Chuy is an awesome "Dog man" working a great line of Llewellins. Proud to have him as a colleague!
Gray's Gun Dogs
Good people to work with and well bred dogs. Chuy spends time with them to make them great hunting dogs.
I have a Jack-Jess puppy from their 2017 litter and it was my first time buying a dog from Chuy. Maggie is 7 months old now and I couldn’t be more happier with her.
I started field training Maggie at age 4 months and from the moment I started training her on pen raised birds I’ve been amazed by her natural ability at finding birds. I’ve never seen a dog with a nose as good as her’s and she has always been steady to wing. It made it easy to train her and all I’ve done is reinforced and encouraged that natural ability.
I’ve had her in the field now 4 times since the opening of the season and she has done exceptional. She has drive and stamina. She loves to hunt and she’d keep hunting if I’d let her. Most of the time she ranges out to about 50-70 yards. She sometimes ranges further up to 100-150 yards, but I only have to tone her with the e-collar to get her reeled back in until she learns how far she needs to range. She’s smart and picks up on things quickly. Once she learns what she has to do she’s very obedient at doing it. She really hasn’t required much e-collar stimulation at all and when I have used it she responds very well to it with no negative reaction to it.
Gun conditioning took very little time and I never saw any negative reaction during acclimation phases. Last weekend was spent teaching her to honor. After the first training session she had it down and was honoring point for all the following sessions. She quarters well in the field and is methodical in how she hunts.
After meeting Chuy and going to his house I can tell you that he does this out of passion for the sport and for the love of the breed and his dogs and he has set up a very solid breeding program. I can’t wait to see his future litters out of some of his new dogs too and I will definitely be buying more dogs from him in the future.
I think one of the neatest things about Chuy is, not only does he produce beautiful and great bird dogs, but he has always been interested in seeing and hearing how Maggie’s been doing and is always willing to give advice.
The last two years I've had the privilege of hunting quite a few miles with Chuy & his pups. Very impressed with his pups & how he handles them. His pups HUNT and we always look forward to those days & the awesome dog work. Chuy has the training touch as well. Pups respond to him and he has the ability to read them and that makes a great trainer! Great job Chuy!
