Thread: FC AFC B Bumble - Stinger - offspring

    Default FC AFC B Bumble - Stinger - offspring

    I am curious how Stinger's offspring are doing in the FT circuit? I have reviewed Retriever Results and he does have one FC he has sired but was just curious about other offspring that may be doing well in AA competition. Any names to look for? Or any feedback on his puppies?

    I've had the please sure of training 4 Stinger pups and owning 1 ,

    My experience has been that Stinger pups mature a bit slow , both the males and the females.
    Stinger pups are very good marking pups.
    Stinger pups have a very good water attitude.
    Stinger pups are very tractable.

    Bottom line , fun talented pups , don't rush them.

    We have 2 girls from Stinger and FC/AFC Charlie. One year old.
    Different, but like both of them. Enough to repeat the breeding.
    Seem smart, good drive and stable temperament. One is with Paul Sletten, the other with Charlie Moody.

    They have not been slow to mature.

    Fred is a good guy and very easy to work with.

    Had the pleasure of judging Buzz the weekend he made the derby list and became QAA. Lots of talent in that animal. Boy can he mark. He would have won both minor stakes if it weren't for Lardy running a flawless trial with Scrapper.

    Temperment = great personalties , fun dogs to be around , both in the field and at home. They are effectionate and enjoy being with people. My experience has been that Stinger pups handle really well , even at a young age.

    Slower to mature = Just because the pup reaches the ripe old age of 6 months and has their teeth does not mean they're mentally ready to beging the FF process , taking time on hold and other yard work can get you further than trying to grind them out.

    You can get a good feel on where they are even as 4 and 5 month old pups. I've had several pups who at 5 months old can work obedienace or yard work for a solid 10 minutes, they give you their full attention and soak up the entire session. A slower maturing pup may be challenged to focus more than say 5 minutes , their eyes start drift , they yawn , and for me that's alright, they have drive ,and they are showing talent in the field.

    In the field = slower maturing pup may take a bit longer to look out at the far gun , they may be a bit intemidated by the bigger concepts , say a rally big swim. It's not that the don't have desire to get the bird , or water attitude , they just need to grow into it.

    I have found that my slower maturing pups do really well when training is broken down or simplified. I would also add that some of my more talented dogs have been slower to mature as a puppy.

    Team,

    I bet Mrs, Kaiser is grateful for your definition of "slow to mature".

    If Mrs. Kaiser offers her definition, you would do well to be grateful too.

    I don't compete in field trials but my Stinger pup, Tess completed her MH title prior to age 3. I would agree with A Team's assessment of my girl. Tess is a great marking dog, doesn't cheat, always wants to please, and a "refuse to quit" retrieving desire. Wonderful dog!
