Prior to Rudys breeding we researched numerous breedings. We noticed some trends in chocolate pointing labs, the pedigrees were very close to one specific line. So many in fact that the future was alarming since the gene pool of GOOD CHOCOLATE POINTING RETRIEVERS is already small. With this in mind Rudy was bred to have strong Retriever Skills, Strong Point and upland ability from a blend of proven field trial and APLA Hall of Fame lines. Rudys pedigree matches up well with most of today's top lines by providing a great out cross option.
Rudy earned his Certified Pointing Retriever title at 9 months of age showing his natural, strong point. As a pup Rudy did well in the water and loved to train at a very early age.
We hunted Rudy at one year old, using him as a guide dog. He did a very nice job, advancing every day and was a joy to work in the field. His work ethic and drive to find birds was very encouraging. His ability in the field convinced us he deserved an opportunity to earn upper level titles.
In the spring of 2017 Rudy received his Hunting Retriever title with the Hunting Retriever Club. In the fall of 2017 he received his Master and Grand Master titles, then a 1.5 x Grand Master Pointing Retriever title with the American Pointing Labrador Association.
Rudy earned his Hunting Retriever Champion title (HRCH) in the fall of 2018 with the Hunting Retriever Club.
In the spring of 2019 we finished Rudys APLA career with a 4 X GMPR title. On to AKC Master Hunter.
