Welcome to Greystone Gun Dogs


Thank you for stopping by to visit our website. As a young girl, raised in the small town of Brewton, Alabama, I spent the majority of my childhood hunting, fishing, riding horseback and exploring the outdoors on the family farm. The older I became, the more my passion for hunting grew as it was a common interest that I could enjoy while in the company of my father. From deer hunting to turkey, duck, dove and quail.......we did it all.

Then about three years ago, I purchased my first upland hunting dog, a female Weimaraner that I named Grey. I had no idea at the time how this turn of events would open my eyes to a whole new world of hunting. Through the course of Greys training, I was introduced to the world of competitive field trialing and I was immediately taken by the sport and the concept of me and my dog competing together as a team against similar teams in this fast paced action packed sport. I am the proud owner of Greystone Gundogs, located in Troy, Alabama. I am equally proud to be a member of United Field Trialers Association (UFTA). To hone my skills in the offseason, I also compete in sporting clay tournaments with National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA).

I look forward to an exciting year of tournaments and trials culminating with the UFTA National Championships where my dogs and I will compete against some of the top bird dogs and bird dog trainers / handlers in the country.

Stop by from time to time to check out whats new on our site. We will routinely update the site with our trial results, pictures, dog records and relevant announcements on our activities as we travel the Southeast trialing and making new friends in the field trialing community.


Thanks for stopping by,


Melanie Padgett
