Welcome to Merry Oak Kennel in Orlean, VA

Breeder of Llewellin Setters

We are a small family owned kennel in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.  We could tell you lots about Llewellins but there are sites developed just for this purpose, see the links to these sites in our resource tab.

We focus our breeding first and foremost on the health of our dogs. Our Llewellins are chosen for their natural abilities. This breed is meant to be a hunting dog and they enjoy being active. Their natural instinct is to hunt birds, they also love their humans, and are equally at home sleeping in your bed and playing with your family.

Many breeders only want to sell to hunting homes, we will not sell a dog that is not going to be an active part in your family. We encourage you to train and use your Lllewellin for its natural purpose. The reality is the majority of people do not get to hunt every month of the year. Therefore it is not fair to have a dog just languishing in a kennel, then being treated unfairly when it serves your hunting interest.

Our breeding program takes into count the dogs pedigree, tracking this insures the bloodlines staying true to the original purpose of the breed.  All of our dogs are FSDB registered and DNA tested.

We welcome you to visit our kennel in Orlean, VA.  Please contact us so we can be available to help you enjoy your visit to the fullest.
