Both parents come from long lines of hunting dogs that also competed in AKC hunt tests and Field Trials.  These puppies come from incredible proven genetics and should become outstanding hunting dogs and companions around the house. Both parents are quiet in the house and good with children.  These pups should be highly athletic and are unlikely to be suitable for families that will not provide them with basic training and lots of exercise. Pups are covered by a 26 month guarantee against genetic problems of hips, elbows, and eyes as well as a general guarantee that they are in good health at the time of delivery. Pups will receive early neurological stimulation. They will have dew claws removed, be vet examined and have initial shots and preventative deworming medication.  They will be well socialized with children, adults, and other animals.  Weather permitting, the pups will be exposed to birds, water, crates, travel in vehicles, and collars. 

Churn Creek's Red Haired Country Girl SH has hunted waterfowl for 2 seasons.  She earned her AKC Junior Hunter Title in October 2015 and her Senior Hunter Title in November 2015.  In September 2017 she passed her first Master event and will continue running tests for her Master Title after this litter.  Reba has a beautiful fox red coat and weighs 65 pounds.  She has an extremely laid back personality in the house and at hunt tests but very stylish when performing.  She is solid on the line and has never flinched or broke while performing or honoring in training or at tests.  She is an incredible marker, and runs blinds with confidence. Reba is very quiet and calm in the house but energetic during training or hunting scenarios.  Reba's mother is D&S Benelli's Mae Dayz MH and her sire is Medal of Honor and has earned the title of Qualified All-Aged 2.   

 

Stormy is a seasoned hunter and has retrieved hundreds of ducks and geese and is a true gentleman in the hunting blind. He received his first Junior Hunter pass at 8 months of age and completed his Junior Hunter title at 11 months of age. He is very steady on the line, does complicated double marks out to 150 yards, and runs blinds extremely hard out to 200 yards.  He was training at the Master level, but was retired from running AKC hunt tests do to the stress and anxiety of the hunt test scenarios.  He developed a bark reflex with scenarios containing live flyers.  He does not exhibit this same reflex while hunting.  Stormy retired from hunt tests after receiving his first senior qualifying score but continues to hunt waterfowl.  Stormy is an extremely loving pet that would climb into your lap if you let him but really wants you to throw items to retrieve. He constantly carries around bumpers, balls, sticks, or other items looking for someone to play with. He gets along well with children and other dogs.  Stormy has sired several previous litters and many of the offspring have become hunting machines.  Others have run AKC agility events, dock dog competitions, and some have become loving family pets.  Stormy’s sire (FC AFC Small Craft Advisory) retired from Field Trials after accumulated 140 All-Age points and qualifying for 8 National events. His dam is Yardley Labs Ms T-Maxx and became Qualified All-Age in AKC Field Trials.  Stormy's is a 85 pound male with the following Health Clearances - OFA Hips Good, OFA Elbows Normal, EIC Clear, and CNM Clear, CERF clear.
