What it Means to be Orvis Certified
So just what does it mean to earn an endorsement from Orvis as a certified dog breeder? For starters, it means that Iowa Pointing Labs is one of three Labrador breeders in the country that has earned this exclusive distinction. It also means that we have passed vigorous standards set forth by a well-respected and reputable company within the outdoor and sporting industry.
Perk Perkins, CEO of The Orvis Company, has said, “The Orvis-Endorsed Hunting Dog Breeding Program makes your search for the right dog for hunting and companionship as easy as possible. With so many gun dog breeders out there, it takes a lot of research and knowledge to find one that you can trust to deliver the dog you’ll be spending years with, in and out of the field.” He goes on to say, “We set very high criteria to find the best of the best bird dog breeders, true professionals, acutely mindful of the drastic genetic variation in a breed, and who breed for certain characteristics over many generations.”
In addition, Orvis has spent the last few years compiling a short and unique list that identifies the best hunting dog breeders in North America. Their experts visit each breeder to ensure that the breeder meets a firm set of strict requirements and standards. Orvis also guarantees that chosen breeders provide thorough and documented medical records and updated shots upon delivery.
At Iowa Pointing Labs, we take this description to heart and make sure that you are working with qualified professionals from start to finish when searching for the best pointing lab in the country. We understand the importance of forming a long-lasting relationship between not only your hunting companion, but also your best friend.
