"ROCKY" : GCH Birch Bark Chiseled Rock MH
Rocky” GCH Birch Bark Chiseled Rock MH – Rocky earned his MH title at the Northern Flight Hunting Retrievers Association in Marine on St. Croix MN at the age of 27 months.
Rocky and his handler Lauren Springer went five for five and finished his MH in 15 days from the time they started working together. Rocky learns quickly. He skipped JH, started running SH tests in May 2023, and spent his summer alternating between running hunt tests and enjoying time with his family. He’s a true “Minnesota boy” and is happiest when out on the lake swimming, or in a hunting blind with one of his humans.
Rocky entered the show ring in January, 2024 with his handler Howard Huber Jr. He finished his AKC Champion title January 17, 2024 after earning three 5 point majors. He earned his AKC Grand Champion title on February 1, 2024 (pending AKC confirmation).
Rocky is a wonderful dog both at home and in the field. He lives with his family of four and one other Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He’s got excellent temperament and “house manners” and respects all of his humans. He’s gentle enough to be around children or the elderly, but he flips a switch and is all “on” when it’s time to hunt.
Rocky (5/13/21 GCH Chessieville Bay Maximum Caliber CGCA RI TKI x GCH Next Generations Chiseled in Stone) was bred by Joan Morris. Owners are Curt and Suzanne Holt. Rocky was trained by Craig Klein of Fischer’s Kennels. He was handled by Curt Holt and Craig Klein in SH and Lauren Springer in MH.
He ran his first field trial in September, 2023. He entered the show ring in January, 2024 and quickly became a Grand Champion. Plans are for him to run additional field trials in the coming year.
