Berryshot Bernie

Berryshot Bernie, known fondly as Bertie, is a client’s dog who is now coming into his prime. Jason has taken this dog for residential training since he was a 6 month old pup. In his three years Bertie has won many awards. In 2018, he came second at the UGS All Aged Trial, qualifying for the finals alongside FT Ch Kestrelway Drake. At the finals, Jason handled Bertie to win the trial with a 300 yard retrieve across a valley. Bertie has automatically qualified for next season’s final as defending champion.
