GB FTCH Riverview Farm Finalist "Brainy"

Out of FTW Kelmagra Brooke Of Caytonfell by Int.FTCH Ragweed’s Travel.

Brainy is a son of the one and only Int. FTCH Ragweed’s Travel. Travel’s offspring clearly shows why he is one of the best producers one could have. Just to name a few of his offspring: Int. FTCH Beileys Aguzannis and Int. FTCH Asterix Aguzannis, both IGL Championship winners (2015/2016), and Int. FTCH Ragweeds Greedy. Brainy’s dam is FTW Kelmagra Brooke Of Caytonfell. She was trained and trialed by Mark Domain (UK), a machine in the field but the cutest calmest member of our house dogs. 

We are very proud of Brainy.  He is the FIRST dog ever born and bred in the US which was made up to a British Field Trial Champion. Furthermore, qualified for the IGL Retriever Championship 2021. 

Since Spring 2022 he is back in our kennel. Before he was based in Scotland with our trainer Kevin and he describes him as follows: 

"As his name suggests he is a thinker! A true gentlemen, a gentle giant with a kind nature. His conformation is one of strength; when used it allows him to cover ground with a look of ease. From early on in his training it was clear that he had a natural hunting ability with a certain unique style. A style that only can be explained as if you were watching an older experienced dog work on a grouse moor but made more special with his style and fast tail action. A dog that also loves to run, he is great at keeping his line regardless of what in his path. Throughout his training he has shown me the way he thinks, working the wind and using all of his senses, not just his nose, has enabled him to pull off some of the best retrieves I have ever seen. He also won in his first season and I am really looking forward to running him next season in Open trails.“ January 2020

Available for studs in the UK. Frozen semen available in the US.
