ABOUT KAJ LARSON

Meet Kaj Larson, the renowned owner of Hunt'em Up Kennels, celebrated for producing champion gun dogs with an off-switch. With an impressive track record, Kaj's dogs have achieved remarkable feats, such as winning the prestigious GSPCA Field Dam of the Year in 2021 and earning titles as Field Trial Champions, AKC Champions, and UKC Champions. 

 

Hunt'em Up Kennels is owned and operated by Kaj Larson. Kaj grew up hunting and was chasing birds long before a bird dog was ever involved.  After losing a wounded rooster pheasant, he decided he needed a bird dog.  Buddy was his first hunting dog.  Looking back, Buddy was probably anything but spectacular.  However, he was a dream come true for a young boy who wanted a bird dog. Kaj had the opportunity to own and hunt over many breeds of bird dogs since Buddy, but for him it was the German Shorthaired Pointer who stole the show. His passion for the breed led to Hunt'em Up Kennels.
