BlackFoot's Watch Me Smash This, JH (SH1) CGC
One of the most uniquely special dogs I have ever worked.... "Big Lou" is our up-coming super star. He earned his JH title as well as one pass toward his SH title completely being trained without the use of an electric collar or having gone through the usual process of "force fetching" a dog for the sport. While I am in no way against the use of such methods or tools, it's the simple fact that he has just never shown me a reason to use these forms of indirect pressure during his training. He gives 110% as a thoughtful and calm yet HIGH DRIVE balanced dog.
Big Lou is not just a "field dog" ... he is my full time companion and house dog. He and I have completed the GRUELING difficult US Canine Biathlon race 2X together! In 2018 we finished the race 19th out of close to 400 in our division and in 2019 we came in 10th place of 432! He is a true warrior, an athlete and still a sweet and gentle all at once.
In addition to training for adventure races and hunt tests, Big Lou is also a canine model ... and he does Agility! To me, this boy defines what a dog should be... looks, brain, drive, intelligence, he is biddable, brave, and gentle.
A hard charging extremely stylish dog with an easy attitude. Check out "Big Lou's" Fantastic pedigree here!

Big Lou is my dream made a reality. He is the perfect product of my years developing the BlackFoot name. While he does not have the "alphabet soup" of titles (yet) don't let that fool you. This dog is the "real deal" and it's only a matter of time as those titles grow!
We look forward to watching our boy produce some high drive, good natured offspring. I would reccomend Big Lou to anyone looking to balance a bitch who is on the "high" end of "wild drive" spectrum or for anyone who is looking for a sire who will potentially produce a very versatile puppy; hunt test, obedience trials, agility, fast cat, dock diving etc...
