This is a beautiful black and white spaniel that is so impressive with his long flowing gate as he scours the field searching for upland game  He patterns well covering his beat when quartering.  He responds well to voice and hand commands, such as to come in or turn to a different direction.


He is at an intermediate level of training.  He is steady to wing and shot or remain at heal as a nonslip retriever.  He swims for ducks as he marks and makes waterfowl retrieves.​

 When hunting upland birds, he runs in a sweeping pattern that is easily within shooting range of the handler.  He responds well to both hand and whistle signals, such as coming in closer or turning to go any direction the handler indicates.  He is steady to wing and shot, such that he sits when the bird that he has flushed out rises and is shot.  He retrieves promptly to hand and has a soft mouth.  He has had pheasant, quail and ducks shot over him. (A standard in the Big Sky training program.)


He swims well and can be a very effective duck dog.  He is nonslip steady.
