H A Z E L....S O L D


Hazel is a 60 lb yellow female. She turned two in November.

Her parents are 4x GMPR BRODY out of 4x GMPR KENAI MH

Hazel's's mother is one of the nicest pointing females we have seen. An untitled dog out of Tiger Mountain lines named Abby.

Hazel is a very clean, very safe dog. She has a strong pointing instinct... and pointed her very first bird.

Hazel is somewhat timid around new people but will warm up nicely and safely to them.

I expect Hazel to be fully started in March, 2019.

OBTAINING A SAUK RIVER "STARTED DOG".





Each year we have some dogs which are taken through a program which produces an obedient, functional bird-dog that anyone would be proud to hunt over.

The term "Started Dog" means different things to different people.


Here's what    "S T A R T E D"   means at  Sauk  River  Retrievers:


Obedience:   Sit,   Place,   Heel,   Here,   Whoa,   "Kennel" .

Collar Conditioning:   Your dog responds positively,   with a conditioned response to e-collar pressure.   Collar conditioning allows you to use this valuable tool the right way.

Birds:   Introduced with the goal of imprinting birds as prey.   Fun to find,   Fun to chase.   Fun to Retrieve

Force Fetch Program completed:   Assures that your dog will handle birds correctly and deliver to hand reliably.

Quartering:   Will be started enough to allow you to develop teamwork in the uplands with a conditioned response to a quartering whistle..

Gun Conditioning:   Including marking off the gun

Steady to shot and Fall When Marking.  

Marking practice:   Single Marks to a distance of 60 yards through decoys.

Gear   Introduced:   Water decoys,   Bigfoot decoys,   Calls,   Boats,   Blinds etc...

We will provide several started dogs available through fall 2020.   Call for availability,   or to choose a dog early and contract for your dog's training.
