Heads Up Kennels News, New Litters

Clyde X Chili

We are thrilled to announce our second breeding for this fall between RV’s Atr Gangstaman *** aka Clyde and Heads Up Cayenne Pepper SH (Master passes) WCX aka Chili.

The breeding is planned for late summer/early fall 2021.

Clyde X Chili’s pedigree and health clearances

“Clyde”

Chris Van Eimeren – Clyde’s Owner/trainer/handler – has this to say about his boy. “Clyde was totally amateur trained and handled. He competed on a circuit shared with Lardy, Smith and Sletten. Despite this he ended up with an Open 2nd,3rd and 4th, a Specialty Am win and an Am 4th. He was an all breed win shy of earning his AFC. In addition to being a high level FT competitor Clyde was a fantastic hunting dog and all around companion. He was a moderate male, with a lovely head and temperament. “

“Chili”

Chili is one of my favorite girls. She was ready to run Master last spring but the test and trial schedules were put on hold as a result of the pandemic. We did manage to run two master tests in the fall before she came in season. She passed both easily. I expect her to finish her title quickly this coming season. Her pedigree compliments Clyde’s very well, she is athletic, beautiful and very biddable.  Chili is currently training at the Master/Qual level and following her master title we plan to begin to run Qualifying stakes.

Fall 2021 – Ike X Denali

Heads Up Kennels News, New Litters

Denali X Ike

We are delighted to announce the upcoming breeding of “Denali” Heads Up Leading Edge Denali MH WCX to Lynn and Tom Lanes homebred “Ike” FC Thistle Rock Red Ike QA2 MH

The breeding is planned for late summer 2021.

Ike X Denali’s pedigree and health clearances

“Ike”

Lynn and Tom have this to say about Ike. "We and all our professionals have never cherry picked the trials we run. We proudly run an extremely challenging Minnesota/Georgia circuit. It is not unusual to see entries exceeding 70-90 dogs in some form of the Open (Limited, Special, restricted) with several NFC, NAFC, FC/AFC competitors from some of the most talented and high profile professional trainers such as Steve Yozamp, Lynn Troy, Dave Rorem, Danny Farmer and Mike Lardy to name a few.

Under Tim Springer’s guidance Ike finished his Derby career with a spot on the Derby list at 22 months. Within a year he was QAA and has his MH title. Running under Steve Yozamp, Ike had a 25% completion rate in the Open together with his win late in late 2017 to finish his FC!

Ike was a sensible, people-oriented dog and a very handsome boy. He was a joy to train & have at home. Ike had a rich dark coat with the right amount of feathering. He was a great Field Trial Golden and also our buddy. He was such a personable dog that pro trainer, Steve Yozamp, often brought him inside as his housedog. Ike got along with other dogs which is important when airing with 15 or more other males while traveling on a pro Dog truck".

“Denali”

Denali is a lovely up young bitch who earned her Master Hunter title with ease. Her pedigree compliments Ike’s very well, she is athletic, beautiful and very biddable.

Denali is currently competing for her Grand Master Hunter title. In her spare time Denali is an outstanding waterfowl and upland dog.

Puppies available to experienced active pet homes, hunting or competitive working homes ONLY. Puppies are priced at $3000, a $500 deposit is required to reserve a puppy.

Puppies will be whelped by Denali’s owner Helen Laursen and come to Heads Up Kennels at 3 weeks for the final 4 weeks of socialization and assessment. Puppies will undergo extensive testing and will be matched to the criteria of their new owners by us.

Deposits are non-refundable unless we do not have a puppy for you in the litter.

Pedigree and clearance information ( https://www.k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=1103865 )

“Boomer”

Janice Gunn has this to say about Boomer. “Boomer was 75lbs and 24″ high. Not only was he a very competitive field dog, he was also a very competitive obedience dog. It is not often that one sees a dog working in two separate activities at such an incredibly high standard. He was extremely fast in the field and excelled in the water.
Boomer’s offspring are highly sought after throughout Canada and the United States. He throws very talented dogs which include Master Hunters, successful Field trial dogs, and Multi High In Trial obedience dogs.”

Boomer lived to 15 and was healthy to the end of his life. There is very little Boomer semen left and this will be one of his final litters

“Hustle”

Hustle is the granddaughter of my foundation bitch Diva and is a Trek daughter. Her mother is one of my all time favorite bitches – Delta.  Hustle is fast, intense, an excellent marker and her absolute favorite mark is the long retired bird over the water. She also has a great smile.  There is excellent longevity in this pedigree. Hustle’s dam is still alive and active at 11, her maternal grand dam reached the ripe old age of 16, her sire is now 13, her sires dam lived to be 13 ½. Hustle weighs 65 lbs and is 22" high. She has never met anyone she didn't like. In her spare time she is an outstanding upland dog.

Following this litter Hustle will continue to run field trials.
