As breeders of AKC Gordon Setters since 1970, we are committed to producing puppies that are healthy family pets, hunting companions and of course the next generation of top show dogs for our program.  We carefully plan each litter based on the AKC standard, health, and temperament.  Generally we will plan one litter of pups per year or every other year.

Our Gordon Setter puppies are raised in the country (see "Our Homes" page) on an impressive combined 125 acres!  We have built our entire lives around making sure our dogs have plenty of room for exercise and mental stimulation.  We custom built our home to include an entire wing of the house completely dedicated to the dogs.  When we moved here in 1969, it was exclusively for enough room for our dogs and horses.

We have bred and shown around 75 champions which includes multiple Best In Show winners, multiple National Specialty winners, and you would have even seen our dogs on TV at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club, AKC Eukanuba / Royal Canin Invitational, and Purina Invitational shows.

My Mom was an AKC licensed All-Breed Handler and I started showing when I was just 4 years old.  With my aunt and uncle also being judges, this is truly a lifelong endeavor!

Our start in Gordon Setters was in the late 1960's.  A registered Gordon Setter named Count of Blackmore was surrendered and my mom took him home. She was immediately taken with these regal dogs and was committed to getting his AKC Championship and Companion Dog certificate which she accomplished easily.  Four years later she bought a female locally named Jennifer Gay Lady, who was out of the famous hunting Gordon, Tanny Bay.  Eventually she found a suitable stud dog to breed her to which produced, Am/Can Ch O'Hillock's Divine Sarah.  Sarah was the dam of Multi BISS / BIS Ch Heatherhill's Battlestar, our foundation dog.  Stephanie Walter was the owner of Sarah and the co-owner and breeder of Battle.  To this day Stephanie of Heatherhill Kennel is still an integral part of the Hillock team helping to produce these wonderful dogs.
