    Default CH FC or both?

    HAHAHA I can just hear everybody saying field vs show, oh not again. Just thought I'd do a video of Jet. Pretty good little dog actually. He's about 8 months old and I have had him for two months. I like him. He likes to work and goes hard, comes back slow but goes out hard. Sometimes a little stubborn as you will hear when he come back with the first bird. I told him to sit so I could move the camera for the next mark and he would not leave the first bird alone that was laying in the ground. He also is having a little trouble holding on to the duck being froze solid. I took them out of the freezer but it has been chilly here and didn't thaw as I had expected. Anyway watch little Jet and tell me what you think. I would like to know what the show people think of his looks.

    I bet he comes from working show lines. Reminds me a lot of my CH/MH sired one at that age.

    Chunky little guy. Must be CH stock but he did a nice job. Thanks for sharing.

    No he's a client dog and definitely show bred but I have no Idea what his pedigree is. He came from Minnesota is all I know.

    Since he is 8 months and Steve said he has had him for 2 months I doubt he is actually overweight. It would take no time to take a few lbs off a growing pup even if he had arrived a bit heavy.
    We have a FC/AFC sired and a CH/MH sired that are exactly 9 months apart in age. From about the time the younger turned about 12 months they have always been within at the most 4 lbs of each other but the CH/MH sired looks he has 15 lbs on the FC/AFC sired one. Only a half inch height difference.

    When I was training professionally, the vast majority of dogs that came in for training, regardless of breed or pedigree, were overweight when they arrived.
