Trigger did exceptionally well in working tests and field trials and was a Two Day Open Trial Winner.
In 2013 he qualified for the I.G.L. Retriever Championship and also the Irish Retriever Championship and did very well.
In November 2015 Stefanie entered Trigger in two Open Field trials in Hungary; he was placed 2nd and then FIRST in the One Day Open.
Trigger unfortunately died in December 2015 (far too early) but will be remembered as a joy to watch work with his fabulous tail action. He sired several very good litters and will be very sadly missed.
