Druid Peak - "Druid"
The name of my kennel comes from the wolf pack “Druid’s Peak pack” in Yellowstone National Park. My first working Labrador dog, called Druid Peak, I received him as a gift from my late partner, was an unique hunter and gave the name to my kennel.
Breeder: Tiziano Cagnoni
Sire: Greenbriar Caffrey of Morayglen
Dam: Maccabees Yankee goes to Tuscany
With Druid I tried to work, on a serious basis for Field Trials, unfortunately this was not possible as Druid could not be trained. Nobody was able to. His strong character and his incredible instinct and ethic for hunting made him not usable for Trials. He brought me to consult the most famous and best trainers, in the UK and in Europe, and after 5 years of tough experiences and trying all kind of methods, I finally came to the conclusion that Field Trials were not for him. And in the moment I’ve cancelled tis pressure from him and me, we immediately started getting better and better in our relationship. And…he is a fantastic hunter, he knows where game is without searching for it. He just knows. This is fantastic and nobody until now was in the position to explain how this is possible, but it seems to be a miracle when a dog finds all the birds that the dogs in a trial did not find before…without searching for them.
Now he just enjoys picking ups a lot.
And….Druid is more than a hunter, he is a very special dog, the recognized several tumors in other dogs and shows with sniffing where injuries are, in human and dogs.
Il nome del mio affisso arriva dal branco di lupi “Druid’s Peak” nel Yellowstone National Park. Ho ricevuto il mio primo Labrador da lavoro, chiamato Druid Peak, da Tiziano come regalo, e questo cane era un cacciatore unico e grazie a lui mio allevamento si chiama Druid’s Peak.
Ho provato a lavorare con Druid, seriamente, per poter gareggiare in Field Trials, purtroppo questo con Druid non era possibile perché lui non era addestrabile. Nessuno era in grado di addestrarlo. Suo carattere fortissimo, il suo istinto più forte di lui e la sua etica venatoria non permettevano di partecipare in un Field Trial dove era necessario il pure controllo. Per “colpa” sua consultavo i più famosi e rinomati Trainer in Inghilterra e Europa, ma dopo 5 anni di dure esperienze e provando tutte le metodologie possibili, arrivo’ alla conclusione che Field Trials non erano adatti a lui. Cancellando questa pressione da me e da lui, iniziavamo subito a stare meglio. Accettavo. E… lui è un cacciatore fantastico .
