We are very excited to have the opportunity to breed Canoe to Quihnn:
Our goal for this breeding is to produce intelligent, hunting / test/ trial companions that are athletic, biddable, can be easily trained in any venue, and become a member of the family. The pedigree is a wonderful blend of field competitors, conformation and obedience dogs. Some of the influential dogs in the pedigree include Canoe's sire Edge - Can Show Champion and Master Hunter. Her grandsire Push, Canada's first Triple Champion in Field, Show & Obedience. Her Grandsire Sabre is the only Golden in the last 35 years to obtain an American Show Championship and All Age Field Trial Points. Quihnn' sire Manny is an amazing boy, GRCA Dual Dog Hall of Fame, BISS, HRCH and ** with a wonderful biddable temperament. His dam Sierra is a CKC MH and earned her HRCH passing straight tests all owner handled & trained. On both sides of the pedigree is their great grandsire Trooper, a MH *** wonderful field competitor and hunting dog who just celebrated his 15th birthday.
Information on Canoe:
Canoe is an energetic, confident, loving and gentle Golden Retriever who true to her breed, lives to hunt and retrieve. She works hard at any challenge before her, giving it her all. Luckily she comes with an on off switch and settles well in the house or crate. She is also good at entertaining herself with toys and hanging out in the back yard. Canoe also loves intensely and is the worlds best cuddler. She adores people, young and old and will probably do some therapy work in the future. She gets along well with our 14 year old Golden Toque and all other dogs. She has had the privilege of being at the farm during puppy rasing time and is a natural at being Auntie Canoe to pups with a lovely instinctive gentle nature, great training for her own pups. Canoe loves to romp and play, given the opportunity to interact/play with all her doggie friends
Canoe's favorite place to be is in the water in all seasons, rain or shine. She is a strong swimmer and often will just go for a swim about. We have tried dock diving, and to no ones surprise she was awesome at leaping and qualifying for the finals. I am sure dock diving is in this girls future.
Field training is a new venture for me and Canoe has been the perfect companion to teach and travel this road with me and Toque. In the field Canoe is intensely focused with a strong prey drive and great water courage. Her marking ability is awesome and she has a lovely soft mouth. Canoe has achieved her JH and WC in 2018 and we are currently training for our SH and WCI. Canoe has had some agility foundation training and will likely compete in CKC/AAC trials as this seems to be something else she loves and will excel in.
Canoe has been one of the best things to happen to me. She is full of an immense joy for life, always seems to have something in her mouth to greet me or who ever comes her way. When I come in from shopping she need to help unload the groceries and carries what ever she can get in her mouth.
Canoe is a very balanced girl, standing 21 1/2 at the withers, well muscled and weighs 62lbs. She has a beautiful soft expression with dark eyes, good pigment, good ear set and correct scissors bite with full dentition. Her front is powerful with good depth of chest, rib spring, nice upper arm and decent shoulder layback. Canoe is not long in body, she is a compact girl with good rear angles, correct tail set & carriage.
Information on Quihnn:
Quihnn is the only male from our Wing Litter (Manny x Sierra). He stood out as a baby puppy and matured into a biddable sound athletic working Golden. Quihnn lives with his owner Diane Burrows in Port Alberni BC and easily obtained his CKC Senior Hunt. Quihnn also is an amazing tracking dog completing his UTDX on first attempt and only one title away from being a Tracking Champion. At 3 years of age Quihnn earned his Can Show Championship along with proving to be an exceptional working dog with focus, good play and prey drive, fast bird pick up and strong water courage. He has a nice balance between drive, birdiness and biddability with an exceptional temperament. He lives with other intact males, plays well with all dogs/ puppies, loves kids and has a good off switch in the house.
Quihnn is a nicely balanced boy. He stands 23 1/2 at the withers, well muscled and weighs 73lbs. He has a lovely soft expression with very dark eyes, dark pigment, good ear set and correct scissors bite with full dentition. His front is powerful with good depth of chest, rib spring, nice upper arm and shoulder layback. If we could fault him it would be just slightly long in appearance but he isn't long in loin, it's in the rib cage. His rear is strong with good angles and correct tail set & carriage. We are super excited to to breed this boy to Canoe. His first litter with Kikki produced high drive athletic biddable working dogs including a Can Show Champion training for Master Hunt, the youngest Golden to pass SAR test in BC and some exceptional hunting companions.
