Reva is one of the very best bred working retrievers in Australia.
Red, is her father, and the mother is an American imported dog RTCh Watermarks N Farmers Little Darlin. Brought into the country by Mr G Tawton.
Reva is genetically clear and has a exceptional hip score of 1/1 elbows 0/0.
A super intelligent animal who is a very fast learner and a pleasure to train.
Reva's debut was in the last trial of 2018, two days after her first birthday! I decided not to run her in beginners as she is a very advanced dog for her age, we ran in both Novice and Restricted.
Reva stepped up and was superbly confident in Novice and Restricted, she went on to win both with great scores. Novice was a field of 32 dogs and she scored 173 out a possible 180, only dropping 7 points. Restricted was a field of 14 dogs and she scored 160.5 out of 180. Both competitions where outstanding I could not have been more pleased for such a young dog to do so well.
Reva had a great year, quickly bowling over her Restricted title with three wins from five start's.
We consolidated our training and started to prepare for All Age and made her debut in May. Reva did not disappoint 5 trials later she won her first All Age in Victoria from a field of 23 dogs.
Having moved interstate to Qld, we entered our first trial of the year. Reva got off to a great start on the first run and held her own for the next two runs, not as clean as I would have liked.
We both made mistakes, but enough to secure a win in a very seasoned field of much older dogs. In just nine trials Reva qualified for the title of Retriever Champion at the ripe young age of just 27 months.
We entered our first trial of the year post Covid, the judge set a challenging test, which was a long mark, a blind with a handler relocation. We did not complete. The next weekend of trialling was with the Wide Bay Working Gundog Club at Bundeburg.
Reva performed really well, two totally different style of trials. We placed 4th on Sat and 2nd on Sun to her kennel mate Ace.
