but me a first time hunting dog owner. I am confident I will have a dog this spring that will making hunting very enjoyable. I train my dog with Chad an average of twice a month on birds. He is only eight months old and already pointing, steady to flush and shot! When we decided to get our dog we had to have one that would not only be a good hunter but a good family dog. Ace has been great with our two year old little girl and with all the neighbors. He is a quick learner about the house rules and has brought much joy to our home. This all undoubtly stems from his genes because when I visit Chad's house his pack of GSPs are very welcoming and great with all of his kids.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with Chad as a breeder and also a guide. My wife does not hunt, but she was very impressed by Chad's training protocol's. Our female german shorthair "Gauge" is a year old and will be ready for the field this fall. We consider her to be "advanced". Great disposition, will be an excellent hunting dog and family pet. We admired Chad's training techniques, of being patient and letting the dog realized its own instincts. Chad also has a wonderful family and I mention this as it carries over into how he treats his dogs. I would highly recommend a dog from Chad. We also adopted another dog bred by Chad, her name is Ellie, and she also has excellent hunting attributes and she and Gauge have grown to be quite the pair.

Chad does a wonderful job training, he takes the time to learn about whatever breed he's working with. I've been taking my Griff Fenway out there for the past year now to be trained and within the first visit he had him excited to be hunting! Chad is very educated and passionate about what he does and would recommend him to anyone looking for a trainer or a breeder.

I've been very impressed with the male GSP I got from Phillips Gun Dogs. Chad definately applies all his years of experience into every dog he trains. Not only does he breed the quickest learning dogs I've owned but they are also very family friendly. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a naturally birdy and obedient dog and the best training you can get. I look forward to taking Miles to him again to continue his upland training. Thank you Chad.
