Our AKC registered labs have a history of British breeding and our family has had them for a few generations. While we don't currently field trial our dogs ourselves each of our dogs has a field trial history in their bloodline. With that being said our labs aren't wound so tight as to where they are not pleasurable to be around. They are driven but while hunting they quickly settle into a steady rhythm and will gladly sit by your side with a calm manner when the day is done. As all labs ours love the water but since they have access to it on a daily basis it is not the only thing they think about. They are great around family and children so if you are looking for more of a pet our labs will make a perfect addition to your family in that way as well. We love our sires but our dams are our number one concern and we only breed them when they are ready and we don't over breed them. Usually our main reason to breed one of our girls is because we are hoping to keep a puppy for us, or to start. Some labs are only hunted on ducks, and while there is absolutely nothing wrong with that we pride ourselves on hunting them on all types of game from pheasant, grouse, quail, woodcocks, ducks, geese, and doves.
