This is a repeat breeding and there is a reason why!  The pups out of the first litter are super nice dogs.  Showing a great retrieving desire with the off switch we all enjoy.  They are going to big powerful dogs.  The reports from owners as well as Professional Trainers on the pups from first pairing of these two has been very positive.  Which left us no doubt that this combination should be repeated. 

Blacks and yellows arrived on 11/20/19. 

Black Males Available.

2011 NAFC FC AFC Cody Cut A Lean Grade


Grady is owned and loved by Chad and Paige Baker. At four months of age, Grady was running over 200 yards to a back pile and retrieving plenty of marks. At six months he went to Jim Van Engen's camp where he learned his basics and started his derby training. In the fall of 2005 Chad brought him home to run a few derbies. He racked up 26 points in 12 trials! That fall he also jammed his first Qualifier at 17 months and won a 48 dog Qualifier the next weekend. Grady returned to Jim's for winter training.


Grady's impressive record earned him a spot on the Handjem truck with Mike Lardy and crew. At 4 years old Grady earned his FC and AFC. He qualified for the 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 National Amateurs. He also qualified for the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 National Opens. By winning the 2011 National Amateur, Grady is also qualified to compete at the Canadian National Open and Amateur in 2011!


Grady is a great producer! He has numerous puppies on the National Derby List, Qualified All Age, and placing in All Age Stakes! In 2010 Grady's pups won 37 derbies with 17 different pups including the High Point and #3 derby dogs. They accumulated 276+ derby points with 12 pups making the list. In 2011 Grady's pups accumulated 249+ points including 14 making the list and the High Point derby dog for the consecutive year. Multiple pups have earned their QAA while still competing in derbies. Grady sired 2012 NAFC Paddle Creek's Pack Your Grip "Traveler" and 2015 NFC AFC Keeno's Gizmo "Gizmo".
