Bird Dog All Age Derby - Bill Header

A talented young Pointer named “Bill” kicked off his field trial career with a stellar derby season, earning 1,161 points from five points-earning placements at trials across the country to capture the 7th Annual Purina Derby Top Field Trial Bird Dog Award. Bill, who is formally known as Dogwood Bill, bested nearly 60 dogs also earning Purina points toward the final standings for the 2018-2019 season. Bred by Clint Hutchinson of Albany Georgia, Bill is co-owned by George and Cindy Watkins with Ben and Jessica Stringer, all of Boston, Georgia.  

“Bill is a smart dog and consistent bird finder with a bright future ahead of him. He wants to work for you, not against you,” says Jamie Daniels of Bronwood, Georgia, who handled the 2-year-old male during his derby season. “It’s a major honor to win a single championship, let alone the Purina Derby Top Field Trial Bird Dog Award. It takes a tremendous team to accomplish this feat.” 

Bill is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
