To everyone at Mabe Kennels. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Kalie has been a great addition to our family. She is by far the best GSP we
have ever had and we have had them since 1977. Our vet said that it was nice to
hear of a breeder that cares about the temperament of a dog and not only the
looks. Her temperament is fantastic. She is calm and the training you guys did
for us really paid off. We have been working on her hunting and at only 3
months old she locked on point in about 5 minutes. The only thing that bothers
us is that we did not find you sooner. Here are some pictures of her, she is a
beauty. Everyone stops us to find out what kind of dog she is. Thanks again.

I'm sure you'll get
another one of these
down the road, but I
just wanted to send you
a 6 month update on
Halsted. He was the pup
we purchased from the
Johnny and Joplin March
I want to start by
saying we absolutely
love him. He is an
excellent addition to
our family. He
absolutely loves our
Weimaraner and Vizsla,
more than they know what
to do with. He is loving
and very well behaved.
He passed basic
second in his class to a
3 year old german
shepherd. He was right
around 5 months at the
time. We are now on our
way to working on
and doing private
lessons before the class
starts. He continues to
do very well and even
impresses the head
trainer where we attend.
While he can be stubborn
at times, he is also
quick to learn and
please and darn cute
while doing it. His
future also holds some
tricks, agility and
possible dock diving. He
loves swimming so that
is great. We are just
making sure to wait
until his growth plates
I attached some pictures
and a video compilation
that we threw together
from him swimming last
weekend. He has
maintained his mostly
white color and is
weighing in around 50
pounds at the moment.
Hope you enjoy and we
are very pleased and
happy with him. We get a
lot of questions about
him and are proud to
pass on the
Thank you so much for
our amazing puppy!
Just wanted to give you an update on Lexi whom we bought from you in 2013. She
is doing great! Full of energy and is becoming quite the hunter. Since
bringing her home, I was a little concerned
how she would get along with my male GSP who just turned 7. Well it wasn’t long
until she let him know who was boss! She terrorizes him…lol. However, when
it’s nap time she makes sure she has
to be laying up against him. Cutest thing you’ve ever seen. She weighs in
about 50lbs. Even though she wasn’t pointing that great when we picked her up,
her points are rock solid and more intense than
i’ve seen in many dogs. She gets so low to the ground with her points you would
think she is laying down. We still are working on her bringing the birds back…lol
Anyhow, I just wanted to send you a picture of how she looks today. I couldn’t
be happier with this little ball of fire. Sometimes I think she is crazy she
has so much energy.
Take Care and thank you for the exceptional dog.
I just wanted to check in and tell you what a fantastic addition to our family
Reese is. We celebrated Reese's 2nd Bday on August 1st and could not be more
happy with her. She was from Sadie and Hendrix's litter. She was purchased as
a family dog and running companion and she has proven herself in both roles.
Reese loves to run with both my husband and I and the minute I grab the leash
she is at the backdoor waiting. She also enjoys hiking with us and can handle
anything we throw at her. We take her with us everywhere we can and people
always stop us and ask us about her and comment on what a beautiful and well
behaved dog she is. Thank you again for providing us with such a wonderful
dog. We are starting to talk about possibly adding another dog to our family in
the next year or so and we will be back for another of your pups. I have
attached a picture of her so you can see how beautiful she turned out.

Mike and June -
I just want to thank you
for the tremendous
efforts you put in and
how you go out of your
way for your clients.
Today I checked your
website and saw the new
pictures of our little
Pearl out in the grass.
What a joy to be able to
watch her as she grows.
We can hardly wait to
see videos of her!
Thank you so much for
making the distance
between our house and
yours as close as my
Ed and Jan
want to share with you
how much we enjoy Brody.
He is affectionate,
and a joy to have as
part of our household.
Here are pictures of
Brody taken Memorial Day
weekend on is first boat
outing. He took to the
water like a natural,
and playing. He was very
helpful while we were
Brody is a handsome dog
and continues to get
comments whenever he’s
out walking or playing.
This is Ruger! He is
from the litter of Magic
and Hendrix in June
2011. He is really
nothing short of an
amazing dog. We are
more than satisfied with
him. Ruger amazes us
every day with how
intelligent he really
is. He is a great
family dog and very good
with our son Michael. We
are always getting
compliments on his
behavior and good
looks! He loves to hunt
and is always on the
trail of something even
if its just in the yard.
The sight of a gun sends
him strait to the door
ready to go! Thanks so
much for a great dog,
companion, and family
member! We would send
anyone your way in a

Hi Mike I just thought I would send you some pictures
of my pointer Jack. He was born on 7/16/11 from Hendrix and Molly. I could
not be happier with Jack he is a great house dog calm and loving and a beast
in the field. Thanks again Mike for Jack .
so much for taking the time to show us your kennel on Saturday. We were so
impressed with your beautiful dogs. Every on of them absolutely gorgeous, calm,
& so friendly. Your knowledge and experience reinforced our gut felling that we
found the right place to get our puppy. You can add " hot ticked" to my color
choice (now that I know that term!)

morning, Mr. Mabe,
just wanted to send you
a quick note to tell you
how our Hudson is doing!
Hudson is weighing in at
50lb at 6 months, so we
are sure that he will be
a big boy. He has a

everyone, and wants to
play all day long. This
picture was taken in
Northern Michigan this
Christmas where he
absolutely loved being
able to run around to
his hearts content. We
have not been
disappointed with our
little guy and can't
wait to spend our first
summer with him!
Thank you again for
giving us such a
wonderful addition to
Mike & June:
We are sending you some hunting photos of Lexi (Abby & Edgar), to show how she
is performing. She will be a year old on February 20. The third photo is her 3
year old cousin Jennie (Sadie & Johnny), with Lexi. Lexi is honoring Jennie's
point of a
Chukkar. Both dogs are well behaved and we greatly enjoy them. As
always, I highly recommend your GSP's and
your training to anyone!

Here is Jackson at 6 months and 1 day. Thanks to
Mike Mabe at Mabe Kennels for a great addition to our family
Luger is 2 year old on
March 8th and
he is doing great. He is
a real workaholic. Over
the last 2 season’s
we’ve managed to shoot
about 100 birds over
him. He has great style
and a monster nose.
Luger is also a great
dog around people and in
the house. Thanks for
the great bird dog and I
recommend you to
everyone I know looking
for a GSP.
This is absolutely the best place to get your next family member.
mike! My boyfriend and I just
purchased our newest little
family member from you a couple
weeks ago, and I wanted to let
you know how wonderful she is!
We named her Ellie, and she's
the sweetest little puppy. About
a year and a half ago we got our
first dog from you guys, and we
just fell in love with the breed
and wanted to get another one!
They are both the BEST dogs
either of us has had, and they
just adore each other! We
already brag to all of our
friends about how amazing your
dogs are! Thank you for your
Until we need another puppy,
Just wanted to send a couple more pictures of Jackson. He has moved right in!
He and the 8 yr old GSP continue to be best buds. She really helps to run off
that puppy energy. He has such a great personality we have enjoyed having a
puppy in the house again.
We are so glad he went thru the training program - that has made such a big
difference in getting him socialized and enabling us to add to his list of
commands. And the DVD is great - something to cherish and look back on as he
Please add this to your letters of recommendation on your website.

I am writing this letter to inform potential GSP
owners of the care and quality demonstrated by Mike
& June Mabe.
We selected our pup and contracted with Mike to
provide Basic Obedience training. We are not
disappointed. Brody (our male GSP) is a true delight
to have as a pet. Although the first few days, in
transition from kennel to city living, were anxious
for Brody and us, we managed given the thoughtful
advice and direction from Mike.
I heartily endorse this kennel operation. The
kennels are clean, well managed, and thoughtfully
arranged. It is evident from your first visit
that you are dealing
with a QUALITY breeder.
Larry & Kathy
Hi Mike – I just wanted to reach out, say hello, and give you an update
on Cam. He is such an amazing dog, incredible personality, bundles of
energy. He loves to play fetch, runs all day, hasn’t met a dog or
person that he doesn’t love and once he works off all his energy he
really enjoys curling up for a nap. Everywhere I go with Cam he
receives compliments galore!
She is absolutely perfect!! She is wonderful and
gentle with all of my nieces and nephews and plays well with all of the
dogs in mine and Joes family. She adjusts well to all of the new places
we take her too! We have obedience class on Mondays and she catches on
quickly! I can't wait till she's a year old so I can get her agility
classes! I know she'll succeed in that for sure! Her vet says she's very
healthy and beautiful. Piper and I have ran into three of your customers
already! Two of them got their GSP's a few years ago, one will be
picking their pup up soon, Doyle, from Magic and Hendricks! We were on a
walk with Piper the other day and a family of three came out of their
house because Piper was so beautiful-they had to see her up close and
find out her breed. Joe and I sing your praises to everyone and have
given your info to a ton of people! I hope you and your family are doing
well! Once again, Joe and I can't thank you enough for this perfect
little puppy! You'll hear from us soon, whether its another update or to
get in line for another one of your gems!
Hi Mr. Mabe!
Piper is wonderful!!! She is well behaved, obedient-even sits as soon as
my 6 year old niece tells her to, and my personal favorite quality of
hers: she loves to snuggle. Everyone is surprised when we say she is
only 5 months old. Joe and I are enjoying every minute with her!!! Thank
you for such an amazing dog!
I am not usually the type to send in letters of recommendation, but I
feel this is one time I should. We got Willow from you just about a
year ago now. First and foremost we were looking for a family dog. I
was hoping that we would also get a dog that would be at least slightly
inclined to do some bird hunting. Well be got both. Willow is
fantastic with our 4 and 8 year old kids. Not only does she love to
play will them she seems to know the limits of each of them. On top of
that she has made a top notch hunting dog. I have to admit I did not
put as much work into training her as I would have liked but ended up
taking her out on her first hunt at five months. She quickly learned
what we wanted her to do and can point bird amazingly well. It came
natural to her. I actually had a good conversation with another GSP
breeder at the hunt club and he was amazed at what the dog was doing at
7 months. Well, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful dog and let
you know that I will be back one day for another one of your dogs.
Attached you will see a few pictures of some of her early hunts.
Katie are doing great. They
love playing with each

Dear Mike & June~
A quick note to let you know that Jazzy has been with me for 2 years now
and continues to delight my life. She is affectionate, awesome with kids
and has a strong yet manageable prey drive.
Swimming is a favorite pastime of hers. Here's a short video of her
showing off in the pool. Feel free to use it and use me as a reference.
My Mabe pup has spoiled me and I'll never get another dog from anywhere
just wanted to write you a quick email to let you know how pleased we
are with our new addition. We got a puppy from you last March and she
was from a litter of Prudence and Hendrix. She was the only all liver
female puppy which was exactly what we were looking for. She is a family
pet first and eventually my husband will like to make her his hunting
companion as well. We have two small children (5 year old daughter and 2
year old son) and our dog, who we named Luna, is wonderful with our
children. She is their best friend and plays alongside them outside and
also is very obedient to any of their commands. She is a very smart dog
and a quick learner. We had very few issues with her from the very start
and she has just progressed into a great dog that is a pleasure to have
in our home. We constantly get compliments on how beautiful of a dog she
is and her overall demeanor. My in-laws also purchased a puppy from you
about 6 months after we got Luna and they are the best of playmates.
Luna celebrated her first birthday on January 5th and she currently
weighs about 61 lbs.

I wanted to
send you some updated field
photos of Jennie and let you
know how Jennie is doing. She is
almost 2 and a half-years-old
now. She is steady to
wing/shot/fall and she does this
without me ever having to use a
check cord when she was in
training. It is so nice to have
a dog that is close working and
steady throughout the hunting
sequence out in the field. She
retrieves regularly now, it just
took a lot of positive
encouragement and patience at
the right times while she was
growing up/developing. I would
highly recommend your GSPs and
your training to anyone!
She did amazing!!! Held point till the bird was flushed
Just wanted to give you
an update. Purchased Luger back in
November from you. He is doing great
took him out on his first hunt this past
weekend. He did really well. Had some
really nice points and some good
retrieves. Very impressed with him being
only 5 months old. Hes still got a long
way to go but hes got a good start.
Heres a picture of him. He decided to
sit on all the birds while we were
taking pictures. Will recommend you to
Hi Mike! It's been almost seven weeks
since we picked up Josie, and we couldn't be any happier with her. She
is such a wonderful addition to our family. We continue to work on the
training that you started. She is ALWAYS ready to work with the wing. We
took her to Bass Pro Shop last week, and people were amazed that she was
such a well behaved girl at only four months old. Everyone commented on
how beautiful she is. Maybe we will come and get her a "sister" soon!!!!
gorgeous Porter born of Sweet Judy Blue Eyes an Sir Ruger.
I have been meaning to send you a note to tell you how happy I am with
Pete. He was by far the easiest to train dog I have worked with so far.
I started hunting him last year at 5 months old and he was just a
natural. By 7 months old he was holding point rock solid even if the
bird was moving around. I know when I had talked to you for the first
time you were very confident that your dogs are outstanding in the field
and also as a family member. I would gladly talk to anyone of your soon
to be customers if they need some re-insurance that your kennel has
outstanding dogs. I have attached a few pictures for you. One of him on
a rock solid point at 8 months old at Des Plaines conservation area.
Well you’ve done it again. Jeff picked up
on the 8/12 and he is another fantastic addition to
our family. Again, I would like to thank you for the
exceptional bloodline you have. I thought with Baron
we had found a diamond but Jaeger is taking on that
title also. So now the Flaws’ household has two of
Mabe Kennel’s diamonds. Baron is now retrieving from
the lake and his muscle tone is fantastic in
addition to the fact that he is one of the finest
all white GSP’s out there (I’m quite partial to him)
there isn’t a sporting store that he’s been in that
he hasn’t received praise on his looks and his
manners so thank you for that. But now with Jaeger
we can see his hunting potential already and he
hasn’t even been introduced to his hunting prey yet.
When he goes outside, he stops, focus’ and lifts his
paw immediately and does the stare down not sure
what he’s focusing on but he’s destined to have
hunting in his blood. And I’m 100% sure that when he
makes his travels with Baron to Bass Pro Shops or
Cabela’s he will also be a head turner…. And on a
hunting note… I’m sure Jeff will be truly satisfied
with his choices. Thank you again for putting very
proud smiles on our faces as well as in our hearts.
We’ll send pictures soon on Baron.
