13 month started DD. Short coat, with the DD beard. She has been spayed. We have worked some on tracking and seems to excel at that. Most of our work has been on upland hunting. She has a strong nose and will hold a steady point. Great natural retrieve to hand. Basic verbal commands including kennel. House broken to use a bell at the back door. Not aggressive, she stays in our home with three kids aged from 9 - 14 years old. Friendly towards other dogs, will not bark at them while walking down the street, etc.
