Bonnie is cooperative and lives to please which made training for all levels of testing pretty easy. Bonnie completed all her Titles by 2.8 yrs old. Her pups all show great trainability paired with cooperation. All of Bonnie's past litters with Max MH UT Prize 1 have earned NAVHDA Natural Ability Awards!

Shore Shots Atta Girl Gemma MH UT 1-204

Gemma is a truly amazing one of a kind dog! We kept her from our first Bonnie x Max breeding and have been so happy with her temperament, cooperation and her on/off switch! Gemma is very calm in the house and yet in the field she turns into a totally different dog and ranges out over 200 yards with ease. Gemma showed tons of natural ability and hunting drive at a very young age, as well as being a natural retriever. Gemma has excelled in every task we have given her whether it be AKC MH braces or NAVHDA UT training. She has a strong love for the water which made her duck training flow nicely with ease. She can easily do a 12 minute duck search with several resends and she loves every minute of it. Gemma started hunting wild pheasant in North Dakota at 11 months old as well as wild woodcock. She is an avid duck, goose, woodcock, pheasant, quail, & chucker hunter. Her points are intense and she is always rock steady and a very reliable dog on her birds. We can honestly say she has been a pleasure to train and test. She exemplifies what good breeding and proper exposure at a young age will set in stone the foundation work that brings out and shows the Natural Ability and cooperation that she and all her litter mates inherited from Bonnie and Max and the great bloodlines working up to Bonnie and Max. Gemma had 1 litter with Mason- VC DC AFC Friedelsheim’s Freight Train Mason MH. They produced a litter of 12 which went on to earn a NAVHDA Natural Ability Breeders award! Gemmas pups have gone on to be wild bird hunters as well as 1 pup with DC, AFC, MH and UT Prize 1 who is on his way to the NAVHDA Invitational for 2021! Gemma is now spayed after her 1 litter and 8 years old now. She is enjoying wild bird hunting with us as well as helping us to train our younger upcoming dogs.
