|Redbones have been part of our life for over 14 years, they are a versatile breed that can
excel in a wide variety of activities and make wonderful additions to your family.
We have bred multiple UKC, AKC Conformation and Bench Champions along with
having ranked dogs in both registries. We are a small kennel that strives to breed a high
quality all-purpose hound. Some of the bloodlines our dogs carry are Blakesley, Sidearm,
Sierra, Turpins, and Sandy Creek.
We do not competitively hunt out dogs, but we train them basic hunting fundamentals. Our
pedigrees contain both hunting and show lines as we want to keep true to the breeds
purpose as a hunting dog along with dogs that are conformationally correct. We have
placed puppies in wide variety of homes doing a wide variety of jobs, Service dogs,
Search and Rescue, Show dogs, Big and Small Game hunting dogs, and Family

|Is A Redbone The Right Dog For You?
We love our Redbones antics but they may not be the right dog for every family. The breed as a whole
isn't common throughout the US so many have not experienced them in person.
They are a medium energy breed with moments of high energy. They are primarily a hunting dog with a
prey drive so they can be excitable and that is where the high energy comes in.
We find them low maintenance as far as grooming and shedding and do not need baths often. Some
ask me if they smell like a hound and I don't feel they have an odor, most of that comes with there health
and diet. Our dogs at most get baths once a month and bi-monthly ear cleanings. The hardest
maintenance about them is they should get weekly or bi-weekly nail trims as they grow quickly.
Redbones are full of personality and love to be around people. They can be goofy with serious moments
and really love to spend time with their families. I find them to be great with kids as they are a kid
wrapped in a dogs body.
Not all Redbones are barkers but that being said they are vocal and can be easily provoked to
bark(some neighbors don't appreciate that). They also make other interesting vocalizations..
squeak..whine..whistle..grumble.. And I am sure there are more than I am listing here. They are an
expressive dog and will find a way to get what they want. (if you think you're bed and furniture are off
limits think again.)
They can be stubborn to train. I find them to be very smart, and that is what can make training a challenge
for first time owners. I feel if you start training them manners young they will always remember them as
they are older, but if you wait they can be harder to train.
If you are thinking of getting a Redbone and i haven't answered your questions please do not hesitate to

|What is a Breed Standard?
It is a picture in words that describes each breed
of a registered dog. For all licensed breed shows,
the Kennel Club Breed Standards must be used
for the judging of dogs. The judges read the
standard and, form a picture in their mind of an
ideal dog. When we plan a breeding our goal is to
have a puppy born with all of the attributes listed
in the breed standard.
Here are the breed standards for both registries
