Paddy is an excellent dog, I think the best dog that I have ever trained, he is an excellent marker, a temperament that I wish all dogs would have.  He has got his first award before he was 15 months old. (Walked up Novice dummy trial) 2nd Place, he has also won the novice test at Shanes Castle Game Fair,

He has run in 7 field trials under Irish Kennel club : At 19 months he took 1st place in first ever Novice Field Trial and his second trial 21 months old he took 2nd in Open stake, a  week later he took 1st place in open stake which has qualified him for the Irish Retriever Championship 2014. At 22month old he took 1st Place in the Derby Stake, a week later he came 2nd place in a Open stake which made him up to a FTCH.  I am looking forward to running him in working tests during the summer months.
