CLARA, WHELPED 06/25/2009, IS AN OFFSPRING OF INT CH/VC DANKAR'S HAUPT VON EBENBILDT MH, NA-I, UT-I BRED TO MY INT CH GROUSE POINT'S LUSCIOUS LEXY NA-II, UT-II. HER LITTER IS A NAVHDA NATURAL ABILITY BREEDER AWARD LITTER. SHE IS OWNED AND HUNTED BY BRIAN AND BRENDA WARD OF CHAMBERLAIN, SOUTH DAKOTA.
BRIAN GUIDES FULL TIME FROM SEPTEMBER THRU DECEMBER, CLARA, CAPTAIN, AND THE REST OF THIER DOGS GET TO SEE AN INCREDIBLE NUMBER OF BIRDS EACH YEAR. THIS IS WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HER.
- Earned a Prize I NA 106 points (Brian feels the reason she got a 106 is his error from not really knowing what he was doing and not preparing her for what the judges were looking for).
- OFA certified good hips and normal elbows.
- Clara is excelling on her 2nd hunting season as a professional guide dog. The season typically runs from Sept thru Jan...Hunting daily (and I do mean daily) on pheasant, grouse in SD. Along with quail and chukar.
- Extremely strong hunt, superior retrieving skills...quite frankly a "bird finding machine"! Will hunt all day if you let her.
- Loves the water.
- Training was enjoyable...quick learner and eager to work.
- Great house and family dog. Has the opportunity to be around many different people and dogs and is very social.
- During hunting season season she is up and ready to go before the sun and when the day is over you can find her snuggling up to Brenda on the couch.
I HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO HUNT BEHIND CLARA ON A COUPLE OF TRIPS TO SOUTH DAKOTA AND I AM HAPPY TO BE INCLUDING CLARA INTO OUR BREEDING PLANS.
