FTW Ffynongain Celt
“Otto”- FTW Ffynongain Celt FTW Ffynongain Celt, call name “Otto” was imported into Texas May April of 2019. Guy and Kelsey had the pleasure of watching Otto run in the 2018 British championship held at the Packington Estate. Though he picked a runner on his first retrieve, a very good start, had an early exit due to taking an extra step at heel when repositioning himself on a walk up. Even with this misstep he caught our eye as the youngest competitor in the field. He was locked onto his handler with an obvious dedication to please whatever his command was. Great tail action an good pace on the outrun we knew he would make a great addition.Otto qualified for the British Championship by winning the Fermanagh Gundog Club Two Day Open Stake for 24 AV
Retrievers, at just 2.5 years old. This stake was graciously
held on the Corrard Estate, who has previously hosted the
Irish Championship, proving to be a great test of driven and
As always we had to go back to the pedigree, first for health,
then for consistency of great dog on the top and more
importantly the bottom line. We were not disappointed.
Ottos mother, Westmacott Gabriella Ffynongain, is a
littermate to FTW Westmacott Gaelic, and FTW Westmacott
Gunner. FTW Westmacott Gaelic was a dog that caught my
eye watching former
British Championships on the Paul French DVDS,, so I was
excited to see lines that I had been wanting now showing up again as something to look for. I also had the
pleasure of watching Westmacott Gaelic compete at the 2019 Skinners Cup for Team Denmark. With only
four dogs not having titles in her 3 generation pedigree, to FTW brothers and fantastic health scores we
couldn’t have drawn a more fantastic female line.
Ottos sire, IR FTCH Ffynongain Razor is a successful dog in his own right attaining his titles in the field.
With a pedigree showing familiar names likeGreenbriar, Garendon, and Morayglen, we knew we had a
With decision made anticipation was high for the arrival
of Otto. Even with the high expectations he has
continued to exceed them. In the house on the second
night he is a shadow wherever I go with him. When
exposed to new things here he readily heeds direction
and then repeats without question. He has duck hunts,
hiking the mountains of the west, raging rapids, goose
fields of the central flyway, and probably the hardest,
are the setups that Guy can dream up.
Definitely one of the most honest and quickest learning
dog I have had the pleasure of handling.
So watch out Otto will be showing up at shows, hunts
and demonstrations all over the country.
