Teddy is 1 of only 4 dogs on earth that is a 4-time Grand Master
Teddy is truly a once in two lifetime's dog. He is the man. He is an absolute sweetheart to everyone and an absolute nightmare for birds! Teddy weighs 63-65 lbs and has a big, blocky head and a big chest. He's a phenomenal marker, the best I have ever trained and that is saying something. Ted has a great demeanor; very relaxed, yet very curious, just independent enough, yet very friendly. He loves to sit in the recliner with me, and he loves our daughters and anyone who will scratch or rub his belly. He is a favorite at the Vet clinic! Yet when you take him in the field to hunt or get to the line for a hunt test or training he is all business. Teddy has also turned into an absolute beast of a wild bird hunter. Steady as a rock in the duck blind, and a bird finding, pointing and retrieving machine in the upland field. When Teddy was younger he spent time training and competing with Carolyn at Blazing Red Kennels including earning his HRC Grand Title. Carolyn absolutely loves Teddy and keeps offering to "take him off my hands." Teddy's hunt test career boasts a pass rate of >80% including the HRC Grand with Teddy competing and earning titles with the APLA, HRC and AKC. Teddy's hunt test accomplishments include going 9/13 in the APLA to earn his CPR, MPR, GMPR and up to his 4xGMPR titles. He passed 6/9 in AKC Master Hunter tests for his Master Hunter (MH) title. In the HRC Teddy earned his SHR, HR, HRCH, GRHRCH and is in the honorable 500 point club. I believe he has now passed 39/45 (I think; sometimes I lose count) finished tests. Teddy passed the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 HRC International Grand Hunt Tests to earn his Grand Hunting Retriever Champion (GRHRCH) title. The Grand is the toughest hunt test on earth to pass with an average of about 20-25% of dogs (must be a HRCH to enter) passing each time. Teddy now has 715 HRC championship points. Our remaining hunt test goals for Teddy are to earn 1,000 HRC Points and to get his certified therapy dog license. As good as his retriever skills are Teddy also really excels is in the upland field. Man does this dog point! Teddy has been pointing birds in the upland since we picked him up at 11 weeks of age (see the links to videos below) and he is really producing natural point in his pups! Teddy is 3/4 American Field lines (goes back to Lean Mac and Creekside's Hey Paco) and 1/4 English field lines. His sire, Flame, is one of the most highly titled pointing labs on the planet (QAA, MH, MNH, UH, GMPR, GRHRCH (5). Teddy's dam, Sugar, is no slouch either. The product of two GRHRCH dogs, Sugar has her HRCH and UH titles with the HRC. Teddy certainly brings some new blood into the pointing lab world and we are very excited about his future. Watch for Teddy at a hunt test near you soon. Teddy has perfect health clearances, good looks, an amazing "on-off switch", a great personality. He really is the complete package!
Teddy is now standing at stud to approved females. Puppies from Teddy's first few litters are now coming of age (oldest pups are not even 3 yet) and turning out amazing. Many are now starting to compete in hunt tests with lots of success. His pups are very talented with great natural point, strong retriever skills, good looks, and awesome personalities. Contact us for breeding information on Teddy if you are looking to improve looks, on-off switch, marking ability, natural point, athleticism, and overall personality in your lines.
