Moose Pekar of Greendale, MH (left) is a handsome, well built dog who weighs about 75 pounds.  He has an easy going house personality and is a highly trainable gun dog.  In running his AKC hunt tests he passed 5 for 5 tests in the Senior and 5 for 5 in the Master.  He has natural talents for the field which include marking abilities and a great nose.  We strive to produce pups that have this combination of intelligence, natural talent, trainability and house disposition.  The looks is a plus.  Moose is the son of Locked 'N' Loaded's Down and Dirty, MH  (Mud).  Elma's last litter was with Mud and had great reviews from that litter.  Owner reviews from that litterl.

Dam: Lorken's Return to Sender "Elma" (2nd photo) is a nice looking dark chocolate dog weighing about 70 pounds.  She has a wonderful house personality and is very intelligent, friendly and responsive to people.  She has a very nice pedigree for field work and health certifications. Her father is a littermate to the famous chocolate named FC-AFC-CFC-NCAFC Upon the Wings of an Answered Prayer "Ammo" and he has an open win toward his FC/AFC title along with a Master Hunter title.  Elma has a great nose and desire in the field.  Elma enjoys working our 90 acre property and ponds as well as her daily runs and walks.  She is a very enjoyable dog and traced back to our earlier breedings with Lorken's Elma Good and NFC-AFC's Riptide Star (Rascal).

We would expect pups from this litter to be healthy, nice looking, have natural field talents, be trainable and most of all a wonderful house companion.

Get more information about HOW TO READ PEDIGREES AND TITLES  More can be found on the trials and tests page


Briefly the Hunt test titles appear after the name of the dog.  These are titles given to a dog for achieving a standard of simulated hunting performance.  Any dog that meets the required level in a Hunt Test will earn a ribbon toward  a title as opposed to only 1 dog in the Field Championships taking a 1st place.  Hunt test titles do not differentiate whether a professional or amateur handler runs the dog.
AKC titles are highligted in yellow and National titles in brown

JH = Junior Hunter.  Requires basic retrieves of singles (one shot bird) to hand. 
SH = Senior Hunter.  Requires dog be steady to shot, retrieves double marks to hand, capable of running blinds to retrieve birds the dog has not seen fall by taking commands and hand signals, ability to handle diversion shot birds, hidden guns.
MH = Master Hunter.  Requires ability to handle multiple shot birds at once as well as all of the Senior Hunter requirements.  Generally the tests will set up much more difficult situations than the Senior.
MHR = For dogs that earn 5 Master tests in a year they are able to run the Master National Test.  If a dog passes a Master National test at least 2 times, it earns the MHR title.

UKC titles
SHR = Started Hunting Retriever.  Dog earns 10 pts at started level and 2 additional test
HR = Hunting Retriever.  Dog must earn 40 points with 50 from Seasoned or Finished level
HRCH = Hunting Retriever Champion.  Dog acquires 100 points with 60 of them at the finished level.


GMRH Grand Master Hunting Retriever (Highest NAHRA award and similar to the AKC Hunt Tests). UKC title earned from achieving 220 points at the Finished level and 80 points from HRC.


The Field Championship titles appear before the name.  They are AKC's competitive Field work titles-simulating hunting.  Similar to the Hunt Tests but usually much further distances and more demanding tests.  (We generally breed to Field Trial dogs because they are the best of the best due to the competitive nature of the test and need for intelligence and trainability.)
Derby Points = Competitive tests run for dogs under 2 years of age.  Points awarded for placements.


AAQ = All Age Qualified. This is not a title but indicates a dog has earned either a 1st or 2nd place in the Qualifying event and is now capable of running the FC or AFC events.
FC = Field Champion, can be handled by either a professional trainer or an amateur handler.
AFC = Amateur Field Champion, dog can only be handled by an amateur person, usually the owner of the dog.
Points are awarded for placements.  At least one win is required and then the accumulation of enough points for the title.
NFC = National Field Champion, only 1 dog per year earns this title - a sort of Super bowl playoff between top dogs of the year.
NAFC = National Amateur Field Champion, same as NFC above but handled by an Amateur person.

CANADIAN Field Trial Titles


The letter "C" in front of the above titles indicate the same titles except that they are Canadian titles and not American. 


Lorken Guarantee
Lorken Farms provides a written health guarantee for 2 years 2 months on the hips (OFA approval) x-ray without the use of anesthesia.  Pups will have dewclaws removed, have first shots, be home socialized and exposed to game farm birds or wings.  We provide a starter sample package of puppy chow along with a written record of shots, worming schedule and veterinarian exam.  AKC papers are for full registration.  You do not need to use the name Lorken in your pup's registered name but we will sign approval if you wish to use it. 

Note: no pup from this litter will have EIC or CNM because both parents need to be carriers and NEITHER are carriers.  Hips cannot be genetically controlled to a definite extent, but one needs to do their best to be aware of any dogs that have hip dysplasia since they would simply be more likely to possibly throw this disorder.  One cannot completely eliminate this issue with genetic testing like they can with EIC and CNM but we have used dogs that are either Excellent or at least Good hip conformation just to try to do our best to breed around that genetic possibility.  One should always feed their dog a good dog food and to avoid accidents and rough activities while the bones are still growing.

Deposits being accepted to reserve a pup.
