Jim and Denise Keller operate Wildwind Kennels in rural Knox, Maine with the help of their seventeen year old daughter, Deanna.
Jim has worked for some of the finest sporting camps in the state of Maine as a professional guide specializing in grouse and woodcock hunting. With over 29 years of dog training experience, Jim has successfully trained spaniels that have achieved in excess of 70 field and national championships.
His expertise and success was recognized when Jim was honored with the prestigious 2014 Hogan Award as the top Professional handler in the United States and he was named second in 2015.
Denise is a very active participant in our program assisting with kennel operations and chores while we are on the road or training late.
Our philosophy is simple: positive re-enforcement through birds, fun and repetition. Everything in our program is based on building confidence.
We look forward to helping you achieve your goal of having a first-rate hunting partner.
