About Us​


Well most business websites have a typical "about us" page that normally tells you how the business got started and all about their employees.  Well Prairiefire isn't your typical business.  We are just a normal couple originally from western Nebraska, and yes cornhusker fans, that love dogs and hunting.  We both grew up hunting as kids and always had a dog of some sort in our families.  TJ and his brother always had several dogs/labs and trained them to hunt.  I have had several breeds over the years, but always been extremely fond of all pointers, mostly Britney’s. 


So to move on, about 6 years ago is when TJ's hunt for the right Chesapeake began.  Several phone calls, lots of web searching and MANY emails later we found Kim and Dave Peckman/Spinnaker Ridge out of KS; and so our Chessie life began.  Kimber has stolen the show, from AKC show title to HRC hunting titles along with falling in love with several professional photographers and dog handlers.

We are blessed to have met such great people along our journey not only to help Kimber develop as a dog personally and professionally but to help us develop our training techniques and knowledge of all hunting breeds.  To continue to expand and grow, TJ has recently become the Kennel/Training Assistant at Wind Wagon Retrievers out of McLouth, KS.  Yes, that's right folks... we moved to KS.  Jeff and Marion Crable have treated us like family from the start and we are excited to join in on their expansion.  

Fall of 2021 we expanded and stood up our own kennel and training space.  A new year will begin in 2022 with Prairiefire Kennels and our clients.

I thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little bit.  Welcome to our page and come back soon... we are just getting started and many more great things will be coming very soon.
