Welcome to Kirby Mountain Sporting Dogs

240 Locust Ridge Road  East Burke  VT  05832     802-626-5282

Our family’s business focus is the breeding of sporting dogs and training of all breeds. We are located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, the heart of grouse and woodcock hunting. We are a small, family-run business, allowing us to keep our hands on every aspect of breeding and training. We breed Brittanys, Labrador Retrievers, English Springer Spaniels, and English Cocker Spaniels. Because our puppies are special to us and their future owners, our breeding program is researched and maintained to ensure the optimum in health, temperament, intelligence, and performance in all our breeds. Since 1990, our business has grown with our family from part-time work to a year-round breeding and training facility for a variety of dog breeds.

As we look forward to the upcoming training season, we  are changing our long standing business hours. We are no longer scheduling any business appointments on Sundays or Tuesdays. In order for the dogs (and our neighbors) to have time to recover from the work and stress of the week, we are no longer scheduling puppy, training, or boarding appointments on Sundays or Tuesdays. We are happy to work with you to schedule other times; however, it is too chaotic for the dogs to have appointments seven days a week. Though we had advertised that we were closed on Sundays & Mondays, we made exceptions that may have appeared as if we were available. In the long run, this took a toll on the dogs at our facility and on us. We need time when there is not business traffic on our grounds so that there can be rest and recovery. We believe that in doing this we are serving our clients, their dogs, and our dogs in the most effective way that we know. Thank you for your patience and willingness to work with us on this transition.

Closed Sundays & Tuesdays - Open all other days by appointment only.
