Sh Ch Plainfire’s The Captain of My Heart Is Steelriver



When he came to UK in 2018 as a junior, he won his class at his first 2 championship shows and also RCC at the second show which gave him lifetime Crufts qualification.  He has been winning consistently since then, including more RCCs and groups/RBIS at open shows. He was the first Flatcoat to win the KC award Show Certificate of Excellence for open show wins. He won his first CC in august 2019 at 2 and a half years old, his second with Best In Show at NEFRA breed championship show a few months later then the pandemic came in early 2020 so he had to wait until the shows started again to complete his UK Show Champion title.  He did this at his second show weekend back in the ring winning  CC and BOB at United Retriever Club championship show and was the first Flatcoat to become champion after lockdown finished. Jason is the first Swiss Flatcoat to gain the UK show champion title.He has been the FR club of Scotland top winning dog 2019 and 2021( not awarded 2020). He has BIS and RBIS awards at breed club championship and open shows. At the end of 2021 he had 6CCs and 7RCCS, he started 2022 winning his class at both championship shows in January and also CC and BOB at Manchester so now has 7CCs.

Today 25 years ago a „Dream came true“ the first Plainfire’s litter was born... I want to thank to everybody around me, who helped me to realise and continue this „project“ over all these years, to go on after some very sad but also many very happy moments. Breeding for me is a passion, it has never been selling puppies and earning money. It has become a very important part of my life, with good and bad times, with great friendships and deep disappointments..... And still there is this motivation and this deep feeling for my dogs, every day to be surrounded by my best for legs friends with their wagging tails, always lucky and enthusiastic ❤️... I want to thank first of all to all of them for their company and loyality, but then also to the human beings, who gave me their support.... These are Dominque, my older daughter and Co-breeder, Yvonne Jaussi my best friend and mentor, Sandra Stevenson, my soul sister from Scotland, my ex-partners, who shared their years with my dogs and me, my younger daughter Nadia, my „Show team“, all my English and Scandinavian friends and Renate, my kennel mate, who has always been the most loyal person in my house, thank you all
