Maggie is out of our 2013 litter between Birddog's Amazing Grace's and Three Rivers Set the Hook MH QAA.

Maggie is the real deal. She has a tremendous amount of drive, yet is easy to train. She is very intelligent and learns new concepts quickly. Her desire to please is unparalleled. Maggie can flat out mark and works with you to get the job done. Maggie entered into training with Rusty Haglund of Trigger Time Kennels at 14 months of age and within 15 months earned her Junior, Senior and Master Hunter titles. She was 29 months old when she got her MH title and has earned two additional Master Passes that count toward the 2016 Master Nationals. She enjoyed the winter home and had her first litter in January 2016. She returned to Rusty in the middle of June 2016 to continue working toward the 2016 Master Nationals. After a 10 month break and less than 14 days of actual training, Maggie went on to earn 3 straight additional passes toward qualifying for Master Nationals. On a road trip headed to another hunt test on an extremely hot and humid day, Maggie ended up suffering a heat stroke that was caught by her trainer. Due to our trainer's knowledgeable eye and diligence in stopping to check the dogs every 1.5-2 hours, he caught it and ultimately saved Maggie's life. She was able to receive the medical care she needed at that time and has since made a full recovery. We are so proud of this little lady. She is simply a very special dog. Maggie is fantastic in the house and she definitely is a mom's girl. She is undeniably the most loyal dog and will do anything to please. She prefers to be with me at all times and is a champion snuggle bug too!

After much consideration, we decided it was a complete disservice to Maggie to not give her a chance at Master Nationals. On April 20th she returned to Rusty Haglund to work toward qualifying for the 2017 Master Nationals. With just 1 month of training after another 10 month break, Maggie was entered in her first Master test and passed!  We are so proud of this girl and are so excited for what 2017 may bring for her!

Maggie is a unique girl when it comes to chocolate.  You have to go back 3 generations before you see the first chocolate dog in her pedigree. Her pedigree is loaded with some of the best field trial dogs in history, proven hunt test titled dogs, as well as outstanding upland and waterfowl hunting dogs that we know personally.

Maggie's sire is a very talented son of 2009 NAFC FC "Hook" and grandson of  FC AFC Land Ahoy "Pirate".

We are absolutely thrilled to have added Brook to our Bird Dog Labs family in 2014. She came to us from a kennel setting and blossomed in the home environment. She is a total gem with a wonderful personality. She adores all people and gets along well with all other animals she meets. She is so sweet and loving. When it comes to working she is all business in the field. She has incredible drive, is very intelligent, consistent accurate marking, excellent line manners and is a true team player. To top it off, Brook has an absolutely fantastic pedigree.

Brook's sire is FC Magic Trick's Autumn Creek Tazz. He ran through six series in the 2013 National Open and also through 9 series in the 2014 National Open.  Tazz is the son of FC CFC CAFC TaylorsLab Magic Trick MH CD (National Finalist) and a QAA female out of FC AFC Dare to Dream "Cosmo" and FC AFC Drake's Bay Kate's Choice.  Brook's dam is Widgeons Elements of Success MH QAA who is a daughter of FC AFC Tiger McBunn and a QAA daughter of NAFC FC AFC Carbon Copy of Horn Creek (Hall of Fame Retriever).

Lucy is a gorgeous dark yellow female with fox red highlights. She has a shorter stature, but is built like a tank. She is very athletic and muscular.

In the field, Lucy is enthusiastic and methodical. She clearly thinks about what she is doing, yet is fearless about getting the job done. She takes directions nicely and works with you as a team. Lucy is a strong marker, but tends to use her nose in thicker cover. She quarters naturally and has demonstrated a natural point since she was a puppy. She has a middle of the ground sensitivity. Lucy doesn't need strong corrections, but can definitely handle pressure. Lucy seems to enjoy challenging situations. She will figure out how to get to the birds and is very tenacious about it!

Lucy has a very happy and loving personality. She enjoys snuggling at night and is one of our key little puppy socializers.

Remi is a big, powerful, gorgeous dark fox red female that is simply amazing!

Remi has been in training with Rusty Haglund of Trigger Time Kennels and is getting ready to run Master hunt tests in 2017. Remi is a beast in the field! She lives to work and is as hard charging as they come. Once she is MH titled, she will return home and have her first litter at that time.

Remi has an excellent off switch when home and will deliberately seek out affection and snuggle time. She is funny how she goes about it too. When the other dogs are wanting to go outside she likes to hang back, and will flip over for some tummy rubs.

She has a very sweet, happy disposition and loves everyone she meets. Dizzy absolutely loves to work. She has proven to be a strong natural marker, uses her nose in difficult cover and is a true team player. Dizzy lives for the good girl and will work with you to get the job done.

    (Hall of Fame Retriever CNAFC CFC FC AFC Aces High III X HRCH Mad River's Supernova MH - daughter of Hall of Fame Retriever NFC FC AFC Clubmead's Road Warrior X FC Mad River's Maggie Mcbunn)

Gabby was the other unplanned addition and joined our Bird Dog Labs family in August 2015. She came to us with Dizzy from a kennel home. Gabby has since learned house manners and loves being part of the family. She is a smaller, compact chocolate female that has totally changed my previous stance regarding the ability of smaller dogs. This girl is intense in the field and is best described as retrieving machine! There is nothing she won't do! Gabby is always happy and I frequently refer to her as our resident social butterfly. She gets along with everyone and is great with socializing the older puppies. She thrives on individual attention from her humans and is so eager to please. We have high hopes for this little lady!
Gabby also has an excellent pedigree and comes from fully health tested parents.
