Feren Update July 2023:  Feren now has 13 points towards her championship and needs only two more point to earn her champion title.   She is learning rally and is entered in rally trials at the end of July.   

Feren was born in October 2020.  She has been busy with various activities since the move to northern Illinois.  She continues to go to dog shows.   She is close to finishing her championship as she has twelve point towards her needed fifteen points.   At two shows she beat champions and won five point majors each day.   

Feren went to a barn hunt training session where she was introduced to a caged rat.   Then she had the opportunity to find the rat in an opaque container.   She then needed to find the container hidden among straw bales.   She loved sniffing and barked and dug at the container when she found it.  I hope to see a RAT title behind her name in the future.


In May 2022 we started driving up to Wisconsin weekly to do field work.   Field work includes finding, flushing, and retrieving birds on land and in water.   Feren's retrieving skills are expanding...she now does 15 yard retrieves of birds in the water.  At home we continue to practice recall/come and retrieving.  

Feren had her OFA testing done in November 2022:  hips OFA GOOD, elbows normal, thyroid normal, and eyes normal.  She has 12 points towards her AKC championship including two five point majors.  Whether or not she completes her championship, she will be bred in the summer/fall of 2023.
