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 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. Sileaux has been a very biddable and driven dog that’s made training easy and fun. We are running Sileaux in Utility again in June 2022 and then working on getting him and AKC conformation championship title.
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 will continue to campaign for his hunting retriever champion (HRCH) title in spring 2022.
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 2022 field trial season. 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. His dam Blue is one of the best dogs we have ever bred and comes from the very successful Bone Point stud crossed with a gritty Blue Collar dam. Blue has been a very solid producer in her litters with an average score of 110.9/112.
