Breeders with Kelloggs lines?

Recommended Posts

Since Kelloggs isn't want they used to be after Mayo passed, buying from them isn't a option based on what I heard.

So what breeders in MN and surrounding areas have labs with Kelloggs lines?

Im interested in this as well. I bought a puppy last fall that has kellog on both sides. That isn't the reason I got her but it did help a little. We took her along last fall and she seemed to catch on pretty quickly she even pointed a few which I wasn't expecting to happen so soon.

I new Mayo pretty well. We did business with him in trading pups for printing work. My father and I have had four dogs from him and every one was/is a stud.

My father currently has a male directly from his kennels and is a wonderful dog. Outstanding retriever and pointer. He is a 85 lb yellow male. Flat out great dog and retriever. He had a female just pass away two weeks ago due to age from kelloggs too.

I Have a choc. male thats mother side is basically all kelloggs lines. That is why I got him. He is a machine. Doesn't point but has an unbelievable nose, is super obedient etc and a giant sweetheart. Retrieves hundreds of birds a year. Some have bad things to say about Kelloggs and maybe he wasn't perfect but...his dogs were OUTSTANDING!!

any questions about him or his dogs I may be able to help..as mentioned-got to know him, his mother goldie and his some hugh fairly well.

We have been debating getting all the necessary health clearances for my dad's male to breed him one time. We need one just like him. We have never seen a lab point like he does. Points pheasants while on return with duck in his mouth. Too funny.

I have a pointing lab pup now that goes back to the Kellog black forest and trievan lines that is very smart and easy to train the guy here in mn that breeds this strain is Jr Hines lives over close to brainerd mn his web site is www.mnmaddogkennels.com would check him out if looking for some of the kellog stuff hope this helps.

Hey guys I just bought a pup that is pretty much solid Kellogg lines. I have never trained a pointing lab before and I am curious if you guys have any tips that would help me out? I have had and trained a vizsula so I do have some experience traing a pointer however I was curious if there is anything different that I should be doing.

We bought a dog a couple of years ago whose sire was out of Majestic Oaks. Looking back into that lineage, I see quite a few Black Forest and Trieven dogs as well. Our dog was also VERY easily trained and intelligent as well. We have been very happy with him.

-Training the Pointing Labrador by Julie Knutson:

This is Julie’s new book that was just released this year and adds much more info than her original book (The Pointing Labrador). This book covers from puppy hood to advanced training. Julie helps the trainer get “into” the dogs head to help understand what the dog is thinking, which no other training material I have come across does. One big thing to note is that this book is not just for “Pointing Labs”. This is a good book for any dogs….with it’s primary focus on retrievers. It runs around $50 and is only available from Julie’s site. This book can be found by a Google search for “gunclub-labs”.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
