Labradoodles

Recommended Posts

Has anybody hunted over a labradoodle? I need a dog, but the significant other is allergic to them...so I'm making an effort to compromise as much as I can. This is the only breed that will have a chance to get in the house occasionally. Thanks

I would bet they'd be ok being that poodles were orginally bred to be hunters. Mix that with a lab and they might be good. Although i'm not in favor of the breed. I see breeders selling these "mutts" for $5-600. Can't see myself spending that much on a mix breed. But, whatever works i guess.

If she is truly,medically, certified to be allergic to dogs then she will be allergic to ANY dog. Please don't buy one....of any breed.You'll be doing some poor little puppy a real favor and sending him/her on to a good home.

Perhaps you might want to buy a nice tiger.

Most animal allergies aren't to the animals themselves but to the dander(dead skin, dust mites, dust, etc.) in the animal's fur. If the dog is bathed thoroughly a couple times a week, animal dander allergies should be in check. I'm no allergist and I don't know the extent of the animal allergy that each person has. I do have seasonal allergies and some food allergies and I've found the best remedy is to "tough it out" til your body adjusts to the allergen. I used to get shots(which are doses of allergen, to get your body used to it) and take Rx and OTC meds. The past two years I've done nothing and this year my allergies were almost non-existant. I have a friend who is allergic to cats and I have a cat. He says that even though his eyes itch and he gets sneezy when he comes over, it's not as bad as a few years ago. I let him suffer because I'm not even going to try and give my cat a bath wink.gif

Hey Kingr,

The Wirehair Pointing Griffon's is another option for you, plus they are a true hunting breed & not a mutt. There is a breeder in your area his name is Mark Drexler & he lives in Duluth. He also goes by Double Griff here at FM. He was possibly going to have some pups on the ground in Nov. a repeat breeding from last year which was the litter I got my pup from.

My best suggestion would be to call him up & take the better half over to meet the dogs & see if she has a reaction to them before comitting to a pup. The Griffon's have hair not fur & are non-shedding dogs. My buddy is allergic to dogs also & he never has reactions around the Griffon. So this might be a better fit for you if your looking for a hunter.

Marks number is 218-310-7156 give him a call.

Good Luck with your search for a pup.

Chris

Chris,

Just wondering if you have any first hand experience about the allergy thing with the wirehairs? I have heard this also but not many people seem to talk much about the wirehairs being better for allergy sufferers. I am thinking hard about a griff also. If they would be better for my allergies that would seal the deal.

By the way, how is your pup doing? Did you take him out hunting yet this year?

Thanks,

Dave

What a dumba$$ I am! I just realized that you wrote in your post about your buddy who is allergic. I guess that answers my question.

Sorry,

Now I don't know if there is any kind of scientific evidence to support this but I have seen it first hand and was told by my vet, that sometimes two dogs will offset the others dander and sometimes make those that would normally be allergic, have no reaction at all. My wife never reacted to my dads dog until his other one died. now I own my dads dogs sister, and my wife has never had a reaction to her, (we have two dogs). Like I said I don't know if it is coincidence, but my vet did verify that he has also heard of this....

Thats wierd! I've never heard of such a thing. But then again, there's a lot of things that I don't know.

BigDave,

The pup "Rudy" is doing great. He is now 18 mo. old. We went out yesterday & downed 1 rooster. Missed plenty of them also! shocked.gif He is just starting to figuring out the wild birds they are moving alot now that they have been pressured. But he is catching on to tracking them when they are on the run. All in all we had about 12 points yesterday with 85% of them being hens. Just couldn't shoot the roosters that did get up due to trucks coming down the road or other hunters crowding me mad.gif

Later,

Chris

Sounds like Rudy is doing great! What area do you normally hunt in? Maybe I could tag along sometime and watch Rudy do his thing and see if he affects my allergies if you wouldn't mind?

Give me an e-mail if you would like to do that.

Thanks

      A series of events celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment will take place throughout Minnesota in 2018. The first of these events will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Silverwood Regional Park, 2500 County Road E, St. Anthony.  Adults and kids who attend the Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration at Silverwood Regional Park can try kick-sledding, ice fishing, a snowmobile simulator and other indoor and outdoor activities. Visitors can also hike among art sculptures throughout the park. Between activities, there will be s’mores and other light refreshments around a crackling bonfire. “The passage of the Legacy Amendment was a game-changer for organizations working to support Minnesota’s outstanding system of parks and trails,” said Erika Rivers, director of the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “At this event, and the statewide events to follow, we will not only highlight what has been accomplished over the past decade with Legacy funding but, perhaps even more important, we will gather input from people throughout the state—adults and kids alike—to help shape priorities moving forward.” Staff from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission will be on hand throughout the afternoon to lead activities and gather ideas. Metro Transit is providing free rides to the event. Get a downloadable bus pass at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/2018-regional-events. Future Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration events will take place: Friday, April 27, 4-7 p.m., at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph. Saturday, May 5, 1-4 p.m. at the Red Baron Arena in Marshall. Friday, May 11, 4-7 p.m., at Hyland-Bush-Anderson Lakes Park in Bloomington. Saturday, May 19, 1-4 p.m. at 125 LIVE in Rochester. Saturday, June 2, 1-4 p.m. at Itasca State Park in Park Rapids. Saturday, June 16, 1-4 p.m. at Prairie Wetland Environmental Learning Center in Fergus Falls. Wednesday, June 27, 1-4 p.m. at Essentia Health Duluth Heritage Sports Center in Duluth. For more information, visit www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac. For accommodations to participate, please contact Paul Purman at the DNR, paul.purman@state.mn.us or 651-259-5643. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Which river is good for char?
    • leech~~
      Here's a little back ground. The Dakota originally called the lake Mde Maka Ska (modern spelling Bde Maka Ska, pronunciation: Be-DAY Mah-KAH-Ska)[5] meaning White Earth Lake,[6] or White Bank Lake,[7] a name that probably was given by the Ioway who inhabited the area until the 16th century. Another Dakota name for the lake may have been Mde Med'oza, which was the name initially adopted by settlers, either as Lake Medoza or in translation as Loon Lake.[8] The Dakota also described it as Heyate Mde, meaning "Lake Set Back (from the River)".[9] The United States Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun, sent the Army to survey the area that would surround Fort Snelling in 1817. Calhoun had also authorized the construction of Fort Snelling, one of the earliest Euro-American settlements in the state. The surveyors renamed the water body "Lake Calhoun" in his honor. The Fort Snelling Military Reservation survey map created by Lt. James L. Thompson in 1839 clearly shows the lake as bearing the name "Calhoun".[10] Minneapolis skyline reflected in the lake in 2010 Calhoun's legacy as a pro-slavery politician has led critics to question whether he is the best person to be honored. In 2011 the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board visited the issue. Their legal counsel concluded that the board could not legally change the name, as state law gives that power to the Commissioner of Natural Resources, and then only in the first 40 years after the name was designated. Following the Charleston church shooting in June 2015, a fresh drive to change the name started via an online petition. The Park Board indicated it would look into whether they could change the lake's name through state action,[11][12] and in fall 2015 added the Dakota name to signage below the official name.[1] On March 22, 2016, an advisory group decided via majority vote to urge the Minnesota Park and Recreation Board to restore the lake's former name.[13] In 2017, the Minneapolis Park Board voted unanimously to change the lake's name back to that of Bde Maka Ska[14] and the Hennepin County commissioners approved it more narrowly.[15] The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect.[16] There was also a proposal to rename the lake for Senator Paul Wellstone, who is buried in nearby Lakewood Cemetery.[17]

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced the State of Minnesota has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska. The DNR’s decision follows a Hennepin County Board resolution requesting the change.  “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said.  “In this instance, I am confident the Hennepin County Board carefully considered community values and citizen perspectives in determining that this was the right action to take. DNR’s role is to ensure the county followed the proper process.” The DNR’s decision means the lake name change will become official in Minnesota when the DNR’s approval is officially recorded by Hennepin County and published in the State Register. Hennepin County commissioners voted to seek the name change Nov. 28. The DNR will submit the Hennepin County resolution, along with the state approval, to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, which will approve or deny the name change for federal use. The DNR is the state agency that approves or denies name changes for geographic features, after Minnesota counties consider name change resolutions, gather public input and vote on proposed changes. In considering county requests to name a geographic feature or change a feature’s name, the DNR’s role is to consider 1) whether the county followed a proper public process prior to taking its action, and 2) whether the county-approved name complies with naming conventions. For example, names must avoid confusion with similarly named features, and names may not commemorate a living person. A copy of the DNR’s order for this name change and details on how Minnesota geographic features are named are available on the naming geographic features webpage.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.
