    i have two grady pups. both are bright, eager and athletic. both nice inside too! one is going to be a great hunting/hunt test dog.(see my add in rtf classifieds) the other should finish some derbies this fall and appears to maybe someday be an all age competitor.(no add posted....but you can call if interested)

    grady makes good pups.

    My dog and my feelings to a tee. I did not own the dam of my Grady pup but I hear she is SOME DOG too.
    I ended up having a baby and unfortunately had to end his hunt test career but I am confident he could have made Master hunter, and still might some day!

    My Grady x Zucker pup. He is handsome too boot.

    Fearless and high drive (edit to add I swim in this area, so I made sure it was SAFE SAFE SAFE for launch)


    He hunts

    And he tolerates the new baby pretty decent too! <3

    Instead of focusing on what’s missing, learn to appreciate what’s already there.

    I have a 2yr old Grady daughter. The trainability is what everyone else has said, very willing, eager to learn and not tough.
    As for house and living with-she is a nut. I love her zest for life and she makes me smile every day. She will settle and loves to lay on the couch but shes not for everyone. Constantly whirling with her toy and has a huge wiggle .... I love her and would have another one-but like I said, shes not real calm.....

    Yes for both questions at least with mine anyway. Mine has used his off/on switch since he was 7 weeks old when I brought him home. Sure, there were the typical puppy moments of unbridled energy the last couple hours of the evening but that is to be expected in my opinion. The little guy has loved the water since day 1, I think he has more fish in him then dog lol. Overall, would I buy him again and do it all over again, in a hearbeat and no question about it!

    I have seen some with fire in the belly and a few talented divas.
