About Ursa Velox Labrador Retrievers
Ursa Velox Labrador Retrievers is named for our older breeding female Ursa Velox, which in Latin means the "Fast Bear" and that's exactly what Ursa is. A granddaughter of Storm's Riptide Star -- the first Chocolate Labrador to earn the National Field Championship title (1996) -- Ursa is an excellent, versatile Chocolate Lab. At 54 pounds she's extremely athletic, strong, fast and was very easy to train. She picked up everything quite quickly and I personally trained her for forced retrieves at home in a matter of days. I've never run Ursa in hunt tests -- I just hunt her. Her natural ability, along with her pedigree via Storm's Riptide Star as a grandfather; Dreamcatcher's Nothin To it (MH) as a father (from Storm's RS) and strong Candlewoods influence through her mother Soggy Acres Dixie Bell speaks for itself. While a very sweet dog that lives with us inside -- in the field she has almost limitless stamina, has no quit, and can go all day. I'm originally from Pittsburgh and spend significant time in Pittsburgh/Western Pa. Ursa is a fantastic dove, duck, grouse, and pheasant dog. She quite commonly locks up on point over birds sitting tight, and has great marking and retrieving abilities.
