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.

Displaying her incredible trainability, after literally, a handful of opportunities to train for the Invitational, Stacha pulled it off and earned the coveted Versatile Champion title! She joined the rankings of only one other GWP, our Karmin, to become a Versatile Champion/Champion/Master Hunter!Head

Stacha has been a great addition to our family.  We’ve enjoyed hunting her on grouse, woodcock, sharptail, huns, and pheasant since she was 6 months old.  She’s the best snuggler, if you stop petting her, she will paw at you to demand continuous attention!
