Wow, me too. Never thought I would see someone say that on here. Mine is 11 months now, it's been pretty fun training her, very interesting personality. She has no problem with gunfire, very steady, has picked up live and dead birds...including dead teal, gadwall, doves, starlings, mockingbirds. Her first "real" hunt will be the dove opener, she is going to have a blast.
About Hickory Creek- good people, they breed well tempered dogs. However...I paid $550 for mine, I think she has increased the price to $750 or $850...which is kinda ridiculous for a dog coming from 2 parents who have no hunt test certifications or field trials.
For that price I would have gone to a competitive minded breeder with hunt test certifications on both parents at the minimum, or gone over the $1000 mark to get one with field trial parents.
But, apparently she has the demand from customers and if she wants to charge that much, more power to her. If it was me and I had to do it again I would get one with something other than health certifications.
