Maria Schaal & Birdie Lou
Dog Trainer // Competition Dog

"GCHB CH Chrishelle's Spectre CD BN RE MH "Birdie Lou" is a 3-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer, who is a gentle "old soul." She is partially retired from AKC Conformation after earning her Bronze Championship (GCHB) with a Sporting Group placement. She will be selectively shown at Specialty shows in the future.

She also earned her Master Hunt title this fall, going 4 for 4 passes at her last double hunt test. She will continue to train and show in Obedience and Rally, we will be working towards her Rally Excellent (RE) and Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) titles. She has always enjoyed the competition environment while traveling with us and meeting new people.

The photo is of me and her enjoying the view at Badlands National Park, from earlier this year - October. She does exceptionally well with children and seniors, so I am going to work on getting her Therapy Dog Certificate so she can start volunteering at nursing homes and hospitals. She excels at heeling both on and off-leash, plus she has a great retrieve."

Their Gear: "We love our J&J molded plastic dumbbell for retrieves, it is the only one she likes. Plus we have a couple of Utility Article sets, and I am hoping to get a jump set for Christmas!"
