Trainer’s Report Summer 2011

Well it’s summer training season.  Seems like it was just mid trial season!  Things are really moving along here at midnight kennel.  We are busy with our summer gundog training program.  Several new gun dogs are here this year and all are benefiting from our capable staff led by Art Bruno and new comer Mike Nemshick.


Elhew Stepping Out

We are also very exited about our young derby dogs led by Doug Harris’s new hopeful Elhew Stepping Out.


He is destined to be a big time winner for sure.  Several old friends stopped by this summer including Leo Plenski from Florida, the Romeo family from North Carolina and Chris Rarich from New York.


Urban's Wicked Tina







Chris’s dog Urban’s Wicked Tina, along with Cas Tiny, owned by Jim Castagna and Blackhawks Headliner
owned by Ted Smith should be contenders this fall.


Blackhawks Headliner






Finally we want to acknowledge Dave Murphy for once again letting us train dogs on his incredible property.   Dave is a master cover producer for grouse and woodcock and this year we have the grounds chalked full of young pheasants.   It should be one heck of a great summer!
