I have been trying to find a stud dog for several years that was either not related to my Boycie, FTCH Birdsgreen Sweet Reward of Castlemans, and have his temperament & trainability.
As you know our working Golden lines are very close and the same dogs are being used time and time again to such a point your gene pool is very small.
I was very fortunate to have Béatrice Loetscher, Xavier Gosse & Frédérique Glory come on my dog holidays with their wonderful Goldens. You can't train for temperament you can only breed good temperament and these dogs had all the qualities I liked. Excellent temperaments, good straight line work, marking ability, biddability, good looks and good health test, hips, elbows, current clear eyes, a lot of which is seriously lacking in working Goldens.
With all of this in mind I put Bina who also has the above qualities to "Sun" Xavier's dog, which has produced Jai.
I am very pleased with this litter and with correct handling & training we have something very special & something new to offer the Golden Gene pool.
Jai's litter mates are also doing well with achievements in Trials and Working Tests.
