Celtic Farms &
Celtic Farms and Kennels is committed to helping young get involved with Field Irish Setters. Are you interested in having your own pup and training it to be a hunting or field trial dog? Our “Celtic Kids” program makes that happen each year as a lucky winner takes home a FREE Celtic Farms Red Setter pup.
The Celtic Kids program isn’t new. We’ve been awarding pups to lucky interested boys and girls for many years. Many of you will recall that Roger Boser/Ned Le Grande story where Roger as a child wrote to Ned telling him that he wanted to have a kennel full of champion red setters and asked Ned if it would be possible to acquire one from him. Ned’s response was, in summary: “Build a crate and send it to me and I’ll give you a puppy.” Roger did; Ned did also and the tradition of gifted puppies commenced.
Following Ned LeGrande’s example, Celtic Farms and Kennels decided to annually award puppies to deserving boys and girls yearning to own our spectacular red setters.

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS
INTERESTED IN THE CELTIC KIDS PROGRAM:
Please have him/her sit down and write me a letter telling me why he/she is interested in obtaining a Celtic puppy, how he/she would train it, how he/she would hunt it, a little bit about himself/herself and his/her parents, where he/she is from, as well as anything else he/she thinks I might be interested in.
Conditions are as follows:
1) the first word in the dogs registered name must be “Celtic’s”;
2) photos and notes will be sent to me at least every 6 months telling me how the puppy is doing;
3) the puppy MUST be hunted; and
4) associated transportation costs must be paid by the lucky winner.
My intent is to analyze these submissions and, hopefully, make a decision as to where we will send the youngsters.
Please understand that I am really looking forward to hearing from each of you.
