Grady has has stood stud so many times, we should just cut to the chase and rename the breed "Grady Retriever." Honestly $1000.00 MORE for a Grady pup. Rediculous!!!
More likely it's because pup prices usually reflect the stud fee Grady's fee is pretty steep ~$1000 more than most other FC etc. but he's hot right now and has shown that he can produce, and people line up to pay the price for a pup.

I bred my yellow firebreather to Grade and kept one of the pups for myself, (both are in my avatar). What I got was the drive and intelligence of both ma and pa but the control that everyone wants in their dog. The pups are just a year old now and two are running derbys and there could be a third by this spring. I am almost as excited to see how the other two do as I am my own. Both my dogs make me look good, I couldn't be happier with my Grady pup.

I own an 11 month female out of Grady, and she is a ton of fun, dynamite on the line a sweetheart at home.
I had been around my pups mother and I had worked with my pups mothers father, both excellent dogs out of Rebel with cause. so when the decision was made to breed to Grady I had to have one of the pups. When I was researching the Grady line it was pretty standard to read "team player" , eager to please, good marker". I have found all of this to be true, ten fold.
Not taking anything away from from Emmet, I haven't been around an Emmet pup , yet. But in my opinion you cant go wrong with Grady.
