Cooper is our hard hunting Chessie that just happens to be sweetest dog we have ever owned. Anyone of any age can walk right up to her and she will take all the attention she can get. Her exceptional traits are; her love of retrieveing and water, her gentle demeanor, her good blind manners and her extremely high desire to retrieve. She has a very aggressive water entry, will hunt for hours and hours and will still want more. Cooper is at a solid Senior Hunter level or just at a Master level. Her main downfall at a Master would be her nose getting her into trouble on water blinds. She runs triples and quads, land blinds to 175 yrd, water blinds to 125 yrds. Cooper is biddable and loves to retrieve anything. A classic chessie with the modern trainable attitude.
She is always on the hunt, whether we are just out for a walk or sitting in the blind, Cooper is always looking for a bird. In many ways, i prefer to hunt Cooper over Sage or Duke becauase she has the ideal amount of intensity and drive for any real hunt and yet she is never over the top. Cooper also has an intense natural point that we discovered on wild pheasants in ND in 2012. She has proven to be a great, all around hunting companion, regardless of the game or habitat.
Cooper is ready to complete her Senior and then Master in Spring 2014.
