That might be a while yet. Now that she is a finished champion, she will continue to be in the ring until she has her Grand Championship.
Last I heard, she was about seventeen points shy from achieving it.

After reaching that milestone, she will go to another trainer to learn to hunt and maybe get into field trialing.

Heck she's got time, She's not even two years old yet.

Beautiful pup! Hope you go far with her!

Seen both sides of abbreviations on the pedigree... sporting people are the nice ones!

Thanks guys for all the complements about my little girl.
But now she has GRAND CHAMPION in front of her name. She came home in February with 52 ribbons, 5 rosettes and a coffee cup as prizes. I'm still trying to figure out how to display them all on a board that I can hang up.

After that show circuit, she was ranked #2 in the country by points. I'm sure that that standing has changed by now and she won't be back in the ring until August when they have the Nationals here locally.

Can hardly wait for that. Just imagine, top German Wirehairs from all over the country. It will be a VERY interesting weekend.

AKC show champion that doesn't hunt....This is why I'd never own a GWP. US breeders have all but ruined the breed. Give me a Drathaar any day.

My setters seldom get out of "the goofies" until 1 1/2-2 years. You have plenty of time to get her hunting.

One of the best chuckar dogs I ever hunted behind was a friend's GWP. Smart Dog!

Most Dogs that turn out to be a decent Gun Dog, the topic of this forum… start as early as possible having them have Bird contacts.

A Kid who is exposed to Russian at birth, picks it up quicker than one who isn’t exposed till they are a teenager. Has to do with brain development. Dogs are no different.

It may workout, but the Dog will definitely be behind the curve, if serious exposure doesn’t start till after 2 YO. No reason not to put Her on Birds now. A duel champion would be great. Few make the grade.

There are exceptions and congrats on the wins. However, this is a Gun Dog and not a show Dog forum.

With your nineteen thousand+ posts, You can probably talk Rick into starting a show dog forum. He would never listen to a guy like me.

And until we have a forum for such, I'll post where I want to.

I never tire of looking at a well put together dog, and that example is very nice! Looks like she is built to do the job she was bred for.

Well….I gave you compliments in spite of thinking how I feel about the show Dog issue. And the fact “”You don’t care”, leaves it open for the rest of us to make comments other than patting you on the back.

Perhaps you could post a “I gotta brag” thread in the long range forum, and tell them how you won your local clubs 40 foot indoor quarter shoot with your Benjamin pellet rifle.

Get that good girl on some birds!
At almost two, she is behind the curve. If you want to hunt over her, that is.
Best of luck with the show dog thing.
