By nature Betty is calm and loyal. She earns her keep competing in show, obedience, tracking and field events. From puppyhood she was precocious on birdwork being a strong natural backer and naturally standing staunch through the flush of the bird by 7 months of age, putting her squarely in the ‘born broke’ category. Betty quickly earned her field trial Puppy points and also earned a perfect score on her NAVHDA Natural Ability test. Impressively she earned the six legs required for a Master Hunter title in 3 weekends at three different test sites with the tests run on three different species of birds, bobwhite quail, pheasants and chukar. Not bad looking, Betty earned her AKC Show Championship with 4 majors as a yearling and later her Field Championship to become an AKC Dual Champion.
