I have been reading the forums here for a few weeks. Great stuff hides in these threads. I have never owned a hunting dog until a few months ago when I picked up a small female from a lady I work with. The dog "Derby" is from Sunnyview's Zee's Dream and Hightest Sporting Tradition (Orvis) from Hightest retrievers here in Northern CA. I think I got lucky but I plan having the dog trained mainly by professionals at Hightest retrievers www.hightest.com. She is my first dog so I am not really sure what I am doing. I do read this forum for about an hour each night trying to learn the lingo and figure out what to do. So far, I have been impressed at what the dog can actually do. Like I said though, I think I got lucky. I only paid $500 for the pup and she has 44xFC, 5xMH and 1xSH in her pedigree through 5 generations. There is a short clip of her on the hightest page under the testimonials section. I plan on trying to obtain a MH for Derby then working for a FC if I can, depends on the dog I guess. She is only 4.5 months old right now but has been retrieving in water since she was 13 weeks and will spend over a minute tracking her bumper in tall grass.

I probably won't say much as I am new. If anyone lives near Oroville, CA....send me a PM if you want help or wanna work dogs together.

Welcome

Welcome to the forum, most of the time you can keep your feet down. But from time to time, you might need to pick them up (or put on some rubber boots)...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

welcome newbie. "A dog" doesn't tell us about your dog. What color?
Lol, She is a Black Labrador. Should be on the smaller end of the size charts when fully grown. Here is a picture of her....
