Have been training pointers for 15 years for both hunting and field trial use. Co founder of the new Vancouver Island Pointing Dog Club, President for three years. Now starting to raise pointers from acquired stock. Not offering training or boarding at this time. This is a home based business and I intend to keep it small and only turn out a quality product. There is enough average dogs out there that I don't need to try and be part of that market.
I encourage my pointers to be versatile dogs. They love to swim and are used for waterfowl as well as upland. My dogs are hunted heavily from Sept 1 to March 10th. Heavily to me is three to seven days a week. I field trial during the off season from April to June and then the dogs get a rest for the summer while I am trout and salmon fishing. Not a bad life, eh!
The male pup from Crushes first litter, Fastforwards Dappled Dan is available for stud. Dan has muliple field trial placements in open puppy and a first place in open derby (as an eleven month old). Dan was hunted heavily in his first season and has had grouse, quail, pheasant, ducks, and geese shot over him. He is steady to flush and usually steady to kill. Points with a high head and tail. He has a very sweet easy going personality. You would think he is just a loveable mush until you saw him hunt. He has a good nose and is a focused retriever. He currently will retrieve all of the above except geese and this will change in the future. He swims well, and retrieves from water. Dan is a medium range dog until he gets out onto the prarires where he can stretch out.
