Mike Wilshire got his first Brittany in 1978 and had great success with him. He was a CKC Amateur and Open Field Champion by 3 years of age as well as Show Champion. As Mike continued to acquire more Brittanys, have success with them, and set up a successful breeding program, he became a CKC and AKC approved field judge,CKC Western Ontario Pointing Breed representative, marshalled Ruffed Grouse Society trials, US National Gun Dog Championship, travelled to Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Arkansas. Wherever there were bird dog activities, he was there! People started asking for his help, and thus began the professional bird dog training. He had many successes and put Field Test titles from FDJ through FDX as well as Cdn and US field trial wins and placements. He has bred US Field Champions as well as the #1 Juvenile Brittany in the US. He has been televised on Angler and Hunter TV, Wild TV, on radio and written up in Outdoor Canada, Ontario Out of Doors magazines and celebrity guests have visited the Game Farm.

For over 20 years he lived on an 85 acre farm in Belwood, Ontario, but moved further south to 150 acres in Cayuga, Ontario in 2010 and set up Ruffwood Game Farm. Now after 40 years, Mike is retiring from training EXCEPT some previous clients and our own Ruffwood Brittany puppies.The Game Farm remains open from September through til the end of April, as well as a venue for club events and seminars in spring/summer months.
