He is very good at carrying and retrieving game. He retrieves straight back to his owner.
There is a strong bond between the owner and him and he is willing to subordinate.
Throughout the test he is open to people and acts confidently.
The parcours with the optical and acoustic signals arouses his interest.
To shooting he responds in a confident and interested way.
A confident, happy and very active male! (Brigitte Weber)
For more than 14 months we were thinking about how to go on with our breeding.
After careful consideration we decided to get a Toller from the country of its origin, Canada, from the Foxgrove Kennel of Sue Kish, Diane Loiseau and Fred Bergeron.
'Foxgrove's Moonlight Gunner' adds to our team "Hunter's Moonlight". It now is a four-leaf-clover – two males and two females.
From the first day Gunner proved himself to be a self-confident, happy, quick-witted and playful puppy which brings sunshine into our family.
Having grown out of being a puppy and youngster, we started his hunting training in spring 2010. Gunner shows natural talent for retrieving all kinds of game and impresses us with his very good nose. His will to please and to work with us is always present, but at the same time he shows a high degree of independence and determination when working. He accepts any kind of overgrowth.
Gunnar still needs a consistent and calm hand in order to bring his energy to good and successful performance.
In September 2010 he and Joachim successfully passed the Jugendprüfung (JP/R) of the DRC and the Jagdeignungsprüfung (JEPs) of the JGHVs.
In October we did the Bringleistungsprüfung (BLP) and at the tender age of 18 months, Gunnar become best in searching and best dog of the weekend.
In winter we will now continue to train and refine his dummy work.
In spring 2011 Gunner is successful in the show ring again: at the CACIB in Munich he became "Best male" with V1, CAC, CACIB and BOB! At the end he came in the ring of honnor under the 5 best dogs of the FCI group 8. His presentation was perfect!
April 2011: Gunner become studdog in DRC with "Jagdliche Leistungszucht"
August 2011: With the very good hunting results of Gunner's parents (Foxgrove's Whirling Dervish: SH; Cedar Fog Midnight Seduxtion: MH), Gunner becomes studdog in DRC with "Spezielle Jagdliche Leistungszucht"
