If you need a dog trained to succeed in a hunt test, to be your companion in the field or to thrive in the home, we are your trainers! Tate and I truly enjoy working with these great animals in a natural environment, seeing them strive enthusiastically at what they love. We describe ourselves as “low-pressure trainers who never take ‘no’ for an answer.” Others recognize us for our keen ability to read dogs and figure out how to help them have success. They describe us as demonstrating compassion, work ethic, determination, and having high standards.

We train according to the standards of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) and the American Kennel Club (AKC). In 2015, dogs we trained ran in 13 NAVHDA Natural Ability Tests, receiving four Prize 1, eight Prize 2s, and one Prize 3; and 6 NAVHDA Utility Tests, receiving fivePrize 1s and one Prize 2. Our own LH Weim, Cami received the AKC Master Hunter Award. More about NAVDHA and AKC testing standards


At Martinsen's Red Point Kennel we train adaptable versatile hunting dogs and family companions. We will help you achieve your training goals for your dog based on a thoughtful assessment of individual needs. We’ll provide a strong foundation of socialization and basic obedience, ultimately developing your canine hunting companion for versatility in the field and water.

I'm on my 2nd Vizsla - after researching and speaking with 6 potential breeders Jenny and Tate instantly stood-out above the rest.....it was immediately clear this is their passion and purpose. They return calls, offer great advice, breed exceptional Vizlsas and train them to perfection.  After my dog was a year old I sent him back to Red Point Kennels for more training and got him back this Oct. I spent the weekend hunting with him and I couldn't be more impressed....  More Testimonials
