We recently put our Black lab to rest.

Now in search of a new pup and want some recommendations for breeders.  (Prefer WI but will go elsewhere).

Looking for a dog that is both a good family dog and is a good hunter.

I did look back thru older posts but some are several years old.


Thanks!

Trying to save a few hundred bucks would be the LAST thing I'd consider in choosing a kennel/pup.

Got a great dog from soggy acres 3years ago. Great on ducks and pheasants. Wonderful at home also. Payed 1200 then. Just look this morning the price jumped up to 1700 now. Thats  a big increase . Well be looking elsewhere.

We are picking up our second pup from soggy acres in less than a month! My first from there is a great bird and family dog.

If any one hears of a lab / Golden retriever mix (Goldador) please send me a message. I will have to be putting down my 2 Goldadors 1, at 6 years because of hip displaysha and the other because of age. I am on my 4th one of this mix and love how they are lab crazy in the field and golden slow in the house.

Thanks in advance

I also recommend Field of Dreams Kennels or at least that blood line.  My old dog was from here,  new one from their stud Finn.

I spoke with Erin's Edge,  I have no opinion really,  but I didn't go with them.

One other breeder that is highly regarded,  small breeder,  one maaaybe two litters a year,  is Preston Labs out of shawano.  Great dogs,  great lines,  tests, 3 health hips/eyes, super people.

http://www.cprestonlabs.com/  They use Field of Dreams for studs.  My current dog is from here.

I think any kennel that is doing the genetic testing for EIC and hips and eyes is probably a good kennel.  if a dog sucks,  it's not because of the dog or breeder,  a dog only learns through training and repetition.  If you train and spend time with a dog,  mutt or pure bred,  it will be a good,  well mannered dog.  If you are inconsistent and don't spend time with it,  it will not be what you are hoping for.

My dog is an intact male,  he doesn't hump things or roam because i trained him to know that's NOT ok behavior. He doesn't mark every tree because i trained that out of him.

There are A LOT of myths when it comes to dog breeds,  dog training and dog behavior.
