Litter pedigree

Willie (Woodecoy Carpe Diem CA WC CCA CGC, Canadian JH (2 AKC Senior Hunter legs, 2 AKC JH legs, 2 AKC Rally novice legs) has been totally owner trained and handled. He shows nice ability in the field, an excellent marker, good water attitude, and definately is a team player. My work schedule has hampered his title quest but he picked up 2 AKC Senior Hunter passes (as well as 2 JH legs) in his first 2 AKC SH tests in May 2014. In his second SH test he was 1 of 5, out of 26 dogs to pass. HIs marking ability shined in the Inland Valley Retriever Clubs Single Series in 2014 where he earned second place in a tiebreaker finish, with his housemate Arson narrowly beating him for first place. He will resume training in the field to finish his SH title in the spring. He is also being trained in obedience and is doing well. He earned his Certificate of Conformation Assessment with nice scores. He has correct structure, all his OFA clearances, full dentition, gets along well with other dogs, plenty of energy in the field and settles down nicely in the house.

Kimber (Goldenloch Waters Edge Hot Shot SH) is on lease from Laura Weinmann at Watersedge Kennels. Kimber is also owner trained and handled, and completed her AKC Senior Hunter Title in 4 straight tests. After puppies she will resume training for Master. Kimber has nice structure, is flashy and driven in the field with great marking and water attitude. Kimber has the most stable and amazing personality. I picked her up at Seatac airport (flown in from Boston), drove north to train in Canada; drove back home to southern California; and introduced her to our other dogs and she has just taken everything in stride. She gets along well with other dogs, settles nicely in the house and is confident without being bitchy, just a pleasure to be around. She also has full OFA clearances.
