We purchased our first yellow female in 1983. It was at that time we decided to start breeding and raising Labradors. We started running our dogs in obedience trails through our local Labrador club then progressed to the show ring and pheasant championships in Iowa and Wisconsin. We then took a break from the show ring and field circuit to raise our children. Our children were the greatest assets in socializing our pups.
I continued hunting our dogs for pleasure without the focus on hunt tests. We continued our breeding program with our females with field trial and AKC hunt test sires.
Our children are now grown and we have now returned to the hunt test fields.
Our 7 year old yellow female is now guiding pheasant hunts in South Dakota with our son. All of our current dogs are AKC and UKC registered.
Our current female earned her SHR title at 16 months, and our 14 month old male earned his SHR title at 10 months and his CPR title at 9 months old.
We are looking for big things from our newest blood lines in our kennel.
I use all of our dogs to guide upland hunts at local hunt clubs.
All of our dogs have a great on/off switch; they turn on the switch in the field and turn it off in our house. Our philosophy is to have dogs that are highly trainable and can be great family companions.
We will be concentrating our current breeding program on developing a pointing lab that you will be proud to hunt with and pleased to have in your home.
