2017 News !!

Bhulisa dogs had a great year in Field Trials and in SAVHDA tests! We’d like to brag a little about them……

In Field Trials:


The Big News was Bhulisa Snipe, who became both an HPR Field Trial Champion and a British Breed Field Trial Champion! In the process, she also garnered enough points to become the #1 HPR Field Trial Dog of the Year! “Purdey” is owned and loved by Brandon and Gill Polley.

This year marked the Inaugural HPR National Championship, which was a huge event on the trialing calendar! We are honoured to have had 9 dogs qualify for this event; with 6 of these in attendance. Of particular note were the 3 littermates who qualified: Flight, Ella and Silver. These girls are from the litter bred by Arnold Slabbert: Brysons Bhulisa Hun x  Bhulisa Vallkyrie. Three of Arnold’s dogs qualified, but only 2 entered: Flight (Gamehunters Gwaihir) and KC (Bhulisa Lemm).  Rooies Dorland was very unlucky not to be able to run KC’s brother, FT Ch Bhulisa Busch (Stuka), who was injured shortly before the event. Congratulations to Arnold and KC, who came in 3rd Place in the National Championship!

Our dogs won 2 of the 4 HPR Open Stakes, also taking 2 second places and 2 third places in the Open Stakes, and won one of the British Breed Championship Stakes. The dogs also took 3 of the 4 Gun’s Choice awards in the HPR trials.

SAVHDA Tests

Our dogs have done well in SAVHDA testing, showing their true Versatility!

www.savhda.co.za


SAVHDA (the South African Versatile Hunting Dog Association) is a relatively new association dedicated to performance testing of the Versatile/HPR breeds. The Tests are based on German testing systems in use in Europe and the USA. SAVHDA is a very exciting development on the Versatile/HPR scene!! It allows a detailed assessment of the Versatile dog's abilities in the field on natural game, and tests the retrieving and mental capabilities fully!

The Junior Versatile Hunting Test (JVHT) is basically a Natural Ability Test. This test is exactly the same as the NAVHDA test and very similar to the German natural ability test (JVP). Dogs must be 16 months of age or less to enter the JVHT.

The Novice Hunting Test (NHT) is more advanced and tests the basic capabilities of the Versatile dog.

The Advanced Versatile Hunting Test (AdVHT) or Older Dog Versatile Hunting Test (OVHT) is exactly the same as the German Solms or the HZP, which are the breed tests for the versatile dogs in Germany. OVHT is the designation for dogs that are tested when older than 2 years of age. It is a demanding test of the Versatile dog!

Friday, 12 June 2015 13:35
Stuka (Bhulisa Busch) has made history by becoming SA's first Dual Champion! His recent win in the Western Cape HPR Open Stake is his 2nd Open win, therefore making him an HPR Field Champion. He also won the Gun's Choice at this trial! Just a few weeks later, he traveled to the Eastern Cape to run in the Border British Breed trials, and together with his partner Eva, won the prestigious Brace Stake. A huge congratulations and thanks to Rooies Dorland for all his hard work and development of this dog. Not only that, he is also a valued training partner for myself and other club members! CONGRATS :)

FT Ch and Ch Bhulisa Busch

“STUKA”

South Africa’s 1st HPR Dual Champion!!

 

·   Field Trial Champion

·   Breed Champion

·  Top HPR Gundog


Proudly owned, trained and handled by

Dr Rooies Dorland !!

Stuka is an outstanding German Shorthaired Pointer that exemplifies the quality and versatility of the breed.

From a very early age, he was finding birds, as were his littermates. Dedicated hunters, they are also retrievers with the never-give-up perseverance so valued in the breed, both on land and in water.

Drive, nose, pointing, retrieving,  water love, and biddability are ensured through a focussed and highly selective breeding programme since 1995. Additionally, selection for soundness, temperament, conformation and breed type add to the package.

Stuka is a dog that would make anyone a proud owner and wingshooter no matter where or what you hunt in South Africa. His sister, KC, is also a Field Trial winner and outstanding GSP. They are typical of what we strive for at Bhulisa -  and consistently achieve.

Silver wins 3rd Place in her first Open Stake
Friday, 12 June 2015 13:21
Silver (Gamehunters Mithral) won 3rd place in her first Open Stake at the Greylingstad HPR Trial under extremely difficult scenting and hunting conditions! I am very proud of this performance from this young and relatively inexperienced girl :)  She has an outstanding nose and is fast and pleasing to watch, easy to handle. It has not been all easy sailing, however, and her early training was compromised by my own personal circumstances. She is catching up, though!! She is a full sister to Arnold Slabbert's Flight (Gamehunters Gwaihir) who was Dog of the Year in 2014. We could not be happier with the results of this breeding between Attila (Brysons Bhulisa Hun - imported USA) and Storm (Bhulisa Vallkyrie)!

First year just hunting and having fun on birds!


Steadying on pigeons began late last year (it's not always easy!)

KC wins Certificate of Merit and Gun's Choice in the Greylingstad HPR Trials!
Friday, 12 June 2015 13:14
KC (Bhulisa Lemm) owned by Arnold Slabbert, won both a Certificate of Merit and the Gun's Choice Award at the Greylingstad HPR Trial Open Stake. This was a very tough trial with extremely difficult scenting and conditions, and KC had 2 finds and hunted like a star, and had a very tough retrieve which she managed like the outstanding retriever she is! CONGRATS!!




 
Eva wins awards in all trials entered so far!
Friday, 12 June 2015 12:51
Eva (Bhulisa Stormberg) is having a good year! So far she has won an award in each of the 4 trial entered, with a Certificate of Merit in the Western Cape HPR Open Stake and in the WC BB trial Championship Stake, a Certificate of Merit in the Greylingstad HPR trial, and 1st Place in the Border British Breed Brace Stakes with Stuka! Eva is owned, trained and handled by Dr Rooies Dorland. CONGRATS!!!!




 
"Flight" is the HPR Dog of the Year!
Monday, 27 October 2014 14:24


Arnold Slabbert's "Flight" (Gamehunters Gwaihir) is the #1 HPR Dog of the Year for 2014!! She garnered this award with a number of Derby Stake wins, a Maiden Stake win and 2 placings in Open Stakes in different trials throughout the year. She managed this before the age of 2, and has shown that she is a true and outstanding versatile dog, having mastered a variety of environments and bird species  - in a winning way! Flight is usually one of the top gamefinders when we are hunting, and has an awesome nose inherited from her dam, Bhulisa Vallkyrie (Storm). Her sire, Brysons Bhulisa Hun (Attila), contributes to a very trainable and honest package. Flight will hunt and retrieve ALL day and never lets down! Huge Congratulations to Arnold and well done on this super breeding!

KC wins multiple awards in the Open Stakes this year
Monday, 27 October 2014 14:20
"KC" (Bhulisa Lemm) won a 2nd in the Tvl HPR Bushveld trial Open Stake in August, and also won a COM in the WCFTC Open Stake in May. She is tied overall for #5 in the 2014 HPR Field Trial Rankings. Congratulations to owner Arnold Slabbert! Watch for an exciting litter with KC in the near future.
