Great picture of May for your customers. She is a super pup. Just a natural hunter. She loves it. Hope all is well.
Thanks so much! What a great dog. Your work is much appreciated. She and I will be having the time of our lives. Watch out “Birds”, here she comes.
Hope all is well with you, I wanted to let you know how Ellie and I are making out.
I wanted to update you on Ellie Mae until she had her first stubborn session, which occurred last evening, more than two weeks after I picked her up from Valhalla. We overcame that stubborn session quickly and without stress, got right back to training. What a pleasant change!
Ellie has been dong very well, we are working for a bit each day and I see steady progress. My wife and I have both commented that Ellie is now a pleasure to be around and everyone is much happier.
Thanks again for working with Ellie and with me
I can’t express how happy I am with Bullet and everything you guys have done. You have truly made my first short hair hunting dog an unforgettable experience. Bullet has performed well in the field and is getting better every time we go out. Thank you for having the patience to work with him and with me!! I couldn’t have asked for a better companion and would recommend anyone who wants a hunting dog see Russ and Jeff. Their knowledge and talents are remarkable. The picture is of bullet’s first bird of the season and many more to come! Also thanks to Stephanie for all her hard work taking care of Bullet during training and working with me!
Thank you very much for all that you did to train Jenna and helping us understand the training. I am sorry we have not had the chance to get by but once the hunting season begins, I am gone every weekend. Jenna did a fantastic job with her 1st year! We took two different trips to South Dakota and she was really doing a great job. She also pointed a few here in Colorado. She pointed multiple birds in South Dakota and we shot quite a few over her with great retrieves. I am very happy with how she works and feel with a little time she will be top notch.
Maybe we’ll see you soon and I’ll tell you all about my Bull and Whitetail. Until then, thanks again for a great job!
Just thought I’d drop you a couple of jpegs on Champ to show how your handy-work has paid off. You’ll recall that I joined the Bluff’s a couple of weeks ago. This crazy dog can stand still, at least for a few seconds.
You might recognize the pointer Faith, Logan’s dog, who went out with us last weekend. Faith did great. Champ honored Faith’s points multiple times. One of these times, we thought he was honoring her point, when in fact they were pointing at 2 separate birds just 15 feet apart.
Thanks Valhalla! Dixie learned from Faith for a few hours, then found and retrieved these two birds on her own. Thanks for treating us so well.
Jim Vanek, an avid wing shooter and lover of German Shorthairs highlights his hunting season in his regular column for the Greeley Tribune. Jim shares the ups and downs of the 2004-2005 wild bird hunting across the West, with the only real down being the fact that it’s over.
My name is Buck and my dad accidentally fed me too much Dog Chow this summer. One day he looked at me and realized that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with him during hunting season. So Dad sent me to Doggie Fat Camp at Valhalla.
Through a high protein diet and lots of daily exercise I hope to drop 20# over the next month. You can track my progress on a weekly basis. Wish me luck!!!
8/7/04 ~ 84#
8/17/04 ~ 83# but looking leaner!
