Bitches - Isla

Field Trial and Open Test Winner
Spinnakeu Feather of Mekoro - Isla
FTCH Brindlebay Butler x FTW Chatston Harmony Spinnakeu

Isla is a very clever dog with an independent attitude. Her character is quite strong willed but with a very caring eagerness to please attitude, making her quite tricky to train in some respects. She has clear marking skills and a fantastic hunting ability, which is lovely to watch as she is extremely stylish. Isla has an enormous amount of drive and is very punchy when sent out for a retrieve. Another natural ability shown by this dog is straight lines, I often marvel at the way she takes a line and will keep consistently straight for so long. Among other things Isla certainly has a specialty for finding the wing-tipped runners or the wounded partridge sat tightly in the hedge with many of the most difficult retrieves completed by Isla.

Isla has now retired from both competing and litters.
