SRSC GRHRCH (9) Oak Points Traveling Man MH MNH HOF
(SRS GRHRCH (10) UH Tarbaby's Bobo MH MNH x HRCH Big Creek's Jorja Peach)
The first performance dog we ever owned, Mason is the foundation of our kennel. From the time we brought him home, he showed great potential as a competitive retriever. His formal training was done by Stephen Durrence at Taylor Farm Kennels. He has been competitive in every venue that we've run. He is a member of both AKC's Master National Hall of Fame and UKC's Hunting Retriever Club Hall of Fame.
Mason has passed the Hunting Retriever Club's International Grand nine times and recently acquired the additional points required for UKC's Hall of Fame designation. He also holds UKC's newly established Super Retriever Series (SRSC) title. He ran the the Super Retriever Series Crown Championship in 2016, 2017 and 2018 advancing to the semi-finals and placing 9th overall in 2016 and 8th overall in 2017. With a 2nd place finish at Central Florida and a 3rd place finish at Charleston, he is qualified to run in the Crown Championship again in the fall of 2019.
He is a Master Hunter and earned qualifying scores at AKC's Master National in 2015, 2017 and 2018. His qualifying score at the 2018 Master National in Roseburg Oregon earned him the Master National Hunter title and entry into the Master National Hall of Fame.
In a limited number of AKC Field Trials, Mason acquired 5 derby points before aging out and earned QAA designation with a 2nd place finish at the Tall Pines 2019 Spring Qualifying Stake.
He is moderately sized, generally weighing between 65-70 lbs. He is a fast dog, driven in the field. When he is home and relaxing he spends most of the time in the house and is is an 'easy keeper' with a funny, expressive personality.
