ZEST

Tarrantvale Mint at Rapidgold born July 2016 from a litter of 5. Sire Jackalantern Hedwig, dam Spiderwick Freckle Face. First boy to join our team and I am excited to start puppy training! 

 

Zest was thoroughly researched and brought up from deep in England to join Rapidgold Cocker Spaniels in agility. The Jackalantern line has been improving its spaniels for 30 years in both health and working ability. When I saw their vinny (Jackalantern Hedwig), his outstanding conformation and strong ability I knew I had to get a pup from him. I waited a while for the right bitch to be put to him and was very pleased with the pairing with Spiderwick Freckle Face.

 

His pedigree is full of exceptional healthy strong working line dogs that all actively work the shooting season. Zest brings some nice fresh lines into Scotland which will significantly lower the coi of any bitch up here.

 

Zest is hereditary clear for PRCD/PRA, AMS & FN, patella 0/0, and also has a clear and current BVA eye test and GONIO cert.

Training 

 
Zest competed in a couple of working tests earlier in the year. This was a great opportunity for us to see what criteria is needed for the tests and also to compare my training and zests ability with the others also in the test.
 

Zest is becoming more steady and reliable than Lexi was at this age. He is maturing nicely and progressing well through his gundog training.

 

He is now steady to thrown dummies and drops to shot without reinforcement. He is a strong and fast lad that has retrieved all sorts of cold and warm game no bother.

 

Looking forward to getting him out this shooting season to continue his training. I know he will go up a gear!

 

I always focus on gundog training first with my guys. The advanced obediance is a great base for future agility work also.

 

Agility isnt my priority with this boy, however he has a good understanding of all the basics, he completes training with ease and has experienced running in the ring at training events.
