Here is a photo of Taylor, a great Pointing lab pup purchased
in the summer of 2011. She is a great hunter and family dog.

I can't express enough, how fine a dog you have produced. This is
Copper. he just spent a week hunting just outside of Council Bluffs
Iowa. His 3rd trip out there since he was a pup, and he was incredible.
Great points, very obedient, no need for a collar, just a bell, and
right on his game. He is a great hunter, honors other dogs points, and
is exceptional at finding and retrieving a dead bird. He is a great
family dog as well. He goes along well with my kids and wife. 6 miles a
day running with her. The only thing we haven't been able to do is
train him how to clear the table, and put the supper plates into the
dishwasher. A family may have several dogs over a lifetime, and one
will stand out as the favorite. I believe that he will be that one.
Thank you, I will be contacting you for my next dog. JJ
is a photo of Kizmet, our black Labrador puppy
from Diesel X Annie
litter. Lots of style for an 8 month old puppy. She won her
1st Pass for Jr. Hunter this past weekend. We're really
proud. Hope to finish her in the spring. Thanks for your great
Labrador retrievers. S.M.
are several photos of Chase. He is now slightly over seven
months old and a very handsome chocolate labrador. Recently he was on his first
pheasant hunt. He pointed every bird and held the point until
the flush. He retrieved every bird to hand and was simply
awesome! Chase is working at a level I could have hoped for as
an adult. He is extremely intelligent and will be the best dog I
have ever owned. Thank you for a very fine dog and welcome
addition to our house. Bill R. (Michigan)
is a photo of an excellent hunt. Thanks for your great
Labrador retrievers. Mark/Charlie. (Ohio)
Pointing Labrador Retriever puppy I bought from your kennel. She locks up real good on grouse
scent at 8 weeks. Full of mischief too. She tore out most
of the flowers my wife planted. W should have named her
"Round-Up" instead of Daisy. Lamont M. (Pennsylvania)

It must be in her blood!!

|I hunted Katy, our labrador retriever, on Saturday on 4
pheasants. She points like no tomorrow....and holds it! I
only hope you can continue to breed field dogs like Katy. She is
perfect. She hunts so well at 11 months what will I think at 2-3
years? I did start her off with a 50 foot check cord which she
did get used to but then I let her go after the first bird. She
stayed close most of the time and even came to "heel" when I
called her. We had a hard time finding the last bird, in fact we
passed by it at least twice. There was not much wind at all but
Katy hunted relentlessly and she found the bird. One time she was
running straight away like she knew why and where she was going and on
a dime she stopped. I commanded "whoa" and she held
the point until I gave her the "OK" command. She put
the bird up and I put the bird down. What a beautiful
sight!! This is only her third "upland" hunt with
birds and she uses her nose like we use our eyes. I also believe
she knows how to use the wind to her advantage. What else can I
say? Ray J.
|A HUGE THANK YOU! I cannot tell you how
happy we are to have Jazzy, a Smoke x Annie, Labrador Retriever puppy, as part of our
family. Not only is she absolutely beautiful but what an
outstanding personality! You did a great job choosing our puppy
for us. I am so glad that you and I spoke as often as we did
prior to you shipping her. I thank you for your time and
discussion of our life style and the type of disposition and body
frame we wanted.
Jazzy's hunting instincts are unbelievable. My husband joined a
hunt club this season and took her out expecting a beginner puppy
performance and she astounded him and the other hunters with her
instincts and response to him. She sees him get his gun
and just goes nuts with excitement. It's really fun to
watch. We can't imagine not having Jazzy. She is just a
wonderful all around dog and a great addition to our family.
Kristen C (New Jersey)
and I hunt upland game. Here are a couple of
pictures. He is very steady on point and marks well. He
takes hand signals well and is really a good pointing labrador
retriever. Robert B.
son, Jake, and our yellow labrador are inseparable. Jake's favorite movie is
"Old Yeller." He thinks our dog is a movie star.
Also, I would like some work on our dog's hand signals. Let me
know if you have any openings this summer. Thanks. Jason
|I am enjoying my pointing labrador retriever. I worked him hard this summer and he has
unlimited possibilities. He points great, and has great marking ability on retrieves.
Definitely the easiest dog I have trained. ... He is also gorgeous. Never gotten so many
compliments on a dogs looks. He is about 70 lbs. already and very lean and muscular.
Everyone that sees him falls in love. I love my dog and thank you. Dan

|I am very pleased with my labrador retriever puppy. He has a really nice laid-back personality and
reminds me of my very first lab, who not only got me into dogs but also hunting. He is
always carrying something in his mouth and loves to retrieve bumpers. This is the kind of
puppy I was looking for. Thanks for the great
puppy. Erik P.
|The labrador retriever puppy
came in fine. She is fitting in well with the family. I
am surprised on how well she is doing after that long flight today, its like nothing
happened. she looks great. Michael M. (California)
|Hay-Lee, our pointing labrador retriever, is doing great. She goes almost everywhere with me. I have been working
her on some pigeons and a pheasant for a few weeks. So far she has found and pointed every
bird I have put out for her. I took her dove hunting last week and she started to retrieve
the doves for me. I can't believe how well she is doing. At 5 months old she
is so great. Michael M. (California)
|Gunner, our pointing labrador retriever, is doing very well. He is my buddy and comes to call
better than any I've seen. He points well and likes being in the water & retrieving
ducks. He has turned a dark yellow/red and is exactly the dog I was looking to get and the
color & size you predicted he would be. Bob B. (Pennsylvania)
|Scout, our pointing labrador retriever,...is extremely bright and energetic. ...He is simply the most wonderful
mannered dog and yet the makings of a great hunter are there as well. He is
tenacious after a scent and shows very strong pointing instincts....He has mastered all of
his basic commands and we will begin more advanced training this spring and summer.
Furthermore, I get compliments (actually raves) whenever people see him. My vet, at his
one year check-up, could not say enough to compliment what a beautiful dog he is. Between
his color and his profile, I have a dog that is everything that I hoped he would be in a
companion. This fall I am sure he will be everything I hoped for in a hunting partner as
well. Joe P. (New York)
|Lita, our pointing labrador
retriever,...loves to retrieve and has pointed on several occasions.
I am taking her pheasant hunting soon. John S. (New York)
|Smokin' Tessie Ann, our pointing labrador retriever, is 7 months old now and is enrolled in a 90 day starting dog
program. She held her first points. Every one for 25 seconds OR until we went in and
kicked up the bird. And of course she retrieved the bird after. Dan S.
|Jazz, our pointing labrador retriever, is on her first extended hunting trip in Iowa and she is
doing extremely well. She is pointing and retrieving like crazy. The first day out she
pointed one bird and the past two days she has gotten 6 each day. She has retrieved them
all except for one. My dad can't believe how well she is doing. He said that she is doing
better than his Brittany and doing as well or better than the rest of the dogs that are
there (mostly German shorthairs). Jennifer S. (Ohio)
|The pointing labrador retriever puppy you sold me...I don't think I will ever be able to train her. (just
kidding)....She is too much fun to kiss and hug on. I can never tell her "no" for anything. And I hate to teach her to
"sit" because she would much rather snuggle up on your lap.
I think maybe I should get another puppypy. One for training and one just for loving on.
How awesome !! You didn't tell me she would be so cuddly. Buddy F.
|Curt, The pointing labrador retriever puppy
we bought is doing great! While this is the third puppy
we have purchased from
you we still had some reservations on this one. As you know he has some big shoes to fill
with regards to the tragic loss of our male (Copper). The fact that he was the last
puppy left in your litter gave us some reservations on his quality. As you know last does not
seem to mean best!! When you stated that you felt that he was worth the look we talked it
over and the rest is history. He is absolutely fabulous, to be truthful he seem to be more
natural than the previous two puppys. If anyone ever has any concerns about your word or the
picking order please give them my number. I could not have picked a better
Thanks again, Mike R. (Ohio)
|Curt, The last female pointing labrador retriever puppy
that I purchased is doing everything you said she would.
She is a natural pointer as well as great with the kids. Her drive is simply amazing but she is so well
behaved in the house it is unbelievable! My wife feels that these bigger dogs are much
better with the kids and much better mannered. They are extremely smart and the kids
do get pretty rough with them at times. They simply can't get too much attention (no matter how rough it seems)! Her water
drive is outstanding, if it falls it comes back to the blind, period!
Thank you for your training of my older female labrador retriever. The force fetching not only sired this
problem but it has made her a much more obedient dog. While I may have left some things go
too long this is one area that was well worth the money spent. I am very pleased with both
dogs and can't wait to take you out hunting with them. Thanks again, Brian L.
|Hi Curt, Here is an update on Gunnar,
our pointing labrador retriever. Let me just say
that he is all the dog, that we could ever want. He puts up with my 2 year old son jumping
on him and running into him with his tricycle. He is a real pleaser. However, in the field
he is all business. With the arrival of my second son in August, I have spent less time
training him than any of my other labs. However, in the 5 times I've had him out pheasant
hunting I have bagged 5 ringnecks. When I got him, I told you that I have never hunted
behind a pointing dog. Gunnar is teaching me. He was on point this morning and I came over
and flushed a woodcock. He has held point on numerous pheasants. He is not retrieving
birds yet, but with a little work I'm sure he will soon. He retrieves everything you throw
in the yard. I must also point out that he works close. This is the first young lab that
I've had that hasn't run out and put a bird up 100 yards in front of me. Thanks again for
a wonderful dog. Erik P. (Virginia)
|Curt, One year and three months after
picking up "Little Annie", our pointing labrador retriever puppy, I can report that she has turned
out to be everything we hoped for. Annie is a friend that lives
in our home. She minds well and is fun to be with. As a
hunter, I spent many hours training with her. She retrieved her
first duck, a green winged teal, at the age of 13 weeks. It
wouldn't fit in her mouth, so she towed it by the wing back to me on
the shore. At 18 weeks, she helped me get a wild turkey.
During the winter of 2002, we hunted pheasant and chuckers on a
preserve and she started to point and hold. As a sideline, Annie
will dive 8' into the deep end of my pool to retrieve a rubber
torpedo. It is quite a sight to see. Your promise of a
good dog is fulfilled! Thank you very much. H. Darling
