UPDATE 5/28/11: Nikki is getting big and is clearly pregnant. She is due in mid-June. Puppies are available.
Austin is a litter-mate to our female Abbey. Austin has done very well in the NAVHDA system with a 112 Prize I in the Natural Ability test and two Prize I Utility test scores. He also ran in the NAVHDA Invitational and did well, but didn't pass. Here is what his owners and trainers have to say about him:
"Austin is one of the most stable dogs that we have had the pleasure to train and hunt behind. A stable dog is a dog that can be put in any situation and not have an adverse reaction. Austin is a dog that will lay quietly in his run when the other dogs are being trained, not jumping around, biting at the fence and making a lot of noise. When you teach him something, you rarely have to re-teach. When we were preparing him for the NAVHDA natural ability test he would point and catch five birds and go point five more. It didn’t matter how many birds he caught, he always came right back and pointed. His performance in the NAVHDA Utility Test was great, he earned a Utility Prize I two tests in a row the last prize one was a 204! Austin’s hips are certified from PennHIP, left is .46 and right is .42"
Nikki is out of our N litter that was sired by Jeiko v Jakobsbrunnen. She is a full time house dog and has become one of our best hunting dogs. She shows tremendous desire and tenacity in the field and was hunted last season in Iowa, South Dakota, and Arkansas on pheasants and ducks.
