Here's what Paul at Hurricane Kennel has to say about Hank:

I trained Hank through his Trained Retrieve and Utility Test.  This guy is a real stud.  He is stunning to watch work the field or water and retrieve.  He is very serious about his job and is willing to work hard while maintaining an enjoyment in the field you can see in his eyes.   Hank is well mannered and cooperative.

Hank picks up on training at an alarming rate.  He was steady to birds through the flush, shot, and fall within a three days of starting his steadiness work and has maintained his skills to this day.   I last saw Hank and shot birds over him in October 2019 and it was awesome to watch him on birds and see he has retained his skills during his time off from training.  His point is impressive and holds birds with an intensity bird hunters love to see. 

If you're looking for a high quality stud dog to compliment your female, Hank is definitely a stud you want to consider.  Hank calls Owatonna, MN home and despite his Wisconsin upbringing he is a Vikings fan I guess as seen in the picture to the left.  I guess you can't ask for everything.   Feel free to contact Angie or I if you have questions concerning Hank's training.

Here's what the Owners had to say about Hank:
Hank is a handsomely marked liver and roan GSP. He stands 26 inches and weighs 60-62 lbs. His parents are VC Top Tier’s Hurricane Chloe MH and INT CH VC Sharp Shooters Ladies Man “Chappie”. Both parents have successfully established themselves in several testing venues and Hank is gifted with their many qualities in the field, on the water, as well as in the home.  His outstanding natural ability and intelligence compliment his strong desire and cooperation.

Hank thrives under the pressures of training as was seen when he passed his UT Test with a 201 Prize 1 at the young age of 27 months. Hank's passion for training and work helps him learn each skill quickly.

In the field, Hank gives you 100% all day. He has a no-quit attitude! He will hunt in any cover with gusto and confidence!  Hank thrives in the water as well as the field and turns it on when its time to retrieve a duck on water! This was witnessed by many during the duck search at his Utility Test in August of 2019.

In the home, Hank is mild mannered, obedient, respectful and playful. A real big momma’s boy! He enjoys snuggling on your lap as much as he enjoys chasing down the ball you just threw him. He has captivating eyes that will melt your heart with a  great temperament and big heart. A true companion that is your best buddy and constant companion.

Hank is now available for stud to approved females. For more information contact Nicole Peterson at or 507-456-7728.
