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!!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
