Over the past year or two I've been thinking about getting a new puppy. For different reasons I passed on several nice litters. I am finally in a position to get a new pup and ready to put down a deposit.

The litter I was very excited about didn't take. Sonogram showed no puppies.

So I am back in the market for a good female chocolate. If anyone has info on a good litter I'd appreciate it.

I wouldn't care about color but it's my wife's stipulation.

damn son, you can buy field trial bred dogs for $1500. that being said brady buck, if tjhook already has this one retrieving and wild about retrieving that will take some of the guess work out of it when picking a 7-8 week old pup.
check out retrievertrainingforum.net
and entryexpress.net . lots of puppies.

it all in what is great to us. ive had 4 mo old labs doing 200 yard retrieves and starting doubles. well, his trainer did. one of worst things you can do is just throw bumpers or ducks in the back yard. 1st it will gt them in a bad habbit of only running 20 yards then breaking down and hunting for the bird and 2ndly you need to have someone throwing thebumpers or ducks. even young kids can toss a bumper 10 yards and it us super important that you get your dog focuesing out on a gunner and not you when it comes time to retrieve.

if you get on rtf or entry express or even alot of the facebook pages you can find pups from FC AFC sires and MH QAAmoms for 1k-1500.

Thanks, as far as training I'll be following Hillmann and Lardy pretty close. Hillmann's puppy and then blending Hillmann and Lardy later.

I've got a few leads on good litters. Just trying to make a decision it's a lot of pressure.

She does he own dove retrieves, just introduced her to a duck the yesterday. Kinda tossed a teal on the ground ahe snagged it up and ran around. She has a pretty champion bloodline. Encase you didn't clink the link i had earlier on her. 1500 is a reasonable price.

I like the big and stocky, overly blocky head. Well my wife does more then Me. Thats our male. She wanted her a good lab so i found a awsome line for me to train amd her to use. But shes looking traditional. Long snout, long and slender.

you arent gonna find a big blocky head big tradiotional lab if you buy dogs heavy in field trial and most hunt test lines because most hunt test lines come from field trials.
