COMMENTS:

Good afternoon Jeff! I have been meaning to touch base with you to update you on Tank. His parents are Bo and Storm.  He has the loving and loyal disposition of his Mom Storm and the magnificent strong stature of his Dad Bo!  He is wild about any bird that flies but in the field is extremely well disciplined and focused. We get many compliments about how well trained and behaved he is.  We could not imagine our life without him.  Where we go, he goes.

He is an amazing swimmer!! We take him fishing and he will swim beside the boat as we troll along. He will venture onto the tube and allow us to pull him even! We have not found anything he won't try.  He will even play hide and seek!  He is also ball crazy!! Wilson balls are indestructible!

We take him Grouse hunting in the fall and he shows off his athletic ability.  I think you would be very proud of him!!  We would love to come visit sometime soon!!  We will let you know if we can fit it into our schedule!

Sincerely,

Miles and Jenn and Tank

 Congratulations Miles and Jenn on your exceptional development of TANK!  What an incredible young dog he is already proving to be! How we love to see the natural ability of our pups being developed and encouraged so early!  Well done! Wishing you continued success and all the best!

Hey Jeff, I was wondering if you were planning on any litters in the future. I have a pup from you already and he has surpassed my expectations, both as a house companion and a hunting companion. His name is Hank and I believe he's from Bo and Storm from last May. So if you have anything planned I'm interested. Thanks Jeff

 Hi Jeff.
Here is a pic of Slyder. There is a story behind the name. He is already pointing here and there at 16 weeks. A very smart and handsome boy and he seems to know it too. I have not had the chance for putting him on birds but Edie from NAHVDA said there are grouse where she is and would be happy to have me come up to put him on them. He is also very affectionate and close and stays within 40 ft every time we are at the offleash park at Southland here in Calgary.

Looking forward to strengthening his basic training and moving on to hunt training.

Regards,

Erik Schilbach

Hey Jeff,

As I promised here are some pointing photos!!!

I have got to tell you, this dog is AMAZING! As you know I have had 4 GSP and over the years I also been involved in the training and hunting with many other Shorthairs as well as Brittany's, English pointers, Setters and several flushing dogs including Boomer another Champion Sporting dog. I am by no means a professional and defiantly do not profess to be however, Rex is hands down the fastest learner I have ever seen when it comes to bird training. It is mind blowing to me that this dog is just over 3 months old and he is pointing at this level! Most puppies and puppy owners are happy when they can go a day without something being chewed or destroyed...this little guy is pointing live birds at 3 and a half month old!!!!! He is using his nose very well and lets it guide him, he is whoaing and holding point, has amazing form when on point and is super "birdy" already! It is becoming very clear that he has some amazing blood lines! I would love to hear how his siblings do in the future as I think the parents were clearly a dynamite pair and have produced some amazing pups! Congrats to you and your brother on matching up Bo and Katie...what a pair! I would 100% recommend your dogs to friends and family and am happy I went with your kennel after speaking to over a half dozen others. After seeing what Boomer had become I was confident that your kennel was producing high quality, healthy, family orientated gun dogs that are very calm and easy to work with. Rex has quickly become part of the family and is referred to such, yes he is our family dog but he is also my young sons brother and considered our son. He is wonderful most of the time and when he does have typical puppy mistakes the positive things he does quickly makes us forget the negatives. Glad our paths crossed...when we took on a new pup I had low expectations that I could ever have a pointer as amazing as my last dog, Rex is defiantly working on proving me wrong! Things are great and I am loving the puppy years. We couldn't be more pleased!

Take care!

Favorite Pursuits: Running, playing, exploration, training, birds, snuggling.

 Hi Jeff

How are you?  
We figured it was high time we send you some photos of Archer.  These were taken at 10 weeks.  Steph is going to be taking more soon.
Archer is a phenomenal dog. We were able to get him pointing wings at 11 weeks. His training is going so well. He will come on command, sit, stay for an extended amount of time, give, shake a paw, and heel to my side when I'm not moving. He's house and crate trained. He's well socialized with kids and other dogs. I started introducing him to guns and deer. He is great with both.
His favourite activities are training with the wings, running in the field, exploring the woods with us and snuggling. We wanted a laid back version of the GSP and couldn't be happier with his temperament. His focus is extraordinary and we contribute this to your brilliant breeding. We know he is gonna be a champion and look forward to bird hunting with him!
Thank you so much for everything you've done in matching us up with the best dog. We look forward to years of enjoyment and will pass on your name to anyone looking for the champions of hunting dogs.

COMMENTS:

Jeff,
We have been meaning to email you for months.  Argus has been a wonderful addition to our family!  Although today when he took off the first decoration from the Xmas tree he and I did have words!  This is a photo from this summer in Nova Scotia at our cottage, needless to say he loved the water – chasing frogs all summer.  He was even jumping off the end of the dock by the last week of being at the lake. 
We found a wonderful trainer in NS and have spent many hours with him.  He loves to go for his 2 daily runs out to Peace Hills Park, he especially loves meeting and greeting the other dogs who are also running off lease. 
I will send a couple of more photos with just the subject line and not note.  We would LOVE to hear how the other pups are making out from the litter and would welcome a chance of a get together in the spring?
 
If you EVER need a recommendation for pups and kids (I have 6 pre school age in our home) we would be happy to do so.
Best of the Christmas season to you and your family,
 
Bev & Paul Sweet

 

CONGRATULATIONS Paul and Bev on your wonderful CHAMPION "ANGUS"!  It's easy to see you have poured a ton of time and effort into his development!  Wishing you abundant continued success!

Hi Jeff….I hope all is well with you and your family. I wanted to share with you some pictures of Boomer in his second season in the field. He has proved himself in our home and in the hunting grounds. Awesome dog, we had a chance to introduce Boomer to two different types of Grouse this year…Ruffies and sharpies. He really liked that lol. I have heard that a good friend of mine is getting a GSP puppy from you as well. That is great news…looking forward to hunting behind it. Keep up the great work.

 Congratulations Darcy and Palmer Family on your exceptional development of Boomer!  What an incredible dog he has become, both in the home and field!

Hey Jeff,

We thought it would be time to share what Tia has been up to these days. She is from the 2012 June litter from Gauge and Shooter. She has been a ball of excitement ever since we brought her home to Hinton. She is growing into an amazing, intelligent dog. Many of the tricks we have taught her she has learned in a day or less. The best trick we have taught yet is to retrieve a beer from the fridge when asked. Tia loves to run, play, and be on the go which fits into our active lifestyle. The spring season and is coming and we are excited to see Tia swim. Hunting this Fall is a must and we are excited about our up and coming adventures.

Jeffrey and Melanie

 Congratulations

Fabulous job on your training as we can see Tia is

Hi Jeff,
I thought it was about time we sent some pictures of Maggie! She has been a part of our lives for 5 months now and has been very busy. She has unending energy and unending amounts of fun! Maggie starts every morning with a walk at 5am snow or shine. She was the one puppy who volunteered to come live in

 

 

Saskatchewan and since she moved here, we have had snow for all but two weeks. Maggie absolutley loves the snow. She would spend all day playing outside if she could. She loves chasing snowballs and digging tunnels in the deep snow.

Maggie loves to run. And we can see where the name springer comes from...it's like there are springs built into her feet...Maggie loves to jump through the snow. She also likes a good game of fetch and loves to play with her friends. She has learned all of the basics and is excited to get hunting with her dad.
I have sent a few recent pictures of her at her favorite place...the fishing pond. I have also included a couple from the first week we brought her home. One was from a day in the field with her dad and one from her first (and last) music lesson with her mom! I guess she's more of a hunting dog than a musical one.
Thank you for all of your help last summer. We are glad Maggie has come to join our family. Even Smokey the cat likes her!
Kristin Morris and Gareth Boyle

 

Congratulations Kristin and Gareth on your wonderful champion 'Maggie'! What a beauty! and we know she will continue to grow and develop into a wonderful friend and field companion!

Jeff, Long time! Just wanted to give you an update on how Cali is doing. She is 8 months old now and definitely growing up into a great pup. Still a little high strung at times – especially when she doesn’t get her exercise – but most of the time a very good dog.  I managed to take her out Pheasant hunting with me in October 2012. I made sure I took a few shots with the shotgun from a distance to get her used to the sound. Then slowly came closer and closer…. As luck have it be, me, my brother, and my cousin all limited out on Pheasants that day so “Cali” was able to associate the gun shots with some excitement of fetching a bird! Of course, trying to get the bird back from a dog with no hunting training proved to be tricky! Haha. We also had her out at Lake Okanogan over the summer and although she was only 3 months old, she started playing around in the water. I look forward to this summer to see if she starts taking bigger steps and gains some comfort with swimming in the water.

 

 

Congratulations Luke on your beautiful champion 'Cali'! We know she will continue to grow and develop into a wonderful friend and incredible huntress!

Hi Jeff,
I hope all is well. I was peeking around on your site and wanted to send you some pictures of Buckley (Shooter/Gauge June 12/12 litter). Buckley is doing great. He is fitting in perfect in our home and is developing/growing so fast. We have spent some time in the field, but nothing serious yet. His instincts are incredible. The first picture is a trip to a local spray park, the second is with our older Dachshund Harley. Harley is having a hard time keeping up with Buckley, but they enjoy each other's company regardless.

We are very thankful for your help in adding to our family, It couldn't of been a better experience.

COMMENTS: 

Thomas is doing well he is developing quite the personality lol. He is full of spunk and energy.
We go for walks about once a day and we are trying to teach him to heal and sit and wait till we say ok when we need to cross the road. He loves to run around in the back yard and cuddle on the couch. He is having troubles with crate training and house training but to be expected as he is so young.

He seems to like the oatmeal and cinnamon shampoo and leave in spray conditioner we got him as well.
He is booked in puppy kindergarten and a manners class staring in Sept running till the end of November. These are classes that our vet recommended as the instructor is great, well educated and professionally recognized. These classes will also help us socialize Thomas more with other people and dogs.

Thank you again!
