Gunner and Flyers pedigree and health clearances

“Gunner”

Erick Pfeiffer and Gerry Clinchy have very kindly agreed to the breeding of Gunner to our Flyer. Gunner was pick male out of a litter with 7 males. As a puppy Gunner was fearless and birdy. He was an excellent water dog and a team player. Gunner achieved *** status in the field and has an all breed Amateur second. He was also talented in the obedience ring with a UDX2 designation and 15 OTCH points. In his spare time he was a therapy dog, hunting dog and family companion. Gunner has good front and rear angulation, correct bite, as well as good bone/substance with good clean movement coming and going. Gunner is 11 years old and still going strong.

“Flyer”

Flyer is a hard going, watery girl, with a great training attitude and one speed – FAST! She finished her Senior Hunter title easily and then whelped a beautiful litter of 8 puppies from her breeding to Emberain Better Believe It *** in early spring 2020. Flyer ran her first master last fall after finishing her duties in the whelping box and got her first master ribbon. We plan to finish her title this summer before the breeding this coming fall. Flyer is structurally correct with a quick drying, low maintenance field coat. She is also an excellent hunting dog and companion.

Puppies available to experienced, active companion homes, hunting and working homes. This litter will have true multipurpose potential. Puppies are priced at $3200, a $500 deposit is required to reserve a puppy.

Puppies will be whelped and raised at Heads Up Kennels, 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.

The reservation list for this litter is full. If you would like to go on a waiting list please contact Anne.

Fall 2021 – Clyde X Chili

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.

Puppies available to working homes only, there are no pet home reservations available for this litter. Puppies are priced at $3200, a $500 deposit is required to reserve a puppy.

Puppies will be whelped and raised at Heads Up Kennels, 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.

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.
