Piia asked me to write down some of my thoughts about her dog "Ronja" ; of course I feel honored for her trust.
First some observations about Ronja' s physical appearance :
This passion to work in combination that Piia didn't have the experience nor knowledge in retriever training had lead to that she was very vocal (to my personal taste) when we first met. Especially it was so when she was supposed to honor another dog's work. After systematic training has that defect diminished and almost vanished.
Ronja has a strong desire to please, which means that her trainability is good and she learns new things very fast, but she needs consistency in training (who doesn't ?) so she will not forget as soon as well.
Meanwhile Ronja gets proper training I suppose that she'll learn to relax better between the tasks and thereby she will improve her ability to concentrate on the actual task at hand. And when she does . . . she will have a future in the Finnish Hunt Tests as well. Of course supposed again that Piia has ability to do her homework and develop as a handler along with her dog.

From flat-coat owner Minna Karvinen, Finland:
Ronja has enormous enthusiasm to fetch. She is fast, on land and in water. She doesn't seem to have a problem with the game. One big plus I would give her for not being moody, when working. So you can basically count on her reliability by 100% when you ask her to do something.
About her character, she is a really sweet and affectionate young bitch, who has a big heart for a dog. She obeys well, keeps contact and loves to please you. She has good nerves and the concentration to her tasks is wonderful, as she doesn't pay any attention to the other dogs or people when doing the given task.
