Puppies and Started Dogs

On occasion we take a Pick of the litter from a breeding of our stud dog Flame and train with the intention of producing a great started dog one that is ready to take to the duck blind on Opening day or into the upland field to hunt Pheasant, quail or any of the upland Game. We could also produce a great finished dog. One that can stop to the whistle and handle on Blind retrieves and do multiple marks. 

Once you have hunted over a trained Waterfowl or Upland dog you will be hooked for life. We take our started dogs into our home so that he/she is oriented in a family environment. they are housebroken, crate trained, obedience trained including 2 sided heeling, sit, down, here and to be steady on sit and down. Doing single and double retrieves with gunfire. Live and dead birds from ducks, pheasants, chuckars, pigeons, and quail. Retrieving in water and all types of terrain. Our started dogs are introduced to decoys, boats, water stands, and lay out blinds everything we can think of to get them ready for hunting. We sale our started dogs anywhere from 5 months to 12 months with the older pups having more advanced training.

When our pups leave here they could run Started or Junior hunt test. We start Force Fetch and Collar conditioning at 6 months. We guarantee you will be impressed with one of our started dogs. We want our started dog to not only go to hunting homes but, ones that will take our dogs into there home so they can live with and be apart of your family for the rest of there lives. Here at Blazing Red Kennels we know that a dogs personality is just as important as his love of Hunting and we can give you both.

Blazing Red Ruby Teufel Hunden (Ruby) 
FEMA Human Remains Detection K9
Type III Land Human Remains Detection

The pictures you see here are just a moment in time of what I have asked my Flame daughter to do.   She's incredible biddable and resilient.  At the age of three, she has become one of less than 100 FEMA certified Human Remains Detection dogs that serve our country during disasters. At the age of two, she passed her wilderness Human Remains Detection certification to assist local law enforcement in the hunt for lost or missing people.

 In order to pass these tests, she must locate the strongest source of odor and bark until I reach her.  She's a very solid methodical searcher who takes her time and once she commits, will even refuse to leave odor for her reward.  Whether I ask her to do this in the middle of a rubble pile or the woods, she works highly independently and doesn't quit.  

To pass her FEMA certification, we completed an off leash obedience exercise, five minute down stay with the handler out of sight, figure 8 heeling exercise, agility which includes a teeter, wobbly surface (complete with a turn), a partially blocked tunnel with a 90 elbow and must climb a ladder set at a 45 angle up to an 8ft plank.  We must also complete control at a distance, think of a major league baseball diamond and I must direct her to various bases without leaving home plate.  Lastly, we have a rubble pile to search that is ~10,000 square feet in 15 minutes.   

 Ruby handles being a house dog as well as being a working dog.  She's incredibly affectionate and enjoys a good chewy or cuddling on the bed.  

I have enjoyed training with her so much that I chose a Flame son to be my next FEMA Live Find search dog. 

Thank you so much for such a well balanced, level headed driven dog!
