Rock is a strong, fox red shade of yellow dog. He is a true gentleman, both in and out of the kennel and a lovely dog to live with. Although Rock's Optigen result is that of a carrier, because of his many desirable traits he is available at limited stud but only to bitches who are Optigen tested clear/normal.

Rock has now completed his first season in Field Trials 2009/2010 and has had four extremely good runs and four not so good! He was in the last 3 dogs on 2 occasions but unfortunately all failed and there were no awards - very disappointing - but he has shown the potential to be a very good dog and I am delighted with him.

He has sired his first litter of pups and the new owners are very pleased and hope to be ready to enter a Novice trial this coming season 2010/2011.

The 2010 working test season has seen him qualify out of Novice by winning Three Ridings Labrador Club Cold Game Test at Skipster Hagg, followed by a very reputable 4th at Midland Counties Labrador Retriever Club Open Cold Game Test at Ermine Street Farm. He also came 3rd (and was Best Novice) in the United Retriever Club Intermediate Working Test at Carlton Towers.

Rock has started his 2010/2011 trialling season with a Certificate of Merit in Barton on Humber Gundog Club's novice trial at South Ferriby and is really starting to show his true potential.

Update: 29th November 2010 Rock was FIRST in the DOVE VALLEY NOVICE FIELD TRIAL for A/V Retriever at Donisford and also won the Hawkslow Cup for the Best Yellow Labrador.

2012 has seen Rock's son Moss become a Novice Field Trial Winner.
