Lloyd, Sadie is up to 25 pounds at the last vet visit and is certainly as advertised. She is a very smart puppy, and we haven't found anything she can't do. Also, as you warned she is a bit hard headed with her alpha personality, but I like that about her as well as it seems to give her a ton of drive and she conforms pretty quickly. She is full of energy and I think she would chase that bumper in the pictures until my arm fell off from throwing it. She is certainly a loving puppy and fitting right in with our family & friends that come and go around here. We are certainly blessed to have her and thanks again for the opportunity to have one of your girls as part of our family. Spencer

Lloyd, just wanted to drop you a note and give you a late follow up on Tripp. He's really turned out to be a wonderful dog!He's sweet, loyal, and appropriately protective. He is big and has a massive head. Thank you for our great dog! I have looked at your website and your breeding program seems to be really beautiful! I'm a believer in your program for starting pup's, it makes a difference in how they turn out! Janet Brooks

Lloyd, we are two full weeks and a few days into our lifelong adventures with young DOS. So far he is about the most mild tempered, well behaved little pup I have ever seen, If he has any flaws, we haven't discovered them yet,unless you consider his love for his meals...This guy loves to eat but we are keeping him on a schedule and portions just below the high average recommendation from the Naturals food and our vet. Good news is the little kibble that I keep in my front pocket really has his attention during our short training workouts. So far Dos has basically been house and crate trained. He is very comfortable in his crate and he stays there throughout the night. We do typically get up once but that's something that I's glad to do and I'm really glad he has the mindset to let me know. He will go to the door during the day as well. Dos is retrieving in short spurts and sits almost every time. Though I think his natural instinct is to sit so that one has been pretty easy for us and he likes the reward and praise for doing what he would have done anyways...WE have also been working on a leash and heeling. Tomorrow is shot day and we are ready to get it done so we can get out and see the rest of the world. We are scheduled to go to a for retrievers seminar next week and though I have never worked with them they are close and come with good recommendations. Its really just an introduction class but I want to see their set up and get on the same page as soon as possible. Seems like they are a little more hands on and prefer me to be available for training sessions. Not sure how that will go in the long run but I'm willing to put in the work if it helps get us through the basics and build a bond in the field. Sorry for the long email Lloyd. I could go on and on about this little guy. he is truly a great pup and he has been a blessing to our family. Thank you! Caruth Family

Lloyd, Ellie is growing right on up. She weighs almost 20 lbs. already! I have a feeling she is going to be a big girl! All is well here. She is the smartest little pup! She is taking well to training. She is so eager to please. We have not taken her outside the yard yet. I still want to wait until all of her booster vaccinations are done before we do that. WE do walk her around the yard on leash just to get her used to it. It is already hard to imagine life before Ellie! She is such a sweet pup. Hope ya'll have a blessed week. Sincerely, Krystal

Well Piper went for her first overnight dog show in Syracuse, NY. She was fab. Got her 3rd leg in novice B Obedience for her CD title. Then she got two bumper legs. Third place each time. And she got a first place in Rally. I cain't tell what a great dog she is. She is a lot of dog. Has a mind of her own, but if I am fair, consistent, and generally a fun person to be around, she works really hard. She is such a quick study that we don't have to a lot of repetitions. She doesn't learn everything really quickly but once she knows it, it is embedded in her brain. And she is incredibly agile and funny and not to mention really gorgeous. She weighs 60.8 pounds of muscle. And if she wants to be, she is very affectionate but a bit on her terms. Thank you again for allowing me to have this magnificent friend. Best to you and Jessica

Hi!!! We absolutely love her!!! We did not hear a sound out of her all night.I set up a kennel inside a play pen in the kitchen and she went into her kennel and slept! She is so sweet and calm! She met Reagan, our daughter, last night and when Reagan came down the stairs this morning she went right to her and crawled up into her lap. I'm not sure which child of our's is more excited our son or my daughter. I am so impressed with how observant she is. I believe she will be a perfect fit for our family and will be a great hunting companion. I will keep you posted on her progress. Sincerely, Stephanie

Lloyd, the ride home was actually very easy. First few minutes DOS was a little confused, but he really settled down and slept or crawled on Sarah for the majority of the time. We made it south of Fredericksburg before we made a little potty stop. Dos was really intriged with the grass and he also circled a little tree several times in pursuit of himself I think...it was very funny. Night one went as good as I could have hoped. no accidents and he slept in his crate with the door open. We got up 3 times but I was happy to do it and he was very quick to relax back into my arms and then I would put him back on his bed in his crate. Today he actually went in the crate on his own and took a nap, so I think we are on point. I did put his towel in with him and I think it's helped him relax when he needs a little extra support. More to follow. ALL is good. We love this pup!

Lloyd, all went good. Our son loves the puppy and I think the feeling is mutual. She had a big day yesterday and slept both nights in a kennel in our bedroom. She woke me up once each night to go potty and slept like a log other than that. Our son went with the name Sadie and she even seems to know it already. It was a pleasure meeting you and Jessica as well and feel honored to have one of your puppy's.

Thank you! Our puppy is all grown up and an amazing young lady! She's calm and never needs a leash. Obey's every command. I'm glad you kept a pup. I'll keep you in mind if we decide to ever get another one. That pedigree breeds the perfect disposition for loving pets and members of the family.
