We purchased Gera in the summer of 2007. We raised/trained Gera for the first 15 months of her life. We ran her through the VJP, the Hunting Aptitude Evaluation (HAE), and a NAVHDA Natural Ability Test in the spring of 2008. We then continued training Gera throughout the summer before running her in the Advanced Hunting Aptitude Evaluation (AHAE).
Gera was a very sweet and mellow girl. We did not feel like she was a breeding quality dog so we placed her in a new home shortly after her AHAE. She now lives in northern Wisconsin and enjoys a very active grouse hunting life.
