Zoe is wearing a Tri-Tronics Sport 65 BPR collar. We're never off lead without it! BPR stands for beeper and that is optional when hunting your dog.Just wondering, what's the reason for two collars?
Thank you Cathy! In the last pic she would normally have a lot more hair coming off the tail and you can tell she was clipped. When she’s hunting burrs can be a big problem and they stick in the hair in one big clump. She'll get them all over but the tail for some reason is difficult to get them out.
Wow! Her bloodline is great! Thanks for the website. I quickly looked at the web site. These are some beautiful dogs. Does yours point when you catch something hunting? Was she hard to train?Zoe is a Llewellin Setter (English Field Type). For some very good info about the breed, here is one of the best sites:
The Llewellin Setter Page
If you take a peek at the brief history, you will see two dogs, Count Nobel and Count Gladstone IV...same bloodlines running through my dog (dams side). There is also another really strong line in my Zoe from the sires side. There was a tv show called "Hunting With Hank" on the OLN network. Hank was an uncle for Hanks father, Irish King Bondhu Ashly is my Zoe's grandsire!
We all learn in retrospect. But at least you have a wonderful, beautiful animal.If I would have known all this prior on how strong my girl really is, I would have never had her fixed and could be cleaning up on pups (1000-1200 a pup easy).
Wow again! That's some luck you have there!!!! :biggrin:I got her on a phone call when normally there is a waiting list. Just so happened, last one, mostly black when most are looking for the lighter colors like Orange Belton or mostly white and a little black or orange, chestnut, etc.

Yes, she points and holds birds very well! No, not very hard to train, but they need plenty of work in the first year with maximum expoure to live birds.
Take a peek here if you want to see her doing her thing...she loves to hunt.

PS: the beeping you hear in the videos is coming off her collar that LabbieMamma had asked about. I have it set up for a "double beep" in tracking mode and "single beep" in point mode.
