CH SALTYDOG'S ELEVENTH HOUR MH WCX

DUKE'S ROAD TO MASTER HUNTER

DUKE'S MASTER TITLE IN MONCTON JUNE 11, 2017


CH SALTYDOG'S ELEVENTH HOUR MH WCX -

Our boy Dukie, has just become Nova Scotia's 2nd Duck Toller to attain the CKC Hunt Test title of Master Hunter! Next we'll attempt to improve on that title with a GMH(Grand Master Hunter) title.

On Sunday, June 11th, 2017, Duke completed his 5th pass at Master in Riverview New Brunswick. A special thanks to the Moncton Retriever Club and Judges Walter and Barb Vessey for putting together a very tough, but fair hunt test.

Sunday, May 21, 2017, Dukie earns his 4th ribbon at Eastern Flyway Hunting Retriever Club's Master Hunt Test. He ran a strong test and was among the top dog's today. Very proud of our Little Red Dog!

Saturday, July 16th, 2016, Dukie hangs in there on a very hot and long water series. His water marks were not as strong as we would have hoped for, but he didn't have to be handled on any of the land series. His water blind was strong at 114yds, fighting a cross wind and swimming past the location of the memory bird from the water marks. Team work got us through on our biggest test challenge to date. Once again, thanks to the Moncton Retriever Club for great weekend of dog work.

Sunday, September 13, 2015, Duke puts in a strong effort at the Eastern Flyway's Hunting Retriever Club in Ardoise, Nova Scotia and gets his 2nd Master Hunt Test pass. It was a great weekend with all three Maritime provinces being represented. On Saturday, 2 of 8 running dogs passed and on Sunday, 3 of 8 dogs passed on what was another very challenging series of Master tests. Thanks to all who attended our club's final HT's of 2015!


Dukie passes his very 1st Master Hunter Test in Moncton on July 18, 2015. He is a great team player and will need every once of effort to compete at this level of hunt test. Good job Dukie!

DUKIE
 
On Sunday, July 22, 2012, on the marshes of Tantramar, Dukie made it 3 in a row to add the title of Junior Hunter to his resume. It was a great event hosted by our friends of the Moncton Retriever Club. We'll have a look at the upcoming WCI test in September and then focus on Senior Hunter in 2013.
We just can't say no to this loveable goof!

On Saturday, September 15th, 2012, at the Eastern Flyway's Working Certificate Tests, Gracie completed her very first field test. She ran strong and confident as she completed the WC test with ease.

5 SRAIGHT PASSES IN SENIOR HUNTER

 

 

Dukie-
On Saturday, August 9th, 2014 Dukie ran all series clean and passed his 4th straight Senior Hunter test in Brooklyn, NS. Eastern Flyway's Hunting Retriever Club were hosting the Hunt Test events and a great time was had by all. Duke ran again on Sunday and added pass #5 after receiving his title on Saturday. Although, not a hard charging dog, Dukie is steady, an excellent marker and real team player. If the desire is there, a Master Hunter Title could be in his future!
 
On Saturday July19th, 2014 Dukie passes his 3rd straight SH test. The Moncton Hunt Club was the host this time. We all battled the heat, but Dukie came through with another strong effort and requires just one more pass to gain that Senior Hunter title.
On Sunday July 6th, 2014 Duke passes his 2nd Senior Hunter test. The Sunpoke Hunt Club put on a nice event and challenged the dogs in every series. He is now half way to his title and hopefully he can get there in 4 straight! Way to go Dukie!!!!


WORKING CERTIFICATE EXCELLENCE

DUKIE ADDS ANOTHER TITLE

WCX

 

Duke-
 
Finishes the season off with another title at Eastern Flyway's Working Certificate Test's.
Duke added the final in the series of WC's with a WCX victory. He made the land blind look tougher than it was, but did a great job on the land and water marks. Finished in style with a solid water blind and brought home the WCX title. I think a little R&R Duck Hunting is in order now!  Good Dog!
