Dutch is a joy to live with (although a bit of a couch hog), he has an extremely sweet and biddable disposition that shines through wherever he goes. As temperament is extremely important to us, we couldn’t be more thrilled with his demeanor. When he is not competing in the show ring, he enjoys visiting his many friends at the memory care unit at a local Assisted Living facility.
Dutch has had an amazing show career. Dutch earned his first point in the six to nine month class and completed his championship at the age of 15 months with back to back majors. He has taken us on many grand adventures with multiple breed and group placements. To date, Dutch has had numerous specialty wins, a Reserve Best In Show, and four Best in Show wins.

My first AOM went to GCHS Davris Tabatha’s Dutch. This boy completed a gorgeous trio of great Stud Dogs with my BOS and Select Dog. Although those three males are very different in type, they are all in their way , so magnificent and top quality Labrador males. Dutch is a tribute to the late amazing breeder Carol Heidl.
Bred by Christina Hodge and Carol Heidl, he is owned by Dave Hodge. He was beautifully shown by the well known handler Rusty Howard .
