A combination of classic field and show lines,U-GRCH HRFish Dog's Playing in the Kona Surf MH combines the best in conformation and performance. Dual registered in both the AKC and UKC, Kona is the 7th labrador in the UKC to hold both a show GRCH and the Hunting Retriever title. Kona also holds the AKC Master Hunter title. He competed in the 2012 Master National and completed 4 series. He did not have his first handle until the 4th. In 2013 we will start his quest to become the 5th labrador to hold a UKC GRCH and HRCH.
Kona did not begin formal training in the hunt test venue until December of 2009 at the age of almost 2. He has en excellent nose and is an excellent marker. He is really coming into his own on blinds. He is a fun dog to train and has always picked up on new concepts rather quickly.
In addition to brains, drive and beauty, Kona has classic, lab temperament. He is fun loving, outgoing, and gentle.
He is PRA/EIC/CNM clear.
