Hi guys, just wanted to touch base. George had his NA (NAVHDA Natural Ability) test last weekend. He pointed 3 chukars during the field search (even grabbed one on the wing) and, taking after Stackhouse it sounds like, has turned into an enthusiastic and strong swimmer, but blew the tracking phase. He’s tracked dozens, maybe hundreds of birds this year so that was disappointing. I have my theories but it is what it is. only took home a Prize III and we were hoping for more but it’s just a trial and he’s already a proven field dog. I thought I’d send over some photos we got. I hope everything’s going well.
Richard and George
Earning any Prize is noteworthy. We always have to remind ourselves even though the Weimaraner has a steady skill set that on a given day any number of things can go awry. Everyone covets the Prize I and some folks travel from NAVHDA test to NAVHDA test to snag one. We don’t have that luxury.
The most important thing is the field performance. He is a young Weim with a solid set of skills. We are positive that competing in the NAVHDA event even though it didn’t net you the top prize helped cement the skill set even more. Thank you, for doing that and reporting back to us. Also, we love the photos you shared. Keep up the good work with George, and we wish you many years of success in the field.
