2014 Trials

Postby RyanGSP » Tue Feb 03, 2015 10:25 pm

2014 was the first year I competed in field trials and it was the 1st year my young dog was old enough to give it a try.

We started in May with a few Horseback stakes, tried walking stakes, and finished the season in September with more Horseback stakes. We had a great deal of success placing in all stakes we entered which was a combination of Open Puppy and Open Derby wins.

Now that 2015 has come around awards for the 2014 season have started to be awarded. I am proud to say my puppy Hawk Haven Gambling Marshal Wy-Guy has been awarded
Calgary Pointing Dog Club Junior Dog of the Year
GSP Field Club of Alberta Puppy of the Year
GSP Field Club of Alberta Derby Dog of the Year
AFTCA Region 14 #2 Puppy (Single Course)
We are still waiting to hear on his standing in Open Puppy and Open Derby in the CKC.

Onward and upward, 2015 will find us competing in more Horseback trials. We need a First place in derby to get our last derby point and qualify us for Championships. Hopefully in the fall he is broke and can run some Shooting Dog stakes. I am going to need a horse this year as well, sure makes running dogs easier!

Yeah, but did you get out to hunt!? All kidding aside, what a year, congrats. I remember thinking that was a really nice breeding. Have you heard how any of the other pups are doing?

Best of luck in the future.

We got a fair bit of hunting done. He ripped himself wide open at the beginning of october and was out for about 3-4 weeks. We did a mentored hunt for a local pheasant festival, most of these guys and gals havent done much if any pheasant hunting let alone over a dog. They all enjoyed themselves. Note the duct tape on his right shoulder.

About a year ago one of his sisters ran in a few puppy trials but that was all I heard. I think the 2 Denise has ran their NAVHDA Natural Ability.

Way to go! You must be so proud of him, and of your accomplishments together. Next year will be even better if you get set up with a horse. Bravo.

YEP....if you've got a dog that can get you in the SATINs go for it...
You'll see the dog actually get even bigger running when you can train off a horse, (for field Trialing)

NOW, you gotta get control...turning...backing....breaking....directional control. DERBY to broke dog stakes is a substantial jump.

Best of Luck to ya.....
It's all fun when your WINNING....ain't it :D
