Reba - MH at 27 Months, < 1 month professional training
We are proud to have bred our Reba to DC / International Champion / RU NWGDC Gamble's Benney the Jet MH VCX (Benney). Both Benney and Reba come from a proven line of titled bird dogs. Behind Benney are four generations of Dual Champions, with his sire and grandsire both Hall of Fame GSPs. Benney is a direct son of Hall of Fame DC/AFC / 3x NSTRA Ch. Gamble's Odyssey Fritz MH VCX, and a grandson of Hall of Fame DC / AFC / BISS Odyssey's Sam St. Max MH. Benney's dam is line-bred on DC Zeil Von Feinschmecker, which is a direct son of Hall of Fame FC / AFC / NAFC Beier's Evolution. Benney is OFA Excellent and throws very stylish, beautiful pups. Benny finished 2nd at the AKC National Walking Gundog Championship - competing against some of the best gundogs in the country. Benney has the On/Off switch and mental stability that allows him to be calm in the house, but a powerhouse in the field. Benny has it all! A true bird dog with beauty, brains, and a great temperament.
Reba comes from a long line of NSTRA champions, with many of her close relatives being ranked in NSTRA's national top 10. Reba was steady to wing-shot-and-fall at 10 months of age. She was able to point and hold sharptail grouse at 11 months of age, and acquired her Senior Hunter title at 18 months of age. She completed her Master Hunter title at 27 months of age with less than one month of professional training. Reba has a very strong desire to please - - but she is not soft. She learns quickly and takes only light correction until she figures out what you want her to do. She is a completely dependable, natural retriever from both land and water. She hunts at a medium range. While she will take a reasonably large cast, she always comes back around to locate me. She is truly a dog that hunts for you -- instead of you having to hunt for her. Reba is so easy to handle, I don't even use an electronic collar on her while wild bird hunting.
In the six generation pedigree of these pups, 21 spots are filled by Hall of Fame GSPs. You will be hard pressed to find a better pedigree for this breed. Major influences in these pups will come from:
HOF DC / AFC / 3x NSTRA Ch Gamble's Odyssey Fritz MH UT PrII, RD, VCX, ROMX (OFA Excellent)
HOF DC / AFC / BISS Odyssey's Sam Saint Max MH (OFA Excellent)
HOF DC Hillhaven's Hustler
HOF FC / AFC / NAFC Beier's Evolution
HOF DC / AFC Shillrest's Impressive
HOF FC Dixieland's Rusty
HOF FC / AFC Rusty's Blue Earth Rexx
Not only will these pups be great, natural bird dogs - but they will also make great companions for the home. These dogs should be calm in the house, even tempered, and a pleasure to have around you. These pups should be easily trained - and competitive at nearly any of the gun dog sports - Hunt Tests, AKC Field Trials, NSTRA, or NAVHDA.
Reba is line-bred out of Hall of Fame FC/AFC Rusty's Blue Earth Rexx - direct son of HOF Dixieland Rusty. The predominant mother-line of Reba's line-breeding comes from NSTRA Ch. Nandell Ka-Zoya Von Monarch - which all goes back to strong Greif breeding. In Reba's very first NSTRA trial run, she found four (4) birds, made four (4) retrieves, and got a back. If you look at TGR Gundog Kennels (where Reba comes from), you can see that her lineage has produced multiple NSTRA champions, with several of her close kin being ranked nationally in NSTRA's Top 10. This gene-pool has a solid tradition of producing winning, easy-to-handle bird dogs.
Bottom line - this should be a great litter of natural bird-dog puppies with great temperaments, good conformation, and all built on a legacy of high performing, biddable dogs.
