Reggie

Bill, thought I would drop you a note to let you know that Reggie ( formally known as Tanner) is adjusting great. He follows me everywhere and already retrieves well. We are working on crate training and he seems to be fitting in great with my family. We just love him. Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of such wonderful breed of dog. My family truly enjoys watching him learn. Thanks again.
Sincerely,
Corey and my new buddy “Reggie ”

Arlo

Dear Bill,                                                                                                           4/29/17

Arlo is a delightful puppy.  He is settling in nicely and we are making good progress on housebreaking.  He knows his name and almost always comes when he is called.  I know we need to get to always, but 90% seems good for one week in.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of buying a puppy from Bill Schaller.  It was a wonderful experience.  Not only did we come home with a beautiful puppy, but the larger experience we had with Bill and Terry Schaller was great.  Bill uses his website to communicate “news” about the puppies from the day they are born.  Over time we saw pictures of each of the puppies complete with temporary names (picked by his grandchildren), the puppies visiting a local school and other “adventures” that got them off to a great start on socialization.

Having the chance to meet both the parent dogs and the Schaller’s other adult dogs gave us a chance to see what our puppy could be like once he grew up.  They were all attractive dogs with delightful personalities.  It was a pleasure to interact with them and get to know them a little.

Finally, on the day that we picked up our puppy, Bill provided a DVD on training, a large bag of high quality food, an initial health report from a local veterinarian (the puppies already had their first vaccinations) and forms to be used to register our new dog.  All unexpected.  All very much appreciated.  Bill assured us that he was willing to stay involved in our puppy’s progress and having his experience and expertise to draw on is going to be a great resource.

My wife and I can recommend, without hesitation, buying a puppy from Bill for a wonderful experience that makes getting an amazing puppy extra special.

So thank you again….for Arlo and for everything else.  Paul

Roscoe 9 months

Hi, Bill:

I just wanted to give you an update on Roscoe, who’s nine months old next week. He’s showing great drive on finding birds. He eagerly pursues and retrieves downed pheasants now. He can still be a bit bone-headed about staying in range when he’s on the scent of a bird, but he’s really developing into a great bird dog. And he’s a fantastic companion in the home. This was taken this week at Major Avenue Hunt Club near Glencoe, Minn.1-Roscoe@MajorAve

Ellie Dec 2016

I hope the New Year is treating you well! I just wanted to give you an update on Ellie. She’s turned into an absolutely awesome dog.  She just turned six and she’s in her prime. We went to SW MN last December. It was just Ellie and I. We only ended up with 3 birds due to my terrible shooting. She flushed about 12 roosters within range and I flat out missed! Ellie was not happy!  Once the nerves settled down I started hitting them. Had a couple crazy 30 plus bird flushes!  Lots of hens. I attached a couple pictures.

Sassy 6 yrs

Hi Bill and Terry,
My name is Jennifer Booth. My father is Don Booth. Six years ago my dad got a beautiful English Cocker Spaniel from you they named Sassy. She is doing so good and I wanted to just send you an update.
My father sadly passed away unexpectedly in Aug of 2015. My stepmother Lynnette and I co-own sassy now. Sassy was very stressed and quite upset by my dad’s passing. She sort of developed seperation anxiety from it so we make sure other than a few hours a day that I work she is never alone. She has become my emotional support dog in the process.
I have been able to bond with her and even take her hunting just like she loved to do with my dad. She is currently enrolled in a class for canine good citizen and she starts this Tuesday. She has been such a blessing to me as she is my little piece of my dad. She loved him so much.
Sassy enjoys cuddling in the morning. She’s a big baby in the morning! LOL! She also enjoys hunting obviously, retrieving balls. We even got an automatic ball thrower and she can do it all herself! She barks in excitement! She loves to play in the snow and is extremely loving. She’s very attached to a stuffed pig that she unstuffed and it is now a rag shaped like a pig. She loves it so much we have to replace them once in awhile!
Thank you so much for such a beautiful girl! I love her so much!
Once my stepmother retires I don’t know at this point if she will take her back fulltime or let her stay with me as we are both pretty attached!! Lol It’s hard not to! If she does I will definitely save up to get another beautiful English Cocker Spaniel from you. She is just amazing!  I’m including a few pictures so you can see her today and one with her last hunt with my dad! :-)
Sincerely,
Jennifer Booth sassy-1

Dakota 2016

Dakota:  Everyone in the house has fallen in love with her. She is a wonderful companion. House training, kennel up, sit, stay, and all the rest of her obedience takes little to no effort. She just gets it!

I remember asking you about how to introduce her to the gun, you told me to just get her on bird. You couldn’t have been more right.dakota-2016

Izzy

I got a pup this summer from you — Izzy.  (I’m the sister of xxxxx’s and they have Mikko)   We love Izzy so much.  She is a sweetheart — affectionate and social.   She loves to play with all the dogs in our neighborhood and I think she has the instincts to become a good hunter when she is fully trained.
We have tons of dogs in our neighborhood and folks keep complimenting us on what a good and happy puppy she is!
I remember when I first saw Sage I thought what a gorgeous eyes she had and I’m thrilled that Izzy got them.                                 “Bill’s note:  Sage is the mother of Izzy.”
Take Care,

Rowdy 2016

I am taking the time to tell what a joyful adventure it has been having Rowdy in my life. He is the happiest,most loving pet I have ever had! As a pup, he loved cuddling and nestling as close as he could to anyone and everyone. Wild and yet so gentle with babies( I have a grandson born the day before R) He and Cooper(9) get along so well ! Cooper ,of course , is boss and often “tattles” when R is naughty. Rowdy loves his life here and leaping through the woods. He spends most of his time outside, exploring close by or going for a swim in the pond. As you see below, the muddy end is his favorite.  He is so smart and has a mind of his own,so we are still working on training. Often, he will not come in at night and I go to bed with him outside. Within 10 minutes, he is at the bedroom window alerting me that he is now ready.
If you have contacts in the area for training, please let me know. It is something he and I would both benefit from. It sounds as if you and Terry are off to a great start on the new adventure of retirement ! Wishing you good health and safe travels. Thanks for keeping in touch!     Dale

The bottom picture is Rowdy at 8 weeks, Bill.
