Message To Our Readers

After 75 wonderful years in service we have decided to retire our family hobby. We would like to thank everyone who has participated in our training programs and those who have helped us to grow our hobby over the years.

We've made many friends along the way and have been fortunate to invest our time in a labor that we love and were passionate about. Although we’ve trained our last dog and will no longer be taking any trainees, we have left our website up for now for you to look through since there’s still some great resources and pictures to enjoy. We wish you all the best and thank you for your support. Take care!

What Fongeo Kennels Offers to Hunters

  • We teach the dog to find birds with an objective ground, handles on command, steady to wing and shot, retrieving, and backing.
  • We specialize in staunchness on point, and a bunch of WHOA!
  • We raise our own birds (quail, chucker, pheasants) to work your dog the right way.
  • Here at Fongeo Kennels we do not just train your dog, we train you on: How to respond, How to handle your dog, and most importantly, How to correct your dog.
  • We also have a 3 month puppy training program to ensure that your dog gets started the right way.
  • We use high quality Diamond Pet Food for all our dogs.


The year of 1968 a record was made by 3X Champion FONGEO CHEETER SLICK, a 3 year old English pointer. He was registered in both the American Field and American Kennel Club. "PEPPER", as we called him, won 3 AKC major field trials with 30 days. The first 2 field trials in California and the third in Salt Lake, Utah winning the AKC Shooting Dog Championship. Today the Records still Stand!
