We recently moved to Fergus Falls, MN. Living in town is quiet a change. Puppies will be raised in town until they are 4 weeks old before moving out to the family farm. On the farm they will be able to start going for walks, introduced to birds, water, and different terrain. My family and I have been raising Goldens for over 40 years. We also raise poultry, pheasants, ducks, horses and cattle over the years.
The family farm has numerous streams running through it with a few spots deep enough to give the puppies their first lessons on swimming. There is plenty of room for them to exercise. We do not have pheasants this year. However, they still get introduced to the scent and wings. I raise puppies that come from strong hunting lines with the intention that they go to hunting families.
I had hoped to get into field trials with Shooter but instead decided to go back to school. She is a great hunter, has lots of drive, does well at finding the pheasants and retrieving ducks. She loves water and gets very excited when she sees a gun. When I ride horse through some of the near by wildlife reserves Shooter is always kicking up the pheasants.
Shooter's sire is Push Comes to Shove. He is the only living Golden Retriever to earn a triple championship (CH FT/AFTCH, OTCH) before the age of 2. If you would like to read Push's story you can follow the link.
Shooter's dam Firesides at Your Beck' N Call is currently running open and amatuer trials. She is an excellent marker and strong at her blinds with loads of heart and desire.
