About Us

Welcome to Bird Dog of the Day!  We're so glad you're here and would love to tell you a little about ourselves before you shop and pop around.

We originally started the @birddogoftheday Instagram account in 2013 with the goal of featuring one bird dog per day.  Since then, we've featured nearly 2,500 bird dogs and had over 795,000 images and videos submitted to us with the hashtag #birddogoftheday!  It's been an absolute joy connecting with our bird dog community and with the launch of this website we are thrilled to take this thing to the next level!

Bird Dog of the Day is run by two bird dog enthusiasts and entrepreneurs in Seth Patterson and Hyatt Voy.  Seth runs marketing & branding (including the IG account) and Hyatt runs product development and operations.  Seth is based in rural NW Oregon and Hyatt is just outside of Bozeman, Montana.  Hyatt grew up running pointers and labs with his dad, chasing huns, roosters and pheasants in the grasslands of central and eastern Montana.  Seth grew up with labs, hunting Oregon waterfowl primarily (but loves upland and "combo hunts" too), lost his 12 year old legendary chocolate lab Milo last year and currently has a 6 month old black lab male named Trapper (you'll see him on the gram!).

Bird Dog of the Day is the premier source for bird dog inspiration and has the most dedicated bird dog community on the internet.  Our goal is to leverage our attention for good: elevate bird dog stories, expose the specialties of each breed, and put hunting in a good light for public perception.  We believe bird dogs are a gateway into bird hunting and hunting leads to conservation.  With this in mind, we’re keen on inspiring hunter recruitment so as to increase conservation efforts.  Sometimes, all it takes is one simple photo of a bird dog to spark folks' interest in hunting.  And if you're really into bird dogs, we've got some incredible, unique gifts for bird dog owners and fans alike that will outshine what you'll find elsewhere.  We hope you check out our shop of USA-made goods.

We really appreciate your support. Thank you for stopping by and give your pup a scratch behind the ear for us.
