Ted, We took Diva out about 6 times last year and she really did a great job for being so young. She is going to be a great duck dog and is already a great family dog. Thanks for a great dog and i have been referring you to other guys at the club.


These were taken at the Jr. Hunt at Grizzly Island. It was the first time I had seen Jetta in action, she is just as fanatical as my boys. She was awesome to watch. Six great retrieves. Please feel free to use or just enjoy these pictures

Girly first trip hunting ...She did well ..Very birdy and great retrives.... I am looking forward to take her duck hunting... I am very happy with her.. she has surprised me as to her aggressive hunting style on pheasants .... as she is mild mannered at home.

Ted, I hope this letter finds you and your family happy and healthy. Attached you will find some photos of Mantle\'s 2009-2010 season opener and his first hunt. Overall, Mantle retrieved 6 of 7 birds. The last was a mature snow and the boy was just not prepared for a bird of that size. He has since retrieved several geese with no problems. His aggressiveness in the field is exciting to watch, yet he has learned to honor others retrieve. His mild temperament makes him a pleasure to enjoy at all times. Looking back on the decision I made to spend the money to purchase a started dog, I can honestly appreciate my purchase. After speaking with others who have spent money to raise and train their dogs from a pup, I have saved money. Buying him at 9 months old, I did not miss out on the early stages of my dog\'s life. My family, specifically my son, think the world of Mantle. Good job.\r\n


Here is a picture of Gunny right before he got on the plane to travel home with me. He's a great dog!! Ted, Gunny is doing great!! I really appreciate your willingness to find me such an exceptional dog!! I've hunted him several times and he just doesn't miss a bird. Thanks Again!!

Ted, Just wanted to tell you how incredibly happy I am with Grace. She is by far the best dog I have ever had.I couldn't ask for a better friend or companion at home or in the field. In the short time I have had her we have formed a very strong bond with each other. She is so loving and friendly, she gets along with the other dogs at my club great and the other members think she is a special dog. It is pretty amazing how well she did out in the blind with me, by the end of the season she was performing like she had been hunting for several years already. She learned and picked up on things very quickly. My hunting partner and other members I hunted with were amazed at how well she handled herself and followed instructions. That is one of the things I really like about Grace is how well she minds me. I am sorry we didn't get a chance to hook up before the end of the season I really would like to do that next year. We will have to stay in touch and if you ever need a good reference don't hesitate to call me. I have already told several people where I got my dog from.

Hi Ted, I just wanted to let you know what a great dog Grace has turned out to be. I could not have received a better dog if I tried. I have had a lot of dogs in my life but none has compared to Grace. She is the most loving and intelligent dog I have seen, I swear she understands English! She has really come on as far as Duck hunting goes. She seems to have a knack for finding the lost birds. My fellow club members have been impressed with how well she does and how well she follows commands. My hunting partners dog gets along great with Grace and they will lay side by side at the blind together which is usually not the case with most dogs. She has become an integral part of our family who everyone loves very much. I have included some pictures of Grace for you to enjoy. Thanks again Ted for putting us together. Sincerely Chris Wright


Hi Ted, I was out yesterday with Jas' again. If I just let her do her thing, she knows what to do and we seem to be gaining great trust in each other. I couldn't ask for a better match of her abilities and my type of upland hunting. Thanks for finding me such a wonderful dog.

Ted, I thought I'd drop you an email to let you know how things are going.\r\n\r\nJas was perfect after we kenneled her and headed up to Chico. In Chico , we stopped in at a goochi pet store to get a collar and lead. Jas was a perfect girl in the store with the other dogs. So, when we got to the truck, I asked my wife if she wanted to try to see how Jas would d o up in the cab. She got in and sat at my command and layed down when I started to drive and stayed there until we stopped. Needless to say she got to ride up in the cab on the way back to L.A.. Never made a fu ss or acted up at all. Sorry. She\'s getting spoiled. She looked like the picture for almost all of the 4 50 miles home.\r\n\r\nI took her to the park yesterday to work her and between retrieves she bolted towar d a soccer ball that a kid kicked about 60-70 yrds away.\r\n\r\nWhen I called her name and \"here\", she made a slide stop and headed straight back and heeled. I was duly impressed. I think this is gonna work o ut. Lynn is very pleased with Jas\' manners in the house and in public places. Thanks much for your exper tise in finding a match for Lynn and I.


Hi Ted This is Cole Sorrell, both Rolling Rock Ruthie <93>Ruth<94> and I have been having a blast together, whether it has been out in the field hunting or in my backyard training. She is such an affectionate dog and my family loves her. She is really coming along in her training and I am going to enter Ruth in the next Hunt Test in California. Both your wife and you were great to deal with when finding my dog and I would and have been recommending people towards you direction ever since I had the pleasant encounter with you two. Ruth did great on our first hunt and retrieved all 26 birds shot. Thanks for a great experience and I will be looking your way in the future w hen I need another great quality dog.


Ted, Thanks for finding me such a wonderful dog. Java is a pleasure to hunt over and gets along great with my family. I also appreciate your following up to e nsure that things are going well. Again, Thanks for taking the guess work out of finding a dog!

Ida Roberts

Hey Ted....thanks for 11 years of my Creole. Today is her 11th birthday and she is doing great, headed to her 7th Master National next month !!! I am so proud of her. \r\nThanks again,\r\nIda\r\n


HI Ted: The waterfowl season has come t o an end. We had a great season at our club. Hammer, the yellow lab you located for me was wonderful. He had all the qualities you told me he had and more. He retrieved 489 ducks and 7 geese during this pas t season. He has one of the best personalities of any lab I have ever been around. He is a great dog an d an even greater pal. I am also impressed with how he handles himself with hunting pheasants. So far h e has flushed and retrieved 16 wild pheasants and 58 planters. We are going to the pheasant club once mo re this season. Thanks again for finding me such a nice dog!!!


Hi Ted I hope you had a good opener. Here is Beau with a nice hen Mallard. He did his job and brought in two nice limits today. Mallards, sprig and widgeon were flying all about. He has become a great duck dog and companion. Thanks for picking him out.

John and Larry Toboni

Here's a little report from the Toboni family. Shooting the coon ranch. Lysia is now two years old an has turned out to be a great hunter and retriever. Her blind etiquette could use a little work, but she never gives up . You can always use us for a reference if u need to, it would be our pleasure. Hope all is well with you. Larry and John Toboni

Bailey is a really great dog in the blind and has been doing exceptionally well with over 150 retrieves so far this year. Heís doing such an amazing job that Itís hard to believe it is only his first hunting season! Bailey also immediately fit in well at our home and is now just one of the gang. Thanks so very much for finding Bailey for us; we couldnít be happier with him!
