Huey & Dasher

Multi Ch. Alba Nuadh Gwenny's Working Secret "Huey"

Huey was born early on 22 October 2015 in Zijtaart at Kennel Alba Nuadh. He has 3 brothers and 6 sisters.

He has been living with us since the age of 7,5 weeks. Huey is a very happy and goofy boy and he really enjoys life. Huey is the kind of dog that puts a smile on everyone's face when he enters a room.

As a young dog Huey completed the first three puppy obedience courses with very nice scores. He is a quick learner and he really likes to work with his nose.  Since he likes working with his nose so much, we decided to do some detection work with him. He achieved detection (SIFD) levels 1, 2 and 3

During each search he shows a lot of passion and drive. It doesn't matter if he is searching for a dummy, cold game or the odor we have imprinted on him. He just loves to do all this.
Besides detection work Huey mainly works as a gundog. He loves to work in the field during a practical hunt. He retrieves ducks, pigeons, crows, hares and pheasants without a problem.

Huey is very calm, relaxed and focused during a hunt which makes him a very reliable and a nice dog to work with in the field. During a training he also works very well.

Huey is a very smart dog. He only works if he gets something in return. Luckily for us, we found out which things he likes best. Therefore, we can motivate him if needed. He participated in several competitions and achieved some very nice working certificates (dummies + cold game).

Every now and then, we  enter Huey at a show. He already achieved some very nice results in the show ring, e.g. Best in Show at a Retriever show in Bremen, 3rd Best in Group at an International Dog Show in Dortmund and he was selected as one of the 6 best dogs in breed group 8 of 2018 at the Dog of the Year show on 13 January 2019.
