About 40 dog/owner teams were there.  First place went to Bill Hinz with a Yellow Lab, second place went to Scott King with a Yellow Lab, and third place went to Kimberly Terry with a Pudelpointer.  Sorry I don't have the names of the dogs.

I attened this event as a spectator, I don't own a dog. I live nearby in Corona. I have to say that it's a unique facility. I wish I'd known about it when I had my Brittany. If your looking for a place to train your dog you should check it out. Most of the dogs were GSP, Labs, Brittanys, with a few Musterlanders and Pudelpointers. It was a nice show case for a variety of breeds and their abilities.

Long shot,

Welcome to the forum, Jesse has the most comprehensive and updated site on the net, you'll end up spending alot of time here.

I was wondering the same thing, I plan on entering my springer next year when she's older. As far as I know it's a yearly event.

  I arrived a little late. It started at 7 am, I got there about 9:30. I didn't see any springers, and it looks like a yearly event.

Results of 14th annual Gun Dog Showdown from March 23, 2002


On March 9th we gathered at the Prado Dog Training area for a fun day of friendly competition.  This is always a day that is as much fun for the competitors as it is for the spectators.  With 10 different dog breeds and 41 runs there were plenty of variety and hunting styles to observe.  This year was very competitive with 11 dog/human teams collecting 3 birds in less than 10 minutes.

In first place was Bill Hinz and Buddy, a Yellow Lab with a run of 5:45, 3 shots 1 safety, score 61.  In second place was Scott King and Simon, a Yellow Lab with a run of 5:40, 3 shots, score 57.33.  In third place was Kim Terry and Blitz, a Pudelpointer with a run of 6:21, 3 shots, score 54.6.  In fourth place was Ron Gibbons and Heide, a German Short-Haired Pointer with a run of 7:32, 3 shots score 49.87.  In fifth place was Scott King again, but this time with Tucker, a Yellow Lab with a run of 6:31, 5 shots, 1 safety, score 47.93.  In sixth place was Kim Terry and Blitz again, with a run of 8:30, 3 shots, score 46.
In seventh place was Ed Claire and Cameo, a Brittany with a run of 9:20, 3 shots, score 42.67.  In eighth place was Craig McClury and Jake, a Brittany with a run of 9:32, 3 shots, score 41.87.  In ninth place was Paul Stoeffler and Heike, a German Short-Haired Pointer with a run of 9:41, 3 shots, score 41.27.  In tenth place was Wendell Deppe and Ginger, a Brittany with a run of 9:56, 4 shots, score 35.1.  In eleventh place was Tom Mitchell and Hunter Bear, a Lab with a run of 9:56, 5 shots, score 30.27

So this year the flusher/human teams took the first two spots.  With Kim Terry placing third it marks the first time a woman has placed in the competition!  Kim proved this was not a fluke by having two scoring runs.  It also marks the second year in a row that Pudelpointers have placed.  As many have never seen a Pudelpointer, this is a great example that the Gun Dog Showdown is a place to see a wide variety of breeds in action.


Thanks to Vahe Alaverdian, Robert Armijo, Dave Bills, Tim Bovard, Hugh Bowles, Wendell Deppe, John Forgy, Kinde Forgy, Rusty Fraser, Philippe Lapin, Mary Morris, Gerard Orban, Blair Pike, and others who helped make the Gun Dog Showdown a success.

See you in March 2003 for another great Gun Dog Showdown presented by SGVQU.
