Stuka has tremendous passion and natural hunting, pointing, and retrieving ability and water love. These assets made him a field prodigy that passed the top level NAVHDA Utility Test at the remarkably young age of 16 months. As just a yearling, Stuka placed 2nd in his division of a large NSTRA stake standing broke on each of the 17 bird finds he had over the weekend and he earned his CKC Field Dog title in a single weekend with a top score of 98/100 and a pair of High in Test awards. In his spare time, he is in training as a Search and Rescue dog specializing in tracking and he has already been sucessfully deployed in the searches of a lost toddler and an elderly man with dementia. By nature a complete lover, he is also a pleasure to live with.
