BlackFoot's Ramblin Tide, JH
(Available for stud Late March 2016)
One of the most exciting and talented dogs I have EVER worked.... "Reef" is our up-coming super star. He is a STUNNING example of our breeding program. To us Reef is the whole package: Brains, drive, perseverance, affection, confidence, personality, and LOOKS!
A hard charging extremely stylish dog with intense water desire. This boy is a fast learner and has been running MH level blinds and marks with honest style and ease from a very young age. He has a great memory for multiple marks and from day to day his lesson progression goes smoothly... once Reef learns a task we can easily proof and move forward - he is not the type of dog that requires many multiple repetitions in order to learn a skill... I would consider Reef a "HARD" dog - he handles pressure very well. Nothing short of a 16 foot brick wall could stop this dog from getting his bird.
On a different front; Reef loves obedience training and also works respectfully and focused with positive reinforcement techniques. He naturally offers nice heads-up heeling as well as long sit / stays and down / stays. He is a dream as a jogging partner and thrives on his daily exercise.
If you have a bitch who tends more toward the sensitive side and are looking for some "grit" and intensity for your bloodline... Reef would be a nice compliment. If you already have a fire breather ... be prepared to tell your puppy buyers to "hold and tight and enjoy the ride!"
Reef is 23" tall and weighs about 68 lbs.
We look forward to watching our boy produce some high drive hunt test and agility offspring and hoping to see some competitive field trial pups down the road out of him.
