WHAT A GLORIOUS GIRL!
My name is Mardi Hockenberry and my husband, Bob, and I fell in love with the English Setter breed when we brought our first two puppies home in 1979 from the late John and Peggy Childs of Button Ball Kennels.
Those first brother and sister littermates, Koty and Bristol, taught us all about life with English Setters. Koty was deaf and he taught me how to train with hand signals. Since my parents were very involved with obedience training, I wanted to show my dogs in obedience while Bob wanted to hunt with a bird dog. Back then, dog training methods were rather harsh and the soft nature of those sweet setters would teach me to follow a different path of positive reinforcement training. One can NEVER have a heavy hand with an English Setter! Now I enjoy obedience, agility, conformation and on occasion, Bob likes to take his gun for a walk with our lovely and birdy setters. Because I train as a relaxing hobby on a weekly basis, I need our setters to have a high level of intelligence, a happy working attitude without fear or shyness as well as healthy physical structure and stamina. Therefore, these are priorities when I breed a litter.
We live on a 200 acre farm in the rolling hills of Stone Valley in central Pennsylvania. We breed a litter now and then, concentrating on quality, not quantity. We offer very inexpensive kenneling to our puppy buyers when they need to go on vacations, free grooming and/or training to groom your own puppy and free game bird exposure if you wish to hunt. We welcome anyone who would like to visit, be it for a weekend or just for the day, to see our English Setters and to sit and chat while getting to know our "kids" and/or to reunite with puppies we have bred.

Due to NEW USDA/APHIS Law We follow this Disclaimer:
Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large number of other breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping puppies. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeder s that USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell dogs to know whether it is legal to ship a dog that the buyer has not already seen at the seller's location. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place at the breeder's premises.
This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the puppy of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service dogs being made available to those in need.
While we do understand the need to stop those who don't properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick puppies, we already have state and federal laws for those things.
If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a puppy from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your puppy shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.
