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!!

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
