Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Are your pointing Labrador retriever puppies APLA certified?

We did certify some of our original stock, but do not since then. We do however believe that the pups we produce speak enough for themselves, whether it’s been with the titles they have held throughout the years or our satisfied customers. Basically, we are a North West Kansas family who grew up hunting and hunting with dogs, spending time learning about the breed we offer.

What is the temperament of your lab puppies?

Very docile and laid back, unless you are hunting or have the retrieving bumpers out, then they are getting after it. They know when to turn it on and off. Our dogs are primarily outside dogs, but they do come inside very often. Besides hunting season we take them on trips and they are usually riding in the front seat of the pick-up or the back seat of the car.

Are the pointing Labrador puppies socialized?

From the time they are born till they leave we have a radio playing non-stop. After the puppies are about 3wks old we start clapping our hands and making other noises. From the time they are 5wks old till 7wks we start working them on a pheasant wing. Depending on the time of year, we have a pool they can get in and play around in the water. If it during the summer time we take them to the local pool and introduce them to all those noises and not to mention all of the kids. The puppies are well socialized with children as I have nieces and nephews whose ages range from 2 yrs of age to 12 yrs and they are playing with them constantly.

Do you have problems with shipping your lab puppies out?

To date, we have never had any shipping issues, no sick puppies and our pups are always ready to go upon arrival. Occasionally, we may run into some issues depending on the time of year as there are certain restrictions for different flights on the temperature. What we do is try to set a date that works for both us and you and then look at different flights and times and then we go from there.

How does one go about picking a pointing lab retriever puppy out, when they can’t be there in person?

We can also send photos of our puppies and between the information given and sending photos of the puppies, we generally are able to determine what type of lab puppy you are looking for. Below is letter from a past customer who allowed us to pick a puppy for her:

Dear Mike,

I can’t say enough good things about the puppy you chose for us! She is the best pup I have ever seen! Jerry is so in love with her he can hardly bear to leave her at home. Usually she goes EVERYWHERE with him. He even wants to get her a guide dog harness so she can really go EVERYWHERE. Better still was the timing of everything. Jerry is off work with an injury waiting for authorization to have surgery, so he gets to spend all day every day with her and it sure is paying off. She is extremely obedient, she has taken to positive reinforcement training very quickly. He just does little simple 3-5 minute training of come and sit commands right before meal time. She is so eager to please that in just a few short exposures she was responding instantly to just the whistle without even waiting for the actual command. Of course she will probably have some set backs and off days as she matures, that is normal, but she is very responsive to most everything. She has lots of chew toys and so she has been pretty good about chewing, except for Jerrys’ shoes because they smell of him. Certainly better than any of the Weimareiners were, but that is also an advantage of her breeding. I’ll try to get some pic’s of them around the beginning of April and email them to you so you can see how happy they are together. Thanks again! I’ll keep you posted.

P.S. Oh, he named her Shasta after a mountain here that has 7 glaciers so it has snow year round, and since we have Blue Weimareiners, and a red Visla, we now have red white and blue hunting dogs. That’s pretty American, if I do say so myself. (ha ha, I guess we qualify as “red-necks” but I already knew that)

Mike, I couldn’t be happier with the little guy. He’s got so much personality already. As you know, I absolutely loved my previous yellow lab. I thought I would have a hard time connecting with another pup as well as I did my last one. Well, he’s making it easy. He learns very quickly for only being 11 weeks old and has a drive to please that I have never seen in a young pup. He is constantly making eye contact with me, it’s like he is just checking with me to see that I’m doing alright.
