|Description of Bart by Glenda Brown - Bart's
Owner, Trainer, and mom.
|Bart is dark gold with dark eyes and dark pigment.|
is very watery, stylish, athletic, and intelligent. He runs and trains with great enthusiasm. He is a
strong marking dog and can do the big punch birds, on both land and water.
He has a great temperament and a marvelous and endearing personality. He
is a house and motel dog. I owned his granddam, his sire, and have other
dogs in the household related to him.

has a very upbeat, happy attitude at all times-training, trialing, at home and
on the road. He definitely has a personality! When you look into his eyes,
something looks back-with a sparkle and intelligence.
has an excellent temperament and loves persons, dogs, and anything fuzzy I will
let him near. Great with grandchildren! He lives at home (in the house and yard
as we have no kennels) with five to six other intact males. When on the road, he
shares a motel room with me and usually two other male dogs.
has a very positive training attitude, if he can understand what you are trying
to teach him, he tries very hard to do it. He works extremely well with positive
motivation, and your voice alone can be used to jazz him up, caIm him down,
and/or correct him. He repeats well and enjoys drills.
is very athletic, jumps obstacles readily, and comes .from a long line of very
trainable competitive dogs. He is truly an amateur's dog. His sire, with limited
breedings, produced many multi-titled performance dogs. Bart has always had
excellent eye contact-particularly when you are reading and he wants some
attention, when he is in the holding blind and feels he should be on the line,
and when he wants to play.
is a basically a non-barker, is not crate protective---in fact, he
embarrassingly solicits petting if you come near his crate. He has been known to
steal but he does not destroy. My shoes are a favorite item and he will bring
them to me or put them in his bed. Also, he has been known to steal a puppy toy
and hold it for ransom until someone or some pup will play with him. He really
loves having his tummy scratched.
feel that Bart would be a joy to work in any area of performance. He truly wants
to please and he is eager to participate in whatever game is going on. He zips
through agility jumps set up at home, enjoys working on heeling and recalls, has
a tremendous desire to retrieve, and is always a pleasure to have around.
recently in Texas, I had persons who were much more conversant with good
conformation go over Bart for me. The
consensus was that he is moderate in every way, strong top line, very well
balanced, good angulation in the rear, good length of neck, moderate coat,
correct ear set and correct length of ear, good length of loin, lovely
expression, well blended face, bone is balanced for his size, not too leggy,
good movement. He comes from a background of bigger boned dogs and his brother
is a larger dog than he is. He enjoyed every minute of these examinations as it
meant someone was giving him a lot of attention.
following is Bart's trial record.
Entered 16 derbies
and completed 12 of them with a third, three fourths, two Reserve Jams and
In the Qual, he had a
First, two thirds, two fourths, a Reserve Jam, and two Jams. This was
while he was two years of age.
Again, while only
two, he earned an Amateur third in his second Amateur. There were 55 dogs
running, only four dogs did the last series without handling, and he had
the best job in the last series. First and second went to two FC/AFCs (one
of them my Lab) and 4th place went to another FC/AFC. The three Labs
placing had all qualified and competed in numerous Nationals and included
two National Finalists. During this time frame, also he earned an Open Jam
in a field of 63.
As a three year old,
he had two Open Jams, an Amateur First, two Amateur fourths, and two
Amateur Jams. In addition, he got into the last series of additional Opens
and Amateurs, but due to youth handled or had a big hunt on the last bird.
(Naturally, we won't blame the handler!)
since has won an Open First in a field of 90 dogs, including two National
Open winners, many National Finalists, and many finished dogs. There were
a number of top pros running their dogs, while he was run by a greyhaired
lady wearing tennis shoes. In addition, since then he has had two Amateur
Seconds, two Amateur Thirds, Open and Amateur Jams, and completed both his
FC and AFC with another Open First. Again, this win was over a NFC, the
three time Purina High Point Open Dog, National Finalists, and other
titled dogs. In both Open wins and his Amateur win, his strength was in
his waterblind and his last series. All his points have been from All
Breed trials while handled by me. He qualified for the 2002 National
Amateur Retriever Club Championship trial.
received 'the Dick Sampson Memorial Trophy from the Golden Retriever Club
of America for the best combined performance prior to his third birthday
in.AKC licensed field trials. He won the Gilnockie Challenge Cup from the
GRCA for the highest scoring Field Trial record during the year
2000. He won The Torch Flinn - Tigathoe
for the highest number of All Age points in licensed field trials while
being Amateur handled by its GRCA member-owner. Bart is a member of the
GRCA Field Dog Hall of
