Need new dog!

7 posts in this topic

Hey all....my fiance's dads dog died about a month ago in his sleep. She was only 4 years old and a great companion and hunting dog. He's in the market now for a new one so we can have her/him ready for next fall's pheasant hunting season...he wants a high quality dog so I'm making a post on here to get some advice from all you FMers about the best places to buy and train a quality dog. THANKS ALL!!

Some of the best dogs in the state of Minnesota come out of Round Lake Kennels. When the Bush and Cheny go to SD to hunt thats whos dogs they bring. I bought a puppy out of that kennel this summer and had him hunting at 6 months and he did fantastic. I've never owned a dog that is so easily trained. The genetics that come out of their are just crazy. I would highly recomend them.

If interested, we are looking for a new home for our 2 yr old female golden lab. She is a great dog. We curently live in the country and are moving into town soon and would like to find a home for her. I am not a hunter but a friend that knows our dog thinks she would be easy to train. She is 3/4 lab, 1/4 retriever. If interested I can send you a picture.

a lab for sure....and I'm actually from worthington...I know of the Round Lake Kennels and I don't think Thad is training dogs anymore...his last dog was trained there and he does a good job...but as far as I'm aware he doesn't train anymore...anyway....he would like to get a lab....

Check the Puppies/Dogs/Breeding Service For Sale - Hunting Dogs forum. wink

If they don't have what you are looking for there you may want to check out Smith Farms Labradors. They are in Grove City which is a little ways from Worthington but they are worth the drive.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
