NorthWest K9's Frenke is a medium large, tightly coupled and darkly pigmented 2-year-old male of 75 pounds. With outstanding temperament and character, Frenke is a bright, confident, self-right dog with ready rebound. An energetic, agile, and biddable young dog bringing super play drive and enthusiasm to the training.

Physically pushy and mouthy; highly driven in foundation tug work, firing up quickly and giving voice readily.

A natural retriever. Facility to commands sit, down, heel, crate, wait, come out, leave it, brings, give, watch it/take it, go find. Responds enthusiastically to ball, tug, food, and praise reward.

Foundation Schutzhund-style footstep tracking with arcing turns on grass shows a methodical approach to the track with natural nose-down tracking. Wilderness master mantrailing demonstrates pronounced hunt and a highly driven commitment to the find with ground tracking and trailing predominant.

Neutral to all manner of surfaces and heights. Gunsureness tested. A natural in water, including retrieve in water. House and crate trained; good in the kennel; travels well.

High octane in the training, yet settles readily when required. A highly companionable, lively dog showing promising potential for service training and performance with the working handler experienced with a very drivey, energetic young male. Neutered; dentition to standard; vaccinations current; microchipped; health guarantee.
