Doc's Bird Dogs

Veterinarian owned and raised.

Dr. Scott “Doc” and Caitlin own and operate Ankeny Animal & Avian Clinic in Ankeny, Iowa. Doc has been a veterinarian for 35 years. We bought our first setter in 1996.  Doc’s thought at the time was “I’ve never met a setter as a patient that I wouldn’t take home as a pet.” Caitlin was only too happy to greet the arrival of their first Llewellin who proved not only to be a marvelous pet but an amazing hunter for Doc.

We are a small hobby kennel – having a limited number of litters yearly. Our requirement for breeding stock is that they housebreak readily, make friends for us at our pet hospital, and hunt better than Doc’s buddies’ dogs! Additionally we border on obsessive about the quality of our dog’s hips as we know this is the number one genetic problem with Llewellin Setters.

Puppies will come to you well socialized, their dewclaws removed, and current on their vaccines (distemper, parvovirus, and bordetella, also rabies if old enough). They will also be parasite free, and will have been implanted with a Home Again microchip.
