Since 2018 our small kennel LINKWOOD is registered in the FCI / German Retriever Club e.V. 2019 the first litter with our bitch Ragweed's Fifty-Fifty is planned.
A few words about my person: I have been involved in training dogs since more than 20 years. Since my childhood retrievers have been part of my life. All dogs, each in his own way, have influenced my attitude to breeding and training. Int. & Belg. FTCH Ragweed's Keed is my most successful dog so far. With him I have participated successfully in many field trials in Europe. Besides numerous victories, winning the Belgian Retriever Championship 2017/2018, the 3rd place in 2016/2017 as well as the recent 4th place at the ICC, the European Retriever Championship, have been some of the highlights.
Also on dummies I could already win many workingtests, mock trials and special prizes with my dogs. In 2018 we could achieve the 9th place with our team at the International Workingtest (IWT) in Italy, in the individual ranking we made it from 108 dogs into the Top 10. In 2017 we took 3rd place for Germany at the International Team Event in Chatsworth (GB) and 2nd place at the Belgian Workingtest Final.
Since 2016 I have been a judge in the German Retriever Club e.V. and have judged numerous Workingtests at home and abroad since then.
