Puppy Toast

MACH2 Emberain Coppertop Toast

GRCA Agility Dog Hall of Fame


  Born on September 5, 2000

Toast is offered at stud to approved bitches - contact Ed & Edwina Ryska at Emberain

Toast lives with Ed and Edwina Ryska along with his big sister, Biscuit, and the rest of the Emberain Golden Retriever crew in Petaluma, CA. His current focus is field training, where he is in joyful pursuit of Master Hunter legs with his dad, Ed. Mom Edwina will do agility and obedience with Toast when she can pry Ed's hands off of him. Evidently she is a good pry-er because Toast's agility debut was a resounding success--he went 6 for 6 to earn all his legs in both Novice Standard and Novice JWW with first places on all 6 legs! He continued to gain prowess in the agility ring, quickly completing all levels from Novice through Excellent, and is now a MACH dog.

  • Won the puppy stake at his first field trial
  • WC earned on first try in the spring of 2002
