Seven Shot's Trading Post



Welcome to


Decoy Ridge, Inc. is the parent corporation for Decoy Ridge Retrievers, D-R Graphics & Web Site Development and Seven Shot's Trade Blanket.  Decoy Ridge Retrievers was brought into the Decoy Ridge corporate fold when the addition of the second company, D-R Graphics & Web Site Development, prompted the founding of a parent corporation that would oversee the business affairs of both companies. Seven Shot's Trade Blanket is the third company to join the corporate group.  Decoy Ridge, Inc. is owned by Dave and Jan Welter.

Decoy Ridge Retrievers, established in early 1994, initially was originally inspected and licensed by the State of Missouri and offered Labrador, Chesapeake Bay and Golden Retrievers, Brittanys, German Shorthaired Pointers and English Setters.  The kennel then held the status of Hobby Breeder registered with the State of Missouri, and offered Labrador and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers exclusively on a very limited basis.  The kennel stopped maintaing a breeding program, officially closing, in December of 2009. Decoy Ridge Retrievers was managed by Dave and Jan Welter.

D-R Graphics & Web Site Development was established in early 2000. With the design and development of Internet web sites as the main objective, Desktop Publishing and digital photography are also offered. D-R Graphics & Web Site Development operates under the watchful eye of Jan Welter.

Seven Shots Trade Blanket joined the corporate group in late 2000.  With the growth of business the Trade Blanket has expanded to become Seven Shots Trading Post!  Dave has participated in Black Powder Rendezvous' for over thirty-five years.  Jan joins him when the Rendezvous' are close enough to home.  Usually she oversaw the kennel operation while Dave was "out being the Mountain Man!"  She now handles all corporate business, e-commerce and web site development/management. In 2011 Seven Shots Trading Post expanded once more to include Civil War reenactments and events. The Trading Post became Seven Shots Trading Post and Sutlery!  Please visit the Trading Post and Sutlery for all of your re-enactment needs!
