Trader has 1CC and 2RCCs plus many BOBs at open shows.He is a lovely boy to live with, always smiling and never happier than when running through the nearby Kyle Forrest or along Ayr beach.

Although not used extensively at stud, he has produced quality offspring including several Championship show Best Puppy winners.4 of his daughters have already won RCCs and from 2005-2007, the junior bitch class at Crufts was won by a Trader daughter.His son,Blacktoft Stray Cat Strut with Ghilgrange won RCC and Reserve Best In Show at the Flatcoated Retriever Society show 2008 and currently has 2CCs .

Trader made his first show appearance of 2007 at NEFRA breed club open show where he won veteran dog and best veteran in show.In 2008, he won veteran dog at FRCof Scotland championship show but sister Summer beat him to the top award.He took his revenge a few weeks later by winning Best In Show at Tay Valley Gundog Club.He won best veteran in show at FRC of Scotland breed shows October 2008(open) and April 2009(championship.

His offspring have not only had success in the showring but have proved their worth as working gundogs and several have obtained awards in this field.
