03.11.2007 Lahti group show and puppy show

Unbelievable day! Sulo was in his first show and was placed third in a puppy class. The judge was Tanya Ahlman-Stockmari. The judge for the flatcoats was Tapio Eerola. Jalo got the best result ever: he got Excellent and won the working class, he was second best male and got reserve-CAC! Just when we were thinking that we wouldn’t take Jalo to any more shows this kind of a happy surprise happens to us!

07.10.2007 Laukaa tendency trial

Blonde-man passed his tendency trial at a first try with a style and is now qualified in field! While being in his blood tracking part, first Luka checked the track that had been done to the previous dog and then he picked up his own track and retrieved a bunny… While we were waiting our turn before the trial, we noted that Luka hadn’t ever even retrieved a game from the water but in the test Luka did that like a professional!

General appearance: “An enthusiastic dog, that performs the water- and ground retrieves effortlessly. Performs well on the ground trail and shows the typical characteristics of a retriever in all tasks”. Luka’s evaluation

02.09.2007 Suonenjoki tendency trial
