I forgot. Has anybody trained his pups, and how did they like them? The litter I am considering is a bitch out of Lean Mac. How does this mix sound to ya'll?

Auggie doesn't throw yellow, but his siblings Wham, Rita; Tiger do have the yellow gene.

Auggie's website: http://creekrobber.com/

no he doesnt throw yellow, but i have an auggie pup. he's 3 years old and i honestly could not ask for a better dog. it kind of worries me sometimes, but all he thinks about is retrieving. if you put things away he runs to the woods and brakes a branch off of a tree. if you hide that he'll roll a basketball to me. i know tiger throws some awesome pups Esprits out of the Woods, but i've seen some awesome dogs out of creek robber. from my experience they are super smart and have a lot of drive.

Anybody having cruciate problems with their Auggie pups? My Auggie pup had a TPLO at 11 months. She's a good marker, RJ at her first derby at Connell, WA at 14 months old. I think she could have a good all age career.

Mine also has noise issues but the pup's mother has thrown noise in another breeding and I don't think that it's from Auggie.

He is good at running trials but I don't think he has learned to type yet. :wink:

auggie pups

I had a pup that i gave away out of Auggie. I was very excited about the pup but she just didn't turn out to be that bright of a dog. I am not sure that this came from Auggie or the bitch.I didn't know as much about the bitch as i should have. She was a MH out of Washington. My pup also failed her eye CERF. I would just say do your research on the bithch. I good friend that i trust as a source for the inside scoop on these dogs has not been that impressed with the Auggie pups. But man is he incredible to watch.

the few of the ones I've worked with from our breeding were slow to mature, but once they came on, they were super.

Same thing happened to me. LOTS of go, marked well, really smart but slow to develop and also had noise issues. Didn't fit in our home, sold her to a guy, where she is the only dog and they really clicked. All three of us are happy now.

I have only good things to say about my Buffy (Freeridin Vampire Slayer)
(FC/AFC Creek Robber x FC/AFC Call Me Yankee Doodle Dandy)

- Great Marker
- Great Team Player
- Great Water Attitude

She marked well from the very beginning and has none of the problems others have mentioned. If Dave (Harter)were able to breed Dandy again, I would buy another puppy in a heartbeat.

Ted,
How is she in the house? The Auggie pups I've dealt with have the qualities you list but none of them reside with an amatuer.

I raised her as a puppy and have had her in the house on several occasions since.

Who was the bitch? I've had three litters of Auggie puppies and never had a puppy with bad eyes.

Auggie has had 22 of his progeny make the derby list this decade. That's 2nd to Maxx and tied with Chavez and Fargo. I think Auggie pups are doing just find and he'd at the top of my list as a sire.

Our Creek Robber girl,

Castlebay's Belle Starr*** [Robber X FC Castlebays Heir Borne]

has lived in the house since she was 7 weeks old. We could not
ask for a better pet. Then as soon as you start with the bumpers
or the birds, land or water, training or field trial she is all business.
She is alot of fun to train.

As far as we are concerned Robber throws some nice dogs.

when ya'll say noise issues. i know you mean whining at the line, but what exactly do you mean...to what extent?

Mine was actually very quiet on the line. was just noisy everywhere else, truck, kennel, crate. She also had some heat issues. She would get too excited. Her temp would actually spike up by 2-3 degrees before you ever got her out of the truck. She was also not happy in a pack situation. First dog I have ever had that hated being in a pack. Wanted all your attention all the time. That is why she is so happy where she is now being the only dog. Loved the way she worked, just couldn't stand the dog.

Mine has always been noisy. She'll bark at any little sound out of the ordinary around the house. She used to whine and carry on in the truck when the other dog was working. She'll try to whine and carry on in the holding blind.

She used to whine and scream on the line. I've managed to fix that but now she'll give a yelp as she leaves the line when told to retrieve a mark. After working on that for months she now will give a yelp on the 2nd jump after a send not the first. Ask people who were at the 4th series of the derby at the Samish trial in Connell, WA a month back. She screamed all the way across the pond to the flyer. Remember Harry?? (Our own RTFer Harry Williams judged it)

I've pretty much stopped worrying about training on marks and concepts and have been working on noise exclusively. I really wonder if I'll get it fixed. It goes away for a couple of days and comes back with something exciting. I've got the dog scared to go. Flaring the line to the mark and other side affects from working on the noise.

It'll either get fixed or the dog is gone.
