Flint is a strong, loyal dog with excellent drive and lovely nature,
with the looks and proportions of his sire Bob.
Winning out of Novice tests in his very first run (March 2015); on his 3rd run won his first Open test.
In his first Novice trial at Lincs. Gundogs 2015, he produced a stunning performance including an eyewipe; and was placed 2nd and Guns Choice.
He gave a great performance representing England at the CLA Game Fair in July 2016 where he was top scoring England Retriever, helping England win the Team title.
In October 2016 he won the Northumberland and Durham LRC Two Day Open Trial with a superb run over the two days.
This qualified Flint for the 2016 I.G.L.
where he worked tirelessly; and despite reaching the final 10 dogs (from 54), unfortunately he did not feature in the awards. I was very proud of him!
Flint started 2017 exceptionally well achieving selection to every
England Team in 2017. He was also top scoring dog of the selection event and top scoring England Retriever at the Skinner's World Cup in May 2017 and also at the Scottish Game Fair International which England won overall.
Flint was also selected by the Kennel Club, as the one 'England' retriever to represent Team GB at the International Retriever event, Chatsworth House June 2017.
In his first trial of the 2017 season, Flint made me very proud as he won the Kennel Club Open Retriever Trial at Bolton Abbey making Flint, like his father, a
FIELD TRIAL CHAMPION
and qualified Flint for the 2017 IGL where he worked tirelessly over the three days but did not feature in the final awards.
2018 has started well for Flint, having achieved selection to the England Retriever Team once again and I was honoured to represent England at the Skinner's World Cup where Flint was Top Scoring England Retriever.
He was also top scoring dog of day one of the England Team performance at the Game Fair 2018 which saw England triumph as overall winners.
