Both Tonic and Tonic are very high drive dogs that are best suited in the hands of an experienced handler and avid hunter. The talent potential is very high from this breeding, but they also will need to be in homes capable of handling this type of dog. We expect great wild bird dogs with strong water abilities. These puppies should also make excellent NAVHDA, VHDF, and AKC horseback field trial prospects.

Tonic is the latest up-and-coming star of long-time breeders Ray and Lynn Calkins of Sherwood, Oregon. Tonic started his field trial career off with several wins and placements in puppy and derby stakes in all-breed competition, then won both the GWPCA 2015 Nationals Derby and Futurity at 17 months old. He started running broke stakes last fall. He also has 4 points towards his bench CH and is well on his way to becoming a Dual Champion.

I have spent time around Tonic and he has a very friendly, affectionate temperament around the house. Tonic has a strong love for water. He is also a very good wild bird dog, and Ray has always been an avid wild bird hunter that has put a strong emphasis on breeding dogs that are great wild bird dogs.

Tonic has all the recommended health tests for the breed and is CHIC certified. He is very talented young male from an impressive pedigree of the breed's top producers and performers, and we expect great results from this cross with Tater.

Tater is hard-nosed dog with no quit in her. Her desire for game is off the charts and she is as tough as they come. Her field search is both aggressive and relentless and she will cover as much ground as you will let her. Finding birds is her top priority. Tater retrieved several ducks in her first two hunting seasons. She is a very strong water dog that is impervious to harsh weather. When training for the duck search, you simply take Tater to a lake or marsh and just let her go. She will shred a marsh for a duck and she will not come back without it. Like her dam and grand-dam, Tater is a very strong waterfowl dog and was born with a '4' duck search. Tater's back right knee has been blown out twice due to injury, and surgically repaired, yet she refuses to let that slow her down on the chukar hills. She has that extra level of toughness and grit that excels when the conditions get tough - she just won't let you down.

Tater has an outstanding nose and a very intense point. She can take heavy training pressure at an early age and she is the type of dog that is best suited for an experienced handler due to her level of desire, independence, and toughness.

Tater scored a maximum 112 in her NAVHDA natural ability test. In fact, all 7 puppies in her litter were tested and all received prize Is with an average score over 110 pts. Tater also ran in the VHDF Advanced Hunting Aptitude (AHAE) where she performed very well in the ability subjects, where she scored 10s in Field Search, Pointing, Blind Water Entry, Search Behind Duck, and Nose. Tater also scored a 186/II in the NAVHDA utility test, only missing a prize I due to steadiness in the field.

Like most of our dogs, even though Tater is a high powered hunting dog, she is still a very calm, affectionate dog around the house. She is a very affectionate companion and is great with our children and other dogs. Tater's three previous litters have all earned NAVHDA Breeder Awards with 18 puppies averaging 106 points. Three of her offspring have also passed the utility test with two prize Is and a prize II. One male received a UT prize I at 18 months old.

Both dogs are very fluid moving, fast, animated dogs in the field and work at a medium range. They have strong pointing instincts and are stylish on point. Both dogs have strong water ability and are proven waterfowl retrievers, too. These puppies should also make great NAVHDA, VHDF, and AKC horseback field trial prospects.

Cecil has been a natural bird dog from the very early on, finding and handling chukar and huns at 4-5 months old. His nose is as good as there is, as anyone who hunts or trains over the dog can attest. He is a medium range dog in the field, is an excellent bird finder, and had impeccable manners on wild game. He is also a very well-rounded versatile dog, having swam across the Snake River in December to retrieve a winged duck. Cecil has a very friendly temperament and gets along great with other dogs.

Cecil is owned by Ben Oakleaf of Kuna, Idaho. Ben tested Cecil in the VHDF Advanced Hunting Aptitude test at 21 months were he scored a very impressive 171 points with maximum 10s in Field Search, Steadiness, Nose, Blind Water Entry, Desire, and Search Behind the Duck. Cecil is a very talented young male that is strong in all areas, with an exceptional nose and natural bird finding and handling abilities. He is also from a very successful breeding between Sarge and Tater that has produced several outstanding dogs, including two NAVHDA Breeder's Award litters. Two of Cecil's littermates have also received prize Is in the NAVHDA Utility test.

Harley is one of our young, upcoming females that is proving to be a very special dog. She is virtually a clone of her dam, Allie, who was one of our favorite all-time wirehairs - as both an amazing hunting dog and family companion. I finished the 2015/2016 hunting season shooting my limit of chukars over Harley.

Harley is one of those big motor dogs. Whether it is in the field or water, she has an extra gear that most dogs just don't have. She simply wants to find birds a little more and is willing to run a little farther, or dig a little deeper to produce them.

As high-powered as Harley is as a hunting dog, you would never know it around the house. Her dam was the same way. She is a great family dog and a real sweetheart with the family and around the house.

Harley is out of one of our most successful breedings out of Luke and Allie. This cross really combined to bring out the best of both parents in their offspring. Luke is owned by Jeff Funke of Three Devils kennel and he has produced several very talented puppies for us.

Six of Harley's previous puppies have been NAVHDA Natural Ability tested, scoring an average of 104.5 points. One son also received a utility prize I at 2.8 years old.

Max is one of the most talented dogs that we have produced. His desire for game on land and water is unparalleled. Max combines the best of his very talented parents, Luke (Lager v den drei Teufeln) and Allie (McNally's Super Allie). He is a turbo-charged field dog with breathtaking style and intensity, and he is a water-pounding duck retrieving machine in the duck blind. Max was hammering the water to retrieve ducks in 10F icy weather when he was 8 months old.

Max ran the VHDF advanced hunting aptitude evaluation (AHAE) last May at the very young age of 15 months old. He had hunted ducks the winter before and had only seen one live duck in training before the test. As a testament to Max's innate water desire, his AHAE duck search ended at 20 minutes with Max over 200 yards away buried in a cattail marsh. He received maximum scores of  '10' in Field Search, Nose, Blind Water Entry and Search Behind the Duck. He received an impressive '11' in overall Desire, which includes an extra point for showing a remarkable level of desire throughout the test. Max also earned a maximum '4' in the NAVHDA utility duck search at 19 months of age. He performed prize I level work in all areas of the utility test except Steadiness in the Field, which is impressive for such a young age. At 28 months old Max ran in his second utility test and scored a maximum 204/I. At a very early age on land and water, Max continues to prove that he just no quit in him.

I have hunted over Max several times and he is a very nice wild bird dog that anyone would be proud to hunt over. Similar to his dam, Allie, and littermate Harley, Max has a very calm disposition and is a gentleman around the house.

Of the 7 puppies that were tested in Max's last two litters, All 7 received prize Is (6-112s, 1-110). Overall, 24 of his puppies have been tested natural ability average 106.83 points. He has also sired 1 Versatile Champion, 2 prize I utilty dogs, and 3 prize II utiltiy dogs. Four of the 5 utiltiy dogs were under 2 years old, which shows the level of natural talent and early maturity of his puppies.

Max is co-owned and trained by Brett Wood of Logan, Utah.

Ziva is one of the best hunting dogs that we have ever owned. She is a very driven, determined dog that developed very early as both an upland and waterfowl hunting dog. During Ziva's first hunting season, at only 8 to 10 month old, she had one of the of the most productive hunting seasons of any young dog we have ever owned. She would search out independently several hundred yards for chukars and huns and hold point for several minutes until we caught up with her. Ziva also retrieved over 100 ducks and geese during her first hunting season, including several limits on the Columbia River in December in tough winter conditions. During the 2015 duck opener, Ziva was the lone dog in the duck blind and retrieved 40 ducks by herself, hammering the water on every retrieve. Ziva is equally impressive on upland and waterfowl, and she performs both at a very high level. She is also one of the most durable hunting dogs we have owned. You can hunt her on chukars on multiple days in a row and she never gets sore feet or breaks down, which is a rare trait in our steep, rocky country. She has earned the nickname "The Beast" for a reason - you just can't break this dog down.

Ziva has a very confident temperament and takes heavy training pressure in stride. She does great with other dogs and our three young children. For such a hard charging hunting dog, Ziva also does a great job of coming into the house and calmly laying on her bed. She is truly the total package dog. He coat is dense and harsh.

Ziva is from a very successful breeding where all 7 puppies were NAVHDA natural ability tested and all 7 received prize Is with an average score over 110 points. Ziva scored a 108/I in the NAVHDA natural ability test and 182/II in the NAVHDA utility test as a 3 year old, only missing a prize I due to steadiness in the field. Ziva is a very high drive dog that hunts the field with a very aggressive search, and her duck search and water work show the same level of incredible desire. She is one of those dogs that is an "automatic 4" in the duck search and she takes a flying leap into the water on the send.

Ziva's previous two litters have received NAVHDA Natural Abiltiy Awards with 14 puppies scoring an average of 104.5 points. To date, four of her offspring have passed the UT test with one prize I and two prize IIs, all testing from 1.5 and 2.6 years old. One of her sons also passed the NAVHDA invitational with a maximum 200 points at the tender age of 2.6 years old.
