Misty Passed away on October 14 2013. She was one of the greatest and most accomplished dogs Trailrunners has ever owned. As for her working accomplishments, she titled Master National 3 consecutive years, AKC Wisconsin Master National in 2004, AKC Texas Master National 2005 and CKC Canadian Master National Ontario in 2006, Misty also has 18 AKC Master Hunt Weekend passes in the tough Texas circuit. She had "Excellent" rated hips and eyes "normal", meaning she passed these qualities on to her progeny, one of which is Trailrunners Trouble who is now passing these great qualities on to her pups at Trailrunners. Trailrunners Rook is also out of Misty, he is working as a companion and hunting dog for a family now.

Here are some tributes to her from her original owner/trainer and the family that cared for her in her retirement.
Red Wilkinson -
"Of the many dogs I have trained over 30 to 40 years, Misty was in a select group
It was indeed an honour to sit beside her in a hunting blind or at the line in a hunt test.
Misty turned heads wherever she went in hunting dog competitions all over
North America. Her pinpoint accuracy on marks and trainability on blinds brought
applause and admiration. Rest in peace Misty--you were one of the best."
Larry and Judy Krakalovich -
"Misty was an exceptional dog both in her career with Trail Runners and her retirement with us. She impressed many with her training and character. On walks around town she would walk tight off leash, including sitting and waiting off leash in front of the post office, and enjoyed visiting with passing people. She was trained not to bark, if we were slow in getting up, she would drum her tail onto the closet door. She still enjoyed hunting and retrieving, and would eagerly ride on my quad or our boat. She was loved by our family who will remember and miss her."
We train ALL BREEDS for all issues including aggression, anxiety, "hyperness", and general disobedience.
Your dog gets expert training, and once the training is complete, we then teach the dog owner how to handle their "new" highly trained dog.
