Qualifying for a national is hard work and takes a talented dog, trainer, and handler. We are very proud of these dogs and their accomplishments. They are the best of the best!

In addition to qualifying Ivy and Dottie for both nationals, Andy Kahn has had an amazing year! Andy and Dottie won a doubleheader this year. Ivy finished up the year as High Point All-Age dog, High Point Amateur dog, and was a 2016 NRC Finalist! In addition, Dottie finished the year as California's High Point Amateur dog. Both girls are outstanding dogs and we are proud to have had the opportunity to train and shape them through the years.

Another big congratulations goes to Ben Echevarria and his young dog Ford. Ford finished 2nd on the High Point Derby Dog list. We are looking forward to seeing his accomplishments in 2017!

Our truck as a whole enjoyed many great accomplishments this past year. Please visit our Field Trial Results page for more information!

FIELD TRIAL TRAINING

We like our dogs to run hard, try hard, and not be afraid to make mistakes. That comes when things are in clear pictures for the dogs. They should always know what is expected of them. We don't train through failure and pressure, but with repetition, success, and attrition.
