In early January I put Cody in the capable hands of professional trainer/handler Sheldon Twer of Oakdale, California. Over the last year and half I have worked hard to develop Cody as a field trial prospect and wanted him to have a good chance to be successful.
Sheldon called me yesterday to tell me that, in his first real trial, Cody won the open derby stake at the Oregon Shooting Dog Championship with a great ground race and a chukar find.
Next stake that Cody will run is the National Chukar Championship Derby Classic on March 26th.
I am pleased - bloodlines and the hard work is starting to payoff.
