Kate places 2nd at the Maine trial. This was Kate's first open stake field trial, we call it her big girl trial. She and Todd did a fantastic job during the whole trial. We are very excited for Kate and her family and we are looking forward to continue working with Kate. She is a lovely girl. Thank you Bob for trusting us with your girl.
I found this perfect spot in NY for her photo, she just got done swimming so she had a short time to dry off.
Congratulations to Patrick and Griffin on two 3rd place ribbons at the Iowa Sporting Spaniel Club held on Saturday April 27th & 28th. This was Griffins first Puppy Stake and Patrick said Griffin is showing flashes of great things to come. Keep up the great work Pat!
Griffin is out of our National High Point dog Craney Hill Dalmore Dudley and Drakehill's Anna. Dudley has now sired 6 litters and we are looking forward to the continued success of his puppies!
DJ has had plenty of practice running in the field trial puppy stakes, but this trial was going to be special. His owner, Rich, was going to run DJ for the first time in the puppy stake and this was Rich's first field trial. There were a lot of smiles and the nerves were on edge for Rich (not according to Rich!).
The event was a successful practice run for both Rich and DJ. Soon after the placements and celebration of the win, DJ was on his way home to Boston for the first time...a country dog going to the big city! We hope you enjoy your time together and we will see DJ later in the summer for further training.
Here are a few photos of DJ with his new Mom Sarah and big sister Indie. As you can see, DJ is already fitting in very well in his new surroundings. We look forward to more photos of DJ in the big city.
Gigi took our training seminar in TX and had such a fun time learning so many new training concepts, and Todd thought what fun it would be to have Gigi run DJ in the puppy stake. This would be the first time Gigi ran a puppy stake and with DJ. Todd had Gigi run many of our field trial dogs during a training session to get a feel of how each one of the dogs runs. Not many Pros would hand off their field trial dogs to just anyone. We hope you had fun Gigi and keep at the dog training and hopefully run one of your own dogs in the field trials soon. Enjoy a few photos and a short video.
