"BISRBA MBIOC HCH NCH IntCH Two Gun's Sky Island Manzanita Rush CGC CGCU CGCA, NAVHDA NA 110 P1"
Ila is the puppy we kept out of Powder's 2019 litter with Joeri. Ila has a healthy dose of her grandpa Booker, the athleticism of her momma, and the sweetness and metered passion of her father and paternal grandfather. She really is the best parts of what the dogs in her pedigree bring.
Ila has been 'trained' exclusively using LIMA methods (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive). She has a ton of drive and loves birds. At just 6 months of age, she was steady to wing, shot, fall, and release. Additionally, she sports one of the most stylish points we've seen from a Drent. Ila loves to swim and has a natural retrieve. She is highly intuitive, intelligent, comedic, and is a master of canine communication, winning over any and all dogs she meets. She's a hoot to be around in the home and in the field. In short, she was born to be a traveling wing shooter's companion - Made for Adventure!
With just three hunting seasons under her belt, she has been successful on the following species of upland birds: Ruffed, Spruce, Sharptailed, Sage, and Blue grouse. Mearns, Valley, Gambles, Scaled, and Mountain quail. As well as Chukar, Hungarian Partridge, and Pheasant. She gets on average 70 days per season hunting wild birds.
Ila is also the first and only female Drent to win multiple Bests in AKC Open Show (Title is Best in Open Conformation - BIOC).
She has possibly the most nicknames of any of our dogs and will respond to "Ila Bug, Bug Juice, Weaslethorn, Stink Bug, Pup Nugget, Shitbird, Tuna Trout, Moose, and Ding Ding."...just to name a few!
