Rocky is a big, strong handsome Labrador with an excellent nose. He has acquired his sire's wonderful calm temperament.
His 2018 debut in trials, demonstrated Rocky's wonderful disposition, having done exceptionally well attaining 4th in Lothian and Borders Novice trial and then WINNING Northumberland and Durham's All Aged Trial at Eggleston Fell - which is a very testing ground.
Rocky made a good start to his 2019 trialling season by attaining 4th in Southern & Western Counties Field Trial Society Two Day Open trial at Nevill Holt in Sept 2019. He followed this with a good 2nd Place in October 2019, at the National Gamekeepers Org. Two Day Open at Emblehope and Burngrange Estate and followed this swiftly with another 2nd place at the two day trial hosted by Gordon District GDC. Rocky continued his winning ways in November, as he picked up a C.O.M. at the SEGS Two Day open qualifier. In December Rocky ran a very good trial at Gordon District Gundog Club’s 12 dog Open Retriever trial held at Tulchan Estate in December when he was awarded 3rd Place.
I am enjoying working with Rocky and am sure there is a lot more to come from him.
