Countryside Kennels - North Branch, Michigan

Countryside's Heart of a Lion (Stafford)

(stud service available)

75 lb Fox Red Lab Male.  Stafford has tons of drive, tons of ability, and tons of good looks to boot.  He comes from a long line of well bred dogs and has been an excellent addition to our family and our breeding program.


Brutus has become one of the finest dogs to ever come out of our breeding program.  His is the son of our certified pointer retriever "Rocky".

He is great in the grouse woods, pheasant fields, and the duck marsh, however he excels in the home with his family and friends.

A puppy out of Brutus has the ability to become a "once-in-a-lifetime" dog.

Countryside's Urban Cowboy

(stud service available)

70 lb Black Lab Male.  Cowboy is a sixth generation pup out of Countryside Kennels.  So much desire and easy to train.  Cowboy has become one of my finest and favorite dogs.

Marsh-Mutt's Masterforce

75 lb. Chocolate Lab.  Excellent pedigree loaded with Master and Senior Hunter titles.  Great looks, smart, and athletic.  Masterforce has it all. 

NPL Countryside's Hi-Point Doctor Fox

RIP 8-30-2018

60 lb. Fox Red Pointing Lab.  Doc has it all!  Great nose, strong natural point and possibly the most intelligent dog I've ever owned.  Doc is the grandson of Helm's Point Doctor Pt (2004 Outdoor Life cover dog).  He was bred into the famous Kellogg line of pointing labs to produce the "signature series" of pointing labs.  (i.e., labs with stylish high heads and stylish high tails)  In September 2008, Doc recorded an amazing 29 out of 30 possible points in his upland portion of the American Pointing Lab Association hut test in Williamston, MI.  On July11, 2009 Doc received his Novice Pointing Lab title from the Great Lakes Sport Dog Association.  Doc has thrown Fox red, yellow, chocolate and black puppies.

Countryside Kennels - Sires

After training thousands of dogs over 20 years, we have been able to hand select exactly what we are looking for in a dog.  Many of our Dams and Sires are not owned by us, but we have maintained the breeding rights to them.
