Suncatcher's Wonder-Worker "Kay-lo"

Kay-lo was born on 16 July 2008 at Kennel Suncatcher's in Froombosch. He has four brothers and four sisters. He weighs 20.5 kg and he is 47 cm tall.

Kay-lo lives with us
since 9 September 2008.
He felt at ease immediately and quickly started to explore the environment.

He is a very friendly and gentle male with a lot of will to please. He loves to work. He is very inquisitive and he is always ready to work, a real work-a-holic.

He may well with other people and animals but work does come first. When he is working he is so focused that he gives no attention to anything around hem.
He was 9 weeks old when we started the puppy course. After he finished the puppy coarse with only excellent results, we started the coarse Social Obedience. He also passed this course with only excellent results.

Kay-lo is a toller that learns easily all different kinds of sports. To see where his passion would be, we did the different sports, like: retrieving with dummies, Flyball, Treibball, Hunting, Tracking and Frisbee. We saw immediately which sport has his preference. It was retrieving dummies or cold game. So we continued these sports.

Since the Winter of 2012 Kay-lo has been invited to several practical hunts. A practicale hunt is his ultimate passion. There is nothing in the world he like more. He works great in de field with hares, ducks, crows, pheasants and pigions.

He also achieves good show results. But if he could choose between a show or a hunting exercise, he would definitiley choose the hunting exercise. His passion is to work and that's why we don't participate on a show very often with him.

In 2012 we first started taking part at a unofficial Tolling workshop and Tolling test. Kay-lo did great during the workshop and the test. There are only official Tolling tests in Denmark and in Sweden. That's why we also enter a few tests there each year.

Because of his great character, good work and good health results we decided to use him for breeding as a Stud dog. Kay-lo was approved by the Dutch Toller Club and the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling retriever association as a stud dog. Unfortunately the eye specialist diagnosed Kay-lo during the annual eye test with Cataract in August 2014. Because of this result, Kay-lo isn't available anymore as a stud dog.

In January 2012, Kay-lo became for the first time father in the Netherlands. His second litter was born at Switzerland in March 2012. All offspring are doing well.
