I just want to again thank the Gaffke's for giving us the perfect dog. We just had to take Wrigley to the vet [normal checkup] and both the vet and vet technician said that he was such a well behaved, lovable dog. So thank you seriously for breeding such good natured, loveable, and beautiful dogs.

Our sweet Darton (named after the Archery company). He hasn't hunted birds but can track down a deer then come back for some solid snuggle time!

Our Maggie has brought us so much joy. She loves to please and snuggle. Huge fan of fires, she snuggles as close as she can (Foster X Coleman 2022). Gaffkes make the cutest babies! We love these girls! Couldn't imagine our life without them! (Also owners of Marley, Grif X Baylee 2010)

I enjoy Moses's company more than most people. People say you only get one really good dog in a lifetime and I sure hope that's not true because this is the one. Moses excels in everything that I've ever asked of him, whether it's jumping through ice into freezing water or just listening to whatever I tell him, even though he probably doesn't know what I'm saying. Most people like hunting with their buddies, but honestly, if I could choose a hunt with ten of my best friends or a hunt with Moses and I, I'd choose the dog.

Neveah is Heaven spelled backwards and the name couldn't be more fitting for her. I'm blessed to have her, she definitely is one of a kind.

We spent some quality time at our hunting property a few weekends ago. Muddy is always such a hunter. He will point at anything. I love that about these bloodlines of ours. (Grif X Wren)

So proud of our Sebastian (Reed X Eric 2015). After hundreds of hours training and retrieving practice, he joined us on a goose hunt where we actually found some geese!

First hunt back and she never missed a stride. 3 for 3 on retrieves. Wish we were better shots, she had a lot left in the tank. Dixie

A Gaffke Gun Dogs is the perfect mix of hunting and family dog. While ours is still young, she shows the nose and drive needed to excel in upland game hunting. When the hunting vest comes off, she is eager to be part of the family-- exploring, playing and traveling with our busy family of 5.

Darrel is still chipping away at the season. 9 months old and has the smarts of an older dog. So fun watching the wheels turn in his head.

Muddy on the boat.jpeg

Mudroll, aka Muddy, is one of the most beautiful and regal looking chocolates I have seen come through Gaffke's Gun Dogs. Muddy was born 2-24-11 from Grif X Mae. I've never potty trained a dog so quickly before. It was literally TWO days. At nearly 12 years old now, no one can believe his age due to the very minimal graying he has. He is very often still puppy like. Muddy out-fielded our friends Brittany Spaniel at just 4 months old when he locked up on a grouse and our friend didn't believe there was anything there. If only you could have seen the look on his face when that grouse took flight. This dog will pint anything that breathes and you better believe there is something to investigate because I've never seen him be wrong. I dread the day that something happens to Muddy but I know that when we heal and are ready, we will no doubt have another Gaffke Lab, or maybe we'll just have two.

Sage is on a roll this year, 52 retrieves so far! This dog blows my mind for being 1.5 years old and training her myself. It's definitely in her blood!

Dixie got her first goose! She realized real quick that they're a lot bigger than her goose bumper she has been retrieving. She was able to bring it back about 1/4 of the way. Pretty good for a 6 month old pup! Proud dad right here!
