Hi, everyone!
We have a new addition: “Sterling,” an 8-week-old female Pointing Silver Lab. We had to drive to the far northwest reaches of Kansas (Atwood) to get her, but after 24 hours with her, it was well worth it. We found her at Lankas Labs which specializes in hunting labs including the more rare Silver breed. Believe it or not, she stayed in her new kennel without disturbing us a single time all night. She is a delight --- quick learner and of course, full of energy with a very curious sense and baby sharp teeth.

I have included three pictures. The first one is (or, should be) Sterling in a very posed position looking very regal and confident in our living room. The second shot is in a pasture not far from our house just as she was going on point on a rooster Pheasant. The third photo is her guarding her “kill,” very tired after a long day’s work!

O.K., O.K., so she wasn’t on point, it was in our yard and the Pheasant is a cloth and leather Pheasant chew toy. But, I have great hopes that it won’t be long before those pictures are reflections of the real thing.

Hope to talk to you soon.

Jim & Barbara

Wondering what some of our pups learn before coming to your home? Our Pointing Labs receive constant stimulation from the time they are born, helping them to develop their alertness for and awareness of their environment. To help you see what some of our puppies do at various stages of their development, we have included some pictures of the following pups actively participating in Lab Pointer Starter Training.

Not only will you be able to see our Pointing Labrador Puppies hard at work, but you will also be able to see their rich, vibrant-colored coats, allowing prospective owners to see all of the beautiful colors of Pointing Labradors Lankas Labs have to offer.

A Lab for All Seasons

When not busy with upland hunting or retrieving fowl, Pointing Labradors enjoy having fun year-round. In fall and winter, when hunts can be cold, the Lab is a hearty animal; easily trekking through snow-covered land. Should you be an avid waterfowl hunter, the fearless Lab can easily retrieve a bird from the water-logged bank or from shallow water. Labs are excellent retrievers as well as swimmers. With a properly trained Pointing Lab, hunts become more enjoyable, as you will have an experienced, trusted companion to assist you with all of your pointing and retrieving needs.

During the summer, Labs enjoy keeping up their pointing and retrieving skills. A social animal, the Lab enjoys spending time with humans and other dogs. If having a small outdoor pool, your Lab will enjoy cooling off and spending warm summer days with the family. Owners can also use the off-season to practice pointing and retrieving techniques, introduce new skills or scents, or enroll in a professional pre-season training program. At Lankas Labs, we proudly offer pre-season and seasonal training for all dog breeds and ages.

While your Lab may get plenty of exercise during the hunting season, be sure to continue this regimen year-round. Keeping a Lab at a recommended weight not only helps the dog perform better during the hunting season, but also prevents obesity-related health issues. Dogs need to have daily aerobic exercise and should be fed per vet recommendations. One of the best ways to make sure your Lab gets plenty of exercise is to allow it to socialize with your other dogs. The animals will run around and play together, ensuring all receive daily exercise, with the added benefit of canine socialization.
