Mike,

My name is Suzanne and we got a chocolate lab from you in august. Bailey. She is awesome. We are currently in North Dakota hunting. We made the plans to come down with her and our older dog but unfortunately we lost him last month. My husband has hunted with Dratthars for many years and wanted to wait and see how this pup did before deciding on his next dog. Well at 6 months and in cold and blowing wind she has impressed him enough that he would like to put down a deposit on a female. Preferably charcoal or silver from this upcoming litter. Or he said ivory would be fine if it has a black nose and dark paws.
To brag on my pup she has pointed several hens. She has retrieved multiple cripples and today retrieved and brought to my hand the last pheasant of the day. She is an awesome house dog and all 5 kids love her. 5 mins into her first hunt she caught a barb wire fence and put a 6 inch gash in her leg and never slowed down. We got her stitched up and she was back out hunting shortly after. Her drive is great. Nothing bad to say about the dog at all. She is just awesome. Thanks so much and let us know if there is any availability for upcoming litters

Dear Mike:

You asked me to keep you posted, so I’ve attached a picture of “Sterling’s” first hunt last weekend.

She was great! She hunted two straight days with tons of energy. She kept her nose down and was totally obedient working back and forth and NEVER running wild or out of range. She absolutely loved it. The down side is that whereas there was a great deal of “hunting,” there wasn’t much “killing.” We were around Cuba and Belleville, KS and found the Pheasant population to be very poor. Quail wasn’t bad, but the warm weather and wind caused a lot of scattered flights. Sorry that I wasn’t able to get a picture of her pointing. I was always distracted and the birds were very restless, although she didn’t flush any.

Anyway, Sterling caught everyone’s attention and praise. She figured out that finding Pheasant and Quail is the point of the exercise and held tight when encountering a crippled or dead bird. I’m very pleased with her obedience, energy and love to hunt and natural instincts. At not quite six months, I wouldn’t have expected a year-old or more performance from her.

Enjoy the picture.

Jim

Mike,

Just dropping you a line to let you know Molly (Stormy/Bo) is now 17 months old and doing great. She has her APLA CPR title, and is working on her AKC JH title. She has seen plenty of birds and has a very stylish point.

In addition to offering Pointing Labradors, Lankas Labs also is pleased to offer pre-season and season training for all breeds and ages of dogs.

The Benefits of Early Learning

As you can see from our pictures, we begin working with our Labs while they are very young. Labradors have natural instincts that are beneficial when hunting waterfowl or engaging in uplands hunting activities. At Lankas Labs, we help each Lab build on his or her own natural pointing instincts to develop a trained, loyal gun dog.

Starting at the age of 5 weeks, all of our puppies are introduced to a pheasant wing. This helps them become familiar with scents, appearances and textures of fowl at an early age. Unless they are working, Labradors are non-aggressive, family-focused dogs that make great companions. All of our puppies are socialized with other dogs as well as humans to help develop an excellent hunting dog as well as a dedicated, family companion.

About the Labrador Breed

Very intelligent, Labradors are one of the most popular breeds to own. Originating from Newfoundland, Labs have been known for their dedicated service to humans. In addition to working as Pointing Labradors, other uses for the breed have included working as guide dogs for the blind, serving as emotional assistance animals for the handicapped and working as a tracking dog for various civilian and military law enforcement departments.

Preferred by hunters, Pointing Labs are highly desired for their acute sense of smell, their excellent ability to be trained and their love of water. Labs are highly proficient swimmers, making them ideal working dogs for waterfowl hunters. Out of the water, their ability to detect scents makes them the perfect upland hunting dogs.

Our Labs in Action

To see a demonstration of our Labs in action, please watch the video clips of our Labs pointing. This should give you a good idea about some of the training our youngest members of the Lankas Labs family receive.
