Here's a message we got from Ms. Long and her dog Tia. Tia was a pup from our kennel from a couple of years ago.
Just a note to let you know Miss Tia is doing wonderful,( here is a few photos ) we have been working hard on commands she,sits, stays, whatever is in her mouth she will drop it,(she steals paper towels off the kitchen counter), leaves it, I can put her about 250 feet away, tell her to stay,call her name, then come, she will come running like a rocket... stop and sit by my side...if anybody or anything is going down the road I tell her to leave it, she does just that....since she has a puny stomach , I had to think of something other than food to train her, so she has a favorite toy that does the trick...for fun she barks when I tell her to....I've just trained her to jump high in front of me and give me 5 ....what a joy she is, I love this dog so much...she is like talking to a person....so that's about it ....She is a Cujo and Abby pup and is now 2 1/2 years old...Mighty Dog weighs in at about 95 pounds and still looks slim to me !! Hope all is well in you'all's corner of the world...Lucille and Tia !!
My name is Ryan Strickland and my wife Anita and I fell in love with the white dog, "Ziva" on the our dogs page. I found an older male "Yoda" and brought him home and we talked it over and decided to branch out Strickland's Kennels into NE Cape Fear GSD. Strickland's Kennels was a working retriever kennels that bred, raised, trained, and hunt tested retriever. We bred Golden and Chesapeake Bay Retriever since the early 1990's. I still train a retriever every so often for myself as a hunting dog or for a special client. We've been breeding and raising dogs since 1993.
