Scott & Roxanne Young - 3721 183rd Street - Russell KS 67665 - 785.483.3758
Scott and Roxanne Young own and operate Woodhaven Kennels in the "heart of Kansas’ pheasant and quail country". Woodhaven is located at the crossroads of I-70 and highway 281, in central Kansas. They are assisted by their daughter, Caitlin. Scott has been a Certified Professional Guide in Kansas since 1991. He, along with his wife, Roxanne, owns and guides exclusively for LaSada Hunting Service. This is a full-service hunting operation featuring great pheasant and quail hunting over superb flushing and pointing dogs. He has been training and hunting over springer spaniels since 1990. In addition to developing his own training techniques, Scott has spent time with some of the top gun dog trainers in the country. Roxanne is a top notch trainer in her own right. She oversees all of Woodhaven’s training programs - from basic obedience to the finished flushing and pointing dogs. She is very active in our breeding program. Roxanne has fallen in love with the English cocker spaniels… their hunting abilities, companionship and charms. She has been busy adding several high quality English cockers to our kennels. Caitlin is the youngest member of the Woodhaven training and breeding program. She began training her first springer at age ten and she continues to assist in the day-to-day training of the springers and cockers. Caitlin is in charge of our puppy socialization program and works with our younger dogs on their basic retrieving skills. Our dogs, and those we train, are exposed to birds, birds… and more birds. Without birds, you can’t have a bird dog. Our philosophy follows that the top trainers in this country and abroad believe in consistent repetitions using a soft and gentle touch, lots of positive reinforcement, socialization, plenty of fun and tons of bird contacts. We strive for perfection from ourselves, our dogs, and the dogs that we train for others. We work hard to provide each dog owner with a top-flight, first rate gun dog and companion. We can customize a training program to meet your needs while developing the abilities of your dog. If you are looking for a first class gun dog, then look no further. Whether you choose one of our fine field-bred puppies from field champion bloodlines or one of our started or finished gun dogs, you won’t be disappointed. All of our English springers and English cockers are bred from field champions that have proven themselves in AKC dog events, tournament hunts and our own hunting service. Many of our dogs are from imported British working stock and field champions. All of our dogs are from working (hunting) stock. Their hunting skills have been honed by countless hours in the field in pursuit of upland game. We believe in superior genetics - and to that end, we have sought out the best, most genetically talented dogs that are available.
