...Why choose Bayview?

Bayview Registered Setters features extensive English Setter line breeding for over 50 years from our personal, proven and healthy grouse and woodcock gun-dog line. This tradition has resulted in natural, consistant pups with superior noses and style, not to mention incomparable dispositions and looks. But don't let their looks fool you.  Every one of our dogs has bird-hunting in their blood and they are happiest out in the field hunting with you. They point-scent, retrieve, and respond to lip whistle as early as 8-10 weeks.

Pups year-round, started dogs on occasion. By reservation only. References.

Our dogs were featured in the book "Feathered Tales" by Joseph A. Augustine. This book chronicles the adventures the author shared with his two English setters "Jacy" and "Ranger" across seven hunting seasons, while he searched for a North American upland game bird "grand slam".

"This is not a how-to book, telling readers who to hunt with or where to go. I wrote this book to tell a story, a good, old-fashioned adventure tale about some bird dogs, hunting and the life led while living a dream to complete my version of a 'grand slam' on North America's upland birds."
