Tamarack Kennels

Has anyone ever got a pointing lab from Tamarack kennels in Melrose? What do you think of his dogs?

OTCBigBass - Tamerack Kennels is top notch. Tried to get a dog from him last year, had to settle for a yellow from a litter that was sired by one of his dogs.

You will not be disappointed.

I got interested in his kennel thru a hunting buddy of mine.

If your looking for a "classic lab" (big/good sized body, blocky head, easy going, great hunting ability - and a pointing lab to boot) look no further.

Chuck is first class.

I picked up my dog there in November 2007. I am very happy with my dog, and will definately be getting my next dog there as well. If you have any more questions, let me know.

I am hoping to get my next pup from Tamarack as well. Everything that I have heard about them as been positive and it sounds like they are breeding "big boy" labs.

has anyone hunted over a pointing lab? I love labs for duck hunting and like hunting upland over a pointer but have never hunted with a pointing labs. Do they point like a traditional pointer?

OTCBigBass - The lab that I have (pointing) points like a traditional pointer. He retrieves like a traditional lab when I'm hunting waterfowl.

So far I'm impressed with his ability out in the field. He's one year old and has had over 40 water retrieves and pointed numerous pheasants from the 2008 hunting season. He's proving to be a better dog than my 2 yr old chocolate lab as time goes on.

The one thing that I worry is going on with pointing labs is the reduced gene pool that is being used so much. I have seen problems with bad traits being passed along through the lines.

Before you buy I would ask him if he has ever tested for EIC that has been showing up in a lot a labs,it is a simple blood test done by the U of Minnesota.
