brought to us at Holzinger Kennels (located at the MN Horse and Hunt Club)
in 1995 to be trained as a gun dog for owner Rick Gerth. When I started

perseverance, strong natural point, very trainable, stylish, bold looks,
good bloodlines and an awesome temperament.
Karen and Matt Cashman (co-owners with me in Cashzinger stud dogs) to
consider Raider in the stud dog program. A co-ownership agreement was made
with Rick Gerth to advance Raider's training program; to promote hunting
titles on him and eventually have him become one of our new stud dogs. As
the Cashmans and I went to work, Raider's talents continued to excel as he
went on to acquire his Senior in 5 of 5 passes and Master title in 5 of 5
passes in AKC hunt tests, Master in NAHRA (North American Hunting

Championship - Open Flusher Class Running with me and Todd Haferman.
Raider and I also won the Cabela's Sportsmen's Quest Top Gun Class.

It was an honor to stand next to such a fantastic dog while hunting and
campaigning. His natural abilities live on in the quality offspring he has
produced for us to enjoy. Raider was a great friend,
who will be truly missed but never forgotten. Condolences to Rick Gerth,
