Sileaux is co-owned by Catrina Terry, a waterfowl biologist with Ducks Unlimited in North Dakota. Sileaux is a lucky dog that gets to join her for biological surveys, hunting upland birds, rabbits, waterfowl, turkeys and blood tracking deer.
Sileaux had an exceptional rookie hunting season. He found and pointed 8 species of wild gamebirds in four states. Sileaux hunted hard and covered ground well, and when it came to pointing, he was naturally steady to flush and very in-tune with his handler. This past year, in his second season, Sileaux excelled tracking and pinning prairie birds across North Dakota and Montana and made multiple 300 yard retrieves on crippled running roosters. Sileaux loves retrieving waterfowl and broke ice on his very first duck hunt, he has no issues with the cold windy North Dakota weather. Sileaux had his first litter in 2023 and we are very excited about watching these young prospects grow up.
Sileaux received a maximum score of 112/112 in his NAVHDA Natural Ability test at only 6 months. He then went on to earn 192/204 and a prize 2 in his NAVHDA utility test at 15 months, both with a first-time trainer/handler. In 2023 Catrina ran him in utility again and recieved a max score 204 Prize one qualifying him for the 2024 Navhda Invitational in 2024. Sileaux has been a very biddable and driven dog that’s made training easy and fun. We easily finished him in the AKC conformation ring winning several majors in a row. Sileaux ran in the PNW Field Trial Circuit in the spring of 2023 and was able to get some placements in some tough competition. He also ran in the GWPCA Horseback and was the "reserve" dog at the callbacks for the 45 minute National Amateur championship which is essentially 5th place and very good for such a young dog.
Sileaux is a natural retriever, he loves picking up marks just as much as the Labradors he trains with. Sileaux marks extremely well and doesn't give up on a hunt until he comes up with the bird. He has performed well in retrieving events and received his UKC hunting retriever (HR) title at 15 months old. This test required a double mark and blind on both land and water. Sileaux can go from running a controlled blind with complete focus on the handler to an independent duck search with just a switch of the command. Sileaux earned his first two finished retriever passes towards his hunting retriever champion (HRCH) title he will hopefully complete in 2024.
While Sileaux is a force to be reckoned with in the field he also has an amazing off switch. He loves accompanying his owner to the office where he snoozes on his dog bed and gets lots of pets and patiently entertains himself inside when the harsh North Dakota winter makes it tough to get out.
Sileaux ran and placed in his first Horseback field trials in fall of 2021 and we cannot wait to see how he performs in the future. His sire Duke is a powerful runner and won the Open GWPCA National championship in 2019. Like his sire, Sileaux has long legs and a strong muscular build and sweet friendly temperament.
