2015 training gun dog setter holly points breathtaking 518p

For a serious bird hunter with little time or inclination for dog training, then Poinsettia (Holly) is an ideal dog. In the field, Holly handles easily and points staunchly and yet shows the style of her field champion sire. Too, she knows all important field commands. She is only one year old but has already found more birds than most hunting dogs will encounter in several seasons.

When she’s not in the field, Holly has a gentle, calm and affectionate disposition.

Finally, the word that best describes Holly is easy—easy to hunt, easy to live with and easy to look at. All that’s left is to take her hunting.

Holly is a Started Dog.

Annie has made a home here. She’s a fabulous addition to our lives. Last week, she was awesome. She retrieved a bird I thought was lost in cattails for sure. Amazing nose. Thanks again for your grace, kindness and friendship. Quotes End

Pointers, CH Elhew G Force x Northwoods Vixen and Dashaway x Goodgoing Moxie

Roy impressed me a ton this weekend. He was finding birds in front of me, to the side and even in places I did not expect him to be. Also, I have yet to see him mishandle a bird he finds. His points are very staunch and he never crowds. Roy even retrieved a bird to hand. That is not to say he wanted to release the bird, but it was fun to see him saunter down the trail (past Barry) with a grouse in his mouth and walk right to me. Quotes End
