Chief was awarded Open Gun Dog of Illinois at the Field Trial Clubs of Illinois on July 19th.
Best of Winners, Hanover
Chief is being trained for the fall gun dog classes. He has
his two derby championship points.
This is a male that I kept out of a Toni x Ricki breeding.
We are at our first field trial in puppy. He points a bird in the tree! He is 9 months here.
He is our next dog for the field.
