Ribbon came to us in June of 2012 and quickly spun her way into our hearts!     She is a driven girl while hunting and has an unbelievable natural ability to flush grouse.  She quarters nonstop, but her hunting partner best be ready because when stops, she listens, she focuses and then explodes into ‘game on’ mode.  She is off on a two-legged start to flush her find. 

Ribbon attained her Obedience Trial Championship in early February 2016!   In five weekends of trialing, she qualified for her Obedience Trial Championship Excellent in April, 2017 and at the same trial received her second HIT  (High In Trial Award).   She completed her MASTER Obedience Trial Championship in October 2018 after taking time off for breeding and field. Ribbon was #2 Toller in Canada for Obedience in 2014, 2016 & 2017 and #4 in 2015 with very limited trialing.   She is a focused and very willing worker to please her family and catches on to her jobs very quickly.

In other venues, Ribbon completed her Canadian Conformation Championship and  gathered points towards her Grand Championship Title, with the majors and Best of Breed qualifications finished. 

In June 2017, Ribbon received her Working Certificate Excellent and Mark is working towards handling her to a Senior Hunt Title.  Ribbon has also completed the necessary qualifications required for the NSDTRCC’s Dobirstein Award (national club versatility award).  Rally Excellent Title was completed in limited trials when convenient and with little emphasis put on Rally.    

At the 2015 National Specialty, she was Best Bitch out of the new CKC Field Dog Class, qualified in Open B obedience and also was a member of the Top Obedience Team,  alongside Sully and his obedience family. 

Ribbon enjoys running and playing with other dogs but if there is a job to do, she is a bit more focused on working with her people.

Although I love Ribbon's biddable nature and her love of hunting, she will not be bred again.   Two AI attempts were not successful and she is going to be seven years in 2019.  Although she is on the small side (17 ¾”), she has a huge heart and is a well-balanced bitch and a great generational pedigree.  Love working with this girl!
