Bob is from Flo's first litter with Levenghyl Como (Drago) as a sire, and he is 8 years and 8 months old. Bob is a true worker. Bold on the outside, but calm in his heart, he is our gentle giant, and yet very easy to train.

At the age of eight months, Bob passed the Danish Retriever Club's Aptitude test. Within four weeks of the spring of 2014, Bob was awarded two first prizes at Official cold game test in novice class, qualifying him for Intermediate class, and at his debut in intermediate class, Bob took an impressive win as 1WT with 116 points out of 120 possible. During the 2014 season, Bob participated in six official working tests, achieving a winner's position in all of them, and he continued his working success into 2015 where he, after having competed at 11 working tests, official and unofficial, achieved a winner's position in them all.

Before he reached the age of two years, Bob had added two 1st prizes in intermediate class on official cold game tests, which qualified him for the novice field trials, and open class on cold game. At the age of 2 years and 3 months, Bob had 1st prize in his novice field trial, and was then qualified for open class on both cold and warm game.

Bob is a brilliant working dog and an excellent gamefinder who works with style and speed. He is a joy to work with on shooting or picking up days. He sits calmly and waits for his turn, and he works intelligently and independently.

She has passed the Danish Retriever Club Aptitude Test, she has been awarded WT4 in Novice Working Test, and she has been awarded a 1st prize in official cold game test.

Bosse is 3 years old. He is bred by Mr Ian W. Christie in Scotland and imported to Denmark as a puppy in May 2018. Bosse is a modern type of field trial labrador, with powerful-looking exterior, and he is a very talented young retriever with super movements and loads of charm. Above all, he has exactly the kind of temper that we prefer when we match our bitches with a dog. We know this temper quite well, as Bosse's litter sister is one of our young bitches, Squareclose Wendy (Nessie).

Bosse is a huge trialing talent. At the age of two he has received his first 1st place in open class cold game test, and qualified for the Danish Field Trial Championship 2020, which was not run due to Covid-19 restrictions. He also carries a "Very Good" show result, and he has at the age of 2 years and 11 months won his first Mock Trail in open class.

Bosse's physical health status is excellent: Hip and elbow scores of (A) and (0) respectively, and he is genetically tested clear of PRAprcd, CNM, SD2, EIC, Stargardt and HNPK. He carries a clear eye certificate from 2019.
Holly is 4 years and 9 months old. She is one of our own, with Ravensbank Biscuit (Bibi) as mother and DKFTCH DKTM DKBRCH DKJCH Studebaker Bonneville (Mike) as her dad.

She is a very charming and calm worker, and she has inherited all the fine qualities we want to see in a breeding bitch. She is a "pleaser" who loves to cooperate. Her health status is excellent: She has hip score A and elbow score 0 (FCI-registered scores). She is genetically clear by parentage from PRA, CNM, SD2 and EIC.

In 2018 she has had her Working Test debut, and she consistently delivered fine results. She also had her debut on our picking-up team in 2018, and she has proven to be a calm and reliable worker and an excellent game finder.
