I brought this dog home in 2015 having absolutely no idea what I was doing and no clue how much he would change my life. Thanks to Jeremy and Melanie Steinle of @aspenhillgundogs for taking a chance on me and guiding me through all of this, Ethan and Kat Pippitt of @standingstonekennels for helping produce such a fantastic dog, Jay Wade of Rude Beaver Gundogs for training me how to be a good gundog owner and for helping me lay a foundation for Archer's progress, and Bridget Nielsen of @wall_canyon_vizslas and Tate and Jenny Martinsen of @martinsens_kennel for taking such amazing care of Archer this summer and really polishing him up into what he showed today.
Bridget handled Archer in a stellar manner today and Archer scored 201 out of 204 points to earn a UT Prize I and will be headed to the NAVHDA Invitational next year in Iowa!!! On top of that, Archer and I were reunited once the test was finished after six long months apart having both accomplished the goals we set out for this summer. Now it's time to get out in the field and have some fun!
