Berlin joined us shortly after our return from a year in Germany - hence his name.  

We are so happy that Jeannie Swanson decided to travel to Canada in the winter and breed Jeter's sister Addie and produce a wonderful litter of puppies.  Addie is a strong hunting dog who is active in competitive obedience and field events - having earned her CD, RA JH and CCA.  Berlin's sire is Morningstar Bold Explorer CDX, MH, WCX - a very talented handsome guy who lives in Canada.  We have loved the program at Morningstar and have the pleasure of knowing several of the dogs on Max's pedigree including his sire - Baron, his grandmother Breeze and also grandfather Ranger.  Berlin's pedigree combines strong working lines with show dogs that have titles behind their names.  

Berlin is currently in training for competitive obedience and field events.  We have had him out pheasant hunting a few times and he is a hard worker.  He is wonderfully patient in the duck blind.  Around the house he is very easy and has appropriate energy.  And we love how well he plays with young dogs.

August 2022 - Berlin earns Master Pass numer 3.  He ran a great test and was very easy to work with - love going to the line with him.  

August 2021 -  Berlin earns back to back Master Hunter passes.   Berlin earned his Senior Hunter title at 25 months of age.  He is a very talented, biddable guy and he is very honest in the water.  Look for Berlin to take a break from hunt tests to go real hunting.  

Berlin's OFA results are Excellent on Hips and Normal on Elbows.  His eye clearance is done (all clear) and we are working on scheduling a heart clearance.  DNA test results have been added to his K9data listing.  He is a very handsome dog with good pigment, correct moderate coat, good bone, full dentition, moderate angulation, good tailset and great feet.  He is 65 pounds when in top condition and measures 23 inches at the shoulder.
