Powder River Sporting Dogs is located in the heart of game-rich Bismarck, North Dakota on an 80 acre training facility. At any time there are between 100-200 wild pheasants on the property where our dogs get to work these wild birds on a regular basis. We also keep pigeons and chukars for our training program. The Missouri River is one mile away and our dogs get worked in the water on a regular basis (weather permitting). Owner/operator Brian Johnston is a retired small business owner with 35 years of hunting experience and now spends his time raising and training great bird dogs. We are dedicated to raising Italian Braccos with great bird drive with an intense will to hunt. Our goal is to create dogs for the foot hunter that will bring many years of enjoyment in the field and in the living room.
All of our Braccos come from hunting kennels in Italy
