    Default FC Finn

    I'm possibly considering breeding my 2 year old yellow female that just received her HRCH to FC Finn!! I'm wondering what anybodys thoughts are on this and his quality of pups he throws? Please let me know his pros and cons?

    That link doesn't work. Try this one: http://blackwaterslastresort.weebly.com .

    We had a litter late last fall by Finn. It is too early to get a lot of feed back on their training, but reports from the families have been positive.

    This is a picture of one of the pups at about 3 months old in the duck blind. He accompanied his owner hunting right away and began learning what it was all about.



    He even made a retrieve when a bird fell really close to the blind.

    My father has a Finn x MH pup that I have been training. Very, very good marking dog. Quiet and calm at the line. I don't know if he even knows how to bark. Very steady at a young age without really asking him to be. Really wants to please you and do what is asked, but is a little soft and really requires alot of teaching. Once he understands what you are asking of him he will do his best to do it. Nice enough dog that I plan to breed to him in the future to my Cosmo female that is very very hot.

    We also have a male who is getting ready to run Masters. He is much like Chris describes above. When he is just hangin out with you he is just a big goofy dog, loves to sit by my side and get petted. He looks like he would be a couch potato and in fact loves that position in the house. But throw anything and he turns on the after burners there and back! At our club's annual picnic this year he won the Super Singles contest against several very fast dogs. We recently had a club training day and had lots of MH and QAA dogs there and he made a very respectable showing on the triple that gave a lot of the dogs trouble.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE my Finn litter. Ended up driving to SD for the breeding. Was the best trip I ever took. All pups were spoken for before breeding happened. I needed 4 girls and a boy. For field, obedience & agility homes. Got exactly what I asked for.

    Girl I kept broke her shoulder at 3 1/2 months. Creat and leash for almost 5 months. She is in full training mode field and obedience. She learns quick. Has a stubborn streak in her. Thanks MUM! But gets through her little episodes quick.


    Responses from the whole litter. They are bold, easy to train and have loads of drive in every thing they do.

    Call Bob or Steve, they are great people and will give you very honest answers to your questions.

    if I were in the market for another pup I would look for a Finn littler first.

    Not sure what you want to be told other than what has already been said.
