Karat and Jerzi slept through 740 miles travelling to show in Kelso, Scotland and run at the 2019 Kennel Club Working Test at Chatsworth House this weekend. Such different days but both great competitions. Well done to some fantastic winners and thanks to judges, organisers and sponsors for making it all happen. Two wonderful days with friends and their dogs and a fourth for Karat in Open Bitch and third for Jerzi in Open. Ducklings and floating branches added to problems at the water test which made for some interesting reading in the results!
Thankyou so much for all the lovely messages about us loosing Merlot, so very, very kind. They are never replaced but another comes along - how could we not love them all ! Grand daughter Karat does love a sheet from the dryer!

A sad day today at Aytee as we had to say goodbye to our wonderful ‘Merlot’. She has left 15 years of fantastic memories and 4 lovely Aytee daughters and granddaughters. Sleep well Merlot you did us proud XXXXX
So sad to be heading home after saying goodbye to our family in New Zealand including grand daughter Henrietta and Aytee Kimono who is also granddaughter of Ft Ch Aytee Hot Gossip. At both 2 years old it is quite something to see ‘Tarka’ doing her a perfect retrieve and they are such wonderful friends. Perhaps it will be the start of a Kiwi dynasty !
How great it is to share a much loved sport and when it includes GSP’s so much the better! We have been visiting some HPR clubs in New Zealand this weekend while travelling and had marvellous welcomes from the Waikato Gundog Club and Auckland and Regions German Shorthaired Pointer Club . Thankyou so much to Helen Sampson & Gail Blankley for organising for us to visit training sessions and we loved watching your lovely dogs work. Good luck to all those competing at the Champs next week!
It is exactly 2 years since the Aytee GSPs Training Manuals and Youtube Videos were launched and this thankyou message comes all the way from our very first Aytee Trainer in Chile who started with his first dog a GSP called Spotty ! Thankyou so much Felipe for getting us started and we hope that Spotty, who has just had his 2nd birthday, is now doing a great job for you on the Chilean Perdiz !
Aytee GSPs now has over 2000 Youtube subscribers with over 100 Training videos and there are over 1 million minutes viewed as well as over 100 people working their GSPs through our online training manuals. Phew, THANKYOU to everyone and do keep loving, enjoying and training your dogs !
Thanks to the Kennel Club for a wonderful couple of days this weekend at Swinton Estate, Yorkshire training on grouse. The most perfect weather and grounds gave us brilliant game finding conditions. Karat came on in leaps and bounds, literally ! Special thanks to Rory Major - fabulous fun and such worthwhile training, including some unexpected points on the geese !
A wonderful achievement this weekend for Aytee Kalico better known as “Juno” who has passed out as a Search and Rescue Dog and from now on is qualified to assist Norfolk Constabulary as she is on the list of Lowland Air Scent Search and Rescue Dogs. Handler Ian Danks of the RAF has completed a year of basic training followed by a year of Search and Rescue Training and we are very proud that together they have achieved this high level of work. Ian says of Juno, “she is an amazing family member, and an instrumental asset the county now has at its disposal.” We say WELL DONE JUNO !! GO GIRL !!
Well done to all our fab Aytee owners for fantastic season of results and we wish good luck and lots of fun to everyone with any Aytee dog, or pup or youngster for the coming year.…. Some of the Aytee family with their seasons swag !
The last drive of the last day of the season at Tas Valley Shoot today. Enormous thanks to the Bartrum family for a wonderful season’s sport. Its been hugely enjoyable with lots of great memories.
