Garrett is from my first litter, which was out of Boone and Maya and consisted of only two puppies (Garrett and Gavin). Garrett is the youngest member of the Birdsboro crew. Although now in his teenage period, it appears that he’ll be the mellowest as an adult. Like his dad Boone, Garrett is a very loyal boy and prefers to follow me around and be a “velcro dog”.
Garrett the Show Dog
Garrett was only shown one weekend when he was six months old to introduce him to the dog show scene. I had intended to give him time to grow up and into himself before I showed him. But, life (vet school, etc) got in the way… and the next thing I knew, he was a handsome middle-aged dog. I decided that I was fine with not showing him at that point in time as I only intended to use him in our breeding program (and not make him available to others as a stud).
Garrett the Birddog
Garrett has been a bird fanatic since he was a little guy. Garrett has a medium range (like his dad) and is a joy to watch in the field as you can tell that is the place that he most wants to be. Garrett earned his Junior Hunter title easily. At less than two years of age, he showed me that he was naturally steady. He is now steady to wing and shot. His dad, Boone, is best described as steady and reliable in the field. Garrett has a bit more pizzazz and flare. The two of them make a perfect pair. We took our daughter, Killian, out to a hunting preserve when she was just six months old with these two and they made it a fabulous first experience with her. She managed to sleep through a good bit of the action in the backpack with me.
