Callie was the 6th puppy in Hilfy's fourth and last litter, born June 5, 2008. She was the puppy identified originally as "Sunshine" or "Yellow" because of her baby collar color. We picked her to stay here on the farm with us. She has brains, personality, sturdy build, and demented reaction to ducks. She completed her Senior Hunter title at less than two years old on May 30, 2010, and earned her Master Hunter title at age two years, 11 months, on May 15, 2011. She then went on to earn a CD in the winter of 2012, and her first three Novice Agility titles in January 2013. She earned two open Agility titles in December 2013 but we put that on hold for a while and took her back out in the field in fall 2014 and spring 2015, where she qualified for the 2015 Master National and earned the MH12 title (although we still have to send in our money to AKC for that to be official). She came back out in agility and won several open titles when other events in our life ended her agility career. She is now working on advanced obedience and we may get more titles on her yet -- and she still goes out and competes in the occasional Hunt Test, plus regular training days and club trials. Plus, she gets lots of lap time as this is one cuddly Golden!

Callie's Titles

  • WCX: Callie earned her WCX (Working Certificate Excellent) title at the Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty in Bristol, TN on October 26, 2014.

  • Open Agility Fast: Callie finished her Open Fast title on December 6 and earned her first Excellent leg the next day. She also earned an Excellent Jumpers leg at the same show. She missed the January show by virtue of being in season. Her agility career is on hold as we are back working in the field, hoping to qualify her for the 2015 Master National Hunt Test.

  • Open Agility Jumpers: Callie continued with her agility career and titled at the ORKC trial April 5. She has two legs on Open Agility Standard (OA) and Open Fast (OF) but there aren't any more trials for several months in our area so those titles will have to wait.

  • Novice Agility, Novice Jumps and Weaves, and Novice Fast: Callie took up agility training in the summer of 2012 and earned her first 3 agility titles at Knoxville's agility trial in December 2012 and Oak Ridge's in January 2013, with all blue ribbons and only one score that wasn't perfect. She also earned an Open Jumper and an Open Fast leg at the ORKC trial. Jim did all the training and handling. Callie enjoys the agility far more than obedience, but says it still can't compare to the field!

  • Companion Dog: Callie completed the required passes for her CD title on January 27, 2012 at three years of age. Her three passes were at the Smoky Mountain Cluster show in Knoxville, TN in November 2011, and at the Franklin, TN show in January 2012. Jim did all the training and handling. Callie says she would rather be chasing ducks!

  • Master Hunter: Callie completed the five required passes for her Master Hunter title on May 15, 2011 at two years of age. Her qualifying runs were at Black Warrior in Alabama in Fall 2010; and Central Kentucky, Black Warrior, Magnolia (Flora, MS) and MidSouth in spring 2011. Callie is trained and handled by Jody Ware of Razor Sharp Kennels, who has done a wonderful job with training her to be a very stylish and exciting working retriever while maintaining her cheerful and happy personality. Jim is now handling her in some of the Master tests, and says that Callie knows much more about this than he does!

  • Senior Hunter: Callie earned her Senior Hunter title May 30, 2010, at just under two years of age. Her 4 qualifying runs were at Black Warrior in Alabama; Middle Tennessee Retriever Club's Spring Hunt Test at Lavergne, TN; and two East Tennessee Retriever Club Hunt Tests in Spring City, TN. She was trained and handled by Jody Ware of Razor Sharp Kennels. Callie has quite the motor!

  • Junior Hunter: Callie earned her Junior Hunter title October 4, 2009, at 16 months, with two qualifying runs at the East Tennessee Retriever Club Hunt Tests in Spring City, TN with Jim handling. She earned her first two legs at the East TN spring hunt test, and the Middle TN Retriever Club Hunt Test, with our trainer Jody Ware handling. Callie has tons of drive and great marking ability, and it is so much fun to watch her work!
