    I have always had Labradors and all of the have been Black , I cant say they are the best fowling dogs because I haven't had any other breed to compare them with . but the ones I have had have been loyal and as keen as I would like a dog to be and I have never regretted making that choice.

    I'm training a mongrel, Labrador cross Huntaway. He's got a lovely nature and seems to be coming along OK.

    Cheers

    Chesapeake and a old lab for me

    How did you find training a Chesapeake heard they are a bit head string, but great wildfowling dogs. Is yours a dog or bitch?

    Yes, they definately have a head full of string. The trick though, is knowing how to unravel it!

    They aren`t so much head strong as differently wired than, say, a lab. I`ve always found them quite easy to train but I would not recommend one as a first dog. When you can turn out a well trained Lab, flatcoat or goldie, then is the time to think about a Chessie. They will require all the tricks in the trainers repetoire, not because they are hard headed, but that they have a completely different world view to most other retrievers.

    I had 2 labs but down to one, older one passed at 13 1/2 earlier in the year.

    Current one is 4, girlfriend wants a chessie to train next so no doubt we'll get one in a few years

    I have a large black cocker, loves fowling. Maybe not the ideal dog but he does all I want for my needs and is good all round.
