Griz is a record setting dog in the APLA by becoming the first 4X GMPR at less than 2 years of age.  At 23 months of age he broke the previous record of his half brother by over 6 months.  Griz also went 5/5 in AKC senior 1 year of age!

I also ran Griz in his and my first shoot to retrieve event and finished a very respectable third (it would have been 2nd if I shot better).  This finish was  over 28 traditional pointing breed dogs in the pointing division.  The event was the Pheasants Forever National Quail Championship in Kansas City and put on by Bird Hunters United.  We plan to run more of these events next year!

Griz is one of those special dogs that has a huge motor in the field, but is very controllable and wants nothing more than to be a team player. Griz has an unbelievable demeanor for a dog with his power. He is truly a gentleman that is extremely intelligent & confident, but doesn’t have a dominate bone in his body.  He is an excellent marking dog and is rock solid steady at the line.  Griz has been a natural pointing dog from day 1 and point’s way off birds.  He is extremely reliable and is allowed to run big in the CRP fields of South Dakota or comes in close for the heavy cover sloughs of Iowa.

Griz has a loaded pedigree including 6-Grand Master Pointing Retrievers, 7-Master Hunters, 8-Amateur Field Champions, 5-Field Champions,1-Qualified All Age, 1- 2xNational Amateur Field Champion, and 4- APLA Hall of Fame dogs!  Some of the biggest names in the Pointing lab world and the Field Trial world have come together to create a truly exceptional animal!
