Training camp with Ray, preparing for multi hunting test. The main focus is on work after shot, a lot of various retrieving, both in water and on land – to prepare a versatile hunting dog for practical hunting. Ray has great passion for game, she is eager to work and has great will to please, it was absolute joy to see her so focused over 3 days and deliver in every discipline. Ray also passed her first open class blood track and was awarded 1st prize. I’m very pleased with her development and looking forward to start the multi hunting test in the future with her.
Snaiper’s Mad Max, Falco, has passed the bloodtracking ability test. Congratulations Sara and Svante!
Big congratulations to Satu Pränni and Northern Arrows kennel in Finland! 7 strong puppies were born this morning to Trubon Ghuste Trakhaos – Khaos and our Snaiper’s Luke. We are looking forward to our new little star to move to Sweden in the end of the summer.
Finally, the last title, CIBT – International Beauty and Working Champion is confirmed for Snaiper’s Luke. It has been a hell of a ride and he has enjoyed every bit of it. It has been a great journey with many new friends and interesting insights, especially in hunting trials abroad.
Snaiper’s first litter turns 11 years today, happy birthday Izzie (Muru), Indy and Isa (Leia)! Sadly, Leia is among the stars since many years due to a tragic accident. She is still one of the brightest stars for me in the night sky. Indy and Muru still brighten our every single day. Such beautiful hunters, hope for many more happy hunting days together!
Today’s ultra confirmed that puppies are expected after Trubon Guste Trakhaos – Khaos and Snaiper’s Luke http://snaiperdogs.com/en/our-dogs/snaipers-luke/ in Finland in mid May. Khaos is an import from England from working line breeder Suzi Burton and has American, English and German working lines in her pedigree.

Gotland is one of my favorite places for the field trials. The landscape is special on this island, open and low, it seems that there is more sky on Gotland than anywhere else. Its almost always windy. And the birds are wild. It is a real challenge to achieve a prize in a field trial here, the dogs have to be precise and solid in their bird handling to manage the wild partridge. We had a nice training weekend together with the GSP club and today we were lucky to get 1st prize both with Thelma and Ray in open class! The weather was warm and sunny, with only a light breeze, huge grounds to cover and many wild partridge couples out in the fields enjoying the sun. More than pleased with our girls, they worked very well in the heat – with high speed and good range. Thelma’s next start is in elite class, Ray has one more 1st prize in open class to achieve.
