Mickey CH pictureMickey is the son of CH Edie's Lord of the Water Strider, RN, FMCh and CH Little Brownies Peanut M and M, JH. He has shown his ability as both an upland dog and waterfowl retriever. In 2015 he completed three of the required four passes toward his Junior Hunter title. He is expected to complete that title in 2017 and move on to working toward his Senior Hunter title. He entered the show ring in 2015 as well and finished his AKC championship on April 10, 2016. We look forward to many years with Mickey both in the field and as a stud dog contributing to our breeding program.

Other Dogs Used at Stud

Little Brownies Kennel commonly uses what is referred to as line-breeding in its breeding program. That means we typically breed dogs that are somewhat but not too closely related to one another (cousins, aunts bred to nephews, etc.) in order to maintain the health, type, and quality of the offspring produced. When a kennel uses line-breeding it needs to occasionally introduce outside bloodlines (referred to as out-crossing - where very distantly related or totally unrelated dogs are bred together) to maintain genetic diversity or it will eventually begin to develop an in-breeding program. We believe that the AWS community has far too many breeders that are in-breeding (brothers to sisters, fathers to daughters, etc.) over and over again and that all breeders need to strive to develop more diversification in the American Water Spaniel gene pool.

Call name: Strider

Strider was used at stud in September of 2013. He stands a little taller than 18" and weighs in at 45 pounds of solid muscle. He is owned by Gunnar and Theresa Tokar of Gaithersburg, Maryland. In pursuit of his AKC Championship, Strider was shown by Gunnar who was then 11 to 12 years old. Strider participated in one Eukanuba Invitational, two Westminister Kennel Club shows, and three Purina National Championship shows; earning two Best of Opposites, an Award of Merit and 3 Best of Breeds. Strider has obtained his Rally Novice (RN) title and competes in Flyball dog competitions. In Flyball, Strider holds the historic place of the #1 AWS in breed statistics and has earned the North American Flyball Association title of Flyball Master Champion (FMCh). Strider has an awesome temperament and proves his drive and strength in Flyball Racing and in agility training. He demonstrates his happy-go-lucky disposition to get along with other dogs as a team Flyball dog and living with 6 other dogs of different breeds at home. As you will see, if you review his pedigree, Strider is from a breeding of AKC/UKC CH. Little Brownies Ceske Pivo and UKC CH California Artemis Kali. Bringing the two breeding programs together has worked well in the past and produced some excellent hunting and companion dogs. We anticipate some great puppies from Strider over the next few years.

Zip's JH title certificateCall name: Zip
Born: February 2, 2010
OFA - ECR: AWS-373993
OFA Hip: AWS-681G26M-VPI
OFA Thyroid: AWS-TH37/30M-VPI

Zip was used at stud for the first time in the fall of 2012. We had seen Zip in the summer of 2011 while attending a hunt test in western New York. We loved his temperament, hunting ability, size and coat. Like many of the Wine Country Kennel dogs he reminded us of our own and so we decided that we would keep an eye on his development for future consideration as a possible stud dog. A year later we were once again at another hunt test in New York where we were able to see Zip complete his Junior Hunter and earn the first pass toward his Senior Hunter title. We were very impressed with him and entered into a conversation with his owners regarding having him stand at stud with one or two of our girls. Having successfully combined Little Brownies Kennel and Wine Country Kennel dogs in the past we are excited about this new pairing. Zip hunts both waterfowl and upland game and is a companion to Shawn Church and Shannon Bozeat in upstate New York.

Call name: Stone

Stone is from a breeding between Shooter and Violet. He is a great looking dog with good movement, a wonderful temperament, and excellent working ability. Since he was six months old he has spent time in the field pulling retrieving and flushing duties from Michigan to North Dakota. He is used to hunt ducks, pheasants, and all types of gamebirds. While he is not owned by us, he does reside in Michigan and can be seen at our place several times a year. We have kept an eye on him from the day he was born and he has never disappointed us. As you can see above, he is a healthy fella and we look forward to using him at stud later in 2015. His owners entered their first hunt test in the spring of 2015 and earned the first pass toward the Junior Hunter title. We expect that we will be seeing him out at other hunt tests in the future.
