HWVCGB Steadiness Day 

Lovely day catching up with Debbie & Dottie today on the HWHVGB steadiness day today! Really nice to have a chance to see their teamwork and lovely to see Debbies positive handling, every so grateful for the kind owners my puppies have gained. Thanks you to Tracie for organising the day and to our group charge […]

Sisters, beauty & brains! 

What a great day today with the N&S HPR FT Society field training! I took Faith along as her field work was neglected last year and we met up with Debbie and the lovely Dottie from our Charmed litter. Had a really great day training with the girls training under direction of James.  Dottie had […]

Rhea back at work! 

As Faith has her Discover Dogs event next weekend I decided it was safer to take Rhea on the shoot rather than risk Faith picking up an injury. Not doubt Faith wasn’t amused today being left behind as she really does love her days out beating more than anything else in the world but hey […]

Congratulations Debbie & Dottie (Astraios Power of Veratu) 

I just wanted to congratulate Debbie who owns Dottie (Astraios Power of Veratu) on a fantastic first season in the shooting field together. Debbie has achieved so much with Dottie and all with positive reinforcement, kindness and a relationship based on mutual respect. As a team they have gone from beginners to completing HPR’s, beating and even […]

Beaters Day 2017 

An entirely epic beaters day today!!! Can’t thank the shoot enough for what has been a brilliant season, one I will long remember!  Got to try picking up today and it was fantastic! Faith picked anything and everything with no issues, happily got stuck into thick cover or cleared lovely long distances from me for […]

Faiths last shoot of the season 

Fantastic end to the season for Faith, exceed my expectations this season given the little time I have had to work with her and I couldn’t be prouder of her. She worked really well, listening under really busy circumstances and at a distance without a problem. She been a happy, sociable girl whos enjoyed every […]

A days HPR & Cold game training 

Had a fantastic training day with the youngest, one of the best days I’ve ever been on! Lots of really good retrieves with some heavy pheasies over jumps and in pens etc. Hunted nicely onto birds, steady to flush right under her nose and solid to shot, also got some lovely feedback. Really pleased with […]

Training Cold Game 

Had a lovely evening out with Faith practicing on cold game. Hunted it down well, retrieved well but has started releasing it early, after all this time! Time to work on holds.

Faiths first shoot of 2016 

Having had a whole year out of the field to concentrate on competitive obedience, to say I was nervous about our first time out working on our local shoot this season would be an understatement. Faith did so well last year at such a tender age that I feared we could only look bad this year. Thank […]

Rheas first shoot 

Rhea recently completed her first shoot day on a real shoot as part of the beating team as opposed to working for a rough shooter. She was a really good girl and coped so well with the beat wagons, dogs, people, noise etc. She just took everything in her stride, really proud of our Australian […]
