lab breeder

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a lab and have done all the searches but seems the more I talk to people the more smaller places I can find. Just need some general info, no links, names or numbers would be great. I would like to pick one up early July preferably ivory male.

Thanks

my only suggestion is to go with a reputable breeder, not a newspaper pup for $50. otherwise you are taking a chance on hunting family history and health

My dog is from a Dokkens Oak Ridge Kennel. They are located in Northfield and I am very pleased. If you do a search on google you will find them. You also may want to send a PM to Todd Caswell I know he could point you in the right direction.

Good Luck!

I do know of a nice all yellow litter born a couple days ago, nicely bred health clearences, both gun dogs sire has HT titles and resonably priced, don't know if there dark or light, when you select for a shade of color you really paint yourself into a corner and your basing you search on eye appeal VS performance and health.

If interested text me your info and I can forward you the litter info..

I have had pups from both Smith Farms Labradors and Whispering Pines Labradors and would recommend both. They each have web sites with a lot of information.

My 5 month old lab is from KT British Labs in Elbow Lake. So far very happy with the dog (if you are looking for that type of pedigree).

We have 2 from Whispering Pines as well.

Zero complaints with the owners or the dogs. Awesome!

The one in my avatar is one of them.

Do you want an English or American lab? I have only worked with American labs, but that's my preference. I hunt both waterfowl and upland. I have sourced a dog from a fellow hunter and my last one was from a breeder. Hope to get her out to some hunt tests later this fall and see how she does.

    • Yeah, the last couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful at my feeders. Then all of sudden today I was bombarded with multiple species!    I had 2 hen pheasants pecking around, then later the rooster showed up. There were robins everywhere. The blue jays are back to eating up the peanuts within minutes of me putting them out. I’ve actually been saving money the last couple weeks on sunflower chips, because the goldfinches disappeared. But today I had redpolls out there for the first time of the season. So I’ll have to start working some overtime to afford the food they go through! Have a lot more woodpeckers this winter than last year as well.
    • 🤣 man leech go chase some cottontails.   Man that was funny!
    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
