Our Dogs


Our Sweet Honey of Silverbrook JH

Honey's sire (HRCH / GMHR Silverbrook’s Amazing Sparkle BoyMH) competed and earned master level titles in AKC, UKC, and NAHRA hunt test venues.  Her dam (MHR Silverbrook's Mustang Sally) competed and was awarded a Master Hunting Retriever Title in the North American Hunter Retriever Association (NAHRA) events.  Honey is a loving family pet that enjoys children and will retrieve anything thrown.  She enjoys lying on the couch or at your feet while in the house but changes gears and has all the energy you desire when hunting.  Honey was my primary hunting dog from 2007 through 2009.  She has retrieved several hundred ducks and geese while hunting and is extremely quiet and steady in a goose pit/blind.  She participates in AKC hunt tests and received a Junior Hunter title in the fall of 2009.  She was breed twice to FC AFC Small Craft Advisory and produced 10 puppies in each litter.  Some of these puppies are competing in AKC Hunt Tests.  The most well known of these puppies is Tank Lakosky, owned by Lee and Tiffany Lakosky of “The Crush” hunting television show.  Tank was trained by Tom Dokken for pheasant hunting and to find/retrieve shed antlers.  Tank won the Junior and Amateur titles at the 2011 NASHDA World Shed Hunting Dog Championship and was a Finalist in 2012.  Many others from these litters have had successful hunting seasons for duck, goose, grouse, and pheasant.  Honey continues training for hunting and to run senior level events.

Pirate’s Ellie of Churn Creek MH


The search for our next female dog took us across the United States.  Ellie comes from Lyle Steinman at Castile Creek Kennels in Stewartsville, Missouri.  Lyle is well known for his success in the Super Retriever Series which is televised on ESPN and is equally successful in AKC Hunt Test qualifying about 20 dogs each year for the Master National Hunt Test.  Ellie’s dam (Calypso Maybe I'M Amazed) competed in Field Trials, Hunt Tests, and the Super Retriever Series.  Her sire (FC AFC Land Ahoy) comes from Oregon and competes in Field Trials on the West Coast.  He has accumulated over 173 All-Age Points.  He was the 2009 High Point Open Dog, 2008 and 2010 National Amateur   Finalist.  Ellie acquired her Junior Hunter Title in the fall of 2011 by passing 4 tests in less than a 1 month period.  She earned her Senior Hunter Title in July 2013.  Ellie earned her Master Title in July   2015 at t  he Western New York Retriever Club  summer hunt test  .  She is rock solid on the line, an incredible marker, and runs challenging   blinds with incredible speed.  She runs blinds as hard as she does marks.  She is lightning fast and overcomes any obstacle   presented.  She has a small muscular frame and weighs 60 pounds.  She is very quiet and calm in the house but truly has a switch of adrenalin when the bumpers or ducks come out.  She lives to retrieve and does not know the definition of the word “quit”.
