Welcome to the home of Facey Kennels owned and operated by Mark Aaron Facey. Striving to produce superb bird dogs for the avid hunter and field trial competitor for over 15 years, dogs produced perform to the highest standards, posses exceptional confirmation, and have an outstanding drive to hunt for the gun. Located in Erie, Colorado, Facey Kennels specializes in English Pointers and trains all pointing upland breeds.
Facey Kennels strives to produce some of the best hunting and trial prospects. Typically Facey Kennels will raise prospects from puppies to around 2 years of age and then they are offered to the public as finished hunting dogs or competition trial dogs. Our english pointer lines consisted of "Honky Tonk Attitude" in the earlier days, to the white dogs of today out of "NCH Lester's Snowatch" and "NCH Millers Dialing In" lines. We produce 1-2 litters a year and each season only accept a limited number of client dogs for puppy development, formal training, and also trained retrieve. Facey Kennels pride itself with being a smaller operation, which allows us to spend more individual time with your dog resulting in a well broke, quality bird dog.
We have 160 acres of prime training grounds just 15 mins from the kennel that consists of CRP, dry land prairie grass, and other natural objectives. To provide as much wild bird exposure as possible, each year we take our dogs (and clients dogs) to areas such as Montana, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Where ever the birds are, we go!
*Dogs for sale (Puppies, started & finished dogs) are available at various times throughout the year, please contact us for availability and pricing.
