Lab Breeder Recommendations
« on: October 05, 2017, 12:59:39 PM »
Hello Forum.

After a few years of hiatus I'm getting back into Duck/Upland hunting and am hoping for some recommendations on a good Lab Breeder.

I'm located in Eastern Washington but any part of the start will do if you have had great experience with a good breeder.

I got Maggie from Cougar Creek Labs in Arlington. Great dog- quiet & mellow around the house, great with kids & she was hell on birds when she was young. Iíll get another from there.

Laura Nordberg who is located in Boise area has a real nice litter on the ground right now. Look her up on Facebook or PM me for cell number.

I know of a nice little year+ old pup from a good breeding with a full winter and summer of training by Jim Gonia for sale for around $5K. Probably has $10K of training. Very nice disposition and sweet female. For about double the price of a good pup you could have one that is almost handling and had more birds killed for it than the average 3-4 year old hunting dog.

Ford x Chic puppy.

Thanks guys, I found a pup, male, block head, strong shoulders, big feet.

I'll have to be handling the training myself, but a damn, good looking, little pup.

I recently did a lot of scouting to find a new lab.  Ended up here & happy I did.
