lab pup

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

I am going to be after a lab pup in the next month or two, having only had two spaniels previously both from shooting friends I don't know where to start looking for a well bred lab.

 

I have looked on guns on pegs and uk gun dogs but Im not sure what im looking at if im honest. if there is anyone who can recommend a breeder or knows of a litter coming up please let me know.

 

ideally I would like to see both parents but I understand sometimes its only possible to see the mother, must have had all heath checks, hips, elbows, eyes etc and be from working parents.

 

the dog will be kept inside the house and will be used picking up twice a week in the pheasant season as well as a couple days a week decoying in the summer. I would also like to take the dog staking at some point but one thing at a time! my spaniel Is now 8 and struggles to do a full day sometimes hence wanting to bring on a pup.

 

I am in devon but would travel a fair distance for the right pup.

 

thanks all

I didn't see the sire or dam of the lab I bought recently. It was bought on it's pedigree and breeders reputation. I had the pup picked up for me and dropped off so never even met the breeder.

I guess if you have a way of knowing the breeders reputation than that's different, I have no way of knowing anything about the breeders as everyone I know used spaniels for beating, I would however be great full of anyone could point me in the direction of a reputable breader!

I know very little about breeders, but you could try doing what I did. I searched the net for local lab breeders. I found one close by, and ended up on the waiting list for their next litter. My pup has an excellent pedigree, including the Drakeshead line and is also the nephew of Delfleet Neon of Fendawood.

I'd bet that you have a good breeder nearby.

Best of luck with your search.

is it worth having a look on the kennel club site, they have a breeders section, when i looked there were a few puppies from FTCH lines.

I'm sure if you had a pup in mind and asked someone in the know then they could give you an idea of reputation. Cocker boy and I have our friendly fall outs every now and then and I hate to admit it but he knows his onions :) I would take his advice :)

Thanks for the pm cocker boy I have replied! It's not so much finding a litter it's knowing what breeders or sites to use to get something that has been bread for its working capability rather than by someone who was a bit skint.

 

Thanks
