Brier is loved and cared for by Darcie Godwin and co-owned with NorthLink. He ran his NAVHDA Natural Ability test, handled by Darcie, in September 2017 and earned himself a Prize I 107! He also earned his Novice Shooting Dog title with the WCA, handled by April. In the spring of 2018, he finished 2 of 3 FDJ legs with amazing scores - 94 and 98, with both legs completed on the same day (Update: Darcie handled him to his 3rd leg in May 2019 with a score of 98!). Brier spent summer 2018 at bird camp in North Dakota with Nikolaus Scharpf. In the fall of 2018, Nikolaus handled him to multiple Derby placements, including a 4th in the National Field Futurity in Ardmore, OK. Brier also made the WCA Top 10 Derby list. A severe bacterial infection saw him sidelined earlier this year, but we are excited to say he is back in full form, ready to take on a year of fun and training.
Brier has a wonderful, easy-going temperament. He's a goofy boy, but in the field, he's got a really smart ground application and a ton of point. Field work is absolutely where he shines.
