We have labrador retrievers because
We have decided to only work with labrador retrievers after field trial and gun dog lines as we want dogs that
have a good temper
function well as family dogs
document great willingness to cooperate with and please his/her handler
show ability to, willingness to and joy at retrieving
are worthy gun dogs
The goals of training and working with our labrador retrievers are partly that they obtain prizes at tests and trials partly that they function well as gun dogs during the hunting season. Therefore, we spend most of our leisure time on training dogs and participating in tests and trials. In the hunting season we are invited to pick up at some estates.
