Finn x Holly

Finn has bred Yaqui’s Holly for the Assistance Dog Institute/Bergin University. Holly is a good-looking, laid-back golden with a solid structure and a willing temperament. Her pedigree is a highly outcrossed combination of American conformation and field lines with English, Canadian, and Australian CH lines. We hope this breeding will produce a healthy litter of future service dogs!  Holly whelped 6 pups via C-section just after midnight on August 24, 2010 — 3 M and 3 F, all weighing in over a pound and all healthy, as is Mom! Welcome to the “D” litter!

Puppies at Bergin University begin “learning how to learn” at a very early age! Here is Darren at just 4 weeks old working with Sae.

First retrieve!

I don't think the puppy kisses need to be taught....

Christine and I evaluated the litter at 8 weeks, and here are some pix:
