Ale was my novice dog for 2014 and has developed with the promise I believed he could; by winning out of novice the same year.
After attaining several placings in Novice Trials; in mid December 2014 he ran in three trials in one week coming 4th, 2nd and then1st at Herts, Beds, Bucks, Berks & Hants Retriever Society Novice Stake 13th December.
He started his 2015 test season well by getting a COM in his first Open test hosted by Yorkshire Golden Retriever Club in March 2015. Then in September 2015 he won the Yorkshire Gundog Two day Open Trial in style; becoming an Open Field Trial Winner and qualifying for the IGL 2015. In October 2015, Ale then won the Labrador Club Of Scotland Two Day trial which made him up to my seventh Field Trial Champion.
Ale continues the excellent line inherited from his sire Blue. When Ale's lineage is examined; I feel this shows that success is in the breeding and is passed down through the generations.
