About Greg


     Greg Dixon is a 20+ year professional field dog trainer. During that time, he has piloted Irish Setters, English Setters, Vizslas, Gordon Setters, German Shorthaired Pointers, Weimaraners and German Wirehaired Pointers to the top of their breeds' standings, including National and National Amateur Championships. Greg has also trained dogs to the Master Hunter level in hunt tests and NAVHDA Utility titles. But most important to him is your good old hunting partner!

     Greg feels the key to successful training is getting your dog on wild birds. Greg offers wild bird training trips to Texas and North Dakota where your dog can encounter native birds in a training situation. 

     Greg Dixon at Backwoods Kennels offers training for your pointing dog year round - whether winter in Texas, summer on the prairies of North Dakota or at home in western Wisconsin.

     Greg is dedicated to training your dog for hunting, field trials and hunt tests. Your dog will experience quality care and training in a controlled environment by one of the most experienced dog trainers in the Midwest.
