Stacha is the whole package!  AKA “The Stache”, she gets her name from her perfect little white mustache! Stacha makes heads turnBaby Stache 1 whether it’s in the field or show ring.  She quickly and easily gained her AKC Show Champion title in just two weekends.  Winning Best of Breed from the classes at 6 months old, then later winning Best of Breed from the Bred by Exhibitor class over 8 specials at a GWP Specialty.  Stacha then won Select Bitch and Best Bred By Exhibitor at the AKC/Eukanuba National Invitational under 2 years old over all time top ranked GWP’s.  At the 2016 GWPCA National in Oregon, Stacha won Best of Opposite Sex over 62 other GWP’s. Stacha is always exclusively breeder/owner/handled by Courtney.

StachaStacha isn’t merely a star “show dog”, she shines even more in the field! She received a perfect score of 112 points, earning a Prize I in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test.  Stacha has been one of the most cooperative, trainable gwp’s we’ve had the pleasure to work with.  She has always had a love for retrieving, and a natural honor, so she swept through Senior Hunter testing with 5 easy passes, at just barely 2 years old.  In Fall 2015, we tried her in a couple field trial Derby stakes, where she earned 1 derby point and defeated 15 dogs.  While she’s not a big running, horseback dog; Stacha stays forward, consistent, and hunts objectives.  She has beautiful style on point.  Summer of 2016, Stacha earned her NAVHDA Utility Prize II then a month later ran AKC Master Hunter tests, passing all 5 legs in a row! In Summer 2017, Stacha tested in NAVHDA Utility, and earned a perfect score of 204 points, and a Prize I, which qualified her to run in the 2018 NAVHDA Invitational.Head

Stacha has been a great addition to our family.  We’ve enjoyed hunting her on grouse, woodcock, and pheasant since she was 6 months old.  Mostly, she is our son, Burke’s, favorite companion.  They adore each other, and will play fetch for hours.
