Heather vom Slaney-Vale

Heather was born May 30, 2013. She is the product of my long range breeding plan to combine outstanding individuals of chosen pedigrees which have been known since puppyhood and which have no evidence of temperament or health defects, plus, have been of talent which does not take a professional to harness. I strongly emphasize a high natural desire to track, and Heather is one of the best that I've had the privilege to work with: in that regard she is out of the same type as her mother Toske vom Oechtringer-Forst and her Dad, Des vom Slaney-Vale. In her first full hunting season Heather performed in a truly admirable fashion: her pointing work on Woodcock, Sharptails and Ruffed Grouse developed extremely quickly: her retrieving has been flawless. She has solidly performed on her water work and is a tireless searcher. Her winter work on Jack Rabbits is wonderful: she loves it and really knows the game. Each of her Hunting seasons have been a true joy. In her VJP test she scored 70 with an 11 in tracking: the senior judge commented,"...this is a very strong tracking dog". In her HZP she scored 185 with an 11 in pointing and 11 in Live Duck Search: everything she did was in a calm manner. Her health has been excellent: she is HD-A: OCD and ED clear: vWD11 free by parentage and DNA: Her breed show in Eau Claire was March 7, 2015: Judges awarded her 10 in Form and 11 in Hair. Heather has a very dense undercoat and much hardness in her outer coat. She is a pleasure to be around. She completed her VGP in Sept 2015 with a Prize 1 310 Score. Her puppies exhibit her goodness to a very high degree. Her full Brother Kris vom Slaney-Vale, owned in South Dakota, is also certified for breeding and is a carbon copy of Heather: an exceptional male in every respect. Her daughter Nora vom Slaney-Vale, is now certified for breeding, and has become part of my Breeding Program: Nora is as good as they come: she is calm, friendly, easy to train, and retains what she learns: he was rated as 11/11 in her form and hair: she was HZP tested twice: 175 points and 182 points: at her VGP in Wisconsin she was awarded 300 Points Prize 1 with a 4H in Use of Nose: she was pointing Woodcock when she was 5 months old: she has had her time in the duck blind: her hunting abilities are not only used in testing,
