lab shorthair mix?

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a black lab german shorthair mix for my wifes birthday (she wanted it) and was wondering if anyone has had something like it and if they will be good hunters.

Both breeds have excellent qualities. I have a buddy who has a black lab/german shepherd mix and gets his two roosters almost every time! It turned out to be a great pheasant dog. I would think a shorthaired pointer/lab mix would be great...haven't known anyone who has one.

I have the result of a GSP that bred with a farm dog St. Bernard/black lab/golden mix.

It's a great dog.

What do you call that cross? A Germador Pointriever.

It's worth trying the dog to see what you have.

For the whinning, get one of those old alarm clocks that you have to wind-up and wrap it up in a towel and put it in her crate (it makes them feel like they are sleeping with their mother). Works like a charm. For the chewing you are on your own, part of being a puppy.

This behavior is in page 1 of the puppy handbook. grin.gif Even a pup from the most pristine of breedings will do this.

After a while the pup will grow out of the night time whining. Give it plenty of safe chew toys for the chewing. Lots of playtime to wear the pup out will help too. A tired pup is a good pup because it's sleeping.

Carpmaster - we have Annie - a yellow lab/GSP mix - she is a wonderful house dog, great with the kids, fairly well-behaved (doesn't chew anything in the house), rings a bell hanging on the door knob when she needs to go out, etc. However, she is high strung!! She needs the ball thrown to her every day and needs a fairly large yard to run. She can follow most simple commands. I never gave her any formal field training (I'm not a hard-core hunter - if I get out grouse hunting at least 3 times in a year it would be a miracle). Anyway, I took her out a few times thinking that some of the natural instinct would kick in. Not a chance!! I know that it's my fault for not providing the proper training but I was hoping for the slight chance that she would perhaps point or retreive a downed bird. Nope! She was terrified of the grouse that my buddy shot when we showed it to her. She'll stick to the trail but will not get into the thick stuff to look for birds. What can I say, she's a lover, not a fighter. It's kind of strange because I was told that her Mom, the lab and her Dad, the GSP, were both great hunting dogs. On the bright side, we have a wonderful canine companion without a mean bone in her body. Let me know how your dog turns out. I'm sure with proper training, it should turn out to be a fine dog.

I had a great labrador about 15 years ago that was an escape artist and would go over to her boy friends quite frequently which happened to be a GSP. Next thing ya know I had a litter of pups to deal with. I gave away all the pups for free. 2 of my buddies each took one and they both turned out to be great dogs. Both pointed like a crazy and retrieved very well. One thing I've learned over the years, if a dog has good instinct and the owner takes the time to work with it, it doesn't matter if it is a purebreed or mutt. I've even seen a pitbull/lab cross turn into a legitimate huntin dog.

Hi,

I have a lab/shorthair mix and she is awesome!!!!! Very good family dog. I don't hunt but we have woods in our back yard and she in heaven. Our dog has alot of energy. She never gets tired. She goes jogging with me in the warmer months and after running for 2 miles she will be asking to play ball in the back yard.

My dog loves to give love to everybody and everything. Also this mix is very trainable and they do listen pretty well.

Good luck.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
