BDC National Amateur Champion & Amateur Dog of the year
GMPR Swift Creeks Wanna Dip SH ANC
Hot Tub SH x Swift Creek's Lady Guinevere NBDCA CH
is a dog bred by SCL and owned by Michael Wallace of Shawnee KS.
Cope was whelped 12/23/2006. In 2008 Cope went 4 for 5 in AKC
JH passes and 1 for 1 in AKC SH passes. He went 3 for 4 on a HRC
Seasoned title(HR). He passed his APLA CPR on his first attempt
and the APR on the first try just 4 points short of a perfect
score. Cope did all of this before he was 20 months old and did
not start formal hunt test training until he was 17 months old.
He was trained and handled by Mike
Lettau of K&L Kennels. In the spring of 2009 he finished his
HR title and another SH pass. In the fall of 2009 Cope has finished
his AKC Senior Hunter(SH) and his APLA MPR and GMPR as well and
passed his first AKC Master Hunter test with just 9 months of
formal training. While Cope started training late @ 17 months
of age he is among the fastest ever to acccomplish this. Thank
you Mike Lettau for the great work you did with Cope. Early in
2010 the decision was made to run Cope in tournament hunting and
in 3 months 2010 Paula Voorhees handled Cope to the BDC Amateur
Dog of the Year and followed that up by winning the 2010 BDC National
Amateur Champion Flushing Title making Cope one of the most titled
Labradors in America with titles in 5 organizations. In 2011 Cope
placed third in the BDC World Championships while handled by John
Turnquist. In Feb. 2012 Cope and Noah Voorhees won the Youth National
Pheasant Forever & Quail Forever Bird Dog Classic giving him
a third National title as well as titles in 6 different organizations.
He is dual registered with both the AKC and UKC. Cope's hips are
OFA EXCELLENT and elbows are OFA NORMAL. HE is EIC CLEAR. His
CERF is current/normal. Cope is 69 pounds of muscle with great
looks/conformation and disposition. He is laid back in the house
but in the field he has drive and excellent field coverage with
a staunch natural point while handling and marking to perfection.
His pedigree is two of the best pointing lines that exist: GMPR
Wannamaker's Hot Tub SH and Swift Creek's Lady Guinevere NBDCA
CH. Tub is one of the most heavily used GMPR's for stud siring
hundreds of titled pups. Guinevere is an incredible Trieven dog
descended from AFC Trieven Twist and Shout and Trieven Thunderhead
who made the Hall of Fame. She has in excess of 100 all age points.
Cope carries 2 black genes and 2 yellow genes(BBee). Every puppy
he sires will carry at least 1 black and 1 yellow gene. Cope is
available for stud to approved females with a current brucellosis
test. We are proud to have Cope available for stud. He truly represents
what we are trying to produce at SCL. Thank you Mike Wallace and
Mike Lettau /John Koenig of K&L Kennels for all that you have
done with this dog from Swift Creek Labradors.
