HD: CL: FRI PRA: FRI Stamtavle Kevin Stamtavle hos Willie Walker
Vi på Kennel Alstedlund har vært så heldig å få kjøpe sæd hjem fra en fantastisk hund i USA, FTCH Cold Creek Kevinator (Kevin). Kevin har utover en helt fantastisk stamtavle, en meget unik serie av meritter fra jaktprøver, da han har vunnet prøver på alle de tre hovedkategorier av prøver “over there”. Han har således vunnet både “Horseback Trials”, “Walking Field Trials” og “Shooting Dog Trials”, noe som er meget sjeldent sett. Den diversitet har vi avlet etter hele tiden og Kevins blod forsterker linjen av hunder som jakter alt fra høyfjell til lavland og tett skog.
Kevin er en vakker, veldig sterk og ca. 25 kg tung tricolor setter. Han er en super sterk jakthund med et meget veldekkende søk, en viltfinner av rang og han er fullstendig “steady” på fugl. Han tar vakre høyreiste stander hvor han bærer den typisk Amerikanske “12 o’clock tail”.
Kevin eies og har vært ført på prøver av Ian MacTavish, som også har oppdrettet Cold Creek Kennel.
Ian skriver selv om Kevin:
“Wild Bird Finding: Kevin is a tremendous wild bird finder in hunting and in field trials. Besides that he is exceptionally honest and reliable. I can recall 3 separate field trial wins where his bracemate came in and flushed birds in front of Kevins point and he never moved out of his point or lost intensity.
Field Trial Record: Kevin has an exceptional record in comparatively limited field trialing. He has won in horseback handing field trials and in walking field trials on wild birds on the open prairie and in grouse and woodcock covers. Kevin has 16 field trial placements including 7 wins. His record includes 3X RU Champion on Wild Sharptail Grouse. His most recent was the Region 19 Shooting Dog Championship October 3-5-2020 where he had 5 coveys pointed in his hour long brace.
Personality – Kevin has a happy disposition and he loves affection. He is well adjusted, calm yet bold and confident. He is at ease in his crate or in the house where he is well behaved, great with little kids and other dogs.
Style and Range. Kevin demonstrates strong focus and drive and is very good at responding to commands and staying to the front. He looks stylish running and has a high cracking tail. He is intense on point and high on both ends.
Training and Composure – Kevin was the easiest dog I have ever trained for steady to wing and shot. He even maintains his intensity after the birds fly – an attribute he inherited from his sire, 2x National Champion Shadow Oak Bo. He is a natural retriever and loves it. Kevin also is a natural backer and backs with style and intensity.
Registration – Kevin is registered both AKC and American Field and has an impressive pedigree. His Dam is a multiple field trial winner and his sire is 2X National Champion Shadow Oak Bo”.
