Additional Details:

Grouser is one of the best grouse dogs we have had at Willow Creek. We had been pondering his name for some time until he went on run in mid-March, 2018 (8.5 months old). He had three finds on grouse within a span of 20 minutes. We were extremely happy with his natural ability to find and point grouse at a young age. We have been working to develop the Willow Creek grounds to hold more birds and wildlife and the management has been paying off. Grouser's ability to find and point one of the most challenging upland birds sealed the right to his name.

2022 - April 24 & 25 - Grouser wins first place in the Moose River Grouse Club cover dog trial. He ran Open Shooting Dog with 21 other dogs, handled by Jordan Pharris. 

Spring 2022 - Grouser achieves his MH title 

Grouser's mother, Willow Creek's Allie Girl MH is owned by Mark & Linda Colden. She was Chad & Tracy's pick of the litter from Sky x Honker back in 2014. At that time we didn't need more black and white breeding females with little ticking so we let her go to Mark and Linda, knowing there would be potential to see her again. Allie finished her AKC Master Hunt test title by passing 6 out of 6 tests. She has a big nose, lots of point, a strong retrieve and back. Allie also handled birds well at a young age and she did so with lots of style. 

We are thankful to Howie Hill for the development of Northwater GSPs and for allowing us to breed to Tug.
