2 Black Males

  • 1st Pick Black Male - $1550 - Mike and Christine S. (S.C. training, blue collar named "Granite"; pick up Nov. 4th)
  • 2nd Pick Black Male "Coal" - $1450 now $1150 - Nicole Reams - SALE PENDING (Pick up in Davis 12/1)
  • Trainer's Notes: Coal loves to be pet, praised and cuddled. His fur is exceptionally soft and softer than his sisters'. He is very affectionate and loves to please his person. He is very food-motivated, which makes training easy. He likes walks and stays close by, even when other dogs go running ahead. He will make a loyal companion and best friend. Someone who enjoys hiking or jogging will have a great companion dog in this guy and he already walks nicely on a lead.

2 Black Females

  • 1st Pick Black Female "Ruby" - $1800 now - Bill Elliott
  • Trainer's Notes: Ruby is very sweet. She has a medium-high energy level. SHe's eager to please and is a little more sensitive, yet confident. She is extremely smart and knows "here" and "sit" commands very well. She is crate training well and is coming along nicely on her "kennel" command. She loves to retrieve and enjoys praise and belly rubs. I have seen her point too! She's a little more independent than her brother and is not highly food-motivated, preferring play as a reward.
  • 2nd Pick Black Female "Sapphire" - $1700 now $1400 - John McNamara
  • Trainer's Notes: Sapphire is very playful. She has a medium energy level and loves playing ball and fetch. She's intelligent and learns quickly, making ehr easy to train. She knows the "here" and "sit" commands well and is doing well with crate training. She loves her belly rubs! She's a little more independent than her brother and is not as food-motivated, preferring play and belly rubs as rewards. I saw a flash point in her once, so she could be a pointer.

2 Chocolate Males

  • 1st Pick Chocolate Male - $1750 - Chad M.
  • 2nd Pick Chocolate Male - $1650 - Apryll A.


SIRE: Goliath was purchased from Sam’s Creek Kennel in Northern Oregon because of his strong hunting ability and rock-solid point. Goliath is a handsome, well-built 75-pound hunting machine that loves life and yet knows how to settle down when indoors. Goliath is a friendly, alert and fun-loving dog, who lives to retrieve and is very athletic. He has a high work drive, loves water, and absolutely loves to hunt. Goliath is actually one of the strongest natural pointers that we own, coupled with his high bird drive and good natural quartering skills he is a fun dog to watch in the field.  He has also thrown puppies that we are very proud of, who display intelligence, good looks, trainability and strong natural retrieve. 

Goliath has it all: 1) Superb looks, 2) Terrific hunting drive, 3) Even temperament, 4) Trainable nature, 5) Strong pedigree, and 6) Staunch natural point.  This dog has been a dream to train. He also is the true definition of a "NATURAL POINTER".

DAM: Chetco was born at Marble Mountain Kennels in Northern California on June 7, 2016 as a result of a breeding between two of MMK’s favorites, Banks and Trinity. Chetco is a 49-pound black Labrador Retriever who is gentle and sweet. She has a slightly shy personality, but loves time with people and really enjoys being pet and snuggled. Like her parents, Banks and Trinity, Chetco is very trainable with a softer personality. Her body is compact and small with medium-length, thick black fur. She loves birds and enjoys the upland field. Chetco’s strongest traits are her gentle personality, her smart looks and her smaller frame. (Read more about Chetco on her biography page.)

LITTER DESCRIPTION: The pairing between Goliath and Chetco is intended to combine the athletic and intense hunting drive of Goliath, with the calm gentle personality of Trinity. We hope this will give us 50-75 pound pups with great looks, even temperaments and great hunting drive. 

LITTER TRAITS: Ranking as great potential (scale of 1-10, with 10 being highest)

  1. Family dog = 9
  2. Upland dog = 9
  3. Waterfowl dog = 7
  4. Therapy dog = 7.5
