Hunting Dog Speciality + 2 x CACIB Shows In MOLETAI

I am less active with blog for the last months as our 12 puppies needed lots of time.

Anyway, wanted to share our results with pictures from one of the biggest shows in our country. It is my favourite shows as it takes 3 days. One day is for Specialities and other 2 – International Shows. The area (MOLETAI) is surrounded by many lakes so it’s a perfect place to stay with friends and dogs for the long weekend and open swimming season [:

Galaxy_1_GA2A4890

This litter out of Callidus Invictum UPE & Halston Cinnamon has been planed more than 2 years ago. Sabi and Invi has exceptional connection from the very first day they met at the day Sabi arrived as a puppy from Hungary to us. It’s so amazing to see two dogs, who have special attitude to each other and now they have a bunch of puppies.. [:

No words to describe the happiness that all puppies are born healthy and with any difficulties. Sabi is tired but feeling very well and strong. First thing she did going outside still being in a birth process – pointing the birds [: She is very attentive mother.
So now about our long long night… Continue reading

My favorite hunting is photography, as well as beloved profession. So I shoot with my camera in the fields as well and dogs do their job helping others.

Duck Hunting

Another time we met that our dogs would live their lives.
I don’t hunt and I will not. It doesn’t match with my viewpoint.

As I breed this amazing breed more than 10 years, I see how work is changing their mentality. So I do everything to keep this unique breed as it is bred primary – extremely intelligent with very stable temperament, strong body and good health. All dogs in our kennel who are used in breeding are working + show dogs.

That’s why my dogs work and are developed from puppy age to recognise different smells and use their nose and skills.

This time Invi (Callidus Invictum UPE) and Hugo (Exito Bueno UPE) with Audrius Sapoka and his friends.
