Dogs for Sale

Ravenkeeper Gundogs prides itself in being a family focused dog training facility. All our members of staff are highly trained, caring and empathetic and animal welfare is paramount.

All Ravenkeeper dogs are kennel trained in our franchised kennel environment to complete their bespoke training. Once the dog is selected for a new family home, more indepth training takes place in their trainers home, thus adapting them to a home environment.

All Ravenkeeper dogs will be vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and deflead before coming to your home. Included in the Ravenkeeper aftercare package is the dogs vaccination card and details on the dogs background. Although we rarely find special cases, we do occasionally have to rehabilitate a dog that hasn’t had the best start in life. We believe every dog should have a loving family, and these dogs will need extra love and attention, so we must ensure they go to the correct home.

We provide speciality dogs for unique cases, for example therapy dogs. We are more than happy to discuss individual needs, however this will make the complete process of having a Ravenkeeper dog slightly longer as we ensure we have sourced the perfect dog who can then be trained to the specific needs of the client.

Lucy
We are so pleased with our Cocker Spaniel Lucy and the whole experience of re-homing her from RavenKeeper. Craig shared info on Lucy’s background and connected us with Dann, her trainer. Dann is brilliant. He informed on the process and service we would experience, and shared photos and videos of Lucy so we could get to know her. We also had a FaceTime call during a training session so we could see Lucy in action. Due to Covid-19 we had to wait a little longer to collect Lucy but Craig and Dann followed the regulations in place by the local council. When we collected Lucy, Dann gave us all the time we needed for the handover. Once home I had a behaviour issue to handle and Dann gave me some advice that worked perfectly. Special thanks to Dann, as we have a very happy Lucy.

‘We’re delighted with our choice to get our beautiful Labrador, Darcey, from Ravenkeeper. We got exactly as we were promised, a beautiful dog, perfectly trained. She has settled into our family easily and we all love her. Craig and Dan were brilliant and very professional. Dan’s training and sorting out logistics and handover were fantastic. We take Darcey everywhere with us and everyone comments on what a great dog she is and asks where we got her from. She’s brilliant with our two small children too and they adore her. Thanks so much.’ Liz, Roger, Harry, Edith and Darcey

Our first week with Lenny at our home could not have been better, what a character, so keen to please with a beautiful temperament and excellent recall. Travelled home well without a murmur despite a journey of over 200 miles and settled in straight away, a testament to his care and training with Dan. Totally different from our experience with another establishment. If you are looking for a pet trained dog we cannot recommend Craig and the staff at Ravenkeeper more highly. We are looking forward to many year's of love and company from the lovely Lenny.

Having just got our Chester from Ravenkeeper we have been really pleased. We have had updates and information from before seeing him, and ongoing after he has been dropped off. Everything was in order, ie; vets, vaccinations etc, and training as you would expect for a family pet. All the help and information we have had has been excellent.!

I have an 8 month old labrador who recently began pulling a lot to the extent that I no longer found walks with him enjoyable. I contacted Craig from Ravenkeeper Gundogs who was able to show me how to correct this problem behaviour in a positive way, whilst including me in every step of the training. I have been following his advice and guidance and saw a change almost immediately!!! I am now training daily and the rewards so far have given me the motivation to continue this and not give up. I would also like to work on recall around distractions, and how to greet people and other dogs in a calmer way. I will certainly be going back to Craig for help with this once we have mastered the art of heel! Thank you to Craig, I would highly recommend!!!
Vicky
I had my older staffy dog on Wagg dog food which appears to disagree with her now, I have tried other expensive alternatives then I found this site I contacted them and they suggested I use the Original 20 formula I have had her on it for a week now, she loves it and it saving me a massive amount in money as well she is happy and so am I great service thanks.
Lee
Hi I would just like to say to Craig and Claire it was a pleasure talking to you about bringing my dog up to be mated with your stud dog. The both off you only had my dog welfare at heart when I phoned up unlike some people who just want to cash in from their dog. I will keep you informed of our my dog is progressing through her pregnancy and if they is anything I need to know I will get in touch with you. If anyone is looking for a good stud and someone with a lot off knowledge about the dogs look no further than ravenfield gundogs. Thanks for everything.

Quick update on Lucy, first photo is Lucy practising her wait, she is doing really well, and a very quick learner, still head strong! We are carrying on with the fab training from Dann, the handover was indepth which has really helped us hugely so wanted to give feedback on that. Mac and I are very happy she brings so much joy into our lives. Thank you. Further update The team at Ravenkeeper Gun dogs are excellent, very good customer service, listened to our needs when we were searching for our four legged companion. Professional throughout. The standard of training is evident, our dog has settled in to home life extremely well, we continue with the training and know we can call Craig for advice and guidance.
Dan
RavenKeeper Gundogs were fantastic from start to finish. We had tried contacting many different companies for a part trained labrador and no one could be bothered to call back or return an email. It was so refreshing to have someone at the end of the phone every time I rang. Craig and Claire were brilliant, so helpful, answered all my questions and put my mind at ease. We have everything we wanted and more in Bella. Would highly recommend giving Craig a call, we will only be using RavenKeeper Gundogs in the future. Once again THANK YOU so much for all your efforts we both are extremely happy with our new addition to the family. Many Thanks. Dan Phoebe.

From the moment of speaking with Craig on the telephone to enquire about Hudson I knew that we were in safe hands. His professionalism and passion for the stud service he provides outshone the rest that we had enquired about. The original stud we had planned didn’t work out as well as we hoped and we had to follow our gut and make the last minute decision to change him. However Craig arranged the meeting for us at short notice and kept me informed throughout the whole procedure of what was happening. We took Skye to Claire however as Skye had a longer season than normal it meant we took her a day too early. Craig and Claire both assured me that she was more than OK to stay with them to see if she was ready in the next couple of days. At first I was a little unsure as Skye is part of the family, however both Craig and Claire put me at ease and I knew that she would be safe and well cared for whilst there. Claire sent me regular text updates to let me know she was alright and to our delight they had a couple of successful ties. I can’t thank Claire enough for looking after Skye whilst with her and thank Craig enough for the professional, caring service he has provided. Craig has answered my every question and worry and put me at ease throughout what could be a stressful time. Ravenfield Gundogs have gone above and beyond what I have expected from them and I would recommend them to anybody looking to breeding their bitch. Also a special mention to Hudson – he was such a gentleman with immaculate manners, gentle nature and extremely handsome and was everything we were looking for in a stud. I look forward to updating them in 4 weeks after the Ultrasound scan to let them know if we’re expecting! Craig has made it very clear that he’s only a phone call away to answer any questions or queries we may have over the next couple of months. Throughly delighted overall! Thanks again!

Craig and Claire at Ravenkeeper Gundogs have been very professional, efficient and friendly in assisting us with homing Gus. They genuinely care about their dogs and their forever homes, providing sensible and confident advise and training. They made our seeking a working dog a pleasure with regular updates, pictures and video clips as training progressed. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

My 8 month old Labrador “Poppy” has just spent two weeks in residential training. The initial meeting highlighted typical teenage problems – pulling on the lead, distracted by anything, overexcited when meeting other dogs and people and poor recall. I received regular updates via text and video of Poppy’s progress from Dan her trainer. After her short spell of training we are now back on track, she walks much better on the lead, recall is improved and she is much calmer around other dogs and people. She now has manners and is a pleasure to take out. Many thanks to Craig and especially Dan. Further update My 8 month old Labrador “Poppy” has just spent 2 weeks residential training with Dan who is one of Ravenkeeper Gundogs trainers. Dan kept in touch throughout via text and video. I had hit a brick wall with her focus, heel work and recall, since coming home she is much improved, being such a young dog her ongoing training continues with me now. She is a pleasure to take out now. I would recommend Ravenkeeper Gundogs and her trainer Dan who “Poppy” obviously adores now.

Craig was so helpful and knowledgeable, he kept in touch the whole way through our bitches pregnancy and was straight back in touch with any questions or worries I had, Hudson was also so kind and good with our bitch! Thanks for a brilliant service!
