(UK) Sh Ch / German Ch / Irish Sh Ch/ International Sh Ch/ US MBISS GCh Ch Timo II V. Bockenhagen at Kimmax (European Winner 09) CGC, VX, MH, UT 1
Owner: Peter & Maxine McCullough
No matter where Timo is… whether a dog show, NAVHDA event, hunt test, or just out for a hike…. he’s a standout dog!! He is the ideal GWP, he has an incredibly harsh, dense coat, that covers his entire body. He’s distinguished in the dog show world, because unlike many, he never has any “product” in his coat or false alterations… he is what he is!! He has great depth of chest and well sprung ribs for lung capacity to hunt all day. Timo has a broad, parallel head making him capable to retrieve a full sized Canadian Goose. On top of his good looks, he has incredible field capabilities. He came to the US with previous training in the UK where dogs flush their own birds then sit before they’re sent for the retrieve. It took Timo only a short time to keep steady to wing and shot and stay standing. When he’s out in the field, he’s having fun and working at every moment for his handler. He’s so excited after he’s brought a retrieve to hand that he rolls over on his back, legs straight up in the air asking for belly rubs, which goes to show his fun-loving character. He naturally honors, which has been a blessing for us, because training a dog to honor is one of the most difficult things to do, and his progeny are already exhibiting this same quality. Timo’s water work and tracking abilities are bar none his best working qualities. When taken to a pond, he will search for hours, first all the way around the bank, then second time around in water’s edge through any thicket. He has more determination and drive than we’ve ever seen in this breed. Our favorite aspect about Timo is his temperament. He knows no stranger, and when you meet him don’t be surprised if he jumps up and gives you his infamous “bear hug”. He’s calm and content in the house, lays around on the floor or couch and never barks, and when you get him in the field he turns on and is the ultimate hunting dog. Saying goodbye to this dog the end of 2011 will be very difficult for us, but we’re gracious to Peter and Maxine of Kimmax to give us such opportunity and joys with their boy. We’ve had the pleasure to incorporate him into our breeding program and looking forward to his offspring being as versatile, and a pleasure to be with, as he is.
Timo has already proven himself as an impeccable stud dog by his winning and competitive progeny. He stamps himself on his offspring with his incredibly harsh, correct coat, fabulous front and rear assemblies, and superb temperament. Steady and honest in the field, Timo has proven himself to be a truly versatile dog with excellent features. Timo has made breed history as he’s now one of only 10 GWP’s to earn both a show champion and NAVHDA UT1 titles after being in the US for only 9 months! And finished the coveted Master Hunter title right before his return back to the UK. Timo is without doubt the most accomplished GWP/DD in breed history… GO TIMO!!!!
Timo is owned by Peter and Maxine McCullough of Kimmax GWP’s/DD’s in the United Kingdom, to find more pictures and information of Timo and Kimmax, go to their website www.kimmax.co.uk
