    I can speak just mine, she was very easy to train one of the best markers i have ever seen. She almost has toooo much energy for me. Just turned three and hoping she will chill out alittle.

    I have 2 Grady females and both are GREAT dogs. Easy to train and LOVE the water. They are a bit slow to mature IMO but with the way they mark and run blinds I can deal with a little immaturity.

    Love my Grady pup! We got our MH at 19mos and are running Derbies now.

    My dog is VERY willing and wants to do the right thing. A strong "NO" is usually all I need (with an occasional #3) and "GOOD BOYS" go a LONG way

    For those with Grady pups... are they easy to live with? Do they have an off switch?

    He is still young (2 in Nov) but settles down nicely in the house, quicker if I let him snuggle on the couch. He stays off leash at the line while training clients to run their dogs, and just hangs out (After he runs first) and is an attention whore. Just wants to be under your hand all the time...we are having a love affair. I have had alot of dogs in my life , and very special ones, but not ever had THIS connection.

    I bred my FEMA USAR/MH bitch to Grady ... the pups are now 22 months. I couldn't be more pleased with the litter and the comments from the owners. 2 of them are with a pro and on the Derby list - she loves them. 2 are with FEMA US&R handlers - one of these FEMA Certified at 18 months (we can't even test until 18 mos - and typical is 2 - 1/2 years on average - so this is quite an accomplishment, the other plans to test this fall/winter (he was a little slower to mature). 1 is a cadaver dog that was deployed to CO and is still working out there in the aftermath of the flooding. Comments from some of the owners are high-energy, fearless, focused, smart, loving, family-dogs that are working machines. I am slightly biased as I think the bitch had all these qualities as well, but do think that Grady threw something in there as well. Like the pups so much planning on a repeat breeding.

    I have a 22 month old female Grady pup that is a bottle rocket with a very very strong desire to retrieve any bird in any cover, in water, on land or in any other habitat. Marks very well and handles nicely. Now if I can get her line manners under control, we're in for a great ride.
