Whether you're a bird hunter, pointing
breed field trial competitor, or a person who owns a bird dog as
a companion and wants to have a dog that can do what it was bred
to do - we offer training tailored to your dog's individual needs.
Take a few minutes and look at some
of the great dogs we had the pleasure to train and handle in recent
years - from Brittanies to Weimaraners,
and many pointing breeds inbetween - there's nothing like the sight
of a bird dog standing rock-solid and intense on wild birds...
With the Rockies as a backdrop and the beauty
of the surrounding landscape in "big sky country"...
it truly takes your breath away!!!
At Jim Heckert Kennels we travel thousands
of miles every year in order to run our client dogs in quality pointing
breed field trials -- from the east to the west, and from north to
We actively compete in AKC and American
Field trials across the country - supporting local pointing breed
clubs, as well as National and Championship events.

We're proud to have trained and handled
the 2006 AKC National Gun Dog Champion,
"Covey Up Johnny," a male Liver/White English Pointer
owned by Ray Knight of Albany, Ga. "John" outperformed
55 dogs down in Sutherlin, VA to win that prestigeous event. He
also went on to take Top Pointer at the 2007 AKC Pointing Breed
Gun Dog Championship in Nebraska!
We know that winning at trials is
only one aspect of proving the merit of a breeding program, the
other side of that coin is passing those excellent winning ways
on to future generations. Several of John's puppies have finished
their AKC Field Champion title -- and are winning in major AKC gun
