British Lab Breeder

2 posts in this topic

I recently ordered a British lab pup from a breeder in Houlton, Wisconsin. I'm hesitant to name the kennel since it is also a web site and I might violate forum policy. It's the one run by Dennis Anderson and his wife. I intend to check some of the references they gave me, but thought I'd check in the forum here and see if anyone else has had any experience with them. How was your dealings with them? How was the dog in terms of health, trainability, and hunting instinct? Would you buy from them again?

Thanks in advance for your opinions. I'm spending a chunk of money here, which is fine, but I want to make sure it's well spent.

I have had some experience with them. My friend and neighbor at out place up north has one from Dennis.

It is a very, very calm dog and is not hyper at all. He turns in to all business in the field and is an excellent waterfowl dog. He was all trained by hand with no shock collar(he is in law enforcement) and handles unbelievably. It is a good dog but, doesn't like to be around more than one other dog and if you have lots of company will go hide in a room.

I have a British coming in August from Double J British Labs. It will be fun.

Good Luck!!

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
