Coach is a beautiful year two and a half year old springer male trained up to the intermediate level. He is ready to go hunting and will make a great family pet as well.
Coach loves people and is very obedient. He is steady to wing and shot such that he sits when the bird that he has flushed rises and is shot. He retrieves promptly to hand and has a soft mouth. He has had pheasant, quail and ducks shot over him. (A standard in the Big Sky training program.)
Coach is a great swimmer and a very effective duck dog - nonslip steady.
When hunting upland birds he runs in a sweeping pattern that is easily within shooting range of the handler. He responds well to both hand and whistle signals such as coming in closer or turning to go any direction the handler indicates.
Coach comes from a well bred line of field springers who have proven themselves in AKC field trails. His sire is Blue River Hardy (who is out of Field Champion Blue River Fast Track) and his mother is sister to Field Champion Windy Plains Rook..
