Calvin made his first hunting trip to Montana when he was 5 months old, and he didn't
just go for the ride. We hunted birds over him and had a great time watching him
learn about wild pheasants. At 10 months old he earned a NAVDHA Natural Ability Prize
2 (103 pts). He quickly established himself as our primary hunting dog with his
intensity and bidability.
Calvin stood about 27" and weighed approximately 80 lbs. He had a dense, harsh
outer coat, tight short undercoat, and was dark liver and white ticked. He had correct
dark eyes. He was whelped on June 25th, 1998.
While a big dog, Calvin had tremendous endurance and hunted hard all day. He swam
strongly and handled well on waterfowl, never quitting in search for a downed bird.
Calvin's temperament is excellent. He loves people and getting attention. Calvin
is not dog aggressive and has no problem working in the field with other male dogs.
Every year we took him to the Sportsman's Show in Puyallup, WA. where he meets hundreds
of strangers. He earned his bench Ch in 2000.
Calvin produces his coat, temperament, and bird hunting ability in his kids. At
a young age his kids have already received JH titles, NAVDHA NA titles, and conformation
titles. And most importantly they are good hunting and family companions.
*Calvin is available to approved bitches in frozen semen only.*
