Rooster is one of the more accomplished hunt test dogs in the country, doing things few other dogs have done while rarely failing a test. He is a deceiving animal, exceptionally mild mannered in the house and when in the field 100%. Easily the best off switch we have seen to date, with exceptional line manners and steadiness. He will be a great match for bitches who may be lacking in manners in the kennel, at the line or in the house. His top notch marking skills and trainability are other serious areas he could improve along with exceptional memory. He has a middle of the road degree of sensitivity coupled with enough bottom to bounce back from corrections and continue working. His great instincts, trainability and intelligence were shown from the start- this is why his statistics don't surprise those who knew him as a pup. These traits helped Rooster achieve 4xGMPR(8-10), HRCH(10-12),MH(6-7),place 1st in a AKC Qualified All Age field trial-QAA- and place 1st over two German Shorthairs in the only bird dog tournement he entered. All this prior to 4yrs of age. Rooster is comfortable duck hunting Lake Erie or the potholes of North Dakota and pheasant hunting the ditches of southern Michigan or the slews of the west.
